    Fl22 in stock

    Does anyone know a place that keeps FL22 coolant for my 07 rx8 in stock in/around Dublin? Was hoping to do a coolant flush this weekend and I'd rather not order off the net and pay a ton on shipping and have to wait another week. She does be getting a bit warm in this weather! I suppose I can also find distilled water in any tescos etc..? Cheers

  7. Hi Guys, Thinking of getting back into a rotary machine and i don't see Eddie Doyle's number here..... he is meant to have rebuilt the car i'm looking at and want to check it was rebuilt. The seller doesn't have paperwork so i'm following up this way. Can someone pm me the number if they have it? Thanks Will

    Wish I could have kept it but that the way the cookie sometimes crumbles, theyre class thou, never pictured a woman behind the wheel lol

    Where is pz now??

    Not sure if that woman still has that PZ but the last time I seen it she was driving it in the Cleveragh area of Sligo Town and it looked mint but that could be 2 years ago Im afraid. Hopefully I might run into someone that would know more here in Sligo.

    Series 8 FD3S Type R

    Thanks guys, yeah I honestly am wired up and cant wait to get behind the wheel. I think this is going to be the longest wait now for the next month before I actually see it in the flesh. According to the auction sheet it has had a respray in Japan by the original owner, and sprayed in the original red so it should be in a nice condition. Will get a compression test done before collection but worst case, the engine needs some work ,then its a great chance to upgrade lol

    Colin's 04 rx8

    After being sat up for a few months the battery wasn't holding charge, as it happens I had only just replaced the battery in my wifes jeep which was being scrapped so I pikeyed it... It was a little bit big so I cut one end of the battery tray and it was a snug fit Then the exhaust split, rearmost section parted company with the backbox at the final joint due to rust so back under the spares car to swap them over. The spare is not in great shape but I should get a few months out of it... Needs some work underneath, which I'm hoping to get sorted in the next few weeks, but I'm booked in for the trackday at mazdafest so might see if I can source some goodies first and get the other sorted afterwards

    Colin's 04 rx8

    Been a busy few weeks, I’ve been using it as my daily since the end of May so I had to replace the track rod end, pulled the one off the spares car and swapped it over – good as new Got some second hand OEM B-coils and magnecor leads from Shane Rabbit (thanks man), a K&N panel filter and serviced it. Read on here to replace the oil, go for a quick drive and replace again to flush out the oil in the oil coolers, glad I did because that was the first fill of fresh oil after only 10km!!

    1 -> 2 gear grinding at high rpms

    Sounds like a dragging clutch. Although your clutch will stink if you ride it too much and it gets hot. That said, 1st to 2nd is a big jump with a big speed differential in gears. At high revs it can be very tough on the syncros. IIRC, Mazda even specifically advises against doing it in the manual. If it's really fucked and the clutch is fine you might have to double-clutch it because the syncro's gone.

    Hi Terence, thinking of selling my Black 2007 PZ as I have another performance car purchased this week. It's getting NCT this Saturday so if you are interested in viewing after that let me know. I'm in County Galway

    1 -> 2 gear grinding at high rpms

    Hi! I have recently bought an RX-8 231, the car is nearly perfect, good condition, fairly new engine and paint, the interior is fine etc... when i test drive it everthing looks fine, and the same for the firsts weeks, but when i tried to redline in 1st gear (i didn’t did it the firsts weeks) it grinded and wouldn’t shift higher than 6-7’000 rpm’s and also when i did an uphill start, the time that the clutch fully engages the car shakes and it smell a bit like burning clutch any one here had the sames isues?
  25. Sorry @Aido 8 if that sounded anyway condescending that was not my intention. Mineral oil is not the best oil but is by far the one less likely to do damage if you buy a different brand. Stay on top of regular oil changes and it'll be fine. As far as where to get it, any motor factor will have it. You just might have to ask. I've never had an issue in several different suppliers.

    Pz

    Just trying to give you abit of food for thought here but if you went the UK root keep in mind it's about 1500euro for get vrt , then to get it home thats about 500 to get it brought over. My point is if you feel you have to go there you could still pick up a rx8 here with a good body and compression and if done right you could have a beauty of a car by spending that saved 2000 notes on some mods. But if you are hell bent that it has to be a PZ then that's different. Good luck
  28. It would be useful if someone could please recommend a place in Dublin where davabo could purchase some mineral oil. Im in Sligo and I only seen it in the classic car section in Halfords and a few times in Tesco. @littlefeck I was more than surprised he seems to be almost afraid to use only mineral oil is why I'm asking . If you feel I need advice on oil I am always great full for advice from everyone but for years I'm well aware on what people use in their rotaries. Regarding my warranty on my rebuild any semi synthetic 10/40 but not magnetic is what is recommended. Just for shits and giggles I remember a specialist saying to me never use anything but mineral but that same guy does not always choose to put rx8 parts in his rx8 rebuilds lol. Not ditching mineral but when my warranty runs out I would be more than happy to use it also
