Re: Exiges.com Trackday 2020

Ben,

Good plan, I’ll book. I’ll try to do more laps than this year (which was zero).

Thank you.

Re: North Weald Activity Day

Ben,

Is there a 2020 Exiges day being planned? I know you are mega busy so it may not be your priority.

Re: S1 Exige looking for new home

My s2 went off to a new home in Southampton today, a bit sad but you can have too many cars. Space in the garage may be for a home build Caterham academy for my son in 2021. Van tyres are going back on my academy so he can get the feel in 2020. The s1 is now officially safe! Big thanks to Jon Seal w...

Re: Battery telltale light at high RPM

I’d go for a bad connection as well. When the engine is not running the battery should be 12.6 volts or there abouts. Drawing current with no alternator charging will drop the voltage. Alternating charging will lift the voltage to 14volts. Looks like it’s the connection from the alternator to the ba...

Insurance

This may be old news to the wise. My Exige no longer goes near a track so I tried moneysupermarket for insurance, 40k value, £168!

I knowing passing my test when dinosaurs roamed helps but that’s a bargain.

Locked garage, safe area etc

Re: Are these coils done?

That’s very interesting. Google was my friend and I found this: http://www.ngk-sparkplugs.jp/english/techinfo/qa/q17/index.html Brown deposits are not combustion gases, they are Corona stain, oil droplets attracted from the air by the potential difference. See what you think. Keith NGk say it’s perf...

Re: Are these coils done?

Confused, I thought they are made of plastic or rubber, in which case they cannot arc or trace. Looks much more like corrosion from elsewhere running down the outer case. Have you looked “down the hole” to see if you can see where it’s coming from. The other option is the brown is coming up from the...
