Getting ready for the 2019 season!

Unfortunatelythe Lotus Interior Colour Pack isn't available in gold, so I improvised.

Also installed the side skirts from @alias23, but added a rubber lip to reduce the ground gap.

Strange you say gold is not available as a colour pack as I got mine done at the factory... Looks like you've just wrapped it then?

Also, do they not have dustbins where you are? 😂

Finally got courageous and added the rubber lip to the front splitter. Looks great and should enhance downforce.

Now I just have to get out of my driveway without tearing everything off.

How did you attach?

Heavy duty glue and bolts evere 26cm. The bolts are visible from the top, but have golden heads matching the colour accents of the JPS livery.

That’s a rough install. You can see all the glue sandwiched between the splitter and the lip? 

The issue is that the splitter is not new and has seen two years of intense scraping on the road. So, there is still some finishing needed, but I first have to get my hands on black Sikaflex.

You don't actually think that'll increase downforce, do you?

So fully aligned to Colin's original approach. Well done Thomas 😁

So, meanwhile managed to clear up the edges on the splitter and side skirts. Second picture is a bit misleading, I was standing on a slope.

Not that I razz the car from lights but the 0 - 100 @ 3.8s is well slow given that the Cup 430 is quoted at 3.3s

Agree, without being not nice, but ~12s 0-200kmh is not what I'd expect from EX460. Sport 350 should be not far away from that or maybe even right at that level.

An exige S is 14.2 to 200kph according to fastestlaps.com but 120mph is 13.1

@RoflOnMyWaffle that's the change into 5th, although you can also get to 200kmh in 4th at just under 7,000rpm

Without any scientific facts my 460 is miles quicker than a bog standard 380, and that was quicker than my 350S too. Strange all these mixed up numbers, not that it matters...

cheers

I'm totally confused by mixed up numbers. Are we talking facts (known and proven / ratified) or best guess/ bum on seat from someone with lots of experience?

More confused by why 0-60, 0-100, etc times really matters in the real world when everyone shits themselves about clutch wear and replacement costs. I'm probably just a dickhead though.

120mph isn't 200kph, 124mph is, so that might be why also?

That's exactly what I meant - 4mph is not much, but frequently there is a gear change in there as it is getting really close to the redline in 4th

It may just as well mean that the two EX460 are different, also may be perception of the speed and acceleration

Must be a tough life being so confused, my condolences. In general I find it interesting to understand what are the performance parameters of the car, it is a part of the whole package of the performance car. Numbers mentioned above are clearly quoted by source.

Talking of the clutch - killing the clutch by launching lightweight RWD car with limited amount of torque means that either the driver has no idea what (s)he's doing or the clutch is not fit for purpose. The story is very different for much heavier and 4WD cars with much more torque and even there standard clutch can happily live through >100 launches and a lot of daily driving.

As an owner of a EX460 and a GT3 RS I can tell you that the EX460 is pretty fast. Not as fast in a straight line as a GT3 RS but not too far from it, at least up to 200 km/h - after that you are in 5th gear an you are lost, as it is way too long.

If you want to compare it a 350S - it is in a different league - its a different car. Certainly fast enough to easily pass a 350S after bus stop on the short straight...

Which would mean less than 11s 0-200kmh, makes sense. The only thing that does not add up is the video above. I think in large part because of careful launch.

Just had a look at the printout from the dealer and even for my car it shows 4.1s fastest 0-100kmh and it's never been properly launched or fast 0-100kmh purposefully attempted
