Nice video's.

I'd tell him to watch his inputs, there are very harsh and upset the chassis. Also, the sideways crap is killing his exit speed. It's sad when a VW Golf from like 1987 can pull him out of the corner.

He's pushing hard on his shifter with his knee too, tell him to watch out for that.

Sorry, I love to drive and look for things like this.

Hello,

Thats me in the vids. Youre right the sideways crap is killing my exit speed, however I went to goon, and goon I did, and I enjoy it greatly :) Im in a sprint next month, so should be interesting how quickly I can drive smoothly, or very very embarrasing :)

The MK1 Golf GTI Im following has full slicks on it, stripped out with a rollcage, which means it weighs pretty much as little as my Elise, a Golf MK2 GTI engine in it with 160bhp. Also has uprated suspension and anti roll bars. He is 2 up though :(

And Bobbeh, shut it :D I dont care about karting ;)

Glad you like it :)

Funny you both said about the shifter, use it to hold myself in. It isnt actually attached directly to the gearbox in the Elise, I believe 2 wires connect it to the gearbox. So hopefully it isnt so bad. Moves a lot more than I thought was possible:)

Sorry, no more video on compooter, luckily no video exists of karting;)
