    Oh this is a lovely track, also the cars behave much more to my liking then those usf2000s (damn Cooper tyres) :cool:

    The ffb is very rumbly for me though? I have driven those cars already when they were released but can't remember if it had been like that.

    Ye this is a better combo, also worth mentioning David noticed that lower psi better grip and tires get next to no wear so everyone should se these pressures I think #bridgestones. I went to 0.46 multi with these and usually wi fr3.5 about 0.7/8 I noticed quite vibration leaving pits.

    Heres mine feels pretty but tire psi made biggest difference :thumbsup:

    For some reason, your Setup did not show up in the garage for me. I had to selector button from vehicle to All.

    Maybe slight different cars ? I picked I think a 2005 model maybe there are differences between the years in performance terms also ?

    They should all be the same from what I know.

    So I am by no means an expert but something seems little off with this cars front tyre grip.
    If they loose traction, understeer and then make a very hard steering input they sometimes regain 100% grip again immediately.
    Do you guys thing this is normal for this car? I watched some onboards and it does indeed seem very glued to the track.
