  1. Thanks for your comments. I do love the cup cars, but just gotta get my head around spending that kind of money on a car I will prob only do max 3-4000 miles per year in!
  2. I suffer with lower back pain and until recently I had a 2007 Elise S2 with Probax seats for 7 years. I actually found them pretty comfy and I could go out and do an 'all-dayer' (eg Track day) and do 300-400miles in a day. I would know about it at the end of the day, but very do-able. I'm about 5'11 and an instructor on a track day suggested I shouldn't have the seat too far back with arms/legs at full stretch. I think this may have been from a safety point of view in case of impact with straight arms. I'm certain a new sport 220 has Probax seats. I agree with the comment above ie, try n
  3. Thank you all for taking the time to write about this car. I may contact Jamie on Seloc and maybe Oakmere for a chat. I'm in no rush as the dust is still settling from the sale of my 111r, but I'm feeling a little better about it now! Time to do a bit of tidying and sorting in the garage while I have the space!! Cheers again, Mark
  4. Hi and thanks for the info. I will probably give that one a miss then! No rush especially at the minute! Not sure if you remember but we met on the Peaks run 18th Oct. Cheers again Mark
  5. Well after 7 years of owning my Elise 111r (almost to the day) I have now sold it. It all happened rather quickly and to be honest I'm not sure if I've made a mistake!!! I'd been toying with either continuing upgrading (suspension etc) but I couldn't help thinking I may aswell put those funds towards the next step up for me, which I feel will need to be a £30k+ purchase! Now I'm thinking do I want to be throwing a £30k car round a track!!?? Oh well, it's done now and I'm sure I will find a replacement. Something like this would be my ultimate car, but does this seem a reasonable pri
  6. Thanks for the replies. Yesterday, I ordered the 'Elise-spares' one as I only do max 5 TD's per year, so I'm sure this will be better than the existing standard one. ... and thanks for the fitting tips. I will print them off for my chap who will be fitting it. 👍
  7. Hi all, At my last track day a Lotus educated chap recommended putting on a baffled sump on my 111r for track day use. (Max 5 per year) The 'Seriously Lotus' and Elise-shop versions seem to be £4-500 incl VAT, but I found one (Seloc search) for £199+VAT at Elise Spares http://elise-spares.com/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=sump&product_id=526 Has anyone done this or explain if it's worth splashing the extra cash? Cheers Mark
  8. I will be interested to hear about these Dean as I am still debating what to do with mine! 👍
