Awesome footage, thanks for posting! Would love to know: top speeds, lateral g's, how much damage you sustained, HP/Torque you are running.

Cheers,
LP

Cool video! It's fun watching the Lotus catch all the higher HP cars in the corners!

Thanks for the comments.

Top speed would be around 260km and horsepower at the flywheel would be around 350-370hp, damage wasn't so bad, rear suspension and body damage.

We had a problem with the tune which dropped our top speed in a straight line.

350-370hp ... Thats a good increase.

What mods do you have for that gain ?

Std gearbox ?

ah, I was wondering why the 911 and Gallardo were so much faster on the straights with 350whp.

** save ~10 lbs gain 1 hp ** EQ: Y=(190*X) / (1984-X) where Y is (HP) and X is (lbs)

Me too...didn't like watching that part, but the turns were great!
