    Sounds about right. Lowering the splitter and wing a click will get that mph and more without changing final drive, and with p2p, well into 190's. Just sayin:thumbsup:

    edit: That's 190+ with a taller final drive

    Nice Steve! I tuned in just when the wind ripped off the rear wing on a historic F1 car!

    This is going to be fun. These cars are a bit wild in the way I like it

    I never thought I'd be saying these words, because I find the default setups in R3E to be almost universally set to understeer a bit, but this car wants to oversteer on me quite a bit. I had a bit of success tweaking the setup to let me get the power down a bit harder/sooner.

    I wish I knew about this during the lead up to the Multiclass race at Road America. The lap around actually pointed out some issues I have with the course. Thank You Steve!

    Dunno to be honest. In 2016 P2P gave an extra 20 hp. I guess that would jibe with your numbers.

    I am gonna suck Tuesday. I cannot get as fast as I want and I know my lap times are not near what I have seen on the leaderboard times. For some reason I do not like this car. When I got tired of trying to set up the car with poor results I did the 90's F1 competition, got in the V10 and threw that car around Spa like no one's business. I just set times with default and know I could have gotten much faster with more laps.

    This indy car? I see middle of the pack for me if I am lucky. Hope there are a bunch around me to race with.

    By the looks of the leaderboard I'd say Dan may be the lonely one with no one to race with:(

    Hahaha you guys are too much. It might not look like it, but I struggled a lot before I started chiseling away at the leaderboard. Like I said before... I'm gonna preach it again. Low downforce is key. There's no way I could have done those times with stock wing. I figured it out when I was ghosting the #1 guy on the board, and as soon as I crossed the start line, he would come right past me. I knew it wasn't because he was getting a better run out of the last corner of the S's (very important btw). So for Shits and Giggles I lowered the wings way down, further than I thought was realistic. Well what do you know, I was faster! I did seriously do a lot of tinkering with setup to get some grip back in it. Unbelievably I ended up with a faster car that also handled better!? For some reason, having a lower wing makes it more drive able…. less snappy I suppose.

    Anyway..... Ya'll wanna see it??

    This nets me 188 at the end of the straight. That's without a draft or p2p. In the race I'd consider lowering 6th gear a tick. That way when you p2p you will be up in the 190's.:D

    Here's another quick one. This one is faster through the road course

    I got to try those. I also figured out my FOV issue. It took some adjusting the camera, but I left the FOV multiplier at 0.5x. What can I say, I like that setting.

    That gave me a little more connection with the car and I am no longer guessing about where the car is on the track. Now to take Dan's setups out for a spin... Probably a literal spin.:roflmao:

    Tires. Who is getting along with the Black tires? The reds are softer than kneaded erasers. One lap and I had the reds at 97% Holy Cheese Balls, Batman! The black tires are tougher, but they don't have the same amount of grip. If we were running an Oval, I'd go with the Black tires, but in a road course, so far I feel better with the Reds.

    A word to the wise: There is no 'Launch control' since indy car uses a rolling start. Make certain to practice starts!! If you leave your first gear short and try to come out of the hole quickly you will be facing the wrong way very fast:notworthy: It takes some pretty good clutch control (don't know what it is like with automatic clutch) to get a fast start without taking out half the start grid:thumbsdown: My first gear is set around 12.375
