Visit my website, with lots of photo content of shows, and the build Click Here!!

I will try keep this thread updated as much as possible, remember the following images and narrative are personal views during my ownership and experiences with this fantastic hot-hatch. Registered on 14th January 2012, Acquired on 1st November 2014.

My plans change a lot so I won't put much, but a overview is this will be running a RS250 Megane Engine with Stage 2 Hybrid fitted by Cooksport, with 3" titanium exhaust built by DaveFabUK, Mapped by RSTuning, Uprated Intercooler from Forge, and loads of extra goodies.

Specifcation From Factory:
The RenaultSport Clio 200 Raider was launched in October 2011, it is a Limited Edition version of the much loved RenaultSport Clio 200 Cup. At £21,695, it’s the first £20K-plus Clio to greet the UK since the mad V6. With 50 licensed, but only 28 produced, this is a rare beauty that came in two colour options of which 17 were Stealth Grey and 11 were Diavolo Red. The original 200's stood on 17 inch alloys wrapped in Continental ContiSportContact 5's, Renault swapped these out for 18 inch R26R alloys wrapped in Bridgestone RE 050A's. Renault also swapped out the standard seats not just for the upgraded alcantara Recaro Sportster CS seats, but made it standard with full leather versions! The only option given to people purchasing the Raider was either having the RS Monitor or upgrading to the TomTom satnav.
The Basic Car:
Cup chassis
Cruise control
Traction control
Fog lights
Limited Edition Extras:
Matt diavolo red paintwork
Full leather Recaro sportster cs seats
R26R 18 inch alloys
GT spoiler
TomTom satnav
Engine: In-line 4cyl, 1998cc
Max power: 197bhp @ 7100rpm
Max torque: 159lb ft @5400rpm
0-60: 6.9 sec (claimed 0-62mph)
Top speed: 141mph

Service and Maintenance:
The car is maintained to the highest standard. For all services and work I only used reputable Renault specialists who know the car inside and out. For all fluid changes I have only ever used top quality fluids (such as Elf Evolution SXR 5w40, ATE Super Blue Brake Fluid). I've only ever had NGK R PFR7Z TG spark plugs fitted in the Raider, as these are the recommend NGK Platinum from Renault. The Raider also only gets fueled with either Shell V-Power Nitro+ 99 Octane or BP Ultimate 98 Octane (reasons for this will be explained below).
