Any Lotus owners have any experience with MK?

Looks pretty interesting, and I like the Indy cage-

Seems like a lot of value. I did notice they estimate about 300 hours to build. Caterham estimates are 70-90 hrs. I suspect you may have to panel the chassis. But if you're handy, it looks like it would be fun.

Great looking car, but not the greatest instruction manual. Lots of donar parts needed, also no wiring harness...have to make or buy aftermarket

I would try posing the question or searching for previous discussions here. I am considering a bike-engined build with the MK Indy R chassis (with cage) and it does look like excellent value for money for a modern 7 chassis with inboard front suspension and an independent rear.

Also take a look at the UK Locostbuilders sub-forum here.
