Croft circuit shakedown
« on: April 01, 2018, 08:04:55 AM »
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.

Damn that thing is fast!  Specs?

Seems like chassis, suspension and tyres setup was good, well balanced. Good job :)

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

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.

Standard ported 13b
KKK K27-7200 upgrade version.
RB single tail with 3" full system
AEM WI
R7420-10 plugs

Loads of other accompanying parts like a twin power,fmic,fuelling etc.

Fuel baffle tank and oil catch can

Complete stoptech brakes - discs/pads/lines in brembo caliper

Meister r zeta R coilovers with the softer spring option.

Ado8r 255 and 235

Only other track focused items are mazda rz recaros

Mapped to 1.25bar producing somewhere north of 400bhp.
Only dyno run i have was 391bhp and 370lbft on low boost 1 bar

Thanks for watching and i appreciate the comments

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.
