Anyone have an idea how to iron out the body roll and bounce in this car?

Hi odemode, besides the usual Front l/R and Rear L/R you have the additional center springs. Attached are just an example of what you might change these to at a track like Brands Hatch GP.
Default Loose

Changes due to bumps in track surface.

See, increasing the 3rd spring value on the front might allow more bounce control while you can still lower L/R front springs to give you better turn in while cornering. Also, while some in general recommend "0" for the bump stops(which this car has in Default) it doesn't mean you can't also add some bump as below.

Or, you can search the WMD portal here http://cars2-stats-steam.wmdportal.com/index.php/leaderboard?track=1988984740&vehicle=2955645152

Select a track you are having problems with and request a setup for the P1 GTR in the Post Patch 3.0 thread.

Congratulations odemode. That time is better than anyone has managed in TT on the PC platform. Your driving looks really smooth to me, like you know what you are doing. Have you run Silverstone National? I managed a 0:49.859 back when I could drive, I suspect you can easily better that time.

What a superb response. Cheers dude, I do my best but don't be mistaken I did run a few laps to out this time together. I run a very successful league racing group where competition is high so perfecting your skills is very much necessary
