    Welp, really sorry for my pathetic driving yesterday. These last few days have been a mess and I pretty much couldn't focus at all. Even let a few people pass since I didn't want to make it worse. Should be better for Sunday's race.

    I don't know if any of you are willing to share this info with the league coming up but just a quick question.

    Can any of the Fanatec pedal owners share their pedal settings please?

    I noticed last night I was using about 30% braking into Club and Brooklands, any harder and the ABS was cutting in big time. It wasn't a big issue but it doesn't seem to be very realistic.

    I have the load cell sensor set to about 7-8, are there any ideal settings in game that would make things better for me?

    Wasn't doing too bad last night, I haven't driven the full circuit in this car so took me a while to pick the correct gears. I did try Giuseppe's setup but was having trouble controlling the corner entry so went back to the base setup I already had, no doubt it's quick but I just haven't got used to it yet.

    My only bad habit was trying to carry a bit too much speed into the corners and that was causing the car to wash out at the front, just a case of trying too hard too soon. Confirmed by those that passed me by pulling away on corner exit.

    The Spa set-up I posted was quite extreme, to make it more stable reduce the front camber. A start point is -3.3 deg, giving a nice compromise grip vs camber thrust. Adding more negative camber would only add more thrust making the car more reactive at steering inputs.
    With this car is more important to stay on throttle mid corner keeping the momentum than to have a strong corner entry.
