RS 250Cup Trophee, bought it to annoy a mate with a Focus RS .

The intention is to Marque sports race it starting January so the mods are starting :D

 

Any thoughts are appreciated, so far K&N 18" rims with Advan 050 rubber Porterfield carbon kevlar pads and heading to Varex for the muffler.

Tossing up between BlueFin or a custom Powerchip anything else I need to do? Strut braces?

Thanks Hugo

No pics yet only picked it up on Friday. Didnt drive it before just went off the reviews and specs so walked in and crunched them on price . Should be fun! We live in the Yarra Valley Melbourne the wife does horses I do anthing with an engine! Fantastic thing to drive even stock.

Hopefully the parts will be here this week so I can a chance to dial it in a little

Welcome Hugo! Looking forward to pics.

 

Not many mods for these available yet as they're relatively new. Check out ace's white 250 on this forums, as he's done a few bits and pieces to his, aimed at track work. Also check out the K-Tec racing website in the UK.

 

Enjoy!

Thanks Guys yes done a LOT of research already and have a little bit of knowledge

Bazanko from Powerchip is a friend and says there are issues with the diff and overboosting but has a reverse engineer fix. He has done a lot of protoype work on my race cars over 15 years for me and I trust his judgement . The Focus is a good drive a bit more brutal than the 250 but build quality is poor (In my opinion) whilst I think that Renault has a greater amount of finese to it and I which i think will benefit from sensible mods that match the quality of the chassis.

what issues with the diff is there?

Something to do with the electronics backing off the torque on over boost I believe nothjing to do with the strength or abaility of it take more power. Just too smart for its own good :?

Did I meet you at Cruden Farm the other weekend? I had the blue and white Corvette and red Camaro there?

Interesting read, yes he did get it wrong back in the early days and most was a JV with overseas businesses. Regarding the last few he did for me all were dyno's three times and have full gas anlaysis performed over a two week period. I have never had an issue but people can make up their own mind.

I am not afffiated with Powerchip and these are only my personal observation and opinions . Maybe as I said I should go the BlueFin looking for opinions please

I was one of the folks at Cruden Farm, and gave you the card :wink:

 

Glad to see you made it here. Will be interesting to see the results you can get with a local tuner. Most here opt for a mob that sell a box called the RSTuner.

Email Paul from RSTuning. he's done a lot of 250's.

300bhp and a shed load more torque..

 

Bluefin are also good from what I hear, but I personally would rather go with a Renault specialist like RSTuning or Fastchip.

 

I would also be whacking on a K-tec or RsTuning 3" exhaust, and carbone lorraine Rc5+ pads and an uprated intercooler if you're racing it.
