Chevrolet Corvette C6.R setups

Discussion in 'iRacing Setups' started by William Nowell, Dec 26, 2010.

  1. Ok guys, this has proven to be a tricky combo for me. Spa seems to be a 1x monster. It has been very hard for me to put in clean or consistent laps. I jumped into a hosted race with this combo the other day and it seems as though I am not the only one having trouble. This became very apparent durning qualifying as there were a lot of people who fail to put in a clean lap durning the allotted time. Well anyway the best I could put down was 2:16.7 with race fuel, I'm sure there will be alot of guys faster then that and hopefully by race time I will be faster then that. I'll post my setup but keep in mind that I am not a setup guy, I try to adjust until the tire temps are good and for what feels good to me, I'm sure some of the guys who know can make it faster but it is predictable and stable. I'm still playing with the fuel so it may need just a little more to make the 15 laps.

  3. Post your Chevrolet Corvette C6.R setups here!

    Sebring by Will Marquez

    Was wondering if anybody has a stable Vette setup for Sebring? The one I've been running with is the Sebring fixed setup that iRacing has and it's quite a beast here.

    What times are you guys running here with the Vette?
  4. I have tried the fixed setup and I tried the setup Lars put out for the SPA event. Both have put me in the 1:58 range, and I didn't see that huge of a difference.
  5. Ok thanks Joe. Guess I just need to put in more laps with the Vette. PB is in the 59s and optimal in the 58s but can't seem to put it all together quite yet.
  6. Here's the setups that I've been using to start practicing for this event.

    Credit for these setups goes to PJ Stergios.

  10. It would be really cool if you could get an introduction maybe in terms of the handling of the setups :)

    Some like oversteery, some neutral and some likes to have a car that understeers just over the limit.

    These setups are based on the fixed iRacing provided and were then altered drastically to provide for more agility and better tyre management. Generally I think the sets I posted are pretty neutral. They'll easily make the high and mid-speed corners once you know how the car works in those corners. The only problem seems to be slow turns. I find it difficult to set the Corvette up for those. I'll also add that the Sebring and Road America sets are less good than the Silverstone set, because I simply made those earlier in the season.

  12. Thanks, small info like that is fantastic because i can now get an idea if they will fit me or not, thanks for the setups!

    You won't get that idea until you drive them. There's several ways in which a car can understeer and oversteer. Some you will like, some you will not.
  14. I disagree. some setups are oversteery all the time, some just wont oversteer unless you abuse the car.

    Setups can differ greatly so by getting a slight info on the handling i dont have to download setups to realise they were made for a person with a driving style on the other end of the spectrum.

    But I don't know how my driving style compares to yours. I might find my setup to oversteer, while you find that it still understeers. Moreover, words can only describe the feeling of the car so much. In the end, if you want to know what a setup drives like, you'll have to actually drive it.

  16. I disagree. Setups vary drastically.

  18. What im saying is that if you build a setup that is very oversteery by nature it will always be oversteery by nature, the driver does not matter to much.

    So if i am a driver that like understeery setups at the limit, i don´t want anything that will oversteer when pushed. That will save me time and not download the setups because they won´t fit my driving style at all because my style of driving is on the other end of the spectrum.

    Same with understeery setups. They will understeer over the limit no matter who the driver is. Thus, if you get a small info like you posted above saying it´s either understeery, neutral or oversteery by nature it allows for people to quickly decide if it´s something they should or should not download in the first place.

    A setup is nothing more than a bunch of numbers resulting in a certain set of abilities for a car. Changing certain settings will make a car more understeered or more oversteered and therefore the one setup is generally more oversteered or understeered than the other. However, whether a setup feels oversteered or understeered to a certain drivers depends completely on what he expects from the car and what his personal driving style is.

    Gregger Huttu might be talking about his somewhat understeering, but stable setup, while I find that setup massively oversteered. Same setup, different perspectives.

    That is why you should try a setup and judge for yourself. I can tell you it's stable, but you might think it undrivable.

  20. We´ll just have to agree to disagree.
