  1. The traction control fault is coming up intermittently. It usually clears after restart but comes back after 100 miles or so. Likely a sensor but would be good to get it cleared so I can use Race mode. Anyone know somewhere near Spa I could get it cleared? Thanks!
  2. I’m definitely planning to be there if I can and would be great to be at TLF stand - good to hear you’ve gone for Silver wheels Tony!

    Crap at keeping up on here - I’m in Petersfield

    GT430 on track at Portimao. This car’s natural home!

    Yes. Also thinking of going to Silverstone with an engineer and doing some live work there in early April

    So I took the car to Millbrook in the wet last week and thrashed it round the skid pan. Basically simulated a hairpin, approach fast, brake late, trail to apex, point and floor it. In normal tour mode it was impossible to get the car unstuck even in the wet. Power was cut, understeer. Good to know. In Sport the car snapped in the wet much more quickly but was just about rescuable. TC did cut in eventually though and still not optimal. Race was initially not good in the wet and the car kept spinning out (admittedly with the throttle wide open on nearly full lock!). But quickly it became manageable and progressive. In the dry the combo of tyres, aero and chassis will make Race much the best mode. Didn't really play with the variable TC though suspect this will be fun in the dry if not the quickest way round. The car did understeer at the limit and I wonder if this can dialed out through the suspension. Any thoughts?

    Ha - never saw this. It was me probably running in!!
  9. Loving my car so of course I think you can’t go wrong with that spec!

    For those buying - I invested in Gtecniq ceramic coating. Well worth it and a doddle to clean

    Think I might know who that is!

    Late to the party chaps! Been on the road. Essex Blue, Silver wheels, sound dead, stereo (!!), red cat scratches, carbon buckets. Black interior (though loving Jonny’s red buckets I think the black suits this car better). Likely bar and harnesses to follow. All run in now and at full throttle. A remarkable car with the balance of a Lotus as we know it, incredible poise, infinite grip, epic noise and extreme power

    Great to see how positive the reviews are. I can say after 300 miles and running in that it is a special car
