  1. Go for it if you can live with the thought that there might be a CUP 290? or better out before you take delivery.
  2. That might have been me. I cancelled my order when they announced that they cut the power from the announced 460 hp down to 410 hp. I lost trust in the gearbox and engine all of a sudden and believed that Lotus wanted to limit the package because it couldn't handle the load. I had suffered an engine failure with my 2-11 and had become overly cautious. Anyway, hopefully all 3-11 owners are enjoying their cars to the fullest extent. Sorry for my late reply, I don't check Lotus forums as often anymore. I have switched to a different brand and follow those forums, but am still loving Lotus.

    what does the green button on the middle console do ?
  9. Many congratulations !!!
  10. What about the gearbox? Hasn't Lotus reduced the power from 460 bhp to 410 bhp in the 311 road version to avoid risks of gearbox failure ?
  11. While trackdays offer the big advantage of being less crowded (you share the track with far less people), you don't get the same impression you do on public days. On crowded Sundays, during Touristenfahrten, you have lots of spectators along the track and lots of likeminded petrolheads in the car parks to speak to. You dive into the atmosphere more and find it thrilling. If it's your very first visit, I would recommend Touristenfahrten. If you get hooked, and you will, you should try a trackday next and learn to drive the track at higher pace. Maybe if demand is high, we could organize a TLF meeting at the Nürburgring this summer?
  12. Thank you for your technical explanations. Always appreciated.
  13. Take the Evora. If you drive carefully and respect the track, aka don't get carried away by its awesomeness, lol, then you'll be fine. It's really a special place and by the end of the day, you will find tons of photos of you and your Evora on the Internet (or maybe you'd prefer a photo in the Puma? ;)) That will make for a nice souvenir. I wouldn't worry too much about the other drivers. They usually kick themselves out all by themselves. Follow the rules, keep to your right and let the maniacs&regulars pass you by on the straights (btw, should it happen, that they pass you inside a corner, slow down some as to prevent them from cutting in front of you). You will most probably spent most of your track time checking your mirrors and guessing where the next corner is leading to, but it will all be worth it in the end. You'll have magical time. I drive there a lot (benefit of living only 80 miles away) and if I have my 3-11 by then I'd be happy to show you the track and give you a couple of passenger rides. Let me know if you need help with accomodations.
