    Re introduction, i've been gone for years

    Welcome back! Shadow Rotary have become the go-to guys for rotary engine work over the past few years. Their contact details are listed here
  8. Some of the older users might remember me, i've a 1991 GTR FC and a 1993 FD. I'm looking for someone to do a bit of work on my FD. I hear Eddie is retired. I started my FD project years ago but made a few mistakes and left it sitting up since. Anyone out there that knows their stuff in the northern half of the country that would be willing to have a look at it ??

    Car storage

    Hi All Just seeing if you guys have any ideas related to car storage? My Rx8 has basically died, side seal has gone, clutch is going and super down on power. I can’t justify paying insurance and road tax on a car that can’t reallly be driven or relied on. Can’t sell it in its state and just not on the cards to get a rebuild done with shadow at the moment. So was thinking to take it off the road and store it somewhere until I’m in a better position to rebuild. Anyone know of a decent car storage place that is cheap or even free :-/ ? Thanks, owen

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    I doubt it because you should be able to drop all the coolant in the radiator and refill without problems. It seems to me the rad sealer may have done the trick for you as K-Seal done the trick for me a while back Just keep an eye on this big time as having coolant issues can result in engine damage if not kept under complete control as Im sure your aware If your in any doubt in the future as jp suggested just bring it to your specialist or mechanic for peace of mind

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    OK the problem has looked to have sorted itself out for the time being. Brought the car for a little spin, didn't overheat once. Coolant level stayed put for the moment. Could it have just been airlocked with the pushing of coolant out yesterday?? Fingers and legs crossed.

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    WOW, really surprised you didnt find the leak if you removed the little under tray under neath the radiator and battery tray as it gives great access for touching and looking at pipes, radiator and connections. All I can think of is maybe its someting to do with the heater matrix pipes inside the car, is your carpet wet in the passenger side??

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    What's a champagne test? Looked at the car today. Heated it up filled it with a few litres of coolant, no obvious sign of a leak anywhere. Still it's not holding the coolant but when the fan came on after having the car on for about 10 mins the tank overflowed. Anyone any further ideas to what this could be? Also when the we had the coolant tank with a decent level of coolant we added a rad sealer to it incase of a leak somewhere down the line.

    Fd parts wanted

    I don't know of anyone in Ireland breaking privately, try the FDOC forum in the UK - thing is by the time you bring it over it'll probably cost you similar money to buying from Elite who in fairness have been pretty reasonable with anything I've bought from them recently.

    Cold Start Problem

    This. ^^ Even if it has a cat, tow-start it by easing the clutch in in 2nd gear at about 30/40kph & with the key switched to accessory (2nd position from off) - then once it starts being able to accelerate itself, pull over & detach the tow-rope/bar. Then bring it for a good long drive, let it all warm up, & rev it to the limiter in 2nd or 3rd if you can once it's been running at least 10mins or been up to water temp for about ~5mins.
