What's up Chad, I haven't seen many Nordic Green 8s here, have you come out to the Sin City Rotary meets?

Thanks!

No I haven't. Didn't even realize there were meets. It seems like when I'm not working on the Rx8 (who buys an 8 for reliability?), my 280zx or making turbo pipes for older Subarus I'm doing something NOT car related.

Currently I'm part way through a radiator install. The Koyo is in, I'm waiting on the upper coolant bottle hose which I found out changed part way through 2004. The guy at Planet Mazda has been really helpful and will even drop it off for me when it finally gets here.

If Nancy is not too bad off tonight, I will try and make the meeting. Sure could use a chili dog.

. . . 8's are getting rare here in Vegas. Damn heat + neglect. Craigslist is full of 8's that need motors can get them for $1000-1500 all day long. (sometimes less, had an offer to buy one for $700[automatic 4port])

Just moved back to Vegas. Can anyone recommend a good shop to get work done? Plugs/coils, the eventual rebuild, etc...

Unfortunately the one rotary-specific shop we had here in town packed up years ago. Samurai Motorsports on Spring Mountain did a grand opening recently and could be worth a try for the usual things. As far as rebuilds, I took my 2005 to Neptune Speed in Huntington Beach, DNA Garage in Fountain Valley does great work too, a few other places in SoCal. That'd be the nearest places that operate primarily on rotaries. Feel free to add us on Facebook, local guys can usually link up with you and do the normal maintenance things for good prices!

Hi! It has been awhile. The last time we were in the same spot was here in Vegas.
