    New to rotary, 04 rx8

    How's things, JP has been trying to get me to buy a Mazda for years and I finally bought a project 2004 RX8 yesterday from another member on here... I've been interested in jap cars for years but am new to rotary, I sold a 200sx project recently which didn't work out (too ambitious) and had a non turbo s15 for years but know I have a pretty steep learning kerb ahead of me - looking forward to getting my new 8 on the road though I will probably have plenty of silly questions but JP can't say enough good things about this place and I see a few familiar names on here too (I was Trial_S15 on sxoc, dtd, etc.) so know I'm in good hands Cheers, Colin

    2007 RX8 PZ for sale

    Hi guys, time to move on from my pride and joy as another little one on the way and I’ll need a bit more space in the new year. I’m putting it on donedeal in the new year for €4950 but I’m open to offers from the rotary community. A lot of you know the car and saw it at Kirkistown in July but specs are as follows: 2007 PZ Brilliant Black (UK import) Looked after in my ownership exclusively by Shadow Rotary, last service was August this year. Run on 15W40 mineral oil and always premixed in my ownership. Regular oil changes every 3-4 months. Most recent compression test August 2017. BHR D585 coils. Oil cooler lines replaced with Racing Beat upgrades system. Usual PZ upgrades- Bilstein coilovers (front two dampers are brand new), Prodrive (Scorpion) backbox, OZ 18” alloys recently refurbed, PZ rear wing. Decat. Auxmod installation. Axialflow shortshifter. Reliability remap courtesy of Littlefeck. Customised piano black interior. Vredestein Sessantas in very good condition. Rust professionally taken out of rear arches over the summer with a high quality respray of rear quarters. Lots and lots of other little upgrades I haven’t mentioned. The car’s just gone over 80000 miles and the engine’s in great condition. I’ve really enjoyed the ownership experience over the last few years and have enjoyed turning back the clock on it. It wants for nothing and drives like a dream. I have another car and won’t be selling until the new year but get in touch if you want to chat about it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What Yaz's Think

    Yes Justin that's simply just it, the auld sludge Never bothered me but I never seen a bubble of sludge with my first RX8 because it was a 07 so I think it was a day or 2 after I posted this that I finally copped on as you rightly said it was just the heat of a long run that evaporated the foam away. Understanding of it completed LOL

    What Yaz's Think

    The gunk like a latte colour is tiny bit of moisture which occurs on small journeys. The fact that ye gave the car a good hard drive may have evaporated the moisture with heat so all good. Once ye have oil in there.... [emoji6]🤣[emoji1303] Sent from my SM-J330FN using Tapatalk

    The Barn Find

    Well done Nico, was admiring the car at Kirkistown. Now that I've watched the vids and know the back story, I'm even more interested in it. Lovely car and delighted to see it rescued from the shed. I wish you many years of happy motoring Brap Brap

    2007 RX8 PZ for sale

    Yes it could be wise to keep it, it depends on your circumstances and what you may do but in a few years time as it could be tricky to pick up a PZ or 8 in that good condition as your own. Like you could have to spend maybe more than what you are selling it for now to get it in that good of condition of your own car. I have no experience of one but I would consider a car capsule for it if you decide to keep it and I'm sure you would get someone to give you the space to store it. Good luck in with what you do with it mate Ohh btw dont worry about other cars on DD, the right buyer will come along for your car, patience is key

    Water in the Oil

    Howdy folks. I think covering the oil coolers with Mouse Mats will help this. I've had them covered since the cold weather arrived. I do find the heater is better this way. Mine's an '06 BTW. I keep it garaged and have been removing the dipstick to let the condensation evaporate. Doing this works with my Ducati which also suffers condensation. Pat

    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    Finally got around to fitting the water temp sensor adapter to the Premix5 (RX8 13B-MSP 6-port engine'd MK3 MX5) after I realised I wouldn't need to drain the coolant to do it! The components included: Racing Beat water temp sensor adapter, fitting nut that I ordered from Torques in the UK as the RB adapter hole was way too big, the Défi water temp sensor... All fitted together with PVC tape ("Plumbers' Tape"): Chopped the water line going from the engine-side of the thermostat to the heater matrix so I've the most accurate water temp reading: And now, ALL of the gauges work!! The left-most is the Water Temp, middle is Oil Temp & right-most is the Oil Pressure:
