Great progress. The pro alloy CC is great.

An awesome build.
So as someone permanently iterating around which Lotus I should be driving and to what spec, my question is will 270bhp and sub 900kg be enough to make this a first choice track car vs the 3-11, or is it more of a wet track day set-up?
No offence to anyone here - obviously Dave has run a range of high power cars and so interested to know how those who are truly 'Seriously Lotus' look at things.

Add to the mix the price of each, one is 30% of the ££ of the other
One has a roof/wind screen
One is smaller/lighter/ more nimble.
Two totally different animals
Would i sell the 3Eleven, not a chance, am i looking forward to using the Elise yes, Will i still use the 3Eleven- yes

I get it. I was hoping this might answer the - do I take my Elise Cup to RRR or get a V6 Cup of some sort question.
But I guess that I just need both!
Anyway - sorry for the off topic ramblings.

Ive had an S2 Exige with 300 bhp and sequential, Then a 360cup, then 3 Eleven.
Would i go back to any of them? Possibly all, but they are SOOOOO different in how they do the same job for me (Trackdays). They all havae there own pros and cons!!!!!

I had a ride in a 3-11 with KT475 bhp kit and Ohlins at Bilster Berg recently.
It felt awesome - just very responsive to inputs (cliche but just went wherever the driver put it) and very confidence inspiring grip wise - tho maybe we weren’t pushing the real limits even if we were overtaking most things.
In simplistic terms it’s an Exige 430 Cup on Ohlins with a LSD and minus 100kg.
I really need something with a roof.
If you have a v6 Exige with similar power and Ohlins / lsd would it drive like a 3-11...??

How did you get on with the sequential on the road? What about rebuilds?
O/T so apologies!
