  1. Had a good look over Essex #006 yesterday. Very, very clean! Also interesting belt tensioner mods, superbly executed, but may return it to original to refit aircon .

  2. This post was approved by @Bibs before anyone asks Good evening everyone, I've recently started a reverse engineering business focused around faithful reproduction of legacy autoparts, called Novorota. With the help of some incredibly kind people on this forum we've managed to get our first products into production, this is an incredible community! We would like to offer you our billet machined rear hub carriers for S1/S2/S2.2 and S4/V8 models. The hubs will be made out of Aluminum 6061-T6. We took incredibly detailed 3D scans of C082D4142K and F079D4001F parts and recreated t

  4. The S350 and red race are not identical apart from 1st gear. The red race full transient boost in all gears - no restrictions. The S350 still has some boost limitation, although allowing higher boost than in lower gears than the stock ECU. Here you can see the differences and also the reason for the warning. The last graph is the red race ECU.

  7. @Gordon S and I managed to get out to Silverstone on Monday, we were blessed with good weather, and I managed to achieve better performance with the new setup. Very happy and for sure the new wing really does make the car can't stop looking at the rear lol

  8. The difference is that the 360 Stradale and Challenge Cup cars were designed to be able to cope with the additional power. You are flirting with the idea of challenging your stock transmission to see if it breaks!! You should probably read that back to yourself in order to guide your decision.

  9. Disagree, but we rarely see eye to eye on the details. Obama will be remembered with fondness especially compared to the Trump years which will be seen as ushering out the last of America's integrity and any remaining moral authority we might have had. As has been mentioned, Trump's economy, the thing he claims for himself, rides on the back of Obama's successes. These days it's a major achievement to leave office with the respect of the people that voted you in. Obama achieved that. Who in Europe will achieve that today? Will Boris? Well, by one measure GB is not really Europe anymore

  10. yes indeed @Bazza 907 I had to re-read that myself. Perhaps he could get some mechanicals done for that price. @LOTUSMAN33 I dare say it wont be leaving for a while! I don't think any sized cheque will stop it leaving eventually though.. I'm sure @Bazza 907understands.

  11. I'd forgotten about this thread, but this am I decided to hose down the Evora before putting it away in the barn. Mrs Bruss remarked how good the car looked and I said something about all the girls say so, it's my chick magnet etc. Two minutes later out new post girl pulled up and got out of the van with a broad smile and exclaimed it's a Lootus (French) and drooled all over it . Mrs Bruss pretended not to notice.

  12. Now its well known on this forum that my other half detests the Evora and in my 2-3 yr of ownership we have one major weekend trip and about a half dozen short trips to shops however last Sunday went to B&Q so I had to drive Evora and knew it was going to be uncomfortable journey with all the screams and moans that I was going to get as I drove too noisy and too fast (ie 50mph) on dual carriageway I was shocked to hear her pointing out as we pulled into a Aldi car park that she saw a dad with his young son in pushchair almost fall over with excitement as we drove past them.

  13. Hi Guys, My S1 is currently in the paint shop being prepared for paint. The guys there have installed the front light pods and bonnet and the gap at the front edge of the bonnet seems a bit too big. There doesn't seem to be a way around it though, if we make the gap any smaller it will hit when it opens. Does this look fairly normal for a single headlight S1 ?

I thought it was maybe the one mentioned above currently on eBay.....but it’s not, and as we know now it’s a Wet Sump. I made enquiries about the one below when it was for sale, but not heard or seen anything about it since. Anyone else know the car?

  24. It will be easier the other way round with only the wire to pull through the chassis, without the clevis/bellows etc: Fasten some wire to the circular hole on the cable end ferrule at the handbrake lever end and as you pull the old cable out backwards the wire will pull through with it. You can then fasten the forward end of the new cable back to the wire and pull it through. Keep the wire attached until you have fastened the diff end of the cable in position. The stiffer the wire you use the better - it will help stop the new cable "drooping" between each cassis reinforcing plate. If you

  27. The flight time on the Mini is more than on my I2, it's much lighter so size doesn't correlate to flight time. They are small though in terms of motors. While I've seen over 80mph from the I2 (with a tail wind, max speed in still air is just under 60mph), you'll struggle to see over 25mph on the Mini as the motors and props are much smaller. This does have an effect on wind resistance and if there's a strong breeze, you could find your Mini going backwards rather than forwards when trying to get it back - always fly upwind first!

