Re: Aluminium bracket fabrication

If its flat 2mm plate then sandwich it between two bits of 10mm ply with the design drawn on the ply. drill all the holes first (which will be clean without burrs) then cut the shape out with a jig saw.
Hand file and fine emery the edges and that's you done.

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

I suggest that you get some Rose Joint boots/gaiters for those if you using the car regularly on the road or they will wear out quicker than a whores *%^$£
I still have my £16 eBay "specials" as fitted in 2014 on my car, after 30,000 miles and c12 track days with uprated ARBs too!

Re: 300 Mile Club (S1 RX8s) or 325 mile club for S2 RX8s

Its a very elite club the S1 350 mile. You really need a seriously long non stop motorway trip such as mine from Cumbernauld to Cheltenham.

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

Looking at those tyres if looked like you had some fun Chris :-) I'm sure it's obvious, but swap the front set to the rear for the next trackday to help even out the shoulder wear. I also find it's worthwhile to get a tyre fitter to reverse the tyres on the rims after a while, to move the worn shou...
