I thought I'd post this link to a page that can be helpful with car set-ups, some people saying they can't find a good set-up and all. I'm too lazy myself, most of the time, to put in the laps and too impatient to make one change at a time and test. It can be helpful anyways http://www.racingonthecheap.com/recommended-reading/carroll-smiths-handling-guide/
The obvious though, disregard the broken/worn out suspension stuff.

A setup guide from Chris Hayes (youtube), his setup videos are pretty good too

This thread's been dormant long enough so it's mine, consider it hi-jacked! :P ;D 8)



For anyone who wants to try my setups, save this link as I add them as I go
(or will at least try to remember to :-[ )

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1obNGYhbGT0kjB2YWjmR0WV8KlKlgyZSr

If anyone has any requests for setups, post here and I'll try to upload at least a 'car' setup, ie. theoretical numbers for the geometry, such as , cambers, suspension frequency, damper ratios, roll centre, toe as well as aero CoP & AoA (if applicable).
And I'll try to help with any specific issues with your current setup, just ask.

I've been reading Racecar Engineering for 15 odd years, I might as well share that knowledge. ;)

I'd like to think it's generous, but it's more selfish, 70% of my enjoyment in sim-racing is working on the engineering side. ;)
So any requests will only make my day. ;D 8)

You are asking for trouble, there is a Legion of setups that need tweaking!   :P :P :P
The answer: -80538738812075974³ + 80435758145817515³ + 12602123297335631³ = 42

Please compare, comment and destroy my confidence.  :P :-[ :-X

Nissan Primera, somewhat in Brands Hatch mode but roughly my default.

Thanks Seanus.

Not mine, but one of Steve Smith's Primera setups. I've used his setups in a number of different cars and usually like them a lot.

I've added a Merc set for Anglesey, by request. ;)
Be careful of changing tyres in the Merc, they have vastly different circumferences.
Therefore, they change ride height and gear ratios required. ;)
