    Lotus 340r Register

    Hi I updated the register a while back as I have :- no 1 no 144 but it does not seem to have updated ? Just checking the one I wrote of Number to check as well
  2. couple of points. 1) My gearbox 1900 miles is shredded ! yes I DO beat the syncro I am told, but my little 340r box is hammerd with 240bhp as well and has lasted 10 years ? I have had it rebuilt BUT I do not really want to keep doing it , 1900 miles !! Ideas, better box, comments welcomed.Surely the 211 box should not be this weak? I am NOT the only person to have the box rebuilt in very short time, it seems a little unfair that this is NOT a warrany job. a track day works the car FAR harder than any race weekend, you are welcome to come on ANY of the track days and see how the cars are put t
  3. hi Mine is 209 a the hubs ( not rolling road) at TDi power, making about 338 and it weighs 760kgs in race prep with a few ltrs of fuel. Lotus race here say its normal ! The car is still very quick, my 340r is 220 bhp with 630 kgs but the 211 still pulls away out of bends ( not into them under brakihng though :-) ) oops forgot to say, Lotus sport have a 280 upgrade ECU ready that does then give us the real power. Not ready to hand out as yet.
  4. twill be 3 cars I reckon, so we can use the wider bit of the A12 and let everyone wait like very bad children, I have to admit we used to do this on country lanes when much younger, I have grown up now honest.
  5. sounds great.. my mobi is 07850 766786 , sadly I am away for two weeks in the USA on Business then end of the month up to Outlen park for another Lotus on Track race. must go faster on long bends is the thing I need to tell myself.
  6. Fantastic, have to hook up sometime, there seems to be a few around Essex area now. will keep my eyes open, hard to miss though. I use mine on the road as well, often in the Boreham BP filling up
  7. Tyre pressures, I ran 16 front and rear at Spa, long track pretty hot, lots of bends, The rear tryes seem to wear very badly ( AO48 m) not LTS. Generally I am running 18 rear 18 front but not 100% sure about this yet need more time in the car. Track 1mm out front l and r 2.25 mm in rear both sides. as low as it can go which is not that low in fact. Just playing with bump and rebound, but basically i am crap with changes, again its all about track time and playing with the car more. Cheers
  8. Reverie made my wing to exact spec as Lotus one other than Carbon side plates inplace of alloy.
  9. will be there, car is available if you want it. Mark
  10. Cheers, I will get my head around the info, I just heard from FSR ( Full Speed Racing) Mark Speller that they have now done a LOT of work to Martin Donnelly's Silver 211 for Oulten park so this will also be interesting. Lotus basically have the 270bhp upgrade ready and will announce this shortly. For myself I want to leave my car well alone and wait to see what the LOTRDC series deceides in the way of regs so I dont waste money. Lotus Sport were at spa and even tkaing the grill mesh out of the vents for the supercharger intakes makes a differeance but more can be had if you open the slot i
  11. cheers, I am here the rest of the week love to, name a time and I will see if it all works out. Thanks, it was a great weekend.
  12. Spa was fantastic. Lots of 211s racing from all over Europe and Mr Donnelly in the silver one, that had to go up to Group C, so Speller took weight out, got it up to about 265 bhp and Mr Donnelly went for it, coming second overall in the 30 mion race and winning the 40 mion race as Walshy in his monster car had to refuel. We had all thought that the 211s would not acheive 40 mins in a race so all cars ( other than some of the cup ones) short shifted a little and concerved fuel( not easy in a race) even I used 5th and 6th a lot which was damn hard for me. The car was UNREAL, loved it more th
  13. Speller who looks after Donnellys car has to clean the holes out every single race without fail. But I was particularly hard on the brakes and not being used to ABS on a race car I am sure I have been over using them..
  14. I am away for a couple of weeks will let you know as soon as I am back. Quick note ref race at Brands BOTH Gav and I have now put AP 295 discs on, the standard ones had died after an hour or track day use, even with a new set of Pagid 14s they brakes had gone. The standard ones need the holes cleaning every 30 minutes to keep them working. I have put softer RS42 pads on with the 295s for now to see how they go. Other than me getting lazy in race 2 and braking early becuase of laziness and a different feeling to the brakes and concern over the brakes, the car was fantistic. Drove there and
