Better do a bit of an update on the old thing , as Im hoping to get some track days in this year after being out the loop recently with life,house move, work getting in the way.

I sold this car to Stu on here a few years ago he did SLS in it for a season and a bit then decided to break the car for parts.

I bought the rolling shell back from him along with Fraser Jamiesons engine from his old clio to put together a budget track toy.

So last year I think i only made 3 track days in it with a few upgrades along the way including AST's and a roll center kit making its way back onto the car--- yip budget spec blown.. Rolling Eyes Laughing

I did start to collect the parts to turbo it with a low boost 230bhp set up ,but decided not to go that route as i actually like the NA power in the clios.

Fast forward to now , the car is about to have a few winter upgrades , going back onto my old OMEX ecu and jenvey bodies along with a Dash2 so i can junk all the old french wiring.

I recognise those last parts. Smile

You’ll need a subframe and suspension parts too.

Throttle bodies and Omex should be awesome.

Was it omex you ran on your old cup car Dave , did you have it controlling the flatshift ?

I already have a roll center kit with lower uniballs that extend the track about 8mm each side not sure how much the cup cars were as they used laguna hubs as well i think.



Subframe like this

Yeah you can get the Omex to cut the ignition.
