I'm pretty new to racing sims with a wheel iv bought myself a fanatec csw and fanatec v2 pedal, iv put about 14 hours into this game so far, I'm mainly playing time trial at the moment on hockenhiem gp not sure on the spelling for that track lol, I'm using the rwd lmp1, iv turned off the traction control and stability control I'm using abs and I'm also automatic:(,

I will go manual soon as I shave 200th of a second off my time to get my ghost up, iv never played with a wheel and manual so that my next task, my current time is 1.25.2?? My kids are on the ps at the moment so I can't remember the last 2 numbers, but I need to shave 200th of a second to get in the top 30, I got a 1.26.5?? With default tuning and I couldn't get any faster, iv also can't get any faster with my current setup giving me a 1.25.2??

Suspension wise I've only lowered it and put the spring rate up, I haven't touched camber castor toe in etc.... As there a bit confusing to me, My main problem is understeer can someone point me in the right direction, I will put my setup on later if I can get a go on the ps lol so you can point me in the right direction, im also just using my right foot for brake and throttle which is probably eating a few 100th of a second,
Thanks for looking just thought I would tell you my progress and hope I can get some tips to get abit faster

Always good to have this link saved: Setup Database (http://projectcarssetups.eu/#/bycar)

Probably not the best way to fix understeer but I always end up playing with the diff settings. This is a basic overview of the diff changes that can be made. Here (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?25676-Easy-Differential-Tuning-(reduce-spinouts)).

Thanks for the reply I will have a look, n1

You could try softening the front AR/Sway bar, but just a click or two. Too soft and you'll have problems with body roll. If it's happening on corner entry, you can also try softening the front springs to get more weight on the front tires under deceleration.

I will give them a try (haiden) its handling a lot better now iv messed with the diff like beetes juice mentioned, it's mainly understeering exiting the bends when I'm on the power, and abit under heavy braking, not really bad just needs a fine tune,

I jumped 10 places last night shaving 800th of a second off my time putting me in 15th place out of the rwd lmp1's and 26th in the class, which I'm over the moon about and iv go my ghost up, I'm roughly 1.8 1.9 seconds behind the fastest lmp1 which is a life time in racing as you already know, im going to switch to going manual now and hopefully when I get the hang of it I can shave some more seconds off.

IMO, the diff settings are best for correcting on/off throttle related oversteer. Lowering Accel Diff probably helped because you're essentially cutting exit power, which would reduce understeer. But if you can get more grip from the front, then you wouldn't need to lower the Accel Diff. Lowering front tire pressure, softening AR bar, softer front springs, or more front downforce would help with the understeer. But understeer can also be the result of trying to carry too much speed into the corner on entry, or putting to much power down too soon on exit. If you haven't already, you might want to make sure it's not one of those issues, before you fiddle with the other settings. :)

Although the right amount of accel diff helps rotate the car better out of certain corners to mitigate that exit-understeer.
But first: what Haiden said. I'd also recommend running the setup through Jussi's calculator for a more neutral/less front biased setup with appropriate damping.
As for entry well, what Haiden said. Again. If your braking super late and hot on entry the front tyres will give in. A bit of brake bias towards the rear a few clicks might help there, though if you're too aggressive it'll snap sideways on entry.
