      Not the same car, but still cool!

      Most of my project is a copy of the work Frank (aka Ronin) has done on his Exige. Frank (and others on MM, like CharlieX) is willing to freely provide insight to fellow enthusiasts, I admire that. Frank has posted very good information on Seloc, it can be found here: http://forums.seloc.org/viewthread.php?tid=152945

      I haven't followed much of his online antics, but Frank is funny to listen to. Definitely not the person who you might expect to see driving this car - at least it caught me by surprise.

      The car is nothing short of amazing.

      As I watch this video.. I came when I heard the supercharger, and then came when I heard the turbo spool behind it and then came again when I heard the BOV off the turbo..

      While I love old race cars (I used to help a family friend campaign his McLaren M6A) and I watch in amazement of what they did back in the day, I'm much happier today when there isn't a 1 in 3 chance of dying each time you head out onto track.

      Lol nobody "streetraces" except retards from light to light. It's about who is the fastest on the hill and who can keep up and who gets left behind.

      To some people this=streetracing.
      Driving that car anywhere near its limit on a public road IS dangerous no matter how "good" the driver is or thinks he is. I've driven canyon roads quickly in a car with 1/8th the performance of this Lotus and that was dangerous also. While it's fun to carve up the twisties I know the only place to truly prove your mettle is on the race track. Doing it on the street is just bravado and meaningless bragging rights. Even if the canyon road is 1-way it's still dangerous to extract that much speed on a public road. If you need radios, spotters, the cover of darkness, the isolation of 3am, if cops can arrest you if caught, etc. then it is street racing.

      Cars that can do 0-60 in 2 seconds have a hall pass to have loud styling.

      Wasn't worth that enormous cost. Much better to claim the other guy is a thief.

      Frank is his name? This wouldn't the same Frank who used to "race" motorcyclists up on Angeles Crest with his modified Ford RS200? I say "his" with a grain of salt as the wife was the one with all the money but he spent it like the a$$hat he was. In any case it sounds like a very similar M.O.
