Nice work, Dawson! With that attention to detail, you should join us in SM land.

Thanks. How tempting SSM is...

If I can't get my Elise to handle the way I want in SS, I'll likely sell it, pick up a more abused specimen and start down the SSM path. That way I won't feel bad trimming the clams or doing other things that would reduce the resale.

I'm saving my stock clams in storage and bought extra worse condition clams to cut up for SSM.

Resale? No way. Mine is going to be an auto-x car forever.

I said that about the Miata too.

I'm just accepting my fickleness and being proactive about it this time.

Yeah but that was a Miata. Wait until you get a taste of SSM in an Elise. It's nice.

I am not sure you guys are helping .. I am trying to get my DP/DM Elan sorted out for this season and so far all I have done is order some RS3V2s and class numbers/letters for my Elise. I guess I will be running some events in SS this year

6. iRacing and GT6 for offseason. - Didn't happen
I ran the car as it is (tune, muffler, pulley, NT01s, JRZ coilovers) and it was shockingly a completely different car than the last time I ran it and now I think I want to run it full time. I think I'll go back to the stock pulley and play in SSP later this year.

I'm about to pick up an Elise with the DA Ohlins on it already. Can I ask what spring rates you're using?
