Comments & Plans I like the pug, it's as quick as a Honda Integra Type R on the straights, Lotus Elise pulls away a bit from a standing start, and then slowly gets dragged in. Spins the wheels well into 3rd in the wet on low boost (5psi). Feels very light on the brakes (bad), back is very, erm, 'mobile'.
