  1. @Gekko the great from where did you sourced the new HRT exhaust?
  2. Congratulations WayneG for the new V6. The color is fantastic and in my opinion one of the best for the Exige. I have an IPS as well and I am so happy about the gearbox. Even on track is permorfiming very well and you will not miss the manual gearbox.
  3. We need all to be honest I think. When you read an article or you see a comparison video and your car is not the fastest one you get a little bit disappointed. But you need to think about the smile the car stamp on your face every time you drive it. I found on track the cars advertised in the video but I didn't saw any of them passing me๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  4. Thanks Arun_D for your feedback. Yes you are right part of the issue are the brake pads. I think with the brake upgrade kit and the brake ducts I will solve the issue. Especially here in Qatar where the temperatures of the evening track days during the season range from 20 C to 30/32 C
  5. The power of the brake is not an issue because they are sized correctly. But after some hard laps (3/4) they start to vibrate due to the heat. I am always doing 2 cooling down laps and seems to be fine but is really annoying that after few hard laps they start to vibrate. I will upgrade in the near future the brakes with the system offered by Dave of Seriously Lotus. That look fantastic and for sure they will improve the driving experience. To help to keep everything cool as much as possible I was thinking to install the brake ducts. In my opinion is a good solution to improve the life of the brakes. I am looking for a kit but seems to be there isn't available at the moment.
  6. If I will find a kit I will inform you but seems that no one developed a kit until now.
  7. Hi guys, I was thinking to install in the car brake cooling ducts to help the front brakes during hard times. Anyone installed them? There is a kit available somewhere? Thanks in advance
  8. Yes Imran. The area is a little bit tight but if the problem is with the connector like me they can fix it without removing the clam. You need a mechanic with small hands๐Ÿ˜‚ If the problem is related to another component you will need to remove the clam Was the electrical connector
  9. Ciao Imran, i had the same issue last Thursday coming back from a track day. Exactly like you. Saturday I visited the dealer. We checked all the fuses in the front and rear fuse boxes but they were all ok. At the end the problem was the electrical connector of the blower that was faulty. You can have access from the front access panel and removing the grill and plastic sorround.
  10. Amazing sound and great track!!!
  11. Post some videos of your track days if you have availables. Depends how the switch is faulty. If it is really really gone/damaged the brake switch you can not even change gear from P to D. Anyway if you connect the car with the OBD port you can identify easily the problem. I had twice to change the brake switch. The first time I was getting the gearbox light on the dashboard and the second time I was getting all the controls off without the possibility to use the DPM
  12. Most probably is the brake switch to be changed. The IPS gearbox have originally fitted the gearbox oil cooler so to overheat it you need a lot of effort. I had the same signal once on my car last year and I changed the brake switch that was faulty.
