Haven't played with the Evora yet. We're working ont he next batch for the 111 paltform. It will have a small receiver this time around for bike racks and the sort...
I'm glad you are still making them... The improvements sound great. I hope you get a chance to do an Evora one soon.

How much do they sell for new? Has a max tongue weight been calculated?

I'd be interested in one if they are made again as well. Think they could handle up to 120 lbs tongue weight and ~600 lbs pulling? I'd like to be able to pull a motorcycle, either on a small harbor freight type trailer or a trailer in a bag type (Trailer In A Bag - Motorcycle Trailers - Scooter Trailers - ATV Trailers - Trike Trailers).

No problem with those loads. I can stand on the tow bar...

We have one client who pulls a thistle sale boat with his Lotus. The bike rack is common as well...

More later this year

Fantastic news. This might save me from buying a truck and trailer.

I'm assuming those of us with 5- or 7-element diffusers would need to use the stock diffuser while towing and swap out at the track, correct?

I would be interested in a front tow bar or hook only for an 83 Esprit if one is available.

November and December should be deleted from the calendar. They're just too busy!

Had to take a break on tow bars, but back at them again...

I must say, they're looking good
