  1. Try Gary Straight at Straight Roads. I've used him twice, last time was 2017.
  2. Gert, do you have any other "lesser known" road recommendations in the Nearby mountains? I'm in Huntington Beach now but I grew up driving the roads in the San Gabriel Mountains. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Glendora Mountain and Glendora Ridge are 2 of my favorite roads. GMR. Is tighter with more traffic, while GRR has easier flowing turns. I had my Elise up there a few weeks ago and can't wait to go back. I'll be back once in fix my own piston ring issues... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Beautiful pictures. Is this Glendora Ridge Road? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I'll post the text of ad for reference. I'm having trouble posting pictures here, so follow the link to see those. For sale is a 2007 Locost 7 powered by a Yamaha R1 Motorcycle engine. $14,000 You can reference my post at the end of the For Sale ad here: http://locostusa.com/forums/viewtopi...12308&start=15 The car is based on a CMC frame that has been extensively modified for both safety and performance. The chassis has the dimensions of the original “book” Locost design. Below is a list of features on the car: -2003 R1 Engine (160HP Fuel Injection) -6-speed Sequenti
  6. May I add my car for sale? Locost 7, Yamaha R1 powered http://locostusa.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=12308
  7. I can personally attest to the speed and handling capabilities of this particular Seven. I'm usually unable to keep up with it at Buttonwillow, and that is with the older engine. A fresh engine most certainly increases the capability. For reference, my Seven is a Locost with 2003 Yamaha R1 motorcycle engine and transmission, 1120 lbs. wet weight. Good luck with the sale. I'll miss the comraderie at the track.
  8. Great footage. I feel deprived, my last track day was in August!
  9. I believe I have the same switch as xcarguy (pressure switch from summitracing), and I am currently without brake lights. Running lights work fine, only difference with mine is they are oval LED brake/turn/parking light units. Does anyone know if the switch just completes the circuit between the 2 wires? So to test if the switch is bad, just short the 2 wires together and the brake lights should activate, correct?
  10. Landshark, I'm also in Orange County if you ever want to get together for a drive. This summer should see my Locost get road legal!
  11. I'm down in north Orange County, right near the beach. I'm working to get my car street legal, but it should be a few months given my time constraints at the moment.
  12. I can highly recommend Straight Roads (Gary Straight). He transported my Locost 7 from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. He came highly recommended bhy multiple Seven owners and was almost my cheapest quote. I did have to wait for a couple more cars to sign on (1 week extra in total) but it was well worth the wait. It was comforting to see that my car was the lowest valued in the transporter.
  13. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XrhlBWE...8As%26sns%3Dfb A friend sent me an interesting video on some Japanese guys who drive their ex-Le Mans race cars on the street. It stands on its own merits (who doesn't want to watch Jaguar XJ220LMs and 962Cs running on the highway?) but I caught a glimpse of the owner's 7 (not sure what vintage, appears early due to bodywork) as he saddled up to take his XJ220LM for a spin. The 4-rotor Mazda 767B is pretty cool too. Aaron
