    Woupdnt setting min ride heights restrict the amount of suspension travel, so say 18mm at the front with 5mm packer would mean you only have 13mm of suspension travel

    I don’t really have a clue about setups but to me that wouldn’t allow much compliance of the front end reguarding weight transitions.

    And how do you stop them going on the packers in the corners

    Thanks for the reply

    If you can see your ride height not changing on the straight. That means you are on the packer. If you note this ride height and then see if the car is reaching this ride height in the corners, you can know if yo are touching the packers in the corners.

    This might not be all bad though, if you cant feel the car losing grip you shouldnt worry about it.
    You can either raise the ride height or stiffen the springs to stop the car from going on the packer.

    I've done a bit of testing and Medium Downforce is quicker than High Downforce for me around Sochi. I didn't try with Low DF.

    Med DF
    Qual PB 110.691
    5laps (with pitstop) PB 591.186
    50 minutes (with pitstop) PB 3073.296 (80L)

    High DF
    no Q attempt
    5 laps (with pitstop) PB 594.125
    50 minutes (with pitstop) PB 3083.433 (80L)
