^Interesting question. You can see in my signature below all the mods on my Elise. I think my suspension is pretty well sorted for a naturally aspirated car: Nitrons, monoballs, RAC monolites, R888s, aggressive alignment, etc. People have also commented on how my car, with the upgraded motor mounts, stiffened shifter subframe, and new shifter cables, shifts really well. Car also has DS2500 brake pads, so it's a decent street/track hybrid pad, stopping power is good. Stainless lines and Girodiscs too.
Is it the very fastest Elise that can be built? No, of course not, but I do feel like it's very very well sorted for my requirements. No offense or lack of modesty intended. The car could be a better track weapon with aero, more expensive dampers, wider/stickier tires, and depending on who you ask, more power. Considered force induction for a long time after driving a few such cars, but ultimately decided I liked the purity and simplicity of n/a. The beauty of a n/a Elise is that you can string it out on the street all the time w/o getting into trouble.
Just some background on where I'm coming from in my comparo.
