Carbon fibre hardtop (minus 3kg) – £3,000

£1,000 per kilo!!!!!

Given that 3 kilos out of 900 odd isn't going to be noticeable that's some dedication. Cheaper options could include:

Going on a diet

Having a poo before going on track (okay, unlikely to save 3 kilos unless you have real problems)

Having a haircut (every little helps)

Spend £1000 on a fancy carbon helmet.

Kawasaki and Toxic are both very nice, but Motorsport Green will be best.

(I'll prove it with a picture when it finally arrives).

The Red 260 Cup in the Lotus Press photo,s last week, looks amazing, not sure what Red it is, sure there are lots off folks on here to answer that question, never seen a Elise cup in that colour, if I was speccing my cup again, I think that would be my choice. I know people are going to say the 260 was gold in the press photos, but I have seen pics of the car in the red which looks the same Red as the press Evora 430.

It's due to roll off the production line during week commencing 27th November. Silverstone will need to do some work to it - fitting harnesses, painting calipers, gtech paint treatment and ppf, adding stripes, so hopefully ready for me to collect first week of December.

In the past I've always bought cars from stock, so this is the first that I've actually sat down and worked out the spec for myself. I'm genuinely excited :)

Not long now Neal.

Don't forget if you used Facebook to join up to the Elise Cup Owners Group on there. There are quite a few active members including myself where we discuss all sorts of Cup related topics. B-)

I think most are on here anyway Bibs so it goes both ways.

Strangely there are a few that don't use forums and only facebook so I have been pointing them in this direction. :)
