    Ecolease

    Click image for larger version  Name:	new3.jpg Views:	784 Size:	611.5 KB ID:	4384 So fuck it. I am going to try just posting and hanging out over here.

    I thought I would start the thread here and add to it with updates as time goes on.

    I started a rental business in Pigeon Forge, TN, renting out unique cars for the same money that you can rent a run of the mill RZR or Slingshot.

    I made the name EcoLease up

    It started from the fact that Exocets are my main car that I want to rent out, thus Exocet Rental

    However, I do have other cars and will add to my collection over the years so it also means Exotic Rental

    I like it. However it does also sound like an Asian saying "Excellent"

    I started with 3 cars, an Exocet, a 65 Dune Buggy, and a 73 Thing

    I have just added my second Exocet with will be rented out starting this Memorial Day Weekend.

ID:	4424 I'm trying to figure out the image thing here

    I feel I did pretty good getting a custom phone number, none of my competitors have that.

    I just got the Exocet vinyl worked a few days ago. The phone rings non-stop whenever the Exo is out.

    It might be confusing with the pics, but I have 2 Exos, I took the red wheels and moved them to the new one and put some orange wheels on the old one to match the orange vinyl.

    The new blue one will be getting wrapped on June 2nd.

      So an exocet is just the modern version of the manx/sandrail by using a miata? Which generation are they based off of?

        Yes, that is a good comparison.

        These are designed to use either the NA or NB donors.

        Many people build the Exocets with either a LS or LFX powerplant, mine are just the stock Miats engines, which honestly, work great for the area I am in.

              It is a tourist based business (like my whole area)

              I rent by the hour $65-$80/ hr

              I also push a buy 3 get the 4th for free deal which is most of what I rent out.

              So typically the car goes out around 10am and I have someone waiting for it when it comes back at 2 pm

                  Post up you logo! Just want to make sure if you picked the penis Shaped one I’m gonna need like a beer for the royalties.

                  kidding aside good job man. I really hope this takes off for you. If we ever head back to pigeon forge I’m gonna need to rent one to flog around the dragons tail!

                    LSx in that platform would just be stupid. As in wheel spin everywhere to the point of unsafe.

                    However, I swapped a late model escape 2.5 in an NB and in my opinion greatly increased the drivability. Didnt feel the need to wind it out as much.

                    Tube chassis may be different, but I'd keep that in your back pocket when people bounce it off 9k and wrist pins start knocking.

                      Did you end up doing the gopro thing? Mounting one to "sell them the footage" (cover your ass from customers beating the shit out of it/crashing/etc).

                            Good job crispins! I have been rooting for you from the sidelines for quite a while. I rode the dragon on my bike a couple years back, very beautiful part of the country. I hope to stop in sometime and rent one!

                              That is my thoughts on the LSx in them.

                              When I was younger and had more money than skills I thought HP was the solution to everything.

                              I really enjoy the lower HP stuff now, it makes you focus on entry speed and smoothness rather than wromping the go pedal at the end of each turn.

                              As for replacement engines, the Miata ones are pretty stout but should one let go I have 2 sitting here ready to be dropped in in just a few hours as working on these is simple as hell.

                              My newest Exo, and all my future one are Automatic transmission and I blocked off all the lower gears on it so it only has "Drive" so getting it to wind out is pretty hard.

                              So yes, that blue one is automatic.

                              These things get more attention than the bright orange Lamborghini I used to have got.

                              I plan on charging a premium for the Manual Exocet and be pretty selective at who rents it.
