jbgti Posted 2, May 2009 Report Share Posted 2, May 2009 Hi All I have had a FRB 182 cup for around 16 months now. I been checkin out the forum from time to time, thought it was time to intro myself. The little beastie is a cracking car. Does take I while get used to having to man handle it to get the best out of it though. Car has run like a dream since I got it. Does run better after a long hwy run. Car is completely stock apart from the kick ass stereo I installed. Was driving through richmond yesterday and popped in the check out the 197, couldn't test drive it had to get to the hair dressers. Went back today and took a toro red for a spin around the yarra. Dispite all the footy traffic did get to give it a bit. Much better driving position, steering wheel size, no torque steer, better throttle response, feels more planted and felt heaps easier to drive fast ( at least for me, not being the best driver in the world). I had a smile on my face the whole time I was driving it. Not sure why all this fuss has been made of it having no torque or being slower than previous models. To me it felt quicker that my cup. Maybe Renault have fiddled with the ecu to cure the torque issues? Anyways after my test drive the dealer showed me a white R27. Its hot. The recaros are the shizzle. No demo's though. Its the last one they have. So having gone in to just try out the newbie, I walked out having put a deposit on one white R27! Anyone here got one? If so any owner reviews before I sign?
