I have a couple of questions that I'd like some help from the current owners
before finalizing my option selections:

o Is the hardtop install/deinstall meant to be multi-person task?
o What is the extent of the under-steer bias in standard suspension?
Is it limited to track situations?
o For those of you with experienced with Honda S2000, how does the
performance of the standard suspension compare to that of stock S2000?
o how to order a service manual?

Thanks for the info.

A poor Elise driver will encounter understeer constantly - you have to drive around it. It's safe though :)

Aviate- Welcome, I'll try answering some of your question:

- Hardtop can be done by one person in 15-20min.

- Understeer will happen if you've got too high a entry speed. As a mid-engine car think slow in fast out & it shouldn't be much of a factor.

- Service manuals can be order through the Lotus dealer parts dept. Don't recall the details, to be complete it's several volumes and a few hundred bucks.

The hardtop can easily be installed or removed by one person in less than 15 minuntes (once you know what you're doing).
