+1 Mine hit the wall at around 125-130MPH.

2-3 seconds can easily be cut on the straight only.

Agreed. Power-to-weight isn't everything, although it is important.
No, it's not EVERYTHING, but it is one of the key pillars that defines Lotus. Superior performance through light weight.

The more we get away from this, the more we become like other high-performance 'driver's cars'.

If we are tossing power-to-weight, we might as well buy a Porsche or Corvette. I'm not saying they're bad cars - I'm just saying let's maintain the features that separate us from the pack.

Power to weight of a corvette or of most porsches is better than any of the s2 cars.
