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

    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.
