Weight the shin on your car is amazing, mine is getting sprayed in a months time, if it is have a shinny as that I will be well chuffed. Did you get a couple of extra coats of lacquer on it to get it like that or what?
Yea but I thought you might have lacquered it anyway. Looks good, Im getting my sprayed the new BMW black which looks well shinny on the BM 330 I seen it on so hopefully mine will be the same and probably get an extra couple coats of lacquer to make sure it is.
Monk - yeah I sorta gathered they were monacos after checking the techno website. The Megane has the detroits.
-60 with 17s. Hmmm, I like that. Can you tell me what shocks youre using and did you have to take the inners (sh!t guards) out? Any scraping?
theyre with standard shocks at the moment, still give improve handling though, also theres no rubbing either, even with a full car, when i had 3 people at the back the top bit of the back wheels goes up into the arches
Its got -55mm Spax on the front (on standard shocks, bad I know, Im trying to destroy them before I get uprated ones...... )
God knows what the back of the car is, could be 60mm, could be more. I can have 5 people in the car, and not even a scrubbing noise. All rear plastic arch guards are intact and in place.
With a car full once I stopped the car, got out and measured how far the back of the car was off the ground. It was the metal bit of my ignition key off the floor, which I was very impressed with! The rear arch covers up all the tyre and about an inch or two of the alloy with a car full too...
Next up 17s, but I think Id need a set of coilovers constructed for the front to be honest.....
I was looking at 15s with -55mm at the front, but the bodykit I want, the front is 4 inches deeper than the standard clio one... so after asking people with -55mm on 15s what their current ground clearence is, that would leave me with about 0.5inches ground clearence!?
Hope there wont be any potholes where this extremely low car will be driven, otherwise the bottom of the spoliers will be scraped along the ground! How would you open the doors near a kerb? Would the bottom edge rub on the pavement?
Then to Sc***horpe, and mine is far right on the top row of pictures. Shock that was taken in daylight! lol!
And also it is on the Leicstershire Cruise review, second row of pics, in the middle!
And if you goto the download link on the revievs page (at the bottom) and then download the video "Tim on the M18" (its only small) you can see the car in action.... (Thats only with me in, looks a LOT lower with peeps in the back...)
timrud, I see you have a phase3.. (Same as mine with rounded headlights)...
Could you measure the distance from the top of where your original grill was... to the bottom of your current bumper?
And what clearence do you have at the moment? (Bottom of Bumper to Floor)
The reason Im asking is, Im going to be getting some alloys very soon... and its a decision between a slammed clio on 15s or a semi-slammed clio on 16s.
15s seem to be a better option at the moment, mainly because I want to keep the car as quick as it is at the moment... dont wanna lose the little power I have.
