  1. The mounting bracket for the gear change mechanism and the control rod changed, i also presue the software. I know lotus quotes 1.4 and 0.4 seconds but im sure they quoted quicker figures for the s before the 400 was released, then downgraded the s figures. On the s the time varies with your driving, if you are pushing on it definitely changes quicker thn 1.4 sec.
  2. Im going but in my mates 1991 911 cab this time.
  3. There are adjuster bolts on the catch, but i found if you adjust it, even if it works fine, check again after 10 mins as it can settle. It takes time but possible.
  4. As far as i know, no there arent any obvious lamps, the switch packs either side are separate. It may be worth checking the connections or even putting 12v to it to confirm its the control panel and not the supply. Gav
  5. Ive only seen that once and it was due to a wheel impact.

    Youre a never ending source of information! You can definitely see a weave in my front clam so presumabley it is carbon?

    Stratton Evora GTs

    Going off the build details from the guy in canada where he bought the mansory panels, the rear clam wasnt a complete clam. Its was a 'top' panel without the boot structure underneath. They had to separate the old clam and bond the new one on. So the 'outer' panel is carbon with the boot box in fg. The front clam again is carbon with any appendages underneath in fg etc but did come as a complete unit as it would ftom the factory. They are not a layer of carbon skinned over a gf panel.

    Evora GTE Registry

    If you can get a coc i presume youre ok. Now if one is registered as an evora s then surely its value is theortically less. You need to clarify if you can get a coc. Thomas' one was pre registered which helped him registered i. Germany .

    Evora GTE Registry

    As far as i am aware they all say evora s or evora s sport racer on the v5. There are ones that were pre registered, ie 11 and 12 plate like mine. The later ones i belive were sva'd similar to a kit car so i would check to see if you can get a coc for them. I suspect not. Gav
  12. They come out a little easier if pulled straight, which is almost impossible. I found that threading some strong string behind the panel edge helps a lot.

    I belive Gavs red GTE does have a swindon engine but running a lotus ecu and standard pully so 385 bhp from memory. Didnt JayEmm drive the standard Evora that they droped a swindon engine in?
  14. It does smart a bit, but the auto does drop it back down .
  15. My evora ips does it all the time, i dont even notice it now. I remember reading (think it was mercedes) that said it was to ensure good initial oil pressure on start up.
