Had a conversation today from Reno about the upgrades to the Cup. Basically I was told that there is almost no chance that seats or roll cage will be available. I asked about fitting aftermarket seats and was informed that this would screw up the pretensioners in the seat and would therefore make the seat mechanism half as effective in a crash.
R-Sport are still working on engine mods and new exhaust but said they are conducting experiements on power to cost ratio because they received the clio cup so late in the day. These mods may come out but havent been 100% confirmed and could be several months off. The mods are apparently not available to any other 172 owners, except the Cups, which is stupid. Im sure some 172 owners would like the upgrades.
The exhaust may be a full system from the manifold but could cost more than most people would want to pay because they want to produce something that gives better power gains.
Pissed of about the competition seats, I cant believe Reno could f*ck that up - then again, I can.
Any thoughts or views on this?
