Although not necessarily an exhaustive list, the following tools and materials, supplied by Easy Composites, were used in this project.
The quantity shown below is the approximate amount used in the project rounded up to the nearest available kit size or quantity.
Ilya of RuskiWeldFab wanted to enter TIme Attack so bought a Renault Clio 172 for £400 from eBay to make the basis of the Race Car. He then set about building the fastest Clio 172 in the UK and filming it for his YouTube channel.
Competing in Time Attack in Club Pro 2WD class. 99% of the work was done by himself in the shed. Running the original F4R engine that has been turbocharged, the car now features 430 Bhp and weighs only 980kg.
To achieve this weight and offset the weight of the heavy roll cage and turbocharger, most of the original panels have been replaced with home made Carbon Kevlar panels. These were made by Resin Infusion for weight saving and performance reasons.
The panels made so far include, the roof, bonnet, front and rear bumpers, front and rear wings, splitter, rear diffuser, boot panel, air intake, fuel tank enclosure and flat under floor. Next on the list to produce are Carbon Kevlar doors and rear boot hatch.
RuskiWeldFab is the home of the fastest self-build Renault Clio 172 Race Car. Ilya does the vast majority of the work himself and has a mantra of 'built not bought' in his approach to modifying his race car.
RuskiWeldFab has his own YouTube Channel where he features videos on his fabrication work on this car and other projects as well as other topics.
