Rotary and General Chit-Chat / Re: RX-7 vs RX-8 track time comparison
« on: November 26, 2020, 09:47:22 AM »
The next car will have most of the same parts. I will probably do the odd track day, but it'll be more of a road car. I don't fancy crashing another one, so would be picky about which tracks to visit

Both former cars now. That RX8 had Cusco sway bars but otherwise stock. The FD was extensively modified and was on a EFR 8374 IWG turbo running about 1.1 bar so based on others with that turbo, I would estimate at least 450bhp.

On the Bentley straight the FD could hit 135mph, whereas the RX8 just tops 110mph.

I only managed a handful of laps in the FD, so there's room for improvement. Some of the other FD guys I've been there with have managed sub 2.20 laps.

I honesty don’t know
Good for 400 I hope

The IWG EFRs are known for not to be able to hold low boost levels without creeping. My 8374 wouldn't stay less than 0.9 bar. You'll be above 400bhp even at that level on an 8474.

Fun thread. The only track I've driven both cars at is Snetterton. 2 dry days in an 8 with a best lap of 2.31. I did 2.25 on my 2nd session in the FD before play time was abruptly ended lol.  The long straights really favour a powerful car, even though the RX8 is more capable through the faster corners like Coram.

Thats to me as i put a fair bit of work his way,  and do not set him any time limits.. my eunos  was done by him on that criteria, public first.
I suspect 2.5 to 3k. Introduced via me. Last 7 he done was mint.

Ah fair enough. Still very reasonable if the quality is good.

£2k for a full respray! That's cheap. If he's good I'll have to bare that in mind. Plenty of things to spend my money on first though...

Was cheap considering the parts. Even with the risk of needing another rebuild after sitting so long. I can imagine some people snapping that up just to get their hands on the RZ Recaros as they command ridiculously silly money.

Will be interested to read your opinion of the track afterwards. Haven't heard much about it but given that it's one of my closer options I'll probably give it a go next year.

Belongs to Craig at Top Gear Stockport.  I've seen his build thread on another forum and the amount of custom work he's done and the standard of the car is very impressive. Saw it in the flesh at japfest a few years ago too. Made mine look rather shabby parked just behind it... Great buy for someone.

Hi MightyCondor - great to see and chat to you on Friday at North Weald about your rotary "fleet"  :13:

For some reason, notification of your payment didn't come through to the Team here. Not a problem, as I can see the forum system has registered your subscription, even if it didn't tell us  ;)

I've now manually upgraded you account to Full Membership status and sent an email to Lisa to ask if she would be kind enough to send an email to REIS to confirm your membership  :)

 :welcome: to the MRC and I hope you get your FD back soon  :great: In the meantime, enjoy your RX-8!

Thanks Casey, was a pleasure to meet you too on Friday.  Hope you had as much fun on the day as I did.  It was a good way to rekindle the rotary love after a challenging year of not driving the FD.  :icon_thumleft:

Thanks for taking care of the membership issues.  I'll have to have a more in-depth browse of the site when I get some time.

Hi Alex, I see you paid your subscription on Thursday and I've been away a few days. The process to update your profile to Full Club Member is still manual. However, I've done the change now so you have access to PM's.
 :welcome: (back?) to the MRC, I see you first registered your account on here back in 2004  :)

I'm in the same boat as Alex was previously.  I have just renewed the insurance for my FD with REIS and they are requesting proof of club membership.  As I only paid up during the week, I am still awaiting activation.  Can I request the help of one of the mods to get the required info over to REIS?

Thanks.

If I hadn't just blown a lot of my hard earned going single in my FD then I'd be very interested.  My main concern would be that I've never sat in a Westie and there's a good chance that at 6'4+ I simply wouldn't fit!
