    Somehow i loose a lot of time in the last turn nr 13 Arie Luyendijk corner (Audi R8 Get real standard setup, warm tyres). I even turned on the raceline but still, it says green but i have to lift otherwise i'll enter the dirt at the end near the straight due to understeer. I have tried different approaches (slow in fast out), trail braking, even fast in slow out but none helps. Im in the green until the last turn. At start finish i lost about 3 tenth of a second, not able to brake the 42 barrier. Anybody got a magic wand for me?

    Thanks for the tip! But...i have already tried that. My setup for the corner is okay. I hit the previous corner right at the apex so i end up nice on the kerbs. At that point nr. 13 start to bend. To catch the apex later i must be half gas during the first half corner. than full throttle, catching the apex later and still, the ghost cars fly by me like they take the corner full speed. Is that possible with a car that has a good setup?

    What is a good setup in your views Boby?

    I have to lift at the start of that corner as well with most cars but, I am still working to get the setups right.

    IMO, that corner is 90% entry and 10% setup. When you nail the entry then you can throttle it all the way. Get it 0,5 meter late and you are heading towards the grass/barrier.

    I apologize for my bad English. Sometimes its very hard to translate when it comes down to technical details. Right now im driving with the "get real" difficulty but im still using the standard setup. Its possible that the person im challenging via the leaderboard has setup his car so he can be fast in the last turn. I also know that that same setup could be a disadvantage in other sectors (which i have not noticed). I was wrong in phrasing "a good setup". From now on i will hush.
