  1. Very early dry sump SOLD at French Auction
  2. Saddo alert!

    Antenna on drivers side ! Neil
  3. Power demands of additional items

    For the Delco A/C system 8hp, and this is not compensated at idle. Power steering a lot less for sure, but how much ? Neil
  4. Double wings

    Esprits have had many different wing designs and positions, same with the Elise Exige range. Only poor aero design need wings ! None of Chapman's road cars had wings. possibly explains the popularity of S1 and S2 Esprit. Simplicate and remove the wing. Neil
  5. Elite/Eclat and Excel wheels are interchangeable. Also Eclats, and later Elite do carry the spare wheel onboard, as opposed to under the car, so the mod should work. Tyres and rim sizes do differ. (14 to 15 inch, and 205 to 215) Neil
  6. Evora GT430

    For Sale
  7. Evora GT430

    Convertible / drop head ?
  8. New car today! Exige 350

    In Lotus Fashion, looks like they made Union Jack's for the left hand side of the wing only, and not the right hand side. Very much like the Esprit wheels in the 80's, same rims fitted on both sides !!! Neil.

  13. VIN - production date an specs
  14. Propshaft balancing

    Had mine balanced many years ago. This does reduce vibration at certain speeds that give resonnance (about 130 km/h in an Eclat) Not that expensive as I remember, but as you say, "it seem crazy not to do everything while the shaft is out." The old road tests also suggest the driveline was difficult to balance on these cars. Good Luck Neil
