    Well I am way behind everyone this week. I might have to try playing with the tune a bit. On the last tight turn before the bridge I get the front end shaking back and forth. I know this can't be good for traction. I tried softening the springs and dampers a bit on the front but its still there, maybe not quite as strong. I am going to try softening it up some more, but if anyone has any suggestions, let me know. I also have serious understeer, which I assume everyone has to deal with. The only wheelspin I get is in first gear, and only when I am not careful with the throttle. Here's my times so far, hopefully I can knock a few more 10ths off.

    t1: 37.056
    t2: 1'04.129

    Yep, same here.:tup:

    Improved my lap time by a considerable margin but with slower splits. So that means there is still more left.

    Board updated but most of the work was done by Michael: thanks for that :tup:

    Ren-Tec introduces the usage of the 'tuning' column for which it was actually meant: what tuning do you use for your race? I'd like to encourage all to post who's tune you use and I/we'll integrate that into Luxy. Thanks!

    New splits for me, and dropped nearly 3 tenths off my overall lap too, so sector 3 was a lot faster than before.:)

    T1: '36.064
    T2: 1'02.952


    I realised if I put the convertible top up I'd get better aerodynamics hence the increase in speed.:sly:

    The tune I'm actually using is the TLD tune. Could you change that on the leaderboard for me. Thanks.:tup: Wrote the wrong thing earlier, sorry.

    First go at this combo. If I didn't have to keep my foot on the pedal or hold the wheel, I'd get up and stretch every lap. HAHAHA, this thing is slow up the hill ...eh!!!!

    Tuned by zed300 as always.
    36.202
    1.03.165

    Being the car that it is, thousandths will decide the final placings.:D

    I think I'll submit now, even if I do manage to drop my time, it'd only be like 5 hundredths of a second or something. If I'm in 5th and only one tenth behind 1st I can live with that.;)

    That's very fast time between T1 and T2. Mind sharing your settings?

    I'm not sure what tune your using but it sounds like a front toe issue.
    I have switched to TLD's suspension and have kept the DC gearing.
    You should try it and see what you think.

    My new splits from an after dinner session.

    That's what I'm doing, using TLD suspension and DC gearing. It works really well.

    No, it's a glitch or mis-post of the list, look closely and you'll see the actual times of every driver is not as listed, they're listed by division. It happened yesterday too but got fixed not long after.....

    Usually the leaderboard is set to the T2 tab at the top, but i think bigracer(or whoever updates it) can set witch tab is default whenever they update it, as in bigracer's post he was pointing out the .001 difference between the top two in D1 under the DIV tab. anyone can click on those tabs at the top to sort the leaderboard by T1, T2, DIV etc.
