if they are just for a set of race wheels, and you dont mind mismatched, you might be able to find an appropriate 6" 4x100 front wheel for import compact application. That should be a popular pattern and width. I am not sure about offset though. Of course the rear wheels are found easily. I cant think of any lotus specific vendor offering the smaller lss sized wheels in aftermarket, but it is probably not a popular size.
Packwood....maybe? If stars align and I get all my feces put in one place, maybe?
Once the dust settles wrt cars and trailers and wheels and and and....I'll be looking for Stuff To Do with the Lotus.
I'd say it is 30% at best this year. Next year? yeah, assuming I like autocrossing this thing.
Ran it at a T&T last weekend, did ~20 runs, discovered some issues with front bar (big bind due to a hamfisted bar-installer-person, not the PO, sigh), but got a handle on a couple of things, ID'd some issues I need to sort out, etc.
Should be good. Next event is a week from Sunday, should be on new Hoosiers/bar is sorted out/etc. Looking forward to it!
Yeah, I've done three events in the car and it's currently a little slower than my STR S2000 but it's magic to drive and at the last event, I learned how to left foot brake. I had been auto-xing for 9 years and finally tried LFB. It's a game changer with the MR chassis. I'm loving it. I came back from the last event convinced I had to sell the STR car.
My wife and I have chosen autocross as our motorsport of choice. We aren't very . Although the car is small, it has enough room for all of our gear. On longer trips we tow a tire trailer or trailer the car.
We have a year old toddler right now and he fit until he outgrew his lift-out rear...

Recently I got my dream Lotus Elise to perform dual duty between daily driving (within limits), and Autocross. I'm used to a harder car on the street as every one of my competition cars was also my daily driver. I realize that some compromises have to be made one way or another.
Sort of picking up where this thread left off:
I autocrossed an Elise with sport pack for ~5 years locally. I sold it in 2017, missed it immediately, and ended up buying a 2007 Exige S last fall, which...
I have been curious as to why I did not see any Elises entered in the SCCA Solo Nationals going on this week. With 71 cars entered you would think maybe?? (as the leading cars are the same that the Elise has done well against in the past...)
But while looking...I stumbled into BS and look at...
