    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    I bet mine were old stock with no washers. Live and learn I suppose. Cheers

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    I’ll be having a look as I haven’t made a move with the mechanic yet but I’m pretty sure he fitted them correctly.

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    Wow. You can’t say fairer than that and I was already preparing my email to powerflex until I got to the second to last paragraph which excludes any part labelled ‘BLK” :LOL: gutted.

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    That’s what’s guiding me toward the purple bushes. I’ve tried these and I’m not particularly impressed so I’ll try the purple. Cheers

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    One of the few items I haven’t replaced. Cheers.

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    That’s a fair point, but I was sort of thinking they were a fit and forget type of part. If that’s the case though I’m thinking maybe I will put the purple road series in? Surely there life expectancy will be high but when you start throwing Trackdays in its another can of worms.

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    I’ll drop them an email. You never know, even after all this time is still not really good enough. Cheers

    Solid nylon? Any more details on those mate? Cheers

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    Is it me or do you think 3 years is a long enough service life for an “up rated” bush? I bet the OEM bushes on the car when I bought it lasted 3 times longer than that.

    Powerflex failure after 3 years???

    Afternoon all, I’ve just had my second failed black series bush on the 182. First was the inner roll bar bush, now a wishbone bush. Both were black series, and both failed in 3 years. Granted the car is driven hard and it’s done 10 Trackdays and around 8 thousand miles. I don’t feel like I’ve...

    New to the clio sport whats best to buy

    I took a ride in a members car last year, it was a 172 showing over 270k on the clock. Pulled like a train. He’s a very good mechanic but if you know a very good mechanic there’s no reason you can’t do the same.

    Mart.s MK6 Fiesta ST Mountune MR200

    I’ve always liked the look of these and this one is no exception. I would definitely lose the wind deflectors as above and the yellow callipers. Just my personal taste but otherwise a good looking car.

    Low miles Titanium 182 on ebay

    Could be wrong but it looks like it’s had a new grill, don’t think the stickers are correct but that could have been swapped for cosmetic reasons rather than crash damage. If it’s been for sale forever there could be a deal on. Worth a look IMO of course.

    34 years ago Rallying lost a big talent.

    What an awesome spectacle. Rally driving at that level truly is an art form. Such a shame accidents like that were allowed to happen.

    34 years ago Rallying lost a big talent.

    From what I’ve seen you were the “man” if you got your fingers on the paint work of a passing group B rally car. A period of unlimited horse power and courage that I look back on in admiration and disbelief. Maybe Henri Toivensen wasn’t a massive player in that arena but any man/co driver who...

    Handling issues

    I imagine it would make a difference as there are differences in spring rate between the two. There should be coloured markings on the springs, check that they match.

    New (to me) Clio 182- decat, poor running on cold start- worth a remap?

    If you don’t go down that route you need to get your car to Chris at EFI Parts in Runcorn. Absolute wizard with Renaults and a top bloke to boot.

    Undertray?

    Yes, it’s got the circular inspection hole to get to the sump plug.

    Undertray?

    The second item down on the left should be what you need.

    Buying OEM suspension from scratch - shopping list

    Pretty sure you can’t use BC top mounts with OEM struts. I’m sure I spoke to Kam Racing about that a while ago.

    If you had to choose one or the other for your clio?

    You can’t go wrong with a full poly bush, will knock years off the motor.

    Handling issues

    Me personally, I’d never replace one spring without doing the other but I’m unsure if there would be any major effects from what they have done. Do the arb bushes, eliminate them as they need doing anyway. Test the car and look to the next area if needed.

    Handling issues

    Well in any case it sounds like they need changing. Have you grasped the wheels and checked for any movement in any direction?

    106 turbo winter project

    I find it hard to believe some people can take so little pride in their work. Car looks great now. Good effort.
