    Formula A - Tuning advice

    Hello there my fellow race nutheads!

    I thought it would be time to start a thread dedicated to the Formula A car, where we discuss and share tips on how we can improve our lap times. I don't really know if we have many people here who spends his or her time mostly practicing and tweaking the Formula A car, but it's worth a shot. So don't hesitate stepping out in the light to share your genius thoughts!

    I thought that I would start by showing a lap time at Monaco with the setup I used.



    To me it felt like that was the once in a lifetime lap. I've spent hours today, trying to best it in time trials but no luck. So I'm asking you veterans, is there anything in the setup that you believe could be changed to improve the lap times? I feel really empty on what I can change, perhaps mixing a bit with the gear ratio but I'm not really sure about that...

    I will try your setup this weeekend, and see what kind of lap I can do with it, and my overall thoughts, since it seems like I have repaired my 1 wheel now.

    Sweet. I mixed a bit with the dampers and differential yesterday, felt a bit better afterwards so I'm progressing forward at least.

    Ye good lap. If you could show one with telemetry, maybe we could pin point problems.
    As it stands, the telemetry is definitely not detailed enough (not enough info on ps4 because no 3rd party extension app yet).

    Agreed. I only check the telemetry for tyre- and brake temperature. The rest feels very uninformative and low detailed.
    I will probably do a practice session today so I'll see what I can pull off.

    Huge progress tonight! Managed a 1:11.8 with several mistakes! A perfect lap would be about 1:10.xxx

    Here my hotlap and setup, feels pretty complete to me now.
