    I'm aiming for 500bhp 500ftlb. The biggest restriction is the fuel system (no rising rate) & the tiny throttle body.

    Wow - first look at this one, I've always loved the 'Big Bum' Meggy, and the look of this looks absolutely perfect, and to stick 500 bhp / ftlb and some great audio components in there, this is my kind of heaven. keep those updates coming.

    Fantastic. I hate this club sometimes it makes me want to get into massive amounts of debt buying toys like this.

    Wow that is one nice spec list, do you have to do anything to the gearboxes on these, I.e. LSD, tougher driveshafts?

    LSD as standard on a r26/r
    They take around 400-450ibft without any mods.

    Yes mine was the one with the big brakes. I hope the battery isn't knackered as it's new.
    I spoke to quite a few people but never really caught any names.

    Wow 400-450lbft as standard, that's impressive for a standard box, I've got to uprate the internals on my MT75 because they turn to Swiss cheese at 350lbft apparently.

    Probably the best box Renault have built since the un1 !

    Shame the engine rods are made of cheese.
