Can I share the setup and video on my lap if someone wants? It would be great to get more drivers to fight for a win.
Not sure what you mean? Can you clarify?
Sorry my bad english I can give my car setup what i did to Snetterton and put the video from my fastest lap on youtube, if anyone could get help from them to go faster.
But I don't put them yet if nobody wants them.
I'm not sure a video provides any clues as I've watched hundreds of them and still not got any faster . The guys in them just seem to be doing what I do anyway, but go much quicker
By all means if you want to submit your setup then send me a link to DL it and I'll put in SRO resources for anybody who wants to try it. But even somebody else's setup is not a magic wand. Again I've tried lots in the past and some are just undriveable for me, so it's all about personal skills, eyesight, hardware used, reactions and lots more that make somebody seem to be an "Alien" compared to others.
Yeah it is true that just watching the video and getting the setup you won't get any faster, but if you practice and compare to yourself to faster guys, it will make you faster. And learning new tracks will be faster when you have learned one track well.
I send my setup tomorrow, or day after that. If it feels too oversteering, increase a wing or rear antirollbar.
Ps. I am not the world's best setup maker
My opinion in the matter: An "alien" is fast regardless of their setup. You just need to be able to see those "shortcuts" in the track to find the quickest way around the raceway by any means necessary, it could be about identifying the curbs to be run over, or it could be about ones gas/brake input for the car around the corner or when riding over that particular curb. Once you diagnosed the entry/exit points of the apexes/curbs and the quickest way around the track:
THEN comes the part for setting up the car, you just try and find the best compromise between a lot of settings. Perhaps you would like to stiffen that front ARB to, or perhaps your car is almost bottoming out and its not possible to use the "shortcut" which you have had found and you need to raise the front/back end of the car. Basically what i am trying to say is, a setup isn't a magic wand which makes us go faster, as Ken mentioned, but it is a tool for the driver himself to feel more comfortable with the car in order to enable himself to use such "shortcuts". That is the way the setups were intended to work.
I have tried using other peoples setups but it never worked to be honest, it had become worse in fact, but people still share their setups and there is always someone interested in that, so i am guessing it does help to some degree which i am clearly not aware of... ^^
