    EDIT: Never mind.
    Turns out that getting a better grasp on what the shock-settings actually do helps immensely. :rolleyes:

    So I've been working on a set-up for tomorrows race at Mugello.
    Turns out that these race-cars are dreadfully complicated things. :)
    But I do seem to have narrowed it down to what is IMO a fairly balanced set-up for the Accord.
    6th gear might need a nudge up, not really sure.

    One slight problem though:
    It absolutely EATS tires. :confused:
    Rear-wheels isn't too bad, but after 3-4 laps the front-wheels are really starting to hurt.
    So is there anything I can do to mitigate this without unbalancing the whole thing?
    Any help would be appreciated, even if it's after the race.
    Just please talk to me like I'm not a petrol-head.
    ('cause I'm not :D )

    Cheers,
    Lars

    PS: Yes, I realize that going slower would save on the tire-wear, but that kinda defeats the purpose of the exercise, doesn't it? :roflmao:

    Seems like you already got it working, but usually, reducing camber (adjust towards the positive, e.g. from -4.0 to -3.5) helps with tyre wear getting too bad :)
