Re: Best Exige Moment

Too many great times over 15years to isolate a single moment. A few notable ones : - Many visits to the Edward's magic garage; for the original Honda transplant, the SC install and then most recently the refurb. Each time has been excitement greater than picking a new car from a dealer. Massively g...

Re: Car re think

Surely the solution is a vaguely interesting daily - that won't break down - and rent something for the track days you do? Not having a dig, but a £40k 2-11 gets you something interesting to get you to the track and back - have you considered a TTRS? ;) - and lots of Caterham/Clio/Swift rentals on t...

Re: misfire detection kit

Exige/340R MDK was a dealer download into the ECU, rather than an external box of stuff on the S1 VVC cars. Exige/340R ECU was much cleverer than the S1 VVC ECU. Or Lotus had more access to what it could do. Bear in mind it was the same ECU as the Lotus V8 engine, so had lots of inputs to spare. Lot...

Re: Book-a-Track bought out by Ginetta

I'm doing Bathurst on 5th February if anyone wants to join ? - Different circuit, different organisation .. only 650 quid .. A tad long a journey to get there though I guess for most ... Very cool. Remember reading about the V8 Supercar race fans at Bathurst a few years ago. The organisers got a li...

Re: 15years of Exige Ownership

Where's that road sign meme that you and Sean replicated? Weaving through cones? Rolling burnouts? Not that the Exiges Anglesey trip ever got out of hand. Not that a everyone meet at JSR and we'll sweep up the breakdowns, didn't encourage some entertainment!

Ever!! :lol:

Re: 15years of Exige Ownership

Lol!! I think the official colour is Shark Grey, rather than free grey. Have never been great at marketing!! Maybe a little darker than yours. Hmmm, Branded at B&C to fix AC. Branded at Plans to check your brakes. Fixed at JSR - with a little help from Sean. Racing tunnel exit made it all good. Ther...

Re: Motorsport Elise questions

Centre seat cars didn't use floor mounted pedals, just the standard top mounted pedal box, fitted centrally. They never had any type approval numbers, and the VIN was different to the road cars. Not with the right PC at the moment, but one of the chassis numbers related to motorsport build. Be inter...
