I uploaded a setup for the Porsche for Indy, with reduced rear springs and slightly reduced toe on front and rear.

Did a full stint with this one last night with an average lap time of 1:32.654. For the last 20l of fuel I slapped on new tires to check, whether the beginning power oversteer was due to tires or setup. Looked like the tires solely, as I didn't face the problem with fresh tires, and my lap times went down to 1:30.xxx.

We may find some pace with tire pressures when we find the sweet spot. Here is a chart of last nights session:

Also the temps do not look ideal yet:

Here we go with slightly changed cold pressures:

That was after around 8 laps, and I think we even get a tad higher after 10-12 laps.

I think we should aim for 27-28 psi (1,86 - 1,93 bar). I searched the www for info about that, but there is no specific value given anywhere.

Where are we pace wise now @Battenberg @Nighttiger @Gosku? I tried Goskus Sebring setup on Indy last night, could do low to mid 1:31 consistently on full fuel, although the car was a tad too slidy for my liking in some corners.

With my latest setup I manage 1:29 consistently, I'll try to compare the different setups next week. I am moving apartments this weekend so I won't be able to practice.

Would be nice if we can get all our heads together for a p2 practice in the week at some point? I know Mo wants to drive tomorrow anyway and I will be about so is anyone else interested?

I'm 90% sure I'm unavailable to race as I'm karting away but if the boat is canceled i could do a stint and I'll assist with set up anyway :)

Did some running in gt and uploaded setup on resources. I tested it both on 90l and 20l tanks and it felt pretty stable on both

Small update on GTE car #271 in division 3(@Nighttiger , @Gosku , @Shepard ).

I started with qualification and a two hour stint. Quali went very well and I managed to put the car in P4. Good start, made some small mistakes in both stints costed me around 25 seconds, luckily no damage and after some good battles fought back to P4. Just handed the car over to @Gosku who is doing a 3-hour stint probably. 2 hours done and around 7 hours to go!
