  1. On the bright side at least the smaller engine will be easier to get back in. Might not even need that tractor...

  2. @Jokke Vlo: As always, great driving Jokke. I just love your videos. Just a couple comments/recommendations about the Aim SmartyCam template which I'm assuming is tied into your ECU via an OBD bridge connected to an Aim SoloDL: In order of importance and benefit (perhaps) to you of viewing your videos , I'd change the following: 1) get the throttle bar activated -- the channel and SmartyCam function just need to be sync'ed; 2) add "gear" to the template -- just a simple calibration; 3) change the lap time display to the one which will show and keep your "best lap"

  3. I like this kind of open discussion, so go ahead Handling days: I do several of thes every year. Drifting an Exige wit or without LSD is working ok. I am an amateur racer, so not a pro, I don't say truth is here, but I like to go a little deeper on that slide "strategy". So my opinion is not a pro one, but the one of a passionate driver. You are, imo, not totally wrong, but it will be about the right input and, most important, the big difference between the standard open diff or an lsd. With an LSD it is "easier" to stay on throttle as you will have much quicker and better

  4. I thought I would start this. It's a bit like the 'What made you happy today?' topic, but a bit more specific. I know there are others on here have had their own scares. I think we need to let people know that you can win. This is not a 'Look at me.' sob topic. I'll start. Nearly 3 years ago I had a lateral medullary stroke as most people on here are aware. If it had been 10cm further up the artery from where it had occurred, I would have had the same injury as Phillip Hughes the cricketer and would have died within about 30 seconds. Just about to get the paper on the toilet, so

  8. How fast round Spa in a GT 430 can Jonny go? Math can help give us an indication. Around Hethel a GT 430 is 4.66 % faster than a Exige sport 350(1m 25.8 v 1m 29.8). Jonny has "estimated" that the 350 has almost identical performance to his Exige Cup, so lets proceed on that basis, bearing in mind Hethel is not Spa and this is just statistical fun. Jonny has never dipped under 2m 50 at Spa...so lets speed up that lap time by 4.66%, and we get....2m 42. Fast enough as a target for you Jonny! Jim Clarke must have been driving that 2m 46 Evora S.....

  9. 65k seems a decent mileage, more likely to have been used than hidden away. Congrats on the sale Stephen hope it all works out. Bet you’ll be sad to see suchamiconic car go

  10. Yay got the car back yesterday after the work has been done, had new (S2) suspension, steering rack and wheel bearing done. Drives a lot better now, only a few more smaller things to get done but at least I can drive the car properly now. Hangar 111 were excellent and very helpful so would highly recommend them to any of you needing work done.

  12. @alias23 Randy dropped me a line re my enquiry and said thay had done one 380 conversion for a UK based car. He also said after some initial development there is now an off the shelf ECU flash for the 380. So I posted on here to see if the owner was on the forum to get some feedback from him. I have since asked Randy for more information, the rpm limit being one of those questions. Just waiting for him to get back to me (I messaged him over the weekend). TBH both kits look to be excellent and both have pro's and cons. Obviously the KT package gives you more HP and has an intercooler,

  14. Picked this up yesterday as stable mate for my Evora GTE. Yes, it's the family Ferrari. For those who aren't familiar, it's a 1991 Mondial T convertible, which was the last of the line of mid-engined 2+2 Ferraris. The T was also the first of the now-familiar series of V8 Ferraris with the longitudinal engine. It has the same 300bhp 3.4 litre engine that later went into the 348 and the 5 speed manual gearbox out back, with the dog-leg "upside-down" gear arrangement and classic open gate. There were only 53 cabrios made in RHD. This one's done 43500 miles and has a forensic f

  15. I owned X2 Exige Cup 260's, 2008 track spec. & 2010 road spec. Anyone thinking the 2017 Elise Cup 260 is comparable is misled. Here are some of the key Cup specs of my 2010 : Carbon Interior : The whole dash panel, gear change cover, sill covers & seats were carbon Carbon exterior : Splitter, rear wing, access panels, roof, side scoops, engine cover & top of the rear clam were carbon. The standard dedicated Cup paint scheme highlighted this too. Safety : T45 A frame, plumbed-in fire suppression installation, interior / exterior fire suppression & kill switches.

  17. A CAUTIONARY TALE OF V8 HEAD GASKETS ! Finally it turns out the aftermarket Head gaskets were total crap. My engine was rebuilt three times and finally blew up due to overheating. $30,000 later and installed a replacement used engine which I had replace the head gaskets again. I went with OEM head gaskets and finally its not overheating Very expensive lesson learned. Also JAE has discontinued selling the aftermarket head gaskets.
