    Thought I'd do a progress thread for this as I'm sure it's going to evolve and progress even more with plenty of track action and nurburgring videos etc.

    Some may have seen my previous red Renault Megane rs250 on social media at some stage and this is hopefully a decent successor of that car which I regret selling. I sold my Audi TTRS for something cheaper to track and this already converted car was for sale and I had to buy it. I've had it about a month.

    2007 ultra red 197 F1
    Rs250 engine
    630cc injectors
    SC autos boost pipes
    Some for of front mount intercooler
    Rear cage
    Sabelt harnesses
    Corbeu clubsport seats
    Bilstein b14s
    300bhp 340lbs torque.

    This spec would seem enough for most but I had to put my spin on things so my parts list that I have fitted or ordered

    Recaro profi spg (new covers and cushions from recaro)
    In date schroth harnesses
    Gaz gold coilovers with topmounts
    Forge hard pipe kit
    95mm airtec intercooler
    Megane radiator
    Megane fan
    Oz alleggerita road wheels
    197 wheels with Michelin slicks for track
    Braided brake lines
    Removed the f1 stickers (sorry)
    #trackobsession sunstrip
    R250 MW private plate off my Megane
    Black projector lights

    Today we at TRACKOBSESSION ran a power to weight shoot out day at AMD Essex with a decent turn out with Brown and Greesons doing the weighing. Unfortunately the Dyno broke 5 cars before me so I cant say what power she run but the car weighed 1198kg so 198kg lighter then my Megane which was 1396kgand should be roughly the same power and torque. bd8884930a0610dcc08bfabe396f0257.jpg 096d3c11ebd5a59cdd0e989630fa9fdb.jpg 1ae806c6cefe10c21800e059ccac01f4.jpg

    Cheers lads. Fitted a new inlet temperature sensor yesterday as I was missing it when swapping boost pipes and the car felt quick but I'm having an issue of loosing throttle when I come to a stand still so looking to fit an r26 throttle body to see if that helps

    It will do, I believe the 225 ecu has trouble reading the entire 'scope' of the 250 throttle body. I think you'll need an adapter plate though as I'm sure the bolt patterns are different, shouldn't be too difficult to overcome though.

    That looks lovely and seriously purposeful. Engine bay is neat, great job there. Also, Alleggeritas look the business, but I might be biased:smiley:
