    Wanted - V6 Soft Top

    I've got an unused brand new one in it's proper carry case which I no longer have use for as I've sold the EX460. Will drop you a PM
  2. I carried out a lot of research on this subject and had a set of diamond cut BC Forged wheels made in the correct offset to run 285 on the rear and 215 on the front - Front 17x8 ET 22, Rear 18x10 ET 32. The fronts are 1/2 inch wider than both the Lotus motorsport forged/seriously lotus forged to be able to run a 225 tyre (although I have not tested 225). 285/215 cup 2s fit no problem with no rubbing. I've now got 5 sets of wheels (don't ask) and I will be listing these at circa £1850 (brand new - unused apart from a 5 mile road test) on the classifieds shortly - drop me a PM if you're inter
  3. I'm contemplating one of these for my new garage: (portable mid rise) I understood that the undertray always has to be removed before jacking on points B&C. Are you guys lifting the car at these points without the removing the undertray? @MartynB what scissor lift are you using?
  4. Had the same issue for a while and happened again this morning as I pulled in for fuel. Every time I switch off and on it resets, I too would be interested to know why and how to resolve.
  5. Shame that Dave at open track wouldn't reserve a couple of garages for all us, I think both I and @550superfast emailed him more than once. I'm hoping to stay at a hotel the night before so hopefully Arun and I can try and park the cars long ways in a couple of the garages! @Arun_D - will drop you a PM
  6. A very bad quality video of my 2nd trip to Spa, me attempting to chase @550superfast in his TVS 1900 towards the end of the video:
  7. I'm up for this as well, I'll speak to Dave @ Opentrack to see if he's happy to reserve a specific Lotus garage for us. Am I right in thinking that the following have booked?: @GFWilliams @Arun_D @550superfast @Dunc1 To confirm: @Trevsked @vd9 @mcx @alias23
  8. I'm popping it within one of the air vents for gearbox oil temp
  9. I've removed the rear clam, albeit with the help of a VW specialist mechanic. It took us approx 7 hours, I'm sure I sent you the service notes? Dealing with the battery and the loom was the most difficult issue from memory, the rest is just unscrewing the correct bolts. We had the gearbox oil cooler to deal with as well. Would be very interested to see if anyone has come up with a hinge solution??
  10. Sorry, wrong link:
  11. I'm fitting one of these which will be in the car for our Spa trip @550superfast, will be interesting to compare temps:
  12. I don't want to steer to far away from Lotus specs and following the advice here (thanks all) I've decided to go for 10J 32 offset rear (same as CUP 380) and 8J up front, just haven't decided on the offset for the front wheel. Both front and rear centre drop. This should allow me to run 285 on the rear as per the CUP 380, a bit risky running 225 45 17 up front but I'll give it a go, hence needing to make the right call on the front offset.
  13. Found this: data .pdf
  14. Thanks Imran, you have PM. Anyone know the offset/width on the Cup 380 rear wheels?
