    Post [SETUP GUIDE] Setup your car in 21 steps

    Hello folks! I wrote this setup guide back in the days when GTR 2 was the simulation of reference. I still use it today with Project Cas 2. This guide is actually an Excel sheet describing a strategy to build your own setup from scratch. Step by step, it explains how to setup each component of the car to obtain a setup perfectly suited to your driving style. It is available in French, English, Spanish and Italian thanks to the contribution of community members. I plan to release the 1.00 for Project Cars 2 as some items are not applicable as is. I give you the link to the present release. Hope it will help some of you developping their own setup as it is basically a game in the game...

    For those who wonder, 80% of the knowledge in this guide comes from this very old but very well made manual that was coming along Grand Prix Legend :

    Thanks from my side as well! And finally I see the guy who created this Excel-Sheet.

    I've been using this 6 years ago when I first started creating own setups, however I haven't been too successful yet. (Not your fault, though! )

    Going to be handy to see if I can improve things on PCars 2.

    Thank you for your feedback guys. Must say that I'm estimating the interest of the community before starting a deep refresh of the file to adapt it to Project Cars 2.

    For those who wonder how to use Telemetry in Project Cars 2, I urge them to try vrHive from MickeyTT as this tool is almost as powerful as the MoTeC was for GTR 2!

    I've been using Vrhive for a while now and I'm currently using it with PC2 with no issues, it's brilliant records all my sessions and most importantly lap times with telemetry.

    However I'm yet to add video as above I need to try that once my PS4 uploads to you tube (no idea why not)

    You can use a simple USB key to transfer video. I had the same issue (service unavailable, try again later) and it was solved by going to the external services option menu in order to rebind my PSN and Youtube accounts.
