    S1 rear lamp bulb holder

    MOT and roadworthiness are the same to me... easier to check with an MOT
  3. Hi all, I need to get my S1 MOT'd and it has failed on a rear light fault. The bulb holders in the unit are corroded and one has been melted slightly. All lamp holders in the unit look to be the same. They are marked 98.0002.775. any ideas where I could get them or has anyone fitted an alternative? The complete lighting cluster ... (which is ok although the silver paint is a bit worn) is Fiat X1/9 and has the part number Carello 12.217.748 (Made in Italy) Thanks Gordon
  4. Can anyone tell me what the blower fan from an Elise is from.... if its not Lotus specific that is? Any suppliers and part numbers would also be good. Thanks
  5. Hi folks, Only one response back for this so far. I will leave it open for a couple of weeks (Friday 19 May) and then return anything we have in to GTM as the LEGS entry for this year. If you want to apply for entry, the application form is on the post above and you can return it to me and I will put them in together, after that, please send your entries directly to GTM. Thanks Gordon
  6. Thanks for your help guys, he has a good selection of responses. From Fraser: “Can you say thanks to everyone for their help Dad. I have had a good response and don't need any more now. There are varied views so there is plenty to discuss. Cheers Fraser” Thanks again. Gordon
  7. Hi folks, My son has to hand in his University thesis on “Branding in football” this week and he is low on responses to his online survey…… any chance you could spare a few minutes to fill it in please. It doesn’t ask for your e-mail address or any other personal information. Thanks very much for your help!
  8. Entries for this years SpeedFest are now being collected. I have let the museum know we will be providing a range of cars again via LEGS That usually gets us a bigger bite of the cherry than entering one by one for some reason (and they do like LEGS based on the events we have put on for them in the past). They have limited places available and they make a selection out of the entry forms they receive. If you have already entered, can you let me know ... if possible with a copy of your entry form and I will let them know they are all LEGS cars. If you haven't entered so far and would like to, please fill out the attached form and send it back to me. There are limited places and there is no guarantee your car will be selected but its a good day out whether you are showing your car or just attending. For anyone who hasn't been, this gives an idea of the kind of thing that goes on...... with a bias on the LEGS input: SpeedFest_Entry Form_2017 (2).pdf

    Weight of S1 gearbox and courier service

    ok thanks guys.... I was thinking it would be a bit lighter but perhaps im wrong. Any recommendations for courier, seems like they choke at that sort of weight?
  10. Hi folks. Can anyone tell me what the weight of an S1 gearbox with the bell housing would be please? Also looking for a decent courier who wouldn't charge the earth to ship it from Aberdeen down to Northampton.... any idea of cost? Thanks

    Esprit Active Suspension Car

    That was Mikes retirement. There must have been some better pictures but that was the only one that I managed to get a hold of.

    Esprit Active Suspension Car

    When we were at the “100 Esprit's Event” at Hethell, Brian asked if he could borrow 100G for a couple of months to do the suspension program for the S1 / S2's The few months turned into 5 years and as Bibs says they got to the point where Lotus wouldn't commit to "pushing the button" and getting the springs and dampers manufactured as sales items. I am very fortunate to have the development set on my car. I remember seeing the Active Suspension car when I was visiting the factory once. It was through at the stair well and my car was in the reception. I'm not sure if I have any pictures of it from that visit but I will have a look. 100G was used for various displays while it was there and also spent a period in the design studio, (apparently as a source of inspiration) and It was used as a backdrop when MJK retired. I also managed to get a few pics of it outside what used to be the front of the factory where the orange S1 was pictured.

    Virtual desktop?

    Im sure this has been asked before.....somewhere.... but has anyone ever managed to get this working on an iPad?
  15. Morning guys, The dreaded GT3 ABS warning light is on again, this time it starts flashing then goes solid and then the handbrake light comes on solid as well. The pressure switch is sticking on the pump.... a calibrated thwak with a hammer sorts the issue but not something I want to drive with over any distance so I am going to have to pull out of the Breakfast Club on Sunday. Shame because it sounded like a good one..... hope we can do it again next year. Have a good day guys. Gordon
