    Geometry Settings

    Sorry for the late response. The settings I got from Silverstone Lotus for the rears were: - 1.8 degrees for the camber which is - 1 Deg 48 minutes. When I had them adjusted last weekend I decided to take some camber off and had them set at - 1 Deg 38 minutes. I will monitor them for wear and handling. Regards Will

    Geometry Settings

    Ive been in touch with Silverstone Lotus today and got the settings and good advice from a guy called Matt. He even located a racing garage locally to me who use the Hunter alignment tool which is what Lotus use which I'm going to arrange a visit and have the alignment checked over and adjusted. Matt gave me plenty of his time and I would definately recommend Silverstone Lotus. Regards Will

    Geometry Settings

    Thanks for your response Simon, If I could see your setting I could get my aligned to the figures and then see how it goes from there. I've just taken my locally today for two MPSS fitting from blackcicle. £523.00 and want to see more from the mileage on this set so a good time to adjust the alignment. Regards Will
  4. Like most Evora owners my rear tyres are wearing on the inner edge which is a characteristic of the car and causing the rear tyres to be changed more frequently than any other sport car. After having the geometry checked by a Lotus garage and only slight adjustment made I'm still only getting 8.5k miles from a new set of tyres with no track days or heavy driving etc. i don't mind paying the high price for the Evora tyres but it does bother me that the old tyres still have plenty of tread remaining from the centre to the outer edge but are illegal due to the worn inner edge of the tyre. Has anyone had their geometry adjusted away from spec to give them better mileage on the rears and if so what are these settings and how much did it effect the handling of the car. Any advice on geometry setting to get more miles out of my rear tyres would be appreciated. Best regards Will

  6. I recently had my battery disconnected for several weeks and when I put it back on the Red Airbag light is now constantly on. I have a OBDII reader (Original Autel AutoLink AL619 OBDII CAN ABS and SRS Scan) that should take the light off if I knew which car manufacturer supplied the Airbag Modules to Lotus because when using the scanner you have to select which car manufacturer/model/year and any variants to the model of car. So my question is: What car is the Airbag Module off on my 2013 Lotus Evora S Sports Racer. Regards Will

    V8 Engine knock when warm after rebuild

    Wayne, the overheating could be caused if your radiator is blocked which is usually by the cooling fins collapsing and restrict the air from passing through it to carry out the cooling. A new or reconditioned radiator would then be required. Regards Will

    Black Evora today Huddersfield

    What looked like a Black Evora passing through Clayton West in the Huddersfield area just as I was coming out of work for my lunch at 12:45 today. It happened so quick and was driving away in the distance I didn't get the registration. Definitely a Lotus not 100% sure an Evora but I should be because I have one also. Regards Will
