Thanks.

Yes...... just a wee bit more hp -- 255 -- but I think Lotus was conservative.

Jack is there an accusump in there or have they done something different in the Cup 255? The front brakes and the battery setup look great - is that all standard or have you upgraded some parts?

Interesting place to mount the remote reservoirs. It's now easy for you to read the part number off of them, Jack

Did the Odyssey battery come from Lotus Sport like that?

Cup cars have electric windows. How about that.

Where did that downpipe/de-cat come from? The first part right after the exhaust header is the stock divided piece. I like the idea of retaining the divided section.

What type of harness system is installed? 4-5-6 Point? Could you provide a photo of the attachment points for the lap belts and the sub belts?

Thanks,

Ha! Power window!
Why? ---the company that manufacture the manual windows is gone now so power windows from now on until lotus can source its supplier.

Exactly...and Lotus had no ash trays in stock.

BTW, where is the ash tray in the Exige -- I can't find it?

Thanks, Simon.

Good to know. Whatever the reason, the power windows actually work out better with the roll cage. You can now raise or lower the windows without the need to open the doors. Saving a few ounces isn't bad either.

Yeah, I was a bit surprised to see that, but you know Lotus.

Frankly, I think it was a mistake.

FS -- brand new boot carpet, never raced....LOL

In response to some general questions --

1) The accusump is still there.

2) The lightweight battery and neat mounting bracket came from Lotus Sport -- "standard" on the '07 CUP.

3) The cat delete and Stage 2 is a no cost option, BTW, no CEL either.

4) Lotus Sport embroidery on Recarro seat is the way it comes from Lotus Sport now.

5) Harness is a six point for the driver

6) This batch of CUPs came with an alcantara covered Sparco steering wheel.

7) Intercooler is obviously larger and it appears the piping is of a greater diameter as well. As a result, there is less room between the piping and the roll bar supports (which are also thicker than stock), which explains the re-location of the Ohlin canisters.

8) No mods to car yet -- what you see is the way the car came off the transporter from LCU.
