  1. I am sure there is, only telling you to avoid one of them 😄 you might find more answers from the V6 group on facebook, many people tried a few different batteries there
  2. So I had thesame question 2 years ago, at the time I went for the antigravity, which was the one sold by the SSC partner. I would not recommend them, the one they recommended was probably too small, 420 amp I think, and then the ghost drain was crazy, the batery could not hold the charge for more than 2 days without bring unplugged. I am more annoyed by the service than the battery, what they promised when selling the battery was just not there, and I had nothing from their service after one year, when the battery would not hold the power for more than a day.... oh yes, and at that point they told me to buy the expensive Ctek charger because the one they sold me a year before was not powerful enough on the initial charging ? what ? at my cost ? Anyway, I guess the minimum required would be 600 ? I have the liteblox now, it is just reall good, and the fact that you can control it from your plhone is really good. These are the ones I have tried.
  3. Interesting, who is doing the job ?

    Nissan GTR

    Of course most of the people here will praise for the Lotus, we are here generaly for the same reasons. At the end of the day they such different cars, diffferent end of the spectrum, it should not be too hard to decide, just depends on what makes you connect more to a car, the use of it you want, the GTR is an engineering masterpiece, but where you sit a bit more as a spectator, but if this is what you are looking for, it is fine. I do not really get the comment about the money, because a 40k GTR will give you almost as much compare to a 80k GTR ? Same as the Exige market I believe. But if there is one point where there is no discussion, it is the maintening cost, I know people with GTRs, they are just way more expensive to maintain, and if they go wrong, it starts to get exponential, again this is not really a reason not to buy one, just a factor.
  5. Mine has some mod yes, but you must be talking about the one which had loads of mods and got sold for 52k ? ...
  6. I use mine mainly for the b road stuff, the 2 ways can do more than enough there, when you change the bump setting to the sofest setting, it is very soft ... but yes, a v6 cup should give you more drama in these conditions compare to a gt4 which would be very composed. Is that the car with the komotec kit ? And yes they should go up, they have sticking around the same price for a while, and the next Lotus probably won't be such a raw car, so the cup stuff is a good investment (and anyway, more enjoyable to drive than a standard v6)
  7. Is that the minimum quantity of WD40 to run a Mclaren for a week ? 😂
  8. Not an expert,but I think not as often as the S2, but they sometime crack on the v6 ? Either the tow link or something else next to it
  9. I had a look and could not locate this one, can you show where it is coming from maybe ?? The source of it might help.
  10. Same here, 2.5m wide, I get the car very close to the left side, and I can actually get in and out without any protection on the driver side, I mean I should but I never had a problem, also with 2.5m you can still walk next to the car or you know move stuff aside it ... so go for it !
  11. The good cars will sell, I bought mine that time of the year... but with covid, yes wait next spring ...
  12. This guy is well known for fixing many Lotus, he is proud of his work, so you can expect a good job
  13. 40k for a 2014 roadster is just crazy, there should not be any pre 350 roadster above 36k for sale. You would normally get the coupe from 37k I believe, these guys benefit of the fact that there is no cheap coupe for sale right now, but 40k anyway, way way too much.
  14. Anything recorded with an app from a phone will be wrong ..
  15. I am not sure to see in what case such an upgrade would make sense, maybe on a cheap used 430 cup, otherwise it is not worth it ...
  16. The other update about this project is that the car is for sale in germany, an healthy 170k euros ...
  17. I would chase possible over rev instead the mileage itself ..
  18. there are some cheap 410, I would go for that .. if you can afford new, probably do it, but I would not .. I believe this is brand new 350 money. Also there is nothin new between these used cars and the one you would get right now from factory. https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/exige-s3/exige-410-sport-3-5-2dr-coupe-manual-petrol/10343573
  19. Look at who is selling it, good luck to negotiate this one !! 😂
  20. No chance no, 45k would be a normal cup from a private seller, like the blue and yellow one lately, and even at that price they were advertised just for a couple of days ...
  21. I did not wanted to be rude but I think exactly the same, although the LF1 is a V6s with a nice color scheme ( also it does not celebrate a particularly successful era of Lotus), it is not worth more .. this is reflected in the used market, that LF1 for sale at silverstone, will dramatically drop in price before being sold .. and definitely, it is not worth more than any 350. I would buy a 350 and just paint things to make it like an LF1 if you really like than color scheme.
  22. I think these values are extremely optimistic ...
  23. I would like that spliter as well, but I feel like it is going to touch everywhere ... cool list though !
  24. Is there a point in buying them ? Did you guys notice some engine overheat on track ?
