    I must say I have been very impressed with how easy it is to push the roadster fast for the average driver. With no gears, clutch and traction control the car is VERY predictable and fast at the drag strip. I got the Roadster up to 104 and the car was VERY smooth, like nothing I have ever driven in the past.

    With the manual steering, low center of gravity and wide gripping tires it is easy to speed around curves in a very stable and predictable fashion. Again the Roadster is in a class by itself.

    The car is an absolute joy to drive! :smile:

    Yeah a grandmother can match a pro driver in a straight line. She just has to slam down the pedal!

    Yes, because for ICE vehicles, it takes that special combination of AquaVelva and testosterone in order to skillfully work your way thru the gears.
