General Technical / FD/FC Rotor housings for race car
« on: December 07, 2013, 11:12:12 AM »
Hi, I\'m building a FD powered RX8 race car, the cars nearing completion now and my engines just gone away to be re-built but everything in the motors shot and I need new rotor housings.
I will buy new housings if need be but I\'d rather source some good second hand ones. I\'ve been offered a RX7FC turbo 2 car that my mates had from new that\'s got a mint engine in it that\'s done a genuine 19k.
The cars rotten so its not worth re-building and he\'s offered it me for £500 but I only want to buy it if the FC rotor housings are identical to the FD ones.
Any advice appreciated. Cheers Martin

Rotary and General Chit-Chat / 450bhp 20b Mazda3 race car
« on: December 22, 2012, 09:04:45 PM »
I’ve done a search and I can’t find any threads relating to this.
As title says it’s a Mazda3 20b peripheral port 450bhp race car that competes in the Belgium touring car series.
I don’t really know much about the BTCS but it looks as though it’s a bit of an anything goes series, a bit like the Euro Saloons or Northern Saloons over here but on a bigger budget
Anyway here\'s a couple of links, one to the website of the place that built the car and a couple of YouTube clips of the car in action. I think the cars been pretty successful and sounds ace.

RX-8 Photos and Videos / RX8 with RX7 Race car build
« on: December 11, 2012, 11:00:49 PM »
Hi, following on from my previous post this is the start of the build thread for my RX8 race car.

I’d been doing track days for ages and a couple of years ago I decided to go racing so I did a bit of suspension work on my Impreza and the necessary safety stuff and did a few races with the Nippon challenge. The Scoob although down on power compared to some of the stuff I was racing with was pretty good and in the few races I did with the Nippon I ran at the front. The Nippon is good fun but I really wanted to race in the Euro saloons but the Scoob was going to need a 15k injection to get me near the front in the form of an engine and diet. I gave it some thought and I couldn’t justify spending that sort of money to end up with something that would only be on par with what some people were racing in the Euro saloons anyway. I decided to build/get a new race car and it was a toss-up between a classic Scoob with a N/A Engine and sequential box converted to RWD and an RX8 with a different engine.

As I was debating which way to jump I got offered an ex-factory backed RX8 Britcar being sold by Steve Gugliami of Gugliami Motorsport. My initial thoughts were to take the near standard RX8 engine out of the car I was being offered and fit something else as this was car had a well sorted chassis and I figured it could take some more power. Steve told me Mazda had pumped about £500,000 into the RX8 britcar project and with them racing in Britcar they had loads of time to develop the cars with paid touring car drivers in them. When I went down to view the cars I realised there were three cars on offer, the 96 and 98 car which were just as they were raced in 95/96 season and what I think is the 97 car which was being converted to a different spec to race in a higher class but Mazda pulled the plug on the RX8 Britcar project half way through the build in favour of the MX5.After going down to look at the Number 96 car I realised there was a lot more potential in the project but also a lot more work so after a bit of haggling with Steve I ended up buying all three cars with the intention of selling the other two and some of the spares package that came with them to end up with what I wanted at a sensible price.

I’ve sold the 98 car and I’m just finishing freshening up the 96 car ready to sell in the New Year.

More picturs to follow.

I saw this area had alot of views and usage, so I thought I would ask here. I have two PC\'s at home which everytime I try to post, it says message too short has to be more than 10 characters. Yet at work and on my iphone i don\'t get this error happen. I can quite clearly see this is not forum script related as thers more than enough replies going on :P I have Win 7 IE 9 and I have cleared all cookie, temp data, reset to defaults, reset security zones, tried changing encoding to different fonts etc. Still to no joy. Very strange and frustrating considering I wrote such a long intro passgae and it then said error :/
