I cannot believe how well the thing holds the road! (All self setup along with Rallyreason) using his works space and our home made geo rig and scales the thing is emense! I've played with the Nitrons settings and with 450 F and 600 R springs (the thing rides the bumps now Dean lol!)

I hate you both!

Past few weeks have been mega busy at work, so haven't had chance to get out for a good run.

Although every moment I've spent behind the wheel have been brilliant!

Dave C here ... I'm no use to you atall, but you might like to know I should be picking up my first lotus on Friday, it's an Azure blue s1 Elise :-)

Daveo C, yes, I think the key blank is a Vauxhall, but most key cutters will identify it straight off anyway.

 

Incidentally both Daves... Jumpjet's photo shows he has 11 litres of fuel left.  If you haven't found out already, when the display says 'Refill', don't hang about before doing so!!  I think I ran out in my first fortnight of having mine because of assuming it would have a decent amount of range to make the next petrol station.
