  1. Thanks, I really want to get to the bottom of the problem. It's driving me round the bend!
  2. Another great track day at Goodwood was on the cards this morning until I caught a serious bout of the 'Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious'. They say bad luck comes in threes... 1. I had yet another engine/electrical cut out - coming out of the first right hander after the main straight under power, the car just died without warning (engine, lcd dash and all electrics cut). I coasted to a standstill just off the track and turned the green battery cut-off switch off and on again. The car came back to life! This is now the fourth track day in a row that this has happened to me. It's seriously
  3. At Goodwood motor circuit today. Noise reading (static) was 100db at 4,800rpm. The track day was 105db. I received one warning for noise on the drive-by test along the start/finish straight in the first session.
  4. Today was the first time I had the 3-Eleven with the Jaguar XKR-S GT. You couldn't get two more different performance cars if you tried: the scalpel and the hammer! The 3-Eleven is going into storage for a few weeks after recently enduring a number of track days and long weekend blasts (during which it performed faultlessly). Time though for some proper tlc before its next exploits...
  5. Happy co-incidence but we're good chums now!
  6. A great day too for the 3-Eleven team thanks to Bell & Colvill!
  7. I'll be at the B&C track day this Thursday at Castle Combe. Anyone else going? I'll be in the 3-Eleven. And I'll try not to run out of fuel this time
  8. The Lotus 3-Eleven is now down to receive this Hangar 111 (Komo-tec) engine upgrade in October: 455-465bhp versus 405-410bhp and 395lbs/ft versus 315lbs/ft.
  9. Looking forward to meeting you and your Elise Sport 220 too Keith. I'm not quite as quick in the 3-Eleven this year having broken my ankle at the end of last. Excuses, excuses...! Fingers crossed for dry weather on 10th May.
  10. That's exactly what happened to me, only I fell just short of the petrol station!
  11. I was on a 100db day with LoT and the 3-Eleven came out at 96db, which was a big relief. I've delayed the Komo-tec 475bhp upgrade with Hangar 111 until October so I'm still running stock
  12. So, the first track day of the year in the 3-Eleven at Castle Combe with 'Lotus on Track' last week did not start well: having returned home the night before the track day after a long business trip I found there was no life in the car. It quickly became apparent that the battery had died after I failed to click the kill switch before I left the country. But those nice chaps at Lotus Bell & Colvill (B&C) in West Horsely, Surrey sent round a technician who quickly identified a small button behind the battery that woke it from its hibernation. Phew! The 3-Eleven has also been treat
