  1. I don't know what chargers Lotus supply but the best way to keep a battery in good condition is to use something like a CTEK "maintenance charger". I use them and keep it attached and powered on at all times. It only charges if and when it's needed by continually monitoring the battery. That way your battery won't do a total discharge and potentially become unrecoverable.
  2. Where's the selfie of your grin? wonderful and pleased you found what you wanted. We should meet when I'm next dan sowf!
  3. Shorai make Lithium Iron batteries which are light weight (2.19Kg) This one is Left + Right - connections and this one is Left - Right + There's tons of lightweight brackets to fit every battery. I found what I needed for my Odyssey battery for the Elise easily on eBay stores.
  4. You could look at Odyssey - depends on the size/power you want/need but could be well under 15Kg

  10. Here's some more pics of the Lotus's (Loti?) at the Newcastle NE1 Show this weekend
  11. I quite like my silver ones in the background!
  12. In case anyone else asks and wants a ECU scan / diagnostic tool for the Elise S1, you can get one here:
  13. Thanks Barrie. I'm beginning to think it's that or similar issue. I'll update once I know. I did read on another forum that the wires around that area chafe and wear thin restricting current.
  14. Hi. Firstly apologies if this repeats another thread. I'll explain the symptoms of the problem and would appreciate any advice / pointers to check. Took my S1 (MY2000) out this morning. When I went to start it hesitated on turnover as if the battery was a bit flat. Tried a few times and it fired up fine. Took it out of the garage, parked it up, turned off. Locked garage. Started car - fine. Drove down the road and back. Stopped. About 30 mins later, started OK. Drove about 10 miles. Stopped and then started OK. Stopped to fill up. Wont start. Turns over but wont fire. I think initially it burnt any fuel in the intake (a slight pop) but after that once or twice, nothing. RAC came and said the plugs are dry - he expected it to be flooded so suspected the fuel pump. Checked the 20A in the rear-left of the boot - it's fine. When you turn on the ignition you can hear a click and what I believe is the pump running for a couple of seconds (to prime the system?). I suspected the immobiliser - is that possible if it turns over? I have an EliseParts immobiliser bypass supplied by the PO but cannot see where it goes - nothing matches the instructions with it. Is it for a Cobra alarm or just the original alarm Lotus fitted? Not sure what to check next. Could it be something like the crankshaft sensor failed? I believe there is an ADL diagnostic port in the boot just above the fuel pump fuse but is there an equivalent of Freescan or Esprimon to diagnose what the ECU is seeing? Are there any diag tools available ? (I havent been able to find anything yet) HELP !!! (please)
  15. Great day yesterday (not been before) even if it did chuck it down at times. Plus point - less mud than Glastonbury! Here's Ayrton Senna's JPS Lotus 97T leaving the assembly area
  16. The foil was to act as a heat shield. I have a spare supply of elbows in case a swap-out is needed. However you;re probably right that it would be better to have a different tube from one end to the other and ditch the rubber elbows completely. Likewise I'm reverting my single coolant header tank into two - one for the engine and one for the chargecooler. But's that's for a different topic....
