  1. I thought the air filter was standard. Then it makes sense.
  2. What is the lifetime of a such filter? In case I buy your system I would like to have an extra air filter so I can easily switch while I am cleaning the other one. So again, do you have a reference to provide? Thanks
  3. Hello alias23, Can you please indicate the reference of the air filter that is used? I have some limited technical skills and I wonder how this setup can affect the reliability of the engine especially the compressor? Could it accelerate engine/compressor wear? Thanks in advance for your reply.
  4. Gearbox oil changed to Motul 75W140 and went this morning on a track to do some testing... Alleluia!!! Problem solved! I did 30 laps and did not have any gear change issue. Today is a good day for me as I finally have the car performance that I was looking for many months now...
  5. Would be nice to have some pictures of the kit installed.
  6. I am sure you know what I meant when I replied to BfranklynV6
  7. The user manual specifically mentions that you can use your Lotus on track so why did they refuse the warranty application? Overrev?
  8. Unfortunately this is in direct contradiction to a sport/race car...
  9. Fuel cap leak! Known issue from anyone? It looks like the cap does not correctly stick to my car. I tried with another cap from an Elise Cup 250 and it sticks much better. I noticed the gasket was different. Does someone know where I can find another gasket to try? Thanks!
  10. Hello, Dealer did bleed the clutch and aligned again the gear cable. Unfortunately it did not solve the issue... I called another Lotus dealer who was aware of this issue and told me that changing the gearbox oil to Motul 75W140 fixed the issue for his customers. This will be the next step.
  11. Hello, Visit to the dealer booked for next week: clutch bleed + cable alignment scheduled. Will keep you posted.
  12. @Maxi_z I used Castrol srf and gearbox oil has also just been changed. My dealer asked for some guidance to Lotus. I'll keep you informed...
  13. I don't know about the oem cables. Will need to check with the dealer. Brake/clutch fluid has just been replaced.
  14. I can change gears without any issue when engine is cold. I experience the issue only after driving the car for 20-30 min intensively (on track). I have some concern regarding how the dealer will be able to properly re-adjust the cables if the car is not in track condition...
  15. @Gavin mckenzie did you solve your issue? My gear cables have just been changed and I still get the same issue than you. I suspect an adjustment is needed but I would like you to confirm how you solve your issue. Thanks!
