That gearstick cover! 🤣

Using my phone to view these forums,  when I first saw that interior pic I thought it had an anodised purple shifter... until I zoomed in 😁

Added some carbon bits to the 410......430 cup SSC side pods, komo tec side skirts, carbon rear skirts, carbon mirror overlays and genuine lotus 430 cup rear carbon diffuser(hard to see in pic). Still waiting for my 430 cup carbon wing to arrive.

 

That looks awesome - I wouldn't change a thing :)

It's nothing about the manual gear box, actually the GT4 manual is even faster the PDK by 0.7s

 

So, anyone got any idea why exige 410 which is the lightest and got the best power to wight ratio end up be the slowest on track?

Same car, again underperforming sadly:

I suspect the semi-auto box makes a big difference. That why porsche always fits the PDK to its GT cars for recording lap times. Not sure how much the PDK is worth but I suspect it could be 0.5 of a second per gear change which is reflected in Porsche’s own 0-62 times for its manual and PDK GT cars. 
I didn’t count the number of gear changes in that lap but assuming it is 6 or more then some of the disparity can be reasoned. 
In summary I’d happily have all three of those cars in my collection and I can imagine I’d get good use from them all.

Incidentally I piqued my own interest so counted the great changes at 20 in the Exige lap. I suspect therefore that 0.5 secs per gear change is a bit long else it would have annihilated the other two. Still the manual box will be slower.

The sport 410 is quicker round the same circuit that the 981 GT4 which was only available as a manual. Sure the 718 GT4 has more power so should be quicker but by how much? 
 

interestingly the 997 GT2 RS was slower than the 410 Sport too.  That was also a manual only car but I doubt it was wearing the Cup 2 tyres that make such a difference.

Just noticed your post and looks good with all that Carbon.

How did you find quality wise the Komotec Carbon Fibre Side Barge Boards and fitting also. I think they are Eltech ?

Also I see you have the rear barge boards in Carbon , were they from Komotec too

Thanks

thanks for compliment.

i found the komotec side barge boards to be very good quality,,,,the carbon colour and weave is exactly the same as lotus genuine parts and there werent any defects to them at all. They got fitted up perfectly by my dealer with no issues either........the same goes for the rear barge boards which i bought from eliseshop.com. The rears are labelled as a cup 380 item. These rear barge boards or skirts whatever you like to call them have a different shape slightly compared to the genuine lotus ones. The genuine lotus rear boards i believe dont come in carbon from memory. My side scoops were purchased from SSC in sydney australia who i believe source them from the UK FYI.
