    LOT
  1. So, I wondered why my batt went flat in a matter of weeks, even though the kill switch was out. Damn Tracker. Can't believe I didn't think of that. g
  2. Thanks Adam, lots to try there. I had the 260 upgrade - hopefully that didn't muck it up. I'll report back. g
  3. When you keep the button pressed down the light (on the button) comes on, but not on the dash. Tried at different settings. No difference. Tricky one to deal with at the garage, unless they can diagnostic check it? g
  4. I think that's what I was wondering, but, as you say, that wouldn't explain the lack of TC out of the corners. g
  5. I've always wondered whether my TC ever worked! Since a month or so into ownership the orange instrument light never came on, either when you would epect TC to be interevening or when the TC is set to off. Yesterday at a torrential Silverstone, the fact that I could get the car sideways under power without any hint of intervention had me wondering. I further tested by wheelspinning the car on the wet painted floor in the pit garage. Wheels just span away with no intervention. So, tested from a standstill, and moving on wet bends with no engine retardation at all. I'm not mad am I, my TC is broken? g
  6. The good news is that I suspect a large chunk of the population rate his opinion very highly, and so any review that helps fill the Lotus bank account with cash is a good thing, because it means they can continue to fool around with wonderful projects like the 2-eleven and keep us guys and girls happy. My name's not down yet but I'm tempted. I have sat in one and it was just superb. Still want max power though having got very used to the SC delivery of the 2-eleven. g
  7. I did see the race car, but it was on a jack in bits! Enough drooling over the burnt orange factory 2-11 (GT3 or 4 can't remember) to last a few weeks. Great colour. If I ever need a respray it's going to be that. g
  8. Logging tyre pressures. I knew there was something I had forgotten! Video 4 is next bit of RaceTechnolgy kit for me. G
  9. So has anyone actually extended, or covered it some other way, or just taking a chance? g
  10. I promise I did a search but didn't find much, so apologies if this has been covered. Warranty runs out after 1 year, so what's the consensus view on what to do about warranty cover? g
  11. I think you are right. There are 2 ways of laying down the markers. Either when you get to the track, using the dash 3 and memory card without the .lap file, or before you go, manually placing the marker in the software (assuming you already have that track map) and then saving the .lap file to the memory card for when you get to the track. With the latter I had heard you can stretch the marker right across the track. I'll try that. Thanks Dell BTW - got the factory to install my Tyresure sensors. Just brilliant. g
  12. That's why I love Lotus. The guys at the factory said during my service Wednesday, yep we have a fix for that, and just squashed the pipe in front of me! g
  13. Del On your Dash 3, have you managed to get current live lap time, ie so you can see the seconds counting away, or do you just get a time once the lap is complete? Also, do you find the Dash 3 does not sometimes pick up the start or a new lap. I think the lap marker you set from the Dash 3 is very precise, so if say you set it whilst on the right of a track, it won't get picked up if you subsequently drive down the left.
  14. Had a really nice day at the factory on Wednesday. There was no secret squirrel testing going on so we were allowed to sit on the balcony all day, in the sun, overlooking the track. Steady stream of Evora's with some spirited driving from Matt (?) one of the Lotus drivers, looking after some journos who were in a chase car. Got a few passenger laps in a non-SC 2-11 driven by not sure, but he was pretty good! Lovely to see the car well sideways. Had a factory tour. Had my (Tyresure) tyre pressure / temp system fitted. Had a first service. Drooled over the new FIA seats and the carbon wing. And the engine upgrade - well worth it. Subtle but very nice difference. Pulls well - just feels more eager. On my 3rd Lotus and never been to the factory so felt it was well overdue. G
