Matts Red 250 Cup

  1. Did you have the bolt that ktec sell or something similar before?
  2. No mate I sourced an M12 12.9 tensile bolt local. Fitted the mount etc all back up.

    I've also made another purchase....the KW clubsports that where actually on the car when I sold it which is a touch as I've had them from new and also have the raeder spring rates etc on so gave them a clean up and ready for fitting 899699dacc1e8ac593f59c925a9a55d5.jpg 54c6c6cad67583db25751f1b885ba3ae.jpg

  3. Ahhh ok. I’m going to do this I think as a precaution. Read about this before I got one. KW’s what are they like on the road?

  5. Great. I have them in my Meg.
    They are as good as you want them to be depending on your setup.

  6. how would you compare the KW clubsport vs the AST 5100 ... track/road ?

    p.s. my concern is , if the rear transformation of a coilover given by AST, provides better results than the standard setup by KW-OEM one ? both road and track
  7. Never tried the AST so I can't be objective.

    I found the Clubsport so good on my 197 that I bought them for the Megane even before I knew which Megane I'm going to buy.

    And if you want a more track oriented setup go to Raider motorsport for their tune up. I'm using the Meg mostly for road and got it setup great for my kind of use.
  8. That's dedication mate :smile:

    - Can't really say it yet 100%, but I think I'll be using meggy 65/35 road/track
  9. Was really impressed how Clubsport performed against the KW V3 on my 197 and I knew I wanted them on my 265 Cup.
  10. I think they are great, my only worry with the AST is the amount them that need servicing or rebuilds. I know a few who have had them fail and need a rebuild after not much use

  11. So another month and another set of wheels...this time SSR Type F 18x8.5 et48 absolutely perfect for Megane. I also got this drawing done by a chap on Instagram who I met at autosport which I'll be having done on a big canvass for the garage e4ccf7bce3979af8a7357e39cd478305.jpg a0195114b6e6012f36f8c18dae6f3649.jpg

  12. Matt, it says 5x100 ??? you getting them redrilled :confused:
  13. Jdm wheels often have the wrong pcd stamped on
  14. Looks awesome, can't wait to see them on your car. Getting them repainted?

    Would a setup like that - 18x8.5 ET48 - work on a 250 without camber adjustment on the front?
  15. Thanks, I'm torn between a couple of colours but maybe like my original enkeis a dark shadow chrome. Erm yes you'll be ok, it's very close to running 20mm spacers on stock wheels which many do

  16. They are for the load ratings of 4 and 5 stud but for what ever reason the Wizards in Japan decided to out x100 haha is common on ray's wheels etc too

  27. Have you not got bored and fancied selling it yet. The TT rs and m3 didn't last long.
  28. Funny you should say that it's gone to a new home now, money in the bank for house stuff and a nice 360bhp dsg gti to piss about in fa53868da060b88062bec99bb24848d8.jpg 5d2cc25d069ac788dcb972f8d593024c.jpg 5df8f9742e7f1c989aab432eeda153bc.jpg e9ce3b30096f7d74cd8827b661069eee.jpg 648c4b2cea9516b8f68043a2b1c262e0.jpg e46d3fbef821832eab7c48c574ed6d1e.jpg

  34. New engine arrived today alone with a box of parts from Renault Parts Direct and as usual epic service. Built up the new lump and done Cambelt, waterpump, dephaser, aux, plugs etc just need to fit new clutch then it's good to go. As you can see the old lump is toast d7f05e6d9bc58ae4623ec405ba5c01dd.jpg 47aa7b1cb6e8d208047fb7817bfa6500.jpg ca97a5bf787c515e4c93cd2243946033.jpg 3531ce4500af1e4087435d926d291644.jpg

  39. I should probably stop twatting the limiter then... not on purpose i must add. 4 years if 8.5k na goodness is hard to forget
  40. Mate my red one used to be bounced off the limiter and was perfect
