    145k Service! Few guides please

    Hi all, So my 172 cup is about to hit 145k miles... I'm doing the usual oil and filters, also plugs and aux belt. I know its easy on a cup but does anyone have a guide for the aux belt? Also reading that fuel filter is needed at 150k miles but not easy to do yourself?

    Airbag removal with Buckets/Harnesses

    Maybe a stupid question but thought I'd double check... My cup has no side airbags and the drivers has gone when I fitted the new steering wheel so should I be removing the passenger side airbag too? I've currently got it switched off anyway using the door handle switch...

    Eibach Camber bolt washer issue

    Hi all Just been fitting some new camber bolts. One went on fine but the other looks like the tab on the washer hasn't been manufactured correctly as it won't actually fit into the shock bolt hole. My question is do I actually need them? Can I just take the one off the other side or do I need...

    Can't decide. Both looking to be around the £100 mark for TRS or RSA ones. Initially just for track days but POSSIBLY for a bit more later on.

    What's this cable?

    Decided to take all the wiring out of the boot lid today and thread it through the outer skin of the shell to tidy it all up but found this cable and connector on both sides that's not actually doing anything... Some sort of option? Can I cut it off?

    Yet another 172 Cup project...

    Some of you might know I've had about 5 RS clios now and the most recent 172 cup was bought for whizzing around Berlin when I was working out there. It had a hard life in -30° temps... Now being back in Bristol, it's not getting any use and so I'm using it as a track/weekend/teach myself...

    172 Cup Revving when dipping clutch

    Morning all So my shed (nearly 135k miles now!!!) recently had a new injector and since then has been revving itself when dipping the clutch whilst coming to a stand still. This seems to be most pronounced when cold but it is rarely getting warm lately as the drive to work is roughly 4...

    Novero Rockaway Bluetooth Headphones Review!

    Thought i'd do a quick review of these seeing as they are so new. Normally I research things a lot before purchasing but in this case, they are so new (released this week) that there are zero reviews and no more info than what is on the website. Anyway, they are Novero Rockaway bluetooth in...

    Surround Sound Help

    I'm useless with this stuff. Just bought a Yamaha AV763 cheap and have got it working OK with the PS3 and Apple TV2 but I am struggling with setup with my Sumvision Micro2 HD Media player. There are no audio options on the player so I guess it's just Dolby Digital or DTS pass through over HDMI...

    My F1 British GP 2011 Photos

    It's been an epic weekend apart from the fact my face is now redder than a beetroot. Lewis Hamilton came over and shook my hand after an interview that was done with him and Jenson. He also did his usual donuts in the warm down lap right in front of out Grandstand. Such support for him, the...

    I need to run a power cable from the battery, through the bulkhead and inside the car but for ease of removal I want to put a split in it half way. Can someone point me in the direction of some decent connectors or male/female plugs suitable for 12v?
