    Buddy of mine had his Exige at the strip yesterday. Ran 14.0s, all stock. He weighs 300 lbs. Anyone else seen one of these run and have some real world numbers?

    Eventually he'll spray it and hopefully dip in to the 12s.

    I don't understand the point of setting a car like that up to run the 1/4. WRX's run faster then that:ugh:

    At 300 lbs your buddy has got to be shoe-horned into that car.

    How did he end up at the strip, did he get lost on his way to the track or something?

    It's not set up for the strip. Its stock. It may be light, but. please remember that it has approx. 170whp.

    I'm 6' and 205. Getting in and out of my Elise with the top on is an exercise in flexibility (and comedy for any bystanders). He must have a bitch of a time shoe horning himself in and out of the Exige.

    A 300lb fat ass defeats the purpose of a Lotus Exige...

    Why the hell would you drag-race a club racer? Aside from not knowing what the fuck you're doing, of course.

    Sure you can drive a sports car even if you're fat, that's not the issue -- the issue is he picked the smallest and lightest USA-street-legal sports car on the planet, one which requires the driver to weigh as little as possible, and then he's not even using it for what it was fucking built for. That's the issue.

    Sounds like you're discriminating against us fat folk. We can do what we want and drive what we want...we're the majority now..you gotta live with it.
