    Instrument cluster lights

    First try the dimmer button - possible you've pushed and held it in. Next remove the fuse and replace, as this resets it Had this a couple of time on my old 2008 SC - think its no. 9 IIRC ( but check handbook ) After these - its gets more painful I'm afraid.

    Sorry wheel and tyres again

    Buy 4 cases of copy paper, one under each corner

    Blyton Park

    It will be dependant on which circuit they are using

    Tyre help please

    You'll be fine running the 08R's in 205 width on the front if the wheels will take them. Running them on mine and the handling is great, even at slow speeds.

    AD08R V’s ZZS

    No problem Kevin, I'd probably run them at 24 front, 26 rear then, as the K is a lighter engine, and lighter car overall. All you can do is play around with them really to see what feels right.

    AD08R V’s ZZS

    Which Elise are you running Kevin ? Those pressures are the stated ones for an S3 as per the handbook - I run mine about 25 front and 27 rear, so they aren't far off tbh.

    AD07 or AD07LTS2?

    You're correct, the AD08/08R's aren't LTS - but won't make that much difference tbh, if any. I've run 08's for years and since Lotus now put A052's on I doubt they are LTS, and certainly the Ad08R's they put on the 260 Cup weren't LTS2 compound is very similar to AD08R Currently running AD08R's on the 250 Cup for fast road, and they're fine.

    AD08R V’s ZZS

    Not in my experience, the Cup came with A048's which felt ok, swopped to the AD08's on the 205 and the steering was so much lighter I expected the car to feel really heavy at slow speeds, but not the case.

    AD08R V’s ZZS

    Not used the Avons, but running AD08R's at the moment, no problems, great grip in the dry pretty good in the wet/winter. Fast road use on 250 cup But grab them while you can, as the EU in its wisdom will be banning them. Got a pair of rears on standby for when the current ones need changing.

    Elise roof cable.

    They area ridiculous price for them too - around £110 IIRC. Had 2 go so far on a less than 2 year old car Luckily they've been replaced under warranty. When they go again as they will, I'm going down the VX cable replacement route, as never heard of any of them snapping. One my previous elise I had one go in 6 years of driving - so the standards have dropped yet again. In reply to Macey, try eliseparts or a dealer if you want to keep original.

    Is it still AD07 and AD08 ?

    So what have you decided then ?
  12. Martin 111S

    Is it still AD07 and AD08 ?

    I'd go with this if you can fit the fronts ok - but grab them while you can, as AD08R aren't going to be around for long due to EU regs !!! I'm running AD08R on all corners and handles fine, the fronts remove most of the understeer

    Service help required

    How far do you want to travel, plenty of decent indy folks/specialists but not on your doorstep, apart from Rob Boston, apparently - not used him so no knowledge. Last few years I've travelled 220 mile roundtrip, worth it to me though

    Yokohama AD07

    Tyre Leader have both sizes in stock LTS spec. Usually it has LTS on the sidewall, or used to. AD08R is a very, very similar compound now to the newer AD07 LTS

    off to bed..

    Aerokit on the cups, provide lots of downforce at fast speeds - cant remember what speed- generates 100kg of downforce as opposed to the standard wing on the 220 which generates virtually nothing.
