  1. Interesting test. A few months back I contacted a friend in motorsport engineering, to put together a system with the Alu tubing (a la SSC and ITG box/filter. We never got round to fabrication but might look into it again. But will probably just go with the chargecooled TVS1900 setup.
  2. What engine oils have people experimented with? Any preference for track use? And any tips/tricks on DIY oil change at home. Will be my first time changing it myself on the Lotus.
  3. Eltech quality is very good. Never had a language problem with Matteo at Eltech.
  4. That looks like a very poor quality product. And very wide weave on the carbon which is usually cheaper and less time consuming to produce.
  5. I had this issue with stock discs and PF08, no issues since I swapped to the new bigger discs. As Jack mentions, bedding in properly is key to smooth braking on track.
  6. Are Back On Track offering this? Or just offering fitment through 2Bular. They are only about 20mins from me so would be helpful to get more info. SSC seem to be very quiet on all this, strange considering the time, effort and money they must of put in to develop the kit. (alongside Harrop and BOE).
  7. 100% makes a difference, did back to back laps at Spa in a friends stock 350 without wing vs. Mine with, and there is a big difference. (Same Nitron 3 way and ZZR tyres on both). Where the rear starts to squirm (especially through Pouhon and Blanchimont) you can feel the rear squat and press the tyres into the road.
  8. Matteo/Eltech are based in Italy so the shipping is pretty cheap to Europe/UK. The best method of contacting him is through the Facebook page.
  9. Matteo at Eltech offers a range of fantastic Carbon bits. I have the rear wing and front splitter, with intent to purchase the rear deck lid and front access panel in the coming months. He also offers the 380 style with which ever colour you wish.
  10. Seems reasonable at that price per performance gain. Is this exactly the same kit developed by SSC and offered by Hoffman’s?
  11. Want! Any idea who’s going to be offering this in the UK and when?
  12. Saw this at the Lotus 70th event. Appears to be a V6 club racer but with a new front clam with vents in.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Exactly @Bravo73 1. Pads - Performance Frction 08 2. Tyres Avon ZZR 3. Nitron 3 way 4. Eltech rear wing and Eltech front splitter. Next 5. Hangar111 EX430 kit
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. They are epic. Although I went from stock Lotus solid discs. Will be replacing the rears this winter.
  21. 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.
  22. https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p/itg-universal-aluminium-air-box-stab122-up-to-450bhp-stab122 looks to be this one.
  23. 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.
