Ariff Roose

Brilliant setup will do here. I raised the packers a little, lowered the gear ratios a knob, clicked a few times on the anti-roll bars and its quite good.

But I need more turn in!!!! ...zzz

And I wish I could mess around with the torque band. Just like GT4! So then I could make the highest torque hang around from 6500 - 8300rpm!!

AND! The chicane forces me wide every time I meet it. Pisses me off so bad.:hammer:

EDIT:
Just did a 1:19.107.
Found a secret that could improve my timing by over a second.
Sector 1 and sector 2 about -1.500 ahead of my 1:19 and i took it to the chicane and it forced me wide. GOSH I HATE IT

Ariff - you tried increasing the steering lock? That usually helps with tighter turns.
hmmmm... never thought of that. Thanks! just downloaded Michel's setup and hot lap. Im going to see how he cracks the 1:18 barrier and meddle with his setup :)

Edit

I'm using my own setup instead. I increased the springs (both front and back) to about 200-250 and increased the steering locks to about 20.5 it seems i get more turn in and better thru the corner. But over here itss still 11:39AM so I'll wait until my body and reactions warm first :)
