      They're not that bad IMO, just don't get behind on your inputs. They like proactive, not reactive driving. The only Lotuses I've driven where you can be sloppy and get away with it is the M100 Elan and the Evora.

      The car is somewhat twitchy as it has a short wheelbase, quick steering and a Dedion tube rear suspension, but that is why it is fun. Oversteer is very controllable, don't have to fight the car, but it is a very physical experience.

      So wait, he wears his beanie when it's not snowing?

      "nuts" is an understatment and driving in the snow didn't look nowhere near as fun (but I'd do it too if I could... )

      I don't think it would have ever crossed my mind to take my car out in the snow, but that sure looks like fun.

      Would love to do some sort of drifting type stuff with my car, but the dang tires are too expensive

      Digging up an old thread here... Saw an old buddy of mine last night and after chatting realized he was in one of these videos. I didn't recognize him the first time I saw it a while back, but he is the very large fellow whose bike was hit by the GTO. Small world.



      Some of thee videos are priceless.
