    Here's mine, BUT this setup is from early version, since 0.6 this car slides much more. So maybe add 1-2 clicks on rear wing ;) The more problems u have on Ascari, the higher the rear wing, but if too much you lose on the straights! Monza is always low aero track, minimizing the aero drag.

    1:47.3 PB with medium(not much slower from soft), but laptimes I think are slower now. :cautious:

    BTW you might be better off with medium slicks, it's a much more stable and predictable tire. In theory softs should be faster but only a little little bit and they last only 1 flying lap(you need to do 1 lap to wear them in too).

    JG, it wasn't easy with your set up, had to add quite some rear wing to get grip. I'll practice some more...

    I am extremely time limited if I get 1 or 2 hours per week to practice its a lot.
    I have remedial computer skills. I am trying to download a setup but when I open
    it is not like iracing where you can install it it is just a readout of info.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Username/documents/assetto corsa/setups

    choose the car
    choose the track

    Appreciate it :) I've tweaked a bit with gear ratio and brake bias and I improved to the 51's but I can't seem to get the extra 2-3 secs I need ...

    I've got three.
    One is a stable, 1/2 downforce version, which is slower, and one is a more twitchy, faster and more on edge (that can can turn in the same speed and tops out at 273) with 0/1 downforce.
    Then there's the middle ground, the fairly stable 0/1 setup (better on the brakes) that is in the middle when it comes to speed.
    Slowest to fastest in order:
    1 - Vaoh
    2- Z4 GT3
    3- Hotlap 3
    Goodluck!

    The issue I'm having is from the aero loss. I cant seem to get enough mechanical grip out of the car without going really extreme on the sliders.

    So full ARB and cranking up the negative camber. I've also tried increasing both diffs to gain mid corner and corner exit grip but I still can't hold on to the thing and plant the corner exits.

    I tried Tals 0/0 setup and for some reason his grips whereas mine doesn't.

    So I guess what I'm asking for is a brief guide to gaining mechanical grip when extra aero is not and option.
