    We feel the suspension is much better over the crappy roads than our previous Evora S indeed the suspension on the daily (VRS) driver is much firmer than 430 road setting totally agree on 410 comments
  2. Yes...possibly why Americans are only able to purchase Evora 400,/410, no Elise, Exige or (as yet) Evora GT430. not sure how, if you die in a road crash fire you know what the insurance company pays out for?
  3. How many are going down to Goodwood this year, we are looking at being at the Saturday so may change July meeting? or possibly Sunday 14th at Trax show at Donnington circuit?
  4. Your obviously a more economical driver than us? With how the new tank is constructed (the ends were recessed on OE) it takes slightly more fuel. It took Central Lotus about an hour and a half/two hours to refit, they were doing some other jobs on ours at same time so unfortunately can’t be more exact. the longest time was spent on refitting the interior, which had been removed for accessing the wiring connections and fuel pipes. Refitting the tank, (reconnecting) and under-trays was relatively easy/quick .
  5. You will need to purchase the next issue as well for the complete interview, but a good read and the picture is pretty cool. You could always borrow your dads copy!
  6. We have today replaced the heavy (17kgs) stainless steel OE fuel tank. the new fuel tank utilises safety foam and is 6kgs lighter for further information please contact Jim @ Alloy Racing Fabrications; 01636 822 708 or [email protected]
  7. Yes also agree; especially with three grandsons, the eldest wont go anywhere with us now we don't have the old Evora S +2

    Yes the carbon bucket seats, haven't done the bracket mod certainly something we will consider in the years to come.

    We have the standard seats and don’t have any issues, each to their own

    Hi Greg, as Trevor has stated the GT430 is an amazing car, hope you can do a deal with Jamie.
  11. Think I'd rather walk!
