Rally Clio 197

Damn bro could have been much worse! At least you enjoyed. Just prep for next season now! All part of learning. Mega quick in to those corners by the way, tremendous effort.

Looks like it could have been much worse from the first pics but that twisted alloy is a real eye-opener! It must have been some impact.

How much did it cost You, i have nothing but problems with mine. Was using tape but it doesn't look very tidy and affects paint job as well so looking for some better solution.
It is still a prototype. There are two btw... one for the front part, one for the small back opening. If the final version is done, I could sell you those. Should be around 35-40€ + Shipping.

Yeah I know... Would have been much worse if I hitted one of the first two trees.

The damage is much worse than i thought. The front axle is also broken.

I am trying to get some sponsoring for this season, so I can continue with my championship. But it doesn't look very good at this moment.

Forgot the update...

I repaired the car and participated at the last race for my championship. I had some steering problems and a cracked exhaust header. But I finished the race with place 9 of 26 in my class. I got enough points to finish my championship on the 2nd place out of 30 teams :smile:

I try to get some new sponsors for next year and get some upgrades for the car.

One of the Clios is still racing. Amazing and powerful car with lots of R3 parts. He is winning mostly every rally in his class where he starts :flushed:

Looks like the old videos don't work anymore. My favourite one:



Another one of my very first test back in 2015. You can see the open-diff problems at the corners.

I just stumbled across this old thread about my previous rally clio. Guess what, there is a new one since this year! :grinning:

It's a well built Clio 3 RS with lots of parts from the R3 Maxi and more.

The car has 230 hp at 7800 rpm. We also tried 8400 rpm and had about 245 hp, but the car should stay reliable.

Weight is about 1090 kg (without spare tyre and fuel). I am still trying to find another 40 kg as 1050 kg is the minimum weight in my class. Does anyone know the weight of the OEM doors?

Startup:

And there is another one from last weekend (3rd place in our class). Unfortunately we had some issues with our dogbox on this day. Therefore I had to use the clutch for upshifting too.

Cheers,
Marius

Awesome! How have you got that much hp?!! That pedal box looks cool as well.

Doors are 30kg+ with glass / mechanism.
The engine was built new from scratch with high compression pistons, machined head, rally cat cams, full R3 Maxi Evo header + exhaust, R3 Maxi Evo Carbon intake, MBE 9A9 ECU with full remapping.
