  1. Hi all I have the standard wheels on my 2016 v6 my question is does the Michelin cup 2 tires which are slightly larger on the front 215 instead of 205 still fit and if so does it affect handling ? Is it just a little higher ? My apologies if this has been asked before I have been trolling but couldn't see anything. gavin
  2. Hi all I have a question and ssc aren't getting back to me so does anybody know the answer to my question ? Can I send ssc my car fpf file that I have taken from the car before I have fitted the supercharger meaning as soon as they send me the updated file I can change the supercharger and install file immediately and drive away ? If I have to install supercharger first I could be waiting I'm not sure how long for the updated file to arrive without being able to start or even move the car... I hope that makes sense and someone can help as want to avoid having to wait weeks for a file and my car being stuck in a garage Many thanks for any feedback
  3. So I take it no news then !! Shame maybe they were just a rumour that won't materialise as it's been a while !!!
  4. Any body got any updates when SSC exhaust manifolds are going to be released so we can add it to the tvs1900 mod ?
  5. Anyone know where to get the pieces needed to fit the lower panel I can't find anyone with them in stock ?
  6. Anyone think there is some way of retaining the lotus badge on the supercharger as I think it looks great ? Is there a heat resistant metal epoxy that would withstand the heat ? Would like to place it on the tvs1900 if possible ?
  7. VERDICTS !!! It's time for me to decide Komotec 430 with linear power and a little more noise due to manifolds etc or TVs 1900 with what looks to be a bit more torque ??? Price similar !! 460 better choice but way more expensive !!! Has ANYONE tried both the 430 and the TVs modified cars to compare ?
  8. Anyone with standard v6 Exige got a sure way of reducing understeer or is it there for ever and any tyre advice welcome as just finishing first set of standard p zero's ? I only go to track 6 or 7 times a year so mostly road use. Did first track day last week and found understeer pretty bad many thanks
  9. Anyone know what's best if leaving the car for 3 months i.e. Disconnect battery or does that interfere with immobiliser or shall I just leave it and hope it's ok and just charge the battery if not ? thanks in advance Gavin
  10. Has anyone got a contact for purchasing a set of original Pirelli p zero tyres for the Exige s that will post them ? What's the cost of a new set ? Hard to find on the island of mallorca ?
  11. Hanger 111 Hi Dave I work away all summer so only track in winter but mainly road use so temps not an issue, if it's bad to race above 25 degrees I'm ok.. is the car a lot noisier with the 430 kit and standard backbox ? As you know Dave I found the komotec valved exhaust too much inside the car how's the 430 car compared to that ? thanks for the response gav
  12. Gadhead cheers for the feedback I get ya ? Hanger 111 £4000 more plus tax then convert it to euros and it's more than €6000 !! Twice as much.. let me know if you hear of anyone that's heard or tried a 430 ✌️Cheers
  13. Almost twice as much for extra 30 ponies doesn't seem cost effective ?Have you tried either ?
  14. Komotec 430 Please any feedback much appreciated is it a upgrade that is well worth the €6000 it's a lot of cash ! is it a good performance upgrade for the money for road use mainly ? Is it much noisier with the manifold upgrade as not wanting a crazy volume ? Any feedback from anyone that has taken the plunge I would appreciate it ? Thankyou Quote
  15. Supersprint exhaust !!! Anybody got any feedback or reports of hearing one ?
  16. Didn't get the spacers shown in pic but I know it's 6 mm above the spacer if you have them but spacer doesn't look as thick as the plug if that makes sense.. I'm thinking about 4 mm left above the plug to the rubber seal ? whats your measurement from top of plastic plug to the edge by rubber seal please ?
  17. I have taken delivery of soft top and conversion kit but there's no spacers to make the template holes.. can someone tell me the distance from the top of the back plug plastic piece to the top of roll bar where rubber starts so I can make my own spacer template
  18. Help please I have taken delivery of soft top and conversion kit but there's no spacers to make the template holes.. can someone tell me the distance from the top of the back plug plastic piece to the top of roll bar where rubber starts so I can make my own spacer template
  19. How are they now mine is strange some days worse than others and doesn't seem temperature related !!!
