I did an TT lap with a setup. I really like the balance of that one, give it a try. With this car on this track you need to be super smooth. Never push or force the car thru a corner. Glide thru the corner like a pillow on a cloud, super smooth.

I thought the Clucks-Slide-o-Matic is more sophisticated than just smashing your face against the keyboard in the setup menu :pompous:
Not really, no :shame:

I know people still don't believe me when I say I have no idea what I'm doing but I really don't, after all these years. I still drag the sliders around, like a knuckle-dragger, and see what happens. If I like the change, I tweak something else and see what effect that has. Other than simple stuff like downforce, brake bias and radiator/brake ducts, I have no understanding of what all the other things mean or do to a car, they might as well be labelled "Thingy A, Thingy B, Thingy C and so on" for all the difference it makes when I look at them :D

I also don't have the patience to try a setup for 10 or more laps to really get a feel for it. If I don't like it right from the start, I try something else. For me, spending time "in the garage" is wasting time that I could spend on the track actually driving. I found pCARS1 setups a confusing mess, pCARS2 doubly so. I must stress that this is no slight against SMS, it's simply that I don't understand (or want to understand, which is why it's pointless anybody trying to explain it to me!) what it all means.

re. Sugo, I'll grab your setup for the Sugo track and see what it's like. My TT laps are fairly consistent on the default 'loose' setup but it's quite the opposite driving style to the way you describe - I'm hanging the tail out all the time and having a whale of a time doing so :D

I've setup and tuned a car setup in real life and I can tell you SMS gives very little insight to what those numbers actually mean. Maybe they are not allowed to do it on some cars, sure. But still, spring stiffness, damper rate are really just numbers without knowing motion ratios. Knowing the roll-center of those cars would also be very helpful. Camber Gain, heck at least natural sprung frequency ... Without that and some other stuff blind tests is the best approach imo.

Jussis setup calculator has motion ratios, unsprung mass and natural frequency values :)

I'm afraid I have to cancel my sign-up :( The ESL staff just announced the next Go4 Cup tomorrow. They first said there will be no cup tomorrow but now there is. I feel sorry guys but I have good chances to get a spot on the monthly final and I wanna give it a try. I will definitely join the next RSR events if I have the time! Have a good race everyone!

I know I‘m on the reserve list. I will join the briefing and perhaps there is a free slot.

I'm going to pull out of this one, been up all night watching the Daytona race.

Don't want to drift off at the wheel ;)

I’m not able to make tonight now too. Sorry all, I hope there are enough reserves to fill up the grid. Good luck.

Does anyone have a race setup I could use or know where I can find one? I'm not very good with setting up cars.

I'm just using default with less fuel and tyre pressures altered. Otherwise it's a pretty good set up :)
