I had been looking at those a while back. I think its time to pull the trigger.


I know you guys don't give a choice but I would love it in red!

Thanks

Tonight was the first time I used mine due to extensive work travel. Man what a time saver and easy way to lift the Evora! This was an extremely good purchase, Thanks Shinoo!

Yeah, these ought to come with the car. We have the one made years earlier by another supplier but it's the same design.

I had our Difflow made with the central vanes a bit shorter so this would have better access, and to be a bit different. That does not mean it won't work with the full sized vanes, just my experience.

Again, a tool you really want with these cars. Indispensable.

To give credit where it's due, the "other one" is the lift bar created by Jim Clayton years ago, which s111 completely ripped off the design of and slapped their logo on.

No, the design is different as this one uses rubber bumpers to better deal with angles seen during the lifting operation plus improved grip. This one also has two positions based on Elise or Evora. I agree the concept is the same but this version has clear improvements.

Clayton made a heavier gearknob a few years after S111's. Some good ideas get copied and in some cases, improved upon.

Hey it's a great thing to have, when I put the Evora up on stands it would have been very useful. I rigged up an almost comical combination of jacks and boards.

I do like the soild metal tubes to engage the bolts. Have not used the Sector offer though.

Anyway, glad these are available.

Fair enough. The rubber bumpers would make a positive difference in grip while lifting.
