    Notes
    Hey guys this is my first setup, I want to share with you.
    AI is set on expert with all driving aids off.
    I am using the Thrustmaster 458 Spider Wheel on Xbox One.
    I was working long on this setup until I was quite happy with the stability of the car and an acceptable tyre wear. On this track, it is hard to get a good feel for the rear but I hope my settings suit you. My aim was to find a good race setup and to come close to the real times this season. Nasr had a 1:43,902 as fastest lap time. My stint ranges around 1:45 on primes, so one can imagine to be as fast as Nasr or faster on options. I also had 66kg at the beginning, so there is a huge reserve.
    Would be nice to read some comments :) Hope you enjoy the setup

  3. I like this because all the time im seeing setups for Mercedes and Red Bull. Im doing my career with Manor Marussia, do you think you can create a setup for them?
     
  4. McLaren please for ps4 , thanx :)
     
  5. Hey Jazzar, thanks for your reply ;) I was driving with a Manor minutes ago in order to find a good setup (at least for me). It is not easy to drive this car, there are a few differences to my Sauber. But I used my posted setup as a basis and just changed minor things:

    Camber front -3.2 instead of -3.1
    Toe rear 0.32 instead of 0.35
    Front spring and front anti roll bar 2 instead of 3
    (Ballast 4)

    Notes: I reduced front camber to get more grip on the front because the car was very unstable. Maybe one has to set camber rear 1 click more negative too did not try that but it will reduce traction and I do not want this. Toe rear should give you more stability, especially out of turn 9, stay easy on the throttle (uneven track) and get the car to the left side without much use of the wheel.
    And Spring + Anti roll bar should further stabilize the front without having to much problem in fast turning.. I tried it with fuel for 25 laps and ranged around a 1:46 on primes which seems reasonable.

    Hope it helps ;)

    Best

  6. Man you're a legend. Thanks! Actually did the Malaysia race yesterday on your Sauber setup, Managed to squeeze in a 1:41.1 on Options. Setups is a big must to make sure you hit your targets during Quali!

    You can see that I make several mistakes in the qualifying lap. The McLaren Honda is quite difficult to drive. And it has a very important power deficit.
