Lets see........ two parts and six wheels. Sounds like an R version would be a 26........

Is this the first Lotus with six wheels? Is it also the first with beam axles all round?

Those of a numerate disposition will see it has 8 wheels and 4 on the trailer. Single wheels looked mean. The damping and suspension is by compression plank and the steering is very direct. Lateral location for the driver is very poor but the tyres look unlikely to generate much lateral g. It`s no-wheel drive and lacking in power.

I have the power unit to hand (sleepover) but the two are yet to be united. Another month (and a day) and we`ll see how she handles. I was out perambulating today hoping to fall into conversation with some yummy mummies but only met grannies. I had the hood up `cos it was chilly.
