    Does anyone have a decent setup for this car? Default feels very unstable and I don't know if I have enough time till Wednesday to make a good setup.

    I do not know if it's right I put harder springs and I get better and a little more wings.
    in any case I think i have to adapt a bit to the car is true when brakes especially the back tends to pass you in front but changing a bit the way to brake and down gear I found this better but it happens only in the evenings that are fit :D
    28/30 lit. for race
    if someone is crazy set up is here:rolleyes:

    I will try to post a setup tomorrow but all I can say is that car is very unstable even with a lot of rear wing. Maybe the solution is to force understeer by having a hard front suspension :unsure:

    Edit: Setup uploaded. The car is more manageable now :D

    Something is so strange about this car... isnt this supposed to be FWD?
    Why does it spin around tank slap style when I leave the pit box with a little too much throttle? :ninja:

    No, the car is RWD and has a 400 HP Nissan V6 engine. So the best is to be careful with the gas :whistling:

    Ah this explains a lot :D
    I tried to find infos out about this car and everywhere I looked it said its FWD.
    What on the other hand does feel like FWD, is sometimes the FFB would kind of go away in slow corners with a lot of throttle applied as if the grip was gone due to wheelspinning.
    But thanks for the info, this will help me a lot... The laps I did I tried to drive it like a FWD car and it just did not really feel right :rolleyes:

    That was good fun yesterday :)

    It is worth considering to make a season with a non formula car :whistling:
    Sry David for pushing you over the finish line, I tought race is over, but we had our special battle anyway :whistling:
    Thx Mario for the setup, that made the car fun to drive :thumbsup:

    yup i enjoyed it alot, the cars were pretty good, at first i couldnt get used to them at all but i was setting pb's in the races so started liking them, and our little duel in the 2nd race was fun martin :D and no probs about the end i actually thought it was the end too so no harm done.

    regards your thoughts on having a non formula car for a season NO!!! back to open wheelers for the season which will start getting organised this weekend :)

    thanks for turning up guys, wouldve been nice to have more numbers but still fun all the same :)

    Yeah it was great fun. I haven't raced online much lately, so every little battle on track gets me excited :geek: And the low numbers didn't affect the race as much as I thought it would as it was pretty close racing.
