2006-2009 Renault Mégane II Renault Sport 230 F1 Team R26 # 1,113 (Renault/Nissan C Platform), the French Focus ST. In 1976 Renault combined their Alpine & Gordini divisions together to create Renault Sport, a performance division that would create race car's like the new RS01 Formula 1 car in 1977 (first turbo car in F1 ever) as the brand entered Formula 1 that year. In 2004 the Renault Sport division started working on the Mégane to create the RS 225, in 2005 Renault driver Fernando Alonso won the drivers title and Renault won their first Constructors Championship and to celebrate that win, RS created the Mégane 230 F1 Team R26. The RS had a improved Cup Chassis with stiffer steering, springs, dampers, thicker sway bars and Michelin Pilot Sport 2 235/40R18 tires for handling. You also got a LSD, 12.2in (312mm) front & 11.8in (300mm) rear Brembo brakes and Recaro seats to help the car & driver out on twisting roads. Power was the turbocharged 122ci (2.0l) F4Rt I4 making 227hp (230ps,169kw) @ 5,500rpm & 230lbft (310nm,31.7kg-m) @ 3,000rpm mated to a 6-speed manual that allowed this 2,987lb (1,355kg) carver to get 20.5mpg (11.5l/100km) city & 33.6mpg (7.0l/100km) highway. Around 3,652 F1 R26's were made and that credit card sized box is the ignition key that slides into a slot in the dash to start the car, weird. Too bad Renault never sold car's in North America, only reason why this car is legally in the states is because a museum ownes it and I'll probably see this car Lane Motor Museum when I visit next month. I think we would've enjoyed car's like this in the States given how America loves the Golf GTI & Focus ST/RS. #renault#renaultsportmegane230f1teameditionr26#renaultmegane#renaultsport#renaultsportmegane#megane#megane2rs#renaultsportf1#renaultnissan#renaultf1team#f4rt#2point0#2point0turbo#renaultclub#fordfocusst#focusst#drivingmatters#formula1#straightouttafrance#hothatch#hothatchsociety#importalliance2018#importallianceatl#importallianceatlanta
Timing chain tensioner failed in a CPPA Gen3 TSI.
Due to the amount of metal found in the system we put another engine with lower miles in.
