Do you have service records? Approximately how many of the miles are track/autox do you think? Have there been any major issues? Warranty issues? Why the sale? Original parts before mods?

Car has been serviced (somewhat fanatically) since new by local Lotus dealer. Estimate around 3,000 miles are on track, rest are street, no auto-x. Usual collection of warranty fixes.

Major issue was gearbox failure in April - 3rd gear is a weak spot in the stock gearbox used for track and eventually fatigues - they are now starting to fail. The Close Ratio gearbox is a nice upgrade but very expensive - the primary reason was to use stronger gears and ensure it didn't happen again. Gearbox and Limited Slip now have just a few hundred miles on them.

Car is being sold because I want to race Spec Miata in 2010 - and it's been explained :rolleyes: that one toy car is my limit.

Original parts are available only where is says "reversible" in the description.

Please PM me with any more questions.
