When I bought the car last May, it was a mostly stock Ardent Red '07 Exige S, and I've been modding it ever since. I decided I had to have an Elise or Exige after driving my buddy's '05 LSS Elise through some canyons a couple of years ago. It was the first sports car in a long time that truly impressed me. My goal was always to drive mine on the track, so my mods have all gone that way.
So far: Gpan3, DS Brace, PFC01 front pads, Porterfield R4-E rears, Ate Typ200 fluid, Nitto NT-01's, Simpson lap harness, and most recently, Nitron SA's.
Still to come: Sys.6.pack, VForce harness bar, Tall Rails, The other 5 points of my Simpson harness (coming out of my previous track car), some form of improved intercooling, maybe a reflash
The car's a blast and I'm glad to be a part of this community. The Lotustalk forums are several notches above the other online car communities I've been a part of in terms of helpful posts, technical knowledge, and the friendliness of posters. It's good to be here!
