Shotgun racks are passe. I think they went out with the 70's. Handgun safes under the seat are where it is at now!Reddirt14 said:Despite the rumors an integrated shotgun rack will not be offered for the Texas market.
Regarding the bumpers, I still believe that Lotus will find a way to have bumpers that can withstand the 5 MPH standards.Donovan said:Exactly. While the Elise meets all the high impact standards, it doesn't meet the requirements for the low-speed impacts. I don't know the exact requirements, but it has to do with minimizing repair costs I believe? Somebody correct me if I am wrong. Because there are no detachable bumbers on the body work you have to replace the whole clam if the damage cannot be fixed. So big money.
Accomadating bumpers would require a redesign of the whole body meaning elongated body dimensions. Remember early Porsches and Lambos with the ugly bump stops on them?
