  1. After a few years where my life was turned upside down, I thought I'd try to start up my annual New Years morning drives again. Hit some local twisty's out to the countryside while it seems everyone else was sleeping-in or nursing hangovers.
  2. No work done on the car. Still stock. But she sat for quite some time due to covid. I’ll give that a go. Thank you for taking the time to reply!
  3. Hey guys, hoping someone can help. My Exige is doing this: Temp will drop and cold temp light will turn on after several minutes of driving. Up and down... Happens when cornering too. I had brought the car in to SSC in Sydney to take a look, and they ended up burping the system, and it was ok for about a week. Then it started again. Has anyone else experienced this? Anything I can check at home before taking the car back to SSC after the new year?
  4. @GFWilliams I have heard from SSC that they are engineering a full custom retrofit linkage that looks the same as the linkage from the 410/430 for the earlier exige v6's. So that could be another option in the future.
  5. So, before buying my Exige 410 the Porsche 997 GT3 was on my shortlist. Yesterday I came across a 997 GT3 RS on the track. Here's the video! Note: dive bombing pre corner is strictly not allowed during these sessions. Would've gotten past sooner otherwise!
  6. Another pic. Went to chase a sunrise on Saturday but was foiled by the clouds. Then today got to meet up with Martin and a few others at Sydney Motorsports Park South Circuit. Friendly bunch, and it seemed well organised and pretty chill. Will definitely look at joining the next day at SMSP North! (Hmmm, are all my pics loading for everyone, or are they not showing up on these posts? I just noticed a bunch weren't, then I refreshed and then they popped up.)
  7. I'm hoping to get Bart Mawer. My partner had lots of time on the track with him, and I've watched back the incar video and listened to what he's saying. She improved massively after he was in the car with her.
  8. A few pics I've taken of my Sport 410:
  9. Hey there. I'm booked in for a couple. I can't wait :).
  10. Up at 4:30am this morning unable to sleep. So I went for a drive and took a photo. link to a pic without the weird compression
  11. Hardest thing will be getting in and out. Once you're in though you'll be fine.
  12. Here's a short clip of my wife and I out on track. I think one of us has an unfair advantage.
  13. Wow! That would be a lot of fun. That said, I honestly don't think it needs more power...yet. R spec rubber, and a vbox to help tune me to the car would definitely cut down lap times significantly.
  14. Lots of the guys from the Porsche Club came over to have a look and ask a few questions between each session. Lots of people commented on how it looked and sounded on track, many were shocked when I mentioned everything was stock from the factory.
  15. I'm disappointed that I couldn't get to SMSP today to say Hello. One of my friends from the Porsche Club knows you. He told me that he knows of a car similar to mine that lives near him. I was telling him the story of how I drove a laser blue 2013 Exige V6 S that I was about to buy instead of my car, but didn't due to some unexpected health issues coming about. I think you might know the car pretty well It was sold while I was sick. But it worked out for the best. When I saw it was sold I emailed Lee, and after a few phone calls with Lee, and more emails I ended up with the Sport 410. Congrats on the PB! I was checking Natsoft throughout the day. I was taking it easy (it was only the 3rd time I had driven the car and the 1st time at the track) and was surprised at running consistent 1:50 (when out of traffic) around GP circuit yesterday. It also became a hot day. These cars are amazing. I'm itching to get out on track again so I can start to push. I definitely want to meet up and talk Lotus with you.
