Edd,

First of all - well done for getting this far! ...and don't be too disappointed if the first IVA fails; that's normal.

Regarding setup; you are fortunate in that you have the latest ssuspension. That is pretty easily adjusted in situ. As far as settings go I would personally have it a bit higher than you have suggested (particularly if you want the front splitter to clear kerbs / humps. Personally I aimed for Lotus Elise geo settings from SELOC site. This has worked OK for me (similar size, weight and drivetrain setup.)

Dampers - I run between between 6 - 12 clicks from soft on front and rear

Tyres - 15 - 17psi is plenty

...also, be careful with the alignment. I found that the chassis was not symmetrical and so quite a lot of setback on the suspension. A decent 4 wheel alignment will compensate for this, 2 wheel alignment won't and will cause you problems.

Hope this helps

Rich

...also, it is worth corner weighting the car. As it is so light then it can also help make a big difference
