    LitP 2019 help

    Hi folks It's that time of year again when we start planning Lotus in the Peak, and as usual we need volunteers - even more so this year because three key members of our team Phil, Jan and Laura Stone have decided to take a well-earned break. If you think you might like to help can I ask you to stick your name down on here or if you would prefer pm me please. As usual we need run group leaders and there are various other bits and pieces we could use help with but right now we have an urgent need for a social media manager - someone that can regularly add content to the LitP facebook page amongst other things. Could that be you? All volunteers will receive, as ever, much MLOC kudos and maybe even an LitP polo shirt! Thanks Dean, Dunc, Ray and the LitP team

    Honda conversion

    It's probably also worth talking to Dan Webster (he is HPE automotive). He does loads of Honda coversions and is well regarded.

    Excellent and important advice from Martin, as usual 😊 the footwells corrode away if you don't. Can we see a picture of it by the way please?

    Lotus in the Peak - kids?

    Have a look at the LitP short film we made a couple of years ago to get an idea of what's involved - it's on the LitP facebook page and youtube

    Lotus in the Peak - kids?

    Good question Graham and the answer is yes, absolutely, bring him along. We welcome the whole family, and give complimentary kids packs out on the day including a couple of competitions. Dean

    Always always always check coolant level whenever you drive it - a sudden drop usually means head gasket failure. Also - don't let it overheat in traffic. Get used to turning it off before it gets too hot, and remember the water pump doesn't pump very much on tickover so increasing the revs a little will bring the temperature down, at least until it gets really hot. If you cook it your head gasket will fail.

    2019 Exige Purchase

    Dave has just reminded me - have you thought about a roadster? I really like them and i wouldn't be surprised if they didn't hold their money better in future because they are so rare
  17. They do tend to feel a little lively - it's normal to feel like the steering is following camber changes etc. If it was me I would take it to Gav's (Unit 4 Vehicle Services) and have him check it out. He won't charge you a lot. You might as well ask him to have a look round the whole car just to see if anything else is amiss while he has it on the lift for peace of mind. I think he charges £50 + vat for an hour's labour. If nothing obvious is wrong it could be that the geometry is out - they are sensitive to toe and camber changes. Does it have oem springs and dampers? Welcome to mloc by the way. Dean

    There are lots of drives out organised on here by the way - usually Elisemadray sorts them, and he's from Nottingham.

    Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    Just noticed Central Lotus have a really nice early Evora in ardent red for sale. Have you seen it? The wheels aren't very nice imo but with some nice black rims it would look sensational.

    Piper 633

    The MG 135 cams are good - they do what they say on the tin, that is up the power to 135 bhp with no other mods. You can usually find a pair for about £130 - £150. They are better at low revs than the 633s.
