This setup is my humble start towards a possible 200 A-spec point victory in the ultimate round of the Pan-Euro Championship, the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Notice the unusual inverted rear shocks, an idea I picked up on from Wells666 in his recent setup of a full blown Esprit Sport 350.

Update 12/10/07
Thanks to input by Sukerkin, I've dropped the rear bound, raised the ride height to gain more suspension droop and rebalanced the sway bars. But I'm switching my future efforts with the Esprit over to the '98 Esprit SE model because it can get even more suspension droop together with lower ride height than can this '02 model.

Thanks for the kudos, Dotini.

I noted this setup as I was logging in to add a few notes here and there to the Esprit work-ups I've been doing.

I had applied the same set-up (but no Roll Cage) as my latest SE tune to the '02 Esprit (with Ride Height at 109mm coincidentally) and found her both easier to drive and just as fast as the SE when at 387HP and 171KG Ballast.

I'll post that up officially tomorrow along with an Esprit 350 test along the same lines.
