    hardtop and properly full tank of fuel, in that larger proalloy tank.. maybe the weighbridge was a bit off too? it actually weighed in at 858kg so i've rounded down

    also i think it's an optical illusion mr ree

      One number plate light out. WNB.

      Great option.

        Sent the car up to my usual chassis guy. Alignment was pretty far out: 11.50mm rear toe in & 5.20mm front toe in, max negative caster, 3+deg camber all round. Rear upper control arm bolts were loose. Rear ride height was 12mm lower than ideal which would have been messing with the roll centre.

        Now reset to 1.5deg positive caster, 0mm toe front, 3mm toe rear, 2deg negative camber front and rear. Ride heights set to approx 120 front 125 rear.

        Picking it up tomorrow and looking forward to a much better handling thing Got it corner weighted too. Bit lighter when the tank isnt absolutely full to the brim

          Just picked the car up. Tram lining and bump steer cured. Also swapped in the team dynamics wheels that came with the car, shod with new AD08R rubber. Good thing too as the ~2000kms ive done since I bought the car was enough combined with the terrible toe to scrub the rear tyres from "low" to "utterly f*cked"!!



          Peter had a Pantera in for some suspension work today. His excel cup car is on the next hoist. Always a funny dichotomy of cars in that shop




          Rear tyres




          Pit stop at pie in the sky whilst giving the suspension and tyres a road test

                Did an RTDC motorkhana last weekend with a bunch of toymods peeps. Foamy's V12 IS200 certainly drew some interest








                Chen of course being his standard weird self




                Anyway the elise did quite well, although the handbrake is as shit to use in a motorkhana as the AW11's one unfortunately





                Got a trackday at luddenham this saturday which should be fun

                  So Luddenham went far better than I expected. Ended up topping the timesheets on the day with a 52.035, beating a caterham superlight, two modified GR yaris', an evo time attack car, etc etc. Wow. Went 1.7s faster than the time I had previously set in the AW11 but that time is 2+ years old and the AW11 has evolved since then, so not sure what the real gap would be but nonetheless, the elise was much quicker than I expected. I did have one tiny issue, which was when I closed the passenger door early in the day the bloody mirror glass popped out!! Luckily it didnt shatter, although it did get a chip taken out of it. Taped it back on for the moment but I will need to sikaflex it back in or something soon

                  Video of the day here. The car was so reliable I did every session from start to finish, 66 laps!! As a result it's a pretty long video, the fastest lap is somewhere around the 46m mark.



                  Turns out even though it ws a public day and I had gone with some friends, it was also a day being used for VW nationals, so there were a lot of beetles, golfs etc too.

                    Those flame shots! <3

                    Cracking times and great to see you getting the most from the Elise.

                      I miss my old Elise. Good to see it being used as intended though.
                      If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

                      Police warn that blow-up dolls are not recognised floatation devices.

                          Yeah so servicing this thing is a bit of a pain in the arse. This is the whole space I have to play with to get to the oil filter. Not easy when it's on super tight!! Might look into a remote filter setup soon



                          Cool little easter egg on the sump though



                          Assuming restrictions are removed in time, there is a supersprint in August at wakefield park which I am planning on entering with the elise, just to see what kind of time it can do there. Given the performance at luddenham, I'm thinking a 1:07 isn't out of the question?

                            A 1:07 is definitely doable. I did 1.08.00 and I'm not that great a driver.

                            Agree that a remote oil filter would be a good modification. I considered it before selling the car.

                              If it goes faster than the AW11 I am going to have to press pgup on the boost controller a bit hahaha

                                With a properly good driver and the right track conditions I reckon the car could get into the 1.05s.
