The never ending project, ambition vs reality

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys!



The below link lists CL pads for the AP caliper.

not cheap but IMO definitely worth it. I’m using the RC5+ but they offer even more aggressive/track compounds.

another option for you to look at is performance friction who also make a pad to fit the AP caliper. I had a set of these on my alfa 159 and they transformed the braking on that. In fact I was originally liking for PF before going for the CL’s.

We await to see hwo it all looks ;)

Meanwhile at the batcave, I have now translated the 1 degree +/- 6 minutes to something usable, so I can easily adjust the upper rear arms to suit the wider rears. Fronts are 0,9 degree (both Sport 300 numbers).

I am particularely interested in the alcantara and how it looks!

Kind regards,


Nobody does it better - than Lotus ;)

@chris what steering center are you using? I've been looking for one, but can't find one that fits the Esprit steering wheel.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

What steering wheel do you want to fit? Mine is a Momo wheel so I fitted a Nardi to Momo adapter boss. Think it was an eBay purchase that came from China or Japan (it was a few years ago). 


Or did you mean the lotus badge?
