  1. I just run the inertia belt around the back of the seat and clip it in "backwards" ( so the buckle is pointing to the centre console ) when I'm on track - easier than taking the seat out
  2. SSC also has manifold, CAT and back box options ...
  3. @geartox I would be ok to develop that, basically software upgrades should no issue if AIM take it serious and commit to getting it to work. If yes then I will order one, hopefully in two parts so I can get it leather covered correctly as I really want to keep an OEM look and feel.
  4. @geartox Many thanks for this, let’s see if they can add the TCU telltale. For the ATF temperature it seems the Toyota sensor is rated to 130 degree C and max temperature is 110 C before telltale might be lit.
  5. @geartox maybe we are not supposed to see the real temperatures 😉 Seriously I can do without the buzzer but I have experienced the TCU lamp coming on a couple of times due to some communication error with the ECU .. easy reset the codes but obviously having no warning would have taken longer to find it.
  6. There is no TCU warning light on the AIM dash is there ? Also no warning buzzer for any IPS errors. That is one of the main reasons I have not changed, how would you know you have a TCU issue ? For supposed plug and play it’s still not OEM standard.
  7. What I meant is I used to start the engine and immediately turn the DPM to sport and a few times that caused the issue you have seen. Now I wait a few seconds after I have started before I move the DPM switch and have never had that issue again. I have also had to change the brake switch twice but typically that just brings up the traction control lamp and puts limp mode on. When that has happened for me I’ve turned engine off and back on again and system is back to normal for a while and is always triggered by pressing the brake pedal. With the DPM switch issue the warning lamp
  8. Thanks for that, good to know I’m not the only one 🙂 I will move switches to the lower column/use an Omega Wiper column stalk and fill in the holes in the cover. I have a second original binnacle and hope to cut the “dimples” curved sections off and thin them out to cover the Aim version. The leather cover remains the concern and knowing its in two parts helps, I hope I can get them supplied “unglued”
  9. I really want to go for this dash but the binnicle is the main stumbling block, it would stick out something horrible with the rest of the leather pack, I want to keep an OEM look as much as possible. The Lotus leather on the binnicle cover is applied before the two halves of it are glued together - is the AIM version also designed/manufactured in same way ? If yes, possible to get the two parts from AIM before its assembled ?
  10. I had that exact same happen a couple of times in my Exige Auto .. it happened when switching DPM modes as soon as engine was fired up a couple of times - I was told its because the ECU and TCU didnt communicate correctly. Cleared the codes and it was fine and now I wait a couple of secnds before turning the DPM switch - no issues since ( except the usual brake switch one 🙂 )
  11. - Remote button option ( makes covering binnacle easier and more OEM ) This is not clear to me. Where would you install remote buttons? Please, don’t forget the installation is supposed to be very easy and fast. In the lower column shroud - I guess more the point is can the usual momentry type buttons be used - if yes then I can sort it myself Specific for Auto - "Gear" alarm ( for TCU ) This is not clear to me There is a TCU alarm on Automatics ( its a gear shaped Icon on the Lotus display ) - needs to be duplicated on Aim in case o
  12. I understand the idea of a "plug and play" solution but it would be good to offer the option of remote buttons. They could be located in the lower column shroud.
  13. Ability to change rev limit from 9K to 8K (or to 7.5K, to make even better usage of the screen width) - Tell tale light for Cruise Control (use space from second "dipped lights on") - Real time view of sensor information on dash - Airbag delete light setting option (Ok on Cup cars) - Option for Carbon Binnacle - Option for Alcantara Binnacle (with same Alcantara as 410/430 vent surrounds which are just next to the binnacle, without stitch, or with option to choose stitch color to mimic each car's configuration) - Why two lights for "dipped lights on" only one need
  14. Thanks that makes sense having now read the manual, as you can select sequential transmission in the gear menu.
