    Exhaust manifold needed

    i actually have a stock one that i took off and replaced with the ebay toyosport. there's a crack in one flexi. I'd assume you'd need a replacement flexi and some welding skills to fix it up. i'm not sure how you'd judge whether it's repairable but happy to look at it and provide photos...

    R20 BTG - 200 Cup Track Car Blog

    love the detail in the posts on this project - incredibly helpful for us amateurs trying to copy bits :smiley: (or avoid problems in the case of your gearbox...) What's the wheels you're running on track? I've got the 200 cup wheels but they do seem a little lost in the wheel arches - when i...

    yeah just need to pick some harnesses - ideally black with yellow logo detail to match the theme! that'l probably finish the clubsport main pieces, just need to get some tracks booked in now... preferably with other clios i can follow and learn from :D

    Yellow

    Cage (JP Cages) has arrived :grimacing: looks lovely, very similar yellow to the car paint which is nice. going to have a bash at fitting this weekend. also seat subframes etc arrived but not sure these are going to go the distance.. they're just too tall. details on...

    Pole Position Seat Mount / Sliders / Harnesses

    That’s a nice solution. I can drill my side mounts to angle them forward but i’m sure there’s a better option. I’m tempted to just return the lot and go with the direct to floor side mounts from Supreme. surprising how little information about seat mounting is online (not just clios either!)

    Pole Position Seat Mount / Sliders / Harnesses

    Ok - so finally the parts arrived.. generally... eugh. The (official) recaro adaptor subframes specifically for Clio Mk3: 1. they do not direct fit to the car, they rely on you using the standard sliders off the stock seats. 2. they are TALL .. i mean, a slim low profile bucket seat with...

    Yellow

    hah - seen here after demolishing 5000 flies: obviously the clio is not the aston - but abnormally i drove them back to back and the clio steering feel (which is probably also partly due to the zero padding on retrimmed alcantara wheel) is remarkably similar. the v12vs is not a typical aston...

    Another solid experience with Two Techs - can certainly recommend the guys there - super helpful, friendly and a great attention to detail. They've also coded out the seat airbags. Quick review on the Vibra Technics engine mounts (based solely on the return trip from two-techs on the M25, some...

    Fitted a dark ice designs gas strut for the bonnet - got bored of faffing with the stay and hitting my head. Nice bit of kit, but fiddly to mount one end despite being relatively straight forward instructions! took me a while to work out how to remove the flanged nut (need a spanner on the...

    Pole Position Seat Mount / Sliders / Harnesses

    I've ordered the recaro subframe adaptor from GSM / sportseats4u, along with a sliding rail, some of the endurance seat belt brackets and some schroth b23as just in case. I'll report back what works in case anyone else has to work this out in future.. also ordered some M8 30mm bzp 10.9 and...

    Pole Position Seat Mount / Sliders / Harnesses

    I guess i’ll continue to share my research… ktec do a subframe that seems to act as an adaptor -to which you could use recaro side mounts or sliders: https://www.k-tecracing.com/show_product.asp?id=5740&appid=3 Gsm / sportseats4u does a recaro mount, its not really clear what exactly this is…...

    Are the MRF used from the cup racers? Are they intended for 8j wheels?

    Pole Position Seat Mount / Sliders / Harnesses

    the schroth b23a bracket adaptor thingers seem the most popular choice but not sure that would work to maintain both oem belts and the harnesses, so i’m thinking oem stays on oem mounts both sides, and harness goes in those brackets i linked above (thus used both sides of seat base)

    Pole Position Seat Mount / Sliders / Harnesses

    Thanks suj! Makes sense now. these would probably solve the issue without the recaro side mounts (as a Direct seat to floor mount alternative) but i prefer the look of the recaros for now - even if they look nice quality...
