If you look at the photo, you will see that one front tire is missing.

I bet....

The rear lift legs were set at the "teter point" when all 4 wheels were on the car.
The the tech then unbolted a front wheel, and the rest is history


I woud have loved to see the look on his face when the front of the car started drifting upward.

In the full thread on NASIOC he said the front was held up by a tow truck to try to keep it from getting out of control when they put it down, but it swung around anyway and smashed some toolboxes.

But I bet you are right, took the front wheel off and it just tipped over.

Sad.

As a total, "aside," I was impressed at how flat the bottom of the Lotus is, but for the NACT type ducts at the rear. Airflow is obviously very controlled on that car, presumably to create the downforce they are famous for.

The Porsche Carrera GT has similar problems on lifts and whenever it goes up the first thing they do is strap it to the arms themselves
