Looks very interesting, can’t wait to hear the results 😀

To some he can be a cantankerous old Scot but I’ve always had a good chat with him and his knowledge and work is excellent.

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

The bits you can actually see on the car look perfect ;) 

It is the first of its type, I’m sure they’ll be refined for future production versions 👌

Interesting, I guess the rough "look" is due to the prototype aspect of the project ?

Rough look? I'm assuming you are having a laugh!  Have a look at OEM and others.


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

It is worth noting that I have 2bular manifolds, downpipe, and sports cat too, (although Jim kindly modified the sports cat to make it fit as 2bular did some weird stuff when fitting the 460 kit),

George - I'm confused - I thought you has Komotec manifolds and downpipe?

Sorry, it is a komo-tec manifolds, down pipe and cat.  It was komo that did the weird stuff and 2bular have rectified it.

Here you can see the cat now it’s been modified to fit

Thanks to Back on Track for their hard work on the cad. Exhaust is fitted and looks awesome.  I’ll feed back on my thoughts once I’ve run it in a bit as I’m taking it super easy.6FDD6AA1-E795-4249-8A1F-4793AAD53F1F.thumb.jpeg.c7324de5be03fabe591eee2f50d5ee13.jpeg

New front discs and pads fitted

Also big service done, air filter clean, new plugs, new oil in both engine and gearbox (gearbox feels better) and probably more I’ve forgotten about.

New side skirts were also fitted today, but I’ll follow up with that when I’ve taken some better photos!

Perhaps not a question that should be asked at the moment.  

But if you reach the end of your quest for perfection, a total costing of expense would be interesting to know to compare against Lotus’s latest performance incarnation the Exige 430.

Assuming you have  kept a costing  !!!!

A friend sorted them out for me :)

I got the bodyshop I use to fit them as they also painted them.

@GFWilliams is the first to test a design i've been working on which blends a bit of the Lotus OEM and Eltech design side skirts.

Sounds very interesting - are you also planning on doing the small rear diffusers ala 380 ?

That was actually the original plan... however when investigating moulds which turned out too cost prohibitive, then potentially 3D Printing which I fear could be too fragile in practise... I put that idea on the back burner, especially as I found the WinAce rear spats actually quite reasonable value (albeit a more aggressive design to OEM).

Dont think there is any ... not sure how much we get in ground effect with our cars anyway ... think we are still too high, to make it significant ... at least mine is ...
