You crazy man Dave! 3-11 430 will be mega.

I’m thinking of going the opposite way eventually.....2-11 to something more useable more of the time, even when it’s lashing down with rain.

Can’t wait to see your new car, exciting stuff! :-)

I have a 111r Elise with full 211 running gear, Inc GT4 brakes with pilbeam peddle box.
Also 270 bhp upgrade. This will be used when it rains so best of both worlds!!

Interesting to see the 3-11 430 has a proper diff. I wonder why they fit it to everything 430 except the Exige?

They probably read Exiges.com and know that Pesky,s driver training far outweighs the benefit of a proper diff :-)

Having seen a couple of 311s in the flesh recently they have really blown me away. Initial reaction from the press photos was that they looked a bit big/heavy when compared to the 211.
Now having seen them up close all I can think is that they are a proper bit of kit. Wow. And that's without even having sat in or driven one. :thumbup:
