DDPR Lotus Exige S2
It's been quite an inspiration here on Newcelica.org especially threads, posts and advice by DD Performance Research Jason and Dave not to mention Manny over on lotussport.org and a few emails to Rana. My car is a Lotus Exige, rather than going the normal route of supercharging I wanted to increase the drivability something akin to an S1. 06 the car weighed 920kg, now it's closer to my goal of 799kg, it took some serious surgery to achieve. Power thanks to the guys mentioned above is up from 189bhp to 231bhp giving me 290bhp per ton. Nothing new here I know (head scratching stuff on Lotus forums) but crucial in making the car remarkably more competitive on track overall. Anyway I hope it's of interest.....
