Any advice most appreciated.
On monza last bend my front left smokes the whole way around the turn, its not the brakes as 500ish degrees.
I don't have tire wear on the options but it is affecting me in the final laps, what is the issue?
Please and thank you.

tire going past the slip angle and scrubbing which is increasing the heat of the tire and costing you grip.

I noticed this on a few tracks like T3 of Barcelona and the final turn of Algarve. Seems a bit over done IMO, but i have no track experience IRL.

I would suggest either stiffening the front springs or ARB, and perhaps adding a bit more camber to try to get a better contact patch on the front tires.

it could be a bug. The Lambo GT3 does that a lot around Watkins, and other cars like the Aston GTE do that on the Porsche Curves at Le Mans

It could be. I noticed the same issue on long corners. When you look at the replay the smoke is not appearing.
