Kind of anticlimatic.

If they spent a grand on the dyno, why didn't they get the A/F right? I mean, how many times do you have to damage parts because you're running too lean to get the picture that you should PROBABLY retune the damn thing?

They seemed overly careless.

:hehe: Thats what I was thinking.

I'm glad the Elise is using a Toyota-built motor.

That was a awesome video. the toyota and Sierra cosworth managed to go to 200 while the lotus didnt interesting... shows you got to have the right tuning and years of build up to get it right where you want it and know the limits of your car. while the lotus just coundnt get it right...i loved the aerodynamics section of the video as well it was great... :D

Holy shit, resurrection from the dead. Speaking of which...can we update this? I know you have a ton of good vids, Sean.

Well, with the advent of streetfire.net, youtube, and others, I felt like it was a lost cause.

I'll see what I can do. At least we could have a community discussion about particular vids, repeats or not would be irrelevant.

I just really cant believe those nuts did that in the rain- @ 175+ :bowdown: , I bet he could have hit 200 but with all the wheel spin he was getting, there was no way to reach there goal.
