Lotus Elan

Part source ?

PostPost by: cabc26b » Sat Dec 22, 2007 8:17 pm

These always looked custom to me ( or modified) but they worked and appeared to be strong enough...... until the hard landing after my roll .

Do these look familiar to anyone ?

Thanks

Hi George

These are the rear arms I bought from Ray at RD Enterprises 10 or so years ago, similar but not the same. I think Ray was getting some of Tony Thompsons parts, maybe the same source?

Thanks Gary -

I have also heard that Ray gets his elan racing parts from TTR -

Ed - thanks for the photo and Help -

Looks like I may have to get a pair of new arms - I am thing about a set with rod-ends on the outer's and sperical bering on the inner's.

Does anybody have a picture of a TTR ajustable arm and an opinion on them ?

Anything that Tony T sells is top quality, same goes for Pat Thomas; they have both been top dudes in Elan racing since the dinosaurs disappeared!
I've just fitted Spyder adjustable bones, so now there are three sources. I'm not sure which (if any) of these are strictly homologated items; might be best to check if you are running in a strict class.
:wink:

Cheers,
Pete.

I am afraid adjustable "bones" are not FIA homologated for the Elan....At least not for period F. ( -65). ( - unfortunatley..!!!) :cry:
