    Hi guys, i'm picking up a 200t next week and everything looks great. It's only done 12k miles. After reading the description about it I was left slightly confused as it's down as having a "sport chassis" yet has the red brake callipers and Dunlop sport maxx tyres. I thought if it was sport chassis it didn't have red callipers and had goodyear eagle f1 tyres? Any help would be appreciated.
    Is there really much of a difference between sport/cup chassis anyway?

    Thanks

    If its red calipers will be cup chassis (unless they've sprayed them ofc like me).

    Not much of a difference anyway. Won't be long before you put coilies on it knowing you :wink:

    From what I can see they haven't been repainted. Think it's definitely a cup chassis. I've already ordered some eibach springs :smile:

    Fair enough! Cups also have 18" wheels.

    None of them have lsd. They all have an electric diff cup or not the only difference is slightly lower and firmer, 18s and red brakes.

    My cup came with an uneven arch gap between the front and back, it's bugging me so much. Need to sort some new suspension.

    Since it's related to this thread does anyone know the colour codes for the cup chassis springs. Mine seems to have two yellow dots on the rear springs but only one yellow spot on the front springs.
    The front struts springs and top mounts have just been replaced at Renault Manchester this week.
