I am not big into setups and not particularly great with small details but here is what I have for this kart and track.

270 wheel rotation 18 degrees lock
92% brakes
50 fov
shortest gearing
16 laps fuel
15.7 psi front tires
rear stock psi

I normally just do the fuel and gearing, but I did feel like I got a little more front end grip with lowering the front tire pressure. I only tried 15.7 though, and did not try anything else besides that and stock (16.0 I believe). Based on the rear right tire not getting as much heat or pressure and the rear left I think you could possible increase that tire pressure a little and that may work well, but I wasn't sure and didn't touch it. The temperatures were fairly even across the inside, middle, and outside of that tire though, so maybe its best not to touch it? Anyone here pretty good with reading pressure, heat, and camber for the tires?

To be honest, when it comes to Karts I sort of just adjust the lock and jump in without bothering with the setups. Especially with rental karts. Perhaps I should start (indeed, I've been thinking of learning how to do setups a long time now). I usually run karts with 180 rotation and 16 lock as suggested by Reiza. Would be interested in seeing what people say about your questions, Ryan.

I have always liked the idea of knowing more about setups and I'm guessing what could be learned with karts could pass on to cars. I am curious to see what others will say as well.

That and I'm confident the gearing and fuel are at the best settings for this track so I wanted to share those with others.

Thanks for the tag @Slalom823 but I have permanently retired from racing karts ever since I unceremoniously got lapped ten times in a ten minute race. In the event of a dearth in sign ups I would consider driving around in them to provide a cheap laugh to all but being as how there are quite a few drivers my presence would be a public nuisance. So in the interest of the community at large I have to humbly refuse your kind invitation to partake in today's event.
Yours truly,
Sri Sri

Looks like version 1.30 just came out! @Nox should we all update or hold off until after? I assume update but wanted to ask.
