Ooh yes please Ranjan :thumleft:

Have emailed the following: :kinky:
Dear Ben,

Ranjan is in no hurry getting his car back, as he has at least another 50 cars to choose from.

Just a reminder you still owe me for that little favour that you didn't want broadcasted!!

Yours Sincerely

The potential chance to drool over a 720s provides an extra incentive to get this one booked. Am considering it, but you can forgive me a little reluctance given recent events...

Either way, I'm signed up for Brands in December, so will be getting back on that horse at some point.

Whenever I had a crash whilst racing I would always book something at Mallory because braking for the hairpin and trying not to brake for Gerards always made me realise why I like driving fast.
So glad you are not too hurt.

Nigel,

If the RX8 has not returned from Rotary Revs by this time I have decided to bring the 720S down; want to see how it feels round Gerards.
Also, you can play with it to your heart's content.

Ranjan.
I'm not needed then?
Tho that does look like i need to come along as i don't want to miss anything :lol:

Just read about your FD Alan, glad all appears physically well with you at least.
Not that I have any clue about these things, but this seems a decent opportunity at a very reasonable price for re-mounting the mechanica equus..

Mind you, December's not too far away either. ;)

I'll be in Leeds again next month, so I'll check in at RR to see how the leccy is doing. :lol:

So what’s a 720S ?
I have a spare Rx-8 if you prefer, I know you want to test the PZ suspension :)

Since I have invited a guest I had better bring my own car rather than have you trust your car to someone you do not know.

Just been informed by Rotary Revs that the car will not be seen by them until November; it was dropped off late August. Not a happy bunny.
These time scales are ridiculous, the car has only just come back from being with them for over 6 months for heaven's sake.
OK rant over.

Nigel,

If only I could but they did the rebuild so this is warranty work.
If you want a comparison, when I bought the 777 I booked it in to be fully painted, waited 2 weeks for appointment and then completed in 4 days!
And they were fully booked as well!

Buy them out Ranjan. Judging by the other threads concerning Revs recently, they appear to be in need of a shakeup.

Unbelievable and atrocious when you consider they can according to previous videos remove an engine in under 2 hours, strip it in under an hour, cleaning and examination being generous 2hrs build that’s Day 1. Day 2 build the engine 1hr, dress the engine 1hr, refit the engine connect everything back up, fill with fluids 2hrs.
At worst it’s a two day job for one person and considering it’s a warranty the word despicable also applies to this service.
