  1. Your probally right I must be confusing the 8 wide with the komotec wheels. Why would I? Because the rest of the car is modified with the KT475 kit and more.
  2. Yup you are right dealer said they all came with same size forged wheels. So lotus never made a 17x8 forged wheel for the exige not even the 430 cup?
  3. Anyone know what they are on a v6 390 front and rear?
  4. Has anyone tried simply bolting up 430 wheels and tires which are wider and was any body work needed or was it straightforward? 350 is 205/45/17 front 17x7.5 with Rear being 265/35/18 18x9.5 430cup is 215/45/17 front 17x8 and rear 285/30/18 18x10
  5. My dealer told me all the FE's used the same wheels so thats why i was hoping for 8.0 Please do keep us posted if u ever wind up measuring it.
  6. Any chance you can check if your front wheels are 7.5 or 8?
  7. Can anyone confirm if their 390 came with 205/265 or 215/285 tires?
  8. Car has all the response it needs with a supercharger no need to go such high comp would rather more boost.
  9. Why are all the aftermarket pistons for this v6 engine high 10:1 why not 9:1 or 8.5:1 with more boost?
  10. Anyone know what the rotor size is on the 390FE? Looking at a 343 alcon upgrade.
  11. Metalic Grey Getting some BC rt51's in amber/gold ohlins ttx. Carbon sills both hard and soft top. Once I figure out which parts fit on v6 exige vs FE390 which i'm guessing is everything... I'll be paying that garage shimaya a big order. Had they allowed me to get something other than nitrons i may have got a 430 instead.
  12. Shocked that they just dont transition to tubular piping for that
  13. Going 225/45/17 and 285/30/18 would allow me to run the good year supercar tire..... What does it take to go 225 in the front?
  14. Has anyone verified if this actually allows wider tire with a coilover say ohlins ttx?
  15. I know it comes with the same blower as the 430, but i couldn't get the fire extinguisher option those are only 420/430.
  16. Dealer now tells me factory is running behind on orders and may shut down taking new orders.
  17. My dealer told me that the hardtop and soft top mounting points are different so whichever u spec the car with is what u can use. Can't have both i tried.
  18. I've got a 390 FE on order as well no shortage here, must have been that specific dealers allotment limit.
  19. I'd buy your car in a heartbeat if it was LHD but i emailed to replicate the ttx with mechatronics setup and it's actually 4000 for the ohlins and 4060 for the mechantronics incase you were wondering where all your mod money went
  20. Thanks i think i'll get that instead altho i'm not sure what the diff is between a final edition 430 cup vs a normal 430 cup? Was kinda fearing all the 420 jokes.
  21. So aside from CF and 10 hp light weight wheels, ti exhaust, cf roof ,AP brakes whats the difference between the 430 and 420. The 430cup seems to be street friendly and compliant...
