Today my Imaginary lotus 49 broke down for the umpteenth time.

Posted Image

And for the moment I really felt like Graham Hill. All alone behind the road standing by the stricken lotus waiting for help to arrive. It was sunny day. Track was surrounded by grass and trees.  Trees were in blossom, and there was beautifull spring odour in the air. Than I called my friend. I said - hi its graham! - who? hill, graham hill, my lotus broke down - again!!!

Dario, maybe the chain is simply to weak for the "imaginary" torque of a Cosworth DFV? :)

But your "49er" should go like hell.
