I think the right answer is in the gearing too. I have a turbo charged Elise that gets me to 140-145 very quickly.. the rev's at that point are pretty close to where the rev-limiter will probably kick in..

DealMan Likely due to less drag

phile Did anyone else notice that if you look at the performance specs on lotuscars.com, that the Elise SC is faster from 0-100 than the Exige S by .3 seconds?

I have to go over and double check both sets, since i just did the dyno sheet import, but it looks close.
Thanks!! This is more than I was expecting! It really must make a huge change! WOW!!!

It just make me want one more and more!

True indeed. But my hope would be too use the coupon AND get a deal below MSRP. That's why i'm intereseted in time limit of the coupon.

And I dunno about you, but I like shifting



Gearing and weight can make as much an impact as HP.
Everyone on this forum seems to agree with this philosophy but I dont understand it. Do they have amAZING hp/weight ratios??? yes, thats one of the things that makes them great. But whats wrong with them being better??? What wrong with being able to keep up with or even beat a C6 Z06???
10-17-2007 08:10 PM
charliex S1's are just awesome, and the S1 exige even more so, thats all there is too it
10-17-2007 08:02 PM
shay2nak I was reading about S1 elise & exige...Says the exige has the SAME Cd as elise. How the hell did they do that with S1, but not with S2?

JonOrangeElise I don't know jack-diddly about physics, but I do know that while I might walk away from Corvettes and M3s in the corners, they catch back up on the straights. And if a horsepower car is on my tail out of a corner, and then we're side by side in a drag race to the next corner, he suddenly starts pulling away at about 80-85mph. So, yeah, there is a reason why the platform should have more power. (I don't autocross; only track.)

charliex Standard Elise S2

Using 1975lbs with a DC of 0.36 ( I don't know if this is right, i have 0.434 for the exige )
Top speed 145 (137 with 0.434 ) 30-60 3.45s, 30-90 9.15s, 30-120 21.05s

I have to add in the dyno torque figures for the katana, so i'll post the results in a bit.

charliex

Can you please do the numbers on a stock 06 elise and a sector111 SC please.
what are the acceleration and top speed numbers to be expected?

thanks!!
10-17-2007 10:52 AM
charliex yeah switching from 20ft² to 18ft² made a big difference, i'm adding in more dyno points now which should make it even more accurate, currently i'm using 2000-8500 rpm in 500 RPM increments which is a bit rough, and the lotus 2057lbs weight claim.


no dead weight for lotus people!

Exige S
0.434 Drag Coefficient Top speed 147 30-60 2.95s , 30-90 7.85s , 30-120 18.45s
0.300 Drag Coefficient Top speed 167 30-60 2.9s, 30-90 7.55s , 30-120 16.1s
1500lbs with 0.434 Drag Coefficient Top speed 147 30-60 2.2s , 30-90 6.05s , 30-120 14.45s
2500lbs with 0.434 Drag Coefficient Top speed 147 30-60 3.45s , 30-90 9.3s , 30-120 21.65s
So not taking the wife along means that 0.1 sec faster from 30-60, 0.3 sec faster from 30-90 and 0.7 sec from 30 -120 then?
