  1. Unlikely until the trickle charger has had a chance to put some volts back into it. They're low current so won't provide power to turn the car over. Perhaps a lipo jump pack in the boot might be a good idea? https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/92728/best-mini-jump-starter-packs-2019
  2. That was bought in on the excuse it would redistribute wealth. To the government, yes but to the common man, haha!!
  3. BMW are taking BEV's seriously, they've pre-sold a huge amount of Mini's. Current trend is for electric cars now to be much more like their ICE counterparts rather than the quirky looking iterations to date. VW/Vauxhall/Pug are all doing the same too.
  4. Sorry to say he passed away in August 2018. He was very much liked within the Lotus community, a wonderful, fun character and is sorely missed.
  5. It most certainly has. I'm sure we'll hear more about them once they're done, but understandably, Lotus aren't releasing building site shots.
  6. I think all lights on the rear of the car need to be red, apart from reverse of course.
  7. They'll probably use gamma rays #cuttingedge
  8. They engineered the hydrogen powered taxis for the Olympics. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-10836132
  9. Wonder what price Carwow will get them for!
  10. Nice to see the new venture going well
  11. Just about to tick through 34k.
  12. When you say Lotus, do you mean a dealership and if so, which one? That isn't right, and sounds dangerous. If you can please let me know, I'll see what I can do to help.
  13. A google search for 'poor brakes in wet' returns 7.2m results. https://www.google.co.uk/search?client=opera&q=poor+brakes+in+wet&sourceid=opera&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 AP make some of the best brakes in the world, and Lotus cars are usually overbraked as Justin noted above. I seem to remember that they aim for deceleration at better than twice the rate of acceleration, so the 60-0 is less than half of the 0-60.
  14. What do they think it is, atrial fibrillation? Might be worth investing in an Apple Watch, they have very advanced heart rate tracking nowadays. https://www.wareable.com/apple/apple-watch-heart-rate-monitor-guide-340
  15. Sorry Nicola, I was out all day yesterday on a trip to Silverstone to get the Evora serviced. Fixed now :)
  16. I see them most gearchanges! The Evora really has a nice bit of extra poke after 4.5k, give it some beans!
  17. Similar here on the Evora... https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/107612-break-pedal-feel/ After most fords (the water crossings, not the cars) there's a sign saying 'Check Your Brakes', water affects all cars, not just Lotus.
  18. How did you make payment please mate? I'll look into it.
