Exige newbie autox setup ????

New to the Exige but not autox. Have been running a C6 Z06 for several years and now looking for a different experience and challenge. So I bought an Exige and I'm looking for suspension setup tips. Any of you Lotus hot shoes have any advice for the new guy? Any help is appreciated. -Jeff

Yes. When I ran the vette I had -2.5 deg camber in the front and -1.0 deg in the rear with the toe in/out adjusted slightly. I'm gonna run A'6s and gonna start with the shocks adjusted in the middle and the front sway bar in the middle and see how it feels and adjust accordingly. I ran 30lbs pressure on the tires all around on the vette with A6's and wondered if that was a good place to start.

I saw some setup posts on here but they were for the Elise and didn't know if those setups would be a good place to start for the Exige.
