    Some fun car stuff from tonight (vid)

    Went out with some friends for icecream tongiht. Son was with me and the topic came up that I have never "launched" my car. I dont know why I have not, but I just havent. I have never used launch mode in any car I have owned. So I figured tonight would be as good a time as ever to use it!

    Car is putting out 860+hp and all 4 wheels spun for a bit, but windows were down and sound was glorious! My son was laughing his a$$ off.

    We spent the day earlier giving him stick lessons since we have a track day in a few weeks and I will be bringing out the lotus for the first time on the track. It is very different from this car but just as much fun to drive!

Got a little too cocky by his last session and spun out in turn 4...but he kept it on the track








    Just bought a lotus that I am now teaching him to drive stick. We have our first track day coming up in this car so I am putting him though his paces to be ready for the track.

    Now that's what I am talking about. I am not a car guy, more an off road truck fellow but it sure is nice to see people drive them like they were meant to be and not just back and forth to work as a status symbol. Those are memories you and your boy will have for ever ID, I enjoyed the video and look forward to more.

    Awesome stuff, iDude!

    all but the orange slice on wheels, but yu'll save on wiper blades over time so that's a plus. It is a itty bitty windscreen, so makes sense they put one big 'ol wiper.

    Yes, I'm a tad jelly.

    Thanks man. Getting it out of the track was a lot of fun. Even more so, riding shotgun! Looking forward to more track days!

    The little Lotus is somthing all together different. Dont know how to describe it, but its the most connected I have ever felt. No power streering, 1900lbs. Just feels like a go-kart. Looking forward to finding it's limits on the track. Been getting some practice in on the sim. Probably a little over the top, but allows us to run tracks before we ever get there and figure out our lines and shift and braking points. Yea....you could say I have gone overboard a little, but this summer has been filled with great memories!

    Right on, Dude! Nice home sim racing setup. Hardly over the top from my view.

    and I totally dig what you're saying aboot the snappy, tight Lotus. Sounds awesome and like an experience I'll never enjoy in such a small car, unless I saw off my feet and work the pedals with my bloody tibia stumps.

    Ahh forgot about the height thing! I'm 5'9 so I never think about that stuff. Have a buddy who is 6'4 and he sat in it. He could drive it, but probably not with top on Up to about 6'2 you can do the elise. Any more than that and it would be tight(er). Maybe 6'1 if you need to wear a helmet for the track. But anything over 6'1 6'2 is tough to get a helmet on in most exotics. Porsches have the most head room for taller guys.
