David's Clio 172 Cup from Czech Rep.



  Clio 172 Cup
Hi everyone from the Czech Republic,

I would like to introduce my track project, and learn something new, especialy about setting for track use.

in 2015 a car appeared in the Czech Republic for sale, in a terrible condition.
Still, I bought him for about 1100£ , with the idea that it will be a toy for a trackday. I live in Brno, Czech Rep, 15 minutes away from Grand Prix Circuit, so ideal :)
All modifications arise in my head and at home

Thanks guys

The first year I had red track wheels, and always had problems with the brakes. High temperatures, high wear etc ...
At the end of the season on timeattack I ended off the track, and had to buy better brakes.

Very nice build indeed.

Does you 172 cup lower inlet manifold have RS stamp on it?
If so did you fit that or did it come with the car and what year is the car please?

It seems some 172 cups got RS lower inlets and some did not.....

Thank you, it's never ending work :)
Yes, I have the RS lower inlet and car is 2003

But i would like to try inlet from Clio 197 to F4R736 this winter, can you recommend this? Will this change have any benefits?

I have no idea, my car is a 52 plate and does not have RS lower inlet, so I have ordered a lower RS inlet from ebay to try.
