  1. With a bit of luck, the fan might just need a bit of warmth and dry air. Otherwise, for the money if the history is there it could be a good buy. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  2. Having just gone from the Hankooks to the RE003s, they're similar in the dry but night and day in the wet. The RE003's are like driving on ice in the wet, at any speed. They're hard as nails though so likely I'll have to put up with them for many years now. The Hankooks are pretty good but wear very quickly. Only 10k with 2 track days out of the set on my 265 and 20k out of my wifes daily driver GT220.

    That trophy is one of 2 in Queensland that are written of vehicles, hence the price. Scan down through the ad and you'll see it listed. I'm guessing the floods that went through there last year. If you're not planning to comprehensively insure it, and want to take the risk, go for it. Otherwise, go for the liquid yellow. I'd aim for a phase 2 though at that budget.

  7. Hi,

    Would you take $500 for the set?



  8. Did some trawling and found the last time we spoke about this one. I just went over and had a peek through the window and can confirm there isn't a second set of pedals in there at the moment. And it's possibly not as dire as I thought regarding the lack of movement. Might only have been since June last year that it hasn't been driven.
  9. I'm in 2 minds on that front. I think the ability of the instructor would determine how bad the abuse was. Also, if it was a 2 pedal setup with a clutch and brake, and again if the instructor was worth their salt, they could have prevented the majority of harshness being passed onto the driveline.

  10. I'm saying 7k only because of its age. The fact it hasn't turned a wheel in I'm thinking 12 months couldn't be great for its gearbox. Factor in condensation occurring inside the box, along with the angle that's its been sitting at for that entire time and I think it would be fair to assume that the top half of the gearbox may have rust due to no lubrication. The belts being done 30k ago I'm guestimating at being due again due to time. Although it's safe to say they haven't been through any heat cycles in the past couple of years lol Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  11. I'll have a peek through the window but I believe they've been removed. I think you have to hold an instructors licence before they're allowed to be installed and they probably have to be removed once the vehicle is sold. The modification would remain on rms records.

  12. It has finally been readvertised. And it literally hasn't moved since we last spoke about it.
  13. That car looks pretty good for that price. Only issue would be that scrape if you're planning on repairing it down the track. I looked at a couple of 197s before settling on ours and both had a dent in the rear quarter panel. One seller had received a quote of $500 for the repair....... My smash repairer advised that it would be an expensive repair as it was likely to be a high strength steel panel (entire rear quarter) that had to be replaced, as it couldn't be repaired/filled like traditional steel panels. Their suggestion was to have the seller claim the repair on their insurance and pay for their excess in order to have it repaired properly. However there is a chance the car could be written off due to the cost of the repair. My tip would be go and visit this one that is 2 doors down from me. It has been relisted and the price is finally coming down. But I'd suggest making a surprise visit right now as it looks nothing like the pictures that are presented. is full of cobwebs and dirt and will allow you to drop a buy it now offer of $8000 that he'd be hard pressed to refuse. As long as he is able to provide receipts for the timing belt work he claims has been done because the car has literally not moved since it was last advertised which was brought up in another thread on here I'm thinking a year ago. F#@k it, after writing that and thinking more, offer $7000! https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/neutral-bay/cars-vans-utes/renault-clio-rs-200-cup-2012-/1238299055

  15. Do you mean marks like polish overrun onto plastic? Does it come of with alcohol? Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
