  1. Anybody looked at this for the S2? The article says that it is available for the platform. Later, Eldon
  2. You should get a set of these: It makes it so much easier to put the car in the air with a two post lift. These will work with the S3 chassis because they mounted without any problems to my Cup-R. Lift the car then remove the undertrays. Later, Eldon
  3. It is not always the physical time to shift gears but the loss of acceleration during the shift. With the C6X gearbox for the 2ZZ motor, it is not unusual to actually see the MPH drop during a gear change. When you look at data from a PDK, you will not see the shift points because MPH is not lost during the shifts. Later, Eldon
  4. As Jonny said, I am located in the USA. From what Jonny said, I would stick with a "Sessions" track day and not an "Open Pit Lane". That is why I strongly suggested that you speak to others that have run events with the group that you are thinking about attending with. Track Days are suppose to be a fun and safe way to experience your and the cars capabilities in a safe manner. Later, Eldon
  5. My wife runs in Novice class and enjoys driving the Exige at her pace. When we go to a new track, she gets an instructor to help her find the line. After going to the same track a few times, she will test to become a Solo driver but remains in Novice class. One thing most drivers forget about participating in a HPDE is that it is not about how fast you go but how well you play with others. Managing traffic is one of the most important things you need to learn while participating in a HPDE. This is a very important concept from both perspectives; the Passer and the Passe. Ask around and fi
  6. @geartoxWhat are you doing to the car? Later, Eldon
  7. I believe if you were able to dig in even deeper, you would find they even earned more than that. They have figured out that the political theater allows you to earn money, fund raising, with very little effort or cost. Then the way that the tax laws are laid out, you route the money from your campaign, which is heavy monitored, to a PAC that you control. Once the money reaches the PAC, reporting is lost and the money becomes freely accessible to do whatever you want with it. They were able to raise $250M from Nov 2020 to Jan 2021. Some of it went to the National Republican Committee
  8. @TexWhat is the color of your car? I'm trying to decide what green to wrap my Cup-R in. Thanks, Eldon
  9. I've seen two green colored Exige 430 Cups. The dark green metallic and the brighter green. They list three green colors: Isotope Green, Vivid Green and Racing Green. The reason I want to know the colors is that I'm trying to figure out what color to wrap the Cup-R in. Later, Eldon
  10. In the US, we cannot see these pages. Lotus has made their web site region sensitive. All we can see is the Evora and Evija pages. It SUCKS! Later, Eldon
  11. @Team LotusThanks for the response. Did you have protection film installed over the wrap? It sounds like you did what I have been told that a few people will do and makes the car look like it was painted. I'm really leaning towards a wrap but just haven't decided, yet. Thanks, Eldon
  12. Did you have the door seals, etc. wrapped, too? Did they remove the headlights, etc. ? I'm installing new clams on my Cup-R and I'm thinking about getting the wrapped instead of repainted. It looks like wrapping would be about half the cost of painting the car. Is that what you found? Thanks, Eldon
  13. I don't think Biden will die in office but I do not see him running for a second term. I see Harris becoming the next candidate but she will have to campaign for the nomination. Later, Eldon
  14. @andydclementsBelieve me, I am not defending or in favor of Trump. As I stated, most Presidents issue the majority of their pardons during their last month of term and definitely not until after their last term has started. So, using the length of time as a president as a factor I do not believe is a fair comparison. Later, Eldon
