    Red and white BCM wire

    I'm almost certain my 09 had the same wire. May be a 2.2 thing. I kept it in and made it work with it. didn't affect anything. If there's one thing I wish I could have done, it would be installing the harness, then moulding and taping.

    Data Wires with No ABS???

    My 09 base model had a slightly different data wire routing than the video. May help: https://dfkitcar.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-whole-cars-electrical-system-was-dead-now-alive.1366/#post-24173

    Fuel pump connector

    That's the same wire colors as the base model pump. Also, that connector was a bit tough to find.

    Jareth’s [Extended\Full-Cage\Easy-Entry] - [2010 LS Donor] - [Frame #290]

    If you got the button panel, you can save the connector from the bottom of the passenger seat to add to the panel.

    400# springs on the front, #300 springs on the back

    I made this same mistake.

    Audio Options

    I bought this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00T3QBL3M?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title Going to see how crappy it is. Price was right. Mounting location may be challenging. I got new clamps but have lost interest because of several factors. I will update this thread when it is installed...

    Wisconsin Registration

    A quick update on my unique situation. Long story short, my car is a gocart. MT cannot assign a title because they can see that it has been titled in WI; even though the title has been revoked. I have essentially two options. 1. DF sends me a new VIN and MCO. I reached out to them, and...

    How did you hear or learn about the Goblin

    I read about the Caterham Seven Sprint in Motor Trend or something. That inspired me to build a kit car. Stumbled across the Goblin in the process and ordered my kit 18 months later.

    Full cage or open cage

    This is true! I went open, but would do track next time. Feels a bit more substantial. Nathan's setup is pretty sweet, which is swaying my opinion.

    LS 2.2 NA Tuning

    Following. I haven't started dumping in changes, but took a solid look at the tables. I started editing one pulling a bit of fuel and adding a couple degrees of timing. Need to wait for spring here.

    Wisconsin Registration

    Thanks for the update, I've neglected it. For anyone first looking at WI registration, I had my title pulled after 3 months of being legal. The inspector said round tube frame chassis are not allowed. Square tubing forward of the firewall may work, but I don't have the ambition to try. Maybe...

    Not for sale anymore.

    It didn't replicate a Lotus Seven close enough. My goblin, and all others I know of in WI are titled as replica Lotus Sevens. The statute is super broad, so the inspectors get to determine what constitutes an appropriate replica. A Caterham Seven is definitely a replica, but to inspector Duane...

    Not for sale anymore.

    Not sold yet. I actually have an autocross with it in four weeks, so can't be sold until after. To answer your question, it depends on the state. If the state needs everything including donor title, I don't have that. I doubt I'll get it back from Wisconsin DMV. I plan to go Montana route with...

    In hindsight, it probably did draw in the state patrol faster than anticipated....

    Throttle Sensitivity

    Is there a way to digitally delay the throttle or ignore sudden inputs? The Jeep Wrangler and I'm sure many other cars have this logic. The Jeeps was so pronounced, it was a bit of a learning curve.

    Essentially, there is no inspection prior to title and registration, so they gotta catch them later. The state's loophole buys you time, but doesn't guarantee legality. The Goblin doesn't replicate a Lotus Seven accurately enough, according to the state.

    This morning, I found out there's no way to make a Goblin legal in WI. I'm still debating going Montana route, but I'd be near the end of Goblin season and I'm feeling like moving on. I'm sure Wisconsin would find a way to get it off the road no matter what. Donor was an 09 Pontiac G5 with the...

    *TITLE REVOKED* Dsteinhorst's WI city build 09 base model #182

    Yes, my MCO states lotus replica. At this time, no one but that single officer has weighed in on my car. I will post the letter when I get it. Until then, the I still consider everyone else with a Goblin in WI legal. This was a specific sting operation on me, not on a larger group.

    *TITLE REVOKED* Dsteinhorst's WI city build 09 base model #182

    An important update for any Wisconsin folks, and for anyone else interested. I was pulled over by a state trooper in a very obviously targeted stop this Tuesday. He was short and succinct. He is having my title pulled. He said there's no way to title 'sand rails' in WI. I attempted to make the...

    Need a bit of help convincing wife to build

    I had a budget of 13k initially for an N/A build. I ended around 16k including all options, parts, and taxes. Dont plan for less than $15k. It's possible, but won't happen. As far as safety goes...
