    Also had a 3rd person ask about selling it too.

    yeah, nah dude. Not a chance.

      Started the teardown on ours finally. Found one interesting thing so far- a big fuck off weight on the shift linkage which I assume is to provide shifter feel (black powdercoated iron slab). Didn't get a chance to try it on and off yet as we were a bit short on time but I found it interesting

        lots of transverse Toyota manual boxes have a weighted linkage like that

          There you go! I don’t spend a lot of time on FWD cars

            I'm interested to see what Lotus do with the box the GR uses in the Evora in terms of linkages, but I'd guess it's similar

            Edit: same setup in the lotus

                Unikely, I think Lotus (Geely) have indicated it’s electric only going forwards.

                I agree though, it would be a great motor for a flyweight Lotus.

                  most fwd boxes use a weighted linkage like that, it’s pretty standard

                    The 2022 range of Lotus will still be IC engined but no announcement on sourcing. Everyone just assumes Geely/Volvo but the recent deal with Renault could hint at something else.

                    However, I agree an engine from the GR Yaris could be a good fit for Lotus and keep weight down. Turbos in rear engined cars are a bit of a nightmare for cooling though.
                    If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

                    Police warn that blow-up dolls are not recognised floatation devices.

                      The weight is a lot bigger in the GR but yes, they are very similar

                        I’m basically supercar blondie but for transverse engines it seems

                              Transverse-Engine-Car Blondie back again (it’s funny because I’m blonde and I look like a man) with a photo of the intake ports. Respectable entry and lots of valve visible
