To my amateur eyes it looks like its so high that ground effects wont even matter?
I agree..... ride height needs to be checked. Having said that, Lotus does recommend ride heights for the S3 variant that are greater than the S2. Lotus recommended ride height settings for the V6CupR is 126mm front and 136mm rear. Clearly the V6 Exige rides higher than my 2-11 or my previous Exige Cup255...photos below.
The race team kept lowering the rear because the "pro-driver" felt it needed less rake. I don't see any negative rake at all.
In fact, they said they couldn't go any lower in the rear for fear of rubbing the fender liners....
