would love to see a video :) I had the "build your own locost" book but felt like I was cruising for a divorce with any other projects so I sold it on ebay!

Congrats, that's just an awesome looking ride - must be a blast to drive. What's the HP and torque #'s? That's on my bucket list to own, a 7-variant! Happy and safe motoring! How's the acceleration and handling compared to your orange Elise?

Looks like the engine is farther back than on most of these cars. Good!

Sorry,no videos yet,I just bought in September-I finished out the autocross year in my Rotary powered Spitfire (RotoSpit). As far ar HP and torque it has 135Hp and about 87LBs. of torque,but it seems to accelerate at least as fast as my supercharged Elise does 0-60! Handling wise I'm sure it will blow the Elise away-it is of course,a dedicated autocross car...
Here is the RotoSpit in action:
