OK so a few of you knew that my car had been having electrical issues and was way down on power for quite awhile now, but after taking it to Allen and Stephan at VSA in Van Nuys, it has all been fixed.

They did incredible work on the car in concert with turbophil at BOE and it's running perfectly now. I thought it would be impossible to ever get it right and to show you how depressed I was, I had put less than 200 miles on it this entire year before bringing it to them. It even got to the point where it would blow the ECU fuse any time you'd turn the key. I thought the car was cursed, but they were undeterred and assured me they could fix it.

Now, I can actually drive it and enjoy it. These guys are miracle workers... or else they just know their stuff. :clap:

Anyway, I highly recommend VSA for all of your Lotus needs. :D Thanks guys! And here are a couple pics I took while my car was there.

Glad to be part of the team on this one--- probably the nicest Elise in the country to boot!

Take care man!

Glad you got her all fixed up, Anthony! Hopefully that means your car will be spotted out and about occasionally now. ;)

And VSA are THE BEST! Love those guys.
I still need to drop my car off at some point, but I haven't been driving it much lately to see how much it's acting up.

I certainly plan to bring my car there if I ever have any issues (since they're located in almost the same zip code as me).

.. tho I must say, their website could use a bit of help! (just a number and address!)

Were you depressed enough that you were thinking about selling it and just getting a Vette? :eek:

Mara, yeah I couldn't be happier. Nice to know that VSA has been taking care of you! :up:

Hehe, well I will admit that an Evora was tempting me, especially after seeing what VSA did to Ramtin's. :eek:

Haha, it's soo nice man! Oh and here's the video I promised you awhile back. Yes, this is me, but I am almost fully recovered now and only had to have my head amputated.

Now it's my turn. :eek:
Hell yes! :up:

Ouch! I just looked at their website. They need to fix a geeks car and do a trade deal for web design upgrade. Leave the mechanic work to the mechanic pros, leave the web design to the geeks. Also, you need to take the steps to "publish" your website to the search engines. This will allow others to find it without going through facebook to find your page. -poke-

Oh, I'm not doing the web design lol! Its a buddy deal. He started it in his free time and I haven't followed up with the completion. You can't beat free right!?

You should check out the VSA Facebook page. I keep it pretty current with pics and vids of what we have going on.

We're headed to the dyno with Ramtins Supercharged Evora and the GT4 this morning. We have 2 new tunes from to try for the SC car, and testing the new sequential tranny in the GT4. I'll make sure and post up some racecar porn for you guys:clap:
