Thanks for sharing this journey it was a great ride and you did right when you had the experience you got with the car not knowing they was just 3 where you are and passing this to someone else and letting them experience what you did on your journey maybe they will use it every weekend rather than a couple time’s a year your awesome and as you said you had a blast of a time with the lotus and you made it better than what you bought it and that’s the best part about it fixing it making it better and letting someone else enjoy it too 😊

I just love how everybody in the comment section knows how to perfectly revv match a tuned Exige. And they all know how to drive through Bathursts perfect lines. Y'all must be track gods! Not. Dick heads....

Bathurst is such a good track, love playing it on forza. Unfortunately that's the only way I can experience it, for the moment at least. I hope 1 day I'll be lucky enough to get there and drive it

Well done Moog. Doing 210km/h in that little Lotus with no roll bars to protect you is no small thing. Its on my bucket list to go to Bathurst and see what this iconic track is like.

Great project whilst it lasted but whole heartedly agree with reasoning to move on. Buy it, have fun, then let someone else have fun. Lets share that happiness rather than keep it stored and collecting value. Fair play MCM, Keep inspiring👍

Dear Mighty Car Mods, Marty and Moog you guys are the reason I still love cars. You have gotten me through so very hard times and still are. Driving is one of my only outlets and the last segment on the video about getting over your fear and feeling almost one with that car is why I drive. I love the noise and true freedom it gives. Moog you did such a good job describing why we must keep driving and enjoying every small drive. Thank you

I bet it must blow your mind when you take a moment to step back and think about where you've come from. Who could have predicted that mucking around in your mums driveway would lead to such a memory like this. I bet you'll be riding high on this memory the rest of your life. Nicely done, lads.

Sharing the experiences along the way and making sure the car is used for what it was built for. You guys are the real deal and keep it up!

Hello mates! I just wanted to check with you guys and see if you knew when I would receive the Lotus?! 🤷 I know that shipping can be unpredictable, nowadays. I just figured if I paid that extra for expedited shipping, it would have been here, by now! Ya know what? I betcha it’s stuck in Customs. Uggh, definitely wouldn’t be the first time! Either way, let me know if you all get any new info from the shipping company. I’m gonna call Customs and track down where my car is.. thanks

I've only been in Gran Turismo, but Bathurst seems very much like the Nurburgring. The turns lull you into a rhythm and when you're not absolutely focused every corner can chuck you into the Armco or, if you're lucky, a sand trap. GT has that jump on Conrod straight; the sand trap ate me a lot. You're wise to back out of it in Edit: There are a lot more trees on the mountain in the game that give perspective for the driver.
