Good point. A 0-60 of no more than 5.0 sec and a quarter in the neighborhood of 13.5 sec along with some usable power in the lower rpm range (very important) would put a very large smile on my face.... for a few months anyway - at which point, I'm sure I'll start bitching and moaning about not going fast enough.LarryB said:but then again how fast is fast enough?
You have to remember what they are comparing the Elise to.... a Ferarri Modena. Also, the Elsie used in the test was the 120hp version. Looking at it that way, I think the Elise did exceptionally well in those tests! I'm *assuming* that whatever motor they choose will be in the 180+ hp range. If thats true AND they choose a lightweight all-alluminum motor, we will have what we want.BrianK said:
