I am curious how did you get the car out there Lotus F1?
The only real test... It was driven!

My car has visited Phil & Andrew twice so far. The first time I drove it out and towed it back to CO. The second time, a couple years later, I towed it out from CO (thanks Ross!) and had it transported back to CA. I had some teething issues on the front end with my Rev300 setup, but after some updates it's been pretty solid ever since. 1,825 lbs + 300 hp DOES NOT SUCK.

Earlier in this thread someone referred to Phil / BOE as a "vendor." Fact of the matter is that they are innovators and trusted advisors in this Lotus love affair / journey that many of us are on. That's a rarity in this car game. We are lucky to have them. Vendor? NFW! Partner? Yes, absolutely.

Thanks again guys.

Fun with cars
