I was just wondering what everyone’s experience has been with mixing in interstate traffic. When I drive my wife’s car I like the ability to pour on a little steam and accelerate briskly from 80 to 100. The question is when you’re driving in the right lane of the interstate and someone is pacing you on the left does the Elise have the power you would like?

80-100 on the cams (shift) happens in a blink.

Randy's right. A quick downshift, and give her gas and she ROCKETS ahead. I can pass people in places I'd never consider in other cars. And 100 MPH in this thing with the top off doesn't feel all that fast. I'm always surprised when I look down and see my speed...
