  1. @MrD-- Yes Ohlin TTXs were standard on the CupR. Can't give you a firsthand assessment of Ohlin vs Nitron on my car, but IMHO, Ohlins are a far superior alternative, if cost is of no concern. Don't get wrong, I believe Nitron makes a good product. I've been running their 3-way on my 2-Eleven for years.
  2. Afew photos of mine when it was being built at Lotus Motorsports, when that division existed back in 2014.
  3. Got her cleaned up for a New Year's day run. Happy New Year!
  4. Maxi-- brake cage/pedal box gives you much more resolution (some might use the words better modulation) when using the brakes--with the booster, you basically have more of an ON/OFF switch. Yes, you would be faster (lap times) without the booster and better able to use the brakes to improve handling in certain situations, IMHO. It looks like the Komo-tec product is very good and probably more cost effective than going the Bosch motorsport ABS route, especially for the occasional tracker with a street car and manual trans with DPM . Back when I got mine almost 3 years ago, ne
  5. @geartox -- Nicolas, for track use, you are best served with the standard 1340cc engine. You can go much longer before refreshes than with the 1500. In fact, even though the factory may recommend 40 hours if using the 1340 for racing, we've seen them go more than 100 hours with no issues. Some people run them until they self-destruct (200-250 hours and maybe even more, if following good routine maintenance) and then look for a used 1340 engine out of a salvaged (wrecked) motorcycle with low miles. Also, if going used Radicals, post 2010 MY versions are better, as hardware improvements
  6. SR3 running cost much higher than the CupR.....primarily due to the Radical factory's recommended refresh of the SR3 engine every 40 hours.
  7. Definitely the way to go if you are a "track addict" and running very sticky tires. Once I went to slicks on my CupR, Bosch Motorsport ABS was the ticket for me...great improvement over the stock Bosch setup. Of course, once I went down that rabbit hole, I needed to ditch the vacuum booster and go with a brake-cage/pedal-box and brake bias adjuster.
  8. PJ, I like what you have done ..... looks great! Of course, I may be somewhat biased..... Happy Holidays!
  9. 50 RWHP from an intake ..... that's a new world record! LOL. Happy Holidays to all!
  10. @ Eldon @geartox -- Probably the wrong sub-forum to post this but I thought you guys (and maybe others) would find this program of interest. It supposedly makes comparing any 2 videos on the same screen simultaneously a very simple process. Ran accross it on the "Beginner Data" Facebook group.
  11. @EldonZ--Go for it Eldon.....I can wait a bit longer for your visit to Spring Mountain. Of course, we've got a, 14-corner, 2.1 mile track with the same 35 meter elevation change (but w/o armco or grass or trees); and I will only charge you $3500 for the weekend.
  12. @EldonZ--love how low you are able to run with the new uprights.....some day I may be able to get mine installed.
  13. @Kristof Thys--I agree, but as you said....what do I know?
  14. Look forward to showing you around. Photo from last Saturday's race start...had to exercise the 2-Eleven.
  15. @C8RKH--I appreciate your concern, very's a difficult task to be on track every week, but someone has to do it. I'd average more than 3.5K track miles per year on the CupR but for the fact that I also like to drive my 12 year-old 2-Eleven. On a serious note, I'm very thankful and blessed that I can spend my retirement years playing with "Loti" at a private, 6.1 mile facility like Spring Mountain Motorsport Ranch--truly paradise for a track junkie.
