    Question On The Fly Brake Bias Adjustments

    For cars that allow it, when are you adjusting the brake bias on the fly? I'm trying to deepen my knowledge of the little tweaks that more advanced drivers and tuners make during a race.

    Is it on a lap-by-lap basis, where you're adjusting it before particular corners?
    Is it on a stint-by-stint basis, where as the stint goes longer and your brakes are fading, you're adjusting it (presumably forward?).

    The last game I can remember having the option and requirements to adjust the mechanicals was an oval IndyCar racer: As you burned fuel, you adjusted the weight jacker on the fly to keep the car's balance correct.

    Thanks!

    Scenario 1: during tuning/practice/qualifying. Entering a hard braking situations to find the bias I prefer. That means I'll push bias to the rear as far as I can to the point the rear will lock and slide, then I'll push forward a click or 2 for safety.

    Scenario 2 is during a long race as the fuel load drops, so once in a while IF I feel the rear getting wayward during braking.

    Scenario 3: brake temperature management. Lap by lap.

    hkraft, what about going up/down hills. For example, at Bathurst, would it be advisable to adjust it to the rear at the bottom of the hill and then move it forward across the top before you start down the other side, then back to the original setting on Conrod?

    For downhill braking it would be advisable to move brake bias towards the front, vice versa for uphill braking.

    In long sweeping corners where you are trail braking you want to move brake bias towards the rear, but if you spin you have moved it to far back. For acute turns and hairpins (heavy braking) you want to move brake bias towards the front, but not too much because you want the rear wheels to help decelerate the car as well.

    I think that's what I said, isn't it?
