This is the one:


It should start at the right moment, but if not fast forward to 13:05 in the video. The message by Moog is basically he enjoys driving the Exige on the track, but not on the streets. He gets his thrills from building old clunky cars into monsters, like he did with his super Mini and the Fairlady Z.

@Bean i looked in your build thread. It seems that you are from switzerland. I live 10km away from the swiss border. Maybe we can met in the summer and go for a drive in the swiss alps.

I'm close to Z├╝rich, PM me whenever you want to cruise some alps.

Thanks for the video. I really like my exige. But he is right the exige makes the most fun on track. But you only realise that if you actually go to a trackday. The good thing is the exige is almost trackready straight from the factory. I only changed the cooler, brake discs and pads. After that you can drive 20-30min straight on a racetrack. No overheating etc.
The problem with that exige is that i actually cools to much on the road. Because it has 2 oil coolers.

Very crude but effective measure is a piece of cardboard blocking some or all the airflow to a cooler. I used to do that in winter when I still had my 200SX

I live in germany near the black forest.
So lots of nice winding roads.

Right know i'm driving a BMW E36 and a Lotus Exige S2.

A friend of mine bought 2 AE86 a few weeks ago. I joked that i would buy one. After a restless night of thinking and watching Best Motoring i contacted my friend and bought the AE86 coupe.

Unfortunetaly the body need a full restauration. On the good side it has a LSD, tuned cams (idle it pretty rough) and an oil cooler.

My goal is to build a nice weekend car. The problem with the lotus is that it is very capable but to get the most of of it you need a racetrack. And to a certain limit it is pretty easy to drive.
I want a bigger thrill at moderate speed if that make sense.

Welcome to the Corolla virus Steffen! Dodgy

Drifting - best fun you can have in your car with your pants on!

thanks, it is defintely a virus/rabbit hole. There are so many variant of the 4AGE even with it's short life cycle. And also lots of content on youtube which is great.
