+1 on the torque and where it is found in the rev band. My 335i is much faster than my Elise was, especially as speeds increase. The Elise would have had an advantage to ~60 had they launched from a stop; but from a roll, the advantage of better weight distribution/transfer is negated. The Elise driver might have done better by keeping it in a lower gear, too; you can hear that he started off-cam.

Although with a start at 37 mph, you pretty much have to start in 2nd, and it will be off the 2nd cam, unless you have the lotus sport ecu or have visited charliex
Didn't catch the starting speed there. It puts the Elise at a distinct disadvantage. Still, it would have been best for the Elise if it had been from a standing start.

I had my first close race so far with this car, 420whp New GTO 50-120 pull i only had about a car on him.

I really need an EFI or to have charlie work some magic for this setup.
