  1. Car looks fantastic. Fingers crossed for some dry bright days to get out in it. Looking forward to more pics when you collect 😀
  2. Wow, some awesome cars there 😍. Thanks for the photos 👍
  3. Dave, you're right, Lotus state the Toyota engines are ok on E10 but mine has been mapped on 99 octane so try to stick to that especially if I am going to be giving it some beans, so that will be all the time 😅💨👍
  4. Quick post to say that if you are planning miles for smiles at the weekend, and need fuel, it might be worth getting some sooner rather than later. I got a tank full of V Power at Shell but only after trying two Tesco stations which had both run out of 99 Momentum. News reports suggest a shortage of tanker drivers to replenish supplies
  5. Congratulations, your car looks mega. I'm looking forward to seeing it in the flesh. Enjoy the peaks on Sunday 👍💨
  6. On my 220 Cup I have R888Rs on the factory wheels which I use when it's warm and dry. I have a second set of wheels with Yoko Advan Sport V105s which I use if it's wet or cool, so quite a bit of the time in blighty 🤣. I ummed and ahh'd for a while about a second set of wheels tyres but am pleased I did as I feel more confident going out in less than perfect conditions than on semi slicks. A set of Team Dynamics wheels popped up tonight on the Elise, Exige parts Facebook group for £450.
  7. Looks like a top day. Thanks for the photos, nice to see what a good time you have all had 👍
  8. Good work. Car looks ace 👍. Enjoy your day tomorrow
  9. There is a standard 220 exhaust on eBay atm at £250 (or best offer) which seems rich and it's been on a while so possibly a deal to be struck if you're after one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/lotus-220-cup-exhaust-system-/223534221698?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  10. Awesome news Mark, you must be well chuffed after such a long wait. Looking forward to pics and seeing it on a run soon 👍
  11. Thanks for the write up, that's really impressive work Dave, I can imagine the sense of satisfaction every time you drive it. I like the syringe hack, the insert fittings and will probably put my DA to work on my headlights over winter having read your method. Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh 👍
  12. Hi Cyph3r, it's great to hear that you're so pleased with your new FE which looks stunning in burnt orange and especially after a what sounds like an unpleasant experience with your previous Elise. Hopefully we'll see you out on a club run 👍
  13. Wow Harry, what an incredible amount of work (hundreds of hours..?), the car is looking fantastic and I can only imagine how excited you must be to get out in it for the first time. What sort of power are you hoping for, and what do you think the car will weigh?
  14. Congratulations, that looks like a serious piece of kit, hope to see it on a run soon 👍
  15. Good Morning All, I'm posting up my experience in case anyone else was thinking about getting their geo done. I have had my 220 Cup car for a year and it's my first Lotus so I didn't have a Lotus benchmark for handling but had wondered about the car feeling twitchy at speed so hearing how pleased Ray was after his car was geo'd at PJS, I thought I would give it a go. Nick at PJS did all the work which was very comprehensive and involved discussing options with me (for example, to ensure the car was equally sorted whether I had my Yoko V105s or Toyo R888Rs on) as well as explaining a
