Some enthusiasts contacted us about selling their VF540 kits. One mentioned he was would be moving into a GTR for more traction. Another was selling his VF540 kit and upgrading with a used VF620 kit (from an insurance total loss part out). 2 other VF owners were parting out their builds due to lease end. 2 kits were advertized twice.

During post-track inspection - I was pleased not to see any engine codes stored at all, something that I haven't seen in a long time.

I'd rather not get into the VF vs ESS debate, there are plenty of those threads elsewhere.
In response to the feedback quoted from EAS above, to be fair, their car did not run on our latest 240E software and was never updated since it was flashed about 1 year ago.
To clarify the weight differences: the non-intercooled VF manifold and bracket only weighs 4.2 lbs (four point two) more than the ESS equivalent components.
