    I cannot believe that no-one has a setup for Valencia?
    I am at this track for the 2nd time but this is the first time I have had light rain, but its more than light rain. looks heavy either way I set my car for a wet setup and it seems to be having trouble sticking to the track, I have to take it so careful.
    I have had inters on but no good, I put full wets on and that is like skating on ice.

    Need a good setup plz.

    OK after hours of practice, I have a setup that works....

    Circuit: Valencia
    Condition: WET

    Aero:
    Front Wing Angle: 11
    Rear Wing Angle:11

    Breaking:
    Balance: F47% - R53%
    Pressure: High
    Break Size: Small

    Balance:
    Ballast Distribution: F50% - R50%
    Front Anti-Roll Bar: 3
    Rear Anti-Roll Bar: 10

    Suspension:
    Front Ride Height: 2
    Rear Ride Hight: 1
    Front Spring Stiffness: 7
    Rear Spring Stiffness: 4

    Gearbox:
    I turned all gears back to the left 1 through 7....top speed was about 190MPH

    Engine:
    Throttle Map: Fast
    Fuel: N/A

    Alignment:
    Camber Front: 3.20
    Camber Rear: 1.10
    Toe Front: 10
    Toe Rear: 32

    I led from pole till lap 16 when a HRT got in the way under breaking and cost me a nose....I pitted new nose and wheels. Came out in 4th, continued until rain eased right off, Webber, Vettle and some others pitted for Options but I stayed out for 3 more laps until I was losing some time to them then pitted for Options came out in 3rd then pushed the car as hard as I could taking fastest lap @ 1:35.00 and the win. I know this is slow but remember the car is set-up for Wet.

    I hope this set-up helps you all, Its twitchy so be careful but great fun when it slides.
