What are some lap times of cars like the S2k, Miata, M3, etc. or anything else you've tracked around the Streets of Willow? Interested in some comparative times. Speculation on what the Elise might run?
I can only speak from my experience with POC. I've got some time under my belt, but I'm far from an 'expert' club racer
I run about a 1:22 with my M-coupe on street tires (best times, not average). I think spec miatas are in this range, maybe a little better?
Ran about 1:18 with my 911 RS America on street tires
I think a stock Elise would do about 1:19 to 1:20 in my hands. Maybe nearer to 1:18 with sport set-up. I think you could drop that into the 17s with suspension mods and slicks, but I'd be pretty shocked if anyone could get into the 16s without serious mods and more hp
Top times I'm aware of are in the 1:12 range with turbo'd 914s on slicks

This past weekend the two upper control arms bolts sheared on my right rear corner. It sent me into an immediate high speed snap spin. Looking at the parts, I think one of the bolts had started to back out, setting up a vibration and shear forces.
No serious damage to the car, but on several...
