Bugger!

That's a shame as we were in the process of gift wrapping it for you!

There's always the midweek draw?

I won!

£3.10

Bugger.

Friday is mega Friday - 10 prizes of £1M and 150K to spend on a car! Can't choose a GTE but the 1M would probably cover that :)

How much for a GTE with a Carbon Fibre engine block? ;)

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

I know technically they're all new but if CN can charge extra for theirs then sense would say the newastle one should be cheaper considering the mileage and 61 plate.

Which of the GTE parts can you retrofit on a standard Evora. I seem to remember a Lotus motorsport pdf brochure at some point in the past! Saw the blue one at B&C today which looked lovely.

 

They are also developing a power upgrade. Jamie said the Komotec one would munch the gearbox!

Not much chance of retrofitting, at minimum the price would exceed even the GTE price. Only the wing will be a direct replacement. 

 

Amazing how some dealers downtalk competitors products, there is no way the Komotec kit would have any significant impact on the gearbox. The gearbox was designed for a diesel, where you have significantly higher torque.

I think what Jamie might have said was not how it has come across in Robcarters post. The fact is that Lotus need to upgrade the gearbox for the 400 to cope with the extra HP and torque in order to provide a substantial warranty on its product and Lotus with a huge amount of testing know what the limits are for the standard item.

I'll get around to it at some point.

I thought the only difference in the 400 was a new clutch plate and lighter flywheel?

 

To be fair, we've a few people on here running the Komo-tec kits and I'm sure none of them have had gearbox issues that I've heard of or seen on here...

It gets an LSD too but I thought there was a little more to it than just a clutch.

The 400retains the current gearbox except the clutch/flywheel and LSD. Any more would have had to be done or approved by Toyota first. Like I said, the box is from a diesel so more torque is not an issue.

Well I have to say a big thanks to Jamie, but the GTE....wow. I know they are mechanically standard and the b&c car is a subtle colour but what presence it has. Another Evora that pictures cant do justice to. I must admit to not being an automatic fan but was pleasently surprised with the ips.

Anyway, everything I own bar my child and kidneys will be in the classifieds shortly!

Gav,

I was hoping to bump into you yesterday but we had to leave B&C at 4:30, as you know the traffic was pretty bad.

Fingers crossed: today should be a Good Day.

 

I'm collecting #4 from the factory and driving her home.

 

Beautiful weather too. :thumbsup:

You lucky bastard! I still have to wait ... and wait ... and wait.

 

Until June. :tumbleweed:

Michael, I know you need to put on as many miles before the warranty runs out tomorrow but you could at least post up some pictures  :harhar:
