    Default New Lotus Europa cam cover

    As Lotus unveiled their latest go kart, sorry Europa, using the VX 2.0turbo engine. One of the released pics show their own design on the cam cover. Gone has the legendary ECOTEC cam cover to be replaced by this rather nifty design. Which got me thinking has anybody out there got any access to equipment where we could print are own designs - names onto plastic which could be stuck over the legendary but slightly drab ECOTEC cover.

    I can just see how well the ABYSS or AJA would look printed on the cam covers of their engines.

    Scooby had arranged for some Engine stickers to be made. PM him for details.

    I was thinking of an airbrush design on my engine cover after having it painted, but I'm not sure how durable it will be.

    Another option would be to have a stainless cover made and have a design etched in.

    Neither option cheap though, but would be unique.

    Does anyone else think that Europa is fugging ugly? The rear view is disgusting IMHO.

    Kinda reminds me of the RX8, especially the view from the rear side over the front arches
