This has been something of a mission to get an Esprit to circle the 'Ring with HP this high.

I remember with fondness the Elise GT1 and Esprit GT1 from GT2 and wish we had 'proper' racing Lotus' in GT4 :(.

She's not perfect as she has a bit of a temper when she's going fast over the undulating bits. But keep a firm grip on the wheel and smooth out your inputs and she wont kill you (unless she has to :D).

You can get her faster with stiffer front springs but she gets more homicidal then too and a lap you finish is faster than one you don't :).

The key to success with this one has definitely been the Downforce and Ballast adjustments. They're what keep you alive when the speeds go North of 150mph (she tops out at about 210mph). I've had to compromise the lower speed (70-120mph-ish) handling a touch for this but it's not hard to adapt.

Let me know what you think chaps - all input welcome {including "Your setup sucks because ..." :lol:}.

EDIT: Please note that this car has the PORT POLISH and ENGINE BALANCE modifications performed but (common practise for me) no Oil Change.
