There are two laser blue Elise' in the Philly area. Robert has one and the other is a Euro S2 (don't know the owner). Regardless, hope this is not true.

There are some very shady characters in the Lotus retail and aftermarket business.

Update on Robert (Wallabyguy)

Hey folks, I just talked to Robert's wife and yes he was involved in an accident today. There are not a lot of details but what we do know is Robert was rear-ended and the car was totaled. Robert suffered a concussion, laceration to the head and a fractured vertebrae. He remembers nothing about the accident but believes the car did it's job and saved his life. Stephanie (his wife) asked that we all put Robert in our prayers for a speedy and full recovery.

My best for a speedy recovery. Glad to hear you're alive.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.
