  1. Looks a stunner....just like mine...well apart from the rear diffuser and a few horse power
  2. I generally find my Sports Racer quite stealthy, not attracting much attention at all really. But a couple of weeks back I was virtually home from an early morning blat with the MLOC crowd when I pulled up at a junction and could see a family out of the corner of my eye. As I set off the young lad very excitedly shouted 'Lamborghini, Lamborghini!!!'
  3. It is with much sadness that we have to announce this year’s Lotus in the Peak event is now CANCELLED. The ongoing situation with the Covid-19 pandemic has made it impossible to know when or if restrictions would be lifted sufficiently and in time to allow mass gatherings such as LitP to be held. Additionally, Motorsport UK extended its suspension of all organising permits and certificates of exemption for motorsport events until at least 30th June. This in itself left us very little time before our planned July event date. All those already booked on will receive a full refund.
  4. It's stuck on with double-sided tape. If you have something like fishing line you can loop that round and cut through the tape with a sawing action
  5. MLOC are pleased to announce that Lotus in the Peak 2020 is now available for booking via the MLOC store. This year's event will run very much on similar lines to before. There will once again be a Friday night barbecue at the Charles Cotton Hotel in Hartington for all those wishing to make a weekend of it. Saturday is a leisure day allowing people time to explore all that the Peak District has to offer. Sunday is the main event - There will once again be 3 early morning runs, this time starting from either Ashbourne, Whaley Bridge or from Hassop Station for the 'classic ru
  6. You're welcome @rallyesax hopefully your trim will fit more snugly to the windscreen than mine. Best advice I can say is do a trial dry fit to get an idea of how well it will fit and whether any dressing may be required before applying the tape. Good luck with yours
  7. As previously mentioned I decided to have another go at my A pillar trim because it had lifted away from the screen towards the top of the windscreen as you should be able to see below:- Whilst it appeared fine when I first fitted it over time, and particularly when it was hot, it gradually came unstuck and started lifting. Once lifted dirt gets under it and it never sticks back down again. The following two photos show the trim in its free state and then when I apply pressure to get it where it should be:- I had thought it was the tang at the top of the trim t
  8. Just added some red mirrors to my Sports Racer too
  9. No problem @rallyesax, I may we'll have had another go at mine in the next 2 weeks so will update this thread with my findings if I do.
  10. @rallyesax I used 12mm wide tape, the same width as Lotus supplied. It is a foam tape about 1-2mm thick from memory, any good motor factor should have it. Something like this on eBay:- https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F391217705329 I will be revisiting mine sometime soon as I have found that the tape has come unstuck from the glass near the top of the windscreen so make sure everything is properly degreased beforehand. If you are doing it now I would also make sure everything is good and warm using a hot air gun or the like. I think th
  11. I fitted a replacement trim myself and that has lifted. I need to have another go at it sometime. I think the problem lies with the spigot location at the top where the trim slots under the roof panel. This spigot location imparts a bending force into the trim itself which over time causes the tape to debond, particularly so when it's hot. I reckon the 'mod' would be to remove some of the spigot, that's what I plan to do next time anyhow
  12. Hi @trcm, sorry to hear that. I'm very pleased to say I've had no problems since the master cylinder was replaced and race spec fluid used, that said I've only done a couple of thousand miles since so maybe not the most exhaustive of tests. Hopefully Lotus will be similarly sympathetic with you. All the best Phil
  13. As great as those ducts look on the GT410/430 from the outset they were always going to result in severe gravel rash of the inner surfaces. I reckon you've done a top job there, if I had a GT410 I'd being doing the same for sure
  14. Finally got my PS4S's fitted and am most impressed so far. Noticeably quieter and the ride feels softer too. I also haven't encountered the 'skipping' that would occur with the Pirellis when manoeuvring on full lock at low speeds. I have no intent of using them on track but for road use they certainly get my vote
