  2. Hello everyone,

    have someone a setup for wet? And a question i have as i'm almost new at F1 games. In a track with 75 % chance of raining as it is for the qualifying and 22% chance of raining for race. Which setup i should use? It will rain effectively?

    Thanks in advance.

    Notes
    10 Laps of fuel in FP3, tyres were about 3/4 laps old, My fastest time is 1:48.456 (P2), +0.491 behind P1

    would appreciate feedback on this to see if I can get it any better
     
  4. Yes that would mean there would be more rain than dry conditions. Personally I would go with rain setups as it is much easier to drive with a rain setup in the dry than the other way around, even if rain is only present 40% of the time.

    Notes:
    Time has been set with normal fuel mix but I think it'd be best to use the faster mix on straights and switch back to normal when accelerating out of corners. I don't know if it's just me but I'm under the impression that the car will turn in better if it's in first gear, so shifting down to first and back to second just before accelerating might've helped as well.

    I couldn't record a video since my FPS go down to around 15 once I start recording but here's a screenshot. Time has been set on Expert difficulty, so no driving aids.

  8. Great set up! I used your wet set up in dry condition (Q3) because the race showed 100% Rain (and I got pole :O_o: )

  10. Its going to be a mess to find set ups for the track, at least rd creates a subforum

    That's why the setup should be posted in the correct format here, the method used for ages. Videos are not required or needed to post a setup, just the text .... :)
     

  12. You're first set-up is absolutely amazing. I had a decent time with a 1:46.xxx on TT before I tried it. Now I'm ranked 56 on PSN Leaderboards with a 1:43xxx and I am running mid 1:45 in online races! I used to be horrible on wet tracks but now I have a little more confidence and a good base setup for most tracks. Thanks!!!!!
