  1. If it were the same backbone layout, then it would probably be similar to the Zenos chassis.
  2. Had a Pirelli PZero Rosso front tire start to fail in the middle of a 900 miles trip home from a Lotus Owner's Gathering. It was actually a manufacturing defect, the tire plies hadn't bonded properly. Held till I got home! Now I have my Brembo Race brakes with 328mmx35mm rotors, so the spare won't fit anymore. My friend has blown several tiers on his X180-R Esprit on the street and track. One front tire blew at high speed and also cut his front oil cooler hose. I've had a puncture and a slice (at the same time) on my daily driver with low profile tires. Tire got so hot it was hard to hold.
  3. I live in a dry climate... No rust!😊 I've never had any problem removing manifold or turbo... 👍
  4. The spark plug should be NGK BPR6EKN (copper) I know some people like to use the iridium plugs, but I've heard of problems over the years I've been active with the Esprit Delco injected cars... Besides, it's not the kind of engine that you want to let go 100,000 miles without checking the health of the cylinders by looking at the plugs. Also with increasing boost, you generally need to go to a tighter spark plug gap, so I'd want to stay within the spec, rather than wider.
  5. The earlier Evora seats are Recaro Sportster CS, these are the dimensions... You could measure your car. I have Elise seats in my Esprit, gave me a lot more leg and headroom, but are not as comfortable as Evora Seats!
  6. I had a problem where my interior fan wouldn't spin, and it would blow the fuse. It was the old grease on the motor shaft! It was too old and sticky, the motor would overload trying to spin the fan, and then pop the fuse. It might be loading the system, and it doesn't have enough amps until the ABS pump is done...
  7. rather than a big rectangular screen...
  8. I should add these are only for the GMP4 Delco electronic injected cars.
  9. Yes same for all 89+ 4cyl, SE-S4s and Gt3
  10. Most likely exhaust back pressure valve failed shut.
  11. Hi Craig, There is a Lotus Colorado club that meets in Denver and golden often. The previous club president Peter has an early Evora. You should contact the club, and I can send you a contact email address in a PM.
  12. I finally bought a PS4 (PS4 Pro 1TB bundled with RDRII) I have been waiting 8 years for this game! ANd now I really don't have much time to play it yet... But it's great so far! Starting a new job monday though... I should have taken off a few extra weeks between jobs to play!
  13. Had a similar problem once. My work email slowed to a crawl after 13+ years or so of never deleting anything. It wasn't the pst file, but I had to delate another file in the user or common directory in my profile, then it was fine.
  14. Rear Toe should NOT be negative... That will cause the rear to come around fast.
  15. I remove the boot floor, intake manifold, cams, manifold, and turbo first (no need to raise engine on SE) and then pull head while in the car. No problem.
  16. A friend had a battery cutoff switch in his X180-R (I know not the same as a 3-Eleven), but it was the battery cutoff switch that was cutting out on left hand turns. A wire was tugging on the switch, or the switch was loose.
  17. Those touchpads are really bad! I tried a Lexus NX200t and it had one of those... Seemed totally impossible, but it was a short test drive. Read a review of the Acura RDX, and that was one huge complaint. Though the knob systems are really bad as well. Hate the Audi MMI. I added a touch screen Pioneer Appradio to my old Acura, and am very used to it. I do prefer a glass capacitive touch screen (like a phone) to a knob system for navigating through thousands of songs on my phone/iPod. I just added a iPod adapter to my old 2004 Porsche PCM2 system, and you use the knob and several other buttons to select songs. Talk about a huge distraction! But it's about the only way to add an AUX input or iPod to the old car.
  18. I thought the same... Really sounded lazy up the hill. Watching the Exige lap I was thinking he left ~1s on the table...
  19. And now Ferrari has said the name of their SUV... Purosangue
  20. The Lotus patent images remind me of the new Acura RDX dash
