Im not very technical when it comes to electrics but simply put, cold cranking amps is how much 'power' it is able to release when powering up the starter motor. Needs to be high enough CCA basically.
Amp hours is how much/how long the battery can hold charge.
Google will give a better answer...
If you are keeping it in the same place you will need to buy/make a bracket to hold it in place.
You can get them as light as 1kg but which ever one you go for, check it will hold enough charge and have enough cold cranking amps.
Great day at Snetterton on 21st Sept, first time in the dry and first outing since the engine work.
Felt much better, had some gearbox oil try to escape during the first session pushing it but after a clear up it was fine for the rest of the day, bit weird.
Could have leaked some from the...
All non essential wires removed from the tailgate today. Waiting on some locking pins to arrive, then I can cut out the inner boot skin and remove latch.
Repaired a couple of surface rust areas behind the bumber.
Then I had to grind off a seized exhaust hangar bolt, scrape off more surface...
After a bit of chatting with fellow clio owners and reading the interwebs the general thought was that the weighbridge was way off. No way it sill over 1000kg.
The door inner skins will be cut out when I fit plastic windows early next year :)
Got the clio on a weighbridge today.
I think the official renault kerb weight for mine is 1110kg, mine weighed 1020kg today with 1/8 tank of fuel. So 90kg lost. Was hoping it would be a bit lighter but this sounds about right really.
Still chasing the goal of 200bhp per ton, so another 60kg...
Big week for the clio! Had the following;
PMS lightweight pulleys & AC delete kit
197 cams with custom timing
ARP rod bolts
Ktec sports cat
OEM clutch & cable
Various seals replaced
Black series ARB & steering rack bushes...
If I spin in the clio and hit someone in a 40k car they can f**k off if they think I'm paying 1000's to fix it. They should either be insured or expect to repair it themselves. That's the risk you take if you don't get insurance!
The back of mine looks higher than yours and I have lowering springs! No doubt my weight transfer situation is messed up too because it's also fairly lively at the rear, but it's also fun, and I have an ARB. Coilovers are next on the list!
