  1. First track day questions

    Lotus Evora
    You'd want to OVERFILL before you get there. Take a run and "read" the tires. An instructor or someone experienced can help and recommend where to go from there. You want to firstly not roll over the tread to run on the sidewall. I would tend to start at 5-10 pounds OVER what's listed for...
  2. four post lift failure

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    Had one of the cables snap on mine. It was before the first catch so I was able to lower the lift and drive the car off. If this happened higher up, it would have stranded the car until a new cable could be installed. Although mine is a cheapo Chinese lift (anything under about $3500 is this...
  3. Help if possible in MA

    Northeast Region
    It's stainless steel. A real hardware store will have them and even Lowes has some.....likely this size as it's pretty standard.

    Sam, I'm sure I have something to get that out. I do have torx. You're welcome to come over.
  5. Car Won't Start. Tried everything. Help!

    Lotus Elise
    Not saying this is the solution, but I used to own an Alfa Romeo where some previous owner had replaced the start wire from the ignition with a smaller gauge. There was enough current that the voltage drop in the wire was enough that it wouldn't consistently engage the starter solenoid. The...
  6. Passing inspection with engine swap tricks?

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    Is it a JDM ECU without OBD or are you using a USDM ECU, which would have OBD. You may want to look for tuners who specialize in JDM engine swaps. I know Lachute Performance in Montreal and Matt Minor in Rhode Island have done OBD compatible setups in other cars.
  7. Elise wheels, Dark Gray Metallic, Boston area

    Parts For Sale
    If I were up to par, I'd build boxes and ship. Because of the surgery, I can't lift more than 8 pounds, can't drive, can't pull anything. I can make my own breakfast (couldn't say that a week ago).
  8. 2005 Lotus Elise price question.

    Lotus Elise
    It's fine as an asking price but has many $k of room. I sold my 27k mile 07 touring, no race, perfect body/paint, upgraded Lotus wheels, proalloy radiator, heated seats, leather center console by lotus with only soft top, no sport for $32k. What else is available to you is going to steer the...
  9. My mouse hunt, round II.

    Lotus Elise
    In my garage, under my rollaway tool drawers is a kitty litter tray full of anti freeze. The space between the rollaway and the tray is too small for a cat or even a squirrel to get in but mice get in. I empty it a couple times a year and it usually has a dozen mice in it. I also have those...

  12. Potential Lotus Elise Buyer New to CA

    New Member Introductions
    It's a bit expensive for the miles and the $1000 to repair windshield crack. Things to check: Has the oil line recall been done? Does the car have an OEM radiator or has it been replaced with something all aluminum? The plastic end caps tend to simultaneously crack and require clam off...
  13. '05 Elise Salvage Appraisal?

    New Member Introductions
    My concerns..... First, from a financial standpoint, I sold my 07 Elise touring in near perfect condition with known previous owners and history with no track, all the things needing attention done (thermostat, oil lines, radiator, clam kit) and a lot of extras purchased from Lotus or...
