Let it be known I cheated. I started in 2nd and he started in 3rd. He was catching up fast. That is one FAST FAST evo. On a Dyno log he makes 458 at the wheels. Its amazing what a GT30/76R size FP red turbo, and 31 psi on E85 will do for a evo x. Both cars are VERY quick.
The following was a spirited acceleration from 5 mph to 45 mph on a 45 mph road. :-)
5.0 V8 Lotus Seven replica (locost) TEST DRIVE
This is the second test drive of the V8 Lotus Super Seven replica I've been
building from the ground up. 3 years ago I started with nothing but some
square steel tubing, wire welder, and angle grinder. Thanks to everyone
that has supported me and helped me out.
