Just wanted to know of other suprises in performance. I had a chance to tacke my car up hwy 74 from Palm Desert to vista point with a Porsche twin turbo owner and really pushed ot for the first time. I kept the revs above 6000 rpm , I'm not sure what gear I was in I was just holding on for dear life. I was pushing 80 to 90 in every corner and accelerating all the time. My pasenger was a tall 250 lb guy and he was very impressed. I've been a lotus owner before but the grip and acceleration this car has will keep you up all night long reliving the experience. This car is deffinatly worth the money. The car never felt loose and upon lift off in at the entrance to one corner the back felt light but never hinted at breaking loose. I need a track day.
