Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Now we seem to have a car thats starting to do what it says on the tin, I'm already preparing for 2018

Managed to get a set of wets from the BTCC Team Dynamics team, so I haven't got to worry about the rain anymore :great:

I have had my 18 year sitting in the garage FD calipers refurbed by Biggred,so tomorrow I will start looking at making the brackets to get them on the back.

Had a look at the rules and it only says brakes to be operational on all four wheels, so no messing around fitting a hand brake  :)

RX-8 Bias brake pedal box with its two master cylinders have arrived in kit form, pics to come.

Quick update Grant and all/

Pedal box is installed and as of yesterday the car is sitting in Jon's garage for a full rewire to get rid of all the offending stock RX-8 we dont need any more plus redo all the wiring mods the poor thing has had to give the car a safe wiring system / and hopefully shed some weight
All the best Clive

Starting tomoz on redundant engine loom plugs, cut off wires pulled out and de pinned at ecu plug.  Check still starts then move onto cabin looms and fuse boxes. Working weekend nights then with 2 days hols got a full uninterrupted week on it so I can get my head in zone which is essential with electrics.
