"Your going to like the way you look"

I just saw Dan's car this last weekend and he's running the same set up on his ST Exige S. Now I want them too.

FS: Ghost in a jar

This ghost belonged to an Exige S owner and was said to give the car an extra 13 rwhp. It also improved the handling characteristics by allowing an almost, ethereal presence to guide the car thus not allowing driver mistakes. This mod is best used with an S111 or BWR cupholder or a Camera mount. Taking offers.

FWIW... I got mine from Francis at ASpec. Good guy to deal with... also has them on his Elise.

Had to order and wait 4 months tho because I could find them NOWHERE in the US!

Why don't you just rent a set of Cup wheels from ryan? That's what AJ and I are doing. He has 3 extra sets so that leaves 1 for you. Spend your money on shoes? Is this Coi or his gf talking? haha jk.

I thought Ryan sold all those extra Cup wheels a while back.
Sales fall through?
Edit: I talked to Ryan, he is planning on hoarding as many sets to drive up the demand so he can sell them at uber inflated prices. He mentioned something along the line of 6k a set with no wheels. 4k for friendos however. There may be hope for me yet. This is like some wall street shananigans.

Just got word, Loanshark just located 3 more sets of cup wheels and will most likely be buying them. Actually he just bought them. I wonder where he is getting these things. They are hotter than Miley Cyrus tickets.

Looks like he is getting into the Volk market as well. Francis may be able to get the wheels 6-8 weeks from now but Ryan will have them...in 2 days. He said he located a set of TEs and a set of CEs and will sell them to the highest bidder.

See but think of the cup wheel bubble like this...
A kid walking up a hill with a yoyo. The yoyo goes up and down but it's always going uphill.
As history shows, bubbles get big, pop, then get bigger than before.

Tell that to people sitting on old ZR1 Corvettes, pet rocks, cabbage patch dolls, and I-phones at introductory + prices.
Steve, if you own a pet rock or cabbage patch dolls, I truly am sorry. Not sure about the ZR1 but if you invest in a piece of technology, it will get outdated so you can't compare that. A cup wheel is like, a baseball card. Not many out there but there is enough demand to make it worth something. So if loanshark wants to hoard the wheels to drive up prices let him. Aren't you one of the demands anyways? As with the lotus community, you gotta pay to play.
