    Hazard lights going overtime randomly!

    As I wrote my reply I thought: Actually it probably was the scuttle tray which I hadn't checked... I'd just noticed the seal between the door and the rear window had split all the way down. It's also just happened on my current 197, those seals don't last long.

    Hazard lights going overtime randomly!

    I had the same problem in my old 197. Seals on my windows had gone, so I think water may have been coming in from there. But same result, water under passenger seat caused hazards to turn on by themselves.

    How fast or slow are these things?

    Does look a bit slow in the straights to be fair. Would help to see on-board footage. Did you get any lap times?

    rupe30's Clio 197

    haha I'm pretty sure nothing fell off... By all accounts they're exactly the same. I find them a little soft for the track, but if you're using it on the road it's probably a good balance. I went out in @R27WTF's car which is on AST's and solid as a rock, made mine feel like a boat :(

    Great day at Donington park with the crew. Gotta say i enjoyed Opentracks hosting, in particular their leniency with the track limits flag, much appreciated! Started with a curry the night before with the chaps and a waiter who called everyone BIG BOY! Great start to the trip. Quick brake pad...

    rupe30's Clio 197

    Bit of footage from Donington Park on Monday Eve. There were a few 197's there, nice liquid yellow one, racing blue and a couple of caged ones which looks pretty serious. Great track, perfect for the clio, by far my favourite track.

    If anyone on here....

    Ha! Noise cancelling headphones, cuts out the drone of the exhaust. Only use on long motorway journeys.. Next question?

    Sprint Booster V3 - First impressions

    I think mine's great for the road, i see it essentially as a sport button, the increase in throttle response makes the car feel alert and faster. For the road it's an absolute no-brainer. On track however i'm 50/50. At Snetterton the other week I found it's very difficult to feather the...

    Micah's Glacier White 220 Trophy

    Had a few twitches at Blanchimont 2 because I had to lift. Glad i brought spare pants. Christ, I was 115 through blanchimont but entry to pouhon was max 60, just no grip through there for me

    Micah's Glacier White 220 Trophy

    Blanchimont flat in 5th and hold onto your nuts! (Don't suppose you were recording when i was infront were you?) I'm so excited for a dry track day.. I reckon you're gonna see a good improvement with your springs. Tyres will probably hold you back though, 20 minute stints then cool down...

    Weight of Clio/Mass In Service

    Mine was 1245kg with half a tank of fuel. I just took my rear seats and parcel shelf out which saved 20kg, which makes my car 1300kg with me in it and half a tank. I also have OZ Wheels which are 8.5kg each so bit of a weight saving there. I don’t think even stripping them saves that much...

    Big Bens Albi T

    I felt the exact same in the morning, completely deflated and frustrated. We were on the wrong tyres, simple as that. When the dry line appeared for about 10 minutes in the afternoon it changed everything. The car's just got to be setup right. I have no doubt you'd have loved it if it was dry!

    Spa Francorchamps 4/4/18 Awesome trip to Spa this week. A real pleasure to drive in convoy with so many Renaultsports. Early crossing over to France, spirits were high looking forward to a nice sunny trackday at Spa.. Went straight to the track on Tuesday to watch the track day in...
