Do the stools come in brown? I've heard red or black stools can be a sign of a serious problem.

How the hell did the car's geometry got all messed up in the first place? That's widowmaker level dangerous even on normal roads. How did the previous driver survive his own midship deathtrap?

Just an idea, you can engine swap it with the Toyota aurion trd. It has the same engine as the 2020 Lotus exige 410 sport. A 3.5 litre supercharged V6 or get a regular aurion engine and supercharge it.

Hi Guys, i think the most important issue of your lap time is the Yokohama AD08RS. The model before, the AD08R was really good, the RS is just crap. I have lots of guys here in austria and germany which have the same experiences like me. Just change the tires (for example Toyo R1R, R888(R), Yoko AD052/048 and you will have lots of fun with the Exige.
