  1. It's just further proof that there is no such thing as one setup to rule them all. For me in time trial with the soft tyres bolted on the rotation in the hairpins was bang on, However for another driver that likes a looser car on a degraded surface it can turn from a great setup to one that washes out when things get twisty. You really didn't have to remove the entire setup. Just lower the diff settings. That's the only major thing that would cause the car to wash out in the hairpins. So going from a pristine surface to a degraded one you are most likely going to lower the diffs by 2 straight
  2. Nail on the head there @ApexAzimuth. Due to the fact you cant dive back and forth to the service park to adjust the setup once you start a custom championship, all my setups are created in time trial with fresh soft tyres and no stage deg. So unless your driving style is the same as mine and your running in time trial you will have to adjust the setups i share to optimise is for yourself. They are only meant to be referenced as a guide, basically saying to get the best out of the car you need to be some where around here. The good thing is about the setups is you know immediately that if your
  3. hi, yes I have planned in the DLC locations for the car I done prior to them. Will be picking them up after Germany drops starting with the 2000cc and R5 cars. Yeah, my setups are obviously setup for my driving style using a wheel. So using a pad and having a different driving style will most likely incur some modification but im glad they have still help even if it is just a starting platform.
  4. Thanks dude, so glad I could help you out. If I ever find myself in Vietnam I'll take you up on that offer 😉
  5. thanks dude, your comment is appreciated. how did I get so good at setups you ask? well, I started playing racing games back in 97 with Gran turismo, picked up Colin mcrae rally in 98 on release, Didn't really start trying to understand the tuning aspect until Forza 2 in 07 and pretty much learnt all I know on the forza franchise and just adapted it to project cars, F1 and Dirt and it seems to be paying off. So literally just years of experience and taking the time to understand what makes the car do what.
  6. will be starting group b cars end of May. sorry its not sooner but I'm massively strapped for time at the moment.
  7. will be starting the H3 cars in a couple of weeks. I've also had a bash with the escort, was great on asphalt. Then I took it off road and the thing became an absolute animal. So I've got to spend some time understanding what effect what with the RWD cars as I very rarely use them.
  8. I do use toe angles as and when the car requires it. namely the R5 cars, they did need some toe angles to keep the cars in line. Also in regards to toe the more you use the more you lower the top speed and effect turn response so I always use it as a last resort if I'm struggling to balance the car with springs, roll bars and dampers. After all this is the sim world and things aren't always what they seem.
  9. Sorry, when I say "locking the diffs" I mean a high % not fully locking them. You'll struggle to get around the corners if you do. Also because if the slider bar values you can never 100% lock the diffs. I think for most cars its 30-50% maximum lock. For my driving style I prefer the to keep the car as straight as possible because if your going sideways and/or counter steering your not going forward. The high diff setting (mainly the preload) just help keep the straight really. I've linked in some videos, In the first video I'm running high lock settings on the diff and the second video will s
  10. Soft bump controls how firm the setup is over soft gradual bumps. Fast bump controls how firm the setup is on sharp bumps or landing from jumps. So a firm Fast bump will stop the suspension from compressing to much and hitting the bump stops or bottoming out when I gets extremely bumpy. So if a sharp bump is larger than the cars ride height you'll need a firm fast bump to stop the car bottoming out and causing unnecessary damage. As we all know any car that's hitting the bump stops or hitting the deck becomes skittish and difficult to control. I obviously ran soft fast bumps whilst I was figur
  11. I'm finding locking the diffs up helps coupled with less camber. You'll need maximum traction when your on the ice patches/snow
  12. Will get to the group A cars in 2-3 weeks with any luck. My apologises that I can't get them done any quicker than that as I have work commitments that take priority.
  13. Thank you Peltz, Extremely glad I could help you. Setups will continue until all cars are complete.
