  1. Hi, I used to use Hawk Ferro carbon pads in my Eclat2.2 for racing. These proved very effective. I tried ebc pads but melted them in 5 laps of Mallory park. I subsequently fitted a PNM brake upgrade that was vented disks with alloy wilwood calipers, this was supposed to be a direct fit but required a minor modification and 10mm spacer to fit behind the 14" wheels. Eventually I fitted Excel Toyota uprights and the lotusbits 310mm vented discs and Hispec calipers with 15" Excel wheels
  3. Have to agree with C8RKH re fitters, you really need a good fitter, they make all the difference. I've always done my own as it's part of my trade, with regards worktops and appliances, I tend to shop around away from the company's that supply the cabinets. The likes of Magnet Howdens etc sub out the worktops and add their bit, I use a local company Marble and Granite in Luton for quartz etc they were cheaper and I was very impressed with the fitter they use. I've now used them on various occasions
  4. Hi, I've used a few times, and had customers who have purchased them for me to fit. I like the quality of them, I find them better than Magnet, Howdens,Benchmark etc all of whom I have accounts with. They were cheaper than the usual suspects and come with the feet bosses fixed ready to just push the adjustable part on and also come with the doors fitted so you don't end up with holes all over the cupboard that aren't used. The carcasses can be selected in many colours. The website takes a bit of getting used to and you have to design the kitchen layout yourself. On the couple o

    Hi, white Excel at about 3pm today travelling over Ivinghoe Beacon main rd.towards Dunstable
  7. They look like they go around the wheel arches, but I could be very wrong

  10. The race car is an S2 so came with the Getrag from the factory and I assume a Lotus Getrag specific bell housing. I like the Getrag but have to admit to not having driven a car with the Lotus Maxi box. With the right gear oil in it it is slick and nice to use, and well used when being raced.there appears to be similar Getrag boxes in certain Jags of the same era that could potentially be used but you would still need the bell housing or possibly and adapter making. Possibly Lotusbits might have the parts but I doubt it would be cheap and then there would be the shipping. Sorry I can't hel
  11. I would 2nd the Getrag, it's the only thing I haven't broken on the Eclat race car
  12. It's either diff out or engine and gearbox, the prop will come out either way
