    I donīt change the fuel.
    I was told that with standard setup independent what the HUD says (itīs 60l if you have changed something in your car setup or it shows the liters as needed for the race, if you have no saved setup of the car.)
    Itīs only a HUD mistake I think.

    I don't know if it was fixed but the league I race with (RevolutionSimRacing) won't run races with fixed setups due to the problems with different fuel being applied to cars if a setup has ever been saved to them. I might be wrong on the fine detail of the bug but it's certainly something like that.

    I am driving ESL.
    Standard setup.
    I have seen some guys who have changed their coolers to close to zero, than saved their changes in the car setup and went back to the ESL race, but I think it has no influence for the standard setup at the end. I hope!

    To be honest, that's what puts me off of simracing most. In real racing drivers do 3-6 hours MAX before going into qualifying. I don't feel like doing 100 hours in fixed circumstances to perform well in something that is not even my job. If anything I'd prefer a fantasy track that no one knew and had only a set amount of time to learn it. Just like the Formula E vs Simracers contest a few weeks ago. Then aliens aren't aliens so much because they don't get 100+ hours to dial in their driving and setups that are just completely unrealistic in preperation compared to RL. I'm way to ADHD to stick to a combo (10 times or) more than RL drivers do. It's all kinds of wrong IMHO...

    And yes IRL they have simulators, but they're just that. I'd bet that a lot of simracers prepare more in their sim(which is exactly the same as their race environment) than real drivers. Only thing that makes real life easier is that racing drivers have engineers who can cook up a set up based on data(including feedback from the driver in the simulator). It's that last thing that we're missing. We (sim drivers) are the race AND engineer. When I race I don't want to be the engineer.... So my wish is that one day I have an AI engineer, that can take most(if not all) of my setup work away.

    I'm more of a "Know your car, then the track will come to you" kind of guy.

    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

    Agreed with the simracers having unlimited practice time to nail every corner perfectly.
    I'm not a TT guy. I'd rather do a 2 hour race than spend 2 hours hot lapping.

    As for AI engineer, I wouldn't trust it. Not for a long time yet. Until then, we have community "engineers" (projectcarssetups.eu)

    I think its due to how the lobby is set up. when fuel is off you still need to put it to 1L to lose the weight (as far as i know its still like this). also lots of people close their radiator to 1% if it says "no mechanical failures" (because it simply wont blow up) and you will be faster.

    Are you 100% sure that this changes (1l and cooler to zero) have an influence for standard setup raves?
