  1. hey bluethunder

    don't change from a TVR to a lotus

    change from the cerbera to a tuscan or sagaris

    the cornering in a tuscan is much better and the car is more brutal (espescially when you know to use the right foot) and the extra treat is that you can drive open

    have driven esprits before buying my tuscan but wont change back

    the SE turbo was better than the turbo (like your brothers)and the pedalbox on the SE is wider.

    although i'm still in love ith the looks it's still a small car (inside) with a bad working airco and to many electrical (sensors)problems. 190cm lenght is really the max (that's even to big in my opinion)

    i favourize a normally aspirated power car. full power all the way

    my next car will be a sagaris.

    have owned a c6 vette and they drive nice but everytime i passed someone i had to duck (in my country vette owners are linked to trailertrash)

  2. shit

    no global warming ??

    yust was thinking of buying a house in the north of sweden

    the add stated that there was a warning about icebear's

    with the global warming they would be melting bears so who cares

    XXXXXXXXX

    have to look in europe now

    what about buckingham palace

    wont be that expensive i think

    england is going bankrupt

    will get the queen as a bonus for free

    will need her as a gardner

  3. hey guys

    i'm recovering from a knee operation so have a lot of laptop and tv time

    had the luck yesterday to see the holy grail again

    that was super

    like the life of brian those are classics

    the only thing wich is broadcasted in my country at the moment is:

    CSI - Miami, LA,NY,Pitsburg, vancouver, applegate did i miss some ?

    and

    total makeover - gnome, lepricorn, obesitas 1,2 an 3, open back 4 and 5

    models - inc,anc,tink,tank

    what happened with nice series like shaka zulu, etc

  4. american food ehj. gulp !. i'll be eating a lot in little local stalls then with fried chicken or fish.

    a lot of americans means that we won't be able to buy nice clothes. everything will be size xxxl and upwards.

    seen that at st Maartens were on front street every shop was filled with cruiseboat shit. the only piece of the island with normal shops was on the french side in la grande case.

    we will be on nassau near cablebeach

    i want to dive/feed the sharks. is it possible there ?

    rens

  5. Really? I can't believe they would get away with that! Oh, and have you seen The Times are running a campaign dispelling global warming presently. Do you think once it's proved that we're not warming the planet up that we'll get a refund for all of these environmental taxes?

    Can't we sell the Queen, she's got to be worth a few bob on ebay?

    i believe she's practicly new like our queen

    never done hard labour ehj

    i'll give 10 quit

    rens :gathering:

  6. i know that's not the correct answer on this topic but i'm happy as i am

    i don't want to go back for a hump or a good glas of wine

    sure would have liked to know 9/11 was coming up

    would have sold my stock's but the only way to benefit would have been not telling anybody

    i couldn't live with the knowledge saving my stock's but killing a few thousand.

    sorry

    rens

  7. it's all a matter of moment, vieuw and respect

    we don't respect people driving GTI,GSI,SS cars when they want to race us (why don't they understand they are without chance). i'll tell you i had some pretty close races with impresa's, mitsu's, m3's and corvette's

    ferrari, lamborghinin, porsche guys had the same feeling with lotus drivers

    2 month's ago i had a ferrari 430 driver who wanted to race me.

    he was a single driver and i had a passenger aboard (double load)

    after 3 stintht's trying to pull away (and loosing / i even pulled up next to him without full throttle) he stopped and asked what kind of car i had ? he was astonished something was quicker than his italian toy

    couldn't resist to tell him that i had owned an esprit before wich was even quicker (sorry guys that was a lie :0))

    whe like that and disgust gti and so fort drivers

    yust respect them and if you're not in the mood wave them by

    rens

  8. sounds absolutely stupid but had that with my lotus and don't have it with the TVR

    people aren't trying to race me

    never had people sitting backside to the front when passing my esprit

    now they are looking at the car with their mouth's wide open from ?????

    they really look rediculous

    should make pictures

    i think it helps that in my country there are only a few TVR tuscans (i believe only 4)

    never get stupid remarks anymore like: is that a ferrari or a lamborgini

    people just don't know and arent tempted to race me

    btw

    hit a ramp because some F......cker placed the steering wheel on the wrong side ?????

    still not used to that

    rens

  9. i have owned an imported and converted esprit (rhd to lhd)

    to convert the car you'll need a new front end

    this includes having to re-place the vin number on another (original) part of the car

    after talking to the (MOT) they accepted that it as placed in the right rear arche on the chassis were the suspension is held.

    have a talk with those guys in italy and ask them how to solve the problem

    but

    after you have replaced the vin from front to back have this put on a piece of official paper with stamps on them

    my car didn't have this

    so after exporting the car to belgium the new owner had a hard time getting it official

