  1. The best things you can do are good extreme performancce tyres (Yokohama AD08R, Bridgestone RE71R), upgrade the brakes (pads and rotors) and do a high performance driving course. More power is only good if you can use it - and that should be on a race track of course !!

    Welcome - enjoy the car and the forum.
  3. Don't know why it was changed in the first place - nothing wrong with the previuos version. Now, with the wild colours I need my shades when I visit the site!!!😎

    Just a thought - the limited edition (not for Oz) 182 trophy had a modified suspension with Sachs shockers and was lowered about 15mm over standard. It would be interesting to find out what RenaultSport did about adjusting roll centres - if anything. I know the Trophy had uprated hubs. You could try contacting Renault, although I doubt they would know anything about the Trophy, or you could try contacting the guys at Renotech in Sydney - who know lots about everything!! There is a roll centre correction kit available on the web from UK, I think. Involves changing hubs to Scenic ones and other additions in the kit.
  5. Interesting you are building an XJS race car - is it a replica of the Walkinsaw cars??

    Go with what you know then would be my suggestion. We found the Konis great - no probs and reliable.

    We always used Koni yellows with the XU1s - Bilsteins are very good too. I would think either brand with good Eibach springs.

    The Whiteline one that I (and several other 172/182 owners on this forum use) comes only in 18mm. It is a blade type and has 2 settings - hard and soft if you will. I have my rear anti roll bar set on soft, with front camber pins and 2 degrees negative camber.

    For brakes - I suggest you contact Competition Friction in Canberra - they are Ferodo importers and DBA agents (also AP racing). You are probably aware that you need to match pads to rotors. I would also suggest a rear anti roll bar, if you have not thought of that. Makes a considerable difference to the handling and getting the rear tyres to work (in my experience in sprints with my 182). And welcome!!

    Clio Sport and RS

    Which model are you talking about?? In my experience, gratty gear changes are caused by the person holding the gearstick!!!
