  1. Wow, great car, great upgrades!!! Seriously, love it!!
  2. Yep, same target pressure of 2 bar for front and rear tyres on track. Went to Bilster Berg a few days ago. It's a quite twisty little track with 4.2 km length in northern Germany. Some call it the small Nordschleife, because it got a lot of up and downs and some blind corners. While driving continuously a bit faster for about 30 min and starting with warmed up tyres at 2 bar the Trofeo R did increase in pressure to 2,3 bar max. Lost about 1,5 mm of profile depth on the rear tyres in about 2,5 hours of driving on that day.
  3. On Track - if the tyres are warmed up - 2 bar or 29 psi for front and rear tyres. Street driving i go for 2.1 bar (30 psi) front and 2.3 bar (33 psi) rear. Hasta ahora yo no útilizo espaciadores para usar Trofeo R en 295
  4. I use Trofeo R with 225 on front and 295 on the rear since autumn last year. They work fine on track and are to my opinion more predictable than toyo R888R for example. lap time-performance even used 235 on the front for driving on the Nürburgring Nordschleife with an Exige 380. Usually the 225 / 295 combination doesn't rub while driving on the streets. A pro racing driver told me recently, that 1 cm more tyre width means about 1 sec lap time on a circuit about 5 km length. In comparison to the Michelin Cup 2 the Trofeo R is quite expensive, but personally i think it's got a slightly higher grip level. It's up to ur own if u think it's worth the higher price.
  5. Hi Paul, yes, when i changed to forged wheels + Nitron 1 way i did go for Toyo Proxes R888R. Until now i tested the P Zero corsas, Michelin PS4, Toyos R888R, Nankang AR1 and Pirelli Trofeo R. From these i got the most confidence in Trofeo R. Michelin Cup 2 i didn't try until now, mainly because i was told it works better on heavier cars + on a few trackdays i did see several cases of minor damage to the tire topping if driven seriously on lighter cars like an Alfa 4C or a seriously tuned Subaru Impreza for example. The reason for Nitron 3 way is the hope for slightly higher limit in corners - kind of a security aspect .
  6. Thx for this Information Wilbert. Until now gears don't pop out in my 5 year old Exige V6 with > 50k km, but 1. and 2. gear make a squeaking noise, when selected. Komo-Tec told me similar. Could be that parts of the gearbox might be worn out (claws - was told they are out of softer material and not made for engaging gear in higher revs).
  7. Did upgrade the suspension of my standard V6S about 2 years ago to Nitron 1 ways in combination with the forged wheels from team dynamics, who produce the lotus stock forged wheels. It was quite an experience. The turning in to the curves was telepathic compared to the standard suspension and the reaction to the gas was more immediate. No more understeer. However didn't do any measurements to get numbers for acceleration. At higher speeds at the autobahn the car is a bit more nervous, especially under braking if the road has a bad surface/tarmac. At the moment im going to change to 3-way Nitrons.
  8. Untill now no problems with the EX460 kit on stock internals. Did about 5 trackdays last year. Car has about 50.000 km.
  9. Does anyone know if there will be a full hd version of the smarty cam soon?
  10. What about a real carbon binnacle and not a fake one ... This plastic thing really looks cheap... for about 1700 € ?!
  11. Dave, do u know if it´s possible to add a second camera additional to a front facing smartycam to the AIM MX2E dash, which will record another view - for example rear view or driver? Goal would be to get a picture in picture video like in circuit tools with VBOX HD2.
  12. It´s released !! https://www.komo-tec.com/en/detail/index/sArticle/685 Not cheap, but still wow ... wonder how drivable the package is.
  13. Do u guys know if the AIM MX2E is compatible to the EMU black ECU, too?
