Default Setup Pit Stop Changes

For those of you that race in Leagues that run with default setups and only are able to adjust your settings in the pits, here’s a few changes you can make at Bristol. The only problem is you only have so much time to make these changes while coming down pit road, so I suggest taking advantage of every pit stop until you've made all the changes. Anyway, here goes:

 


Tires: Both Left 18 / FR 33, RR 34

 

Trackbar: 7.1 (Default)

 

Wedge: 45.96 or if too Loose: 46.21

 

Grill Tape: 50% (Default)

 

Best Lap: 14.53

 

Assists: None

am not sure what you have tried so far, but you may want to try "backing up" the turns a bit am not sure if it will help because I don't know your driving style but might be worth a try.

guess I need to ask if it helped the longevity of the RF tire !  while I ask that do you have problems with the RR , if not you may well need to look at the setup and tweak the RF until your lap times improve or stay somewhat consistent, if it was me I think I may work with the caster and camber.

I'm working in Bristol right now. Its giving me fits. I cant get past 14.42 and top out at 140 on type a gears and 142 on b gears. So far my tire wear appears ok but I'm not sure about it yet. She's a little snappy as well at one point in the race. Now some thing I would like to point out. If anyone is on Xbox 360 like myself and these guys are on ps3.. What I found was you need to drop your front right spring from 100 to 300 lbs. This will help pull out the tightness.

I found that I taking out more wedge out of the league setup, helped me. But I topped it out at also 140 and got I only got 14.55 lap. This is with the league pitstop setup. I have the tires the same and I'm at about 45.00 for wedge. I was doing this in the test track, but I think that might help people with bustin' down the outside walls of turns 2 & 4.

I have a completely different setup running 14.22, its a loose setup but the problem im having is that in track testing it sticks in the corner perfect but as soon as I get into a race it gets very loose and even if I tighten my wedge itÃ??s still gets sideways in center of the corner
