  5. So, seeing as I swapped my Evora 400 for an Elise Cup 220 a couple of weeks back I though I'd summarise my observations to date: Presence / Sound: The Elise get's less attention (despite being yellow). It still gets attention... but not quite the same 'supercar' response which the Evora generated. Prob helped along a little by the aero on the cup 220 TBH. I miss the sound of the Evora engine and the pops and crackles from the exhaust (how can I get that back!?). The Elise (fitted with a 2Bular exhaust) has more of a drone and some subtle noises on change down but it's not the same (still

  6. From Evora 400 to facelift 250 cup here. Overall, I think I'd agree with your conclusions. Presence and noise - the 4 cylinder Elise is never going to match the fantastic noise of the 6 cylinder 400, but with the latest version Lotus have made a real effort with the exhaust sound and I'm impressed with the sound it makes in my 250 Cup. Added benefit, you don't get kicked off track days Agree that the Evora gets more attention, I think people are more familiar with the Elise and know what it is. Performance - 0-60 is almost identical, but from there on the Evora has a significa

  8. Good question. I have spent some time to sort this out for myself and posted some thoughts in the TVS1900 thread, since it was brought up there as a side topic. KT - I called them - and as @Bravo73 says, they cannot offer a bespoke map. Either you buy their stuff (which for sure is one of the best), or you don't. Well, if you go there, you may probably be able to map the car with any hardware configuration. Since I had the 2Bular manifold, race-cat + Lotus Motorsport silencer paired with a BOE cold air intake, I was off the map so to say. The only other options I found was BOE and I

  9. Another season of sprinting at an end. Here's a lap from Anglesey, I've solved my under steer problem, maybe a bit too well, it's a busy lap.

  10. Not a bad result given the age of the car's platform and the engine etc. I would say 8th place is a pretty good result. Also, the review on Pistonheads that pitched the Exige 410Sport to the GT3RS painted a very favourable light on the 410Sport. Yes, the GT3RS won and I can understand why, but there was a lot of love in the review for Hethel, Lotus and the analog nature of the 410Sport Exige and the price tag, of +100% difference was mentioned more than enough to make the point what value the Lotus was. I have detected a shift this year in some of the reviews where the Lotus product

  11. You’re right about many things. The Elise and Evora are just very different propositions. I miss the noise of the 400, I don’t miss the fuel bills

  14. Winter tyres are also ready to go onto the car! The big question is which car I use to get my Christmas tree this year... Maybe the Speedster?

  15. Hi, It has taken a few weeks to get to this point but the deal is done on this fully loaded 380 Sport. I find this car irresistible. I will let the pictures do the talking. I can't wait to finally get it home. Thank you for all the support I have received along the way. Special mention to Chris at Hoffman's, great advice and service received. Dan

  16. Hi Guys What guidance can anyone give in getting a supercharged v6 remapped with just induction and manifolds added? Im learning that manifolds alone the ECU can learn but add the induction and you have problems. I’m trying to free up any restrictions end to end so keen to do the induction in addition to manifolds. Hence the question who has done such a thing and what did you do ref re-map. Thanks in advance.

  19. From my 4 years of V6 Exige ownership, including quite a few Trackdays, I certainly agree it is hard work on track but, for me anyway, I always felt it was quite rewarding. On a full day, I rarely managed to get much beyond mid afternoon before becoming too knackered and having to call it a day. Having said that though, the Exige was always huge fun and although I am not the quickest driver, by any means, I rarely found it wanting for much on the days I did in it. I love my Evora 410 but I’d love to be in a position to have my old V6 Exige alongside it, just for track days.

  22. Don’t be too alarmed by it Dan, at sometime I think everyone has a Lotus boot problem. I had a warranty upgrade on my Release lever and had the pin realigned and cable eased off. Mine failed as yours did on the drive home and I broke the lever. This is worth having done and I am sure Hofmannns would be happy to do. Good luck

  25. The flat style (modern) wiper blade is much better than the older metal framed type. It looks a bit chunkier, but it works so much better than the original. I think it's a Bosch blade that was fitted to my car.

  26. Nice Tocus - I think that one comes from Japan in a white box? Sure I have seen them before but cannot remember the make. The AutoArt Essex models seem to fetch good money now. That 88 Image was another pre-season launch photo taken in the grounds at Ketteringham Hall. I loved that place and the fact they launched that seasons car there.

  33. I stumbled across V6 Cup #59 during a recent window shopping session online. Previously a German registered road car, converted by Van der Kooi in the Netherlands with new clams and CupR aerokit, Komo EX460 kit and Kobra brake kit, 3-way Nitrons, rollcage and most notably, a KAPS sequential transmission. This one should be a weapon as the Youtube vid highlights..though its history does make me wonder if it was perhaps a resurrection of the white German Cup that ended up on its roof on circuit (merely speculation sorry) https://racecarsdirect.com/Advert/Details/96361/lotus-exige-v6-c

  39. We do...a small business born by accident and through Esprit ownership and TLF membership, the wife and I both skilled in different trades work together in a little shed at the bottom of the garden most evenings now to produce these carpet sets for most Esprit models. Our latest addition, the allusive Turbo Esprit battery cover which we now make from ABS plastic to replace those cardboard covers that have dissolved over the years.
