    I love touring cars, so count me in! A couple of questions, if I may.

    - I wasn't expecting to be drifting around corners! Is upping the rear wing the only way to stop the back end stepping out? (I know sod all about setting up cars...)

    - Am I right in thinking car choice is purely cosmetic? The game says they're essentially all the same, and I'm guessing bodywork doesn't play a part in the physics, right?

    upping the rear wing does help a little but you can do some suspension tweeks but I'm not really the one to ask about setups but if you jump on TS you will get some good advice on there :)

    The car choice is 100% cosmetic. Setups and handling are the same accross all the cars.

    Fanstasic, thanks. :thumbsup: Looking forward to this one. Haven't raced touring cars since Race 07 four years ago.

    Looks like you are to fast going into the corner, thats why you drift.

    "Go slow to go fast"

    (You should know why you are slower, if not maybe upload your best lap?)

    Here is my setup after ~8 laps

    Thanks! :thumbsup: I know the old "slow in, fast out" rule very well but I'm notoriously bad at following it... it's probably why my driving never improves! :x3: Your best lap in the video is almost a second faster than mine so far. I'll have another practice tomorrow and try your brake points, see how I get on.

    Can you add me to the list please.

    I do have a question, do I need to be there for 7pm for the start of Practice or can I come in, a bit later, just incase I am still eating or testing my setup?

    You do not need to be there for 7pm. Practice starts at 7pm but as long as you are there by 8pm is ok as thats when the race starts.

    1.See that you don't have to much rear brake bias, not locking up the rear tires
    2. reduce rear springs, so they are softer and that will give more grip
    3. reduce rear ARB for a smoother transition when cornering, maybe the car is a bit twitchy
    4. since all of the cars are FWD, never ever release the gas pedal completely, when you are braking still keep it 2-5% pressed, it will help with not locking up the fronts and the overall corner entry stability

    If my trip goes well, I want to give it a go, haven't played proper AMS for a good while now. Just hope to find a good ffb setting for my TS-PC, as that has been difficult in recent times
    Tomorrow around noon I should be able to confirm if I am attending or not
