Re: Hello! 135R owner

:welcome Alex. Great to hear from the new owner. It's a much-loved car up here in SE, and it's great that we'll continue to know where it is and what it's up to. Treat it well, but not too well! :D

Re: HT Ignition Leads

I always fitted Magnocor HT leads on my S1s, because, through my own extensive testing in both laboratory and real-world conditions, I found the Magnecor leads to be red, while the OEM ones were black.

Re: Are track days all you do in your Lotus then?

That looks great! I won't steal your idea though. How about somewhere out west. We haven't been to Echt Tandoori for a while?

You're an arse! :D

Still feel the SE spirit alive and kicking, and totally agree Steve can be thanked largely for that. As Campbell says, life is very different these days, but would hate to lose touch completely. Which reminds me, it's my turn to organise Abz curry...

Re: Anyone out there?

Interesting. It's not at all how I see things going. Battery tech has all the investment, so even ignoring the merits of any other solution, BEV could well be the VHS while other solutions are doomed to be the Betamax. The tax incentives to own a hybrid are decreasing in favour of pure battery EV. S...

You know hydrogen cell vehicles are just Li-Ion EVs with a needlessly complicated charging system on board?

Re: Winter tyres. Discuss.

I love CCs. They're made for Scotland, where snow isn't that common, but temps are low and roads are damp for 8 months of the year!

They're fine in full snow too.

Re: Invergarry to Kinloch Hourn

Have you looked on Streetview? I wouldn't make it in the 2-11 with <70mm clearance, but an Elise/Exige should be ok. It's a bit rough up past the dam, but looks like the fantastic scenery would be well worth a few scrapes on the undertray! :)

Re: New(ish) car .. not really Lotus Content and a long wait..

Encoded on the front face you can't see. Oversized encoders like that are for cylinder identification. Each cylinder has a different encoded pattern, hence the need for a bit more space on the face, hence the oversize encoder wheel. With cylinder ID, the ECU knows sooner where where the cam is in it...
