Here is an early set - Play with the rear wing adjustment to make the tighter or looser to your liking. I was able to get high 1:23s with race fuel on a 107tt.

Updated Set, adjusted the brake bias and front camber, was able to pick up 2 tenths.

I'm taking the hairpin (turn 8) in 2nd, seems to keep me from spinning it around. Also be careful with the last turn coming onto the front strait. If you hit the banking too early you will damage your front wing and it will cost you 1 second per lap and about 8-10 sec repair in the pits. Take the turn 14 left hander a little slower to get a straighter shot onto the front stretch.

This is a fun combo. I wish the road layouts were available for AI racing. They only offer the oval right now.

the first set was good, but this set is gooder.  I added one click of rear wing to both.

Another thing you can try instead of adding wing is adjusting the rake of the car. More rake adds front grip, whereas less rake adds rear grip.

Thanks for the tip!  I’ll test it out!

Great race, some excellent battles going on towards the back and finding a passing area was tough.  Glad to see a lot of give and take on the opening laps.

I had a good run going until it didnt fuel me on my pitstop...thats a great way to lose 7 positions nice and cleanly with nary a spin.

I have had that happen to me during an Autobahn race while leading.
