‘All fragile Elise S1 parts, have been changed too (List on demand).’
That may be a very long list :D
Agreed! I can see plenty of them in the photos. Side windows,clams, a K-Series... ;)

Nice idea, and looks well executed though

Re: S1 sticky windows. Old car troubles.

Mine still isn't done either. My attempt at re-bonding the plastic to the window failed, and any adjustment I've made on the window runner has also failed. I think I need better glue!

Re: I’m going racing!

I was there. You did well, it was clear to see confidence building through qualifying, and race 1. You seemed a bit keen to jump out of the way for the leaders coming through, but I wasn't exactly focusing on when blue flags were out and understand you wouldn't want to cause issues. It's a nice raci...

Re: NC500 Bad Press

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bw_oe9YFloz/?igshid=12labvdscffv7 :shock: Looks more like Glenshee than NC500. Steve. Yep, I'd say the same. Is the Exige soft, or is it just the splitter that's really low (or indeed, down to the speed...) If that's where I think it is, my little S1 doesn't bottom out t...

Re: NC500 Bad Press

Had that too. Very frustrating but ultimately easier to take the hit and reverse. Still to do NC500! I’m unlikely ever to do it. I’ll continue to enjoy my best bits, generally up the west & north west. [emoji41] You might call it the CF490 [emoji23] Well, yes. In that case I'll probably never do it...

Re: NC500 Bad Press

We live on a single track road and get this all the time, never had someone get out of their car yet. Doubt that would end well TBH Had it not been a family of 4 in a crap box ancient worthless Focus facing just me, alone in the middle of nowhere in a Maserati, perhaps it would have been different,...

Re: NC500 Bad Press

It's always the minority who ruin it for everyone else, whether that is the idiot drivers doing 128mph or the idiot local putting tacks down. Both are just putting people at unnecessary risk. I was thinking of doing the NC500 in the Lotus this year, but may not bother. When I did it last year in the...

Re: Anyone with an S1 111S or Sport 160?

I can't see past this beauty at the moment: https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/elise-s1/lotus-elise-sport-160-2000/9558960 I miss that lumpy idle so much! It pains me to say it, but the 111S is the better car (CR box, VVC torques etc), but for pure character a Scandal S160 is h...

Re: Anyone with an S1 111S or Sport 160?

I have a standard car that has been breathed upon slightly over the years, stage 1 head, valves etc, plus some other bits including a close ratio box and I guess probably making similar power to the 135. K-series tuning isn't horrifically expensive, and plenty will already be modified - perhaps offe...

Nice write up, really enjoyable read. Hopefully the weather improves for next time, though I guess it's just a different experience either way!

Re: How do you consume F1?

I watched the 2nd Indycar race at Circuit of the Americas, first Indycar race I've watched probably since the mid/late 90s, and it was very good, certainly much better than the Aussie GP, though that was probably a given! Things that stood out to me compared to F1: - I guess I have to mention that i...

Re: How do you consume F1?

The only disappointment with the Sky coverage is that they have ditched the "Ted's Notebook". To me that was one of the elements of the coverage that I really enjoyed due to the random nature of it. Seemingly Ted is now stuck to a mid week show which is in the UK. I used to enjoy the notebook too, ...
