  1. I have the same pads and use my car daily. the screeching sound is very minimal and i don't even notice it.
  2. 380 Cup here but I've basically got the same decals plus the matt black stick on the front spoiler. 18,000km, 2 years ownership and everything still there and fine. When I first got the car I was worried the 380 Cup wordmark decals would peel off and so bought a spare but they dont seem like they're peeling or coming off now.
  3. When @BAS got the spanner at the track this past weekend we used my OBD reader and it didn't pull up any errors. Then we headed to the garage pit next door over to Lotus (they were at the track that day) and they connected their computer to his car and were able to find a bunch of random issues.
  4. A carbon wrap could also be an option (probably easier as well) and could potentially blend into the interior better. The 430 Cup already uses a matt carbon binnacle so wouldn't be too out of place.
  5. I'm in Kuwait so the local dealer here, we only have 1 https://www.instagram.com/alghanimlotuskw/
  6. yeah they're super cool but also my car had so many issues
  7. I got the car when it had around 3500KM on it and the engine blew at around 14,000 i think,. Dealer let me trade up to the 380 Cup which is how I ended up with it.
  8. well that car was a lemon and the engine ended up blowing on me. But i think this specific issue was related to a cracked catalytic convertor.
  9. Thanks will do that today, if it doesn't work I have an appointment at the dealer soon to swap out my brake pads, will have them take a look at this while there
  10. This started a couple of months back but has now gotten worse. It's basically squeaking the whole time now when I'm driving. I'm guessing some screw loosened up? Can anyone help me out, pleeeeaaassssseeeeeeeeee before I drive myself into the ocean!
  11. yup, it's a pretty slippery track especially the first couple of sessions of an open day
  12. Just a quick little flyby video, the first car is the 430 Cup which belongs to @BAS and the second is my 380 Cup
  13. I bought these when I first got my car but haven't fitted them yet. Would be curious if they're worth installing, it was kind of an impulse buy because I thought I would have an issue heel and toeing.
  14. I've got a 380 Cup my friend has the 430 Cup with titanium exhaust. Mine sounds better and is louder and most importantly I can open or close the valves with a touch of a button. My friend has to resort to unplugging the valve line or something like that to get the valves to stay open.
  15. Does the hans device also stop your head tilting right and left by any chance while tracking? I've noticed on hard turns i tend to tilt my head too much. maybe i need to start working out my neck muscles like F1 drivers 🤔
  16. I was kinda upset with the dealer when my Cup came with a regular battery, but after reading on how difficult Lithium batteries are to take care of, I'm glad I've got a regular battery in my car.
  17. I got these https://www.msar.co.uk/motorsports/Harnesses/Racing-4pt-Belts/Car-Specific/Schroth-LOTUS-II-4pt-asm_73.html
  18. Not that this is a surprise, but the 430 Cup is considerably more powerful than my 380 Cup. Me and my friend were on the track yesterday, the first time together, he had a passenger with him so more weight and yet he was able to just zoom by me on a straight while I'm going as fast as I can making me feel so slow. 50hp makes a big difference 😅
  19. Just an update, I got the PFC08 pads for the front. They're great so far but I also never had issues with the OEM pads. I've used them on the road so far (maybe around 2,000km) and on two track days. The PFC08's do squeak, not too bad though and not all the time. definitely bearable. I think I'll be ordering them for the rear as well.
