Lotus Elan

Rear venturi on an Elan

PostPost by: stevebroad » Sun Feb 17, 2013 12:10 pm

The underside of the rear of the Elan seems to lend itself to having a venturi fitted. Anyone done this?

The exhaust location may be an issue.

My exhaust will exit on the side and I am planning to fit a shallow venturi - I just haven't got to that stage yet.

Hi Gavin

What are you doing to your car that requires a side exit exhaust?

Hi Steve
It follows a Donnington GT spec - flat floor, shell with removable front and rear bodywork running a 2l BDA (small valve BDG), ZF box, sierra rear diff etc etc. I'll probably run 9" front and 11" rear tyres. Suspension will be stiff because the cage is fixed to a spaceframe chassis but can be removed if needed.
The exhaust runs along the passenger side and the dry sump tank is located in the (what was) the passenger footwell.
I have posted some photos under my racecar - the proof.
Wish I could run to a sequential box like you.....
All the best
