Does anyone know the suspension hard points for the VX/elise, ie X,Y,Z, positions of the pick up points for the chassis, wishbones, dampers, steering etc. Reason being is that I'm trying to map the suspenion profile in a rather nerdy geometry program that we use at work in attempt to understand it a bit better. 

 

This is probably an optimistic request, but I thought it might exist with the amount of people that track VX's, Elises etc.

 

I'm having a search around the Lotus forums but to no luck, thought I would ask here to see if someone has come across it.

Used to have all the coordinate information stored in a software package called Adams

Good old Adams. This software is similar but a bit more bespoke for suspension. Did you just measure the points yourself or get them from somewhere?

No joy yet. I might try and borrow some inspection kit to measure it myself but probably won’t be for a while
