How to prevent unbalaced tyre wearing ?


HI~ all of RD members:redface:

My club starts the first Round of GT-Sports at British GP tomorrow.
It will be an 1 hour single-race.

Finally i have chosen Seat Toledo GT, because too many entries for M3 and Vette.
anyway, i had 1 hrs race by myself at Silverstome...there's some difficulites.

First of all, Front left and Right rear tyres wear out severely,
Front left wear out more than 12% compare to Front Right
and Rear Right more than 8% compare to Rear left during 18 laps before pit in.

How to prevent this unbalanced tyre wearing by adjust setup?
Do i need to adjust the value of (Toe in / Trye pressure / Camber)?
then how to do it ?

Thanks ahead.

I think its normally that your tires on the left side have a hard time during the race as the track is mostly clockwise putting more weight of the car on your left side of your car. GT's tend to wear out around 45 minutes if I am correct. Maybe a quick pitstop half way?
and you cant do nothing against it, in RL you would drive different ridehighs i.e left front higher as right front but ingame it has no affects
so yea as bram sayed its normaly and you have to life with it

A lot of tyre wear can be put down to locking the wheels while braking so shift your brake bias back or forward until the get a more even tyre wear


Thanks for answer.
its normaly and you have to life with it
...If i have a chance to drive GT car in my life, it will be the best day of my life:redface:

However, I heard that Seat Toledo GT is an BI-turbo car...but,
I can't find the turn-on switch of turbo-charger by myself,:frown:

Actually, i found that this car is little bit slow, compare to others...
How can i drive it more fast with turbo?
There's no turbo modelling in the RACE series. Turbo cars are just simulated with an extra power boost some way through the rev range, as far as I know.
if it is Sylverstone that you are racing, then the track itself is a big tire eater.
the best tip for trying to reduce that tire wear (or make it a bit unbalanced) is lowering the spring of the tire that gets the most tirewear. Also with that needs at least 10 to 20 min of testing to find the right balance of camber and tire pressure.
