  1. The Cup cars are so much more than the sum of their parts. Gary kindly took me out in his a while ago, whilst I also drove a selection of V6’s, 350’s and a 380. The original V6 Cup’s are raw, intimate cars to drive and extract the best from. The fact that, along with the 360’s, are the last motorsport cars adds kudos, if little or no more value. I bought one almost 2 years ago, and really do enjoy it. Whilst a standard V6 is cheaper, retro fitting the cup’s set up will cost a lot of money. With the espxception of the 360 currently for sale, and the freak £41,995 pewter Cup, I’ve not seen many other cup cars for sale. Stick a 380 exhaust on one, and they sound epic
  2. Ad08r’s for me as a well priced, but highly effective tyre for all-round use.
  3. I’ve got one of these ready to fit too, as my V6 Cup Lotus baffled sumo is also leaking. It’s been refitted once but has started weeping again. seems like a nice piece of kit.
  4. Turns out that I needed a female torx socket to remove. Used to do doing discs and pads, but the type of socket required was stumping me.
  5. I was wondering if anyone can help me. I need to change my front discs and need to know what type of attachment I need to remove it. The Deroure website simply says lobe had, but when I search for this, it doesn’t give me the correct type of tool to remove it using a torque wrench. Help mich appreciated! Rich
  6. Is that Farook’s car with H111 upgrades? If so first cup car I drove and led me to buy my cup car. They certainly are different to a standard car. Enjoy!
  7. 54ltr tank good for me too, although fortunately it came with the car! There's one for sale on the playground (60ltr one), although not sure if it fits a V6
  8. Gary, Did you confirm it was this in the end?
  9. Great feedback as always! sounds a bit like a Honda conversion, and I mean that in terms of more vibration at idle and a more raw feeling. So get hung I don’t mind!
  10. Chateau any good? A group of us us are staying there soon, so some feedback would be good
  11. I run 10 from full hard rebound and 4 from hard compression front. Rear is 9 from full hard rebound and again 4 from hard compression. I find it to be a great set up for road, but I do prefer the car to be set up quite hard.
  12. I purposely went for a V6 Cup. I did test drive a 350, and it just didn't excite like the Cups do. I driven 2 and now own one of them because the the rawness, and all the additional bits they have over standard car. I've added a 2bular tweaked the suspension to my liking. It also has a second set of forged alloys for extra lightness. with no sound deadening, a louder exhaust and all the Cup bits, it really is very special. I've seen V666Cup for sale, and it looks ok. Mileage is good, and with the 410 kit it will breath better. They only made around 120 Cup cars, but you state you're not fussed by that. Perhaps an earlier V6 and then modify. All depends on what kind of experience you want.
  13. If you started with one of the lightest of the lot, being a V6 Cup, then you'd have a very good base car
