I bought a set of parking brake calipers from a guy that makes them for the OE mounting position. His name is Frank Jakos and he can be reached at roverstuff[[at]]comcast.net. Then it's just a...

Found my invoice. It was $665 for all four. Your price will probably vary since that was two years ago AND I was getting some new parts that aren't a part of a standard rebuild, due to my own...

Sorry, quit my job and was traveling for a bit so this is a late reply. The effective offset is +20 front and rear. The fronts are +28 from Enkei and apparently some people run them without...

I was tempted to do that as well. However, there wasn't a good option for engine management that kept the readiness codes (kind of needed to "pass" CA smog). What I wanted was a flash tune for a NA...

I've ridden in a couple Torque 200 cars. They honestly feel just as fast as the stock Elise SC and maybe even slightly faster.

As a science experiment, I put my Elise SC on DRS' dyno to try to quantify the heat soak. My car has an exhaust and a DMC header that BOE shows to be worth a decent amount of power. How much? I...

As someone that owns an Elise with a stock supercharger, I have to say it's not worth the effort. I'd just get a BOE Torque 200 tune and call it a day. I was at Streets of Willow with another owner...

They're about $30 a set cheaper for my size, which isn't a big deal. I might just buy another set of wheels and go tire testing.

15x9s don't work in the rear unless you space it out to +12 effective offset. I'm running a 15x8.5 Hypergram spaced out to +20 in the rear and it clears the lower A-arm, but just barely. 15x8 in...

I'm a big proportion of running 225s with 9 inch wide wheels (see my earlier posts in this thread). Empirical testing has shown that over-tiring a wheel just doesn't offer a benefit. Regardless,...

16x9 +45 Advanti Storm S1. They require about 15mm of spacer to fit in the rear. Even then, it's tight and I'd need to run the suspension through its entire travel to verify.

At this point, I have 15x7.5 and 15x8 front wheels and 15x8.5, 16x8, and 16x9 rear wheels sitting around in my garage. I should just put them all with the same model tires and go tire testing. ...

I seem to be the lone voice in the Lotus community screaming about the benefits of having a lot of wheel width. I run a 205/50-15 on a 15x8 front and a 225/50-15 on a 15x8.5 rear (I can't reasonably...

225/50-15s are too tall for the front. Even certain 205/50-15s (like the Trofeo R) will occasionally rub the fender liners and the 225/50-15s are an inch taller. I have both sizes.

I'm late to this party but... I'd go with 195 or 205/50-15 fronts and 225/45 or 50-16 rears if running 15/16 (a setup I ran for many years). 245s are just a bit too wide for 8" wheels. Same with...
