  1. Elise 220 --> 250 Cup How?

    This is what you need. There are parts required. I'm considering having it done myself once the warranty has expired.
  2. Supercharger belt replacement?

    My car is due for its 2nd year service next April and will probably only have covered 6k miles so i was wondering the same thing. I plan to take it to Allon White and on their website it says every 2 years. Seems a bit excessive for a belt although I do know it sees more action due to the running of the supercharger.I will be asking if it does really need to be changed if still in good condition. I do know that they can start to squeal when they are on the way out but that sometimes can be the tensioner not tensioned properly? Matt

    Someone got a good shot of mine from the roadside at the St Neots PH meet last month. Thiught I would share. 😎
  4. Hand built in Hethel... Who built yours?

    I'm sure I could find out who built mine and try and get one to fit. Not sure it would really make the car anymore special. Its a Lotus, its special already.
  5. Hand built in Hethel... Who built yours?

    I have a 2016 Elise Cup and don't have a name plaque in mine. They must of given up with the idea as I'm sure the car is built by more than one person.
  6. Sent you a message Rob. I still have them. Cheers Matt
  7. I have 2 tickets available if anyone needs them. No parking pass though. £20 the pair. Can collect at he circuit as I am still going. Cheers Matt
  8. Speccing a 250 Cup

    No problem. Just make sure they use a matte version as the normal glossy version doesn't look very good.
  9. Speccing a 250 Cup

    Just a word of warning. If you want to keep the bodykit looking good then seriously consider having the front splitter and rear arch aero pods stonechip protected with tape. I bought a year old 220 Cup with 4500 miles on the clock and the pods were knackered. I had to repaint them and apply a matte stonechip tape. I also edged them in a small gauge rubber edging too. They went from this... To this.... Also so consider having the front end and Sills Armourfended too. This car had been done but not the upper part of the front end. I have managed to touch in the 5 stonechips I had and have got the cut section of tape to cover it. Should be bulletproof after that.

    I'm planning a trip to this one as I've never been before. See you there Chris.

    That's Paul from the Club Lotus Cambs group. They were there with a stand at the weekend.

    Welcome Paul. I look forward to meeting up with you at some point. I think we have a few people around the MK/ Bedford area to get a proper meet going.
