    Any advice about setup changes
    I have to take in consideration
    when having lots of extra ballast
    cause of the weightpenaltysystem?

    More ballast will increase your tyrewear so i would make changes to reduce tyrewear:
    - Less camber
    - Less toe in/out
    - Lower tyre pressure
    - Softer damping

    Just a few idea's, never really run with ballast :)

    much appreciated Bram!

    One other question;

    in the racing leagues,
    for example the RHDGP you're driving in:
    don't they use weight-penalties?

    i guess that was a typo and you ment RDHGP? and no they don`t use weight penalties, in fact i don`t think they use any in all the RD leagues :)
