    I just broke our record in a Caterham Seven 420 R

    But can you guess how much by? Here's a clue: it was VERY close. New video here, for those who are interested and want to see some Seven 420 R dancing...

    weird clutch problem

    Hello friends I have a clio rs 172 ph1 and when I bought it I had the original clutch fitted, but as I did a general overhaul I ended up replacing it with one (valeu) but at the end of a track day it started making noise and without any sensitivity, I came back the change there, on the following...

    Clio Cup Race Car Mk1 for sale

    Hello fellow Clio rs fans! I have somewhat of a forgotten gem for sale, the very 1st Clio rs in history. Registered in week 50 of 1990, this was made a year before the road car went on sale. A genuine RS Factory race car with less than 22,000 miles, an MOT and even the factory Renault Clio Cup...

    From gravel to road 172 PH1

    Good day all! It has been pretty much seven years since I have posted here on the forum about my gravel Clio rs 172. Basically, I have raced it in snow, ice, and gravel. I was not kind at all to it. It does have quite a few special bits to it, and it even has a special VIN number. Good bits...

    Colesy track car build again 172

    Hi, so I thought I’d document my journey with my 172 into track car/possibly race car. A little bit of background about me this is actually my 4th 172 and 7th clio having had 2x 172 cups 2x172 1x 182 and 2x 1.2’s. Day job I’m a technician for Porsche which is fun to say the least. So back in...

    182 Full Custom Roll Cage Design

    Hello All, Nearly completed stripping a 182 to turn it into a track car so been discussing what to do with the roll cage. So would be great to hear peoples thoughts and ideas to make a better roll cage. Ideally would want to have a Custom Cages multipoint weld in cage (like below) but without...

    UCH Relocation

    How have people mounted their UCH in track/race cars. Just in the process of making a bracket for mine and looking for some inspiration. Would be awesome if anyone has any useful pictures of theirs :smile: TIA

    EMS recommendations

    Right, so. My track car, a Clio 172 Cup, has stopped responding to throttle input. In addition, it's started idling a little high- about 1900 RPM- and quite rough. I've checked the pedal box, and that works. I've checked the throttle body, and that works. I've checked the wiring, and while I...

    Return of the Storm Grey 172 track car

    Hi all, thought id put together a bit of project thread for the Clio as a log of what I’ve done to it. So, I’ve owned the Storm Grey 172 for 4 months and I think its fairly well known on here, with several of its previous owners being CS members, the last one being @Losi_8_boy, who bought it...

    RB PH1 172 Rally Car Progress

    So two weeks ago me and my girlfriend (Alex) bought a ph1 172 car with a full weld in roll cage by Custom Cages. We wanted it as a project to do over the summer break whilst off University and our intention is to have it as a track only car and maybe compete in it one day . The pics below show...

    That same old spring rate conversation

    I am currently running with Spax RSX, they are decent but they're my first ever coilovers so can't compare them to too much. The spring rates are apparently 340lb/230lb ish which, from going on track a hand full of times, I have decided are just too soft for a track car, however probably very...

    Super_ted's 182 track car build

    Sooo..... Managed to pick this up very cheap so thought it would be rude not to buy it and turn it into a dedicated track car / trailer queen and hopefully take Part in the Tricolore series next year. It's a 2004 182 cup so I'm told but a few have already pointed out the lack of boot spoiler...

    Looking for replacement 172 Cup parts

    What's the best place to look for replacement stock bits for a 172 Cup? I'm looking for brake discs and pads, shocks and springs just now. None of it's urgent, but I like to start doing my research early. On a not entirely related note, what's the most cost-effective route to go down if I'm...

    ITB'd / Michelin Build / 182

    Hi Guys, I managed to get my hands on a RB 182 Cup Pack over the weekend after much looking & debating. The car in question was brought from another Forum member. First impressions of the car are good! Expectations are always high when there are so many good examples out there. Generally...

    Cub's Flamer - Supercharged, Cage etc

    Had it about 8 months now, bought from JMS with a replacement engine and gearbox. I have a varied car background, from humble rover metro GTAs to a 911 C4S, but I wanted a 172 to be able to get my hands dirty(ish) and the plan is to make it a fast road / occassional trackday car and mod it...
