  1. I was coming to say this. any of the 172/182 cars will have 10-15 year old suspension which has possibly seen better days. as the owner of a 182 cup (only clio I drove so can't compare with others) I would say go a 172/182 non cup and spend the money you saved on some new aftermarket suspension and decent tyres. second hand, good condition, coilovers etc pop up on the forum from time but I haven't seen much to suit the 182 cup floating around. .. and just read Jim's post above, forgot about the cruise control factor. Pretty sure it can be retro-fitted to 172 with some DIY work though.

    New to Renault

    Keep your eyes on the forum for OZRS or Racespec Tuning trackdays, also often a handfull of members end up at wakefield for speed off the streets days. Sydney peeps also have regular catchups for pizza on the first Tuesday of the month if you want to meet some people and chat in person.

    New to Renault

    Welcome aboard. I was looking at Team dynamics 1.2 online last week. Depending on size and colour they started around $600 aud plus delivery for 15" black/grey wheels. I decided i had more pressing priorities for my cash at this stage (and i already have about 15 factory wheels in the shed so another 4 weren't necessary). There is a thread in the clio 2 section on track/semi tyres that cover all the ins and outs as well as prices and reviews. There is heaps of knowledge on the site and behind the keyboards. Tim Edit - i saw that clio on gumtree/carsales the other night. And you just missed a trackday at SMSP last week but I'm sure more will pop up in the coming months.

    Cams License

    I looked into this a few months ago. I was going to go with CAMS LS2 licence and join the ARDC. Pretty sure the ARDC membership was good for getting into SMSP for practice days, watching other events in there, etc. From memory cams was $130ish and ardc was about the same per year.
  5. someone must be an accountant - running a renault financial year calendar
  6. finally got around to paying today. I was well over due any way but after getting my car going on the weekend after searching through the forum it has saved a bit of money and heartache

    Cost of Renault Bits

    I get filters and such from the dealer, oil i use penrite hpr5 from where ever it is on special, bigger service and other work i will get renotech in sydney to do. Not sure what car you have, but i have a clio2 so warranty isn't an issue for me
  8. i'm taking a work ute from bucketty to cessnock via wollombi tomorrow, good chance to check out the road and maybe take the clio for a run at a later date. looks nice and twisty on google
  9. I went up to Ringwood a few weekends ago to represent Renault at the 'come and try' hillclimb day with MGCC - I failed miserably Didn't see any other Renaults there that day. And I checked out www.andrewpearsonphotography.com.au - nice work
  10. does it have a 5 post bull bar to fit in in Tamworth (I do know Tamworth isn't all b&s utes)
  11. I'm in Newcastle. I haven't seen any drives organised. The best bet might be to jump for the northern part of the Sydney runs that happen.

    New Rs Candidate

    i think the welding option might depend on where the crack is. a few years ago i bought a set of rims and one of them was repaired when i got them. weld lasted 18 months before it opened up and i had to pay $100 to re-weld it. lasted a few more years then i sold the car

    Old But New

    Well covered answers. Could the knocking noise be a loose exhaust shield rattling as the motor stops?
