Base suspension with A048's

I hesitate to post this because there is so much misinformation about the sport package but it may be useful for someone.

I just removed my stock standard shocks last week after about 200 track miles on A048's. It was noticable that I was on the bump stops fairly often. This is probably why Lotus does not recommend using R-comps with the base suspension. Next step for me is Penske Triples

That is essentially what was speculated, thanks for confirming. I believe that Randy is even on the bumpstops occassionally with his sports suspension using Hoosiers, so it's possible to see how tightly tuned each shock is for its tire.

I had a couple of bump stops at my last autoX with AO48s, non-LSS dampers but LSS springs. I think I'll need stiffer dampers before I go to Hoosiers...

Anyone know off hand how big the bump stops are. Maybe they could be trimmed down. The stock class Solo2 rules specifically say that bump stops may be shortened so shouldnt be an issue there.
I don't know how much travel the stock shocks have so shortening the bump stops a lot may cause damage to them.
