  2. The Megane has the same (or similar) front suspension geometry as the FF touring cars of the early 90's. Works very well.
     
  3.  
  4. The Focus ST is barely faster than the Megane RS diesel.
     
  5. jezus, laat maar

  7. The Focus RS has 70 hp more...
     
  8. Yes and the ST has 50hp more than the diesel.
     
  9. The diesel has way more torques

    but also very optimistic claim by the manufacturer

    Horst von Saurma, sport auto magazine cheife editor and res
    osnible for the Super test at the Nordschleife already drove the R26.R and was 7 secs. slower (8:24 mins.) thanm that time in his first attemp, a superstest of the R26.R is to follow
     
  13. He did 8:24

    And he's being a total #%$got because he thinks that HE is the only one that is able to show what the car can really do.
     
  14. Btw I think the "normal" R26 weighs 1230kg. This one should weigh around 1110kg
     
  15. HvS did 8.38 min with the Megane Sport Trophy (225 hp), so he's 8.24 min time for the R26.R is still fantastic!
     
  16. me and my dad are trying to rent an R26 F1 for our trip out to the ring in a few weeks :D

     
  17. right!

    got that wrong because I added the 7 secs. to that 8:24 mins., fixed now
     
  18. you cant go on the ring with a rented car though.
     
  19. Cool
     
  20. You can with one of those. They have special insurance etc.
     
  21. Not so much because they'll hit the 'ring, but because an American's renting them.
     
  22. I'll take mine in daek grey with black/dark grey wheels.

    Cheers.
     
  23. orly? thats kind of cool.
