  1. 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
  2. Anyone know if it's possible to upgrade the C127 dash to the logging option with GPS?
  3. As mentioned I was about to advertise properly this week at around £45k but open to offers. More details here:
  4. 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!
  5. Booked on this (not my first Frolic!). Should be ace, I love Dijon and look forward to first time at Magny Cours...
  6. 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...
  7. 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?
  8. Rats! I don't have a glovebox in the 2-11... Definitely the easier to adjust the more you'll 'play' and optimise.
  9. Nice Gav, that in the Evora? Active adjustment? Hopefully get a nosey at Zandvoort...
  10. Item 32 here? I'd imagine they are into captive/spire nuts but not listed in the diagram.
  11. Reminds me of a printout from a dealer servicing my daily driver Elise S2 111S in 2005. They questioned the unusual tyre wear and assumed the ECU printout must be an error. It listed a fastest 0-60mph of 4.7 (beating the lotus claimed 5.1) and had recorded 48 standing starts since the last service... ...I was also competing in sprints at the time. My Evora spends a sad amount of time on cruise control at 52mph these days.
  12. Yep, that's what I meant, a linear temperature gradient. Looks like you now have a reasonable camber setting that will generate the right temperature difference between the inside and the outside of the tyre. From here, a simple optimisation is to adjust the individual tyre pressures so that the temperature at the mid section is half way between the inside and the outside (giving you the linear gradient). If the middle is relatively too hot then reduce the pressure, if too cold then increase pressure.
  13. I noticed increased tramlining with tyre wear. I've just replaced the very worn 20" rear PZero Corsa (with the same) and the tramlining is almost completely gone. The tyres were worn much more on the inside so I can see how that combined with negative camber would cause tramlining.
  14. I'm not sure I fully understand your temperature profile table but you're aiming for an even temperature gradient across the profile. If the mid section is close to the outer that would suggest that individual tyre pressure was a little high?
  15. I've taken Eau Rouge flat in my 211, it's standard 260 bhp, road aero and on Avon ZZR. Takes some building up to though, needs lots of kerb and the car is very mobile through the left at the top. I found Blanchimont slightly easier in comparison but last time (understandably) they didn't like you putting wheels over the white line on the right at entry so I couldn't quite get it flat. I couldn't do either with a passenger so repect for your driver! I found the best way to build up to it was to short shift from La Source and get used to the feeling of driving through completely flat (albeit at a slightly slower entry speed). Then gradually increase the 'rev limit'... In an Exige V6? With the extra entry speed? No thanks!
  16. http://wiki.the Above link should help. 6mm

  18. Does this give you 3rd party liability cover for a Public Day (the big problem for UK insured cars and a legal requirement)? Take advice from the European guys on here with caution, their insurance situation may be different. You will find your UK insurer excludes use on Nurburgring public days and then you have zero 3rd party liabilty cover (worst case imagine someone crashes and is badly hurt, Police deem it your fault and you end up with £20M bill). There are also cases where cars spotted on track have had their UK insurance cancelled. You may decide to take the risk but as long as you know the implications. If it was me I'd drive there in the Evora then rent from a reputable company. e.g. ...or do a closed track day. That said, enjoy the trip, it's an awesome place!
  19. Everyone needs a 2-11 and an Evora...

  20. I'm also going. Zandvoort before and the Alps after...
  21. I little technique helps in the Evora. I'm over 6'2" and get in and out easily without moving the seat back even when the door can't be opened fully. Basically right leg out (a wee bit of flexibility required) Then crucially left leg under the steering wheel. Right hand at the rear of the sill. Right leg onto the road and stand up whilst turning to the right (end up standing facing backwards). Way easier than an Exige but the same technique applies.
  22. Yep, probably me. Enjoy the new car!
