    Notes
    Time Posted: 1:25:236

    This track confuses me a lot, because it seems like the time trial laps for other people are bugged, like some of the times have not been reset since patch 2 or something.
    I tried to race the quickest time, which is 3 seconds quicker then my own... and the amount of grip he has is absolutely ridiculous.

    Then I tried one a bit further down, someone who has supposed to have set a 1:24:0, and I race against that ghost... and my ghost of 1:25:236 gets to the finish line before the 1:24:0 ghost....
    This really confuses me, as I don't exactly know where my time is relative to others, so whether this setup sucks or not I don't know, and although I am from england, I do find this track difficult.

    If it helps you then great, if it's not then you understand why.

    Thanks for that jiimmygo, I think I may have the braking balance wrong, people should try the front balance on 48% and let me know how that works.

    I am a fan of the adjustments of kyle, but there are things that neither to me nor me work well, I go more seg, for example, if in the front balance sheet I go with lower values and with regard to the stopped one I prefer that it stops better of behind, with the lowest balance sheet I can attack better the slow curves and to go out with more speed.sorry for my english.

    Cheers for the set ups dude.. am I right in thinking most tracks require the 11 11s; tracks like India, Suzuka?

    A number of tracks need 11-11 wings, because in time trial you have DRS and KERS, therefore you don't need the extra acceleration from a lower wing, that is the only reason why wings can be so high in time trial.

    In race setups, you would probably only find 11-11 wings in tracks like Monaco.

    Sorry Leopard, I only understand English.

    Joss I got what you said, thanks for using my setups, I believe you said that you tend to go for a lower value in the front braking balance, so you can take slower corners easier for quicker acceleration.

    I feel braking balance is purely down to the track, a great example of both extremes are..
    1) Monaco, I have seen 52-56% front brake balance.
    2) Monza, I have seen 48-44% front brake balance.

    The nature of the track and your own driving style is what determines it usually.

    For races then would 6-9s be acceptable?

    Yes Governor, you need lower wings in races because you dont have the DRS for acceleration on every single straight.

    I always used your time trial set up for my qualifying. Im always between 2nd and 6th in qualifying
