i'm slow. i see some of you guys saying you're getting podiums in expert and it's just mind boggling. unfortunately, using quick setups, all i can do is being 1.5 to 2 seconds slower than my team mate professional ai in melbourne (assists off at least). but intermediate is far too easy, too big of a leap. and i can't push any harder than high 29's and low 30's. shame on me. so i see all these posts whining about the spring stiffness setup bug, which is a huge bug indeed, probably the worst on this game (essentially, you can gain up to 5 seconds running 11/11 stiffness) and something clicked. what if i try slightly stiffer springs until i'm on pace with the ai? and that's it. i changed my springs from the default 6/6 to 8/8 and now i'm running consistent mid to high 28's, right on pace with rubens. don't patch this, codemasters. this is not a bug, it's a feature.
