Good to see you have done a set up for this track Bram, always like how the car feels with your set up. I've not tried this one yet but will do soon. Have you got a set up for dry track or keep this one and just change a couple of things ????

Great setup, only slight changes by me, the Lotus struggles to find speed (and I'm just not all that great at racing), so I always lower the gearbox settings a few notches, which helps me gain a little more speed coming out of the bends, and keeps the other cars off my tail.
Just wish I could find a good setup for changeable weather conditions.
Have restarted the current race twice just to make sure, I get rain around lap 8. (20% race, just for a quick blast)
If I start on options and my fastest dry setup, rear tires will go orange by lap 3, primes last me ages, but quickly lose grip as soon as it starts spitting, but then it's too dry for inters until lap 9, at which point, primes are cold and slippery, and I'm 24th, and way behind.
If I start on options with my fastest wet setup, tires again go orange around lap 3/4, and if I switch to inters, it's way too early, they wear in no time (obviously, although I didn't think about that earlier), and have to change tires again on about lap 8, at which point, I am again last and way behind. *Sigh*

Well, thanks for the setup, think I'll go back to doing some work and try it again later.
Cheers

Is it true that this race track even harder on wet surfaces with a Lotus car? I'm not sure I want to try this time trial or not.

I'm HRT and this setup makes my car skidding when braking and not rotating when extreme rainfall.

I mean, first setup

Setup made this week for Time Trials competition lots of laps as usual can probably hit a 1:41.000 with a perfect lap, so easy to mess up any one of the 23 corners its ridiculous, if you do try this setup bare with it, it will take alot of invalidated laps if your like me and push as hard as possible from the word go instead of building up confidence.

Happy Hunting!!

This is a great set up for the dry too. I'm a total noob at this game, still in my first season, using PS3 controller, and managed 1:50.2. The real pain is slowing the car down enough to get round that nasty chicane at turn 10. Always seem to hit the wall at the far side of it, coming out.

Time was a 1:57.303 in what looked like a messy total downpour that I could barley manage to see thru. This setup is probably not the fastest and is a tweak from Brams set up but with more grip to get your car to turn in faster.

This lap put me on pole by over 2.855 seconds on professional level with driving aids of ABS+TCS. I am currently playing career mode with the Virgin car in season 1. This car has lots of hop ups at this point so that could contribute to the grip.

Good luck and hope this contributes.
