    Default For the Renault 15/17 Fans

    Not sure if there is a thread for the appreciation of the R15 & R17's. But here goes.

    I'll kick it off with a youtube video of some horny R15 & R17.

    There are a few here that would know this group in France which has a Facebook page called Renault 15 17 notre passion

    Wow, 80MPH, that's impressive.
    A 12 is usually a frag under 20MPH per 1000RPM in top (on a flat road with standard wheels).
    That would be only about a bit over 4000RPM so there would have be a bit more to be had yet.
    If it didn't self-destruct or deafen the driver.

    <"Thread hijack">

    yeah yeah but you cheated with like, a proper one.

    And for what it's worth, it wasn't very noisy / or vibrated to much or what it feels like at 60mph. I was disappointed I couldn't get it to the ton. But now that the timing is actually a little more correct, I might make the clock show 90

    That was with it full of gear when I moved it to Sydney a couple of months back. Actually thinking about it the front end was very light haha.

    </"Thread hijack>

    Now let me scroll up and admire that mint 17 once more.

    How many in the car when you "allegedly" did this?

    WE only got to 15kph, but had many more people, so 16 less people, with only a driver gives a potential 250kph

    Those old Reno's were fast

    2 of us with a full fuel tank with 90 litres of Avgas and 5 jerry cans full of avgas strapped to the roll bar (no rear seat in a rally car) Would have made a hell of a mess if we hit anything.

    I remember sitting on the side of the road when the cops stopped us with raw avgas dripping and the exhaust as it was trying to idle. It was bloody lucky no one smoked.

    Maybe there is something to a nice paint job...

    Excellent site. I didn't think the prices were too bad either. Pity about the cost of postage from France.

    Ditto that, getting anything out of Europe is costly.
