Hi guys,

How about posting the setup(s) that you used to drive the laptimes in the Track Promo here in this thread? It might help some people that are not so quick (or don't have a lot of time available) to master a new track and find a good setup to be competitive. Or is the competition so fierce nowadays that setups are as secret as the latest diffuser trick in current F1 racing?  ;)

Cheers,
Ed

That would be good, still trying to figure how to set up the cars myself. I get so far and seem to hit a wall. I've only really raced on the original tracks, so I'm learning each track as we go on. Looking forward to driving Birmingham, I've videos of Sierra Cosworths round there and been three times so I know the track and which way it goes.I've that much info on how to set up a car I get lost.

There seems to be a distinct lack of GT setups out there so this could be good for getting some on the forum

I actually installed GT and had a quick go with it, only to be surprised by the slow gear changes (is that supposed to take sooooo looooong, or is it an issue with the controller that I use (an iPhone with MungoGamer on it :;) ? )

Post setups please !!!

I've been using default settings and driving like I would on the road. It seems that with a bit of oversteer and letting the cars drift round corners times seem to be a lot faster from lots of the replays I've watched over the years.
