What was happening with the pads? I have ds1.11 btw and you wont go wrong, I swapped out for oem for a bit and the initial cold bite is better with the ds, if they are burnished properly that is
Yours not sorted yet mate ? I cant believe it still had just over half a tank of fuel left after going on track. Mpg had only dropped to 26 drove home on the fuel left in and still got 50 miles left on the range. Runs on fresh air compared to the meganes !Your fuel gauge makes me want to cry.
I thought it could only be down to a bad connection as all the other wiring looks ok. I guess the 172's are getting to the age where the wiring is about shot - had to chop fuel sender wiring back 4" to get back to decent wiring as it was all black/corroded under the insulation.Seen the fuse melt a few times, has been down to bad connection.

Well you know what they say about big shoes....Considered some reflective chevrons on the back for the motorway maintenance look too lol.
Ordered a small piece of 2mm alloy sheet to make a heel & toe accelerator pedal as struggling to heel and toe even with my size 11s. Marked out and ready to cut at the weekend.View attachment 1389679
Had the tailpipe trim on the megane hydrodipped so chucked the steering wheel insert in at the same time to tidy it up as was roughly painted black before
Fitted with ebay Renaultsport sticker
Not bad for a daft £5 as already paid for the materials on the tailpipe trim.

Cleaned up and ready for next outing. Hopefully Croft in October board underneath as typical leaky jc5 lol
Big shoes = big socks I was going to fit mk1 clio 16v steels at one point but not much in the way of brake coolingWell you know what they say about big shoes....
I think you should go for the sleeper look. Even with that mad stance and camber up front
I was going to sell them on but sadly somebody has chopped them to fit around the footrest so prob not worth much. You should see the price of r5gtt rubber mats, ive seen them go for £300+ a set. Crazy money for old rubber mats.Those mats are worth a bazilliongazillion pounds on the williams forum!
Good to meet you mate Had a good day at Trax, got offered a few track slots but didnt want to tempt fate and bust something with Croft coming up. Didnt get chance to see your ph1 as ran out of time, do you have a project thread on here ?Great project!
It was also great chatting to you on Sunday at trax, I was the brummie with the two other guys just as you popped the bonnet open
I have a few bits in stock for brake ducting, hopefully gte it on this weekend. Steels are quite weak, i have ultra rare et16 r5gtt cup car steels on my Extra and they bend for fun with a bit of kerb hopping on track. Ill stick with the heavy but solid 2118s on this as i know they can stand loads of abuseYou got brake ducts? Only thing with steel wheels is that when you get them warm and push on them hard they flex
At least they don’t crack like Superleggeras Or a turini, amount of them I’ve seen bent beyond belief is just stupidI have a few bits in stock for brake ducting, hopefully gte it on this weekend.

Thought about the washers too that would probably do the job. Alloy sheet cost £2.50 will see how this fairs. Might adjust the height of the acc pedal if poss, looks like it can be removed and adjusted. Not sure where the optimum height will be though compared to brake pedal.Great stuff! A while back I was trying to design a couple of blocks to go under the pedal but just ended up with a few washers instead.
I dont have any incar footage just off the rear view camera. Might set up a mo7nt inside for Croft if i get chance.I may have missed them, but do you have in-van vids on track?
Yes mate from Redcar so only down the road. Christmas stages will be epic go for itI bet this is fun round croft! I am hopefully going to get the Twingo ready to do the Christmas Stages at croft in December. Did I read somewhere that your from Redcar? If so I am only up the road in Seaton Carew.
Cheers mate hopefully they will do the business. No fogs in this as pov spec lolThe ducts look nice and neat. I wouldnt do them on mine as my lights are so dim I use the fogs to get as much help as possible
