  1. Hey JP when I’ve checked with a multimeter it was fine. Problem is that it’s intermittent... There is an alarm alright... The original plan was to daily the rx8 for the winter, so that’s done. I’m in love again with the mx5. Way quicker, and half the petrol!
  2. This sunday I wanted to drive to the local cars and coffee and the car decided otherwise. Flat battery. As I’m not looking forward to searching for an intermittent electrical fault, I decided to tax the mx5 and daily it again.

  4. Trying the Tapatalk craic for hosting pictures Tein coilovers Installed No more oil burps, thanks to Woolite NCT yo! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Jamie, could you post screenshots of the steps, as the links in your post all redirect to the main forum index? I'm following the instructions, but it only allows me to upload pictures that are a few Kbs in size (Max total size 0.03MB), same limitation as when I try to upload pictures in my posts directly. It may have something to do with me logging in with my FB credentials instead of a proper user account? Thanks! Nico
  6. Welcome Paul! Lovely FC! There are a few in the country, not that many though! Whereabouts are you based? Nico
  7. Tein Basis coilovers! My image hosting-company went belly-up so I'll have to find another one later, and upload pictures Nico
  8. 2018 Update. Failed NCT on a few things: -Front shocks imbalance. Annoying as they are Mazdaspeed ones, and I got rid of the oem ones.. -Rear tracking. Last time car passed with different tyre sizes at the back! -Rear tyre past the limit. -Rear parking light (it's dimmed, seems there is a bad ground or something) Nico
  9. Thanks! R26B! The FC is off daily duties for the winter, I’m driving the Rx8 at the moment... I’m building a spare engine for the Fc, but it will take a while... I’ll keep you updated with progress Nico
  10. I robbed 20mm spacers and front GTR wheels with NS2R tyres from the FC: It clears the brakes, barely! Also, it will need 20mm spacers at the back to bring them out like at the front. Tyres are grippy, I can hammer the brakes without locking them I’ll take better pictures when the weather won’t be so crappy.. Nico
  11. I don't know all the trim levels on FDs, I thought the RZ spec'd ones were late models (97 or 99 ones, and the type R, etc..) I didn't know the pistons were staggered on these, i thought just the mounting lugs were different, good to know! Nico
  12. Good man! Aren't late spec calipers the same size pistons, with longer mounting lugs to accommodate bigger discs? Anyway, 1" master cylinder for 4 pots will do perfectly I'm sure! Other cars with similaly seized calipers have 1" MCs... Nico
  13. Thanks JP! Sorry JP, I ripped it out and it went to the bin straight away. You could possibly remove it delicately from rx8 leather seats, but otherwise you can avoid sacrificing good seats by purchasing aftermarket heating elements from eBay/Amazon, may turn out cheaper, plus it will come with wiring, relay and switches. If you do sacrifice rx8 seats for the cause, the hard covers on my seats have seen better days :hint: Nico
  14. Bigger M/C will push more cc per mm of travel, so it will compensate for larger calipers (bigger bore pistons or more of them), as these will take more volume of fluid to travel. If you use a bigger m/c with same size calipers, it will take less travel to brake but the pedal is going to be more firm. You can compensate that with a bigger booster, but what you gain in bite you lose in ability to modulate. Going one size above on same calipers should be fine though, that's what i've done on my mx5 (15/16" instead of 7/8", along with the double brake booster from the sports model). A 1" m/c + associated brake booster should be fine on a standard FD No. I just know that had a look at my neighbour's Evo, and thought it could be a better fit than the Subaru one I already have, as the vacuum port was on the engine side.
