  14. Ofcourse :D
    Could someone probably tell me a few tricks to drive faster with this cars; because I am 7 seconds off the AI's and I am driving like a granny. I am losing the rear way to easy, both on fast corners and slow. Oh and I can't touch the kurbs without the car spinning emidiatly.

    I'm tempted to give these a go, but with it being the 1st there's no guarantees i'd be home in time/in a fit state. Maybe from me too please.

    I'm no expert, in fact i haven't even tried the mod yet, but adding rear wing to the car should help you. Alternatively, take off some front wing. Increasing ride height and softening the springs should help with the kerbs too.

    I've got no problems throwing the car around like a maniac (oversteer setup), but these Barca curbs are evil. :(

    Having only done 1 race with this cars and spun twice I'm probably not the best person to advise, but here is what I know.

    You have to basically be gentle with your steering and pedal application specially in the fast coners, quick wheel movements really upset the car balance. Then curbs I would try to soften the suspension.
     
  18. Thank you all for your suggestions.
    The higher the value the softer the springs, right?

    I'm very fast with these cars, gentle is definitely what would NOT describe my driving style. I throw the car in, clip the apex (sometimes), floor the throttle as quickly as I can and power out of the corner. Only way I feel comfortable, and that requires a specific setup. Kind of like Senna's driving style, more potential to be fast as the car turns in better, but you have to control the rear end on exit, makes the car quite difficult to handle.
    To each their own I guess.
    I find if you really have to take the curbs at this track (there's only one corner I can think of for me which is turn 7), I turn in a bit later to minimise the amount of time spent on the curb.
    Be careful at the chicane, the second curb often forces me into a counter-steer which puts me in the kitty litter.

    Super softs seem to wear quickly at this track, we may have use the soft compound for the race.
