    What a car!

    Not this guy again, sheesh! If I was to have my time again, the only mod I would do is the speed hole. YEAH!

    JDM to RS265

    100%...wait...what??? #PuRitY
  3. I wonder if it's in iPhone thing then? On a MacBook I can quote (see this example) and edit. There are three dots on the posted date line, click on that for edit and other options. Can you see the three dots? Prior to ace's departure, I believe he edited all of his Member's Ride posts with a dot.
  4. You may be right, (I may be crazy), but I also think the ‘dot’ is not perfectly round. (But it just may be a lunatic you’re looking for.)
  5. 3 years??? Clearly you’ve missed the photos of pizza!
  6. If the main purpose is the track then Trophy R is really the best option. Nearly all T-Rs sold in Oz have A/C and R-Link which apparently adds a whopping 7kg to the Ring spec record holder. The one on Carsales is an ex-press car that has been treated as such and required significant repairs following a media expedition. Plus the current owner has modified it including painting the roof rails and has used it in a number of competitive events.
  7. Welcome! My partner is a JAFA and in the last 5 years I’ve been to NZ I’ve seen two Megs and one Clio of the RS variety. It’s tricky enough in OZ to properly modify an RS (although we’re spoilt in NSW) so it’ll be interesting to follow your journey across the ditch. All the best!
  8. Yeah, you could place the triangle elsewhere and put a white outline around it to avoid it being on the decal.
  9. Welcome Rene! I hope we can meet up when I go to Croatia next year.

    New RS 275 Owner

    Welcome! Now time to take it to the RenoTech Track Day.
  11. I was hoping you wouldn't notice. So your shudder might be from the previous owner not using a clutch properly or not bedding in a clutch in adequately. It shouldn't shudder. So back to the hijack...going by some test runs, 2nd will be the go. 1st is too much wheel spin and 3rd has too much lag to overcome. Watching a few YouTube videos, most WRXs & EVOs change to 2nd prior to the green light whereas the bigger capacity and bigger HP cars go from 1st. Now I need to think about tyre pressures and suspension settings.
  12. Not necessary. If a dephaser is needed then that’s determined by age, mileage and condition.
  13. I think they do have courtesy cars. They have customers come from Newcastle. They used to have a mobile service, you’ll need to check with them if that’s still available.
  14. Welcome! Best option is RenoTech in Hornsby. Conveniently next to the train station. I hear they’re pretty good.
  15. One attempts to be doing 50km/h but some seem to be doing 10km/h faster/slower. You’re meant to be level when you cross the line. I guess I need to work out what RPM I’m at for either gear at 50km/h. I’ve got about 100Nm more now at 3,000RPM so 2nd may work. I’ll probably end up trying both on the night.
  16. It’s not something I experience. Are you depressing the pedal too slowly? On another note, I’m about to do a Roll Racing event and need to work out to start from 50km/h in 2nd or 1st? The extra gear change takes time and time off throttle but 50km/h in 2nd may not be ideal for torque. However, being in 2nd could help avoid excessive wheel spin. Discuss...
  17. Welcome! I haven’t noticed[mention=16305]Apex[/mention] be active here for quite a while now but if you can get a hold of him, he’d be the person to get advice from.
  18. Yep, Ohlins (+ RSC Upgrade Kit) will soon be available. RobbieR, they're so good that it would be silly to replace them. Oh, wait... Yes, the Akra has been sold. Also for sale soon will be an F4RT. Might as well do an LS1 conversion and rear wheel drive. Right?
  19. There’ll be an LSD out of a Trophy R available soon!
  20. Nice one! I didn’t realise you were on here. We met at the last DS Track Day and had a chat about you looking at a Megane in Melbourne. You’ll have to jump in at the next track day and give me a few pointers!
  21. Will it be a trailer queen or remain road registered? Here's Pete's ride thread which is an inexpensive way of making a handy 250 for the track: http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/topic/28824-track-only-megane-rs250/

    Another megane

    Yup! Wet track days are still a lot of fun and in some ways better for learning car control. Plenty of run-off area. Just don’t be silly when coming onto the straight after exiting (arguably) the slowest corner on an Australian track.
