  1. Sorry guys & girls, currently without car , not sure if we will have it back for this meet. so concentrating on work , ready to pay the bill . S&K
  2. Thanks for that , will be an interesting read ,it is a more serious upgrade with a totally new ecu , which is the only way the tuners are dealing properly with the 250 cup. There are a number of 250cup owners on the Facebook site that have had the the full exhaust systemS and have had mil lights on due to emissions codes and fuelling issues.
  3. The 250 cup model doesn’t seem to be as easy to retune as the original cup 220 & the normal model Elise with the 2zr engines.The ecu is the issue, I believe it’s the encryption Stopping total access, Komotec kits direct or via H111 are not listing the 250 model , You mention RRR they use the Ecumaster Ecu to great affect However so does Komotec and H111 , the only thing to remember is the ecu will have a different traction control system to the original, this may not bother some people , but it depends on what the car is for road/ Track From my experience it’s best to use one company or at least confirm prior to cherry picking parts etc. I have Jim’s complete system for my car, however to have the ecu tuned by Komotec I would have to go to Germany as it was not available in the uk to me. Gutted as I was due there 2 weeks ago but There’s more important issues at the moment .
  4. Unfortunately it’s totally different and the parts required are not cheap, couple of the the exige v6 guys have updated to the exposed shifter , they had the work done at HPE I believe.
  5. So sorry to hear of your loss Chris, Stephen & Kim
  6. Got the same issue as you at the moment . Coolant level dropped to the same level as you stated and is never the same now; can be higher / lower by 1cm . Going back to H111 this Friday for the safety recall plus this to be fixed.This is the first time in probably 8 coolant changes I have seen this happen so it can be sorted. It’s not just a case of topping up as soon as pressure rises in the system it is ejected out via the black pipe , indicator there is air trapped.
  7. 2 seats at the table for us please Pete, sorry for the late reply.
  8. Oh joy , stinking cold /sore throat has arrived to ruin my weekend plans, if by a miracle tomorrow morning I feel a lot better , we will attend and enjoy your company & breakfast. Stephen
  9. Just to clarify some points on your original post, the Komotec Upgrades phase 2&3 are complete kits with altered files reflashed via the OBD port to the original Ecu plus hardware. They are the only changes ,everything else stays as OEM. Ie traction / stability control, idle etc. The only other option is a replacement ecu and new mapping and the hardware to complete, this would move you much further away from your stated goal, if you are tracking seriously all be it a limited number each year , I would agree with the above 220/250 cup or exige however if it’s more for the road I would stick with what you have , I have 2015 s3 the only thing that let it down was the exhaust note and to be honest the parts that made up the complete system, they work , but on a car like these they deserve a bespoke setup , and there lies the rub , you require the new ecu info to enjoy there benefits. on the 17.5 year cars like Neals they sound great from the factory. plus ,most mods costs will not be realised if you wish to sell and insurance has to be considered . last of all ,the cups cars look amazing ,and I came very close to buying Neals car ( best Colour), but if you go to places as we do for our holiday etc there no way the Aero kit would remain intact . After doing the bronze / silver days at Lotus the standard setup is more than capable for my ability’s on the road.

  11. Sorry for the late reply, only me again for Breakfast , Kim on Xmas duties .
  12. Did wonder if the height of the driver would become an issue , We have visited RRR and Robert gave us a good demonstration of what is possible , I will be really interested to see the bespoke binnacle design , please post any updates, Our issue is we cannot see hardly any of the tell tale screen in the sun with roof off , and more importantly the warning signs . We probably have the opposite issue to you as the steering wheel boss effects our view into the display. If we go down this route the layout will be totally different to what we have now, and the beauty of this dash means we can tailor it suit different drivers , ( my better half is very speed aware so wants clear digital numbers ) Next year could be very costly as we are also looking to have there ecu package fitted.
  13. How are you getting on with the new setup i believe yours is the one on RRR Facebook page , showing it working with the cowlings adjustments, What it like if you have managed to find some sun on your drives out. thanks
