Formula 3 lack of downforce

Discussion in 'Stock Car Extreme' started by Jos Swarthoff, Nov 30, 2014.

  1. at high speed the rear end just goes away while driving this car.

    default downforce settings were 30/30, I changed it to 20/30 but this the rear end just said bye bye at high speed.

  2. no... formula 3 is very stable car
    • Agree Agree x 1
  3. agreed very solid
  4. On a reiza track?
  5. Among the formulas, the F3 is the car more downforce and as mentioned, more stable. You need a balance on adjusting the wings (front / rear), and most importantly, identify and respect the car's speed according to the lane stretch.
  6. Add more rear wing (e.g. 35) and make sure to not hit the gas pedal to hard when going through corners. With a few setup tweaks the F3 is really stable and easy to drive, with the default setup however I find it far to easy to make the rear swing out and lose control.
  7. Sounds like it's bottoming out. Add stiffer springs, and ride height to this car.

    Here's even a setup you can try, which worked well at Interlagos.
