    Appreciate you sharing these tunes and insight.
    A piece of the tuning puzzle appears to be missing, LSD and preload.
    Do you use stock settings for these adjustments? If not, would be nice if you added these numbers to your tunes.

    thanks again.

    Hi SGETI, you are welcome! What I do when starting out with a new car is set deceleration to 52% and acceleration to 26% and start with preload at around 40, I don't use viscous lock much except with the Audi and Mitsubishis. At Dubai I usually end up with preload low or at zero because I will break loose in some of the ruts/dips on these tracks if there is too much preload. If I am still breaking loose I will continue to lower the acceleration lock until I can get control. Although I would like to have better launch out of corners that acceleration and preload provide the detriment in the dips with my driving style is too much. I tend to smoke the tires with a lot of these cars and trying to improve my throttle control is an exercise in futility. I will include where I end up with these parameters in the future. If you are interested in a particular car let me know, for some unknown reason I am pretty lucky with the Paganis.

    Dallara DW12 Indy Car at Snetterton 200 2nd, after a few runs, adjusted rear end gear to 4.94 and picked up 2 tenths, still 0.746 behind leader. Haven't changed LSD since Dubai National, 7% acceleration lock, 38% deceleration lock and 8nm preload. This set up should run Snetterton 100 fine, just swap left and right tire pressures. I am going to run some cars on the Snetterton tracks, I am able to run more competitive times here on the 200 and 300 than I was at the longer Hockenhiem tracks. If you haven't run at Snetterton before trying to get good tire temps is difficult, if you ease off your tires can cool down so quickly you end up wasting 2 laps so you need constant aggression to get the best out of your tires. Paganis are 3rd, 1st, 2nd, 1st and 1st. If you are going to run Snetterton setup on the 200 track and you'll get the 100 setup leaving just the 300 to work on.

    Snetterton 200, Ruf CTR3 SMS-R 1st. I usually have issues with this car, controlling the rear end. I was stuck in 2nd with -1.4 rear camber so I upped it to -1.7 and went 5 tenths quicker to 1st on the out lap. Sorry I couldn't do any better with -1.4. LSD acceleration lock 22%, deceleration lock 52% pre-load 0, no change from Dubai National.

    I ran 53 cars at Snetterton 200 using the -2.7 front camber and the -1.4 rear camber. The results were 5 1st's, 7 2nd's, 11 3rd's, 5 4th's and 10 5th's. The rest of the runs were scattered from 6th through 13th. I think that is enough runs for this set up. I started going back through my cars. The first one I picked to re run was the Mercedes CLK-LM, I had previously run low 1:03's. I changed rear camber to -1.7 and ran 1:01.604 which is 1st. That is a big improvement for a change of just -0.3 camber which with this car shows how critical camber settings can be for improved performance. I am going to try some of my other cars with the change to -1.7 rear camber and see if I can improve these times as well. Attached is the set up for this run. LSD was 24% acceleration, 52% deceleration and 0 preload from the Dubai National runs.

    Marek RP 219D LMP2 improved 7 tenths to 3rd 0.342 out of 1st. I had to change the weight balance rearward to get any improvement here. Also ran the Speed 8 3 tenths improvement and R8 3 tenths no changes other than camber. With the AM Vantage GT3 no improvement, worse. I will have to adjust the cars to get any benefit of the slightly increased camber, nothing easy with this game

    Corvette C7.R at the 200 3rd. Picked up 7 tenths by using the -1.7 rear camber, changed brake bias from 57 to 49 and removed downforce on the front to get this to work at all. I was slower with just using the increased rear camber. I should be able to pick up 2nd with some additional runs(0.086 back) . LSD is 25% acceleration lock, 50% deceleration and 40NM preload from the Dubai National runs. The preload may be a little too high for some sections of this track but I will try other adjustments first. The default camber for this car is -3.4 front and -2.6 rear with most of the runs made by other drivers that are using default camber. I might have shot myself in the foot by trying to utilize reduced camber at this track

    My Corvette is screwed. Somehow I got caught up in a time rift and my TT times are offset for this car. It now always shows the 1:08 times even though I rebooted my computer and started the Steam/PCars again. I also don't understand my double post in another thread I started about this, sorry for doing it. I tried to edit it and it disappeared so I made another post and now there are 2. I noticed yesterday that when I was attempting runs my ghost car would blow past me over and over no matter what car I tried. I went and did a speed test on my router and all of a sudden I was only getting 27mps down and 3.5 up. I unplugged the router and then was back to normal getting 60+ down and 6 up. The cars started behaving again and I was making progress. I checked my router again today and the upload and download speeds are normal right now so I don't know what is glitching this. I checked the Cadillac ATSV and when I select my ghost the times in TT are correct so hopefully my Corvette is the only one that's screwed. It's not just a game it's an adventure

    Ok, I'm back up and running again. Cadillac ATS-V.R GT3 Snetterton 200 2nd picked up over 6 tenths by changing to the higher camber values. More camber means I needed to reduce downforce so I am at 1 front and 8 rear.

    McLaren MP12C GT3 Snetterton 200 1st. Utilized increased camber for this run and picked up over 3 tenths. Increasing camber meant more drag so I had to reduce downforce as usual since I don't have a Nitrous button to add more power. Also, I can't find the Easy button either so if anyone knows where it is please let me know. I am not using default camber either, too much for me. LSD is 25% acceleration, 52% deceleration and 0 preload. Since I am still using the same spring and damper settings developed at Dubai I am more convinced that the more critical driver for performance is camber settings when you have tracks that can utilize your springs and dampers.
