Overdue post!

Craig has now sorted the 211 and managed to coordinate everything to get it MOTd , serviced and charge cooler fitted!

On top of that Robson decided to stroke a deer. Unfortunately he did this with the passenger headlight of my R8. £3.5k later the headlight has just been replaced thanks to the insurance company and Monty dealt with it all!

Epic.
Lotus 211 - Never violated, tracked, raced or thrashed
R8 V10 Spyder - Monaco Spec, but manual
Nissan GTR 600BHP but not very interesting on track and drinks like Oliver Reed

Well. Vicky is back on the road again with a new engine. A little more poke thanks to some "mild" cams provided by Robin.
All excellent service and at a very reasonable price.

500 miles running in... :shock: I assume you need to run them in gently across the full rev range to make sure that the engine is nice and free, after it is fully up to temperature obviously... running in oil is a bit smelly.... will be back in for the oil change soon, 200miles already under the belt in two days.
Well it moves... might as well make the most of it....
