Shout out to Nick from MOT also for being kind enough to do a refund so close to the day.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Tried out that Armor all headlight restoration wipe kit today, since I’ve got a pretty fogged up headlight. It’s not come out perfect, but initially at least vastly improved:

Re: ***TRACKDAY Mallory Park - Wednesday 16th September SOLD OUT***

Think it's through 'A' then wrong way round the track for 100yds to the pits entrance? My technique was to hang about there until somebody else came along then follow them. Thanks - a few minutes after that about 20 other cars showed up at once and someone to let us all in. Not sure if I missed a p...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

After finally being pushed over the edge by a vibration around the rear shelf area on the way back from brands yesterday, I got Kim to locate the noise as the amplifier. In order to avoid any actual effort, I cut up and wedged some craft foam into gaps between the amplifier and the shelf metal. Hav...

Unfortunately, Javelin cancelled the tuition so wouldn't have mattered if you had booked - as I did! Not sure how it'll go with going in someone else's car, given the current situation.

This thread is making me very nervous as i need to get fergus to do my geometry soon.
It’s definitely possible for the majority of the bolts to be seized and if that’s the case (i.e not just 1-2) then there’s not much he can do

I know because that’s how it went for me

Re: Best way forward on suspension?

Those prices from Goobie still seem on the money unfortunately. Im in the process of replacing the front and rear subframes and all control arms. I didnt want to go aftermarket with either arms or bushes so i got a quote from mazda - £950 for just the arms, not including any of the bolts. Ended up ...

Re: Best way forward on suspension?

superpro bushes would be a significant downgrade. just something to consider... I’m not sure that is the case for the SuperPro ones. They have the metal inserts and they have the voids that give it caster control for example. They mimic everything about the OEM bushes. I’m curious to understand mor...

Best way forward on suspension?

I recently took the car down to FW Motorsports to get the suspension geometry done, however (and I feared this might be the case) the vast majority of the adjustment bolts were seized solid and nothing could be done with it. The trip was originally inspired by the fact that it pulls to the left and ...
