  1. I found these GPS08 modules in the US. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/aag-s0068 Later, Eldon
  2. Yes, there is enough room. One of the race shops here in the US was modifying the Evoras and V6 Cups to get more camber via this method. They were getting 3 degrees without a problem. Later, Eldon
  3. @tactical lizardAnother option for the rear is to change out the plate on the rear to allow the eccentric bolt to produce more camber. By doing this, you can get to the -3 degrees that you are after. You can fabricate a new plate with different left and right sides which will move the location of the bolt. Just drill out the pop-rivets and create a new plate out of some similar metal. Later, Eldon
  4. I do not believe that 140K+ is too high for a Cup FE. If you think that is too high, you need to find a different car to import. Do you even have a good grasp of what it will cost to fit a car with side impact airbags to a car that is NOT built for them? If not, you need to find another project. Later, Eldon
  5. If the cost to bring the car up to spec is in the low 5 digit range, you may have a good chance. If is starts to approach the mid 5 to 6 digit range, it would not be worth it. Also, how many of the same cars can be imported for the same reason? Later, Eldon
  6. When I was in Hethel, I wanted a 430 Cup-R and the production manager told me it would be cheaper to buy a 311-R and a 430 Cup. I would love to have a 430 for the street but what is the requirements to make it legal for "Display and Show"? If you have to make it pass EPA, that would not be hard since the Evora passes EPA. If you have to make it pass DOT safety, you might as well forget it. The cost is too high. Later, Eldon
  7. When these type of cars are brought in to the US, paper work is signed that you acknowledge that it will be for track use only. When Lotus brings these cars to the US, the owners sign paperwork that acknowledges that these are track only cars. Anyone who licenses a 211 or an Exige V6 S are doing it the state level and not the federal level. If the Feds wants to, they can seize the car with no recourse and crush it. Later, Eldon
  8. Yes, I have been following the thread on LotusTalk. I already have a Cup-R so I know about importing a vehicle. Later, Eldon

    The announcers said that Merc had optioned to run with the inertial sensor installed and the light from that. It weights like 1.5 Kg so most teams don't run it for qualifying and the race. Later, Eldon

    In a lot of other racing groups they use bump stops that prevent the car from going any lower. I use them on the front shocks of my Cup-R to keep the from splitter from stalling. Maybe their rules do not allow this, I do not know. It is a common problem and most teams, as long as the rules allow, use this method. Later, Eldon
  11. The rule of thumb is that higher octane fuel in a motor, not built for it, will typically reduce the horse power. As mentioned, higher octane fuel actually burns slower thus creating lower cylinder pressure. I run higher octane fuel on the track not for the HP increase but to make sure that I do NOT have detonation issues which can cause very catastrophic results. I believe the V6 motors have a knock sensor which will back timing off if detected thus reducing HP. Later, Eldon

    It definitely was the show that we want to watch at each race. Good racing through the field showing that maybe they got the regulations correct. Curious as to what is it going to take get both drivers from the teams racing for the win. Later, Eldon

    I think you are going to see Max find out that Charles is NOT going to be an easy pass. Remember when Max slammed Charles off the track? I'm sure Charles has not forgotten it! Later, Eldon
  15. Out of curiosity, where did you get the CF clams? Thanks, Eldon

    I really think it comes down to a trust issue. He made a decision to allow the lapped cars by but did not carry out the complete rule of letting all of the lap cars by. If he had done this, I believe it would not have looked as bad. I've seen many races effected by late caution flags that ends up with the fastest car not winning the race. I am fine with that. That is Lady Luck. What I did not like is that the rule of unlapping cars was only partially followed. This is where he made his "Big Mistake". This is where he has lost the trust of doing the correct action with no thought of bias. Later, Eldon
  17. Happy Birthday @C8RKH 🤩
  18. Mine was done by a shop in the UK. Maybe if you call around you might find one that has done V6 Cup-R. Did you try asking Bosch if they have the numbers for an Exige V6 Cup-R? Later, Eldon
  19. @Cup250Ondrej, Sorry, I do not have the lengths either since I did not install the system in my car. I would think that if you reach out to your Bosch rep that Bosch would have these numbers from another Lotus installation. Some of the numbers are going to be specific to where you want to mount the modules. Also, the car/wheel measurements are going to be specific to your car model. Later, Eldon

    @C8RKH& @pete Guys, Please stop the personal attacks. You both have brought interesting conversation to this thread. Everybody is entitled to their opinion because it is their opinion. When emotion gets involved, your opinion has less meaning. I have seen other threads devolve in to this type of back and forth and it really hurts both persons creditability. In the US, we have had to put up with this type of conversations since a certain President has managed to polarize conversations that shouldn't be polarized but discussed. This polarization has started to effect almost all topics of discussion because that is becoming the norm. I come over hear to discuss F1 because there is intelligent discussion and opinions are respected. Have a Great Day, Eldon

    Unfortunately, you have to have Lady Luck on your side in order to win. Max has seemed to have that a lot this year. I have seen many races not won by the fastest car or the car leading before a late yellow flag. It is a heartbreak for MB and LW but it is racing. I'm not to sure about that last call to only let half the field but I do not think they will let the results be changed. Later, Eldon
  22. I have the same dash in my S260 and it is nice. I'm surprised that you say that you received good tech support because most of us have a really difficult time getting tech support. Later, Eldon

    That is one thing that I like about racing in the US, during the Red Flag, the competitors are NOT allowed to touch the car. I have seen this happen to some pretty famous drivers and in some pretty famous situations. When it has happened, either the driver was sent to back of line or was DQed. Later, Eldon

    So, the Stewards decide to hand Max a 10 second penalty for his actions causing the collision with Lewis. It has no effect on the outcome of the race so what type of message does this send? Later, Eldon

    I agree that this makes sense since even in the past, time penalties have not always given the deserved penalty. I believe the problem is that the teams have to agree to a rule change. Later, Eldon
