    For a dedicated wet setup, I'd increase cold/setup tyre pressure significantly. You'll get tyres at ~90°c at race start which will quickly fall away to 30-45°c and a corresponding drop in pressure - which may leave your tyres very under-inflated.
    Softer suspension, less brake pressure, less camber, increased ride height all help.
    Boost or engine tune adjustments might help tame the power in some cars without adversely affecting lap times.

    Thanks - I was doing the Ginetta thing in Career mode, GT3 at Snet, rain, cold. Softened up the ARBs and lifted height, and dropped pressures to minimum - as I couldn’t keep any heat in them after race start whatsoever! I even had the brake ducts closed to 15 & 5%. They did seem to go through cycles - they came back, went away, came back, and then went away again - all only in 13 laps. I’ll bear in mind the adjustments to camber and other points too.

    I wouldn't recommend minimum pressures on wet tyres. They work fine in temp ranges colder than soft tyres.

    But shouldn’t dropping the pressures increase the heat...?

    Yes, but at a point it becomes ineffective and due to the environment (cold water) the tyres don't get the chance to warm up.
    In which case you have under inflated cold tyres.

    But you could have correct inflation cold tyres, improving your contact patch and performance.
