    Join us for a fun evening of open wheeled club racing action and setup basics.


    Wait? What is this?
    This event is meant to be the step between the normal Club Races and the Friendly Events.
    That means an easy to drive car with clear racing affinity and a slightly open setup (tires, brakes, anti-roll-bars and wings).
    The goal of this event is to get used to play with the basics of the car setup without getting too technical about it.

    Who can join?

    I'm in, wish we could adjust rear aero as I feel like we need a bit more freedom on the setups

    Yeah I need to try what has more influence and what has not. I feel like Toe and ARBs doesn't do anything on this car... So maybe lock them up again and just open the wings and maybe dampers or something.
    I want to give us freedom, without a big impact to the lap times....

    Would be nice :)
    Of course you are, you didn't disadvantage someone and just drove off. The spinning cars were going past you and Scott didn't spin after you jumped at him:cautious::laugh:
    His POV of that is awesome btw :roflmao:

    Signing you up now:thumbsup:

    Imho wings and arb are the most important. Keep those, lock the rest.

    Did you actually changed the arb in Barcelona? Maybe you could post your setup you used yesterday? Would be very interesting! :)

    I found the ARBs made a bit of difference at Barcelona, I had the front around 30 which made the front end more reactive to steering to me than when it was at 20, I had tried different settings during practice, including 15, and the difference was quite large to me personally

    I usually change the arb and it makes quite a difference. Yesterday, since i had no time, i only changed the front wing to 11 and adjusted the tire pressure. At silverstone i remember i reduced the front arb to 25-20 and it gave me 4 tenths just with that.

    Ah okay :)
    Then it's ARB and both wings at Mugello. Shouldn't need too much tinkering!

    OK, now I'm confused - I thought that decreasing front ARB should make the front end more responsive, not increasing it. Am I mixed up or did you mean to say the numbers the other way around?

    Gonna sign you up later when not on the phone :)
    To ARBs: the lower the setting the more the body can roll and the more grip you will have. Therefore also less understeer or more oversteer. But you will also lose a bit of responsiveness due to that roll.

    increase front arb: understeering (less grip) + faster response
    decrease front arb: oversteering (more grip) + slower response

    Just to add my 10 cents worth, I managed a 1:45.70 on mediums with:

    Front wing: 9
    Front toe: 8
    Rear toe: 7
    Front ARB: 30 (although I didn't try any lower)
    Rear ARB: 1

    I had offline ambient temp set to 23c which I think was a bit lower than the online session as I had to drop the tyre pressures for the race last night (due I guess to higher temps). Tyres at 23c ambient in any case were set to optimise the operating pressures according to sidekick and were as follows:

    LF: 15
    RF: 18
    LR: 14
    RR: 15

    Everything else was as per the online session, e.g. ABS off etc etc. I'm sure this lap could have been quicker though as my braking and overall consistency are still very much "work in progress" ;)

    The setup though seemed to give good pace especially through the quick corners. The front end was quite pointy so had a nice bite, the rear was possibly a bit loose, or maybe that was just my dodgy throttle control! Seemed nicely balanced in any case.

    Thanks for sharing, that's what I wanna see in this "amateurs" event series :)
    Little note: the Rear Wing is also open. Edited the OP :)
    Ambient will be around 33°C like the real weather and Track a bit hotter than Barcelona, around 45°C.
    And yes, when I still run these events in December it's gonna be -5°C on Nurburgring :p:speechless:
