  1. it's 2018. whats the best battery to get for the elise?

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    I recently made a switch from ETX20L to AntiGravity ATX20-RS. I've used ETX20L for YEARS, but it feels like the quality has gone down in recent batches. The stated cca was lower than when I first bought it and the warranty got halved. I benchmarked Shorai when I looking up batteries due to its...
  2. Looking to intercool my supercharged elise

    Lotus Elise
    I just remembered BOE 300/400 has provisions for chargecooling built-in to the intake manifold. but it uses TVS1320, not MP62.
  3. Looking to intercool my supercharged elise

    Lotus Elise
    OEM Elise supercharger uses MP45, but curious how you're running MP62 found on Exiges. You're going to have to go custom as no one, afaik, makes intercooler kit for MP62 that fit Elises. If that's the case, you could probably make Radium intercooler work with enough money/effort. Or go...
  4. ECU Master from MWR

    Engine Control (ECU)
    These guys seem to do a lot of EMU Black tuning on Lotus cars and sells PnP kits as well as remote support via teamviewer. https://www.rrrengineering.co.uk/ https://rrrshop.co.uk/emu-black-for-lotus-eliseexige-s2-2zz-dbw-1247-p.asp Komo-tec seems to have started doing the EMU Black stuff as...
  5. Donut Media - Lotus

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    Wow. They packed in a surprising amount of ACTUAL content in there. I hated how most of them don't even bother or gloss over stuff, but they did a pretty damn good job!
  6. Need help identifying current parts and knocking sound...

    Suspension (including wheels, tires, brakes)
    First, I'd check the obvious ones. Bushings and wheel bearings. I suspect from the description, it could be that the toe link ball/heim joint is worn out. And from the pictures, I think what you have could be the Sector111/InoKinetic's RTDBrace. https://www.inokinetic.com/lotus/rtdbrace If your...
  7. SOLD Lotus Evora 400 test car NOT street legal

    Lotus Cars For Sale
    Interesting! I guess they thought it was cheaper to dump it in the US instead of bringing it back to UK. Plates and everything ha!
  8. Wishbone bushings vs bearings - What's the verdict?

    Suspension (including wheels, tires, brakes)
    They're both vastly superior to whatever comes from factory and pros and cons are already well known, but I'm more curious about long term effects and especially NVH. I'm under the impression that if you do any street driving, plastic bushings are recommended over spherical bearings due to...
  9. Dream Car Acquired, Now What?!

    New Member Introductions
    Now what? Are you kidding?? Go racing, obviously~!!! 😁 I, too, was a kid growing up on Gran Turismo franchise, and I found myself gravitating towards lighter cars for handling rather than absolute power. When I bought the Exige, the fanfare sound effect from GT when you acquire a car in-game...
  10. Vibration after installing Powerflex engine mount bushings

    Powertrain (Engine, Transmission, etc)
    It'll go away after about 1000 miles. Or less if you autocross/track the car in between. I think most people take it out too early before giving it a chance to settle down. If anything, do only the rear one.
  11. Lotus Cup USA?

    Lotus Elise
    I think the series was sold off or became part of NASA(?). Then they only allowed the GT4 homologated cars like the Evora. I do remember watching a livestream of it a while back. I'm not sure if they had one this year.

  13. Weird Launch Control Tune?

    Lotus Exige
    haha, glad it helped! It's kinda fun to use it at autocrosses especially when it's kind of wet out. Here's me launching with it set to 4500 RPM. Variable TC was also set, and you can hear it go off at 0:33 mark. It won't save you if you do something stupid like trying to break the laws of...

  16. I wrote a comprehensive guide on replacing the Evora AC condenser

    Lotus Evora
    I've found https://howtune.com/ pretty helpful for other small works. They typically tend to be pretty thorough and easily searchable while being written up and submitted by common folks like us. I'm not affiliated or anything, but I do seem to use them every now and then just like how I use...
  17. Help Ssc Cables

    Lotus Exige
    a little hard to tell from the angle of the photos, but I'm pretty sure the rose joint of the gear cable gets attached to the gear level with a bolt and a NYLOC NUT. The nut has a nylon insert so it doesn't come loose. In your case, the nut looks like it's barely threaded. I think you should...
  18. Can you mill the V2 Arms?

    Suspension (including wheels, tires, brakes)
    I've seen a V2 arm get torn up. To be fair, it was due to a crash. While milling the side of it won't significantly degrade strength, I think I will opt to mill the upright. I might even consider going with aftermarket uprights, but I haven't bothered looking at the specs, but it might be of...
