Starting over with this after a period of not bothering to update it – sure I’ll add some more content later. Most recent thing of interest that I’ve been doing has been putting together a Track Test video of the Lotus Exige S which you can find below.

Lotus Elise S1 – Cooling system tweaks and other fixes

PRRT kit fitted, new ball joint and alternator Problems with temperatures due to a hard to shift air-lock put me off using the Elise much last year, so decided to hell with it I’d get a PRRT kit fitted so that hopefully I’ve taken all the steps possible to stabilise […]

Lotus Elise S1 – Grille Refresh

Since the weather has been crap lately decided to do a few bits and pieces to tidy things up on the car. First up, removing the front and rear grilles to give them a bit of a tidy up and replace the fixings. Front grille came off no problem with […]
