    **Time Trial Setup** - Full Traction, ABS Brakes, Auto Gears, Xbox Controller (PC)

    Again using Preset 4 and tweaking it helped me into the low 1:37s. It's another circuit where track limits is your worst enemy, giving less room for error. I got 1:37:3s multiple times with slight cuts (DQ) til finally getting one. I spent over 30 laps on this, but after seeing I'm 22nd figured it was enough.

    Watch out for the curb directly next to the Start/Finish line as going over it will either a) invalidate your current and next lap, or b) slow you down too much to start the next lap. It's ok to ride the curb on the left side "before" turning into start/end a lap, you can get a better line that way. 1:36 is possible.

    Hey racing mates, it's me again, continuing my Haas series here for the whole season and all tracks. Race 4 is in Sochi. I never raced on this circuit before and I must say, I really enjoyed the track design. The first and second sector are pretty fast and the third is more technical where balance of the car is crucial, especially in slower sections. The total difference to China is tyre wear here, tyres are wearing really slow and you can push a lot of laps.

    Again, I post the setup after I did the race, so I added lap data screenshots from the race for you. You can see that we started on Inters and afterwards my engineer pulled out a 2 stop strategy with supersofts. On lap 25 Safety car deployed therefore a couple of slow laps. At the end rain set in again, back to Inters and I managed to finish 3rd due to problems on both Mercedes :)

    Hope this setup works nice for you and as always, I would like to here from you guys. Cheers!

    Notes

    Now it´s time for Russia, but i thought i should try it with the slowest car ;)
    My target was to get into the 39´s and wow after just a couple of laps i did it :D
    The setup is very stable on the rear but hasn´t as much understeer as the base setup

    Give it a try and let me know what you think :D


    Have fun!

  8. Nice Setup, do an 1:39.995 in Career with super soft with my McLaren Honda. Using wheel Difficulty Hard
     
  9. Just wanted to say I'm using your settings with my Williams on 50% career and I'm amazed at how well the car drives. I'm using the Xbox One controller on PC and your settings allow me to really get 100% out of it, especially the "turning into the corner" part is such a joy with those settings. I always struggled with too much understeer on corner entry. Not anymore.
