    WTF did they do there?!! Did they only put the lift under the front half of the vehicle then? Therefore the heavier end (being rear-engined) acted as a counterweight and swung it up.

    If that was mine, I'd be absolutely gutted!!

    woah just been parusing the unfortunate fellas website, check out this in his garage



    Porsche 914 with a 911 conversion and how clean/smart is that garage, look at the cupboards. I've only got a shed with a old crappy Ikea cupboard that's broke down the middle.

    It's not like I'm a Lotus expert, but I assume, partly from the thread, that the owners manual clearly explains exactly how they must be lifted, I assume they are heavily weight towards the back, so you should NOT use a conventional four post ramp.
    It is probably not safe, and unbalanced anyway, but taking the front wheels off removes that vital extra bit of weight from the front end, and, well, bang !!!

    Blimey, I'm off to have a nose around then, lol, I gather from his comment about having to make do with a 911 he wasn't exactly short of a couple of quid, lol.

    I can see now - after looking again at the pics and reading more of the thread. I thought it was a drive-on ramp, and couldn't work out how they hell they had managed to do that and for it to end up how it did! I now see it's a four point lift, just four points of contact, and obviously the weight on the rear just flipped it up and backwards!!

    you gotta love this bit:
    "Dammit!!!! And I have the Central Florida Lotus Fun Run on Saturday which I've been organizing. Guess I'll have to drive the 911. "

    my heart bleeds!!! he doesn't seem too p1ssed off. not like us, having to make do with cr@ppy replacement vehicles like ford fiestas!!
