Long over due posting. Hopefully this will inspire some other of our completed builders to start a new topic on what they are doing to enjoy there completed build.

Fully licensed back in the fall of 2017 and doing what it was built for......AutoX. Clean as whistle, no scratches, and the rear fenders hadn't been punished by the cones.

Stay tuned for what I've been up to, and if you have a completed build please start a new thread and tell us how you've been enjoying your Locost.

Great work, and glad to see it out in it's natural environment.

Looking forward to the follow-up too.

So what has the car been up to......AutoX, Cars-n-Coffee, and various car show events.

AutoX's have been been a little frustrating up until I got some new tires. The old Bridgeston RE71's had pretty much aged out since I bought them before the car was finished. Yokohama A052 are a good fit for our cars but I'm still giving up a ton of time without the favorite E-Mod or D-Mod tire of choice (Hoosier). The other big struggle is getting the suspension to cooperate. I'm on my second set of springs, which got my ride height where I wanted, but I know I haven't found the optimum alignment and/or settings to maximize my times. I'd also like to experiment with adding a front sway bar since I feel like have to much roll. Just look at this......

Do you have any videos of the car in action? It looks great, by the way.

Cheers,
