  1. RS29 are a endurance pad. Need some heat in them to get them working properly, can be a little wooden when cold. Work well though but as said dusty.
  2. It was just another option, it also raises the wheel from your legs/knees.
  3. Buy a different steering wheel with a different offset on the centre boss.
  4. I have to dig deep in the memory bank but iirc Swindon did the following - Cams Conrods Full exhaust system. Airbox Ecu tune (on stock ecu). Not all the original GTE's had Swindon engines in the back of them. Some had what was known as the Lotus 400 engine. This was developed in house by Lotus, cams and ecu tune was about it iirc.. The above pictures show a Swindon exhaust system. The bore goes to 3" for the backbox, pretty sure standard Evora pipe is 2.5". If that's the case, a Plack won't marry up. Easy to get something custom made though that does the sam
  5. Ps, forgot to say, you need to unclip the HL rear brake light wiring (if you have one) before lifting the lid away from the car.
  6. Good few hours work. If the fob or emergency cable aren't working there is only one way to gain entry. You have to take both rear wheels off and remove the rear wheel arch liners. This will give you access to the engine cover hinges above. You need a couple of people because when you undo the last bolts in the hinges, the back edge of the boot lid will pop up from the pressure being exerted from the boot lid dampers in their closed position. Once you undone the hinges, you'll need a long pokey stick to reach into the boot to hit the latch on the boot lid to release it. Agai
  7. Tyres can cause bad tramlining. How old are they, what brand? Not Pirelli by any chance?
  8. Gold has already been done on one of the factory GTE's. Looked great and spurned me on to paint a 211 in the same. That colour above maybe military grey.
  9. Have they released details on the FE Evora yet? I've seen the Elise and Exige specs but nothing about the Evora.
  10. No.17 just come up for sale here, no price give though. https://dimeca.be/lotus-evora-gte-n17-20-lhd/
  11. Hoffman's have one of the factory cars up at 89k iirc. Edit, well they did have. Give them a call ask if it sold. Think it was Lhd. A Rhd would be worth more imo.
  12. Horses for courses. Why does one man buy a rolex and another buy a Casio? Ask yourself this. How much do you value the ability to adjust your suspension without leaving the comfort of your seat? Having stored settings that can be called upon at the touch of a button? Or are you quite happy to keep taking wheels off and grovel around on the floor because it needs a few more clicks of rebound.... I'm getting old and like the comfort of my seat. I like the instant nature you can change settings and feel the difference while on the fly, not after you've stopped for 10-20minutes to change all
  13. Nail on the head! A fire suppression system (suppress not extinguish) is exactly that. It will give you extra seconds to get out the car. If by some miracle it puts the fire out great but you should not be looking at it from that angle. They are a mandatory item if you go Racing. This is not implemented to save the car, it is to save or give more time to a driver to escape.
  14. I had a hell of a game with mine. Ended up stripping it down and modifying it. It works now.... I'd like to say 'it works perfectly' but that is unachievable with the components being used (but it will never f++k me over again like it has done in the past). The problem will be the rotary push arm that hits the boot lid latch. It is a very poor design. The arm that hits the cover latch connects directly to the solenoid activated from the key fob. There is secondary arm below it that the emergency cable connects to. The secondary arm works by pulling against the main arm above to open the b
