    And you'd know that because?

    I hate people who just look at stats and say "it sucks cause it has no power".........get one on the track and it's going to be one of the quickest cars there!<!-- Signature -->

    there are some real idiots on here. no one really cares if a civic has more power, this thing would smoke a civic, mustang, camaro, etc. around a track. And for having "only" 120 hp., this thing can beat cars that have 2 or 3 times as much hp around a real track. It can outhandle almost any car in the world, period.

    This car is not just about speed. It's fast becaue it is light and really doesn't need any more power. Because of its weight, or lack there of, it handles better than any car out there. In a Road & Track grip test, this car beat a Ferrari 360 in handling and came in second overall.

    It is true that the car is underpowered at high speeds but no car is perfect. I heard that the Elise that they will sell in America will have a 160 hp engine b/c most Americans won't understand what this car is all about.<!-- Signature -->

    yes the elise is all bout the inline #$%#ed up 4's
     
  13. Re: 0-60 is OKAY but? 120 hp and 125 mph OMFG

    i dont know how accurate this is but, on gt3 this was the first car i graced myself enough to buy and i loved it for its purely awesome handling. and i do to an extent think it should be more powerful, it would rule on straights and turns then...
     
  14. Re: 0-60 is OKAY but? 120 hp and 125 mph OMFG

    Yes but is not easy to make it much more powerfull without:
    1. Increasing weight thus decreasing handling
    2. Matching environmental regulations
    3. Increase price
    4. Decrease reliability

    So that's 4 vs. 1. What do YOU choose?<!-- Signature -->

    this car sucks on hell's grave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  16. This car suck on hell's grave!!!!!!!

    the 0-60 is not bad, but the hp and the top speed is horrible!!!!!!!!
    not even a turbo charger could save this car. LOL
     
  17. Re: 0-60 is OKAY but? 120 hp and 125 mph OMFG

    There was another forum for one of the elise's or something and the guy said to take a seat out and some other things and put a turbo on the engine or put a small 6 and get like 200-250hp and redo the gear ratios for a higher speed but only like a 30-40mph diff for the top speed, and i think the same aswell for like a new type lotus.
     
  18. Re: 0-60 is OKAY but? 120 hp and 125 mph OMFG

    i dont think the 0-60 is ok. i have a ford lightning that goes 0-60 in 5 seconds no mods, in a 5000 lb truck. b the way the specs on the 2002 ford lightning are wrong, just a little off.
     
  19. Re: This car suck on hell's grave!!!!!!!

    What the hell people. Why does it always have to be about power??? This car is made for one reason and one reason only. To race on a track. It isn't made to have alot oh power cause it doesn't need it. The whole point of this car was the whole point of the Mini Cooper. To race a small... light weight car on a track. Thats it... So everyone stop dissing it cause it "doesn't have enough power".
     
  20. Re: 0-60 is OKAY but? 120 hp and 125 mph OMFG

    i hate the individual car forums... people are so damn ignorant
     
  21. Re: 0-60 is OKAY but? 120 hp and 125 mph OMFG

    I agree with everyone that loves this car. The engine may be small(please dont hate me), but the power/weight is that or greater then the viper. Think of it that way. The size of the engine does not matter, its the weight and size of the car that makes a car fast.
     
  22. Re: 0-60 is OKAY but? 120 hp and 125 mph OMFG

    f*cking idiots. whoes the idiot that compared this to a civic??? IT WOULD RAPE YOUR CIVIC!!!! id love to see all the corvette and mustang loving idiots see their whussy american pieces of poo get killed by this little sleeper at the track! how demoralizing would that be? V8 300 hp Vs 4 banger 120 hp! HAH! idiots, when will they learn? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
