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 :)
