Hello everybody - just joined the forum. 

My evil plan is to steal your collective Intellectual Property about how to make a fast track weapon out of a Megane RS Trophee on a budget.  (if I wasn't such a lard-arse I would go for a Clio)

Then to dominate the time sheets at Wakefield Park!

I have owned a Golf Gti for years - but was blown away by Rob 240's RS 275 Trophee RS on a ride along earlier in the year.  Then I drove my Mustang up at the farm and was disgusted with how sloppy it was in comparison.  (it is definitely not built for a race track)  Fast front wheel drives are awesome fun on a track when set-up right and that is what I want to learn.  

All advice welcome.

Trophee or Trophy?
Trophee is 250 only, and just a spec pack basically - not required for tracking.
Then there's 265 Trophy, Trophy+, Trophy 8:08, 275 Trophy and 275 Trophy-R....
 
 

Now that is why I am here. Had no idea there were two different Trophee/ Trophy models.

Will investigate but it is a 250.

Welcome Mark but I must ask you these questions three:

- WHAT is your name?

- WHAT is your favourite colour?

- WHAT is your preferred specification of RENAULTsport Megane configuration?

But seriously, I look forward to assisting on the journey!

Hi Alex - I didn’t know you were lurking out there in the interweb!

These Renaults are tricky - different model specs and trim packages every bloody year!

To answer your questions:

1. Mark
2. Maroon ( I am a Queenslander)
3. I would love to build a clio with a Megane 2 litre in it.

This + Megane engine/gearbox swap, please.
 
 

It is gorgeous and over the top and frivolous - i love it.
Do you know of anyone doing such an engine swap? They both have 2 litre blocks I think - but turbo plumbing is always an issue.

Chat to @ace who has built a turbo Clio (Clio 2).  If you do this, make sure to budget for the LSD because the lack of one will be especially noticeable with the turbo engine.

Biggest issue may be getting the various computers to work, so an extensive auto electrical path you will likely walk.

Then if course for the budget needed to turbo a Clio well, you could build a very mighty Meg. Stripped out (a la Trophy R) they get down close to Clio weights... And have the LSD and Perfohub which makes the magic happen that you refer to...

Food for thought. Welcome to the forum!

If Trauma gets the answers wrong he's straight into the wall at Turn 1 ?
