  1. I have the 265 Komotec kit fitted to my 2015 S club Racer, carried out during 2020 , completed about 5k miles.car currently on 26K. My setup included 2Tublar complete system and Cat, with all the remaining parts Komotec. Fitted in the UK by H111; rolling road recorded 255bhp and 199 lb ft torque there are a few completed 220/250 cup in the uk showing between 255/265bhp, to be honest it drives much better than when it was standard 217 bhp,The idle and town driving feel much smoother and the power has a solid smooth push to the limiter. did I really need the extra power ,probably not , but it is a great addition with no negatives regarding the mods, the numbers don’t reflect how much more go the car can deliver. FYI, Super unleaded is a requirement on this kit. Regarding noise all ZR engines with the complete system are noisy, mine is acceptable for the long journeys for holiday etc but not for the quieter track day circuits. Gear change on my car is lovely and slick, it doesn’t have the post 17.5 engineered feel but I am more than happy. 195 tyres are fine on the standard 6” rims which all supercharged S3 220 came on , will move to them this year as 175 unavailable or getting on date wise. if in doubt stick with OEM spec, as I said before I probably didn’t work the original hard enough , let alone the new increased power setup. happy hunting, Stephen
  2. Hi Chris, sorry for leaving it a bit late, but can you add Kim and I to the booking if not too late. Look forward to seeing everyone after such a long time. Stephen
  3. All booked, staying locally for the 3 days. This is a great event, the organisation over the whole period has to be applauded. My better half had the accommodation booked as soon as the dates were released. Great video, really makes you want to be part of the fun. Best way to enjoy yours and others Lotus Cars. S&K
  4. Congratulations, very nice not much chance of keeping up now, at least I can enjoy the noise from a far. love the red accent on the inside. ps Kim approves ,the rear spoiler design is the only one she would have. Look forward to seeing in the flesh. S&K
  5. Thanks to Dave & Megan for a lovely morning, great food and a fab location. Great selection of new and old cars. Some pictures included but can’t load up video, probably to long showing all cars Stephen & Kim
  6. Hi @Kevjp, we are coming in from Hertford and can meet at Pearces Farm lay-by for 8:30. If anything changes just post, will keep an eye out. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
  7. @Mark030358 made me smile 🙂 Great to have car back, The Dash and Camera both from Dave at S/Lotus is even better than I had hope for.Just need to adjust camera slightly but works perfectly. The binnacle is finished the same as the OEM version. It photos lighter than viewing with the naked eye. Most people wouldn't even notice that you have changed anything. The Komotec upgrade has definitely given the car some serious get up and go for an Elise. Overall very happy with the upgrades.
  8. Give Dave at Seriously lotus a call, just touch on this subject, Given your road/track split, he would have some good solid advise and options available within the Nitron ranges you mention.
  9. @Mark030358Thanks for info, Dash project just got a little bit dearer as current Mac can't support //s. Now speccing a new Mac. Collecting car tomorrow from H111, New Dash & camera plus Komotec upgrade Thanks
  10. @Mark030358bit of help required. Noticed that your using Mac for the Race Studio downloads/updates. Just purchased the dash but my current Mac don't have Windows loaded. I understand I need Parallel, did you load Windows 10 during the same process or after? Grateful for any guidance. Stephen
  11. Count us in, will be lovely to see you all, ChrisJ Me and Schumacher Sparkles (dammit, they've got me saying it now) NigelM Senior internets Pete Stephen & Kim
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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 .
