    Aston Martin DBR1-2

    Currently I am trying to get this car set up for the Dubai Autodrome GP and am in 4th place with my -1.7 camber set-up. I took the Dubai GP set up for this car and saved it to Zhuhai. Zhuhai is one of the tracks I have designated as a -3.7 camber track for my experiment so I set the camber to -3.7, made 1 lap, adjusted the tire pressures and ran 1 more lap to finish 2nd (you will never be able to get any higher than 2nd here, there is a keyboard player in first). I have repeated this Dubai GP to Zhuhai set-up transfer with a few more of the prototypes and it has worked but never this easily so I am giving you a heads up! We all use different set-ups but I have some confidence that it will work for you, I have been trying to find out which track combinations work best and for me Dubai GP to Zhuhai is one.

    Spa and Road America are a good match.

    Love this car. Eats rear tyres like it's fuel xD

    Thanks hkraft300 Those 2 tracks are too much for me at the moment though. I am able to run at Zolder, Watkins Glen Short, Laguna Seca, Bugatti and Brno now although I have only done the Speed 8 so far.

    Looking at the setups you've posted, I recommend more front downforce. You'll get better grip at the front and it won't upset the rear.

    Brno and Silverstone GP would pair well too for setups with very little changes.

    Thanks, hkraft300. I have added front downforce at Hockenhiem (used to hate these tracks because I could not run them). Hockenhiem GP-10th, National-3rd and Short-1st. Sonoma Short-2nd. Nurburgring Mullenbach-1st, Sprint-3rd and Short 1st. Watkins Glen Short-4th. Laguna Seca-13th and Zolder-11th. Sorry about the typo before, all these runs are with -3.4 camber. I also ran the California Highway Stage 1-1st, this is a beautiful track that few run (just 3??) and with the higher camber it's fun. You just have to survive the first downhill sections with no brakes and then it's great
    Brno and Snetterton are challenging with this suspension and Fosters horrible as well. My fault though, I only allowed myself tire pressure, downforce and brake bias adjustments with the DBR1-2 for this test.

    I am going to work on the Snetterton tracks because I think the Dubai suspension will work ok there. Snetterton100-1st, Snetterton 200-1st and Snetterton 300-2nd (the 1st place time is excellent and I don't know if I can get there but I am happy with 2nd here). For me Snetterton is mostly adding additional camber(front and rear) and more downforce. The tricky corner for me is the left/right after the bridge thingy, I need a little brake drag for stability to make it through this section. Attached is the 300 setup. I am sorry this car is not going to be in PCars2 but there are so many additional cool cars I will get over it.
