These are my favorite S2 Lotus cars. It is heavily biased to people I know, people I track with, cars that are fast, drivers that are insanely fast, people that have done amazing things. I picked 12 cause, I couldn't find pics of the others ones, but they are out there. If you want to send a link to your non-Lotus friends about the nut jobs that own these cars and what we do to them, send them this link. I have left out many cars here...Patrick's 211, AJ's Time Attack beast, DPM's all carbon Elise, Randy's original autoX Elise...the list goes on and on. These are the ones I try to show people when they are looking for links online and what not.

Jack gets two cars in because well, he's Jack. We all remember Rachel's incredible race adventures. Alan's original flat black machine. Frank's latest incarnation of a death machine. Fred's national title monster. The Stig's spyder RIP. Perry's answer to the Stig. Brent's anti-gravity machine (aka the car Andrew didn't like). Manly's time warp machine...which I believe under his guidance is the fastest timed Elise in Time Attack. The beautiful Sector Exige. And of course, I start with my favorite my dear Liz.

It was actually top 13, but I couldn't find that pic of your car on two wheels at the BW Time Attack when you had to pinch the sweeper from that other slower car...post it up!

they vent the wheel liner. TJ from FVMC cut holes in the front and rear liners and put mesh in them too to stop the debris from flying. with all my aero mods, (wing, side skirts, canards, louvers, front lip, diffuser, and GUT sport fender) my car is extremely stable at high speeds. my car felt like it was about to fly off the road before once i got above 100 mph.

What engine is the in the Time Attack Exige?
The yellow one is an Elise, and it's a stock NA motor. The driver though is apparently not stock he is of the insane kind that hasn't heard of fear or death lol.


MNlotus - Love your car, so clean and done smart -

Frank's car? with the gimp rivets?

http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f3/ronin-mobiles-latest-transformation-71807/

thread right next to this one

it's a fully built turbo'd Comptech 2ZZ with 4? 5? heat exchangers, I don't know what the latest config is with internals but the head and bottom were done over - it's not a time attack car (but I guess could be if setup correctly for track) it's a canyon carver for the street

Funny...this is one of those threads which will cause a lot of us to say "hey what about my car!" :)

Thanks for the mention. We did spend about $25k in trying to get the car faster inside the SCCA rules, which was not easy. And we did pioneer some things with my car, which was interesting. We also did the Uberclam. And the original roadtrip and Tail of the Dragon debut.

The one car that is really missing (and certainly one can argue the merits of the various mods... as is true on ANY of these cars) is the World Challenge Exige from Hypersport.

I would also give props to the original blue ForcedFed car.
