Thanks for the welcome.

 

Has Dan Websters garage got a name? or website?

 

Having looked into things a bit further I think I will add the following:

1, DVA drivability pack for the VHPD

2, Eliseshop FIA rollcage

3, Modify the corbeau seat so I sit lower in the car

4, Geo setup with an option to change to nitrons if needed

5, Splitter and diffuser

6, clear indicator lenses

7, new harnesses

8, Yoko A048s or R888 tyres maybe on the eliseparts 5 spoke rims.

9, look at toe links if not already updated for the sport190 spec

 

If anyone spots anything else I should look at doing please let me know. Maybe refresh head gasket? but not been an issue...yet

Neither at the moment I'm afraid, but I'm working on both.

 

In the meantime I'll pm you my number, happy to chat anything through any time :)

Lotus Elise Sport 190
Lotus Engineering, Hethel, Norwich, Norfolk, NRI4 8EZ. Telephone (0953) 608000 Telefax (0953) 606884

The ultimate powerhouse, for serious track work

Developed for the dedicated track fan and for fully-fledged motorsport applications, the Elise Sport 190 is pure racer. At its heart is an extensively modified (each engine is meticulously hand-built by race technicians) version of the standard 1.8-litre engine, kicking out a breathtaking 190PS (140kW).

This mighty powerplant is known, appropriately, as the VHPD, or Very High Performance Derivative, and can hurl the featherweight Sport 190 from standstill to 60mph in 4.3secs (0-100km/h in 4.4secs) and to 100mph in a supercar-slaying 10.72secs.

And as you'd expect with this extraordinary level of performance, the Sport 190 is equipped with competition-standard suspension, gearbox, brakes, wheels and tyres ± fitted and set up by the same technicians who developed the car in the first place.

Because each Sport 190 is specially built to order by the Lotus aftermarket department, your car can be tailored to your precise needs, whether you're heading out to the track for some high-octane fun, or are chasing a major motorsport championship; the list of available options is extensive and comprehensive.

And it's worth noting that your existing Elise road car can be converted to full Sport 190 spec, either in one go or a piece at a time.

In all Cool car

Eddie.

TBH, a good check by a proper motorsport specialist (lotus, radical, single seater etc.) should be what you need. When you know the car is set up properly (or as per factory or known spec), try it, play with it and then reset it up to what you like (in my case, it is set up to minimise negative effect of my poor driving skills).
