Highly repeatable launch, but it requires faith that the car won't explode. At 7,000 rpm and with a quick clutch engagement, the Elise leaves a shriek of wheel spin. The second gear synchro wasn't happy to be shifted at redline, so I had to do so at 8,000.
Erratic distances due to the Elise's extreme sensitivity to surface condition. Bumps, grit or smooth pavement makes a noticeable difference in behavior and distance. Quite a lot of noise from the ABS but no pulsing.
Massive lateral tug and high steering effort make a very physical driving experience. Excellent balance, but not easy to balance on-throttle. Fairly easily upset by midtransition bumps. Still, very capable in transitions. But be careful; there's an edge.
