    @JackandCokeseems crazy doesnt it?!  Here's the thing, the brake sensor cuts throttle signal when it thinks you are trying to slow the car.  It is a very sensitive item that can easily be tuned by those with the skill and tools/tech. 

    So, in simple terms, if your accelerator is erratic or inconsistent, then it is possible that your foot pressure is being ignored and even curtailed when the brake sensor tells the ecu that your plan is to slow not speed.

    It was a very good suggestion and one to check.

    So no standing burnouts allowed then?

    Thank you, and Pete for the suggestion then. I'll have a check now and see if I can come up with anything conclusive with the switch.

    Added some carbon bits to the 410......430 cup SSC side pods, komo tec side skirts, carbon rear skirts, carbon mirror overlays and genuine lotus 430 cup rear carbon diffuser(hard to see in pic). Still waiting for my 430 cup carbon wing to arrive.


    That looks awesome - I wouldn't change a thing :)

  3. Hi all,

    I've searched and seen similar issues come up for the Evora but nothing in here. Over the last week the car has been hesitant under normal acceleration where it has stalled twice on me and low revs, also when cruising at 2,000 rpm the car will sit happily then jerk for a few seconds then sit happily before jerking again. I decided to give it a good boot to see if it needed a clear through and while doing this the TC light came on and stayed on, I pulled over turned the car off and restarted, which cleared the TC light and all was normal again. The next day and the Idle seemed low and rough at around 750 rpm from cold with air temps of 8°c and back to jerky response under acceleration or at constant rpm.

    Just for background, I use my car as a daily pretty much and has a CAI fitted so hasn't been sat around, the air filter is clean and dry.

    I have removed the MAF and cleaned it and the plug with electrical cleaner ,and also the plug on the clutch position sensor.

    Anyone else suffered this with an Exige and what else could be the culprit?

  4. So my car lives outside and I've had no bother, I have a mixture of hidden and semi visible cameras on the front of my house which cover the driveway. I wouldn't worry to much about added security unless you insurance company specify it, at the end of the day you're going to be less likely to drive it if you have to faff around with removing covers, steering wheel locks, and bollards, I'd personally just go with the bollard if you're concerned as that's most likely to cause worrying noises if attacked.

    My insurance wasn't such a hike for parking the car outside at night. The area you live in will probably determine the price difference between garage and driveway parking.

    Welcome to TLF Jack. :welcome:

    Nice car. Great colour choice. Just don't drink your favourite (from your username) and then get behind the wheel of your lovely car.

    Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :) 

    Thank you. I'm told i was named after the stuff!

    Lovely looking S4 you have there! 🤤

  6. I've ridden a Yamaha MT-09 for the last four years, but now i have the Exige i'll probably get my fix from that, so I'll look at getting something for errands like an adventure style bike with panniers for shopping trips into the city, there's nothing worse than having a really good ride out and then carrying your gear around with you and sweating in textile trousers.
