    Nah it's worth it man for sure. Can't justify it on something like mine, that's just ridiculous, but yours is one of a kind now. It would be rude not to get decent suspension, would finish the package 100%. Then you can get on with enjoying it!!

    Huge outlay. Needs consideration which you’re doing. No rush imo. Your car sits great as is and is more than capable at the minute!

    Having said that.... if any car warranted the outlay of top drawer suspension it’s yours:wink:

    So snetterton update.
    Car was bloody brilliant. First proper time dry on track with fresh ad08rs.
    Very stable under braking but a slight judder as the day went on which I was think was due to the pads sticking to the disks.
    Handling was spot on too. I'm very surprised how well she handles just on lowered springs. No understeer or oversteer.
    Unfortunately no lap time data due to the rs monitor not having snetterton 300 which is odd.
    A few pictures!
    Also a shout out to team clique. Great to see everyone again. Shame no new faces were there! a66a4fba645ea0a396544baed96e3387.jpg bcde156e3c400523bef2644bcd0cf73f.jpg f51e07b815dfeadc942c067ab34e151a.jpg a7026248f09e809f133c08ee0e9c890f.jpg

    My DS2500 left deposits on discs when really hot. Causes brake judder.
    Speed you’re carrying you may need to look at top end pads:wink:

    This. Ds 1.11s or something more hardcore like cl rc5 or rc6 will remove pad deposits.

    Right update time
    as im sure youve all clocked on now is that the car has been fitted with AST 5100s.
    Was an absolute pig and a 10 shift needed to get them done.
    great work from Antony from ACS motorsport.
    Geo is still needed but feels great for now.
    Snetterton was incredible. The car felt sharp flat and poised which in turn allowed me to get on the power alot earlier!
    A few obligatory pictures and a video Ft, @Pav

    thought i'd come up with some joke to start this but cant think of any..anyway,think an expression "stunned" would be a spot on description..this car is a serious killing weapon..never thought a Renault can be this good..hats off mate..your confidence and lack of fear made it even a better experience for me..
    absolutely awesome..if you can get in for a passenger ride,please ask James..well worth it
