I must say, I'm rather amazed that the Subaru Impreza T-25 finished ahead of the Elise (and the Gallardo!). After driving my STi and Elise back-to-back, there is no question as to which I prefer to drive on the track and street.
I doubt that they would offer this fix for free to exisiting Elises, but if the solution is simple, the cost of doing so would be minimal.
Personally, it's a good thing that people complain about things like this because it produces a better car for the rest of us. While it is good to be appreciative of the car, constructive criticism is invaluable.
Thanks for the post.
Looks like the CO Exige press hack is waay past it's "sell by" date otherwise i think it would have ranked a little higher. Barely quicker than the elise on the Brabham straight indicates (to me) a lack of corner exit speed and a lack of power to maintain its downforce advantage over the Elise.
The Cat EVO500 must have finally been optimised for circuit work. It had been set up to smash the 0-100-0 record and did poorly in the next circuit thrash following the record run.
