  1. Cheers. Foam tape now added. Noise gone. Full disclosure, I got Stratton to do it yesterday. I'd gone over to get the A/C sorted. I haven't been using it much at all and the seals had dried out enough to lose much of the gas. Note to self: use the A/C.
  2. Ah, Interesting. That does seem to be where the noise is coming from, but I think we all know that these noises can be really deceptive. So am I understanding right that you removed the soft-top "Latch Plates" and installed the tape between those and the painted side of the roll hoop cover bodywork? In that case I guess there was no need to remove the trim under the roll hoop, right? Thanks
  3. I know this is a common one, so I imagine plenty of you have had this and fixed it. I'm assuming the clam is rubbing against the roll hoop itself. Am I best removing just the trim from the underside of the hoop? Is the rubbing surface likely to be the front of the hoop against the vertical face or more over the top of the hoop? Cheers Martyn
  4. Hey Gary How did you get on with your search? I'm based in Cambridge near the Science Park, with the Flame Red 350 Sport if that helps.
  5. Yeah, I have one of these Not crazy cheap, but refillable with the resin beads. If you found a cheaper source, excellent work.
  6. Nice. I like the screw reinforcement. Is that nylon or PETG? Pretty sure PLA or ABS will have trouble with petrol vapour.
  7. If you don't mind buying a spare cap into the deal, this might be an option... I'd offer to print you a new part in nylon, but I doubt it would be strong enough to last.
  8. Oh I do love it when racing teams use regular track days as cheap testing days and cause red flags every ten minutes. Means we can all have lots of fun sitting in the pits and queueing to go back out. No, that's not right, I f***ing hate that!! Grrr. Good to know on the noise limits.
  9. Hey @notabene I don't know if you already found my posts on doing exactly this mod, but if not, try here... ... as you can see I did have to make a small mod to the spacer, using a small lathe which I luckily own. Maybe you have access to one, or know someone who does. I also made some spacers to assist with correct assembly, and changed the bolts for longer ones. I suspect the spacer that George linked to avoids all this messing about, so I'd go with that instead. I'm not sure you can actually drop the stock seats by much, because the seat hangs down below the mounts, so dropping the mounts doesn't get you far. Certainly not 2" unless I'm completely mistaken. Maybe it was different on the S? Hope that helps
  10. Thanks for the write up Peter. Sorry it's taken me so many months to log into the forums. This year hasn't been the smoothest. Looks like the HID is better for real world driving visibility, out at distance. A bit hard to compare the wet vs dry tarmac. Dry kicks back so much more light than wet. Cheers
  11. It's worth noticing that the Pioneer units are resistive touch (i.e. single finger presses into the surface slightly, and scrolling/dragging is hard) whereas the Alpine CarPlay units are multi-touch capacitative like a smartphone/tablet screen. Worth trying one of each before committing that much cash. I'm beginning to consider a solution like the Alpine iLX-F903D, with its 9", non folding but posable screen.
  12. Does look like Scarlet. That Sakhir Orange looks much better on it than most BMWs
  13. ... apart from the Nürburgring Combined Circuit. Looks great though. That's going to be taxing to learn. Nice that it's so compact for incident handling.
  14. Both tracks look great fun and the Exige is making a decent account of itself. BTW, do you know that you're holding lock all the way to corner exit rather than blending into the throttle? I know it's something I've worked on and so I kept noticing it in both vids. It doesn't seem to be losing you a huge amount, but might be something to bear in mind.
  15. LOL! Weigh yourself with and without the panel and subtract the two. Just sayin' Love those aero catches
