Re: Replacement Schroth Harness

Best upgrade on the S1, fit belts as well, if you can find a set. Much better on the road, you can see at junctions and use the radio.

Re: Replacement Schroth Harness

Thommo,

I only use stainless where there is no real load on the parts. Undertrays, splitter fixings and trim are fine. Seats, drivetrain and suspension always get the correct grade of steel.

Re: Replacement Schroth Harness

Agree, I would not use stainless on seat or belt fixings, use the correct grade of steel.

Re: Engine (VHPD) leak question

Well spotted Klaus. Those seals go all of the time, they are cheap to buy but can be a pain to replace. They need to be pulled out with a spiked hooky thing and the new one pushes in using a socket. Definitely fix that first. When you have the old seal out you should be able to see a small hole at t...

Re: Engine (VHPD) leak question

I can’t really tell. You need to clean it up and then see if you can see where the fresh oil appears. Talc is really good for drying areas and shows up new wet areas, apple blossom smells good as well. I’d leave the trays off until you find the source as a build up if oil on the trays can catch fire...

Re: Part 3 of 3. Exige S2. One year in.

A mate of mine who used to be an instructor and a racer (Lola historic) left the TC on his 911 4s at Doningtion always on. He claimed it could catch stuff he could not and he did not fancy putting his car into the gravel. He managed quite a pace with it on, had to stop at lunch time as his brake pad...

Re: S1 Exige TMR wheels wanted

....also Braid make some very good looking forged circuit wheels and claim they can do any offset and pcd. I’m sure that would be at a price.

Re: S1 Exige TMR wheels wanted

Scott Russell Lotus list them on their web site saying enquire. If you do, I’d be interested in the price. There was a group buy on Selec a few years ago which soaked up most of the remaining S1 Exige demand. Shipping, customs and exchange rates make it all a bit complex.

Re: The truth about upgrades...

The narrow slot may be a problem but it’s not obviously the case. As the air goes through the slot into the larger nozzle to the heat exchanger it will slow down. The slow flow of air MAY be just right to flow through the heat exchanger matrix without being turbulent which will improve the thermal e...