  10. bibs

    i really should keep quit on this part owning a tuscan nowdays but still have the feeling that i'm part of a special group.

    and i have seen yust this evolving on a dutch forum

    i know that not everything will be the same and it's the moderator that has a big say in this but it started with some elise and exige's. now owning an esprit is like coming out of the zoo or museum.

    it's only elise and exige

    trackdays are held on little testing circuit's only suited for "those little mice".

    so

    sure a lotus forum should have all the models (but that includes europa, eclat, etc ) ????????

    it won't be the esprit forum anymore

    so : let's also have a poll for a new name

    rens

  11. hey bibs

    been in Antigua and no pictures of british harbour ?

    you should of told the forum before going

    i might have arranged a tall ship ride for you

    mate of mine has his own boat (lying in jolly harbour/ seeing the pics you were next to that resort)

    he attends the old ships race every year

  12. Hi

    perhaps i can help you out

    have owned an SE turbo and sold it for a tuscan now

    lotus

    the SE turbo was a smooth ride (even with all the upgrades)

    it needs new brakes and another clutch to start with (they are not suited for the performance)

    hopefully the former owner has done a C service and therated the car well

    handling is Ok if you change the bushings

    it can have a lot of small electrical setback's

    the TVR is harsh and brutal

    the looks are better but the handling is difficult

    if you buy a cerbera (younger one) you won't have the engine problems the tuscan has

    more power and less weight than the esprit

    the wow factor is far bigger with a TVR than with an esprit

    with an esprit people think its soemthing else

    with a TVR they don't know what it is

    and

    the noise is far better

    rens

  13. had the same thought before buying my tuscan

    had a go in a VM 77

    it had a hayabusha powerd engine (total weight about 500 kg's)

    thing is that they only have 6 gears forward

    no reverse gear

    you can say : so what

    but i've been driving it for 1 day

    whent like a spoetnic

    but

    needed a helmet

    it rains overhere sometimes (does it rain on your little island ?) and that's a menace without a top

    no reverse

    and your sitting really low

    your allway's on eyesight of the back fender or exhaust of the car in front of you

    put it in a parking and you'll never find it

    to basic for me

    but it was a hell of a ride

    rens

  14. not all the camera's work

    so why step on the brake everytime when you could know that it's not working ?

    even when they state that there's a camera there's not allways a camera inside the housing.

    the housing of the camera is fix but the inside is movable and don't think they have a lot of them lying round

    they cost >

  15. it's not a laserjamm'er

    it's a detecting device with an antenna behind your front skirt and a recieving device in your car

    it warnes you about 400 meters in front if a camera/laser is switched on or pointed in your direction

    it gives you plenty of time to brake to a reasonable speed

    it doesn't do anything if the camera is switched off

    so it's relaxed driving passing a camera with about 150mph knowing it's not working

    they are tested as the best but and allmost everywhere forbidden (i ask myself why :0))

    in my country if you take away the reciever (mounted nar your knees) it's a non working dvice and as such not forbidden)

    the new version of stinger is coming out this month and costs about 1 k

    yust google stinger bell or stinger vector

    there is a laser jamm'er wich you can attach to it but that's highly illegal

    that will cost you jailtime

    in my country there is still a fight going on about detecting beam's wich are freely in the air

    it's like radio frequences. eberybody is free to recieve them

    why not the other frequences (like camera and laser frequences)

    saved me again twice last month

    and

    even in deutschland there are an increasing amount of roadparts where you're only allowed to drive 100 km. even in the night when there's nobody there to endanger

  16. dave

    it looks nice but didn't you ever think of building a ditch

    i've got one and it allows me to do all the work from underneath (standing !)

    if you do the digging yourself it won't cost you more than the ramp

    and

    if you don't need it you can close it.

    you don't have to go up and down the ramp everytime you want to use your car (i recon it's bolted on the floor)

    i do like the ramp though

    rens

  17. locking me in the garage is what my wife does but what the hell there's beer my bike my car and a tv over there

    i live not to far from zolder circuit and not to far from the german border i dont use the car on regular basis. only for fun the only worries are the little piece of tarmac, they call the public dutch road, i have to cross till i can turn up the heat so no need to lock me up

    besides that in the netherlands a stinger is forbidden and if they catch you it will cost you a. the stinger and b. € 250 of fine that's all and if you take out the reciever and hide that somewhere where they can't find it, they're not allowed to touch the stinger and can't give you the fine because it's a non working instrument/gadget there has been a lawsute about this and the fellow won !
