    First Renault just purchased

    OK - maybe Bridgestone RE003 or Michelin PS4 - Exaltos are superseded now and therefore no longer available. RS3 or AD08R, whilst great road tyres, are probably a bit of an overkill for just the occasional track day (harsher ride, road noise etc).

    What do you primarily want the tyre for - road or track??

    Can I suggest either Yokohama AD08R or Hankook RS3/4?? Great road and track tyres.

    182 Clio Cup - Needs mods!

    Phillip Island is VERY fast in anything, but especially a 182. Make sure you have plenty of brake pad material left, fresh brake fluid and sort out your tyre pressures.

    182 Clio Cup - Needs mods!

    The standard car is fantastic - the best things you can do are good tyres (Yokohama AD08R, Hankook RS3/4) and better brake fluid and pads (front and rear). Then when you have done that and you want to get the best out of the car - do an advanced driving course and learn how to drive it!!!

    Black 182 In Perth

    That is the hot pressure range from the Yokohama factory. We tested extensively on 2 different circuits and found that the car was nicest to drive with 36lb hot all round. As Vaughan suggests, I think a Clio works better with higher pressure because they are comparatively light cars. At that pressure the car was neutral and I achieved competitive laptimes to other Clios etc
