I have been on CS for long, I have been lurcking around but haven't posted much so I thought I would start a project thread.
Its going to be pretty brief as I hate typing essay's.
I decided to go racing in the 2013 SMRC sports and saloons and decided on a Clio.
The car will be getting built as a track car this year and then extinguishers etc fitted threw the winter.
A nice 53 plate 172 cup came up with 62,000 miles on the clock and it needed a timing belt, engine mounts and a few other little bits
but I wasn't worried as I would be changing it all. So I drove it home to Aberdeen from Edinburgh and I was really impressed with the
way it went, my daily a Corsa VXR would be shown up by one of these in many ways, they are a lot of car for the cash.
So this is how it stood when I got it home in mid may.
I then set about finding a lock up to carry out build and got going.
A few nights work and I was left with this.
Then I moved onto cleaning and painting the underneath and arches.
After that was done I moved on to getting this puzzle in, ever tryed putting a square peg in a round hole.
This is the cage schematic
Started to put in cage, mostly tacked in before I ran out of gas.
Put an old seat in place to start mocking up the steering height while I get more gas.
Started to strip, modify and mock up the suspension.
Gotta love the camber.
So far the spec list is.
Oreca race cage, full dash will be kept for ease of build.
Sabelt renault sport wheel.
Seats and harnesses to be decided.
Cup racer brake ducts.
Cup racer tow eye's.
Aero locked bumper and bonnet.
Brake ducts painted and ready to go on.
Full cup racer suspension.
Pure motorsport strut brace & top mounts
PS axle strengthening kit and spherical bearings.
Speedline 2118's and williams wheel's.
Part rebuild after compression test showing good numbers.
Cat cams 421's.
Enlarged throttle body.
ARP con rod bolts
ACL race bearings on big ends.
Lightened & balanced flywheel & crankshaft.
Timing belt kit and dephaser pulley.
Im sure I have forgot about some things and have plenty to do with the parts I have so I will keep it updated when I get a chance.
Any comments welcome, good or bad, let me know if anything looks wrong as its my first full rebuild.
