  1. Rowan, pics of your car please..........................
  2. Hi Rowan, I am the president of the French & Fantastic car club of WA - roughly 50% of our membership are Renault owners half of which are RS variants, the other 50% of our membership consists of all the other French brands - Mainly Citroens and Pugs with a smattering of things like an Amical or Simca. best to email me for details regarding track days johndb@amnet.net.au

    RS265 or RS250?

    my concern about the 250 is that the advert says it's had 4 owners already but only done 59,000 km ? - a different owner every 15,000 km seem a bit strange.......

    Nothing wrong with those rims ! - welcome to the forum
  5. I have 7 kg fronts and 2 sets of rears 4 kg currently in the car and I have a 5 kg set of rears which I will fit once I get a lap around Barbagallo, hopefully 26 May if my car is running, currently waiting on a an AC pulley from overseas as none in Australia. I am hoping to be able to test each of the rear sets of springs and see which is best for lap times and also on the road. There are two events in July, so if I am lucky enough to get similar weather conditions and no other problems on the track, by end of July I should have some figures.
  6. I went with the BC Racing coilovers as I am on a fairly tight budget, if I was a wealthy bloke I would probably go with the Nitron R-1's but they are about $4,500 here in Australia. I have a thread on this forum regarding the BC's, probably around AUS$1,400 delivered , not sure what you would be paying for the AST top mounts, could be half the cost of the BC's ? Lowered springs will help with track performance, but you will lose comfort - they are cheap way of setting a faster lap time though.
  7. I did rear bar first - 5 years ago, no loss in comfort I then did H&R lowered springs 3 months after that - it handled better but lost of comfort on anything less than good roads Then - 3 years later I did the front bar - big job dropping the sub frame Then - 6 months after that did the Coilovers, adjustable damping allows for some variation in ride quality If you are going to start making suspension changes - my advice would be get a ride / drive in a car that already has the mods you are looking at first, friendly bunch on this forum, must be someone in your area who has the mods done. If in Perth, welcome to drive my car.
  8. firmer, fine on the freeway - uncomfortable on back roads.
  9. Rear one is 30 minutes to fit with axle stands, front bar requires a hoist and drop the sub frame - 2-3 hours work. I have both front and rear fitted to my car and coil overs and rear camber shims, corners very well.
  10. If it's not already got one - an adjustable rear anti roll bar from Superpro, will make the front turn in better and also get you some more lift off oversteer if you run it on the tighter setting. Can be fitted by any home mechanic in < 30 minutes. https://superpro.com.au/find/superpro-suspension-parts-and-poly-bushings-for-renault-megane-series-iii-2008-on-/cid-999500258
  11. Get yourself a Superpro rear anti-roll bar for the car first - best $ value mod you can do to the car, improves turn-in tremendously. Loads of threads on here about exhausts, have a search.
  12. I have a Megane RS250 - Speed Event series starts Sunday Feb 25 at Barbagallo raceway 3 pm onwards
