^ To that end, one of my favorite things to do is humiliate Lotus owners. I routinely beat Elise / Exige cars. Evoras are also usually not a problem. I have much more difficulty with the Evora S model, if driven by a competent driver on good rubber. People really have no idea how good this car truly is.

My goal for this weekend is to get my 8 ready for track duty again. As good as my Miata is, it just isn't the same as the 8. The 8 is in a higher league.

Decided to S2 swap the front end instead. All the mounting brackets should be here in the next few days. Ordered the Spirit R lights.

All bumper brackets and Spirit R headlights are in. I'll take them to the body shop this weekend. It'll probably be a couple months before everything is done, but it's moving along.

Yea I decided to just swap the front to an S2 instead of modifying the bumper. I dropped it all off with the body shop last Saturday. They have a lot of work to do on the car, so I'm not sure when it'll be done.

Body shop guy lost 2 of his helpers, so he's behind. He'll work on finishing it up next month...

I love their other body kits and bumpers, that being said I think this kit is ugly. Love the thought though!
