Re: 16MPG!!!! :@ ;) Normal? And pls help me understand street porting :)

Basically,if you're concerned about fuel consumption then you've bought the wrong car :-k

The words 'economy' and 'RX8' don't belong in the same sentence ;)

Re: Buy an rx-8 as a first car?

I've premixed my R3 since I bought it almost 5 ½ years ago - I've variously used Castrol Power 1 2T,Protek-R and currently Idemitsu rotary premix. I use roughly 125ml to a full tank,but don't bother if I'm only 'topping up'. Had it comp tested out of curiosity in Sept 2014,and it was 7.0 - 7.1 prett...

Re: The other...motorbike

Nice bike Chris, would you ever be tempted to get another one?.. It crosses my mind every time summer comes around,Ian, :lol: If I did it would have to be something very similar to my old Z1000R..an old-school sport bike. Got chatting to a guy who had a beautiful Z1000R done in white instead of gre...

Re: The other...motorbike

My biking days are a long way behind me,but my last steed,in the mid 80's,was a 1982 Z1000R Eddie Lawson replica,looking very much like this - same as Ian,I have no pics of my actual bike - only mine had a Metmachex box section swinging arm and multi spoke wheels,and that all-important - and loud! -...

Re: Premium vs standard fuel

My local station - my supply of Esso Ultimate - blocks access to the forecourt whilst a tanker is refiling the tanks..no doubt due more to the 'elf 'n' safety aspect,rather than concern for what Dave has just mentioned above ;)

Re: Advice about my (wheel) nuts

What make are the wheel nuts? I'd recommend something like Muteki's..they're tuner nuts,in steel with an external hex drive like a normal nut. They protrude enough to allow the supplied tool to fit without fouling the wheel.

I'll have my 8 litre pressure washer with me full of water,some of which will be used to wash the black dust off my wheels - should be plenty left to give yours a once-over ;)

Re: Increasing Oil level

Which now begs the question - have you noticed a significant drop in fuel economy :?: ( Bearing in mind that the term 'fuel economy' as regards an RX8,has to be taken very loosely :roll: )

This was a good show last year,in only it's second year,so I'm really looking forward to being there again - would be cool if we could all rendezvous at Sainsbury's and convoy in together ;)

Re: The Japanese Performance Show - Sun 19th August

All we need now is a rendezvous time..we need to be on stand by 10AM latest,so I'd suggest an 8.30 meet up..Stoneleigh is only about 4-5 miles from the retail park,which would give us plenty of time to get set up on site ;)
