Plus you will find that rear is slightly wider, lending to even more tendency to hit something with the rear wheel.khamai said:
a) you'll likely put in too much steering lock at the first few corners. Watch those right turns near curbs. You'll turn more than you expected and smack the curb and put some serious curb rash on your alloys;
C) The brakes will stop the car rapidly, specially with the Elise's overall low weight. That does not mean you should though. The 2 ton SUV behind you does not stop as quickly.
D) Try not to get carried away and dart too much in traffic. That only works when all the other cars never mess up or do something unexpected. Save the darting around for times alone or track/autocross.
E) Be aware of other vehicle's blind spots. Do not camp out there they can't see you.
Do not stay to the side of a vehicle like this. Specially on the passenger side. They can't see you.
F) Be aware of midengine car dynamics. If you feel the back end get loose, don't panic and jump on the brakes or even jump off the throttle. That will make the back end lighter.
