AW I was going to have a lie in
I,ll do my best but at £30 thats only a tenner apiece if you can get 3 in one garage
If we could organise 3 or 4 together in advance we,d be up for that.
It,s always a nicer day in one group.

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

Thers a lot of advantages to smaller diameter wheels for the track to my mind and as you say lower gearing (so more acceleration) Less unsprung weight (more acceleration and speed) Just lowers the car and keeps wishbones at same angle Theres a big difference in the weight of different manufactures t...

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

I,m in favour of smaller diameter wheels for track days. Lowers the car quickly and evenly without compromise on the road I to have a sloping drive Better shocks will always give you improved handling If you put a mark on one ceration on each shock and upright you can adjust with the C-spanner witho...

Re: ***TRACKDAY - Oulton Park, Friday, 22 July***

Ive raced at most circuits in the country (exept Knock Hill thats just to far) Oulton Park is the best it has every thing . Every type of corner you could wish for. Blind crests and enough straight to get you to the next corner at a decent speed. If you have to choose between Oulton and two other tr...
