  1. Was it tricky to get to the ‘inside’ of the subframe George?

    This is a neat solution, I too have had the same problem. I change my Titanium back box out for my H111 Track box each time. I’m fairly quick at it now except  for a few issues trying to align these bolts up, normally requiring me to try to hold the nut from the back. 
    Did you make the fixing or were you able to buy it and repurpose?

     

  2. Great choice to have!

    I have an almost 20 year old 996 Turbo running old Skool 700 bhp, no traction, 2WD etc and a Cup 380.

    The Porsche is a very practical car, easy to get in and out of. Has two useful child seats in the back. 911’s have great storage. It’s things like cup holders, door pockets, glove boxes etc you realise you lose when in the Exige.

    Now, iro of driving, no comparison. Ignoring power delivery  and traction etc the first thing you notice is weight. The Exige (even in V6 form) is a very light modern car. 
    Most appropriate word for driving experience is Visceral.

    I track both cars and they have their faffs. I have to change the exhaust over for the 380 and the Porsche chews very expensive Giro Discs!

    I swapped my Evora 400 for the Exige Cup. I sold my 996 GT3 CS prior to that.

    have you thought of an Evora Cup car? It’s a mid way car I think. Very fast, practical (ish), more storage but still tricky to get in and out of. Plus they sound brilliant on n WOT.

    oh , and stay away from turbo 4pots (wife has a GLA45), Porsche or Merc, they are clever but not sixes!

  3. @Colin67 have an epic time at Spa, I can’t wait to go back!

    My exhaust is the Titanium one which I think might be the loudest OEM version. I popped a vid in the Picture thread.

    I'm confident the Hangar 111 kit will get me through the Snet noise police. Got to keep the noise down for the Pigs (actual pigs in the fields - I’m local in Suffolk  )

  4. Evening all,

    so I have just spent about an hour faffing with the below kit trying to install it.

    I think I have ordered the wrong version but by the time I started tonight working hours are over otherwise I would have just phoned up to check.

    I am off to Spa and Zolder next week so am a bit keen to fit the removable wheel.

    Has anyone done this on this version of Exige? Effectively the boss is one piece with the non airbag wheel.

    Thanks

    Greg

    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.

    I do find it’s hit and miss on this. Clearly unreasonable for a TDO to allow this but their enforcing of TD discipline remains inconsistent.

    i sympathise with Mathew - I have a similar story with the Fiesta crowd at Snetterton a couple of years ago.
