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

I clipped 1...massive shockwave through car..if you went over them i can  see suspension damage or a punctured shock tower.
There on the apexes of esseses and bobbies...so no cutting apexes...
In all fairness there after the red white chevrons so theyd pull you up on circuits limits in a race...
But the esseses 1 is close on the run through.
Ill post my vid tomoz you can see where they are gert big yellow rumble strips.

Clive
I like them tyres
I will send you a pm in the morning
As Jon will tell you , they are harsh , basically  bolt down ramps they put on roads
Thankfully they are on the inner apex not the outter ones

Wow big killer sausage things, mind you if you was over that far in a race you would get a penalty anyway!
