Our first car will be here in a few weeks and there will be more to follow. We are ordering the cars in LHD but with the paddle shifters I'm not sure it really matters what side you sit on.

Shane, this particular car has been ordered as a left hand drive model, however as you mentioned, they usually come as RHD particularily in Europe. With that said, existing cars can be converted. There are many options available to customize these vehicles for each driver and their intended usage.

My car is RHD and my D-type vintage race car was the same. Totally never noticed any difference within half a lap. And, as most all of our tracks are clock-wise, having a little weight bias on the right side of the car is good!

Seriously, in a race car your visual tracking point is so far forward you don't even notice the seat location. As noted, if the car is paddle-shifted, the only thing different (using left hand for shift lever) is eliminated.

Best, Tom

Re: Radical Canada's 1st SR3 RS!

Very nice looking!

Is there anywhere in the world that a Radical can be made street legal?

Google SR3 SL

Totally Road compliant..........in Canada I wonder. Maybe Robert can offer more info on that.

In the UK you can drive just about anything on the road. They have quite a few of even the early models on the road.

Ronnie, we're expecting it in a couple of weeks, no exact date yet.

Brightside, unfortunately none of the current Radical's are street legal in Canada at this time.
