Can’t go wrong with AD08R’s
Contemplating some slightly lower springs to just stiffen it up a touch for track days without going silly...
@Big Ben Ben was happy with his set up...
@Big Ben care to save me some time reading 120+ pages
To hijack Ben had the grams lowering springs on cup suspension, I’ve also seen people using cooksport springs which they recommend too.
Grams springs. Lowered 30mm all round. Came off the car yesterday and will be for sale very shortly
197 or early 200
How much and how old are they Ben? And where are you based?
Well yokos have been fitted, managed to mark three of the four alloys with something, luckily the powder coat is thick so a bit of a polish and whatever it was disappeared or dissolved... shoulda gone to my old place, mail ordered the tyres and fitted em myself, seems hi-q don’t know what the red and yellow dots mean either
Old adage springs to mind, want a job done right... do it yourself! cost me 43 quid for fitting over buying with delivery... and 1.5hr cleaning wheels that I shouldn’t have needed to do!
Had time for a test run yet
Not as yet, the quick nip up the A38 with 50mph average speed cameras doesn’t allow for enthusiastic driving will give em some death tomorrow on the way to work and have a fettle on the two poster of the joints I have a very slight knock, I know there’s play in both of the rack ends so I’m gonna do both of them and see what’s noisy then
you will be happy with them..the weather is spot on so they will get warm quickly..that's when they shine...
Well Ive thrashed them inadvertently when I came across my mate in his RS4, rapid beast, left me for dead... until we came to an island and I soon caught up and nipped round the outside of him and then I took them round a National speedlimit island at the national speed limit, easy to provoke oversteer on the limit in a very balanced manner, I went round the island at 60 and felt safe
Also not noisy at all! Then I nipped home from a new birds house and had a play down the back lanes (not a euphemism!) for fun, the car just inspires fun and pushing speed, tyres are the icing on the cake
Naughty boy - on both accounts!
Ordered DS2500 pads for the fronts, (and will get HC discs once these are cooked/thinned/cracked) will use Ferodo premiers for the rear I think and see what the balance is like, got some pink pins for the front calipers and will nip to Halfords for some tool box red touch up which is meant to be a good match for Brembo red Also ordered two track rods as there’s some play in both sides (more left than right as per usual), very common failure on Meganes at my old French car place and we saw loads of 225’s in for various things
What tyre pressures did you run in the AD08R’s? Tyre place set em to 36 all round, I’ve dropped em all to 32 but think the front needs a touch more...
Think I’ll run 35f 32r and see, but a base setting that’s good is always welcome
On a brighter note, Ferodo FCP1667H DS2500 have arrived! Only ordered them yesterday afternoon too, came at 10am
Got 2 rack ends coming aswell
As they get hotter obviously need rechecking.
35 all round is ridiculous!
Yeah, I’ve not even undone the wheel nuts and torqued em up right but after checking the pressures it’s on the list of stuff to do for certain!
Having had a chance now I’ve put more acceptable tyre pressures (32f+r) in I’m definately loving the yokes, even in corners where you suddenly come across a tighter effort than you expect you just plant the throttle and turn in more and around you go! Defo do the cup chassis justice! Tbh I don’t know if I’d want any stiffer for the road as it can get a bit skippy over rough corners, for a track defo a bit stiffer would benefit, but as a 90% fast road/10% track car the Clio just sticks and does exactly what i want from a fast road car!
If you know the tyres are going to get hot take another 2psi out all round and see what you think.
Yokos will still keep gripping and will be little bit more compliant on rough roads.
I run at 30psi hot
