Lotus 7 locost pull with Evo X 10

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. :-)

Locost 7 First Drive!
No description required. (You can skip the first three minutes if you have a short attention span!)

First drive of 2010 Lotus 7 locost sr20det
More information at www.lotus7cars.com This was just a quick spin. I hadn't tuned the car yet with the new turbo and the new 264 cams so I never really stepped on it. Also you can hear my driver front engine panel pops in and out like a coke can when I go over bumps. I need to re-do it and make it tighter so it will stop. What a fun little car.

Lotus (Caterham) Super Seven First Ride
Poor car had been sitting for quite a while. Drained out the old gas, put in some fresh high octane. Did an oil and filter change. Cranked it for a while with plugs out until oil pressure registered. After that it started right away and I got to take it for a run around the (startled) neighbourhood. Still needs a tuneup and maybe fiddling with jets or timing/advance curve. Engine is 1700 Ford crossflow in "Super Sprint" tune. You can really hear the straight cut gears! Camera is latest Go Pro HD mounted on roll bar. I will try it again with the open case so we can hear more engine noise.
