Need help with Qual to Race setup

  1. Hi,

    I am trying to learn (again) how to setup F1 cars after long time of not playing these games. I have a Qualifying setup for Bahrain and I want to do a non stop race in 28 lap race (50% dist). I know its rfactor and not GP4 but i figured that the setup principle is the same?

    I know that each setup is individual but what do I need to change from Qual setup to do my non stop race as a rough guide?
    I use full TC and ABS.
    Its MMG 2007 mod if that helps.

    here is my Qualifying setup:

    //CGRightSetting=10//50.0:50.0
    CGRearSetting=14//43.2:56.8 (weight distribution)

    //FrontTireCompoundSetting=1//Hard
    //RearTireCompoundSetting=1//Hard
    FuelSetting=134//135L (32laps)

  3. I'm only familiar with the CTDP F1 mod, but basically I only change these things from qual to race (usually):

    - Decrease boost and revlimit (seems you don't have this in your setup)
    - Increase radiator size
    - Increase brake duct setting
    - Increase brake disk thickness
    - Add fuel
    - Harder tires

    At least these are the important parameters to make sure the car lasts for a full 100% race.

    If you just pick your qual setup and apply hard tires, that will do the trick.

    I did a 30 lap race on Bahrain (mmg2007pe) and did the medium (softest I could attach) with 1 pitstop. All laptimes good and no issues with wear.

    If you need I can upload my setup from that race. Me was the winning driver :skywalker:
