It is, but I simply can't justify the high running costs.

Moving on to bigger and better things :thumbsup:

I'm still being really careful at the moment.
Every time I've taken it out so far it's been damp at best, monsoon at worst.

Plenty of youtube clips showing Vx's switching ends on straight roads with normal tyres in the wet let alone these AO48s

Instantly became one of the top ten best cars that anyone has ever owned on here for me! Nice choice! I looked at these a few months ago. They go well on track and road.

Helped my brother in law buy a Lightning a couple of years ago, and a mate with a Lotus Carlton had had a couple of Turbos (Current Stage 4). It was a no brainer in the end!

I'd better make sure I bring it to a couple of meets then. Its only done 16k!

Book says 4.2.
Acceleration is nothing compared to its cornering ability though!

But they have serious top end, just comparatively low weight at the back, so trying to put alllll that power down is a nightmare.

Plus those V8s sound awesome. I miss this from the 4 :(

Series 2 Elise Aluminium Tub underneath, although the track was widened for the VX by a couple of cm.
