You can "steal" a setup in the Timetrial. Launch the track and car with a ghost and here you can save the ghost's setup.

I recommend downloading from leaderboard, I liked | DIXON | setup but I made sit so I had more down force for race. I went with -.5 and -6.5 (Dixon's was -2.0 and -10.0) but I may decrease it a bit that was just what I set for starting point and on push to pass I'm .7seconds off fastest Indy cars and it's drivable, stable for long races

Tweak around with gearing. A bit. Youre going to want one gear for no push to pass. Most leaderboard cars are set up for push to pass and you only get one, and gear above for push to pass and draft. Just a click or two above the gear to run with none

Weight jacket really helps on ovals -10 is max left turn help- but I can tell you it gets a bit old on the staights on long races as there is no break. As you need slight counter steer to right to go straight. I'm not entirely happy with mine but next time I'm on I'll look and post something. It's a tweak of Dixon's though. So it's a good start. His was just real loose until you get use to it. And all you need to do is add DF, then tweak gearing.

Can some one explain why a 40.6 sec non draft/ non p2p setup is10 seconds slower in the career? So when I need to go 200 laps I need to do it slower? My set up is good to
Be less the 1/2sec slower then some of best times in TT but I have the DF for consistency and now I need to run 2000 more seconds because the game wants us to take longer? Wtf?
33minutea longer for some reason (clear weather)

Bugs:
Front tires of AI disappear for a moment when coming up to pass (least on Xbox they do)

How do you actually save the ghost setup. I can see it in the share tab and I can highlight it but when I try to save it it doesn't seem to save anywhere even though it brings up the save area and I can give it a name, etc. When I try to load it up I can't find anywhere to load it from.

Hi Mammerpgh, once you select the Ghost you want and click start you then have to click on the light blue gear on the right to get to the next screen where you load the ghost's setup. I have attached a setup from PC. The setup belongs to Mudders Ersatriefenand at 0:38.500 is the best since the patch on PC Time Trial.

I personally can’t get any higher than 229 mph on the back straight. Do you select superspeedway set up or oval as base?

Superspeedway is Daytona Tri-Oval, for Indy you need to select Oval.

Tried it up to 231mph now. Is there a boost issue since a patch?

Not that I am aware of. Would you like me to post mew3's setup? That is what I used to get 235.

Or does the Honda just suck that bad? I adjusted the radiator opening down to 5% and gained a few mph that way. I’m down to the 39s but no way to the 38 that is the Indy car fastest lap.

The best time I could find for the Honda since the 4.0 Patch is 0:39.499(#140 sms austino, one of the better runners on PC) so it seems like you are as good as that. It's not much better for the Chevrolet. Are you comparing yourself to those who are running the same Patch as you?

So I set up my Honda Indy car for Indy oval. Ran qualifying at night. I would hit 240mph going into turn 3. When I enter a race during daylight, I'm lucky to hit 230mph on the back stretch.
Does time of day really have that big of an effect on the car? Am I missing something here? Appreciate any tips

Sounds like a change in wind speed and direction. It does vary through the whole weather/time cycle.

I had a run for the first time on this circuit this week. I noticed a huge difference in car performance from Quali to the Race. In Quali the car was hitting the limiter in 5th gear just before the end of the straights. I was staying in 5th gear through the whole lap and getting 40.6 lap times on a full load of fuel. Jump into the race and the performance is down. Can not reach the limit of 5th gear and i have to downshift to 4th to keep the speed up in the corners. I also noticed that the warm tyre pressures were significantly higher in the race than in Quali. I adjusted the pressures for the race, but the power of the engine is still down between quali and the race. In Quali the car burns 2.6litres of fuel per lap, but in the race the car only burns 2.3litres. Someone said this is a real life power reduction that may have been transferred into the game. They said during real practice and qualifying for the Indy 500 the teams have their engine power cranked up but for the race they turn it down. Although that may be the case, it still doesn't explain the warm tyre pressure differences between quali and the race. I think it makes it really hard to set up the car for the race if you can't test the car properly for race conditions in a practice session.

EDIT - I used the same time of day and weather, and the same setup for both quali and race session.
