    Want to learn all about setting up your (sim) car for best handling and performance? Look no further, this new academy could be for you!

    What is toe and camber? What difference do hard or soft springs make? Why does my car feel like a boat with no rudder? Why do I do the twist every time I touch the throttle? Does anybody actually know what a differential is and what the hell it does?!

    If you've been asking these kinds of questions then you've come to the right place. Welcome to the RaceDepartment Setup Academy! Here you will learn the answer to the above mysteries and more. Instead of downloading setups from others and hoping they work for you, you will be learning how to make setups for yourself. We will help you to understand your car's behaviour and determine what to tweak and how, in order to bring it more in line with your personal driving style.

    The RD Setup Academy is open to all premium members. The sessions will last 90 minutes and will be run on a monthly basis. Our resident setup guru @Calvyn White will be your host, taking you through the finer points of car setups in a simple and easy to understand manner. Places are limited so be sure to book your spot!

    Note that due to the nature of this event, TeamSpeak is absolutely mandatory!
    The server password will be sent to participants via PM on the day of the event.

    EDIT: Due to the popularity of the academy it will be run every Friday for the next four weeks. After that it will revert to either fortnightly or monthly based on demand. Thanks to everyone for your interest so far! :)

    Yeah, just as I expected from the hints posted the past few days. I guess I will have to wait for another month, hoping I will be settled back in by then. Unless someone makes a recording, perhaps?

    I can certainly make a recording and/or stream the event. Of course you'll miss out on asking questions and testing things, but it could tide you over until you can attend the next one in July. :thumbsup:

    Well, you know me, I ask tons of questions on TS all the time and basically never shut up.

    I'm sure others would welcome some kind of recording as well, if only to review certain parts of the event again, so it would certainly be appreciated, I think. Cheers.

    If I may take a spot please. That would be very useful for me but maybe tough for you: I have no clue where to start setting up a car despite reading as many tutorial or infos I could find...:unsure:

    I'd love to do this but have been out of action for a few weeks for one reason or another!

    However I just wanted to say a huge "thank you" to @Calvyn White for being prepared to give up his time and share his knowledge to help others and to @Ross Garland as well for hosting and supporting the idea.

    What a great community this is!

    Cheers both!

    Steve

    This is going to be one of the best assets at RD, such a great idea!

    Would love a sticky thread in the Paddock with the video for further discussion.

    If there's a chance for a better time for US residents I will be the first in line :)

    I also wish RD would consider expanding the concept totother popular platforms such as rF2, AC(C), PC2 in the future, knowing that each of them has a different modelling that impact car handling and therefore requires a slight different approach, typically with tire pressure, wings and damping.
