So the lotus have developed a character trait or fault as they are known in Renault parlance.

When I turn off the car sometimes it stays ignition live, sometime not.

Its a good game.

However, I have left the negative terminal on the battery finger tight and take off the wire if it wont go off.

Job , er jobbed?

Booked in for a nitron rebuild in a couple of weeks and some general housekeeping. Ill ask them to look at it then.

I have the car away now to have a few things attended to ;

Slight oil weep. Not a clue where it’s coming from but I know where it’s not coming from.

Nitrons are being removed and rebuilt

Dipstick is being relocated as it’s a bastard to get out.

Earths are being checked.

I’ll get the geo done as well..

I think I might fit a oil breather system from pro alloy and then it shall be complete.

It will never be complete, you need an Aim race dash and more carbon, then another 50hp, did I say bigger brakes? Have you rose jointed the suspension? It Never stops! :crazy:

The suspension did interest me. Please stop!

The power I can live with for now. I was thinking K20a+supercharger but not sure I can justify the expense for another 120bhp, or can I? :)

Oh you monster! Its starting again ...

Andy, to be honest, if you are around 300hp leave well alone, add lightness ;) I found the changes become more dramatic, instead of the car being faster in a straight line, the car is faster everywhere :)

That is my thought process at the minute.
Straights are ok , bends are what I need to focus on. I guess having the nitrons rebuilt will help, then we can look at rosejoints and all the other good stuff including driver training.

Weight is a massive enemy of the S2 Exige, low torque and a high centre of gravity doesn't help. Hence my path to carbon fibre everything, and yes lots of driver training, my end realisation, was the car was way better and faster than I would ever be
