I have been in many Lotus on track. Elises can indeed be made much better than stock. But, I have been in more poorly "enhanced" Elige's than well upgraded ones.
Interesting how original poster goes straight to hardware upgrades, but has made no mention of alignment 'enhancements". This is one of the biggest areas one can improve upon (removing the setup designed to protect the common idiot) without changing a single piece of hardware. Hint-->my recommendation, start here. One can improve both road and track abilities at the same time, depending on your driving style. The magic of these cars is compliance, take it all away and its just another oversprung, twitchy sports car.

Never said I was. But I DO believe that innovation and creative thought (from anyone!) have value, and should not be discouraged.

Then again Lotus haven't changed the suspension on any of their Evora's since launch have they? S1 NA same as GT430?
What Nitrons did you have?

I will also replace its rear toe links,front rods and bushings for upgrades.

My mechanic once joked with me saying, “If Colin Chapman saw how you drove this car he’d be rolling over in his grave. This car is meant to be driven and driven hard just like Chapman would have wanted”. For me at least I wouldn’t think suspension upgrades would be worth it. That’s not to say, however, everyone should think the same way.

I’m my opinion it’s an individual choice and I’m anxious to see how it turned out for the OP and if it made a noticeable difference.
