172 CUP Track Car

Hi all. I'm new to the French car scene. I stumbled a cross this 172 cup as my previous track car was set on fire on my drive :(

Here it is

44620F1D-B469-4D54-BB7C-95B361AA682E_zpslbfujrur.jpg


So plan is to build it for track/weekend blast and a trip or 2 to the NurburgRing.

I'm coming from a vag back so new to the renault way and N/A engine.

Few pics of my old track toy

quick spec - forged engine 300bhp 310ft, AP racing brakes, B16s, custom wide track, custom manual steering conversion, carbon bonnet, LSD fully stripped.

Plan is to build the clio to better spec, not to worried about the power difference as I love how the clios engine goes. I don't miss the turbo feeling driving the clio as I have this for a daily :)

Cool love the Ibiza that was my second Ibiza running K04 :)

Wow loads of bits to bolt on! I bet you'll have a right laugh in the cup when it's all finished :)
Yeah just a few. Hopefully will be a laugh, I've always wanted to try one :)

going by that ibiza this should be a beast!
Thanks mucka

Yeah just whip the carbon canister off! I just pulled mine off and cut the wires out and blanked off the hose.
Sweet will crack on with that then.

Plans sound great, some awesome progress already.

I have a little soft spot for those old ibiza's quite a few friends have owned them in the past
they are awesome cars to drive so under estimated aswell. Don't handle the best I had to do a lot of work to get mine to handle aswell as it did.

Mine wasn't an Ibiza underneath by the end of it tho lol but meant I could run camber like this and more.

Picture1806_zpsc0a1c159.jpg


Awesome, good to see it's going to be properly used too!
Thanks, it will defo be built to be driven and driven hard

Some very nice parts waiting to be bolted on there!
thanks can't wait

I'm just unlocking me garage now so will update later tonight :)

Yeah I must admit my mates had the legs in terms of speed/acceleration as the Ibiza 1.8t is a lot more tuneable as we all know but on the twisties they'd all happily admit my 172 at the time won hands down.

A mate of mine still has one the same colour as your old one, Dave Martin from Birmingham don't know if you know him?

What setup were you running on the Ibiza exactly?

Oh anyone got any hints and tips on setting the PMS linkage up??

I've put the linkage together (gearbox end) with out doing up the little 10mm nut and 5mm Allen key bolt (clamps the black link bar to the gold pivot joint) I can select all gears R & 1-5 fine, as soon as I tighten the last bolt I can't get reverse or if I tight the bolt whilst it's in reverse I can only get reverse and 1St :( any quick tips? I had to stop for me tea before I could finish it lol

easy mucka, how's things?

haha you still swapping cars lol? What you got atm? Is recommend getting one tho, outs a smile on my face every time I drive it :)

Might go stage 1, can't be doing with putting loads a money into the leon. Everything you need for stage2+ is around 1k, like the clutch decat/sport cat, Apr HPFP lol to much money lol.

Will drop you a text when I have some spare cash about a stage 1 map :)

Good work so far mate

Your daily driver is very smart aswel

Did more on the car tonight

got the PMS linkage all set up :) mine was hitting the lambda sensor in 4th and 5th, hitting the tunnel in 5th, 1st and reverse. All sorted now tho which is good. Seat position with the steering wheel closer and the gear stick closer really makes a difference :)

anyway few pics of the linkage

with that done I whipped the track rod ends off and steering boots off to find the inner tie arms completely knackered. Just gotta get me tool to undo them.

218B5388-4F1B-416D-B666-75A09F1F858E_zpsto3xr7ct.jpg


also ripped out the carbon can

C30FA2E6-2007-435A-A841-C368D7DF7403_zpsphf0pu5y.jpg


also pulled some of the interior out guessing most of it's been out before as there clips broken screws missing and things generally not put together well lol.
Will try and get more work done Thursday night :)
 
#27
All good mate yourself? Yes lol, currently in a MK4 Golf which i got cheap due to early retirement after my motocross accident. Got a 172 Cup lined up for Thursday night for a viewing.

Have it a lick of paint to stop rusting

8989EC9A-A7B3-4189-9027-4F6488296640_zpscbjwf4so.jpg


Then moved onto the wiring in the back, so striped the spoiler off and headlining

B8173359-703C-4F60-931F-3F4E9F981817_zpstdjersa8.jpg


and pull the wires through the boot and stripped all the wiring off the wheel arches

EFA01956-77D5-4607-92D1-61FE7E864B0C_zpsdmvuwomh.jpg


Stripped and tidied.

9DCC829A-52B8-4D45-9A68-B197EBE315FF_zpsdoyleq4b.jpg


all the sound Deading is striped out even the roof lining silicone which was a right pain

B0BCFC70-861B-4D36-82A5-517F1A5E8D4D_zpsfqrnnpws.jpg


Offside wiring all tidied

420188C5-516E-46B8-8BA5-9F72EA37E9D6_zpsroiu03wr.jpg


and near side all tidied along with the boot wiring

Unfortunately I've come home tonight to find some penis has broken in my house and turned it upside down looking for my spare car key and found them and nicked my car at 4.30pm this afternoon.


Located in Brownsover, rugby, Warwickshire. Anyone info will be great if anyone sees it please


Anyone see any parts etc in eBay or FB please share.
