Cant be that expensive for a sport seriously what we talking £400-700, money well spent when you can lower it as low as you want n not have to ***** about if you buy 30mm n it doesnt look any different.
How desperate ard you for lowering because if you can wait a few months save a few quid each month. Im not trying to say coilovers are the only way but they are proberly the best thing ive bought for mine because you can drop them to what ever you like just so you cant get it exactly how you want it.
A standard Cup will run rings round round cheapy £400 coilovered shod car. The 197 200 set up is superb for a stock car. Infact I, dont even think you can get ktec specials for them yet............. thank god.
Granted the cars do look a lot better when lowered, but imho, there isnt a better handling 'hot hatch' on the road today. I personally think renault spent millions of pounds developing these cars with keen drivers in mind. Some lowering springs made by Herman will only retract some of that.
When i ran my old one on H&R's coilovers it was superb, like the stock Cup set up but with the added lowness i could dial in. The Eibachs only lower around 20mm and that's on non cupped cars, so its not worth it on the cup chassis as they are already 7-10mm lower.............. H&R springs, i've heard conflicting stories tbh, look nice but too much for a standard shock? My advice unless its KW/H&R/Billstein don't bother.
I'd be interested, I'm a pussy and wont track mine, however I want to see if there is a marked difference (my money says no) I want kev to bring his out of hibernation for comparison. You get that 197 feeling most days when you turn the steering wheel
On the road, tbh I doubt anyone would push hard enough for there to be a significant difference.
They're good on track, but just good. The slagathor 172 was awesome.
Difference is, with the 172 I'd finish a trackday and be planning the next. Not sure I can be bothered in the 200.
If I could hand it back without consequence, it would be gone tomorrow for a trophy. I'd just put up with the fact that it would be a lesser day to day car.
