Thanks Risto for it. Good job.

I want to add some tips&tricks working with this mod. :laugh:

1. Select only GATED SHIFTER in upgrades. Even if you have sequential or paddles. It will give almost 1 s. faster time due to lesser shift lag.

2. There is one setup setting which I use as default for all cars. It can be enough at least to be on podium. I'm not the fastest guy but I know it works.

GENERAL
- radiator - it can be set at 2 with Cosworth engines, the safest mode is 3, but Renaults and BT48 can have 4 or more according to greater engine overheating
- engine brake map - 1
- wing balance - start to keep the car with 1/1 downforce because the lower drag is the key; if the car is unstable then put more rear downforce (1/4, 1/6); if it's not enough try bigger values overall (2/8, 4/10, 5/12, 10/20), but remember - you will lose the speed
- steering lock/wheel angle - 18/300
- brake bias - at driver's discretion - I'm using mostly 57:43
- brake duct size - it must be checked - usually 2 or 3, but 1 can be set too
- brake pressure - at driver's discretion - mine is usually 90%
- differential power/coast/preload - 0/20/1 on faster tracks, 0/40/1 on slower curvy tracks (Monaco, Jarama); don't ask why - just set it like this

SUSPENSION
- tire pressure - always 125/115 (front/rear)
- spring rate - 110-140 front, 110-140 rear; the range depends on the car
- dampers bump/rebound - always 1/1 (front/rear)
- packers - 0.0 (front/rear)
- ride height - 2.0 (front), 3.0-3.8 (rear)
- camber - max minus (front/rear)
- anti-roll bar - 60/30 as default, but it can be changed at will

ADVANCED
- I'm using default settings - can anybody help me?

Try to not overheat turbo engines at start by higher revving (Renaults, Brabham BT48, Alfa). Although radiator is set at 4 it can damage the engine and finish the race. When you reach the grid it's safe to turn off the engine, which automatically starts when the red lights are on (but check it out please!).

Good tips and all your setups are great

for advanced settings first about the toe:
in fast tracks i usually run 0 toe in front and minimal at rear because the bigger the toe difference from 0 the more drag it produces, but it can sometimes give great grip in tricky courses

for caster i pick according to the car: for example the ferrari T4 with understeering frame and low torque engine it is good to have big numbers as it helps turning in, but smaller numbers if you have a bad-handling V8
also its good to have smaller caster with low downforce and more with high downforce, as the sideeffect of the turn-in is less stability in a straight line, but if you have high downforce then you are very stable going in a straight line anyway

the 2 brake options im not sure about, probably the smaller one has less power but makes less heat, but that isnt a problem
