What would be impressive would be if he came up with a full body option along the lines of the lotus 2-eleven.

Less than 400kg isnt that light really, I heard someone on the MK stand at Stoneleigh bigging up the lack of weight in the Sprint r at 370kgs.

My GTS panther with some non essentials weighed in at 480kgs so the weight saving isnt THAT big imho.

Its going to weigh even more when its triangulated properly

Should you perhaps not ask him then??? P.S. I saw the car a few weeks ago down at Martins gaff and it's coming along nicely.

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a
car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes
and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

I would say 400kgs for a 2 seater midi is super light,in fact it would be difficult to get a buget 2 seater much lighter,don't forget the sprint r is a single seater at 370kgs,I am sure martins onto another winner there,I too would love to see a full body on it,I think the market is crying out for a buget full bodied midi,but lets see what this one drives like 1st,then hopefully it will progress from there

I must be in grump-mode... I think it's completely lacking in imagination.

I have no problem with the midi concept, but do we really need another 7-esque bodyshape?

I reckon the roll bar looks a bit of an after thought would look nicer if it went all the way to the lower rails

But then what do i know
