  1. Good link @C8RKH Will bear it in mind if I see more reports. Just watched the full video of the track work, nice to see he doesn’t hold back and was almost keeping up with the GT3. I guess the tell tale in the future will be if we see additional braces or metal changes on future cars...
  2. I’m a member on the worldwide FB GT4 owners Group.. 3500 members. Apart from the 3rd gear issue for which there is a recall nothing goes wrong. Lots of cars are pure track racers or track biased and the only thing is third gear. Just scrolled through months and months of it, nothing. Strutt failure isn’t a common reported fault and that chap is either unlucky or has hit a curb or something quite hard like the mechanic suggests despite the Vlogger trying to get him to say it’s Porsche. Funny how the vlogger also says after the off at Knockhill that his friend Peter always has a spin and ends up in a gravel trap... and his Cayman GT4 must have had the toughest life of any car in the world... Noted, but think this is a rare event.
  3. One of my favourite RoadTrips was in a Black (white interior) V8 XJ8... W - reg, borrowed from my brother (Company Car), what a thing.. cars that waft and ride so well don’t exist under 100k these days
  4. Incredible spec and gorgeous looking car. All the details are just right. Love everything about it. Like the 350 can be tracked without noise limits right?
  5. Sold but is a 360 Cup better than a 350 Sport?
  6. Wouldn’t surprise me if the 250 Elise was more fun to drive though.
  7. If it’s just for the road driving I’d probably suggest Elise (more than enough speed up to 100mph) but if it’s for the track.. Exige everyday! My first lap at Hethel in a 350Sport was 5 seconds a lap faster than in an Elise 220Sport... 6 laps later I was more that 6.5 seconds faster! A few months later I sold my Elise.
  8. Was guzzumped on an Esprit GT3 by them...
  9. V6 Cup with 8,000 miles for £47k Looks like it’s in great condition. More appealing for trackdays than a 350 Sport and cheaper.
  10. It’s a perfect match. My X5’s days are numbered!
  11. There’s a multimillion investment from abroad... people with resources that don’t accept anything but success. Theyll pull it off and put Lotus where they deserve to be... As for the critics, it’ll be one of those moments where we can be really British and not say anything about it
  12. Heard of a 2013 V6s with Komotec 470 coming up.. 15k Miles mint condition with good spec in an ok colour. What’s it worth?
