  1. Past hour
  2. Ditto....about a 1/4 mile to the next dwelling
  3. What pissed me off last week was going to my Son's school, and meeting one of my son's mate's Dad who happens to be a Director at Aston Martin. I mentioned Lotus of course and he said in a rather smug way that there had been no orders for the Lotus Evija. I'm guessing Lotus joining a big player like Geely is a threat to Aston? Anyway, I hope the news is not true.
  4. we have placed double sided on mine for 6 months, and even after several washes it still holds.
  5. https://www.bellandcolvill.co.uk/approved-used/lotus-evora-400_yo65-chd This has been around for a long time, wonder why it hasn't sold? https://www.snows.co.uk/lotus/used-cars/10135192-lotus-evora-v6-sports-racer-4 The S1SR N/A is also still for sale at snows for £37k
  6. A speedo recon is cheap. And who needs an aircon in the UK, just wind the window down. Not much wrong with that.
  7. I’m not daft - only the once - and next time I’ll keep it simple and rent by the hour
  8. Not that DB5 again (yawn)! Where's a bloody Lotus?!
  9. Upping the performance of the engine puts more stress on the gearbox which is not known for its strength.
  10. Today
  11. Well it seems the Esprit is ever popular.. 100 watchers, and over a thousand views in just 24 hours. But how many of those watchers are owners trying to gauge the market? C’mon, ‘fess up @Barrykearley..how many times did you say you’d been married?
  12. What is the thread pitch and the current size across the flats Mike? I've made brass nuts in the past with smaller "AF" dimensions, as suggested by Andy. Happy to help if I can - still got my lathe! Pete
  13. Lotusbits, if they have one £150 - no brainer
  14. Good spot. That looks great. I’d be up for one. Group buy?
  15. I am still working on the car. Ive had a bit of a break. Now having watched For Your Eyes Only again I have the motivation to finish it! Decals are being made for the 360 Tyrolia bindings. I have to spray them to the correct Orange colour. Then attach them to the skis. I have made two styrofoam racks so far. One is covered in Epoxy ready for sanding. I need to replace the two rear springs with new ones, paint the rear engine bay matt black then secure the louvres. In order to save some time Im going to take the car to a Lotus specialist for suspension alignment. I did this all myself on the S1, but I now need to save some time.
  16. Have you tried SWLC? they have remanufactured the LC one, but not sure about HC status Phil strongly advised against welding due to concentration of impurities in a cracked/holed manifold preventing a good repair.
  17. You could try that, but the tricky bit is connecting the fuse boxes with a fixed glove box. Also its far easier to bolt the dash on without the glove box in.
  18. That seems a lot! A friend had an Inconel 6 cylinder manifold repaired for less
  19. How much is a custom one? The 907/912 manifold looks small and simple - someone must offer something? Given demand for manifolds due to the casting cracking, if have thought there was good demand.
  20. For me the price for the smartycam is complicated to justify when you compare the image quality with a gopro. At this price I prefer to make the overlay myself with RaceRender.
  21. They're certainly aware of it from their vehicle protocol file for the Solo2DL. They specifically list ECU Channel 29 (LTC 5 Step) and Channel 30 (LTC 10 Step) as channels that can be displayed on the Solo2DL. Whether this dash will have a readout covering those channels depending on model selection, they'll have to confirm. You'll at least have to select your model to get the correct fuel gauge reading, that's for sure. Regarding gear position, the ECU Channel 2 that outputs Gear position is only applicable to Automatic vehicles, I've not seen any other way in the Solo product for it to display (i.e a user input based on ratio). I'll have to read your notes again, @geartox
  22. And I'd be flushing backwards against the flow direction when running.
  23. Hi Don My Eclat is Black and looks like a JPS although Lotus never did one officially did one for this model. Ibought it a few years ago from David Rowett and have slowly been getting various jobs done. I got it back on the road this summer and have been using it regularly over the summer and on the odd sunny dry day in the Autumn. Will take some picture over the weekend and post them up . Thanks Mike
  24. gear selection works fine with math channel precalgear , as I explained in another thread. This MX2E is maybe the solution that we wait for.
  25. I agree, flush everyting through thoroughly to clear any debris that may be present........
