Default Hi everyone! Lotus convert here :))

Hi folks,
I am new to the site but have been checking it out prior to just last week buying a 2014 Z51- awesome car!! I am coming out of an '07 Lotus Exige S (2000 pounds, 220HP supercharged) which has been awesome, but getting a bit harsh for me for long road trips. Just drove the Z51 back to California from Minnesota (!) and I have to say- this is an amazing car! Can't wait to get it on the track )

And thanks to all you awesome knowledgeable folks on this forum!

Cheers,
Karl

Thanks for all the welcoming words! Once I get this baby on the track, I will post some comparison thoughts between the Corvette and the Lotus. I probably did 30 track days between my Elise which I had for 2 years, and the Exige S which I had for 4.

Already, I have to say they are two very different animals, but they are both animals, hahaha

Cheers
