Found this from a mail conversation I had with Exmantaa a few years ago
"What are the key changes under the skin of the 2012 Exige S?
There’s a faster steering rack, dropping the ratio from 18.5:1 to 17.25:1.
The rack isn’t new, the ratio change instead coming from a shorter effective lever ratio. Combined with a wider front track, this has also created more steering lock, making it easier to hold powerslides. Now, this sounds childish, but it’s actually very important, because the old car ran out of steering angle perilously close to the point at which you naturally balanced the car during a slide, namely 32 degrees. This now rises to 35 degrees, reducing the potential of hitting the lockstops and thereby reducing the risk of the car spinning. You can genuinely feel the flexibility this brings when you play around on a racetrack."
