  1. I thought this was a healthy 8,700 rpm limit. lol
  2. Try the existing rear view mirror angled to give you a 45 degree view backwards out of the passenger side. Looks like you can approach the main road from your drive at 45 deg.
  3. For the 3-Eleven Green and Yellow colour scheme can anyone confirm the yellow colour code? The VIN plate only lists C203 which is Racing Green. I suspect the yellow is C204? From a brochure, these were the original colours: PAINT OPTIONS AVAILABLE Metallic/Signature Paint Black Pack Colour Scheme 1: Metallic Green/Metallic Yellow Stripes Colour Scheme 2: Metallic Black/Metallic Gold Stripes Colour Scheme 3: Metallic Red/ Metallic Gold Stripes Colour Scheme 4: Matt Black/Phantom Black Stripes I found this information for the 430 cars: Red C212 & Metallic Silver C190 with Metallic Black centre C186 Essex Blue C179 & Metallic Silver C190 with Metallic Black centre C186 Racing Green C203 & Yellow C204 with Metallic Black centre C186 Motorsport Black C152 & Gold C218 Ref:
  4. Sorry no pictures, it looked normal when stopped. Manthey fitted some improved spacers and bolting arrangement.
  5. Did you see any issues with the car at high speed? When at the Nurburgring we were seeing over 270kph on Döttinger Höhe, my friends 3-11 had a problem with the front splitter coming loose and dropping down (maybe as he was not running a front number plate) and cracks to the fairings around the roll bar. Splitter attachment was fixed at a local motorsport garage. My car was OK but as prevention taped over all the gaps in the roll bar fairing. My Oakley sunglasses only stable up to 240kph... 😎
  6. I've driven mine a fair bit on the road and it's much more civilised and rides better than my old 2-11. Think more Exige like... It's pretty friendly to drive on the PSS in all conditions and generally more than fast enough for any road use. Loads of torque so quite nice to short shift and cruise if required. The PSS are obviously a bit slower on a dry track than Cup 2 but mine have performed and lasted well. A worthwhile compromise if driving to/from the track. On road it's woolly hat and glasses unless it rains. Gloves a must in the cold, waterproof for rain. Heated 12V jacket really helps the comfort. Decent molded ear phones (ACS) with and without helmet paired with a Bluetooth dongle. I have the hard passenger tonneau cover which seems to reduce swirl into the cabin and keeps any luggage drier. Shower cape a must when parked. Note I've done a few trips to Knockhill, back and forth over Glenshee plus 3 Euro trips this year. Double header at Spa, trip to Zandvoort & Zolder with LoT then DN22 two days at Nurburgring.
  7. Also confused by that that track map Al (maybe from another event?), can't be anything other than the normal full lap and pit entrance/exit surely? I'll also be there in afternoon slot with the 3-Eleven. There should be about a dozen Lotus from SE in the afternoon plus a few in the evening. mail.jfif
  8. Anyone know if it's possible to upgrade the C127 dash to the logging option with GPS?
  9. As mentioned I was about to advertise properly this week at around £45k but open to offers. More details here:
  10. Open that can of 'man up' and go for it Gav! You'd forever be wondering what if otherwise... I personally guarantee it will look awesome!
  11. Booked on this (not my first Frolic!). Should be ace, I love Dijon and look forward to first time at Magny Cours...
  12. I like your thinking, keep the history. Full cage and aero but a bit more sensible ride height and spring stiffness. Relatively comfortable and fun and on the road but still epic on track - a really usable 'drive to trackday' car. GTE matching red would be nice...
  13. That's what it needs Gav, I'm sure it'll be fantastic when done. What are the thoughts on rebuild? original spec or something racier with the full cage?
