  3. Thanks for ur advice.

    As the setup guide did not teach
    any about Splitter and Packers
    So i ask for help here..
     
  4. i don't know what packers are, but the splitter is just the front downforce. most cars you can't adjust it, but for those you can, the higher the number, the more downforce on the front.
     
  5. Packers a rubberdisks you add to the springs to prevent the car from haveing ground contact

    It's a million-to-1 chance, but it just might work Premium Member

    So packers are used to give more ride height with the same length of suspension travel? Why not just change the ride height?
     
  7. Grabbed from the GTR2 Owners handbook
     
  8. How does splitter cooperate to rear wing ?
    And how to feel the car have ground contact?
     
  9. Sports car wise, for most tracks leave it on 2, but for fast tracks like Monza I normally put it on 1.

    If you have FFB wheel should feel it, or you can hear a sound effect when the car bottoms out. Another way is to go into a different view where you can see the car and watch it as you go over bumps or watch replay and watch for sparks :good:
     
  10. @Tim, because most, if not all, GT cars have flat bottoms and diffusers fitted so that it will make more downforce the lower the car is to the track surface up to a point, you would then use packers\bump stops to keep the car from bottoming out on bumpier bits which would remove the ground effect, can make the car real nervous if you over do it because you effectively remove the suspension's travel distance so much that the car cannot transfer it's weight front/back the amount it needs to when under acceleration/braking, if you are a kerb rider it can be lethal for the same reason, classic example is setting car up for the Mulsannes with minimum wing/splitter, minimum ride height and packed up to the max so it don't lose speed scraping it's butt over the bumps then having to baby it through the bendy bits, everything has to be a compromise.

  11. i have FFB wheel
    is the feel like the wheel shaking ??
    if the car have ground contact
    i should use packers or increase the ride height ?
     
  12. sometime on tracks like the green hell or LeMans a few packers are not bad but keep it low like max 0.5 but they are somehow the last possible way you should use
    as sayed befor they can make the car near undriveable if you overdo it, more ridehide rise the centerpoint of the car and can make it unstable therefor you want to keep the car as low as possible
    if you feel you cant rise the ride high anymore cuz the car will be unstable you can start add some packers
    but mostlikely you can skip packer if you just rise your Spring rate a bit
     
  13. Is splitter adjust little amount of down force
    for rear wing adjust large amount of down force

    * i am now setting FBMW
     
  14. no..the splitter is front down force, the rear wing is rear down force.

    ..the splitter is just a "wing" on the front of the car

    and if your car bottoms out, you will feel a big hit on your wheel.
     
  15. Oh..
    My expression made a mistake
    As FBMW splitter has lot of deg i can adjust
    i don't know how to compromise between rear wing.
