Mischief 7 JoyRide
Mischief 8 (Coming Soon)
2006 Lotus Elise:
Custom front and rear clams
single tip arqray exhaust
carbon fiber seats w/ 5 point harness
removable steering wheel
blacked out all of the lights
limo tint and of course a sick ass JBL audio system(for those boring waits at the starting line!).
There were so many mods to this car I can't even remember what they were.
Limo tinted windows including the windshield
awesome JBL audio system
powdercoated all the chrome and spray painted the wheels matte black on the side of the road in Iowa with a can of spray paint we picked up at a truck stop.
This car arrived perfect from the factory.
The only mod to date is tinting the windows.

"I have always had sports cars since my early 20s. I was invited to a track day with a Lotus club in California. I never knew that you could do that until that day.
I took a couple laps with an instructor who said I was a natural. I was hooked. I trained with him for a while and then attended Skip Barber's 3 day Racing School and the Advanced Racing School. I competed in several Mexican On Road Rally competitions, winning my division each time and finishing top 10 out of 100+ starters and 86 finishers.
I also competed in NASA's West Coast Endurance Series. I first found out about Mischief from their first Rally DVD. I loved what they were doing. It was during Player's Run that I met one of the crew and through him, met everyone else. It's been an amazing adventure and one I am thankful for every time we go out and have more fun than the last time."
There are too many great moments to list but one of my favorites was when Dustin was driving my Lotus on the way to NOPI. Several cars had been pulled over and we were talking about how we were lucky that we hadn't been. One cop that was giving someone a ticket, saw the lotus and gave a thumbs up kind of gesture. We waved and Dustin accelerated past him. Due to the Arqray single tip exhaust, the car was obnoxiously loud. The cop took this as a "f#&k you" in response to his positive gesture and let the guy he was dealing with go to chase us down. We got pulled over. I tried explaining to the cop that Dustin wasn't used to driving the car and was in no way trying to be disrespectful. We were in Virginia after all and the last thing we wanted was a ticket here! I can't remember if Dustin got off without a ticket or not but we definitely told that story over again and again.
I would have to say that the people that I have met through Mischief have been some of the greatest and most genuine people that I have met. They are such skilled and talented drivers that I trust them with my life. Driving in a group with the likes of Dustin, Dada, Daniel, Marks, Andrew and too many others to list, is a privileged that I am lucky to be a part of.
When I moved back to the east coast, I joked about creating a Mischief compound but that "joke" has turned into a reality where I hope to be able to have the entire crew out for years to come.
I hope that's not too cheesy but you guys are all so much fun and I know that if I was broken down on the side of the road, I could count on someone to come and pick me up. :)
