Re: Series 2 oil filter on Series 1?

Should be fine, alot of people use the series 2 filters as they are larger. Might have to file down one of the brake line plastic brackets. Will not fit if you are running a sandwich plate on the filter pedestal for gauges as extra height in filter will foul on the firewall. I believe there is a dif...

Re: Rotary Revival 7

Re: What work did you do on your car today?

Changed my rear brake pads this afternoon. The old crumbled EBC redstuff pads were almost to the backing plate.

Got project mu nc800 pads in there now.

Power is addictive.

I'm trying to sort out the handling first before adding more power.

Re: Rear lights cover

I was drying the fish tank in my passenger tail light last weekend, and it didn't have a metal cover it.

Haven't checked the drivers

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend due to work commitments.

Re: SOHN Adapter oil metering pump questions

For mine, I ordered a 2L catch can off eBay and tapped the drain bolt to install a barb fitting to feed the adapter via oil suitible hose.

It's installed in place of the airpump, zip tied to the airpump bracket.

Re: RX-8 Nationals 2017 - Saturday, 4 November 2017

Don't be put off by money. In street setup, the rx8 is a very capable and fun machine on the track. Helmets can be bought for around $100 new (just make sure it has the correct australian standards sticker) The only other thing to do is flush the brake fluid, which if you are keen to DIY will cost a...

Re: Clutch Issue

When is the last time the clutch has been flushed and bled? Could just be old fluid or need the clutch replaced.

I can't really give too much more advice as haven't had any problems with my clutch
