my current car: a 1998 M Roadster. Love it, but LUSTING over a black or grey elise. So jealous of you guys.

Before lowering it

lowered

Soooo it's nothing special, but it sure is fun! After putting on a much bigger, stiffer rear sway bar, it will actually oversteer instead of understeer (kinda scary in a fwd car!). I just wish it had more power...

Nice cobra sn8byte! You'll probably find the elise a little slow and want to turbo it after owning that beast! Let us know how they compare though..

Cobra was fast...

Yes, the Cobra was stupid fast, 165mph on the front stretch @ Willow Springs. I could pass everything including Lambo's, Ferrari's, and Porsche's with ease on the straights! But in the turns stinkin Miata's could run me down.

So I decided to get a more BALANCED car with an emphsis on slotcar like handeling...

Elise has it all! Decent acceleration but wicked cornering. I can't wait to get a nose bleed in Turn 9 @ Willow !!!!

the mini is hot. That's the color and body kit I'd get also, but with black roof and wheels. Where did you get the wheel arches painted?

The mullet mobile is sold, but I built that motor, same with the Beetle. The white bimmer has 18" 7 series wheels now, the MG (for sale) is not shown, and the 1957 Anglia with the built 289 V-8 is for sale. The Cannondale has different tires. Oh, and the Buell has the body back on it now. haha. Not very good pics but it's what was in my photobucket account when I found this thread.
