  6. Help me deciding pls!!

    Welcome to TLF Lorenzo. We can't help you decide mate, because if we do and you don't like how it turns out, it would be too easy to blame us. I would do as Bibs said. Go and try an Evora and a Porsche (if you really have to) and make your mind up from there. You should duck over to the Introductions area and say hi in there as well.
  7. Another Cornish Elise

    Sure it wasn't a Cornish pastie? Get it? Get it? I crack myself up sometimes.
  8. Lotus Elite S2 Handling 1962

    Welcome to TLF Dougal. You have posted in a fairly old thread, so it might be possible that not many of those people are still around. You should head over to the Introductions area and say hi in there as well. With some photos of your car of course.

    Welcome to TLF Alex. Looking forward to seeing what you end up with. Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help.
  10. You are correct Derek. I forgot that. I was just wondering why, while eating breakfast, why Lotus didn't keep using the same 2 points and just change the measurements?
  11. At the back, you measure under the gearbox hoop. At the front, under the front chassis crossmember.
  12. Andy, The plan is to loosen everything and set the correct height with the correct ballast. Measure to the arches, remove wheels, reset hub height based on measurement and tighten with the wheel off in each corner so I can get to the bolts. No intent to set the car at a lower height than that suggested in the manual.
  13. Yeehah. I'll be on my back in the garage on the concrete floor. Sigh. If I write pit on the floor, is that the same? If I loosen everything and get the correct height, then measure the wheel centre to the arch height, could I then jack everything up and using another jack or rope, lift the hub to the right measurement and tighten everything up when I can see it? Theory sounds ok?
  14. No suspension work done on the car that I know of or have a record of. I am thinking I am going to have to loosen everything to get the car 'down' then torque everything back up again. If the 2 x70kg ballasting does not bring the car down to the manual spec, then I am out of solutions. Other than possibly adding more weight?
  15. Do your fans keep running after the engine is switched off?
