Setups are a personal thing, but have attached my five M9A WR setups/replays for what it's worth. It's a slower chassis with which there hasn't been driven a lot. (otherwise I wouldn't have WR's! ) Adjust diff, brakebias and steering lock to your own preference/diving style.

The fast 67 season drivers such as Huttu, Wilke, etc were willing to give both their set ups and replays, just thought it would something the 69 md extra drivers should consider.
Thanks a lot for yours.

Pete is right too. The guys that do these wr's could get pretty close with almost any setup and they are usually pretty similar ie stiff and oversteery. You'll find that most of these guys have a set formula to their setups too. ie they don't change much from track to track. Just gear ratios cambers and tweak the spring rates according to the nature of the track. You could try downloading some setups for the original 69s (eg Steve's) as a starting point and try to formulate a base setup you're happy with.

Some of the better drivers offered two different set ups one more radical than the other i.e. Huttu. The more radical ones are way to difficult to drive for my liking.
I agree that the default set ups might be a good starting point, but really need to be tweaked to get close to a reasonable fast time.
All I'm saying is that more GPL(67) drivers no matter how personal, were willing to give up there set ups.
Thanks for all the 69modx racers like Steve and Robert for giving theirs.

right now I'm mostly doing 67, 65 and F2. Back in 2006 I did try 69 for a while, and lately one week 69X, I like it, but too busy. Maybe now and then 69X in the near future, but when I have new setups for other tracks I'd be glad to share them.
Found a few more setups for McLaren M9A for Monza and Silverstone and Lotus 63 for Monza. Nothing special I think, not too much testing, but maybe it helps.

You'll be amazed how fast you can go with Greger's easy GH1 setups.
One more comment to everybody. Taking an alien setup an d toning it down is not the best way to go. The setup was built to work as is, and is balanced. If you take it, and change to an easier to drive diff. You've messed up the balance, and it probably won't work as good as a setup built from scratch with the milder diff. The same thing applies to moving the brake balance forward. It's better to start with the BB and diff setting you want, and build the setup around that.

I have used Greger's GH1 and some of his GH2 set ups and agree that you can get some really good times using them. FK's Ulee and Roland's set ups seem to work well with my driving style as well.
Well thanks for all the input!
Back to racing.
