    I'm sure i can, it's just a silicone pipe, but I just wanted to order it fast and place it in the car even faster, cause mine was leaking baad, and all the oil fumes were all over the camshaft cover ... :wink:

    Since, it looks like spring is here already. ( Belgium ), I thought why not change my rear discs/pads. Went for DS2500 pads from GT performance in France, and OEM Brembo slotted discs ( 290mm ) from UK shop on Ebay.

    - as most of you know how to change them, I would just stress out the small stuff..

    Don't forget to lubricate the pistons on the caliper with grease. don't forget to clean the small metal shapes that sit on the brake pads inside the caliper.

    Don't forget to bed in the pads since, that's the best way to get 100% braking performance.

    Some pictures:

    Where did you get your plastic bits for your steering wheel or are they painted?

    They are the OEM ones re-painted in matte black.. combined with the black alcantara wheel looks imo quite good. Better than the glossy ones everyone is getting, a la “trophy-R”

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of the gloss ones. I'm going to have to paint mine, I've painted my vents and they look pretty much the same as yours so will get them to match. I have seen some OEM ones that come in that colour though but Renault won't supply them separately.

    Today, went for a budget solution a la “Trophy-R”
    As for the cargo net.

    Has the same effect but some 400 £ cheaper ...

    A rather pointless picture of the front brake lines, but considering its 27°C outside, i don’t fancy removing the wheel :smile: for a full one, so the lazy version :smile:

    Bleeding planned for next week.

    Today was bleeding day :smile: ... brake fluid changed with OEM Renault DOT 5.1 , with higher wet/dry boiling point than Motul 660. Brake pedal feel is amazing, firm and direct. Kudos to Pro-Motorsport for the brake lines. A must do upgrade for track day guys. And another pointless picture of the vacuum pomp, pushing the air outside the lines/abs circuits.

    Considering i will replace the battery with a lighter one and swap the seats for pole position ones, this is a decent weight i guess ? (Half tank full )

    Today the horse stable was arranged :smile:

    Thanks to Charlie from CGR automotive for the net bar and Jamie for the Sabelt net and for the instructions too :smile:

    p.s. Plastics remain in place, only seatbelts are going away, and the wholes are being used to attach the bar .

    Some steps in pictures:

  19. I've got exactly the same kit (CGR bar & Sabelt net) and it's great! Now you can use the boot again :-D

    Today, the first alignment was done. Rear was perfect, front right was a bit off. Now the steering is perfectly straight.
    The most right are the new references. Maybe could help to someone who has trouble with alignment :wink:

    8b04fd5cbee3ff61dac9d9d31c76567e.jpg And in the meantime , rs logo removed from the back.. way cleaner than before :smile:

    Megane Trophy Remap DK.jpg So the numbers :

    The turbo pressure numbers are added by me, for a reference point. The turbo actuator can't take more longer, so at the top end the pressure is obviously going down. Still at middle range the pull is .... really really addictive

    .... Further the car feels just completely different. Amazing throttle response. Fast pulls at any gear. Little to none turbo lag. For all Renault owners, Dekker Motorsport is the place to be :smile:

    Since we now have the power, let’s strip some weight.

    The Recaro OEM are 27* KG each ! - *the wooden plate on the picture is like 200-300 grams.

    The Pole Positions are 7 kg per seat :wink:

    My calculations show a difference of 30kg all together.... ( frames, runners, side mounts ) compared to stock Recaro’s
