Issue I had when I drove an Exige IPS Brendan, was if you pulled the paddle at 1st change light it hit the limiter before it changed. This was on track and if you left it in auto would be fine. Just a shame you couldn't get the change speed of the 400.Brendan wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 4:15 pmOne of the reasons I'm changing my car is I've got early beginnings of arthritis, and the heavy clutch pedal is giving me a little pain in my left hip and foot.6970K wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 2:04 pm
User name is one of my plates Brendan and my titanium S1 had one that looks similar (G9TOK)
I ordered the 400 without driving one and went auto again which is way better than the auto in the S1. If you are considering the Exige IPS, I have been on one when they came out and the change is slower like the Evora S1 and I didnt feel it suited the Exige (gotta be manual)
The 400 doesn't 'float' over the bumps like the the NA and is bit firmer than the S but still is amazing. I bought it just for the noise even though I had put a 2bular on my S1.
No prizes for guessing what is on order as Lotus No.10 to replace the Evora
I know the Exige is a proper road racer, but my thinking is it's also just a proper 'event' to drive even when driving at a steady pace. The IPS isn't going to be perfect when I'm on it, but it seems like it should be a decent compromise so I'll be more comfortable on a longer run. As a bonus, my wife would like to be able to drive it occasionally, and she just doesn't want to drive a manual anymore.
I'm guessing you're on the list for an Emira then! Looks fantastic, but bad timing for me. They're going a tad more mainstream (in terms of usability) just when I'm looking for something more silly
Yes Emira FE is next and going auto again
