Re: £999 track/sprint project - adventures in the Japanese Sprint Series

Thanks Pete. Doubt it'll make any difference, but Snet's a fast track so every little helps! :lol:

Re: £999 track/sprint project - adventures in the Japanese Sprint Series

T minus 4 days to round 1. Pretty nervous now, I've got to admit! Thought I'd give the old girl the first clean since last summer... https://farm1.staticflickr.com/803/40315397604_982f3c43d9_z.jpg https://farm1.staticflickr.com/866/27195889598_e4e43dcc73_z.jpg ....and then couldn't resist attacking ...

Re: Mazda Sprint Series (Javelin) - Half Price Rounds

Round one of the inaugural Japanese Sprint Series is swiftly approaching - Cadwell Park, Saturday 7th April. There are 54 entrants so far, but it looks like we're still the only RX8 signed up! Anyone else fancy embarrassing some GT86s with us? :D

Sorry - I have the RX8 back but I'll be at Cadwell park. One day I might be able to make one of these [emoji23]

Re: £999 track/sprint project

With race day fast approaching it still felt like we had a lot to do. Aside from anything else, we had to get the track wheels from mine down to Pete (he’s going to be support car for the first few rounds) and the RX8 back up to me once it was back together. Pete’s been a busy boy over the last coup...

Managed 300 miles from a tank in the M5 today. 95 quids' worth of super unleaded. I'm not working that out [emoji23][emoji23]

Re: £999 track/sprint project

Blimey, I've not updated this for a while! Time to sort that out. What follows will cover the last 3 months or so, so apologies if it's a little garbled in places :lol: First up was to get the RX8 back down to its winter hiding place in Kent. Not wanting to face the train back (and also because I fa...

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

Busy day today... changed all of the oils, new EBC discs and pads all round, bled the new brake lines and offered up the cage ready for welding, and got it back on the floor for the first time since October! Set up a little timelapse vid as well if anyone's got 4 minutes to kill [emoji23] https://yo...

Re: New Performance coil system £269.99

Cheers Carl. Really just wanted to see if anyone's tried them on track yet, otherwise the price and warranty are hard to argue with :)

Assuming the warranty extends to track use (?) I'll get a set on order. Happy to be guinea-pig for track use if needs be :thumleft:

Re: New Performance coil system £269.99

Looking for a set of new coils for our sprint car. These look good for the price, is anyone able to comment on the advantages/disadvantages against something more tried and tested like the D585s?

TIA :)

Re: Mazda Sprint Series (Javelin) - Half Price Rounds

No probs. Still plenty of competition if you're on your own in class - you can battle for overall position (and go chasing MX5s/GT86s) :D

Re: Mazda Sprint Series (Javelin) - Half Price Rounds

It's a multiplier, so the RX8's 1300cc counts as 1950cc. Essentially in amongst the Clio sports, Civic Type Rs etc. I'm running in class J9 this year.

Hi Wayne There are basically two series: 1) Javelin Sprint Series - a general series for all makes, which is mostly where I competed last year 2) Japanese Sprint Series - this is new this year. It is run by Javelin and takes on the same format, but is an amalgamation of what used to be the Toyota, M...

Re: Mazda Sprint Series (Javelin) - Half Price Rounds

Right, come on you lot - Round 1 @ Cadwell is open, and there are even RX8 specific classes this time! Anyone fancy having a go? It's probably the cheapest entry into competitive motorsport, and there's even a class for stock RX8s so you don't need to worry about having all the track bling ;) Plus, ...
