It' has been a long journey, with a few years left to go....but here were I am as of May 2020. Please feel free to contact me at ( [email protected] ) if you want to talk about a project like this! Update August 2020: I passed New York State DMV inspection on August 27 2020....one step closer to driving my project legally on the road!Update September 2020: I dropped off all my paperwork at the local DMV and am waiting for my plates! Insured with Hagerty and ready to start driving. I took my car to Empire Performance in West Babylon yesterday; https://www.facebook.com/EmpirePerformanceNY/ : great guys! Morris did and awesome job! We did some easy dyno pulls because the engine is so new and I am nervous! I want to get 500-1,000 miles on it before we dial it in for maximum output. For now, we stopped at 5,000 rpm and 360 RWHP (about 414 HP at the crank using the 1:15 factor) and it sounds really happy! We spent about 4 hours on the dyno and I couldn't be happier! A full new video coming soon!Build Your Own Car! You can do it…..even with the NY State DMV hassle! I started this “Lotus Seven” (AKA Locost Seven) project 5 years ago and hope to finish in 2021.
