Help with understeer on ADAC cars

Discussion in 'RaceRoom Racing Experience' started by Sean Kenney, Dec 13, 2014.

  1. So I seem to have massive understeer issues for the ADAC cars. I am sort of not really sure how best to tackle it, I have tried a few things which have helped, but curious what others have done for this...if they even experience it.

    It mostly seems like my car doesn't initially turn enough...if that makes sense

    I have a g27 wheel....I have messed with the steering lock a bit, but I don't want to get an really high value for it, unless I need to.

    Try 540/19 as a steering ratio for several laps before you decide it is understeer. If you've already tried that, then it's tuning time. ;)
  3. doesn't a 19 mean I have to turn the wheel more?
  4. Use less rear wing, softer front, stiffer rear and TRAIL BRAKE, :D
    For some turns you have to put your car in a slight drift.
  5. whats trail brake?
  6. Hope that explains it:

    loosen front anti roll bar , if not enough - stiffen rear roll bar this is the fast way to get lesser understeer loose ( low numbers ) stiff ( high numbers )

    Hhmmm, yes ...

    Have a look at this: from the advanced setup guide on lfsmanual.net (live for speed).
    In your case I would decrease front rebound and increase rear compression.
    Tell me if that has changed your driving.

    Start with the most obvious: increase negative toe-in of the front wheels.
  10. Thanks guys, I will see what it does. :)
  11. Dumb question? What is compression in R3e?
  12. is it bump?

    Yes indeed. Compression = bump
