  1. Hey guys I've got an issue with the Charge-cooler on my Exige, decided to dump all the water through the intake resulting in me putting down a couple of smoke screens that James Bond would've been proud of! Few squeaky bum moments when it happened.....made worse by the fact I was in Belgium on my way back from Spa. Anyway, looking for somewhere to take it and I've been recommended Datum Motorsport in Hitchen. www.datummotorsport.com/ Appreciate its a bit further south than some of you northerners would normally travel, but as I reside on the M6 / A14 north/south divide it isn't actually that far for me (within 90mins) Just wondering if anyone has used them or know someone who has and if you have any feedback.
  2. I'm looking for a good body shop to freshen up the front of the Exige, it is plastered with stone chips. Possibly some other bits and bobs too. It has been years since I've had to have anything like this done so a bit out of touch! Bit of Google searching and I've found these guys which aren't a million miles away. Seem to specialise in Lotus and TVR so obviously using to working with Fibreglass. Has anyone used them or know someone who has? https://www.option1sportscars.co.uk/

  4. Most beautiful car I have ever seen, gobsmacked.
  5. Welcome back Chris! And looks nice that 😎
  6. I cannot see how these will work. How will the camera know the noise it is picking up is entirely from one car and not a combination of many cars or other unrelated noises such as planes, screeching tyres, music etc? So I assume the first step if you get caught would be to get an official measurement at an MOT station? At which point you've put your quiet exhaust back on? Hoping this is just scare tactics. Although the Saxo boys with their straight through systems driving like twats through the towns at 11pm waking all the kids up do need a slap. They're better off putting a noise limit on at unsocialable hours and just let the BIB police it with DB meters. Then they can tackle the nuisance areas.
  7. Thanks John. I do have an adjuster already fitted, knob on the dash. I just get so carried away when I'm on track I forget stuff like that It was only after watching the video back I thought about trying to move the bias to the back slightly. It's funny, I don't notice any of the skipping you've mentioned, doesn't feel too light at the front. Although I've got both a splitter and canards at the front so maybe that's adding a little downforce? It has been properly set up, corner weighted with my fat arse sat in it Handling wise it's sublime, so well balanced and controllable when pushed too far. I've done three track days in it and I haven't spun once yet!! I think I need to try harder! I've always been of the mindset that if you don't spin at least once you're not trying hard enough
  8. Yes that seems to be where I catch most cars up by braking so much later. I actually think I can improve that side, I’m pretty sure the front are locking before the rears really bite. Anyway, I wasn’t sure how I’d get on with a seven style car or a car with a bike engine, but I’m sold. It’s taking track days to another level for me
  9. Try Simon at http://www.scottrussellsportscars.co.uk/ He seems to be able to get hold of most stuff
  10. Some enjoyable sessions out on track yesterday with Opentrack. Glorious weather but it was red flag city, people driving beyond their ability and taking shit boxes on track and breaking down. So first 1.5hrs of a 3hr day were pretty much written off. But after a 2nd driver briefing where they threatened to send home the next person causing a red flag, things got better. It was my 3rd track day in my new to me Westy, really loving this car. Brake bias needs moving to the rear a bit, but aside from that it is so well balanced. I do love Donnington, shame the noise limit is so low but short shifting past the meter is no hardship. Took Marcus out for a bit, nearly killed him twice (both "moments" in the video below) but we made it back in one piece.
  11. I take it that's a no you don't want to try my wheels then Alex?
  12. More than welcome to pop down and borrow mine Alex, only thing is, it is a bit of a trek for you. I'm literally just (less than 1/4 mile) off the A14 about 15 miles from the M1 junction. Handy for a quick spin to check them though. Just put brand new R888R on them too
