So as most of you now probably know the Vx has gone to a good home and I've replaced it with a lotus. It's an S1 fitted with a std K20 Honda lump. The work was all carried our by Maidstone sports cars.
I collected the car on Friday from Jon and finally got to drive it for the first time yesterday. I was pretty nervous about getting rid of the vx tbh due to the countless hrs and money I had thrown into it but the S1 was something I had wanted for a long time so I simply couldn't turn down the opportunity. After the first few miles I instantly knew i had made the rite choice for me.
Here's a few pictures of the car when I got it.....
I originally had plans to fit the complete motorsport body but if I'm honest i kinda like it as it is. So I think I will for now just carry out a few simple exterior mods to put my touch on it and then concentrate on the underneath and most of all enjoy it!! I've already fitted a rear diffuser, front splitter, and the elise parts small front number plate holder.
I will be fitting my Carbon reverie seats(just waiting on some fresh seat pads from Ross ) and also of course supercharging the engine with a target bhp of 320-340 on a JRSC. I've already got the kit but hit a snag with the charge cooler unit as I pressure tested it and its leaking!!! so I've now ordered a Merc Racing inlet manifold, chargecooler and JRSC adapter plate along with there smooth flow inlet.
Cars of to the body shop on wednesday just for a few little bits......Carbon bonnet, Carbon side scoops, and a good polish to bring the paint to life
