The only downer I see with a Radical is that they are SOOOO fast on a track that a DE is no longer all that fun with the traffic. An SR3 is good for a mid 1:40 at TWS, which is blistering compared to your average fast car - mid 1:50s.
Are you sure the 10K motor "refreshening" is for the SR3 and not the SR8?? The 2.8L V8 is an expensive engine, but the 4cyl. should not be that bad.
Anyway, will try one in June and see. (at least the driving experience)
