  1. Already got tickets but if you need an Exige 350 with added aero, more than welcome.

    Now "Happy Lotus Owner"...

    Sorry to hear about your issues. Our Exige 350 gearbox did exactly the same thing on our first trackday ever at Bedford. There were quite a few other Lotus guys there who all had a poke around, but our track day finished after 3 laps. Lotus sent a tech up and agreed to fit a brand new gearbox under warranty. The car had not been altered in any way though.

    Charge cooling options?

    As far as I'm aware the only aftermarket option available is the Komotec package. SSC Aus have talked about their option which looks similar to the Lotus OEM in the 410 and 430, but seem to have gone quiet. It' a shame nobody can get access to the manufacturer Lotus uses for the 410 and 430.
  4. 1. Over standard discs and pads you can really feel them bite, create a lot more G under braking. Especially 6/8 laps in. On a recent trip to Spa it was 27c and had no brake fade at all, even with two in the car most of the time. 2. PF08 are very civilised, they are the fast road/track pad. I’ve not had any noise out of them, maybe a small squeal first few stops from cold.
  5. No special attention required. I swapped my bog standard steel Lotus discs for Seriously Lotus 343 kit, it comes with the required spacers and they don’t make any noise as far as I can tell. Combined with a good quality pad (I use Performance Friction 08) the stopping power is immense, with no fade whatsoever.

    Yes, providing you combine it with a decent suspension and tyre setup the difference is massive. Once you learn to lean on and trust the aero, you can really feel the stability, and the car is now planted in areas where it was previously stepping out. It’s fantastic round Spa.

    Hangar 111/KT EX370

    Has anyone combined the Komotec Intake with their Manifolds and cats and a remap? Do they increase noise as I still want to keep the same decibel level.
  9. They are epic. Although I went from stock Lotus solid discs. Will be replacing the rears this winter.

    Help / Advice

    Mine does that but usually when it does not have enough revs so is about to stall. It isn’t as loud as yours, and goes away once there are sufficient revs.
  11. looks to be this one.

    I picked a TVS1900

    Current choice is to go down @550superfast‘s route with the TVS1900 and some form of charge cooling to achieve a consistent 470bhp ish. Ideally using their all in one unit like the oem 430.

    Does anyone have any info on the Lotus 410/430 chargecooled engine? Would be good to see a diagram of where all the bits are situated. Is there any update on the Simply Sports Cars charge cooled kit?

    A journey into track days

    Rockingham is just under 2 hours from Weybridge so wouldn’t be too much longer for you. Good track, not to everyone’s taste but it’s great for improving technical driving. It’s pretty cheap too!

    Also Booked, let’s hope the weather isn’t too hot.....
