As some of you know I've upgraded my daily driver, unfortunately my Elise now feels _very_ slow
On paper the Elise should be the same 0-60. In reality they are worlds apart, the new car feels as quick up to 70 as my old Exige S (at least when driven with some mechanical sympathy)
Sure the Elise is nicer on the right road, but the ease of overtaking the new car gives me (more so than even the Exige) means you have so much more "right road" to use without being stuck behind the 40 everywhere brigade.
The biggest difference is power delivery. So whilst I had been hankering after an NA Honda conversion, I'm starting to question even that wisdom.
Do I just give up on the Elise?
Start saving my pennies for an Exige roadster?
It's time for some serious soul searching. All of the above are going to start being pretty expensive,
If anyone is willing to take me for a pax in something like the above I'd be more than grateful, as I don't want to make a very costly mistake

For a number of years I organised the MLOC Christmas Run that went from Worcestershire through the Elan Valley to Aberystwyth for lunch on the sea front and back again. Some good turn outs and great memories over the years, including about 15 or so that braved snow and ice on one occasion!
Now, in order to show how easy it is to put a run together I would like one volunteer to organise the same run this year. The route is all sorted, tried and tested many times, directions are written and sat nav files created! All I need is for one lovely member to step up and put it all together for another memorable MLOC Christmas Run sometime around Christmas and New Year.
It doesn't matter if you've never organised a run before - I will help with as much as I can (up to the point of doing the whole thing myself! ).
If this is out of your area, but you'd still be interested in organising a run, we have a number of maps used over the years that we can no doubt find something you can run with.
Please please please consider this, it is a great feeling organising these runs and leading a group of like-mind folk along some great roads.
Remember, this club is run by MLOC'ers, for MLOC'ers
