  2. Hi 626 Here is what I think is the science behind CAI. In hot air the molecules have more energy and are more active. They are pinging about and are more sparse. In cold air the molecules have less energy and don't move around so much (by comparison). Because of this the molecules have the ability to be more densely pack together. You can have more molecules of oxygen in the same volume of air. More molecules of oxygen means more bang! means more power. The best way to find out which is best is to experiment. There are many filters and there are many CAI. Try it with your preferred filter then try it with your preferred CAI. Good luck with the Ford F250.

  4. Hi guys new to the forum (forums in general) so if this topic has already been covered I truly apologize. Just bought a 2010 F250 6.4, and I couldnt be happier. I was looking into cold air intakes and began to wonder if it was really worth it, there really arent many bends/curves in the factory box, and it doesnt seem like the cold air intakes out there are really grabbing at any colder air. Find more information I could on this site. Could I just buy an aftermarket filter and get comparable results as if I used a cold air intake?

  6. That's what I thought Dunc, it can wait until I want to respray the clam
  7. I think it's bonded into position from inside Ray I have considered cutting mine out and leaving just a few 'ends' in place so that I can attach a new grill (cut down to the correct shape) in some way. It seems like a lot of effort though when all I really want to do is fit a better horn - I don't like it sounding like a Noddy car - peep peep!
  8. Hi Guy' doe's anyone know if the front grill on an Elise 220S can be replaced without removing the Clam ? Thanks in advance Cheers Ray
  9. Excellent - cheers Phil ...the more the merrier 👍🏻
  10. Great initiative, Dave! Have just fwd to a mate from Hants with a W-reg S160 in Nautilus Blue.
  11. Happy Birthday Dave 🤣🥂

  13. Thought it would be worth mentioning on here that I’ve recently set up a new group on Facebook for owners of factory Sport 160's. I haven’t been a big user of Facebook but have found that the stuff on there can be really helpful. There are some great groups. I’ve noticed there are a good few S160 owners on FB. We have 66 members so far, including Julian Thomson, and we seem to be growing fast! It’s early days but the group has already proved to be a great place for help & advice, and has for example brought together all but one of the 6 remaining original Scandal Green SVA cars, amongst many others, and we have members pulling together S160 registers, and all sorts of stuff planned including an event / meet next year - Lumpy Idle Day 2021 😀 So if you have an S160, join us. If you don't, but you know someone who has, please encourage them to join up 👍🏻 https://www.facebook.com/groups/349706576267904/?ref=share
  14. (Goodwood, West Sussex, UK – 16 October 2020) – The all-electric Lotus Evija hypercar makes its dynamic public debut at Goodwood SpeedWeek this weekend. The Evija will be in action on the historic race track and will be taking part in a variety of high-octane activities, including the Supercar Run. Three pre-production examples of the Evija are supporting SpeedWeek, one complete in a vibrant Lotus ‘Solaris Yellow’ finish and two prototypes wrapped in stunning black and gold, recalling iconic Lotus liveries of the past. The prototypes also feature a stylised image of the famous West Sussex circuit, accompanied by the words ‘Lotus x Goodwood: Creating History since 1948’ – acknowledging the year of the very first Lotus car and the first motorsport event at Goodwood. Among the first outside of the engineering team to experience Evija is Lord March (Charlie, 25, son of the event host, the Duke of Richmond), who commented: “The Evija is unbelievable – the power, the speed, I’ve never experienced anything like it – it was exceptional. This new dawn of electric hypercars brings ultimate motoring to life for a new generation and a younger audience. The advancement in electric cars over the last 10 years is astonishing. There is a huge amount of growth potential for these machines to continue allowing us to keep enjoying and driving high performance cars. Lotus continues to appeal to both the inner driver and the inner child in all of us – so much fun, and ultimately for the driver to control and enjoy.” Gavan Kershaw, Director of Vehicle Attributes, Lotus, added: “We’re having a great time demonstrating the Evija here at Goodwood. Bringing the cars to an event like this is a welcome break from the hundreds of hours spent on proving grounds, where there’s a huge amount of open space and long straights to test the car’s performance limits. Goodwood is a fast and flowing circuit with numerous undulations in the surface, and so is a fantastic test and demonstration for the Evija as it’s the type of environment where many owners will use the car.” He added: “We hope the TV coverage of the event will show people what an amazing vehicle it is, and we can’t wait to be back next year.” Car fans can see the Lotus Evija on the ITV network, with multiple programmes on different channels across the weekend. See local TV listings for full details. Lotus has also published a new US LOT Blog on the Evija, hosted on the Lotus media website here. It details how elements of the Evija have been consciously designed to meet the exacting standards of company founder Colin Chapman, and how that helps make the car a true Lotus. More than 50 historic Lotus cars are scheduled to take part in Goodwood SpeedWeek. They include: Lotus 25 – the car driven by Jim Clark car during the 1963 F1 season when he won the Drivers’ Championship Lotus 18 – the car in which Sir Stirling Moss won the 1961 Monaco Grand Prix Lotus 49 – the car in which Graham Hill won the Monaco Grands Prix in 1968 and 1969 Lotus 72-5 – Emerson Fittipaldi’s car from the 1970 season Lotus 72-7 – Emerson Fittipaldi’s main car from the 1972-73 seasons, and the car in which he won the most F1 races – five in total Lotus 79 – Mario Andretti’s main car from the 1978 season

  16. Lotus Evija at Goodwood Speedweek View the full article
  17. I got mine March 2020. Must have been another one. I’ll keep an eye out.
  18. I'm not a roadster fan usually but that looks great in Red with the hardtop, Nice choice
  19. oooh lovely, it may very well have been you! saw it (or you) three times over the summer in 2019. I was probably in something dull, at the time though. Really wanted a green car, but they're so rare and seemed to carry a bit of a premium. I actually work in Newark (fernwood business park) so if our offices ever open up again perhaps you'll see me around the town on a sunny lunchtime I'm not sure which look i prefer to be honest. I'm a big fan of the spoiler-less look on the V6, but i can never decide between hardtop and softtop. Fortunately, i have both for this car, so i'll swap it over in spring time i think and have the best of both worlds
  20. Absolutely love the sleeker look of the Exige roadster, especially with the hardtop.
  21. I can see it now. Stunning 👍
  22. Ah, I see it too. Roadster with a hardtop. Nice. Which is your preferred look? I wonder whether the green exige on the A1 round Newark is me!
  23. I'll keep an eye out! I so rarely see other Lotuses around this area, very very occasionally saw a green exige on the A1 last year up toward Newark, but i don't think i've seen a single Lotus this year. Lots of caterhams (or similar) though. Maybe caterham drivers are less afraid to brave the plague infected wastelands
  24. Can see it now, might see you about I am just down the road near Bottesford.
