@Calvyn White thank you for the setup.

I'll be going in to this week's events without the opportunity to practice so very much appreciated.

I find the KTM easier to drive consistently, but did wonder if the Porsche might have the upper hand on a circuit like Silverstone :thumbsdown:

The Porsche is certainly quicker than the other two on this track but the problem still remains of trying to get it down to 2nd gear. It is a bit of a hit and miss. Get it completely wrong and you're dead. Get it slightly wrong and you've lost time. You have to use 2nd gear 3 times on this layout so there's quite a good chance of getting it wrong at least once every two or three laps, if not less.
You can actually see the odd number in the gear ratio (2nd) of the Porsche by comparing it with the other two. Way out of whack. Basically the problem since the last update is if you're too fast it won't change down and if you're too slow the back end locks up sending you to never never land. :mad::confused::O_o::cry: :roflmao:
Like you say @paulbee058 the KTM is the smoothest for sure, but not the quickest. The Lotus is quicker than the KTM but a little less unstable. But nowhere near the problem of the Porsche which is the quickest by quite a bit, if you can get the timing right with the gearbox "consistently". Which in my opinion is not worth the risk.

Just like the backtrack a little on what I said about the KTM in post #7.
I've done a little more fiddling and squeeze a little bit more speed out of it of course with the extra speed there comes instability. This setup has put the KTM at the top of the leaderboard.
I'm sure if anybody chooses to use it will make your alterations, but be gentle in what you do. A little adjustment makes a lot of difference.
As always if there's any questions don't hesitate to ask in any manner you choose, privately or otherwise.

My contribuition for whoever interested:D my setups for KTM and Lotus (both a tiny below the 1'.09'' in LB...)
Those mates who dont have the time for this maybe can give it a try;) Enjoy!
The best time was w/ KTM but enjoyed the Evora better... The Cayman has a very weird 2nd gear:O_o:
Cheers
