New Geometry & 4-Wheel Aligner Now Installed

After our workshop expansions during 2009 we planned space for a new alignment system.  Installed in August, our state-of-the-art John Bean Visualiner 3D system has allowed us to provide micro-fine adjustments to geometry and wheel alignment for dozens of happy road and track drivers.

We are now able to achieve complete geometry adjustment (including ride-height if required) and 4-wheel alignment while you wait.  Times can vary depending on the vehicle and condition of the suspension, but we are usually able to complete a full alignment within 2 hours of arrival.

Prices start at £25 for a diagnostic check to find out if any further work needs to be done.  A 4-wheel alignment (front track, rear toe and thrust line) is £60.   A complete geometry adjustment (camber, caster, ride-height) and 4-wheel  alignment starts at £100.  All alignment checks and revisions come complete with a comprehensive print out that shows before and after settings.

Strong, Lightweight GT Toe-Link Kits

Track Day enthusiasts running on semi-slick or slick tyres usually find that their rear toe-link joints wear out at an incredible rate.  Worn inner and outer toe-link ball joints will make the tail end of your Lotus feel sloppy through corners and uneasy over undulations in the road surface.

Que our lightweight GT Toe-Link and Brace-Bar Kits.  Designed to introduce total accuracy to the rear toe-link assembly, the kit of high-precision sperical bearings (rose joints) and high-strength bars with mico-adjustment means you can setup and maintain your rear toe for much longer without the need to replace worn ball joints.

Available as a complete toe-link and brace bar kit for all Toyota-engined Elise, Exige and 2-Eleven or a  toe-link only kit for Elise S1 and Elise S2.

Hangar 111 Wins Best Trade Stand!

More news as it happened today!

We have just received the Best Trade Stand award at this years Club Lotus show at the Malverns Showground!

Our stand featured our latest range of products for the Elise, Exige and 2-Eleven including Signature Sports exhausts, the new Hangar 111 alloy bell and rotor brake discs and our monaco race seats. The Elise S1 on the stand featured a Turbo Technics supercharger kit (200bhp K-Series) – for which we are now the official technical service and repair centre, and our Supercharged Exige S2 280s (280bhp and 180lb/ft) fitted with our latest in-house developed chargecooler system.

The award was presented to us by Alan Morgan, after a successful weekend where we met with many new and existing customers. The award is the second we have received for our exhibition stands at Lotus events.

Many thanks to all those who turned out to see us. We look forward to meeting you at our open day on the 25th.

Sincerest thanks go to Alan Morgan, Sam, Annie and Jane from Club Lotus for laying on an excellent show – more than worthy of replacing the previous Donington Venue.

Kind Regards,
Marianne @ Hangar 111

Club Lotus Show Update


Update from the Lotus Show at the Malverns!

The drive was a little longer than usual, but the ash cloud from Iceland kept the roads (and airports) fairly clear for a good run through.

– New venue is very good – thanks to Alan at Club Lotus for choosing a good venue over the sadly unavailable Donington.
– New Elise looks great – image attached.
– Our stand also looking good (well in our opinion!).
– Lovely Type 72 edition Exige from Williams of Bristol.
– Prototype Chargecooler cover not quite as good as we would like but show-worthy (fingers crossed!)
– After some late tweaks, our exhaust display stands can finally accomodate our new signature series exhaust systems.

The sun is out and the car parks are packed. Far busier than any previous Donington event Saturday.

And finally – it is so nice to see this event so well subscribed to by all the enthusiastic folks (traders and public). The international attendance is also heart warming. We will always support the event for the simple reason that it’s the only place you will find a truly complete Lotus experience – Classic, Modern, Road, Race and vintage – It’s all here. Bring your kids, friends and family and show them the entertaining history of the Lotus marque.

Long live Lotus!!

We hope to see you at the show!

Regards,
Greg Lock
