    okay cheers
  4. The GT Performance Turbo Intake Pipe comes with an intercooler-turbo pipe, for £90 delivered on eBay, on my shopping list!

    got that on my watch list as well :laughing:
  6. 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:
  7. 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:

  8. Since, Trophy is the name, let it be without rear seats :smiley:.....

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

  10. 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.

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

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

  14. Time to wake up the topic with some fresh upgrades:

    brake lines from pro-line motorsport....

  15. 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.


    Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. 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.

  17. 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 )

  18. 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

  20. 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:

  22. Hey mate,

    I took one picture which should be clear.. im basically putting them at the end of the big control arm under the car it’s where the bolt meets the chassis. 6d46c5fe7cea306f67a0890b1fd11e19.jpg

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

  26. 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:

  27. 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

  28. while waiting for KTR frames/runners/sidemounts to install this window upgrade.

    this is probably the single most important upgrade for least 10 to 15 hp more :smile: :smile::smile:

  29. How have found the short shifter since fitting it ?

  30. I like it a lot. the changes are very quick, and the feeling is race car-ish :smile: the only bad part is removing the battery tray cause of all the bolts and bits..
  31. in the meantime, KTR frames, rails, recaro side mounts came and are ready to be place tomorrow. ( only driver's side for now )..

    No extra drillings is needed, everything bolts on directly.

    The side mounts are 580gr each.

  32. Had it gave better gear change feel? Has it taken away some of the notchy’nes ? Made feel more positive ?
    Mish View likes this.
  33. yes, change feel is more direct and obviously shorter as well. depends if you are tracking your car or not, maybe for a daily driving one is not so interesting, but once on the track, it makes sense :smile:
  34. After doing a full track day in France 3 weeks ago, some funny pics of consumption and brake pads wear ( EBC yellow stuff ) , which are really garbage :worried: , thanks to Jamie for the advise, DS uno in the front, ds2500 in the back... day and night difference....

  37. Let's wake up this topic a bit : I had the pole positions for quite a while now, but could not like them less, with every day passing by. too firm , cheap looking , cracking and not comfortable ( no adjustment at all ), so I've sold them, and had put back the OEM CS sportsters. Now, since the oem recaros are wearing off quite bad, it's time to refresh them with new textile. I will be going for full cloth material , with the renault sport logo gone, and the recaro one in yellow leather ... show me some other options im not thinking about. the idea is the color combo to remain the same , with a bit stronger attention to the yellow accents IMG_6723.jpg

  39. 803 kg ??? this is crazy , i can imagine it's quite fast now :smiley: ... It's a good moment to address some little changes as of today regarding the wheels :smile:
  40. Like I mentioned , I'm waiting for my Recaro seats to arrive back , so the gray wheels could use some black plastidip spray...

    1: Clean the wheels as good as you can.
    2: Dry them perfectly. ( use an air gun if you have one, it's easier and you can get the last drops of water trapped in between some tight areas)
    3: tape around the rim itself, so you don't spray unnecessary rubbber-paint on the tyre.
    4: Have patience and wait 5-6 min in between each coat. I did 8 hands ( coats ) in total.
    5: Let it dry properly and enjoy your new black wheel. 1.JPG 2.JPG 3.JPG 4.JPG 5.JPG
