S1 Front Hub Upright Complete (OEM Spec)
This Hub Upright has exactly the same geometry as the Original Equipment Lotus upright so is eligible to be used on race cars that must conform to OEM geometry but is made from Billet aluminium rather than extruded so it is stronger and stiffer.
NOW CLEAR HARD ANODISED NOT BLACK AS SHOWN
The hub upright itself has been designed to facilitate 2.5 degrees more camber than the OE allows so you don't have to shave down your steering arms or machine material off the already quite weak original upright.
A necessity on track use cars especially if running sticky compound tyres.
Eliseparts have been manufacturing uprights for almost 20 years and we have developed and improved the design with the help of Lotus Motorsport.
Many hundreds of hours of testing has been spent on both ours and other race vehicles including several successful entries in the Silverstone 24hr British GP.
This latest design is the ultimate upright for the Road and Track MK1 Elise, Exige and 340R as we have improved overall stiffness yet managed to save over 200 grams in weight.
Our GT uprights are installed and raced on over 200 Lotus race and track cars throughout the world.
The unit is pre-assembled and includes the 68mm Timken bearing and EN24 Forged Hub Flanges with OEM Wheel Studs.
Several companies have tried to emulate these but none offer all of the advantages and simplicity of ours especially at the price.
The complete unit is pre-assembled and benefits include:
1. HARD Anodised high grade aluminium dissipates heat better so increases lifespan.
2. Accepts the AP 4 Pot caliper OR the original 2 Pot calipers without the need for a heavy adaptor.
3. Bump Steer adjustment is much easier and more accurate.
4. Specifically designed and machined for more camber adjustment than OE.
5. CNC machined billet aluminium, much stronger but only slightly heavier than OE version.
6. Hard Anodised to resist corrosion.
7. Drilled M10 to accept AP 4 Pot Brake calipers OR the original 2 Pot fronts.
8. Will accept larger front Discs and Brake pads.
9. New 68mm OEM Timken Taper Roller Bearing.

11. Includes New Motorsport EN24 Steel Drive Flanges.
