Dallasreed, that would be awesome if you could make the Wilmington Tour. It'd be fantastic to see another Lotus in grid.
Despite pulling several 10-12 hour days in a row working on the car including friday/yesterday don't think its ready for prime time yet so ended up not doing wilmington.
Still have some gremlins to iron out where I had some concern on the reliability of the car if I ran it at wilmington.
Haven't had it on the dyno yet. Still just street testing and ironing out bugs.
Tune needs some work yet. Idle is pretty sketchy.
I am having some issue getting it into 2nd, and only 2nd of course because thats the one that matters, even with the cables adjusted to the max right and forward the shifter hits the center console to the left and when pulled down it doesn't always engage. Shifts fine without the center console. Probably will change up the two screws on the sides of the the center console so it sits a half inch more to the left, and dremel out the end of it so it can sit more to the left and maybe dremel out the left side of the center console where the stick hits. If it weren't a problem with the SSM rules I would just leave the center console off.
The e153 shifts like a truck. Pretty vague. Don't really like the feel but gets the job done.
Also some issue with juice not getting from the alternator to the battery and the alternator works. been using a jumper straight to the battery for now.
Also I have the elements but not the mounts and endplates for the wing. And still waiting on my sets of 15x11 17x11 bogarts, although I have 16x8 17x9s I can run a7s 245/275 and the 245/16 fronts are not much different tread width than the 275/15 fronts other than bigger diameter. Would like the stretch though
not much substantial left outside of the above issues. Car is very quick, and corners like it was meant to, even without the big wing.
planning on doing 5 days of test n tune before nationals for what its worth
