Lol yeah she was a trickster that's for sure. Never even saw it coming.

Do any of us MD peeps regularly attend any of the local meets or have our own? I know of a ton of reoccurring meets MD. Just never really seen any RX8 guys out at them. I'd love to meet up at a Cars & Coffee soon and hangout with everyone. Just take your pick of the one at Maple lawn, Timonium, Hunt Valley, Annapolis, Katies in Great Falls, or any of the others lol.

Hey bro nice to see you on here. I've not been hitting up the shows or meets for almost 2 years now. I am trying to get back to the same with meet ups near Annapolis MD. Glad you got a NEW RX8! We are dwindling fast...

This RX8 club regional forum used to have meets and joint events with the MD folks. Things like a RX8 club crab/clambake on Kent Island,MD; going to the MD BBQ Auto Show and Meet in Baltimore ( I took a second place in the Mazda category in my 2008 40th Anniversary Edition, a few years back); and having joint meets in neighboring states of DE and PA and Southern NJ at tracks and other venues, with the MD folks invited.

Group has been quiet lately. I know the DC area in the past has had an active RX7/RX8 enthusiasts group based around Rosenthal Mazda. Maybe checking in with those folks could alert you to events to attend.

Cars and Coffee is also a good place to connect.

Hey thanks man. I've been off the forums for the last month because it's been a crazy month lol. Birthdays, weddings, concerts and more. No big car meets yet. Lots of time away though and lots of miles on the new 8 lol. I'm going to be away the next 2 weekends as well as I'll be down in SC for a family vacation in Hilton Head. May or may not drive the 8.

When I get back though I'd love to try and meet up with some other rotards at a local C&C. Either the one in Annapolis, Maple Lawn, Timonium or Hunt Valley. Maybe even Kate's C&C down in Great Falls, VA if anyone else is down to meet up and cruise down? I used to go to Kates then stop at Maple Lawn on my way back since ML starts after Kates usually starts thinning out.

A Clam/Crab bake sounds pretty amazing too. Maybe we can make it a DMV area meetup at Kent Island at the big spot under the bridge. If there's interest I could post it up on RX7Club too and try and turn it into a DMV Rotary meet.

Needed: M12 x 1.25 x 50 mm or 55 mm long bolt, grade 12.9

Anybody know where to get that locally, or on teh Intarwebs?

Looks like my go-to source, Maryland Metrics, has gone out of business. They aren't answering their phone or emails and are marked as "closed" on Yelp.

I can find the bolts on feeBay, but I'd have to buy a pack of 50 for $40. I need two...

It's for the lower shocks mounts in the rear. I need to move the coilovers further inboard to stop the springs rubbing on the threaded adjusters. I'm nervous about adding more washers without having more threads.

I don't remember exact measurements, but say the stock bolts engage 20 mm of thread. I'm moving the shock out (in) 15 mm, leaving 5 mm of thread engagement with stock bolts. That's a Nope. Need moar thread...
