Hi from OZ...

  1. Yep.
  2. 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:
  3. Love the R it looks beautiful.

  4. Cheers.
  5. Cheers Lewis, they are a great package.
  6. 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.

  7. 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:
  8. 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!
  9. No need to remove the bumper, I just trimmed the inside opening a little.

    The Megane will step up to full time track use now (replacing my Clio III track car) & will move onto rally rego.

  18. 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.

  21. 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...

  22. 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.

  24. Well ended up with a second set of wheels (18 inch Tibors in gunmetal) so I’ll be running the toyo’s on those and keep that 19 Turini’s for daily duty.

  29. As my thread says ‘hi from oz’ I have no idea where the West midlands is. There’s plenty of threads on who tunes these cars. Try reading the applicable forums.
