    Thanks Keith, I have used similar guidelines.

    My only query, with diff settings, I find opposite reactions depending on whether I am driving a FWD vs RWD car???
     
  6. Warren ive found with RWD, the reaction ends up depending on how your drive with those settings.

    But this guide is more geared towards FWD in that aspect. But the rest can be applied to near all cars.

    :)
     
  8. Thank you Keith, will be putting this to the test very soon :) Nice someone managed to condense a setup manual into a single page!
     
  9. thnx keith,

    I think I'm gonna be using this page very often...
     
  10. very useful ... tnx Keith
     
  11. No problem guys, just been on my list of things to do, and had the motivation...I am really glad to help when I can. I wish you all the best of luck in future races.
     
  12. From my experience, this is how the diff settings affect the cars in ISI games.

    FWD:

    More power = more diff lock under throttle which gives a bit more understeer
    More coast = more diff lock while braking which also gives a bit more understeer
    More preload = more understeer while maintaining speed. Doesn't seem to affect things that much though unlike the other 2.

    RWD:

    More power = more diff lock under throttle which gives a bit more oversteer
    More coast = more diff lock while braking which also gives a bit more understeer up to a point. If you lock up at the rear it will lock both with ease and you'll spin.
    More preload = more oversteer while maintaining speed. Doesn't seem to affect things that much though unlike the other 2.

    Also, nice guide Keith, should help some people out who aren't sure what to change :)
     
  13. Cheers James, I will add this and differentiate FWD and RWD. I tested a bit with this and you are correct.

    Lovely community we have here, people helping people :)

  14. Top post updated with the help of James Yates on Power/Coast :D
     
  15. Very nicely done Keith and James!
     
  16. Awesome!

    Thanks
     
  17. Many thanks!

    Wonderful guide, I´ve been using it since last week and seen nice handling improvements. Short, simple and straight to the point. I´ve been using other set up guides and went almost crazy many times trying to setup the car properly following endless steps.

    Thanks!

    thanks for this guys, hopefully now i can make the step from semi to pro i only needed a fine tweaking to try and stop my backend breaking loose :)
     
  19. I'd also recommend getting the MOTEC Add software, It's really helped me with camber and tyre pressures after changes to things like wings and roll bars. My lap time have come tumbling. Although I do find that you'll nearly always end up with an asymetric set up specific to the track that you're running.
     
  20. If you put done the throttle it brakes out?
