    On friday I decided to give this mod a try and set a target of 24.2 in Q1 trim. So after a decent amount of laps, I managed a 24.296 today, which is not a fantastic time, but ok for me.

    I decided to upload my setup, motec data and replay of the lap in the hopes that maybe it'll help some people who are currently lost with setups. It's not a great setup, but I don't think it's too far away from a good one since I have splits for a 24.0 currently and in the past I haven't been very close to the top in Q1 trim. I mostly just focused on eliminating understeer since the rear of the car seems to be relatively stable no matter what wing settings I used.

    I'm not sure how good this setup would be in race trim. The most fuel I ran with was 60L using rad 3 and duct 4 (I'm sure I could use duct 1 or 2 for a 58 lap race) which got me a 25.8.

    Which data plugin do you use for the motec file? I was eager to compare your own output against mine but it seems i2 standard doesn't want to open the ones my plugin makes

    I use this to record: http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/2917-rFactor-Motec-Plugin

    and Motec i2 Pro 1.20.0008 to view.

    I'm using these since the motec version is required to view rF2 telemetry.

    Thanks, got it up and running and already spotted a few big differences which saved me a few tenths. Should hopefully give me some extra guidance correcting some of the (numerous) faults in my driving :laugh:
