Sorry for the typo, I meant standard clocks as in original dials, are they still in place behind the MXL?
Also, I'm still puzzeled over the 211 CAN message format, I have so far failed to get my MXL to read the CAN data. Which AIM template are youi using.
I had tried and failed to get the AIM MXL CAN interface working, I was told by Lotus that the 211 ECU did not have a proper CAN message format.
How did you find getting this working??
Very neat installation, have you retained the stand clocks behind the MXL?
Thanks for the heads up on the timetable Scotty, it doesnt give us much time to change gearboxes between races!
Simon fitted the Pirhana front clam quick release for me, it was a top quality job, I would highly recomend for any race car
I still have the standard oil coolers fitted but plan fitting a Laminova kit, it would then be seconds to remove or re-fit
Scotty, are you planning on trying the new ratios?
I think this could be a really good upgrade particulary with stronger sycros.
What diff did you run this year?
When do you think these will be available, do you think in time for Brands?
That bike seat look painful Scotty !
See you at Dijon
Most of the road 2-11 seem to be a similar spec, and need only minor work to make for basic race ready.
This seems typical of whats available http://www.pistonheads.co.uk/sales/988129.htm
On top of that you will need basic safty stuff, extigusher etc., a motorsport wing and front splitter, and the 260 ECU upgrade, also I have also gone for the bigger front discs and mine had a LSD option fitted. (which mean +10kg on min weight)
But the car should remain quite usable for the road/track days
Gald to see your interested in going for a 2-11 james.
BTW are you at Oulton on the 8th?
Can anyone confirm what the standard spring rates are?
Also for running at lower ride height, say the championship minimum of 85mm what spring rate would be optimal?
Is anyone able to confirm if the Reverie rear wing is legal for raing or do you need to use the Lotus part.
Also for the front splitter, can you make your own (assuming its the right dimensions)?
Thanks Scotty, I'm looking forward to meeting everyone, hope to make the test day on the Monday also.
Any one interested in a Xbow should take a look at mine, its the now in the spec that the car deserves.
Ran at Brands test last weekend, and without too much setup time was running low 52s on Toyo R888s
However now decided to sell it and bought a 211.
Reason being the limited opportunities to race it here in UK, I had originally hoped they would sell enough cars to get a one make championship going eventually, but its classed as an open wheel car like a Caterham, so very limited .
Anyway hope to have the new 211 out at Brands for the A1GP weekend.
The KTM has just gone onto pistonheads: http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/949021.htm
Komo-Tec Exige S EX460
in V6 Exige Projects & Upgrades
The transmission looks very interesting, any known installations?
Any idea on price?
