Will the car setup still feature the silly camber settings

Recommended Posts

Im sure you are all aware from the youtube videos and the time trial times etc, that at every track the best car setup on suspension geometry is the top two bars fully to the right and the bottom two fully to the left, every track every time. This is not realistic at all its been this way for 3 years now, as well as other setup problems. Will this be changed in the new game?

exactly this is for time trial.obviously a setup like this will eat your tires in no time in long stint(race) only suitable for a quick lap. what you want them to do exactly?? have you though that these perhaps are realistic and close to real life and  how these settings affect the handling and tire wear.

Yes, unfortunately this laughable one will be the same at f1 2019. Unfortunately, Codemasters is getting the priorities wrong. Classic Cars and now f2.

 

Ja, leider wird dieses lachhafte auch bei f1 2019 so sein. Codemasters legt leider die Prioritäten falsch. Classic Cars und nun noch f2.

Actually in races it has no effect on tyres go try it, basically around 5% extra wear at most but massive benefits in car handling

Again the biggest weaknesses in the game at this point - setups and telemetry - which are essential for F1 teams to be competitive

another thing they need to fix is ....how it's worded for MAX and MIN

-2.5 is not MAX camber... its MIN.

-3.5 is not MIN camber, its MAX.

you listen to ANY driver or engineer talk about camber, when the tyre is not tilting (no camber) that's called MINIMUM camber.  When it is tilting at an angle (in the f1 games -3.5 is the biggest tilt) that's called MAXIMUM camber.

 the effect the diff sliders has seems backwards also. To me it feels like the on throttle slider to the left labeled unlocked makes the car turn less or understeer on throttle and to the right labeled locked makes the car turn more or cause oversteer on throttle. In reality a unlocked diff would make the car turn more and oversteer on throttle from the inside wheel being able to turn at a different speed thus rotating the rear of the car. A locked on throttle diff would make the car turn less on throttle because both rear wheels can only turn at the same speed causing the car to have on throttle understeer from the inside wheel losing grip and not rotating the rear of the car.

At least they have made the big improvement of removing the ability to change ballast, which should lead to a more balanced set-up as it basically worked as a cheat to get the car to rotate through corner entry with minimum wing/camber.
