What's wrong with turn 14 in India?

    Here's a circuit map from Buddh International Circuit in India.
    I've found a huge problem there in turn 14, no matter what i do, always spin of the track at that point. This turn should be taken in 5th gear but in order to do that you slightly have to touch the kerbs on the inside of the turn. And there's my problem, as soon as i even touch the kerbs i spin. Normally you would say the ride height is to low, but i can drive the kerbs anywhere else on this track (including the 2 fast chicanes turn 6&7, and 8&9).
    My first question is, is anyone else facing this problem?
    What can i do to prevent me from spinning there?

  2. I just avoid the kerbs and use 4th gear.
    You could try higher ride height but I doubt you'll want to use anything >3 front.
    Also you could try setting the car up for a racing line that avoids the kerbs.

    Can't do anything about it, there's just a big bump there.
  3. Yup, it's really annoying + in real life, there isn't such a bump.

    I've watch the Indian GP and i don't see a bump

    Yeah, you really have to go wide left after 13, so that you can take 14 without hitting the inner kerb.

    I've just got to touch it, and my back end steps out, usually I can save it, and don't actually spin, but it is annoying :)

  5. You spin because right rear wheel is on dirty track and as soon you hit inside kerb with front wheel rear axle slides, somehow Codies think racing line is too much "around" T14. Didn't bother me too much, I even think it's pretty cute feature of this track. Just letting wheel to go to the left after bouncing on kerb is enough to save car from spin.

  6. You just need to lift off the accelerator slightly to prevent wheel spin as you go over the curb.
  7. Thanks guys, this really helps a lot.:)

    I found stepping off the throttle for a split second is helping a lot, that way the rear shouldn't step out. :)

  9. I just increased my ride height to 6&7 and go straight over in 5th. No lift on throttle no staying wide @ apex just straight over the big lump;)

    ...... with no loss of down-force elsewhere on the track?
  11. Of course i loose downforce at other parts of the curcuit but thats what setups are about, Compromise.

    Well... yes that's true. My only concern would be compromising all the other turns where the low ride hight helps, just so you can attack this one turn.

    That's not a criticism, just a question on whether the compromise is worth it. However that's a personal choice I suppose, and down to your own driving style.
  13. codemasters cant build tracks. i will never drive india gp anymore because of this. and look at the austin gp. omg....
  14. Burp the throttle a small amount and straighten your wheel for a split second when you hit the curb. Do both at the speed you blink your eye, well, as fast as you're able to without losing momentum coming out of the corner :)
  15. No offence taken bro... Just the higher ride height lets me attack alittle more without the need to avoid the kerb in racing conditions. Its all down to personal choice imo but always good to hear anothers opinion.
