Not much is needed to make them handle extreamly well.
I'd stay away from v max coilovers, I've got them on my 182 & they are way too harsh with not enough rebound, you would be much better off going for standard cup dampers with cooksport springs. Work excellent on track.
15s are a must for track, the car will feel much more planted round corners. Keep things simple & enjoy

I'm glad I'm not alone on here with my Clio. I read up on them last night and had mixed reviews, I think I will stay away from them. Ill have a look round for the a second hand set of the cup dampers, or I might stretch to a set of BC's as they look pretty good and Bob rates them.
I'm looking at some 15" OZ suppaleggas or F1's but not sure what a good price is for them. around £400 for a good set or £250 - £300 for a half decent set seems about average. Ive just ordered some polybushes and currently bidding on a decat pipe so soon enough I should be back on a track giving the car some abuse.
I like the motto, keep things simple and enjoy, pretty much sums up my plans for the car, until I see something shiny that is.

Bcs are a good choice, you can pick spring rates with them too. Other ones that are worth looking into are bilstein & Gaz. Both come highly recommended. If money is no object ast coilovers is the way to go.
Oz f1s are a nice wheel. Around £300 to £350 seems the going rate just be careful they are all true as they buckle extreamly easy.
Speedline 2118s are slightly stronger wheels that lots use for track work on the clios
They are awesome track cars & do come into there own through the twistys

I looked at the ast's, they are too much for a cheap track car. Blisteins are affordable and Gaz golds at a push.
I like the speedlines but they are around £750 so I will probably go for something cheaper for now, cheers for the advice on the F1's, i'll keep an eye out.

we may be able to sort something out with the Volks rims if you like them that is!
they are extremely light weight plus they already have boots on them too, also good clearance if you ever want a brake upgrade
2 of the little centre caps are missing but not dear to buy some others from ebay or I may have some wheel hub centres kicking about.

like james said I would steer clear of the vmax an d just go for upgraded springs, think we have a top mount prob on one of the dampers and I know one has leaked in past so worth seeing if you can pick up a set in good nick unless you can stretch to the coilovers which we will not be beaten on price with (around £60-100 cheaper than anywhere else on the net)

il reply to email tomorrow tim giving a date when I can get her in Wink

No worries Tim. Might be worth signing up to cliosport.net & the Facebook group, lots of hits come up forsale on there.

Just been having another read up, I definatly want coilovers, its got to be gaz gold or BC. Suspension is important on a low powered car that good in corners so I may as well do it properly. Let me know what you can get BC's for, I will probably go for them.
I thought the Volks rims were dannys or did I miss a joke at some point? If they are going and I can afford them then I will have them, I prefer them over the OZ ones.

Cliosport.net is pretty good, already ordered the wishbone and ARB polybushes from there. Just ordering the rear shock and steering rack ones now.

Should I get the dog bone engine mount and rear beam polybushes?

Good to see you join up! Saw a lot of clios about at Bedford for the GTIROC track day a few years ago they were quick cars and took my VXR out very easily!

So you are another non Nissan owner, there's more of us than I thought Very Happy

Haha yeah well 30 mins in a Pulsar the whole day at Bedford cost me upwards of 500 notes with maintenance and the other half was like wtf that was just a 1 day event and I thought the same, so tend to drive on the B and back roads