  29. Thanks for the replies all. Peegee355 sent you a PM. au-ty. Quite a few about sub £50k if you are willing to do a deal it seems. Spoke to a dealer who has one up for £46k and would be willing to do a deal at £44k with a fresh lotus service as sat for a bit but not ideal colour combo for me. Another who has had the same 410 for sale for close to 2 years and willing to drop £5k. I looked at it but was put off buy it being sat for 2 years. I think if I was getting really close to the £50's I would plump the he extra £10-£15k to get into a 410 sport as the budget is flexible and win

  30. I am genuinely shocked this has been removed! A calm educated discussion and its removed for violating terms! Not being able to question the mainstream narrative doesn't help anyone. Shutting down discussion makes me wonder why? Truth doesn't need defending. Arguments for and against are all valid. Im guessing your daughter has given you insights which maybe opposed to my own thoughts but I for sure would like to hear them. I am a cynical bugger but am happy to concede if I know im in the wrong. Its how our society should work. At the moment the vid is still up on bitchute.

  32. Posted this on another forum but it's worth posting here in these troubled times. I'd must like to report that I drove the Evora yesterday and loved it. Dark thoughts with Covid an' all have stopped me using the Evora as intended and it has sat in the barn for the best part of 2 years, and I've been thinking of selling it. The BMW had to go in for some work and yesterday I took Mrs Bruss 20 miles to drop her off and pick it up. On the way back I properly drove the Evora. Summary is Local town with the worst road surface I've encountered outside of Belgium, makes the

  33. I used to own this lotus some years ago, I found it in a garage near Mersey island and brought it home to Cambridge and did some work on it to get it running and I used it as my wedding car the wheels are very rare as I found out when I had an issue with them but they are correct for the year. And I managed to put the original number plate back on it had a private plate and the original is close to the lotus in the bond film.

  36. Well Obama's administration did help the US economy recover from its worst recession in almost 80 years. Under Trump it continued to recover at only the same rate despite Trump taking the credit. Obama's administration introduced the affordable care act allowing millions to access health care that hitherto would have been denied them. He took steps with the Dream act to address the plight of illegal immigrants in the US. It reduced the defecit. It saw the legalisation of same-sex marriage and allowed homosexuals to be acknowledged in the armed forces. Osama bin Laden was killed under his

  37. Over the last 7 years we have fostered 4 refugees. 3 told the imigration officers at their substantive interview the same story almost word for word ( I had to sit in and listen as the adult). 2 were under 16 just 2 were very much over 16 and confirmed it to us once their time in foster care was over. One I have "supported" through ( since he left us) 2x no insurance on scooters, one assault on a friend, one criminal damage, one assault of an out of uniform police officer, with the latest 3rd no insurance and assault I cut him free to deal with by himself. They all have very dif

  38. I'm sure many of you know what I do part time. Just recently I had an experience that changed my mind a little on this subject. We were called to a truck with "Movement" being heard in the back, by the driver. On opening it up we found 6 illegals who had sneaked into it maybe at a truck stop he parked at overnight before crossing the channel. 5 of them were young African men, of course they all said they were under 18 didn't have any ID etc etc. Normal situation. However one was a early middle aged woman who I dealt with because I was the only one with a female crew partner.

  41. This covid isolation period has resulted in a heap of jobs done round the house, loads of stuff work related completely avoided and plenty of alcohol drunk. Yesterday I started having a bit of a clear up and sort out - one huge bonfire lit. This morning it carried on and through most of the day - it’s incredible just how much stuff was stacked and piled here and there. The newly sowed grass had its first hard cut - I will reseed it a bit more - it’s not the best time of year but I’ll whack some more on anyway. my buddy is lined up to do a load more post and rail fencing which will de
