Way outside my time zone but these little cars are so fun to drive. I did a FULL official race today with qualifying and all. The feel faster than GTR-3 cars to me for some reason. I followed the British GT4 formula but obviously had to adjust for Race Rooms configs.

KTM X-BOW GT4
60mins Free Practice 1
10mins GT4 Pro Qualifying
60min Race 1

Loads of fun, enjoy guys!

Here is a set up for the Lotus I've been working on. And if I have any more spare time I work on it some more. So that may be an update to the set-up.

Also sorry for the late posting of the Audi GT3 I thought I posted it. And only realised I didn't when I asked if anybody was using it. I had no response so I checked and no it wasn't there. So I asked if anybody needing any help. And @paulbee058 and I with @Caramidaru Andrei Bogdan drop down to another channel on TS to share my setup. But I feel I left it too late to benefit from it. It was very late into the practice session. Not enough time to make any alterations if needed or to practice. So sorry about that it probably didn't do you any good.
So I'm posting the Lotus setup that I have so far. Earlier enough to get used to it and make any alterations that you deem necessary to suit your style.

Here is a setup for the KTM. I've done a little bit more work on.
I think all 3 cars are quite equal but I think the Porsche is more suited to this track. Its easier to get the time without fine tuning the setup so much. I also think the Lotus and the KTM do need to be pushed harder and tuned a little bit finer.
Like the Lotus if I have the time in making any improvements I will update the posted setups.

For me what ever you do here the Lotus and Porsche understeer like pigs, and the KTM is abit of the pace.

Just been messing around with the Porsche. And I'm not liking it as much as the other two. Bad understeer and is terrible going into corners hard. It just doesn't like going into second gear you either get a bleep or the back wheels lock up causing you to spin. But my brain is telling me it should be able to go into the corner without these problems.It does when you're take it easy and be careful. Yeah I know I should be doing that anyway but I don't think as much as you have to.
Made a few adjustments and I know it's faster from my first set up I just can't seem to get a clean lap in. But it does have 2 or 3 maybe 4 tenths in it. In better hands and mine.
Not sure if I'm going to use this car or not. I do think is the fastest of the three at this track but I don't like the way it drives.
I will post my first and second setup.

I've been driving the Porsche in a league and it seems the latest update has definitely changed the handling characteristics. They seem to have fixed the issue were changing from 2 > 3 was causing the rear wheels to loose traction, but they also seem to have changed the downshift pprotection. Feels like you can now shift from 3 > 2 earlier which causes the rears to lock, so you have to shift down much later than it feels like you should.

That's funny you should say that I was thinking about the exactly the same thing when I was writing my earlier post.
And I think you're right I think they have made some changes and it's probably not just the Porsche it's probably the KTM and Lotus as well. Oh double dear. So if that's the case which I do believe it is I hope they reset the leaderboard because to be quite honest I don't think those times are going to be achieved any longer. Then again it might be ok.

Just read the the update details or lack of and it quotes about the GT4 as follows.

GTR4 class : Made AI quicker, reduced Downshift Prevention intervention, tweaked gearshifts, automatic gearbox behavior improvement. Tweaks to default setup of the Lotus, increased KTM drag a bit.

In a earlier post I mentioned I thought the Porsche was the fastest of the three. I no longer believe this to be the case. As the tweak they have made, which I regard as mere alteration. As the word tweak suggest improvement which I don't believe it is. I'm talking about getting down to 2nd gear which I believe in my hands is out of sync. If that makes any sense. Like @suspectmonkey stated in about going from 2nd to 3rd gear was a problem and I must admit I was not aware of it but it is a bit easier that I have noticed. But as for going from 3rd to 2nd is now extremely noticeable. And not in a good way.IMO.

I managed to squeeze a little more out of it with my second set up previously posted. But nowhere near as much as I expected. And I feel in my hands the downshift which I will call an issue as I find it very random and inconsistent. I'm sure in the right hands it will be fine. For me when my mind and my logic is telling me something different I see no point fighting with the car.

I have managed to get the KTM faster then I can get the Porsche despite the adding of drag whatever that means and why.
