  1. Thanks Mark. So how is the cooling achieved on the OEM application then? Just air from the side vents? To the untrained eye (like mine) there are substancial differences when comparing a 410/430 to a 350/380 EX460 kit. The former is a big square box like the Harrop unit (I suppose the cooling bit is incorportated with the SC) and the latter has the supercharger sitting on the cooler. Any benefits/drawbacks of each? I think I read somewhere - don't quote me on this of course - that the stock SC is already on the edge of its performance on our cars - I take it that with the chargecooler the stresses are less as it operates at lower temps? Thanks
  2. Nice project this - by now you must have done every single upgrade to the car! It might have been mentioned but I take it that you have also upgraded the clutch to cater for the extra torque/power? Mainly for educational purposes, what is the difference between the Komotec solution (chargecooling on the base of the existing SC unit) and the 410/430 in regards to the supercharger application? Thanks
  3. Awesome write up, thanks for taking the time to do this👍
  4. Not a 410 but the rear box of my v6 cup (same as 350) is 16 kgs.
  5. Is the issue you described particularly for the Lotus application @Tex? I had Rc6, rc8, pf08, ds1.11 and quite a few more on my clio but never had any noise issues as such, brembo caliper.
  6. Thanks Paul. I've heard nothing but praise through the years for the RS29s on various platforms and forums - the reason I haven't tried them yet is purely the cost and the fact that the PF08 and RC6 are both brilliant. I might have to take the plunge when my DS2500 run out just to satisfy my curiosity, given of course that I can persuade myself that a 30% more expensive pad can be considerably better that the aforementioned solutions.
  7. Has anyone tried the pagid RS29 compound?
  8. Legend @Bibs Would it be possible to make an inquiry and pm me the price if this is not too much to ask? Many thanks:)
  9. Resurrecting an old thread rather than starting a new one, best place to buy a set of OEM forged wheels these days then please? I gave up trying to source a used set.. Thanks.
  10. Might be a silly question but can't seem to be able to find the answer. I know that the dash comes with the clocked mileage preset but given its price I'd be looking to sell separately if/when decide to sell the car. Would the potential buyer be able to change the mileage and most importantly, would I be able to change the mileage on the original dash? Thanks
  11. The state of those springs! Good story, naturally the car would now understeer unless you soften the front out both ways - but you must know that already:)
  12. Best macca of the range, only downside is the soundtrack but the car is truly amazing - very well done!
  13. AIM's data logger seems to be a good feature for the TD enthusiast but it is not great for the committed/racer - this is why it falls into the "nice to have" category. The latter group of people would naturally go to vbox. From what I can judge - and I'll stand corrected if I speak non sense - the vast majority buy this mainly for its interface...going "digital" with a plug and play solution. I certainly belong to this category but problem here is that this part (which is the main reason for purchasing I repeat) carries quite a few bugs yet to be ironed out. It'd be interesting to see how the "approved" version will compare, waiting with anticipation:)
  14. Same here to be honest. The current item has too many bugs for my liking, especially when you pay top dollar for it. If the "Road approved" dash is faultless then it'd be a much more promising solution, albeit without the lap timer - hopefully lotus will be offering this option as an upgrade.
  15. Problem is that the price difference (labour and kit Vs moroso unit) is quite substantial, especially when you consider that you'd also have to pay labour for switching the sumps over. If it doesn't leak then why bother?
