:c002: sorry to see this post, sadly I do know how you feel  :(

Malcolm,  Clive,  thanks for the comments but it won't be stationary long. It looks 99% a chipped apex seal but will only be sure when its in bits.  My last compression test was in the high 4s so it wasn't so much of a surprise tbh. Strangely it was still pulling harder than ever and only knew there was a problem below 3k.
Hoping to be back on track with a fresh engine before the pumpkins come out.

Neil, are you still going to be OK for 24 July?

Hi Casey,

Alas no after pulling ther plugs my motor is terminal.  Chuff chuff tsss.  Im hopeful to be back on track sometime this year but think the summer is done for me. I'll be in touch deffo about trackdays2019.

Cheers Jon,  yes i agree and I'm impressed it lasted so well. Compression pre failure was in the 4s so it was expected but it was running so well I was hoping to get the summer in first

Just to get it up and running again mate without losing too much summer.

Romping on a wet trackday,  can't beat it!!!!!

Just to sign off until she is ruining supercars again here is my fav photo

I (censored)ing love this shot, romping on a wet trackday. [ATTACH=full]3422[/ATTACH]

Short day!! This was the only session on track and I think I had already chipped the apex seal at this point. I was still outgunning that porsche but he was on my arse every braking zone. (censored) those porsches can stop well with a decent driver.  Anyhoo last one for a while.

Hi Casey, yes sorted and booked.  Thanks again for your help.

Hey Casey, the javelin discount link doesn't seem to be working, can you drop me a pm please.

Replaced my toasted bonnet release cable today and cleaned the car up ready for more track fun in may.  I'll be back with nor vid's. Casey/ Clive If there are any mrc/rx8 trackdays booked this year drop me a pm and do my best to attend work permitting.

Lol, getting it wrong.  He was doing it all day tbh

It is a circuit i know well admittedly, that porsche was being a bell blocking people most of the day. Many other much nicer Porsches were in attendance and were all showing excellent track etiquette so in no way a reflection.

This was my first trackday since removing my twins and fitting a single.

KKK K27-7200 upgrade version.

Thanks for watching and i appreciate the comments

Ok Video time, Ended up taking that V12 vantage and the porsche who was a bellend all day not letting people pass.

Had about 2 dry hours all day but well and truly flew the rotary flag for those hours with quite a few hairy moments in between.

please enjoy and comment, i have many many vids but this was memorable

For me on the day its the overall set up that has really impressed. Tyres/ suspension/ brakes all really connected with the power and I'm very very happy with how it did.

I have uploaded about 5 videos of the day and my previous events on twins are also still on there so feel free to have a look.
