Does driving the Elise ever get old for you, or is it always a blast to drive? Anyone ever purchase one just to enjoy it a few times only to sell it later?
My V4S feels like a huge 2-stroke in the higher rpms and it has an "optional" exhaust so it smells too (in a good way).Well San a 2 cycle at max rpm still makes me smile! and the smell well yeah brings back so many memories. Tommy
As a 4C owner too, I agree with your statement.I am fortunate to have a daily driver + 09 Elise + 16 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider
Both my daily driver and the 4C are faster than the Elise and feel faster than the Elise (acceleration and straight line). The Elise was out for winter but I still drove the Alfa a few times. I won't lie, a few times it crossed my mind to sell it but I took it out of "winter storage" and drove it on a twisty road and I'm back in love. There's something about rowing your own gears, about flooring it and revving the engine up to 8k RPM and still being able to take corners quickly with momentum. It inspires confidence and you're going plenty quick but not kill yourself quick like some of my friends with faster cars (or hell, even the Alfa). It's certainly a car for special occasions but it certainly is special. Hasn't gotten old for me.
Well those are way out of my league! Here is my old project hahaha Still a blast though. TommyMy V4S feels like a huge 2-stroke in the higher rpms and it has an "optional" exhaust so it smells too (in a good way).
My first motorcycle was a Kawasaki 500cc triple two-stroke (H1 Mach III 500). You could replace the baffles, but they'd find a way of getting away (like a sock from the dryer).
Still breaking in the 2020 S1000RR (at 210 miles as of an hour ago) and a 2021 CBR1000RR-R (only 47 coming to the US) is on the way as well. The R1M is gathering dust for now as the rear tire is down to the belts. They're all in the way of my Exige S, so it is in hibernation mode for now.
