But thanks again for the big help... hope to run with you one day, but for fun.. not race

IF they are cheaper and better otherwise makes not sense to get them.

They are not really performance parts.

Anyone with exotek conversion;The kit I got has one side link marked with #2 and the other blank.The instructions call for a #1 and #2. Is there a difference they both look the same.

Hmm strange- any way they are the same. Just make sure the small screw heads face outwards for easy access

Anyone got pics of the 79' Lotus but with regular F103 rubber tires in the rear? I'm curious to see if it looks too strange as I doubt the stock big rear tires will have adequate traction.
