    Really unfortunate that I can't do weekday races. :( Especially since it's Bathurst, one of my favorite tracks. If any of you need help taming the beast that is this track/car combo, feel free to check out my hotlap in the Ford GT GT1.

    A great reference for braking points. The car is also pretty stable on the descent, even more so than the GT3s which I find have a really unstable rear end regardless of what I do with the setup.

    Amusez-vous les amis!:D :thumbsup:

    Well, in case you're going to drive the Ford for this one, use this setup. I eased up the springs a little to add stability during the descent and momentum changes. The only thing you could play with if you don't feel comfortable is bring the brake balance a little more towards the rear. You'll probably want to put the Traction Control to Preset 2 for quali and the race, but you can try it with no TC in practice for a little bit of fun. :D
