RX-8's / Castle Combe track day next week
« on: May 31, 2020, 09:42:31 PM »
Given the time spare and boredom i thought its time for a spanner check
Don’t normally do this - looks like I need to more often
Top front rear NS suspension bolt loose .
Tighten with thread lock
OS same arm - japspeed (or crapspeed I been told )
Joint is toast , so change both back to standard RX8 ones
Front next ,  changed old pads , very old pads

 Very worn
Then spanner check on the front
Only the lord knows how long I’ve been missing  this  bolt

Ah well
Looks like spanner check every track day from now

RX-8's / Wayne's boosted 8 project
« on: March 14, 2020, 10:48:44 AM »
Morning all
Thought I’d better start a project thread rather than keep adding to my “I’m new here thread “
So after two successful Greddy turbo conversions to my 8 it’s time for the next project ..
After reading Clive’s race car build thread I was inspired to lose the last bit of hair I have and copy it . So I’ll be selling the Greddy kit and replacing with an FD engine . I know it’s a lot of work but I’ll still have my standard engine car for Trackdays in the meantime .providing Trackdays go ahead due to the current pandemic .
I’ve been trolling for sale pages for the last few months and appear to have bought the basics to make a start , RX8 FD engine mount , engine , manifolds and a few other bits . First thing I’ll be doing is assembling all on the bench to see how it  bolts together and see what’s missing .
So if anyone has  any photos of a fully built up engine  with ancillaries on a bench please feel free to post them up . This will help me a lot as I don’t even know how it all bolts together yet .

MRC Forum Discussion / Advice needed on a noisey rear end
« on: December 08, 2019, 10:57:35 AM »
I ha e already posted this on RX8OC
And Mr Boosted had also advised to pretty much check everything mainly wheel bearings and diff or possibly diff mounts which is a fair shout as when I jack the rear up on the diff there is a fair bit of movement
Here goes if anyone else has any advice

Morning all
the last 2 maybe 3 trackdays I've done I'm hearing a horrible wurring noise whilst cornering .The best way to explain would be that on cornering its like in continually driving over rumble strips on the curbs. It sounds similar to a having a cracked rear disc which I don't have .other possibilities could be noisey diff or wheel bearings . it is quite difficult trying to explain the noise and cant really do a road test to show someone more experienced. Then , last night a few buds up and eureka …… . listen to see if the go pro picks it up . Thankfully it does , very well .So volume up please and advice on what it could be ?

« on: August 12, 2019, 09:14:56 PM »
Evening all
I’ve started a Build  thread which is about 6 months late but I  need some advice .
Greddy manifold has warped slightly so it in the shop getting flatted out . Next  stop new manifold gasket and a friend who’s car the ramp on says try these
“U need exhaust studs and nuts. Inconel. M10 x 1.5. They may even sell, inconel studs with copper nuts, which is fine.”
Or better still are the RX7 any better ??
Help and advice please
