    Well its not totally default, but tbh i didnt change too much. More front wing, gearing & ride height tweaks, also moved brake bias more to front and tweaked differential. Havent touched springs or dampers at all yet.

    Also as note: Using kers & DRS problerly at right places can make quite a bit difference to laptime.

    I've done 1:30 with defaults and after watching the video I'm like "Damn the defaults have no grip at all!"

    Also semi related with corner cutting, Quote from a Senior.

    Default aint that bad. I did my first laps with bone stock set and best i got was like 1.20. With more laps could easily still shave some time off from that.

    [I really dont get what kind of pleasure these guys gets when setting top times by obvious cheats.[/QUOTE]

    Well I have to say how can they even do it, surely these tracks have been tested to death, why weren't these blatant corners patched so they can't be cut? And will they? I don't really see how you can offer prizes and hold competitions like this when its a race between the best cheaters? Until all these corners that can be cut are patched whats the point in entering if like me you want to race fairly. Its disappointing from a development point of view as this should of been picked up well before release, on monza you can't cut the very first turn on the s bend, and on monaco you can cut the first right hander completely.

    Tracks cut corners aren't that optimized, simple as that. I've said it before, during Closed Beta they seemt to only focus on gameplay experience and visuals (that's only thing you saw on youtube back then), and they kinda avoided any other kind of problems the game had (which so far I've personally found like 10 of them).

    yes its just a shame to see, and the game has been out a matter of days yet theres a lot of the cheat corners come up already, and really obvious ones at that, I found the one on monaco by accident on an online race, i overtook a car on the main straight heading for turn 1, and I braked to late and slid right over the turn a cut it, and got no penalty, so I slowed down and gave the guy the place back, as in real life i should of been penalised. the next lap i thought ile try that again, this time i directly cut it, right over the curb, and nothing. I mean it doesn't get more obvious than that to me, and holding competitions offering prizes to people who cheat before fixing these problems doesn't seem fair to the players who put the time and effort in to race fairly and clean. I've seen videos on youtube of people setting times and cheating, and its irritating for people who genuinely want to race a fair race.

    Wow, 1:20 with default setup. Did you have any problem with brakes locking or do you just slam them on fully? Or was that what you changed the brake bias for?

    Hotlapping pro's been doing it for years remember on PGR we would wall bounce to gain those extra few micro seconds, welcome to hotlapping we will take whatever line which is fastest, stretch any track rules to make it happen

    DOH! Just watched your vid again and was thinking to myself what the little bar going down next to the DRS was...been trying to get into the 1.19's and didn't even realise there is a KERS...facepalm.
