I think you use a default setup which can't be changed for time trials, people are so fast on Monza cause the track limits are not strict and they cut through both chicanes, check out the ghost cars

I'll give you a good setup. Shortly :). But as spade said, many ppl abuse corner cuts.

Actually, yea you can use custom setups for time trials. You just have to set up before at practice and then have it set up at garage before you start time trial.

Here is the setup. good stable dont be afraid to power it up, and also dont be a afraid to use a lil kurb (or eat it like in the first turn and 3rd turn) :). for the sectoin after the 2nd chicane the two corners just leave it at 3rd gear as i raised it the ratio a bit to give a good power band.

cheers Jeyd02 will try it out, just wondering why your tow front tires are different pressures?

Tyre pressures will be diff according to what wheels drive the car...for instance as the procar is rwd so it stands to reason that as you work up to ideal running temps the pressure required in rear will be completely diff to those on the front as the rears have to drive the car and the fronts only to steer...there is more to it than that but its long winded and I would sound like captain slow if I started waffling on about it lol

Well mostly because since Monza is clockwise track there is more burden on the left tires specially of those fast corners, so I increase the pressure to even up the heat/grip of all four tires.


LOL and as mph said which are other factors. :)

Oversteer where? When pressing the gas on corner or breaking or on fast curves?

Okay then DECREASE the accel (differential) lock until it doesn't slide for you. Or be gentle on throttle then power it down.

also wondering why you changed gears towards acceleration when there is two long straights ? :)

well because at the highest straight you want the last gear to just top the redzone. better accel with enough top end speed.

You can get away with running 0 downforce on this car....

Edit: Nevermind, yet again the game has lied to me and taken a few hours off the time remaining to enter.
