    Lotus Exige Cup 430

    @mark248am the factory button works fine on normal mode which is the only mode I use for the streets. Now that I have something to plug charger side with for track duty it literally takes less than a minute to do so and I can have the value always open on any mode. Had I not invested in the factory button I would have gone for the komotec remote option I think.
  2. I have a 430 cup with titanium exhaust. I feel like @Dan.G has mentioned that it has a higher pitch than the standard box. Which sounds better? I honestly can't tell the difference at times. In regards to the button, I've had mine post factory fitted with the exhaust valve button at the dealer (they ordered the part from the factory and had to enable it in the ECU). Downside is the button only works in normal mode. On track I'm always driving on race mode so I had to resort to plugging the vacuum line on the supercharger side. It literally takes less than a minute to do so and I don't mind it at all. Sure a button would be more convenient. However, I don't drive on the streets except with normal mode anyway and the button works perfectly at that. I wouldn't let the ability to not be able to remotely enable the exhaust be an issue as you can easily overcome this minor flaw or go to komotec for their remote operated valve control.

    I think I may have the same issue with my car. Can you take a picture of this part? Currently I don't have any plastic pieces there and I've taken the front access panel off a couple of times I suspect I may have the same issue.
  4. @razad for sharing! I've sent your specs to my dealer and they're going to attempt to do this tomorrow.
  5. Do you mind sharing your full geo settings? Also, were you able to get that on stock components?
  6. You can have them in either leather or alcantara (no additional cost) Mine are alcantara

    I just took my 430 on track and it was quite annoying not being able to hear the exhaust when most needed. Blipping the throttle for heel n toe was a silent affair and with so many noisy cars around you I had to look at my rpm gauge just to make sure I actually blipped the throttle. I tried this mod on my second session, and for some reason it threw the rpm way off. It would read 9k rpm when I'm actually at 4k. I pulled in the pits again and reattached the hose again. On my last session I decided to try it again and for some reason this time it worked perfectly. Thank you for the tip!
  8. Congrats on the ride! In regards to the rubber under the front lip, i have it on my 430 cup. I noticed it's not there on the 410 for some reason (at least on the press photos they did) - not sure why. It is quite lower than that of the 380 cup though, it scrapes everywhere. I feel the same way about radio
  9. My issue was more or less the same I guess. I was told my coolant reservoir was slowly leaking - causing higher water temps in stop go traffic and very poor a/c performance. Had I taken it to track I would have probably gone into limp mode as well. Lotus sent a replacement and all is good now.

    I never owned a 380 so I can't relate. However, there is definitely no pops and bangs that are noticeable. OEM exhaust switch as others have mentioned only works in normal mode (which is a shame, but better than nothing I guess).

    @AlphaZ Hi. The dealer needs to run the lotus software to "enable" the flap. A dealer visit is a must. Also, my dealer has confirmed to me that the exhaust button only works on normal mode. On sport and race mode, it is back to original ecu controlled even though the button is pressed. I'm collecting the car tomorrow and will see for myself.

    I haven't picked up my car yet after the 1000km service+another issue I had, but they installed my exhaust button. Once I get it sometime next week I'll report on the sound (pops) + if it works on all modes. For now they sent me this: VID-20180718-WA0034.mp4

    Interesting you say it doesn't work on all modes @Tex. I'm getting mine installed sometime next week so I'll update on my part. Question about the towing eye - I assume from the new placement of the plates on the 430 that you can't have it on while the plate is there. Is that correct?
  14. Dont know why that's happening but hope u get it resolved soon! No check engine light? On a side note, I'm curious what water temps you are seeing on track. I will be taking my car on track in a few months and the ambient temperatures should be similar to yours now (33-38c)
