    Rain setup

    So iam about to drive on road america in a ford GTE in RAIN(1hour race) and about to try to make a rain race setup currently I have lowed the tire pressure.... and anti rollbar is going up....also raised the backend a little is there anytings else I can do to make it more stable( pretty damn hard to control the car in rain ) and secondary a little faster???

    I would soften the rollbar, not stiffen it. I would also soften the dampers and maybe springs too. I'd use less camber and more downforce. I would lower TC and raise ABS. If there is power-on oversteer coming out of corners, I'd increase the power ramp angle on the diff.

    I'm not sure about tire pressure. You might need to raise it because the tires will not be heating up as much.

    I'd start at one or two clicks and go from there. Since the tires won't have as much traction, there will be less weight transfer to the outside tires when you turn. Softening the suspension will allow more body roll but the penalty is that steering will be less responsive. If you go too far, the steering will feel mushy.

    In the wet everything that is important in the dry is multiplied. Get your braking done as soon as possible and the power on earlier than in the dry. This will give you a massive advantage down the straights compared to 90% of people who are trying to go through the corners faster in the wet. Softer is generally better but the faster the track the more downforce/stiffer you want the car and vice versa.

    Wouldnt increasing the power ramp angle make the car MORE unstable when getting back on the throttle? More likely for the tires to break loose in the wet?

    No. Increasing the power ramp angle will DEcrease acc diff locking and therefore reduce the chances for power oversteer.

    My understanding of differentials is woefully inadequate
