111R Owners Manual

Here is some info from our 111R's owners manual.

After initial break in period of 1,500km use only 5W-40 synthetic motor oil.

Trans fluid weight is SAE 75W-90
Factory approved coolant is Havoline XLC
Unlaiden weight is 860 kilos


I though some of you might want to see this.

Best Wishes,
Mitch

1892lbs-yippee, and that's without the sport package savings.

I don't think the 111R comes with the twin oil coolers either that must account for 40 lbs. or so.

Great, rain on my parade. Now I've got to find some metal matrix rotors.

Our 111R has twin oil coolers, but it does not have air bags or the US sports pack, or the hardtop. Yeh it sure is one light car

Sounds like the only difference is the air bags. They can't weigh that much. I'd be very happy if the U.S. Elise with the Sports package came in under 1900LBS. It sounds soo much nicer.

Oh- I thought the coolers were an option for hot climate markets- whoops.

Hey Mitch,

That must mean mine has twin oil coolers too. Cool didn't know that.

Thanks,

Anton

Yep, You've got em on your Yellow machine. John is now at Clipsal this weekend crewing for Peter Boylands M3 in Nations Cup. Look for him on the Teli when the car comes in the pits.

Best Wishes,
Mitch

Surely the incremental weight addition for 2 airbags can't be much these days - hell the whole mechanism fits in something the size of a fist?

That'd tell me that the standard car is gonna be 1900 near as dammit? With the Sport a tad better?

WHOOOOOPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

They surely did it they did surely.

Yup, I'd like to keep my Elise in the 1800s even when I upgrade to the S.C. Race day battery, light weight rotors, titanium exhaust, light weight flywheel, and any other way I can shave off a few pounds.

Gang,

I think it safe to say our US Elise will be one of the, if not the lightest car sold in the USA.

Best Wishes,
Mitch
