  1. Same here. About 55 on the krikit. I use the frequency app as the main setting tool and the krikit as a backup to double check the tension.
  2. One more. Funky colors.
  3. The white wedge, as seen through an SLR lens.
  4. It’s a frame rate kinda thing buddsy. At a high rate, everything looks like a homemade video. You can adjust that in the tv settings. Turn off the true motion or alike setting. You want to get down to 24fps ideally, then things look as they should. OLED is the way to go. LG makes them for a number of brands, Sony and Panasonic is among them. We got a 65” Panasonic OLED 4K. It’s stunning quality and highly recommended.
  5. @Escape it’s back on Catawiki Filip, you can have another go at it...
  6. A few recent pictures from the pain shop. Old rivals with contrasting colors & shapes.
  7. To my understanding, the transmission should come complete with the hubs.
  8. Thanks Steve. Yes it is the Esso Mobile Pegasus. It’s a bit of a reference to old days. Besides the Union Jack that’s the only ‘non standard’ item in the car. The yellow looked ok in photos only. In reality it was a poor paint job, a non-lotus color and with incorrect color coded bumpers. It was pretty awful close up. So in essence, I’m really happy with the new look. The general public reactions also confirms it.
  9. Thanks Henry. If that ever happens again, make sure you look me up mate.
  10. Here’s an update on my car 😁 I really like the new color.
  11. Rare 610E on fleabay now
  12. Actually they were not canned Barry. Only by Lotus. The Eterne became the AM Rapide and the Esprit looks like today’s Huracan. They took the core of the design as their own. As they say, copies are the best form of flattery. Bloody shame though. Wasted opportunity with some real leading designs...
  13. Agree, they looked really good and distinctive. To me the Evija, while spectacular, is too far out designwise, hope the new 131 type is more grounded, especially so if they call it Esprit. Wouldn’t like to see an Evija ‘light’... the cars shown on the autocar cover leave me cold, tbh.
  14. Welcome to the forum Ross. Cool cars and a good story. Seen you on Instagram as well, you put that turbo to good use recently👌. Good to have you on TLF.
  15. Here’s the info on the led relay box of the relay that I installed recently. That should point you in the correct direction. Look up the cable colors in the lotus electrical diagram and connect them accordingly. Bear in mind that some led relays are sensitive to RF interference. Mine was working fine at idle but started to misbehave at higher rpm. I had to swop it for a different type. The connections X, L and P were the same.
