I did a search for pass time speed, so sorry if this is a repost.

On the SpeedTV show Pass Time they showed a 2005 stock Elise (according to the driver) with Kodiak wheels and Neova tires I think. It ran a 13.683 at 98.89 mph 1/4 mile. They ran it against a 2007 Ultima GTR (NOT the N1ssan Skyl1ne) that did a 12.415 at 133.01 mph. The Elise got a much better launch.

Do you have a you tube link? That is the only "pass time" episode I missed. Do you know if they will be re-airing it?

How did you launch the car - what revs etc. 13.1 seems to be a very good time.

Honda powered Elise S1 on road tyres, driver was asleep when the lights went out but still managed a 12.32. Opposition is on slicks and is running enough boost to achieve obital velocity.
