please have a look at the pic and tell me what the figure with ??? means.
and am i correct in labeling the other 2 points as outer and inner temps.

I'm struggling to relate this to 21 step set up guide is all?

I'm getting zero response in the PS4 room, so i'm really hoping somebody in here can help.
I'm trying to follow the 21 step guide but first i need to understand the telemetry:-
207113

what does the figure stand for where i put the question marks?

am i correct in my assumptions for the other 2 (outer and inner tyre temps)?

Thanks in anticipation

I think how good your tyres are. 100=100% etc. etc.

LOL hillarious, i give up

It was in Shift2, but obviously we have an entirely new tyre model now... I will take a stab and say it's 'the amount of grip left available in that tyre at that moment'.

You are correct about the temperatures, but you can't use them to tune camber/pressure as in the 21 step guide (for now) unfortunately.

The number with the ??? is the percentage of that wheel's grip that is being used. So in the image you've posted it looks like at that moment in time you are working the front tyres more so I guess you were experiencing understeer at that moment.

Thanks mate, even Ian Bell didn't know for sure on my other post :-)

IIRC Casey once said that this number is a leftover from the BTM tire model and serves basically no function right now.

Edit: Threads merged.

Thanks, that makes me look a bit less clueless :)

I kinda figured it has something to do with grip. When you accelerate or go trough a corner, the number gets higher.

Is there a way to check the tyrewear? I cant seem to find out the condition of the tyres. Wich is mandatory to make good pitstop strategies :)

atm its all on the feel.. On pc i think you can see that data with a compagnion app, which sadly isnt available on console. I'm sure they will update and improve the console telemetry soon.

The grip that is currently being used? I'm not convinced, as the weight of the car is currently all on the left but the front right tyre is reading 100? That doesn't sound right to me...

Correct, he did say that.

Ah, ok. I missed that. My apologies.

No need for apologies as you wouldn't have known about it, as it was discussed on the WMD forum some time ago.

In that case could it be turned into the tyre wear %? That would be very handy.

yeah, that`d be very good :) i`d like to see my tyrewear so you can test how tyres behave in certain situations. That way you can plan pitstops way better.

From what I've seen on my own telemetry, it seems like that is the %-age of grip available, so the back left tire is only using 29% of its grip.
But apparently it now serves no purpose.

I don't think it represents grip available but some sort of guide regarding the contact patch on the road (but maybe this is what your meant?) I notice that during heavy acceleration these numbers in the front decrease which results in lighter steering. Braking of course shows the opposite. I could be wrong but this is what I've experienced. Strange that the OP's pic doesn't necessarily reflect this while entering a right turn.

Did you not read this a few posts up?...

Responding to hkraft300 regarding availability as opposed to actual grip. Funny, did you not real his post?

Yep sure did and he said...

So your post is moot.

Ironic?

Sorry to the OP for going off on this pointless tangent
