  1. (They need to make a Lego Technic one though)
  2. (indeed before I edited my post I was surprised there were cars and coffee meets even during the work week ... that was until I realized you posted about this on Saturday, hence why I edited my post ^^. Anyway, thanks for the explanation since it appears there actually are car meets organized during the work week!)
  3. Glad you are gaining mobility, it must be quite something to lose one's arm usage all of a sudden! Also, very, very nice interior!
  4. Very nice! Also beware of the general purpose cleaner, I have seen some carpet strangely discoloured on a used bit I once bought for the Elan. Maybe it was not related to a cleaner at all, but ...?
  5. (Was it related to the Queen Jubilee ?! Sounds stupid but ... )
  6. Stupid question maybe, but are the drag coefficients ever verified? I mean, the performances (and weight) figures are notoriously off on most brands so why would it be different for the drag coefficient?
  7. 1994 Lotus Esprit Sport 300 The rare Sport 300 is a lightweight, high-performance, road-going derivative of the Esprit X180R and widely regarded as the best Esprit ever.

  8. Not an Esprit only video, but ...
  9. I think in the USA it's more common to modify cars anyway?
  10. 27k-Mile 2002 Lotus Esprit V8 25th Anniversary Edition Winner – 5 bids to $85,000 on May 25, 2022
  11. If I remember well the max boost of the S4s is 1 bar without the overboost. I am not sure how you are trying to adjust the actuator? It should be done with a pressure gauge and a calliper (the measuring one, not the braking one :D) and that's about it?
  12. Just to be sure, maybe you could try to reset the ECU since it may have learned bad infos when your cat was blocked?
  13. Indeed there were still some Toyo a couple of years ago but they seem to have disappeared! I can't see much available on either for instance 😕 (=delti in other countries if I understand well)
  14. Do they have the inner part too by the way? (I think I have seen some but never went that far to check whether they had the right dimensions)
  15. They do but, would the driver be able to get out of it? @exeterjeep Your photos are very interesting as they show new cars straight out of the factory so they are a good historical reference (same for the M100 ones you already posted) Thanks!

    M100 Elan photos

    I am surprised the aerial is on the right side?!

    I confirm it doesn't look like my SE either.
  18. Has this been made by someone here? It's pretty awesome. And there are other videos of FEM simulations on the chassis too.
  19. Hello and welcome to you @Spoon! Nice car and nice road too, which is a good combo! I hope you don't have too much work to do on it, after all a blown coolant pipe is nothing and a flywheel is not too hard to replace either (I don't know if they are still available though?)
  20. It had a diesel generator?! I didn't remember that! (but on the other hand I am not sure I have seen that episode — at least not the whole episode)
  21. I would say an electric one with a petrol engine generator? (I think in a hybrid the petrol engine can propel the car too?)
  22. Are you sure your cable is assigned to the COM 3 port? You should have a look at the device manager on your computer, is should look like the attached screen capture. If it's not the same com port number, you may change the number in the lotus.cfg file or change the number in the device manager (if the COM 3 defined in your lotus.cfg file is not already used of course)
