  1. That’s a really good observation. I didn’t check that level of detail but the matching front from G80 M3 is 275/35/19…. Might be push to fit that on evora rim😂😂
  2. For Evora 400 owners I found this video very interesting. You can get the BMW * marked PS4S in lotus sizes…. If you go 245 on front instead of 235 (which lotus does on the 430 wirh same rim dimension) seems like dream spec for a tyre to me. Let’s face it if it wasn’t for fast Cup2 arent great in wet everyone would use them. These star marked that take the PS4S closer to Cup2 dry performance but still allow car to be use in poorer conditions (more so than Cup 2 anyway) for fast road / track users seems perfect
  3. Hi Did you ever find a solution to this please? i have the same problem. Thanks
  4. I have little experience of the lotus sport (although I think my S2 exige had one) but I and many friends have installed 2bular on various cars. I put 2bular on my exige S3 which I just sold and will be buying one for my inbound evora 400. I don’t think you can get a better made exhaust. Sound is subjective but there are that many options from 2bular and Jim (owns 2bular) is so helpful at getting you the right exhaust that you will struggle to go wrong 👍
  5. I hope your right. I will be selling my 2014 exige in a few months and buying my mates 2017 evora 400 so win / win if it’s true 😃
  6. Thanks for the update. I did read though the large other thread after posting my original comment. Sounds like a good mod😃
  7. Hi glad you are happy with this kit im currently considering an evora 400 purchase and have started looking at mods as in base form I don’t feel it’s any quicker than my exige S and man maths dictates a new car must always be faster 😃 do you have any “before” curves please? As with any dyno chart it doesn’t mean a great deal on its own.
  8. On an exige it is possible to do it all from the top once the air box it removed👍
  9. Just helped my mate change the air conditioning condenser on his. Clam off I’m afraid. It’s nowhere near as bad as it sounds aslong as your not in a rush and handy with tools. You will need a mate to lift clam off when you get to that bit. only issue we encountered was the bottom retaining bolt / headlight adjustment jack was bit difficult to remove but on a 410 it should be fine as it’s a lot newer 👍 download the service notes off the lotus cars website and it has it detailed step by step
  10. Forgive me for sounding patronising, it’s not intended. But I think the logic is track exhaust for people who do trackdays or road exhaust for people who don’t. Jim doesn’t like valves in systems used on track, which appears logical given the number of people whose actuators and solenoids seem to fail. that said I’m pretty certain the add ons will work on the road system. or.... get yourself to Spa. They don’t care about noise there. I took my add on silencers all the way there and the marshalls just laughed at me when I asked if I should fit them 😃
  11. When you press the button on side of steering column in touring mode you should see solenoid move and noticeable change in volume yes.
  12. My mate had to change the exhaust valve solenoid on his V6S recently after it gave up on life. Don’t think it was too expensive for replacement.
  13. Any pics of the baffles please? I’d be very interested to see how they work and if they are likely to induce back pressure / heat / end of world type scenarios to the engine.
  14. Sound is much better than oem. It’s hard to describe but without question it sounds a lot better. Im certain you wouldn’t regret installing a 2bular track system. I have the add ons also. Without add ons it’s about 107db for static and with its around 99 dB. I’ve had mine 4 years so can’t remember exact figures but no problems at donnington with add ons and silverstone don’t need add ons for the drive by. I’ve only done the LOT days there and they didn’t do static on days I attended. the whole point of the add ons is for track use so yes they safe. Mine are original design attaches with springs but that’s ditched now in favour of clamps. I’ve never had any issues 👍 just ring Jim at 2bular up if you want some advice. Doesn’t seem very active on here recently.
  15. I couldn’t decide either but ultimately I went for a 2bular track system as I do the odd track day and I have been very happy with it. I think the ecu does learn a bit with the full manifold / back box system and gives you some gains but you really need a remap to make most of it. Back box may give you a handful of bhp but I bought it for the sound which is fantastic whichever system you go for. I guess it depends what you want and how much your prepared to pay. If your going to track it then go for track system
  16. Just the back box I’m fairly sure 👍
  17. Nice comparison. My mate has an Evora 400 that I’ve driven and compared with my exige S I could pretty much copy and paste what you said. I think an evora will be my next car after 2.5 years in an S2 and nearly 6 in my S3. different proposition to the exige, but still typically lotus and still rarer than most other exotica a 2,3,4 times the price. exhaust note is great but too loud. Actually pretty stupid of lotus making it that loud considering how many of their cars see track use. My mate got black flagged at donny last year
  18. Years ago I accidentally filled up with it in my S2 in Germany (thinking it was super unleaded). There was list on engines that wouldn’t accept it online and if I remember correctly (it was about 10 years ago) the Toyota Celica was on the not compatible list. You probably won’t find lotus listed on any such lists but if you can find another Toyota with same engine that would be best bet to see if it’s compatible. My guess would be it isn’t in stock setup but that nothing but a guess
  19. Have a look on here and make your own mind up👍
  20. 2bular various options available and the only properly engined solution in my opinion (I have no affiliation with 2bular, besides being customer)
  21. looks great 👍 Will these be available for the alias23 store? It’s something I’ve thought about for ages but balked at price of bits from lotus and don’t have skill to make my own.
  22. Makes sense😀. Surely waiting until spring so that you can do your post install testing on the ring would make sense too. If you need somewhere to stay near(ish) mendig I would highly recommend the longhorn saloon. Owned by Sabine Schmitz. We had a beer with her and she is even cooler in person than on tv
