  2. L'e$kro's JDM RX8 6 speed

    I had a "R3 spec" starter even before I had a rx8: And I also swapped the leading coils for spare ones, to see if the car would pull better, as I find it a little slow, although it doesn't cut/misfire noticeably. The ones in the car (on the right) look quite new and are C stamped, but may not be original Mazdas? I've also swapped the leads for Magnecor ones I got cheap: I took the car for a spin around the block: it starts very easily on the new starter, even when the car is warm. The car doesn't seem to pull better through the rev range though. At least now that it starts easily when hot, I can possibly drive it this winter... Nico

    Not much happening with this, just gave it a wash before bird shit settles.. Also, ripped out the sound deadening from the bay.. Nico

    700 miles in the week end, quite a few sessions on track and still going... Only issue we had was that I lost 2 out of 3 downpipe nuts, so it was a little noisy and smelly on the way back to Cork!

  11. Annual Irish Rotary get together 2017

    Thank you so much for welcoming us at your place Dave, we had a great time! Sorry to hear abour "Buttercup Rex"(Owen's car), it's nothing that a set of fresh coolant seals can't sort though. And for your gearbox, fresh oil, maybe slightly thicker could help? Thanks again to everyone involved in organising this epic week end. Nico

    Thanks! I have footage for video#8 when we washed it after 17 years, but then i was making more progress everyday as the car was home, so I never bothered filming again.. maybe we'll make a "revisit" episode as the car is now Nico
