I drove the S2111s at Huntington Motorsports CT (these guys are great) last month. IMHO the suspension is very forgiving. After my demo I made a mental note to opt for the Track suspension. If the Fed Elise will be softer then all the more reason to get the performance suspension. As long as it is not $3500. I'd certainly be willing to pay 2k if it came with a wheel/tire upgrade and adjustable coilovers. I plan to drive it at least half the time on the track so it makes sense for me.
