  1. Yesterday
  2. Thanks for the info Kevin, especially the tip about the handbrake. Went to get it out of the garage yesterday after washing it two days earlier and it wouldn't move, then eventually realised the handbrake was seized on. As for the brake pedal pressure issue, Bibs on The Lotus Forum said I would notice a lot of difference from the TT as the Sport 220 doesn't have anything like the servo assistance that the TT has, which in turn allows for a lot more braking feedback.
  3. Difficult to say as it depends on how assisted the brakes on a TT are. You would certainly notice the difference from an older S2 to your S3. It should still stop like buggery though! Re the washing thing. If could be suds getting on the discs. Also, If you are letting it stand after washing it, leave the handbrake off. The brakes will stick. In fact if you leave it for any length of time, leave the handbrake off! Kevin
  4. Last week
  5. I’ve noticed that during heavy braking on my recently acquired Elise 220 Sport, I seem to have to use a lot of pedal pressure in comparison to an Audi TT for example. Just wondered if this was a characteristic of the Elise? I also notice that after washing it, the brakes appear not to work for a few yards before eventually biting. Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts
  6. Many thanks for this, and no I didn't know about the local area page, so many thanks for this.
  7. Welcome Lovely car! You've probably already seen your local area page on the (main) website but if not it's here http://www.lotusdriversclub.org.uk/?page_id=7719/
  8. Hi and welcome. Great car and great colour! Hopefully see at one of the driving adventures. Devon a little too far for a meet for us!
  9. Hi All, Just swapped my Kia Stinger GTS for this. Loving it. I went to the Re:Fuel meeting in Dunkeswell East Doven yesterday and saw three other Lotus's but unfortunately they were on their way to the exit. If any of you guys saw me it would be nice to meet up sometime for a chat if you're local to the area.
  10. Looking forward to this one. We're going to be doing the Curborough sprint day on the way up for the weekend
  11. Earlier
  12. Me too. Hopefully we won't have a repeat of the stormy weather from last year. I think we're planning on doing this on the way up to Cumbria for the weekend
  13. Yes its needs the linkage bush replacing sorted . https://www.elise-shop.com/gear-linkage-kit-elise-s1s2exige-s1-340r-roverpg1-p-93.html
  14. Looking forward to this after missing out last year.
  15. I tested an S1 bit like this when shopping around. The gear lever movement was like stirring paint and didn't re-center when let go in neutral. Some gears crunched but worked if you could find them properly. Could it just be the linkages? I suspect a lot of these problems are from the cars not being used for months on end. Things just start to decay and seize up. Hi btw lol

    Evening Robin. We are still in discussions with the organisers for CarFest South in regards to the clubs attendance this year. As soon as we have the club booking information available it will be published on the website, here and in Chicane. I'd like to hope this will be within the next month or two.

The dates (28 May - 7 June) on the calendar and event flyers are correct and haven't changed though so in the meantime if you'd like to register your interest you can email Jennie at j.wilson@lotusdriversclub.org.uk
