Megane RS250 Cup

Had a slight issue with the ASTs, they were sold with the car.


However, a brand new set was ordered for me at no extra cost to what I paid initially, and they are finally due to arrive this week, top guy!

My set of OZs are getting refurbed as they don't have the best finish and some of the paint has flaked off, in the next week or two and I have some 255 AD08Rs coming for the front.

Hopefully by the end of the month they will be on as will the ASTs, need Swivel bearings changed again, 2nd time I've had to do them, these ones have lasted about 40k.

Nah thats definitely not me haha, Didn't get as much track time as i wanted to last year due to engine/box issues but should get a fair bit this year seeing as the spec is pretty much spot on now, means i can spend money on driving it instead of fixing

Megane goes into SWR on Wednesday to get the AST's fitted, All 4 swivels replaced and the turrents modified to allow upto -4 degrees camber and being able to adjust them on the car without having to drop them.

OZ's are also getting dropped off at Wheelcoat this week as well, Just need to get my 255 AD08R's bought to fit to them.


Excited?


Yup.

ASTs fitted, all 4 swivels changed and the turrets modified to allow on car camber adjustment, running - 2.5 at the moment but got the option to run upto - 4 degrees, which will be handy when/if I decide to start using slicks

As if you had to modify the mounting points! Is it just a case of chopping the old ones out and welding in a bigger pipe section?
Don't need to modify them, but you can only get around - 2 degrees camber with the stock holes and you physically can't get into adjust the camber without dropping the strut.



Swivels isn't a hugely expensive issue tbh, Aaron's Autos do them for 175 a side for the lower ones. You can buy the upper and lower swivels for around 300 then another couple for fitting.

Certainly far cheaper than the 800 or so Renault want per side for new hubs and carriers

Dedication to get some camber there!

I test drove a 275 yesterday but found the seat a bit high which surprised me. Not heard anyone comment on it being an issue before.

I had my DZ03's on them and ran them for a couple of TD's then sold them. Not really wide enough and these came up.


Also, Sold the Cup wheels and have some TD 1.2s en route that shall be shod with some AR-1's or the new MRF tyres for trackdays.
