  1. Just had this.

    Traction light on. Couldn’t select modes or use cruise control.

    Intermittent problem that got progressively more frequent.

    Cause was a faulty brake pedal switch. B&C replaced under warranty.

    Might be worth checking if your brake lights are working if you get this problem.

    Didn’t know to check mine but in theory they shouldn’t have been working and would have diagnosed the issue.

    Apart from the obvious danger of no brake lights. 😮

    For future reference, etc.

  2. You do know that the ride height on the Ohlins is really easy to adjust via the spring preload collars?

    Front can be done without even removing the wheel. Pop the wheel off for the rear.

    Wether you can get it up enough to clear the problem without affecting the handling too much is another matter of course.

    I made my own tool. An old 6mm drill bit drilled into a bit of old broom handle. Patent pending.

  3. In my experience you need to try one on.

    I’m not particularly tall (6’) but am long in the torso compared to leg.

    I just fit comfortably normally but with a helmet on I don’t really.
    Need to push my hips forward with a lumbar cushion and move the seat back a bit.

    Everyone’s a slightly different shape.

    It works for me too. 

    One jack on the central beam; avoid the sills. YMMV. 

    Well you’ve put it out there now, so...

    2 inch wide bit of wood in the channel in the main beam just in front of the shear panel and jack on that. 
    It’s well balanced front/rear as it’s exactly at the car’s 1/3-2/3 weight distribution point. (CoG).

    Apparently it’s what the Evora race boys do.

    But, very definitely, you do so at your own risk!

    Thank you! Will let you know.... 

    Just loosen the nuts and see if the studs move.

    I drilled drain holes in the corners of the hinge pocket on mine. No problem.

    If you take off the pollen filter cover you can poke around and feel that there’s nothing underneath.

    Chrome Orange’s pic is of an S1 Evora. The 400 is different.

    Any water just joins the rest that goes in through the main grilles.
