This car is this weeks Tuned on Drive.
36 PSI? Thats crazy
I'll guess I'm gonna have to vote against this circlejerk. Fug wheels, hate the wing, hate the color. Kudos on the mechanicals though.

I am a huge fan of racing while there were no armcos, safety tanks, seatbelts, etc. etc. Jackie Stewart said there was a 2 of 3 chance of dying back then.
Circuit drivers today are more like pro atheletes than back then. They were 1/2 daredevil 1/2 fighter pilot in those days with death being present at all times.
That is why I rightfully respect rally drivers as the most skilled modern drivers. Forget circuit racing.
If you don't keep it below 5/10 or only drive fast at track=you are a streetracer and are going to kill babies soon and should go to jail.
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.
Additionally, if we're talking obscene Lotus, you can't avoid mentioning the Blackwatch Racing Auto-x car, three time SCCA X-prep solo champ. It probably makes half as much power as Frank's car but it also has some mad impressive bespoke fab work:
Except it isn't tracked and you can't use that much power in the canyons, he built it so he can brag online about how fast it is and he is a major dick about it too, he has been banned from nearly every forum.
And the car spends as much time in the repair shop as it does on the road
Edit: Yeah, heres cardomain posting a video of this car in 2009

I really like the interior appointments and the shifter layout but the exterior just isn't my thing... I cringe a lot of the time when I see an Exige or Elise done up like this with masses of power as the original balance of the car was geared towards handling. I can't help but think that having that much power in a car that weighs a bit over 2K lbs on such a short wheelbase makes it a white knuckle ride through the corners.
