    Great thread and some very sympathetic mods. Like you I had a bluetooth JVC head unit and a couple of decent speakers installed, but other than that trying to keep the weight down. :smile:

    A temporary mod that's only fitted to the car for a few hours then removed...
    Having done a few night rallysprints of late has meant the need for additional lighting. Not wanting to fit a light pod or have to make any permanent mods to the car I fitted this 24" light bar to a number plate bracket with a hidden wiring plug that makes installation & removal a simple 5 minute job. Whilst certainly not aesthetically pleasing it has worked a treat on the last 2 night events.

    Great to see you're using the 275R the way its built for and all the best in your track events!

    May I ask do you need to remove the front bumper to install the tow strap, I had a look inside and to get the tow strap I bought from K-Tec Racing seems impossible through the front bumper. Thanks heaps :smile:

    Those LED light bars are crazy bright. Loads of the rally boys in the UK are switching to them now. I have a real urge for a MK3 Meg rally car. Not that rich sadly!

    No need to remove the bumper, I just trimmed the inside opening a little.

    Got myself a Clio IV daily driver, a liquid yellow Cup...
    The Megane will step up to full time track use now (replacing my Clio III track car) & will move onto rally rego.

    New semis for the new season.
    Opted for the newer R888R over last seasons R888 which although good for longer supersprints proved a little too hard a compound for shorter lap dash or hillclimb events.
    Also sprayed the red Speedlines black.

    Have you had a chance to drive on the R888R’s yet? Interested to see them vs the Cup 2’s and how much better dry grip is?

    I only use my 275 on weekends and track days so I was thinking to going to the R888R’s as my Street tyre next... just not sure how harsh ride and wet would be...

    Not yet (see above).
    2 sets of wheels/tyres is the only answer if your using it regularly on track.
    Road tyres don't work on track & track tyres don't work on road, the dual purpose type are a compromise at best.
    Not so much the harshness or even the wet i'd be concerned about but you'd be lucky to get a couple thousand k's from them & they'd be very noisy & the hot pickup would soon destroy the paintwork on the guards too. In short don't do it.
