you r a legend, this has made me like the game 1000 times more now i have a car i can drive, i would have never thougt to lower aero and all the stuff u did to improve stability and grip and speed.Ive done my Sahkir setup based on wait the info says if u change x or x, which is obviously wrong. I just did 2 laps in time trial at Sahkir with lotus and beat my mclaren time of 2:01 by 2sec{amazing] This car is setup perfect for the way i like to drive and u have really brang me out of the dumps about the game.
I will use all your setups from know on so pls keep them coming for all tracks,amazing work,if only every1 used this they would love the game so much more,this is the best driving style

ps:do u use it in career,because im thinking of tyre wear and how u cope with it thanks
{so happy i found this link}

I can't get below 2:04's, I seen to have tons of trouble getting the car to actually slow down, or the car wants to push wide on exit.

hey Ramon!

thats a brilliant setup, I started my career again from scratch with the VIRGIN team, and I just knocked off 2-3 seconds off my lap times from my previous career! brilliant! would be nice if we had all tracks, haha! but I guess you can use the Barhrain setups for most tracks, thats designed similar maybe. :)

Much appreciated!

Guys, please excuse me for offtopic, but could you explain me why do you lower the wings attack angle? Sakhir is inddeed a fast circuit, but it's nowhere near Monza, it has great many of turns. So, why lowering downforce doesn't decrease the speed in turns dramatically, but gains overall speedup? Is it because many of the turns are slow?..
