  4. Here is a very interesting electric powered Super 7 type replica from Switzerland. Start a U.S. dealership? It is light makes me think what an ice swap would be like.

  7. I found this when researching Ford Zetec and Duratech. Maybe it might be related to your problem. Intake manifold valve can cause the Check Engine light. If your car doesn't accelerate after 3000 rpm, maybe your problem is in that valve.
  8. Looks good. good price.............. maybe? Only name on the car is Lotus. Like all the Cobra clones say Cobra. At least the ad says replica.
  9. I couldn't find info on Lotus suing over 7 copies. Did Lotus sue over Elan copies? Colin Chapman's son said they shouldn't have stopped production of the Elan, Lotus sold 16,000, Mazda sold over a million copies (the Miata). in the 1960s, Toyota wanted to show that it was a player on the world automotive scene and they introduced the 2000GT Under the 2000GTs skin, though, the car is a near copy of the Elan’s chassis. There is no question that the Elan’s backbone frame, Chapman strut rear suspension, and general layout was copied by the 2000GT. Other than the two extra engine
  10. I did quite a bit of research before i bought a replica/clone 7. What I found is Lotus super 7's (made by Lotus) are usually the most expensive, they only made 2500, out of those the series 4 was often the lowest priced because they are not liked as much. Caterham's are the only legal continuation of the Lotus 7, they paid for the rights to the design, but they do not use the name Lotus, they are the second highest priced below usually the real Lotus 7 by Lotus. (I don't know if Lotus sued clone makers, Catarham did sue clone/replica makers). All the rest of the super 7's are replicas/clones

    Caterham OBD2

    I was curious why there was a problem getting OBD2 data on some of these cats so i did a search (after 1995 most cars are OBD2) and those 2 links plus others came up. For low production cars it said that full OBD2 data doesn't have to be available. I have a 95 GTI with an Audi 1.8 20vt swap with 2 different ecu's that are tuned the one that came with the car was locked by the company that tuned it making it hard to access to change maps, it is stage 2 tune 20 psi boost, it still has full OBD2 info which is great for diagnostics, it is a very complicated engine and a powerful ecu which is great

    Caterham OBD2

    I thought the link content might be helpful, i searched and didn't find similar content, if you don't like it I will delete it.
  13. I did a search to try to get info on Caterham OBD2 diagnostic data, these are 2 of the various links that came up, it did give information on this subject, so i am a bit better informed. This interests me because i have worked with OBD2 generated output on VAG products. https://purplemeanie.co.uk/index.php/2019/08/31/ecu-diagnostics-part-2-ecu-obd-and-can/ https://www.lotus7.club/forum/techtalk/caterham-mbe-ecu-obd-ii-can
  14. Colin Chapman was a pilot and a structual engineer. Tim Dutton was also an engineer, he worked as a consultant to car manufacturers as well as building his own cars. Dutton's cars were over engineered, they were strong. When you look at an early Dutton Phaeton chassis, you do have to be a little impressed at the economy of manufacture to make it quick, easy, and surprisingly strong. when you look at how the steel is cut so the next bit on the length can be used somewhere else with no more work, all open ends are properly capped off with welded plates, so water tigh
