    from my dad:

    bit more info .. the internals are stock , the early motors are bullet proof [ the mechanic said the newer ones are dumbed down a bit and break stuff inside ] . running approx 8 psi .

    the wing and front splitter [ check pix of front ] are worth , according to testing by the production sports guys , 2 secs a lap at e/c .

    big brake kit on way from uk to fit inside the bigger wheels + alloy rear uprights to reduce weight and heat soak in rear end . roll bar and harness and corbeau coming too , trimmed to match red interior . oh , and traction control on way for wet days :]

    performance figures , same motor in similar car with good but amateur driver got that p/box verified 3.9 0=100 mentioned above and a sub 12 1/4 mile . the other figures to be posted once located . the figures were up there with gallardo as buddy said above .

    similar package with carbon body , light weight and slicks holds production sports lap records , won the title and has a 1min point something wakefield lap record . even kwiker than a stove hot evo !

    and yes fatboyz , thats the same one you saw at e/c :]

    Very nice,

    You've ditched the Rover engine which is the Lotus' achilles heel.

    It must be awesome package on the track.

    its dad here .

    the s/c was part of the kit and dont know the tech details .

    snoop , just drive backwards .

    J , the evo still isnt completed , wanted to keep the balancer so the rev limit is reduced so we need to change turbos to get the grunt way down low . issues issues issues . modding cars opens up a pandoras box of issues , esp with turbos ! learning that :]

    i can honestly say this thing is WEAPONS GRADE , its scarey fast , takes a big breath before you can floor it and when you do the front lifts right up just like an amg 63 and the big power stuff like that . we ran a gallardo superleg and if anything the little hpe [ honda powered elise ] was a touch friskier from 60 - 120 [ i was driving the leg and walkie the hpe ] . up higher [ 140 - 200 + ] the leg would be quicker but low down is where its at for mine .

    retune starts tomorrow !
