Eddie1996 Posted April 1, 2021 Share Posted April 1, 2021 Just had a track day at Donington Park on Tuesday, first track day in my 2011 Cayman S. Was very pleased with the car, performed well. My previous car was an Elise which is an out and out track car, so how did the Cayman compare? For me, I enjoyed the extra power and grunt of the Cayman, I found the car really well balanced, brakes were excellent and didn't fade, tyres also held up during whole of the track day. I know half the fun of driving is heel-and-toe with a manual, but personally I really enjoyed the PDK I have, concentrating on line and braking and letting the PDK maximise the engine - brilliant system in my opinion. I did find the turn in to corners was not as good as I might have liked. Although it gives a hard drive on public roads, I guess the base model does not give quite the stiff enough suspension you'd want on a track day. Is that fair? Were a few GT4s and a GT3. I must say compared to their huge wings the wing on the Cayman look like a toy! Hung out with Andrew, a guy with a GT4 with 5k miles on clock, also first time on track, also an ex-Lotus man. He was delighted with his car (naturally!). I know there must be a whole load of information about upgrades to suspension. In my Lotus I had nitron 1-way adjustable. I put a nitron sticker on the side of the car. I was as happy as Larry. But I don't know if it made much difference - the car was stiff already. As for Caymans, does anyone reading this have a suspension upgrade (something simple, cheapish)? I only mean to track my car once or twice a year, I guess, but that seems to me the one thing perhaps worth considering getting. cheers Ed 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
