Had a problem with a setup this afternoon and went to check and found that the Longitudinal Weight Bias minimum is now 51.5% and not 48.5% which is what I had it set at before the patch, is this right as its buggered my setup.

Well that's a good way to make a car suck!

It's still the same, only the numbers have changed. You can now set it from 51.5% at the front to 51.5% at the back, where as before it could be set from 48.5 to 51.5%.

It says this in the patch notes (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?41163-Project-CARS-Xbox-One-Patch-5-0-Release-Notes):
GUI & HUD
* Changed the displayed values for Lateral and Longitudinal weight bias, to make it more intuitive.

it has made a difference, it's the only thing that has changed on my setup and from being planted the rear is now coming round all the time, now I will have to go through all my Z4 setups and change them

Brake Bias Tony?

I believe what they have done is set the balance the correct way round so the front is 100, and rear is 0. Not front 0 and rear 100 which it was before post patch(?). Obviously you can't set the weight all the way to 100% on the front, but that's the essance of it. Essentially if you mirror the position of marker on the slider to what it was before, you should have the weight bias in the same place and have the car how you want it.

...um what? I just worked on a setup for the Z4 at Le Mans and moved my weight to 52.5% rear. Car works just fine. On slower tracks with lots of curveys I like to run 50%, the car is really well balanced but likes a lot of front brake bias, at least to accommodate my braking style.
