First off this question is about all the different spring rates the different vendors are offering for the Lotus Elige "Street" package. Some call it "Fast Road" or "Soft" setup. What I'm so amazed with is how different these set-ups are for essentially the same package. :shrug: Why the difference?
I'm trying to compare apples to apples and I'm looking for a set-up to work mostly on the street.
If you look at the three different vendor websites you can see what I'm talking about. In a nutshell the spring rate differences are:
Nitron's website = 400 lbs./front - 475 lbs./rear
Elise Parts = 325 lbs./front - 400 lbs./rear
Sector111 = 450 lbs./front - 600 lbs./rear
Across those three vendors, that's a 28% variance for the front and 21% variance for the rear.
Can anybody answer:
1. Why the difference for the same package?
2. Does anybody know the stock spring rates of the standard cars from the factory?
Any other insight or opinions?
