    Worn/Melted CV Boot - Track Only Car

    Hi. Have a strange issue with drivers side CV Boot. Boot was a brand new Renault part, put on just before Bedford track day. It was installed correctly, with the correct crimping tool.

    Gripper Gearbox Issues

    Need some advice. Purchased a gearbox with a gripper diff installed from this forum some weeks ago. Got it fitted today, went out for a drive, and it has crunching into 3rd gear.

    Has anyone replaced the original exhaust heatshields with anything like the placement cloth or adhesive matting/sheeting? My rear heat shield rattle like mad and would much prefer to ditch them and replace with heat shield sheeting.

    Swapping Engine and ECU - Possible?

    Hi - Have done a quick search and can't find anything relevant. My engines on 113k and probably needs a belt and dephaser change. I've also put on a toyosport manifold, with K-Tec decat pipe and full exhaust. Because I have no cats it now needs a remap. I'm thinking perhaps an easier route to...

    DIY ABS Delete

    Hi. Strongly thinking of deleting out the ABS (2006 197). Have run track cars in the past without ABS, and much prefer the feel they have. It will obviously reduce a little weight and complexity in the engine bay. Having looked at the system, there are obviously 2 feeds from the master cylinder...

    A Lesson - eBay is not always cheaper

    Everyone assumes eBay is the cheapest place to source parts, and that stealers (I know that phrase doesn't help) will always be the most expensive. On the whole that may be a true statement, but it's always best to check your local Renault dealer first, especially for smaller parts. I last week...

    Gearbox Removal and/or Clutch Change Guide

    Hi. I have the front suspension, subframe and radiator currently removed from the car. In the short 10 mile drive I had in the car I noticed the normal crunch into 3rd. It is likely the gearbox oil hasn't been changed in a long time, so this is going to be done, and I'm also replacing the mounts...

    Have just purchased a second hand KTEC exhaust. ON my car it looks like the centre exhaust mount has been redesigned at some point to accommodate the powerflow exhaust. Does the KTEC exhaust use the standard clio mount and hanger? Does anyone have a pic? Thanks

    197 Red 2006 Track Only Project

    Quick intro. Not only a Clio virgin, but a French car virgin. Currently building a Tiger Avon (Caterham type kit car) as a pure track car, so the Clio is going to be a fast build and bad weather track car. So a 56 reg 113k mile 197 purchased for the grand sum of £1600 a few weeks ago. On the...
