  1. Hey paulo. Thanks for the heads up. Will look into this for you.
  2. Selling Fiesta ST for a second hand Clio RS200 EDC??

    Yep fast road the Sport is more compliant over mid corner bumps and therefore handles better, and the Cup is only marginally better than Sport on track. THere's very little difference. Clio 4 Cup is softer than a Clio 3 Cup chassis. IMHO coilovers are overkill for the road. A decent set of aftermarket shocks and springs will do a better job. Saying that Renaultsport did/does a pretty epic job on the Clio 3/4 suspension. Hard to beat with any upgrade for road use.
  3. Selling Fiesta ST for a second hand Clio RS200 EDC??

    Welcome! I've driven all three chassis fairly extensively - Sport and Cup there isn't much difference in handling. They're both excellent. The Sport ride is noticeably more compliant. The 220 Trophy is on another level from a handling perspective with the penalty being a much firmer ride. I've also driven the ST and it reminded me of an old school hot hatch. Small, light, crashy, loose in the tail, etc. The Clio 4 handles superbly but is a lot more refined/composed when pushing hard. Of course some of us like a bit of rawness. Others don't. Personal preference.. And if you're sensing a lack of steering feel on the Clio, then don't bother with the Polo. The 2016 model that I had a drive of went hard in a straight line but complete disconnection between steering and driving wheels was my experience. Finally, unlike earlier Clio 2/3, Clio 4 has a timing chain which doesn't require the 4 yearly change of belt that pushes up ownership costs of the earlier cars.
  4. Hello from Switzerland

    Welcome! It's great to see a 'new' euro tuner take an interest in the Australian RS scene. Sorry my german is rubbish but we can try in french if you like??? We do have to respect our existing site supporters (commercial section), so feel free to PM me as an admin if you are interested in discussing this. Otherwise welcome once again!
  5. Hmm thought we'd sorted the store. Hold tight on that one.

  11. Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    Sounds like a good idea, gents. We'll add that to the list, and any help with scripts and/or pointing us towards a solution would be appreciated. Some possible good news just in. Tapatalk have sent us a very apologetic email with a promise of an updated plugin to be released in the next few days to address the IPB issue. Fingers crossed that we get a positive result when the fix is released.
  12. Who wants cards?

    Just replied to your post in the sticker thread.
  13. Yes we have grey stickers here in MEL.

  15. Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    Hi All, a couple of comments from me. From our online research, we're one of a very large number of forums globally that have been affected by the tapatalk issue. We're not alone in what we're experiencing. Saying that we will get this sorted. As a team, we're working on this every day. So thanks for your patience while we work through the issues. As for the forum dying, I don't think we're at this point just yet. We're seeing over 300 individual member logins per day, which is slightly down on when we switched to the new format. So by no means anywhere near dead. Finally, please be assured that the Admin Team are still very much RS enthusiasts. We all still (only just, Paul) own Renaultsport vehicles, some of us more than one. We absolutely give a sh$t about this place. And we drive our RS's with great pleasure at every opportunity.
