  1. Are all Evoras E10 compatible or just the newer ones?
  2. I need my car transported from my home in Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire to ES Motorsport in Fritton, Norwich. Can anyone recommend a car transportation company to trailer the car over for me.
  3. I'm also insured with Classic Line with an agreed value for my Evora. I had to send pictures of the car and a list of reasons to support my valuation and any receipts to show proof. They were more than happy with the information I supplied and it didn't take me too long to collate the information. I recently renewed with them again and as my car's valuation hasn't changed they are happy to take the previous valuation and I didn't have to send in the supporting material again.
  4. DCT could be the box from Jubu Performance? Similar for the higher tuned engines with the non standard internals?
  5. Totally agree with this. If you want to take further still, next stage would be to add a CAI, adds an extra level to drama without making it too loud.
  6. Not a great quali for Red Bull. I think Red Bull are going to have to think hard about strategy. It’s probable that Max can get in front of Bottas at the start but not very likely to get past Hamilton too unless he does a kamikaze move at turn 1. Gonna be an exciting start., looking forward the the race.
  7. Interesting video regarding industrial vehicles:
  8. Thank you guys some good leads to chase up. Totally forgot about the Beaconsfield Workshop! I’ll give them a call first and keep Castle and Hoffman’s as backups.
  9. If you want a rough idea on how the touring and sport setups will differ. Try and get a ride in an Evora S1 NA and Evora 400. I imagine the difference between Emira's touring and sport setups will be something vaguely similar. The NA version is more softly sprung and makes for a great road car as it absorbs the bumps very well and keeps the car tracking the road better. The 400 version is stiffer and has different geometry as it was designed to be a slightly more aggressive car compared to the previous version. I've asked a few places about suspension geometry and damper upgrades for my Evora and each time I'm told because I use the car as a daily driver with the occasional track day the standard set-up from Lotus is pretty hard to beat unless I go for fully adjustable Ohlins. Just goes to show how good Lotus's suspension setup is, even when I try to spend at a garage they refuse because they're not sure they can do a better job. A track setup would be a different story and there is much room for change here. If you are passing by South West Herts you a welcome to sit in my NA Evora and try out the suspension.
  10. Thanks, have used them before and had good experiences. Still a little far from me but could be an option if I get recorded very truck to transport the car. I was really after somewhere a lot more local, was hoping there would a good independent car garage that people use not necessarily a Lotus specialist.
  11. Thank god the fisty cuffs and handbags have stopped and they can get back to racing! It was getting a bit silly! Only to let Noris take all the points and take the WDC win!!! 😂🤞🏾
  12. My Lotus Evora is a little sick, has a rough idle and is slow and lazy to rev up. No warning light on the dash but its definitely not running right. I normally take my car to be serviced by ES Motorsport but they are very busy with racing at the moment and not able to look at the car for a while. I'm also not sure of driving all that way on an engine that is not running cleanly. So wondering where you lot take your cars to get serviced and repaired in the hope of finding somewhere nearby. I live in Hemel Hempstead but anywhere in the South Herts / North London area will do. Many thanks, Jai
  13. You know there are some crazy wealthy people that commission 1 off designs from Ferrari and Lambo based on their existing platforms. Maybe one of those folks will come along and ask Lotus to stick one of Cosworth's amazing V12 engines (T50 or Valkyrie) into the Evija! And then maybe I will try and squeeze into a tight fitting pencil dress and high heels and seduce one of those people and run away with the car!
  14. Yes its called sticky tape! 😉 I think there is an override that stops the sport mode being enabled on a cold engine. I've not tried pressing it on a cold engine, so I don't know if sport mode is enabled but revs are still limited until the engine is warm or if you have to reenable sport mode once engine has some heat? I doubt the Lotus software has an option to always enable sport mode. But maybe someone like Komotec who have cracked the Lotus ECU encryption could reprogram the throttle map for you? And certainly if you use an aftermarket ECU like the SCS Delta in my car that can be programmed with what ever throttle map and rev limiter you want.
  15. oooff my knees have gone weak at the thought of that! 😍
