The strip down finally started.

by on 22nd February 2015

Well, I finally got started on Friday stripping the lotus for its suspension refresh and to sort that seized clutch. Gearbox is still installed but wanted to get the old suspension off first, makes it a lot easier. Here are a few photos: As you can see, ball joints are in a bad way!

How much does my Locost currently weigh??

by on 24th January 2015

I weighed my locost the other night. With the engine in, got a bit of a surprise, was heavier than expected, my 20VT is a bit of a lardy old motor!   Rolling chassis with engine and gearbox in: 520.9Kg. Bit gutted, total build will be now at least 650Kg – 700Kg.
