    Thanks Moosey! Disappointed not to see more around. Keen to start modding the car - thinking of lightened flywheel, LSD and lithium battery

    Clio 197 convert

    A quick hello! Just picked up a Clio 197 supposedly for my son, but I suspect I'll be having more fun in it. I've had a range of cars including a couple of Alfas. In recent years though, an NB MX5 which I turbocharged and a few Hondas which I still have. The DC2 Type R is a stripped out, track only car and the FN2 Type R is road registered weekend toy with a K-frank in it. Very torquey, very easy to drive but oriented toward smooth roads and track days. And that brings us to the Clio. Picked it up in Singleton, and had a run through the back roads on the way back to Sydney. It's ultimately not as quick as the Civic, but I had so much fun it! A couple of things need attending to (engine mount, shocks wearing out, and steering rack bush) but MAN it was fun and so easy to drive. The car is at Renotech now getting the engine mount and drive shaft seal attended to. I'll slowly get to the suspension and steering rack...can't wait to get it back! I have to say though...much fewer 197s around than I expected.
