  2. Hope you don't mind Norbert - add comments on your thread as this is after thread... Day 2 - dry roads, dpm set to Race and full throttle application - WOW! This is just so bloody amazing and addictive - I am so loving this upgrade and falling in love with my car even more.... Can't wait for a hooning trip and or track day - hopefully both soon. Guys those of you who are undecided - don't wait do it, you will have no regret and you will be totally thrilled. This what the Exige cup should have been all about.

  5. So I grew up in Queens County, one of the five boroughs of NYC. Queens has given birth to the likes of The Ramones, Run-D.M.C., Frank Profera...and The Donald. When I was a kid, I played touch football in the park with John Leguizamo (another Queens boy). I can guarantee you that if The Donald had ever showed up Jackson Heights -- not only the most the most ethnically and sexually diverse neighborhood in Queens, but in the entire USA -- that we would have beat the living snot out of his whining punk ass. He's the most un-tough tough guy this place has ever produced and a complete poser.

  9. Hello All, Picked up my new Evora 400 last Saturday......so thought I would join and say hello. This is my first Lotus. Always wanted one, have come close a couple of times, but always walked into "German" showrooms instead. That was until I saw the Evora 400. I race Caterham's hence the username CaterhamPorky. Did the Caterham Academy in 2012 and have not stopped racing since. I got a second chance at life. Beat cancer & became a racing driver. 3rd in 2014 Caterham Tracksport Championship now in Supersports with DPR Motorsport. Next year is the big set to R300's.......so th

  11. Has anyone fitted their own exhaust? Ive fitted the Komotec tonight, but the vacuum line needed extending. Used anew bit of tube, but its not really up to it, and the exhaust wont switch over from open to closed. Seems strange it does not come with it

I remember watching that documentary with my old chum Bonzo...at one point at the Albert Hall concert, Dylan stopped playing...Bonzo said "He's going to tune his guitar!!!"...and, sure enough, he did....Bonzo shouting "I WAS THERE!!!! I WAS THERE!!!! In a BOX...." Nice to see the poet of our age so honoured.

  16. I don't have one myself but i was at an event a few weeks ago and a friend if mine had just had one installed. To be honest until he told me I didn't realise it wasn't stock so at least from the outside it's sounds similar to the stock exhaust. I was a but disappointed in the sound as having a truly switchable exhaust appealed to me but I was left underwhelmed by the sound.

  17. Glad to hear that. They are quite easy to clean with some general degreaser, the same stuff you use to prep the tyre wall before sticking them on. I eventually found that there was some kind of protective coating on them that yellowed slightly over time. I didn't realise it was on there but I peeled it off and the letters are even brighter white underneath. Not sure if the later batch I sent out has this or not but could be worth checking. Painting the letters white on original NCTs is such a palava I was very tempted to stick a set of these letters on some actual NCTs!

  19. As the former owner of the blue Turbo StTropez I still love the shape of them. Always gave me a good feeling entering the garage. Think I am on the "love them" side It is good to see this long time dissappeared car bouncing to the surface again. Rare birds these St Tropez convertibles. Only a good handful built. Has to be fun to own the only yellow one existing. As soon as you start the Rover V8 implemented engine with that fantastic gourgling sound it adds for sure to the unique appearance.

  20. Hi Jonathan! I spoke to Jamie at B&C at the Lotus Festival (end of August) about the 400 exhaust and sent an email last night. Will let you know when I hear more. Good to see your pics too, Miso very cute

  21. I've done about 3000 miles with the letters on and they are still as good as the day I fitted them. No issues whatsoever and the car looks so much better for having them. A big tick from me

  25. So time again to pay for the privilege of having fun on this forum, being able to slag Bibs off, having friendly banter with other like minded people and getting bucket loads of help and advice on projects and problems as well as sometimes being able to help out other's. Wouldn't miss it for anything, surely the best valued £20 I spend any year so more than happy with it. And still only £20. Bargain. Cheers Bibs for keeping a great forum going. Cant afford to go Gold though.

  27. Pm me when your ready, as at work but I can call later if you wanted. The exhaust was supposed to come with the extended vacuum line by the way, just they missed it out. Luckily Hangar 111 sent it down asap

  28. I was actually impressed with the quality, especially on the mirrors. Although the writing was a tad inappropriate ideally. They would have been fitted if I had a car to put them on

  32. I posted this up on facebook so for those who arent on there. A couple of weeks ago there was a race called the Yare Navigation race. It goes from Coldham Hall Sailing club on the out skirts of Norwich to Great Yarmouth and back again. Its approx 40 miles round trip. Race is for the broads cruisers. Have to be pre 1979 but most are about 1900 -1910. Some years it takes them all day to get out and back. This year the winners done it in under 4 hrs. I shot a bit of film and it was an impressive sight seeing these big old cruisers looking for all the world as if they were going to tip

  34. My car lives!!!! i am very pleased to report that I picked up my car this morning and all the issues have been resolved. To say I am very pleased would be an understatement but I would equally say that Greg at hanger111 is also very pleased. We were all in a tight corner and the car would not yield... Thru preservance Greg has managed to find the needle in the haystack that was causing the problems. Quick recap - issue was two fold a misfire on cold start pointing to an air leak and during road testing some slight hesitations. They chased, replaced, reviewed and resolved: -

  36. Far too much info too just quote spring rates.... We have tried various springs between 500 and 950 on the front and 700 and 1300 on the rear It also largely depends upon what you want / expect from the car, Lotus offer the car with 550/1100 springs on the Nitron kits. These are ok but in my opinion have there short comings on the road (rear) and on the track (front) Additionally there is a whole host of testing and adjustments we have made to damper lengths (overall and stroke) as well as changes to pistons, shim stacks and valves in the dampers for the V6.

  37. The Nissan was just not my type of car – it’s huge, heavy, ugly inside and out – that’s overstating it but I came from cars such as a 355, NSX, TVR etc and I’m not really a GT person. But . . . the allure of all that power was just something I couldn’t resist. Quite a few standard niggles with the GT-R such as body rust, wheel corrosion, squeaks, failing brackets, broken gearbox (!) so please don’t think that Lotus have all the issues. I really enjoyed the ownership though, it was useful to have all that space, upgrading to 600BHP and a loud exhaust was simple, there’s a real GT-R community

  43. is the 2.2 eclat worth more than a s1 eclat ? - Yes, quite a bit more. is the 2.2 eclat worth more tthan an early excel ? - Yes, although early narrow body excels are finally firming up in value, still a bit of a disparity though. a grand isn't a disaster - far from it. you could break it for more just from selling the transmission and scrap 912 for rebuild.. Interest in these cars is rising, and the S2's are the pick of the bunch. Expect to replace both door beams as they are likely to have all the structural rigidity of weetabix.

  45. The wheels look great and actually look "deeper dish" at the rear than the BBS wheels. So I see it now sits on a set of Pirellis Jonny.......is that the way it's staying? I wonder how it drives on those - I'm guessing it will be a harder ride........but I'm also guessing you'll have to wait until March to find out. Are the old Goodyears going onto the Gold set of wheels? Nice work!
