Afternoon everyone,

Just doing a bit of planning for this weekend. We aim to start at 10am for the wheel alignments.

From your posts i put the rough order at:

10:00 DogsnutsEA
11:00 Critters
12:00 RX8Head
13:00 Druck
14:00 Dirtyleeds
15:00 Tankie

If its a problem i'm sure you can sort it out between yourselves!!

Engine strip down to start at 12:00 should take anywhere between 1-2hrs at a guess. This can be moved if its not convenient for people.

Snacks will be available throughout the day.

Thanks

Patrick

Brilliant day :thumleft:

Well done to Ali and Patrick and all the other staff at TW White and Sons for a great demo and chat/catchup... And especially thanks to Patrick for stripping... a 13b rotary engine (i know what you weirdos were thinking :wink: ) for us all to see how it goes together and the seals and and all the other parts that make this engine what it is.

And my car now seems lighter since it has had the wheel alignment done. :thumleft:

Great stuff guys :D

Had a fantastic day - great to catch up with everyone and watch that engine being stripped down. A big thanks to TW Whites for organizing it.

Glad to hear that everyone who had wheel alignment has noticed some change, and most have had improvement. I've also got a few carbon tipped rotor apex seal realignment tools going spare around here if you need any... :wink:

Thanks to Patrick, Ali and all at T.W Whites for a great day out. It was a treat to see the Supercharged RX-8, the RENESIS engine strip down at close-quarters, getting underneath the '8s up having their suspension geometry aligned, Patrick's fabulous Rally prepped Escort (smells like a real car!), and of course the 40th Anniversary edition.

Now I know what rims I want when this set corrode away ;)

Great to meet everybody who was there again :D

Didn't realize yours was in for an engine replacement, and just thought it was normal repair. Just read about it in another thread.

Many apologies...
