HELP Tyre Wear

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by jiimmygo33, Nov 12, 2011.

  1. How can I reduce TYRE WEAR, currently this is my setup for Turkey:

    Front Wing: 8
    Rear Wing: 10

    Balance 50-50

    Front anti roll bar 8
    Rear anti roll bar 8

    Front Ride Height: 1
    Rear Ride Height: 1
    Front Spring Stiffness: 8
    Rear Spring Stiffness: 7

    Camber Front: -3.20
    Camber Rear: -1.10
    Toe Front: 0.15
    Toe Rear: 0.50

    Help me

    Looking for 2 stops in a Turkey 100% race
  2. Why would you want to do 2 stops? If the game defaults to 3 stops, you should go for 4 stops, not less. One pit stop takes about 20 seconds extra. By taking another options instead of prime, you should be at least 2 seconds per lap faster. Which means you recover that time lost in the pits in 10 laps. And you will continue to gain time for rest of the race.

    Do the math yourself. Time your lap in prime and then in options. Note the difference and do the math. More stops will almost always come out ahead. Not only that, even if you somehow stretch the tires, you will definitely be running around with tires with virtually no grip and lose even more time.

  3. Still I need something to low down the Tyre Wear, with options it only lasts for about 10-11 laps I need to make them last 14 o 15 laps
  4. Then turn the Fuel mix to 1 and check i noticed when i turn down the Mix to 1 it won't push the car hard so there will be less pressure on the tires it worked for me i made my primes lasts longer in canada for 32 laps which are soft set tires
  5. I don't know what you're doing to only last 10 laps. They should last 14 laps no problem. Perhaps you ran too many laps during qualifying and you're starting with very worn tire? What % is the tire you're starting with? I'd recommend 3 stop strategy at Turkey. 12 laps on options and 22 laps on prime.

    Start - Options
    Lap 12 - Prime
    Lap 34 - Options
    Lap 46 - Options
  6. The camber and toe settings have an impact on tyre wear so maybe experiment with those to see if you can reduce the wear to the extent you want. You just have to get the balance right between the wear rate and handling that you are happy with. Your driving style also greatly effects the life of the tyres, if you are locking up the brakes you are not going to be helping the situation so try adjusting the brake balance a bit too.
  7. too much wing, too much stabilizer, to much toe

    gamepad or wheel?

    and dont use the springbug.
  8. Do you have any decent setup, that can share, or at least some tips on how to configure them
    I use wheel, no aids
  9. Reduce front abr
    Increase rear
    Less camber(-.3 or 2.8 depending on turn in needs but your springs are soft anyways)
    And less rear toe
    Also consider medium brake pressure and a click or two rearwards for bias in order to prevent lock-up and excessive front wear
  10. I usually always use rear camber .50
  11. Options at Turkey lasts 20 laps. If he can only make it last 10 laps, problem is not the setup.
