Can anyone help.
With the car running normally but stationary should it be fairly easy to push the brake peddle to the floor.
On a damp road (in safe circumstances) doing 50 - 60 mph I can hit the floor without triggering the ABS. The car stops pretty well but I feel this is not as good as it...

I'm slowly bit by bit getting round to all the things I wanted to check/change on the T.
My question today is about bushes and mounts. I'm sure one of them (at least) needs changing but I have no idea what types there are. Bushes, engine mounts, dogbone etc. Any good guide on what...

Well as the car is off the road and i managed to get this paint from work for £3.00 i decided to spray the rocker.
I had the engine running for 20mins to warm it up so the paint was not going to take ages to dry.
Masked it all up and covered everything i could, Wiped it all down, Cleaned it the...

I'm in need of some rear shocks for my trophy, everywhere I ring they are on back order or have no ETA, Renault are useless and keep giving me normal 172/182 parts... my local dealers aren't any better. But my options seem to be MF revalved Koni's, standard Koni's or still try seek the...
Hello Trophy owners
My Clio Trophy, which I’ve had from new, was stolen this week. It was parked on the road just outside the house. During the night thieves broke into house front door and stole the keys. In the morning the car was gone.
Stolen from Nimrod Road, London SW16. Reg is LV55...

Just noticed this recently, I've had to do a few full lock turns (or near full lock) and there's been a slight juddering. It come's through the steering wheel but feels suspension related.
Anyone got any ideas?
I can't remember from my previous T, but is this normal with the sachs?
Can somebody tell me where I might be able to get a new front splitter from? And aprox how much it might be.
I had a very slight mishap and removed the passenger side corner of mine. So I need to replace the hole thing.
Im contemplating doing a track day soon in my T, and just wondering what settings to have the front dampers set to for it.
Its got un-pinned dampers up font with MF springs all round and on the standard rear shocks. Cheers...
I recently bought #091 (Yeah I've read all the history but she's in good shape), and I'm shopping for tyres to fit the stock alloys. Can anyone tell me whether a 215/45/16 will work on them? I have done a bit of research and it seems to be fine but would be grateful if anyone has...
Hi - probably a dumb question, but if I want to get #478 feeling as "new" as I can, and i'm already all-in for a BG damper refurb, assume it makes sense to do the rears as well.
Original sachs rears seem to be £105 as well - questions are:
- Just the shocks, or make sense for Springs as well...
Hi - my dampers due to go in at BG on October 31st. Getting the struts power coated too.
It's expensive enough already (and have been happily buying other bits for my new car without keeping an eye on what i'm spending!) - and adds another £170 to the bill.
Has anyone done this, and if you...
Here we have my Renault Clio hill climber that ive used for the past 3 years with great success.
This car has been developed throughout my ownership to be a competitive car and the quickest Clio in class winning both my class and overall championship in 2013.
Throughout 2014 ive spent time...
So, my dampers are well and truly in need of a refurb :(
Whilst they're off the car, I thought I might as well collect some bits to give the suspension a bit of an overhaul / refresh.
I'll be replacing the steering rack bushes, ARB bushes, track rod arms and boots, track rod ends, lower...

when i got my trophy i had rear cup suspension on mines and thinking of changing to koni's would i benefit from these on the road if i was to put these on. probs never going to track it so just a thought of putting them on.
thanks in advance
........have had a very frustrating few weeks after the T was finally paid for outright. I think it's just been a month of 'doom' but hopefully the rectification and replacement of various components will see the T right as rain!
It started off with a very continuous issue with my Janspeed...
Hi, this is what i currently run with some thoughts on changes;
JMS RS2 with upgraded engine mounts ( probably replace with standard and get updated map )
upgraded dogbone and gearbox mounts.
fully polybushed all round.
whiteline rear arb.
standard suspension all round with refurbed front sachs...
been looking at getting a second car, and a Trophy has always been on the list...:)
Have saw one and put a deposit down, but as it's so far away haven't been able to inspect it.
There's no info about whether the dampers have any attention, so I'm assuming they won't have had a...
With deep sorrow the time has come to sell my much loved Trophy as I am now in need of a 5 door car as we are expecting a new arrival in the family. The car has been very well maintained and drives absolutely superbly. I have owned the Trophy for 5 and a half years and have not had a single...
