  1. if you dont have any of these, you will soon need them if you start servicing your car. sockets 8,10,13,16,18,19 (wheel nuts - i think) 21/22mm (front struts - forget which) 30mm (if you want to remove hubs) short and long socket extensions. 2 long ones joined together is good. spanners 8,10,13,17,18 torx (star) bits t50 (for steering wheel), t40 (for brake rotors), t30 (abs sensors) (strong as you can get, NOT tamperproof) then some kind of multi folding tool for the smaller torx bits for interior trim. large-ish flathead screwdriver an 8mm square sump plug removal tool. (about $10 - 15) you can pretty much service your whole car with those tools. best to also have: a long socket breaker bar, a g clamp, or a $12 caliper pusher for brake pads an air compressor and rattlegun can be had for as little as $200 . try to get at a minimum the supercheap higher torque 1/2" rattlegun for about $70 on special. some axle stands. an oil sump or syringe or a funnel with a length of hose for the gearbox oil. anyone else think of something you need. (a lot of socket & spanner sets jump from 14 to 17 to 19) (try to buy sockets that are 6 sided, not 12 point, as they wont round off nuts)

    WHY CAN'T I MAKE THEM WORK. NOW I AM SAD. (which is very difficult to express without a smilie, ironically enough) insert rolling eyes here.
  4. Ktec say they offer a discount to cliosport members. should we try to negotiate a discount for OZRS members. or i can tell the I will end every post with shop at ktec if they give me 6.66% discount
  5. so i the little RSC has finally won over my (awesome) GF. she is now the proud owner of a monaco blue 172. as soon as she sat in one that was not stripped out for racing she was won over. i'm sure she will soon beon to say hello. although i guess all her technical questions will be answered by me it needs new wheels and we are thinking of these http://www.tempetyres.com.au/products_c ... art_no=473 in 16" or these http://www.tempetyres.com.au/products_c ... rt_no=1429 in 15" she and i both like them any thoughts??
  6. guys, they stuffed a 2L motor into a car the size of a barina. Cut them some slack.
  7. I use telekenesis, or a bio port that I stole from the set of existenz

    Hi from Whyalla

    heya. hope you like it here. ozrs is a good thing. any roundabouts in whyalla?? you can now beat the silly v8 boys and get 7l/100km too. no free steak knives though. later dude
  9. bump (just kidding- this thread will never die down) what I really meant was hello. hello
  10. dude. yes!!!! clios make you grin like a madman while only sucking down 6.5 litres per hundred ks. and, you will....fall in love with your car. or buy a lotus elise. same sort of fun factor and economy. but in a clio when you slow down the cops don't notice you. just don't paint it pink (or we'll all bash you)
  11. yep, you're right. I messed up. it's bris in june, adelaide in july. I haven't heard anything about AIR not being a goer, but then I don't live in adelaide.
  12. hey aitch, I got quoted 230 bucks for the key fob thing, and my local renault dealer told me that was them giving me a good price. who gave you one for 170, and did that include getting it coded to your car?
  13. yeah. pretty accurate specs huh. they left out the roof mounted jet turbine and active aero package. and that it runs on vegetable scraps. I am definitely planning to do the ***EDIT***brissie (june) and adelaide (july) rounds.
  14. Hey everyone. Thanks for taking an interest. Hopefully you're all not going to be ashamed of me when you find out how clueless/new to this I am. Q Why 16" rims. A My car came with dented rims, and I was having trouble finding 15x7's aftermarket. I bought the rims I have because they were hell cheap (with 3 corn flake coupons) $780 with tyres (grotty falkens) Q do I have a quaife diff? A No, I don't have an LSD, but they are allowed. I saw them on the ktec site, they seem pretty spendy. I assume they are about 2.5K plus installation by the time they get here. I had a bit of a look for phantom grip things, (as that's what a few of the other cars are running) but there doesn't seem to be one for the clio. pity. I could've afforded one of those. What's the consensus on quaife diffs. Paul at auto paris tried talking me out of the idea. Q what sort of ATFW kw's am i getting? A My car has never seen a dyno (Oh the shame. There I said it) Basically here's a rundown on the mods we are allowed. Any or no exhaust after the cat. (I'm running no rear muffler) any springs/dampers (I've got yellow konis with lowered eibachs. which are too soft. I've already swapped the front eibachs for stiffer springs, cant recall the brand. I plan to put something stiffer at the back too) a bit of freedom with wheels/tyres (up to an inch bigger and wider) must be street legal (ie semis) better brakes (but no bigger) Honestly I am still running OE renault pads (shame shame) a front splitter and rear wing. wing must fit in with cars profile when viewed from above and behind (ie no higher than roof, no further back than bumper) better air filters (must mount as per standard) so no pods, or cold air ducts (I finally put in a green cotton panel filter) plugs and high tension leads can be changed Air con can be ditched. (I'm hoping to do this in a few weeks) ECU can be reproggrammed or swapped. (ditto this. What was the talk on the forum about group N ecu reflashes for $500. I would like to know who's doing them, and where?) We can fit an lock or lim-slip diff. I could save me another 11kgs by swapping the passenger seat for another carbon fibre one. (it has to be the standard seat, or identical to the drivers seat. So it would cost me $600) We can use any go faster bits provided they are available over the counter from renault (but I can't even get anyone from renault to tell me if there are any such things) I was thinking a 182 manifold might be a go-er Heres some things we CAN'T Do. No lightweight body panels no engine massaging of internals no forged pistons etc no stripping the interior. the full regs are available at www.ptcc.net.au then click on compete. I've put in a lighter (19Ahr) battery. and my rims are light (about 5.9kgs each) and I trimmed my beard to save weight. Where would be a good place in sydney to get work done on my car. I've spoken to auto paris in melb, but they are a long way away from f*ing canberra. (and paul seemed to have a certain disregard for the ptcc regulations, which I do not share. stupid christian upbringing ) Anyway, thanks and stuff. I don't actually have any mates that like cars (other than dan, who races the hyundai sonata in the PTCC) so this oz ren sport thing is a real help for me. I'm rapidly becoming less of a gumby about all things mechanical. So much so that I am considering training at tafe in mechanics) I currently own a pub/club thing. (which I started in the hope of making lots of money so I could indulge in a spot of motorsport)
