Federal 595-rsr’s

I have the following sized tyres.... Federal 595-rsr’s 2 x 205,45,16 2 x 235,40,17 In good condition with around 4-5 mm left... I did two track days and 2k in road miles, only selling due to going to more of a track focused tyre. I had planned to use again, but I’m mainly using the elise for track d...

Re: Knockhill - World Of Supercars this Sunday (12th Aug)

Some great pics there despite the weather...

Is it just me but that spoiler on the Evora look a bit wrong.... I do love the Evora, it just looks like a cosmetic after thought.

Re: K series rebuild

Mines just been refreshed and I was £600 in bits alone but I saved money on labour as my mechanic needed help with a house extension and we just did hour for hour. I did replace the clutch with a new ap one, I added a sump baffle , stronger oil rail, competition head gasket and stronger head bolts w...

Re: What's the views - new car, at least it's a Lotus

I quite like the car advertised, but it’s rich money for the age and mileage of the car regardless of how much money has been thrown at it...... my 111s is almost the way I want it but I love the engine but it’s always needing something fixed or addressed, which comes to a point on how much you want...

Re: Best way to carry petrol in an Elise

Last time I took down a jerrycan, I sat it upright in the passenger seat and used the seat belt to anchor it in... bugger if you’ve a passenger though.

Re: Alternative tyre options

I haven’t updated on this for a while but after a fare bit of thought, well maybe a little bit too much I almost reverted my thoughts on AD08’s but with the car being a fare weather car with a few track days planned I though I’d try the new Nankang AR1’s which were fitted to my 1.2 wheels. I’ve been...

Re: Monday Poll: Do you use your car over winter?

Not used it at at all this winter....then again I've hardly used it with the engine problems I've had this year. Engine has now been fully refreshed so roll on the start of the new track day season.

Re: S1 Elise Motorsport replica project

Dear god I do like these kind of build thread....I thought I'd spent a small fortune on my S2 this year but it seems to be dwarfed by this.

How does the VAG lump compare in weigh to the original engine?

Re: 2002 K Series wont start

I had the same problem turned out to be a blown fuse inside the engine bay..... it was the fuse panel which is bolted onto the boot side inside the engine bay. Might not be the same thing but probably worth checking.
