    Depends, on the 1/4 i would say elise but as for on the track hmmm depending on how technical the track is... a very twisty technical track i would say elise on an oval its gonna be the rx-7 and anything over 1/4 its gonna be the 7 again.

    Thats a tough one. I would say Elise in the turns, '7 on the straits. But the Elise is about 1000 pounds lighter, and that could make up for the 130 hp advantge of the 7 nicely in the area of acceleration. <!-- Signature -->

    for sure but the top speeds are off by about 40mph so??

    and doest the lotus on ly do 60 in like 5.2 seconds? that is much slower than you guys said that the 7 would do?

    I think that the 7 would win on any track with a decent straight but if there are no good straights on the track it all goes to the Lotus

    Elise is truly one of the best handling cars out there, In the Elise forums, you should find a Video of the Elise keeping up with an F40

    RX on the straights and Elise in the corners, but if it were up to me, i'd pick the RX-7

    I would Rather a Rotor than a motor anyday.
    They are the best.Anyway the Lotus Elise is a girl's or a hair dresser's car and if anyone disagrees they are like a Porn store "BackDoor Entrace".

    My rotor could even burn it and it's like 20 year's old. It's extushed is so big that I have to clean it out every spring because birds nest in it. It also as a 13b egine in it with twin turbo's but it lose torque from some reson when I stuck the extushed on. People say it sounds like a ride on lawn mower but there #$%#ing stupid.
