Hello there,

as i am not new to the game, but new to competitive Online Racing, i would like to know how important the tuning aspect is in general.
I would consider myself a good experienced driver. i have a quite good understanding on racing lines, car phyisics, etc.

But here is the point...
when i compare some laptimes, from tracks i know pretty good, to the top times, there still is about a 1,5 - 3 second gap.
And i really dont know where these guys win the time over me.

I am driving on factory tuning setting.
How much time do you think a good tuning on a track like... let's say lago maggiore or Suzuka.
And more specific, wich aspects of a tuned car can you feel on track? (like more corner-speed or later brake-points)

I hope you understand the message i try to deliver as english is not my native language.

Maybe i should say that by "tuned", i note referring to more power / less weight.
I guess "setup" would be the correct term ?! The settings you can change while BoP=enabled

but anyway... no one was talking about brake markers.... so yeah... thax mate

All is equal for everyone... you can only change brake bias and driving assistance ( tc)... basically on Sport Mode
