Neither have I, it's a rare beast. I've checked out 3 firms over here that do chiptuning, and only 1 had this model in their list, that's how rare it is! Have you chipped it yet, and checked how much power/torque the other components (clutch, diff, gearbox) can handle? It could prove to be too costly in the long run.

Cheers fellas. They are rare yes, only around 300 in the UK were bought and still around that same number today. From what i've read the clutch is the weak point but if you stay sub 250 brake you're all good. It's not been remapped yet, funds have been channeled into the Le Mans 24 Hours drinking fund ; )

Doubt you feel the need for more power often it is a powerful car as it is.

I haven't done my research, for obvious reasons (I didn't even know the car exists 'till yesterday), so I'll believe yours. I just don't personally believe in Renault clutches too much. But man, I do believe in RS!
