Re: Another S1 on Collecting Cars coming up..

Interesting! Looks pretty original (bar the addition of timing gear), presumably it's just been stored for the last 15+ years looking at the history :o It's metioned on the advert that it makes around 210 bhp with the new engine; wonder what was done to it? Hmm, yeah it says a replacement factory e...

Re: S1 gearbox

It's the PG1 Rover gearbox but with closer ratios than the standard Elise. B4BP is the code to look for.

From the service manual:

Re: S1 Perspex Engine Cover

That would be awesome if you could remanufacture the perspex part, Dom. If it's any help whatsoever, I spoke to a chap at the Lotus factory some years ago who told me the OEM for that part was Peerless Plastics down the road from them in Thetford, I believe they're still around: https://www.peerless...

Re: 2006 Exige S

Chapter #2, alignment. Do I seek perfection and try to adjust again, straightening out the wheel... or leave it? It was probably less than 5 degrees out... Yes, you should seek perfection.

Re: Emira GT4

Love the look, makes the road car look a bargain at £100k less though! I know the GT4 is a racecar but that's a lot of cash for the extra motorsport bits: * sequential box * cage * brake + damper upgrades * fuel tank Not sure that's £100k having stripped out all the roadcar bits as well? Anyway, no ...

Re: 2006 Exige S

Nice. Looks super slippy but good fun :thumbup: I've always found my Exige tricky to catch in oversteer-y situations. Obviously (lack of) driver skill is a big factor :oops: but have you found the LSD helps make things more controllable? Yes great conditions for some slower speed fooling around. I ...
