Can somebody explain how Boost mapping work?
What is better? Rad 4 with boost 3 or Rad 3 with boost 2?
And what is temporary boost?

Some questions. But i want to understand how it works. :)

Boost hasnt much to do with the radiator i am affraid. Boost is more like a turbo kind of thing. The higher you set it the more power your car gets:
- allows your engine to over rev
- uses more fuel
- damages the engine health

With the radiator you allow your engine to suck more or less air, which influences the temperature of your water and oil.

What was said above ^^^

The boost can wear the engine out allot in the race though even if your temps are good, so becarefull.

Temporary boost is like a boost button in champ cars, or like kers if it was created well enough :p

What is better? All depends on the physics in each mod.

You can assign boost to certain buttons. Decrease & Increase, from 1-* . It's better that way in F1 as you can go from 1 boost to 6 or whatever without much problem depending on the situation in a race.

Yeah i already have that. So temporary boost is the same if you just set your boost to 3 with increase in the race?

I noticed in running in the LMS Race last night at Fuji, i left my Boost Mapping on 5, so it drank alot of fuel and i only got 50 mins to a fuel tank, where as the others where getting an hour.
