  1. Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    Thanks all, for your efforts in getting the forum back to 'normal' (what defines 'normal'?). I have a very elementary understanding of what's required with this task but if it's anything like what has to happen just to keep 2 or 3 devices up to date (I would imagine 1000 times worse) it would be a real PITA. Whilst Tapatalk has not been my interface with the forum I can see, for some, it would be easier to use their phones 'on the go.' The forum has allowed me to share, and meet others, with interest in things Renault RS, at whatever level. I'm sure if we have patience it will return to full usability. I have noticed over the last couple of days that some of the functions (new content, PM's) seem to have come back to 'normal'. Hope you have success with the re-integration of Tapatalk without too much further trouble.

    Welcome! There are knowledgeable people here to help with enquiries you may have. A number of which are covered in the Meg III Technical section. Exhaust options are from Akrapovic ($3000 +, may be some gains hp wise) to a 'mid-box' chop ($80-$150 mainly to improve sound). Those with experience will be able to comment further, although it is covered extensively in the technical section. Main thing is to get out and enjoy the drive and do a track day so you can explore the limits in a relatively safe environment. Enjoy

    I find the darker option 'easier on the eyes'.
  4. Yeah, BT is not the quickest communication protocol and would probably create latency. Could be related to the speed of the display device as well. Hope you get it sorted. My application is not 'race critical'. Read that as just 'another toy to play with'. Would only tell me at what speed the engine blew up. ????
  5. You may be able to use Torque Pro on an android phone/tablet to get what you want. I have a MY12 265 and have a set up using that app with a BT dongle plugged in to the OBDII port to get the info/data off the ECU. Torque Pro can be configured to mostly give what you want with readings in analogue or digital form. One of the things I have configured is to give a number on the display showing the current gear selected. Also I have it showing turbo boost, RPM, digital speed, digital Intake Air and coolant temp. All in the colour of your choice.☺ Not sure of the accuracy for your purpose but should be ok given that it is the same data used for the motor ECU inputs. There is a bit of a 'learning curve' first up.
  6. How did you find us?

    It's an unknown fact, related to a shortcoming of Einstein's Theory of Relativity. The older you get, the faster time passes. At least, that's what's happening to me. ????????

    Welcome. I detect there may be a close relationship between you and trixie. In which case, we will need full disclosure, so we know who we're dealing with, and make allowances. ☺

    Welcome! As dongerz1 says you will love it. Have had my MY12 265 for, coming up, 4 years and still enjoy driving it, often with a smile. It always improves my day when I'm out and about in it. Great therapy, better than a 'shrink', although I haven't had the need (must work ). Track days are a bonus and give you a chance to explore its, more than capable, limits. Look forward to photos and hearing of your experiences.

    I would mostly agree with the above. BUT... if you treat every set of traffic lights like you're on the drag strip at EC and doing track days and/or racing every weekend you may find it worthwhile adopting strategies others have suggested. ☺ If doing longer, normal running, where the car is getting fully warmed up, you can extend the oil change interval a bit. The longer running helps reduce (burn off) the polutants that build up and decrease the oil's lubrication. Shorter runs create a heat/cool down cycle causing condensation within the motor which contibutes to the creation of pollutants. Well that's what I've always believed. Happy to bow to greater knowledge. ????

    +1^ ☺ I taught myself 50 years ago and still get it 'not quite right' on occassions. It's just a matter of practicing the 'in clutch/off accelerator co-ordination for a while. Used to do that, parked in the driveway. When I had a 'bit of a handle' on that I started to use it while driving. Aim to do it as smoothly as you can and if concerned about causing mechanical issues ease the clutch out rather than letting it out with a 'thump'. After a while it becomes 'second nature' and adds to the satisfaction you get from driving. You will know you are 'getting it right' when the motor doesn't sound like its going to shoot the valves out thru the bonnet when letting the clutch out at the end of the cycle. ☺

  13. NEW OzRS FORUM

    Thanks clixxx, not sure I fully understand, but will continue to look for a fix. Just seems that the method to 'upload' images has changed.
  14. NEW OzRS FORUM

    Any ideas?
  15. NEW OzRS FORUM

    What has changed that you don't seem to be able to upload pictures to Gallery any more (at least I can't)? I used to upload them and then select and post a link to them if I wanted to use them in a post. I don't use flickr, or the like, and don't particularly want to. Perhaps I am doing something wrong, as I haven't been able to upload pictures for a while. Any advice/help will be appreciated.
