I've always wanted to try a Championship without touching the default setup but use it. Nothing can be changed at all. As a matter of fact don't go into the setup menu at all. That will mean you'll have to qualify with full tanks. Since racing GP races it's no handicap for the race. So, i'll do a Championship using long race distance. That way i'll always have way too much fuel for qualifying and the race. The default setups are a bit strange and I don't think one setting is something i'd normally use.
I'll have to do this with the Papy 67 F1 cars because the Historical V2 setups aren't that bad. Not good but not bad. The AI will be untouched and set at 1.0.
This is kind of what someone new to GPL would be faced with. My goal will be a top 10 finish for the Championship. I'm not sure how hard that will be. Hopefully, I can do it without cussing at the setup. That could be the hardest part.

For your experiment I would think it "legal" to tweak controller settings and linearity to match your wheel. Let us know how it goes.

I'm using the 1.08 installer, so the patches are up to date. One thingI did change is I took the AI files from the CD. So, the line up is a little different. The same thing for the AI performance file. It's from the CD. Just in case the installer has modified the AI.

I set my wheel for only 1/2 turn for lock to lock. Same as a kart. I can't stand slow steering. My wheel has 900 degrees but I only use 1/2 turn.

it was the rule to use default (incl full fuel!) and no one complained.
we all used default. didn't like it? don't race with that league - but no one left

I think trying to win a Championship in the BRM with my setups would be more fun. I may try that.

Don't blame you for abandoning the project though, fun is the reason we play any game/sim. And GPL is difficult enough as it is.
