    Notes
    **Time Trial Setup** - It's been some time. I posted setups for previous titles, and this year I plan on sharing my setups for every track. Loving the game so far and only done TT. To ensure I found something that works, I completed over 100 laps with various setups. I'm still learning how the options work, so there's room for improvement.

    After moving the Ballast further to the rear of the car, I finally broke into the 1:25s on my 102nd lap, a few tenths quicker than my previous attempt. 95th in the PC leaderboards. I use assists, full traction, ABS, and an Xbox controller, so I'm happy with the time. Do not use this setup for races using tyre wear and fuel, you may need to alter the camber and toe so your tyres don't burn out at the end of stints. Would appreciate any feedback on how it handles, and I'm open to trying tweaks.

    This game is harsh with penalties such as leaving the track. Therefore Australia is a nightmare as you drive on the curbs and it's so easy to run wide. To get a good time takes a lot of patience, and getting that tricky sector two perfect.

    Magaged a 1.24,824 with this Setup, but i lost 2 tenths in turn 8 and another 2 in the second last corner.
    So a mid 24 is easy possible ;)

    Hey guys, I am very happy with this setup, was tweaking a lot but I think I can start the race with it. Tyre wear is very good, you should do at least 20 laps on softs. Average lap time with softs and 25 lap fuel weight was 1:31.5. Did not try supersoft with low fuel yet. Improved rear stability out of the corners by toe and tried to found all around dynamics for one of my absolute favourite tracks. Hope you can work with the setup and enjoy, would nice to hear some feedback/comments. Cheers!

  6. Hello bud I'll give this setup a go tonight
     
  7. Good base to start with in the McLaren Honda. I changed off throttle down to 60%, Rear Suspension to 5, swapped the anti roll bar values, put brake pressure on 75%. Using M compound in Practice 3, I set a 1:32.XXX. Xbox One, Controller.

    Notes:
    This is on the ps4, with controller. I find it a pretty good basic setup. Tweak to your liking. You shouldn't have to do much adjusting, but it will be needed in a couple areas to get it to perform to your driving style. Good luck and drive safe. Caution: Do not attempt this at home, all racing and stunts are performed by professional drivers on a closed Curcuit. Please be safe and always wear a helmet.

    Notes
    *Race Setup* - I'm up to Silverstone in career mode and it's a rainy practice session so I'm going to post all that I've put together so far.

    I started career on Ultimate difficulty, but I found it a little challenging so I tried Expert for the first two races. After that, I upped it to Master, and I find it's still a little easy, but I have to earn the results a lot more. I'll probably put it up one more next season.

    Also I have completed all R&D programs to "Perfect". Therefore the tyre wear should be optimal while also having the speed due to completing Track Acclimatisation and Qualifying Pace.

    In the races I have favoured 3-stop strategies over two, as the AI tend to look after their tyres better and I like some clean air between the 2-stoppers. Doing it this way means you have cars to pass though.

    The AI are pretty ruthless and will always go for the move. I've found in some DRS zones they will pass you .. yet won't drive back to the racing line giving you the chance to get them back under braking. However, fighting so hard to keep much quicker cars behind you leads to regret later when you come out behind a similar paced car on the last stint. Managing pace is crucial, knowing when to push, when to save fuel, all the little things you can do that the AI often messes up on.

    In Australia I had a crazy race with lots of close racing and incidents. After the mayhem I managed to come home in 4th, pretty nice for a Sauber.
