I notice in the Owners Car section - TT mentions a future upgrade of “breather kit and catch tank”. What’s all this about then? Benefits? prices anyone?

Hmm, that sounds like stuff you’d need to know…Ooh look, it’s documented in the “Stuff you need to know” section [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image] http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/Forum5/HTML/000008.html Whizz down to the catch-tank part.In summary, I reckon it’s recommended for hard driving.

Well, I may not be getting it now. JCT600 rung me today to say that they had spoken to James (the technical guy from Lotus) and he said that this was a 340R upgrade only. It would cause my car to tick over like a bag of spanners - The explanation for this was that the breather kit allowed the engine to suck in cold air via these pipes… Sounds like complete cr*p to me… When I mentioned that they had fitted the very same kit to Steve Greens car he paused for a second then said he’d get back to me…Still waiting…

I’ve had the kit fitted…but very definitely not by JCT…I don’t think I need to say anymore!!!

Oh right, thought it was JCT… You’ve got me worried now Steve!Was it the Lotus Service Centre then?

TT yes

It’s a real worry when these dealers don’t know their arse from their elbows…

and they have the coveted title of “Motorsport” dealer…

Haydons knew their ares from their elbows - didn’t stop Lotus screwing them though - I hear Lotus are going to be doing it to another dealer as well - oh well I still will be trying to take my car there for servcing and upgrades…[This message has been edited by Guy (edited 24 April 2001).][This message has been edited by Guy (edited 24 April 2001).]
