Thank you Wally, very welcome addition. ;) 8)

Thanks Dave. I'll check it out. Expect my lap times to fall off a cliff.
I think the most valuable bit is the wing's balance (CoP) percentage.
With some cars, one 'click' can be 20% on one end and only 5% on the other.
Get the CoP right, you don't over-compensate with the suspension and excessively wear the tyres on one axle, as well as getting a better balanced car in both high and low speed corners.
The rest can be closely judged by feel (by others I believe, but I like confirmation).
My laptime improves more through confidence of consistency more than a gain in grip itself, but it can't hurt to know the car better. ;)

I don't think you're talking to me there, Phil. :-\
Who do you think he's talking to Wally? ???

Yes, with more even tyre wear to boot. ;)

You need to enable Dev_Apps.
This is located in your main install: (steam crap)/assettocorsa/system/cfg/assetto_corsa.ini
Once you do this, you'll have access to the Wings app, which shows total d/f for each element, d/f & drag coefficients as well as CoP % (front) (I call this the wind tunnel).
You'll also have access to the Car Engineer app, which gives damper ratios as well as suspension frequencies (shaker rig).
I use Car Physics app to get the weight distribution which locates the CoP (just rearwards of this point).

Enjoy the world of numbers. 8)

Did some aero mapping in the E21 and managed to get 40% front CoP, even without a front wing. 8)
And that allowed me to get the spring frequencies back to a more traditional delta. ;D
Setup posted on sTracker. ;)

Whatever his reasons for leaving must have been compelling, to walk away from a Newey car ???

Yeah, the Estonia isn't a bad car, just a heavy one. 8)

Boring old, gutless, 1300cc (the plain one). ;D

The JPS Estonia, the 21 I think, I'll confirm. ;)

I know, yet still I have all of them. :o

I wouldn't say perfect, unless yours has a 5th gear.
A track with a slightly shorter straight would be perfect. ;)

Not my timing, 'flu recovery sleep. :(

Not going to make it tonight. :'(
I desperately need recovery sleep.
