    really suspension is 6666 wouldnt that make a little too much body roll, i thought that the cars were needed to be really low so that they got more downforce. am i wrong? just wandering.

    To be honest this is just a rough set up but it was good enough to get me to P1 in practice. I'm going to fine tune it though because I'm not sure how well Quali will go. I'll update once I test out some more changes!

    Come quali it'll be a different ballgame. I'd say drop the rideheight to 2-2 or 2-3, just my opinion

    I changed the suspension as follows:

    Front Ride Height: 4
    Rear Ride Height: 3
    Front Spring Stiffness: 5
    Rear Spring Stiffness: 4

    Improved my Q1 time to 1:39.345 and finished P1 after Q1
    Q2: 1:38.226 - P1
    Q3: 1:38.372 - P1 (Pole)

    I ran this setup (I included Recruits changes), but with 8 on the front wing, and 4 on the rear, and got a 1:36.983 in Q2 in career mode. Q3 it rained.

    Edit: I also used High Pressure brakes.
