S1 lightweight track toy

Following the lotus ethos of ‘simplify and add lightness’ this build was very much one after my own heart. With a focus on weight reduction and maximum bang for buck, this car more then held its own.


Pure engine porn here…using a standard crank and rods, albeit balanced along with the rest of the rotating assembly, with forged pistons, beehive valve springs and custom cams this engine produced fantastic power and torque.

Attention to detail and utilising all of the lessons learnt from previous builds helped to make this the cleanest and tidiest yet.

Thats what an engine bay should look like.

268hp from 2044cc’s isn’t too shabby
