    McLaren MP4-12C GT3 - Heavy Bags of Understeer

    What are you guys doing to get this car to behave? The default setup is dead slow at Brno and Spa. I've stiffened up the rear and shortened the gears and taken off a bit of rear wing, which helps, but it starts to get twitchy and still understeers mid-corner to exit. Do you get aggressive and try to throw the car into the corners? Any advice is appreciated!

    Reduce Limited Slip Acceleration Lock to get rid of the corner exit understeer. Alternatively make the front springs softer (but this could be a downside with the many load changes in the chicanes).

    What assists are you using? GT3 cars have ABS and TC for a reason.

    The 12C GT3 already has the front springs on full soft. I totally forgot about the assists as I run with them off all the time! Thanks for the info!

    Could it be the front springs are TOO soft and riding on bump rubbers?

    Honestly I think it's a case of overdriving the car. Brno is very prone to that because of all those slightly outside cambered corners.

    Nonsense; who ever overdrives a race car?

    if its over steer for the entry try increasing the deceleration on the differential, this will slow the car down more to keep it stable when off the throttle so try braking a little later but for sweeping bends you want momentum so brake earlier for the sweepers and later for the hairpins. when understeering mid turn soften the front roll bar and stiffen the rear, but if its an issue when on the power and throttle controlling mid turn then increase the acceleration on the differential and increase the traction control slip so it allows more wheelspin before aids help.
