On the road for me it was setup a bit too firm, but of course the beauty of being adjustable means you could fix that. The pay off was the most direct and delicious steering.

I can see why @The Pits loves it - it is the most "Exige-like" of the Evoras, without sacrificing too much of what makes the Evora great

That's why suspension is such a subjective subject, it really is a case of trying it for yourself.

Thanks Scotty.  He makes a powerful case.  Owners of this car will be laughing in ten years so it really doesn't matter what gets prognosticated in the short term.  I flip back and forth regarding my own feelings but part of that is being in the USA which is a different world again compared to England.  I'd heard they weren't coming here so news they will be was welcomed.  I'd bitterly predicted they would never get here so I hope I'm wrong and I hope they don't neuter the motor as they had to do to get 410s here in reasonable time.  

 

This paragraph struck me as important because Lotus' tuning in this respect is excellent.  I never feel the TC intrude even when I know it has to be working and of course mine has just the standard Evora TC.  

 The Evora has three drive modes: tour, sport, and race. Each acts as you’d expect, using the brakes to cut power in varying degrees when slip is detected from the rear end. However, holding down the race-mode button for a couple seconds turns off ESP and gets you into the Evora’s six-way adjustable traction control. Now, instead of using the brakes, it will cut spark to allow one, three, six, nine, or 12 percent of slip from the rear tires. The sixth mode turns everything off.

This is professional-grade race-car stuff. It’s magic. Every serious track car deserves a system like this. Unlike ordinary traction-control systems, which can be abrupt and jarring when they decide to intervene, this works seamlessly in the background to make you faster.

 

So there's some money right there.

Wow congrats, major news! A truly special car. We look forward to welcoming you into the TLF GT430 Club! :thumbup:

I had the good fortune to enjoy a quick drive today. It's a real privilege to have access to one of these. I seriously haven't driven anything that turns-in quite like it.

Can't get enough of it. I've had to increase my mileage allowance with the insurance company already!

Any clues about your spec or will you keep us dangling?

Fire away with any questions you might have on here or by pm if you prefer.

:cheers:

Jonny, firstly i’ll Get the excuses out of the way you may recall I asked you to do a photo shot green GT430 and my original plan changed for Kawasaki green however Sue was not happy for such a stand out car colour and large rear wing.

the compromise being a yellow GT430 Sport

Just spent 3 hours in mine today. You're in for a serious treat!
