Attack the track with an unbridled Fury. Leave the nag at home, and become the stud that you always knew you could be.

Agreed. I would guess that the seller has plans for the Lotus chassis, but has no use for the body, but to try to convince a potential buyer that the body has any value without the chassis, he's offering up the idea of a lifted 4X4, negating the need for the original frame.

Or... maybe he's just talking about the 4X4s holding it up?

I missed the MG both in your post, and the spreadsheet. Clearly, my reading skills are on par with my racing.

Quick question: Are the lap totals going to be weighted? Like, can fewer full course laps make up a deficit of south course laps by a factor roughly equivalent to their length difference?

I should propose something similar for all of the Jaguars. Okay, how about all of the British cars?

I guess we're pitting alone.

My current favorite style of bike is the café racer, but if I had to choose a best era, it would focus around the mid ‘90s. Performance is asymptotic, and by the mid ‘90s, most performance-oriented bikes, both on and off road, were within a hair’s breadth of what modern bikes are capable of. Aesthetically, I feel that the styling plateaued around that time as well. Many bikes of that era still look modern, and in some cases (Ducati 916) have yet to be equaled.

My biggest fear is that by approaching the performance asymptote we risk market saturation. As new bikes are bettering their predecessors by smaller and smaller margins, the incentive to “trade up” to a newer model becomes less, and new bikes suddenly have to compete with 2 decades worth of production. We’ve seen it as Harley Davidson has been approaching saturation within its own “Harley or nothing” niche. As we get closer and closer to “everyone that wants a Harley has one” the years long wait list is a distant memory, and prices of used bikes have come way down after decades of being “depreciation-proof.”

It’s odd to me that “Oh, what a feeling!” is always mentioned as the memorable Toyota jingle, since when I think of Toyota jingles, the one that sticks in my head is “I love what you do for me, Toyota!”
