  1. Vincent Haydon has a couple of interesting S2s at the moment...

    Hi Paul genuine originals are quite rare but come up now and again eg Ebay. Alternatives are a Paul Matty replacement or since its the spare and not on show a 5.5J x 13 minilite from Banks Service Station.
  3. Enjoyed that @GTK. ๐Ÿ‘ Wonder how stable the Europa is with a rear wing? - back in 1970 a magazine in the USA measured '55lbs' downforce at the rear already on a S2, the front (without spoiler) clocked 95lbs LIFT ๐Ÿ˜จ. Great to see it beat all the exotica ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Any one thinking of a classic trackday this year - don't seem to be too many options? I could go with this... or I could go with that...
  5. Absolutely fantastic! How did I miss it?! I was in the UK this week as well๐Ÿ˜ฉ
  6. Castle Combe: mine tested as 95 static, Cadwell: 94 static both at 4500
  7. Ian, there may be some confusion: The cam that acts on the ball and spring is secured by a nyloc nut and the thread/shaft for that is barely long enough to reach the 'end' of the nut when its tightened up - no roll pin there. The roll pin is on a different shaft and that is the one where you connect the gear linkage. Sorry if I've got the wrong end of the stick... or shaft ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  8. Would a scissor lift reach to the rear jack points or are you just lifting the front? Ramps sound like a better idea for whenever you don't need to get the wheels off or to start with to get the jack under. I use the low level ones from seriouslylotus - they are light and fit in the boot
  9. A great story. When you consider the names involved with the Europa TC and what they went on to achieve you can see the value of getting talented people together and letting them do their thing. It's sad that recently I generally don't get that feeling, hopefully that will change with Geely.
  10. @alias23I have just been informed that as a gesture of good will, Lotus will replace, it seems they do look after their customers after all and it gives me a chance to save up for an alternative!
  11. Here is an update: there is now, no trace whatsoever of catalyst on either cylinder bank ๐Ÿ˜ต. So, last question: is the flow through a single 200 cell/inch cat significantly better than the OEM cat which only handles half the gas flow - if you see what I mean? thanks in advance!
  12. Thanks Kristof, some good suggestions there I believe more information will be forthcoming next week whether its one or both cats Do you know what dB increase if any there is related to Larinis statement of 'volume increases with revs' Thanks Dave but the noise will probably be higher with the full system? A track day at Donington, that's what happened.
  13. Lets say (hypothetically of course) that you suffered an OEM catalyst failure and have the Lotus Sport exhaust silencer - what's the options in terms of a cost effective and more importantly noise neutral, replacement?
  14. Paul, this is nicely done:
