Hi
My car is running stock geo which I understand is set up to understeer.
Is there a recommended set up that anyone could share?
My usage is mainly road, but I simply want the handling to be as good as it can be.
Thanks

What model Exige do you have ?
There are different set ups ... the later models have a different geo to earlier ..
I have a 2015 roadster and put 1 degree negative camber on front ( more just made ABS activate earlier) on track and 0.5mm toe out per side which is a little aggressive maybe ...
It’s improved turn in, but you still have to get the weight on the front to avoid understeer on track.
On the road it’s just fine.

It's a 2013 Coupé, Race and Premium Sport, running on Corsa's.

I would get 1 degree negative camber on the front and check the toe setting is somewhere like 0.1mm out per side minimum to start and see how it feels.
Not a lot more you can do with standard suspension apart from change the tyres to 215 section on the front - AD08R seem reasonable alternative to Corsa.
