  • Got a better idea: let's see you "engineer" an Elise so that you can actually drive it, regularly, every day for a month. Truly, I dare you.

  • What makes Ed think he can set up a Lotus *better* than either Roger of Matt Becker (father and son) , the two men who were responsible for far the handling of this magnificent car? That's like me deciding I am better managing a football club than..... whomever! So good was Matt that, after his father retired Matt was poached by Astons for a sizeable sum and he's now the head of Engineering! Many would happily say that those two are/were the best chassis set-up men in the country, if not, the world! Sorry Ed, you're a nice guy but..... I think I'll leave my Elise as Matt and Roger left it..... they knew more than you do, Ed!

  • News flash: Edd left and doesn't want back in.

  • A follow-up, with the head re-fitted, would’ve been appropriate. As this ends we’ve got a car with black accents, a presumably properly set-up suspension, and no source of power. Personally I think black tires on black wheels are boring.

    Daniel DravotDaniel Dravotپیش 3 ماه
    • Fully agree, black wheels are an ugly fad. At least the car isn't black as well. That is the worst possible look.

      Bob McLBob McLپیش 3 ماه
  • That lifting on the rear suspension pickup points isn't correct, and you CAN re-use the head bolts (but only the newer ones after meausuring actual length).

  • I just watched this whole episode on the Motor Trend app. I don't get why they only expected a Max of £14k after getting fixed if they were going for around £40k on the website that he was watching in the beginning. They never seem to make enough on this show to justify their time.

  • It's not accurate to say that the stretch bolts that hold the engine together can only be used once. The Rover engineers who built and developed it used them up to 18 times. You need to check the length is as original before re-using them, if they are overlength they have been stretched out of tolerance and can't be used. I've re-used them on a high compression 220bhp 1.8 litre K series race engine with zero problems.

  • Removing Bilstein Shocks and putting on cheap coilovers.................I agree adjustability is nice, but NOT at the expense of quality handling. Bilstein has spent millions if not billions in developing suspensions over the decades.
