Try messing with the camber and toe also if you’re still struggling have a go at the anti roll bar  :D

Yeah, yeah... I'm trying, but setup work isn't my thing. I love closed setups. One worry less for me... oh well :cry:

Back for round two and hopefully as good as a race we had last week and back with the pre race interview? 

What are your thoughts on catulunya as a track? 

How are you finding the setup of the Porsche gt3 cup car? 

If you could change one thing about the car what would it be?

I like the track a lot of kerbs though and make traction hard. 
The setup is hard but I enjoying playing around and I can find a good balance but not for this track yet sadly :(
For me it would be a fully open setup meaning I could have control over bumpstops and spring rate would be lovely, but I do like the semi closed setup means it’s more down to driver :) 
See you guys tomorrow night :)

Hi guys,
I probably can't make it today, have some family obligations, I will try but don't promise anything.
I'm very sorry  :(
Cheers

The track would be better with the "moto" layout. The flow in the last sector is completely gone with the newer F1-layout. The track has some interesting spots, but it is too bumpy with this car.

Simply enough, although I'm always a friend of fixed setups. That suits me better, since I really can't do proper setups.

The engine in the middle, like the RSR :D

For all North American drivers, be aware that we have change clock this night but not yet in Europe. It means the session will start 1 hour later than usual. Europe will change to BST in March 25th.

I wish we could change to one hour earlier when both are in the same time bracket again. For me starting 21:00 is way too late.

Maybe it’s something I will consider  :?:

It would be nice. I mean, the earlier the better, but that's just me. Ending the races later than 22:00 local time would be bad. Mondays I must get out of bed really early... Plus my concentration isn't the best to race :_(

Well, I have no idea WTF is wrong with the game. I load up into the pits, select drive to start lapping and the shifter does not work. Exit out, check the settings, they are set and the game recognizes. Basically I sit in the pits and can't shift into first to start driving.

WTF.

Finally back functioning however, I have to leave in 15 minutes to pick up my wife from the airport.  By the time I get back I'll have about 20 minutes before qualifying, and considering I've had about 4 laps around the circuit in total I am going to bow out of this race.  No time for set up and no time to practice will make me a rolling hazard.  

Good luck gents, keep it clean and rubber side down!

Don't be that way. 20 mins praccy plus Q is enough to have fun. We'll give you some pointers with the setup or something. C'mon!
