  1. I was out 4 days last week delivering food to the less fortunate in society. Loads of local groups being set up. It beats staring at the telly 😃 You also meet a few interesting characters from at least 2m away obviously. Jon E good chance i would be breaking into Lotus to get that car. What colour did you go for?
  2. No need to Tut was an ex Royal Marine IIRC he would probably laugh. Always drove in bare feet and virtually never wore shoes. Im putting 2 and 2 together but i would be surprised if its not a tribute to Tut. https://forums.seloc.org/viewthread.php?tid=455479&page=1#pid7923534 For anyone interested.
  3. No oil temp or oil pressure guages on an S2 Sport 190 AFAIK. However they were all different. So if you paid im sure Lotus Motorsport would fit them? That looks like an Elise shop or Eliseparts addition to me. I have fitted mine on an ally plate with carbon viynl on top and put it in the radio hole. I did drill some holes for some fixings though.
  4. Nice car. Im guessing that would be Tut with the stripe.
  5. Very little difference in grip levels between ZZR and R888R. However the ZZR last a fair bit longer.
  6. This should tell you what you need to know? https://www.hangar111.com/rover-k-series-supercharger-faq.pdf HTH
  7. Con was a proper gentleman. I think we are the 5th car up on the first leg of the M in the light Blue M100.
  8. Bis, good to hear from you. I think we were in Lizs Blue M100? I cant see from that pic but im pretty sure we were.
  9. Stick with OE bushes IMO. Re the plating it depends what you want to spend. Shot blast and a few coats of POR ( cheap option ) Shot balst, Re- passivate and clear POR so you can see whats going on in future ( dearer but what i would do when doing it again ). It soon adds up with new bushes, ball joints etc etc. If only doing the odd trackday just stick with OE ARB bushes.
  10. Sheldon, i may well have a part (front) or full (both front and back) cl5 if you want to try those first in my garage. Let me know. I have never had a set fail and its all i used for years. Not quite as good as cl6 but still more than good enough for the odd trackday.
  11. Interesting. What discs are you running? I have never had a problem with Rc6+ and EP ally belled with squealing. However i do a lot more sprints than trackdays so they probably dont get that hot normally.
  12. Sheldon, i did Le Mans it was 36c and the EWP worked a treat. A no brainer on a K IMO. You may have to butcher the N/S wheel arch liner at the front if you fit it there. I did but it does not bother me. https://forums.seloc.org/viewthread.php?tid=353170&page=1 I cant remember if you have Spitfire toelinks? Another must do IMO for trackdays. The only thing with CL6 is they do produce a fair bit of dust. It sticks like you know what to a blanket if not removed quickish. I was going to upgrade to the BBK till i tried them with EP ally bells (288m). I have never felt the need to since. I wrapped my exhaust after going through a couple of alternators. No trouble after that. I will be doing a trackday in March at sometime and will give you a shout. Let me know if i can help with anything?
  13. If its just for road use, stick to Bilsteins no question. Not surprisingly Lotus do know a bit about ride and handling. New Bilsteins and a decent road geo when funds allow would be my advice.
  14. Oh i see. A quick look at the prices suggested they were a LOT more
  15. Im not surprised looking at the price of the 625 Jesus wept
