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

yeah, know that Chris , maybe wrong choice of words :thumright: Its for putting the new oil in :) , yes the gearbox can be done from inside the cabin, but the diff is the one with access issue, vacuum pump thingy sucks up the fresh stuff and reverses/puts the new stuff in https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm...

Planning to change the diff and gearbox oil. Any recommendations for a cheap ( eBay special :) ) vacuum pump to do the job?

Thanks
You don't need a vacuum pump as the drain plugs are at the bottom on the gearbox and low down on the diff.

Re: Basic track day prep advice please

Try to get a passenger ride first if possible as a car on track is very different to one on the road and definitely book a tuition session. Use your mirrors a lot to look out for faster cars coming up behind. If you get into a load of traffic and feel pressured then ease off and let them all pass yo...

Received an email today informing there was no stock and no expected delivery date for more stick, no wonder they were cheap. Was offered Dunlops as a replacement equivalent, only £60 more per tyre!

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY, Mallory Park (Leics): Thursday 9th Aug^^^

My favourite feature at Mallory is that you are allowed to overtake on the Devils Elbow and around Gerrards which surprised a Caterham and 911 p, and me, last time I was there.
At around 60 seconds a lap you get plenty of practice at the bends and braking points, no time to forget!

Re: Clive's 450 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

I remember my first track experience at Castle Combe when you passed me in the RX4 coming out of Quarry, on the left of course!

They were most enjoyable track sessions this year at JDM "dicing" on Daves tail and then having Gareth on mine for several laps.
