Bugger, I'll be up that way for a birthday lunch which involves a stretch of dirt road, so not taking the 8.
Have to make my own cruise on Saturday!

I am having some work done on my gearbox and power steering rack connectors (It was playing up) plus a service...

It was just not ready in time to pick it up :(

I have a sexy Vel Red Mazda 3 Maxx SP as a loan car though hahaha Bloody thing has wicked fuel economy though 7.2L per 100km nearly 700km to a tank...

I use more than 7 litres in the RX8 just doing the warm up ;)

My whiteline underbody bits are a month late, and I was just told another one before they land on oz. Looking outside I don't feel so bad...brrr....

Would you beleive that it was just 1 tiny little vacuum hose... Sneaky bugger was hiding under the ABV Actuator and the EGR COntrol Valve...

Looks like a great cruise! Some very nice rides there, especially like that RX3 coupe with the pulsing PP :D

Was just down in Adelaide last week for 3 days and did not see one rotary the whole time i was their! Nice to see they do get out :thumbright:

Yeah cheers mate, this was a small one numbers wise due to late notice and the dodgy weather. But still had good quality rides rock up, lots of fun brapin side by side. That PP motor is for sale, he's got a 550hp motor coming!

Wow..looked like you guys had lots of fun!

Been snowed under with work and haven't had much chance to stretch her(rx8) legs.
Nursing a dead battery now. Hopefully no permanent damage to the cells through inactivity.

Cheers
