Martin ..... you made a some major omissions from your list:

DO YOU LIKE GAZEBO FLYING ....... YOU CAN COME (please wear your best Superman costume)
DO YOU LIKE CATCHING DUCKINGS ..... YOU CAN COME (other model boaters may beat you to the duckling)
DO YOU LIKE HAVING A CAMERA POINTED AT YOU ..... YOU CAN COME (other participants are even less attractive)
DO YOU LIKE TREADING ON GOOSE POO ..... YOU CAN COME (there is a small charge for taking it home)
DID YOU VOTE FOR THE MONSTER RAVING LOONY PARTY ..... YOU CAN COME (you'll feel right at home!)

Mayhem 2015 is certainly the "Car Breaker"

Nasty noises coming from the RX8 today on the way home from work :(
Initial diagnosis is rear stationary bearing failure, so engine rebuild time



Oh the joys of being a Wankelist!

A stationary bearing is an indication that you are on a collision course!

Depends is you call 2500 quid expensive for a full rebuild by one of the respected Rotary builders
The full name is the rear stationary gear bearing

E2V...2500 quid for an RX8 rotary engine rebuild sounds well priced  :kiss:...in OZ they charge $120.00 for one litre of engine oil for the RX8 rotational donk {-)....

Like when the owners go to the petrol station it's OK to fill the fuel tank....but if she need soil...it's up to the Bank to get an overdraft first...... >>:-( .....Derek

That's not a bad price at all, my brother in law had a 2009 RX8 R3 which he's immediately regretted selling and trying desperately to get back. Hugely fun cars.

My Disco has behaved herself impeccably since the issue last week and is starting to be loaded up with all the stuff needed Tomorrow, once I've finished the boats that is!

 Given thought to previous years, I thought these were a good buy in my local QD store shop.

 They had 3 left after I bought 4 ... if anyone's interested!

There are so few model boat shows within reasonable access of East Berkshire, and like a number 27 bus they all seem to come at once this year.
Going to Mayhem at Wicksteed means I have to miss Beale Park which is on at the same time.
The Alfold Charity Model Boat Show is also good event, but this year is the weekend afterwards.

That's it, apart from mainly static indoor events which IMO are not as much fun.   Why ?
