from the GG lotus club website they state "The softer Yokohama tires should improve 0-60 times by 0.2 seconds." If we simply switch the tires from the cars with no sports pack to the tire used for the sports pack cars, will this improvement in acceleration be seen?

Sticker tires should help accelaration, braking, and cornering, but some of the gain mentioned may be due to lower wheel/tire weight. Getting wheel and tire weights down really helps accelaration.

You'll likely make some gain. However consider that the Sport Suspension will be tuned to optimize these tires. So, sticking them on a Base or Touring car may incur some handling "surprises".
