Lovely! Pure sex 💋💋

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!

The other product that is pure sex / art is this original oil pan produced by Swindon Engineering for the GT4's, and what every GT430 needs.  Increased capacity, alloy baffled-gated sump (lighter weight, increased cooling, o-ring seal to engine block (no mess), independent oil pick up sump w/ o-ring sealed pickup tube, drain plug-removable screen around pickup.  

If it wasn't so expensive I would hang a 2nd one on my wall.

Who do we connect with @Swindon-Enginesfor one of these?

but bear in mi9nd that they were a supplier to Lotus for these.

I doubt that they will supply anything that was designed for Lotus. I also doubt that they would have anything left in stock that Lotus hadn't already had delivered.

They may be willing to design and make something new for a new customer, at cost.

Limited run for Lotus a number of years ago.  You would have to check with old GT4 racing teams if they have any on the shelf, not probable.

Earlier this year I spoke with a Swindon Eng guy on their stand at a classic car show. They had an Evora engine in a Perspex case on the stand, which is what drew me in to talk. Sadly it was only there as an example of what they do and the guy said they don’t have any performance parts available for the V6 engine. He confirmed they had built the engines for Lotus in a strict limited run and had no plans to do do any more.

Sure... mine is IPS and maybe 50% of the GT430s. And it’s revised, quicker and comes with a cooler. Way better than the Evora S or the 400 I owned before.

Interesting, what’s the extra cooler / cooling that it has?

My own MY12 Evora S IPS has two oil coolers, one for the engine and one for gearbox.

today all 400-410-430's now come with either a oil-water heat exchanger on the manuals or an air-oil cooler on the Auto, all have the same oil-water heat exchanger engine oil cooler.  The IPS has had a cooler since the S1 days, no internal changes to either gearbox has been made

“GA = J hook design.
Latest design gives improved bite and debris clearance and reduces distortion / vibration, outer grooves do not run out to outside diameter.”

From (the horse’s mouth): https://www.apracing.com/Info.aspx?InfoID=39&ProductID=976

 

(Drilled rotors are prone to cracking, especially with track work. Some refer to them as ‘pre-cracked rotors’).

The j-hooks are fantastic, really impressed with them, immense consistent stopping power. Pad wear is higher but well worth it.

I never saw any cracks on any of my cross drilled brakes on the Exige but the design does create a big temp difference near the holes and they fill up with brake dust pretty quickly.  They also used to groan and vibrate after heavy track use. Braking performance wasn’t really impaired, no fade at all but your confidence could be. J hooks just get on with the job. Best stock road car brakes I’ve used to date.

Thanks....so it’s their laters version of a slotted rotor which is what I figured 

many do state drilled crack, I had AP Racing drilled rotors on my last car, never a issue with cracking however being a Saab, also nowhere close to a track car!
