Hello from Staffordshire ??


Recommended Posts

Cracking choice of car and well done choosing a Lotus.

Really am warming to the Evora and with the black detailing your having done, it will transform the car for the better.

Friendly bunch here and throughout the Lotus community.

As for meetings, I know MLOC meet occasionally in the Birmingham area, as well as Shardlow south of Derby every month and I organise a meeting just off the M1 junction 27/28 every month called FLEM (Fish's Lotus Enthusiasts Meeting).

Lots of track days, Lotus Festival and of course Lotus in the Peak at Chatsworth House, which is an essential event.

Torn about selling but decided to swap to this    

Hello from me in Cannock, Staffs ? First time Lotus owner as I've recently purchased an MY10 Evora as pictured below! The forums been incredibly useful and have found out so much about the c

Fixed that for you John

Thats really good to know. Are those meets updated in this forum?

To be honest I am very much up for track days. Happy to do them in my Evora.

I'd like to do Brands Hatch or Silverstone because I'm very familar of the track layouts. Big F1 fan ?

I'll search for that forum. Yes I'd suggest to put your meets on here because to be honest some people like me may only spend most of their time on one forum which for me in this case is this forum.

??? from what I've seen so far its great. I just checked MLOC though. Didn't realise the Midlands had its own club. Perhaps thats what the Midlands events section of this forum is quiet. They're all posting over there.

I like this forum as it has a dedicated section to different Lotus Models. Great for me as an Evora owner as I can navigate and see stuff about my model specifically.

Yes its an S. I previously had a 211 and then an S2 Exige which were both Supercharged

That said I don't think there is much difference in performance between the Evora NA and S

Really enjoying the Evora the handling and ride is amazing - definitely the best Lotus I have ever owned

The car was already fitted with the black pack. I'm 99% sure its a wrap with the exception of the barge boards. The previous owner also upgraded the seats to Sports Racer spec and fitted a better touch screen unit

Nice. I'm having Lotus Silverstone do the black wrap for me. Other than upgraded head unit and stage 1 lotus sports exhaust (with blue tips) its completely standard. 19k miles on it now.

I was tempted by the barge boards and the bigger rear diffuser by SA motorsports. Do you find the barge boards a paint to get in and out or not?

Thats awesome. I thought there was much better performance in the 'S'. I think your just trying to make me feel better ?.

Your black pack on the car, is that painted or wrap?

On the road, if the NA has the CR gearbox there's not much in it at all. On the track at 3 figure speeds the S is more urgent but then the heat builds up faster too.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

If you ever fancy a coffee sometime give me a shout being as your local. I'd like to have a look at the barge boards on yours. Was very close to buying a set!

Oh really. Didn't realise that. I thought the S was like 70bhp more.

Mine has close ratio gearbox.

Yes. Approx 70bhp by the specs but a lot of the S cars are not pumping that out and a fair bit of extra weight too. 30bhp more in the NA gives a similar power to weight than the S.

According to specs S is 0.4 faster max than NA to 60. As I said, the track is where you would really notice it.

Having said that I've heard of a pro race driver who has the NA rather than the S as he says it is better balanced on track.

Either way, regardless which one you go for, they are superb cars and a performance bargain.

 Great response I understand. I love mine so far, power is enough for roads. I love the sound too. Balance is awesome. All round fab car. Makes it even more enjoyable as its not my daily drive so it feels like an occasion to drive.
