Recommended Posts

hi all

just purchased my r26 for my new track car

its the perth one with the stripped out interior , race seats , 6 points , powerchip , stainless exhaust spare wheels with toyo 888

cant wait to get it back to melbourne

are there any renault track days

any one know how to set the suspension up correctly .

i think a carbon bonnet could save some more weight

i think he has saved like 100 kg so it will be light weight

Congrats.

 

In the order you asked.

1.) We are working on one with Tarmac Magazine and we have the National met once a year (just gone)

2.) Trutrac in Melb appear to have done some good things with Meganes - Run a search on them

3.) Carbon Bonnet would save weight, Dave has one on his R26, maybe give him a PM

4.) 100kg thats alot mate, would be a serious weapon!

Welcome! Congrats on the purchase 8)

 

As Chris said, I'd be taking it to Trutrak Suspension in Melbourne. Robbieraver on this forum works there.

 

Also, if the R26 is your "track" car, what is your daily? :wink:

His username is DA\/E or im sure he will make himself known in a day or two!

Try sending him a PM or look for him in the megane section, he posts a fair bit in there.

Welcome matey 8)

 

I did notice that car up on car sales - the seats look immense!

 

Can I asked how you got it rego'd + insured with those mods (particularly the lack of seat airbags)

 

hi

the car arrives from perth in about 10 days

it still has WA reg so hopefully i can just transfer it over

worst case i put the original seats in for a day

its mostly a track day car so it wont get much road use

Hey Harry. Welcome to the Forum.

 

I noticed your car for sale a while ago, and posted up a link in the Meggy section (which I see you have found). It was interesting that the owner joined up to the forum quite soon afterwards, but only made one post, which was a shame as we were all keen to learn a bit more about the car.

 

No matter, you're here now, and can tell us all about it.... :D

 

Certainly looks like on of the most Hard Core R26s around. 8)

 

Regarding the Carbon Bonnet, I did a thread on it a while back, you may have found it by now.

 

Long story short, there are a few places places you can get the aftermarket ones. The Genuine R26R ones cost an arm and two legs, and thats even if you can get them. Mine saves 5 kg in weight, and looks very nice while doing it too. In fact that was probably the main reason I got it, well, that and that no-one else has one. :P

 

Cheers - Dave.

Yes, I eventually got the bonnet from k-tec. I got it shipped by air, which was fairly expensive, and I cant remember exactly how much (probably blocked it from my memory..... :lol: ) You could get it shipped by sea if you want to wait / save a bit. Just drop them an e-mail, and they will do a quote for you.

 

No track work for me at the moment, too many things on my plate, as well as living a long way from the nearest track doesen't help. Just enjoy driving the car.

 

Cheers - Dave.

Hey mate welcome to the forum, be really interesting to get your car on the dyno and the scales to find out what the power to weight ratio is :)

 

That way when you slaughter my time and Winton I would feel so bad :8

 

Enjoy the car mate, I love mine the Toyo's and the seats wold be worth 3 to 4 seconds in themselves and with brakes and a chip (want to know more might be worth getting RS tuner just to data log) should be a weapon

 

All the best to bad you weren't at the nationals I am wearing the shirt right now!

Hi Harry,

Very nice track you have gone with. Glad to see someone will be pushing it to its limits.

If and when you are interested, i can import the Genuine R26-R carbon fibre bonnet if available.

Just send me a PM or email me even better.

My post is in the For Sale section in case you haven't travelled there yet. In the commercial section.

I'm still actually trying to confirm the fitment of R26-R rotors on to R26s.

Love to see pics, and hope all goes well for you.

Cheers.

WOLF.
