My Super Coupe Cup R5T
« on: 09:40, Thu 23 August 2007 »
This is my R5T Super Coupe Cup racer which I sprint. (I love this car!!)

It's one of the  very last Renault 5 Cup Cars to be built by Renault Motorsport for the Renault 5 Elf Cup Series, this 1.4 Turbo race car went on to compete in the Coupe Cup & then the Super Coupe Cup. The car also competed in Renault Motorsports 30th Anniversary Meeting in the Renault 5 Celebration Race at Thruxton in 2004 where the car finished 12th out of 26 5's.

It has also appeared in and was on the front cover of Retro Cars December 2005 edition.

The car has been developed for competing in sprints with the addition of several performance parts from the original Cup spec as below but will be changing soon as engine blew at last sprint at Silverstone. (Cracked Liner)

Cup Spec plus the following:

Turbo Dynamics T25 Hybrid Turbo
Forge Front Mount Intercooler
K-Tec Side Exit Exhaust with 2.5 turbo elbow and downpipe.
Group A Dump Valve
Cup Spec Oil Cooler
Samco & Race Spec Hoses
GT Tuning gas flowed lobster back Carb top

Very nice car.

I have a question about cup suspension.. ..what are the setting on suspension (geometry)? How much camber, castor etc?

Cheers - Theres a lot I need to do to it to make it perfect!!'

I'm not sure at present but should be able to my grubby hands on friends tracking equipment so will find out. But the front has 'loads' of camber!!  (It has camber correcting brackets fitted) and the rear I think is 0 degrees.

Yeah already been racing pictures where taken at Goodwood earlier this year.. (Came 2nd In Class and 14th overall out of 100 entrants!!)

The wheels are origional coupe cup steels so a bit reluctant to change them. But may do later on when I have the spare cash.

Is it expensive to compeat in the class you're in or do you just do the odd day ?
Really interested in doing some track days as i have a full FIA cage already fitted.

Events usually range from 70 - 150 check out the All Circuit Championship. Covers Goodwood Lydden Pembrey Silverstone (Stowe) and Brand Hatch. (and you get a trophy is you're good enough.. :wink:  )

Other than that it's track days which are good vaule for money if you're an occasional nutter!!
