Torque app on Android is free and will clear codes with an adapter ..

Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

Another issue that is also wallet related is that the more power you develop the more noise that is created for the track police and their microphones ...
I got called in at Donington on my 2nd lap when I was on my 2.8 pulley ;-)

Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

Good job you haven't fitted a 2.8 pulley .
Things get even more expensive then... I got through 3 clutches in short succession !
Exedy , helix and standard.
But the SSC gearset and quaife diff were bulletproof :-)

Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

Order the gears..you're gonna need em :-) The oil cooler is a good move if you're gonna track it a lot as,after 5 laps or so the oil temps do climb somewhat with 300 bhp... An oil cooler alone won't stop the standard gears going bang though... Even a cool gearbox will fail with anything over 270 ish...

Re: Winter Car Storage

Probably about to get flamed but , isn't a breatheable outdoor cover the answer ?
Cars and other stuff in enclosed spaces are a recipe for damp.
Outside storage has the advantage of airflow.
