    So much for the post patch 4x setups eh? Seems as though with the changes they won't now be applicable post patch 5. SMH.
    Starting all over again I guess. Just wish we could have setups applied where we don't have to keep discarding after a relatively short while with ensuing patches.

    I don't think it's that bad, my guess is that most patch 4 setups apply to patch 5 as well. Actually even many (or most?) patch 3 setups should still apply I think.

    Hi cpcdem. Have you tired running any of your old setups yet? Post one of your road course TT runs, old vs new. I've tried and my more recent ones are no longer driveable using hard tires. No grip, it used to be I would have some grip after the first lap, not anymore. I don't know how many laps the tires need to heat up. Maybe I need to go to softs now???
    Softs after 3 laps.

    These are my tire temps after 3 laps on Hards they used to be around 195/200 at the front so maybe reduce tire pressure. Cocoa already ran a new WR at RBR with the RSR so it's possible to get it right, can't load his setup/ghost, glitched. Which brings us to another glitch in the WMD portal, now showing all runs have ghosts even when they don't.

    Hmmm, maybe I was wrong then. If the tire model has changed much, then maybe old setups (with some cars at least) have indeed became obsolete. Unfortunately still need to do some work so I haven't really tried the new patch yet (apart for a quick 10 minute session), but will try what you said a little later and will post back. My road car times are all done in default setup, but will check if my TC and GT3 setups still apply.

    Check GT3 please. Here is what I have found with the RSR GTE. I lowered the tire pressure and got very close to my previous PB but the temps are way off and dropping after 3 laps so I don't know what the Hards will be used for, this is at Silverstone National(this is not a cold track, at least it didn't use to be) with no other changes to my set up. Setups might be ok in TT with changing the tire pressure, this would be nice. How you will race like this might be a challenge. You can't lower pressure because it is locked and I have my brake ducts closed and still the temps are dropping.

    I just tried my 488 GT3 in RBR (hard tires), indeed I am more than a second slower than before and have trouble keeping it under control, especially under heavy braking. The tire temps looked good, but maybe I am wrong. Thing is we do not know what changes happened, if this is an intended change or an unwanted side effect, or if we should be using soft tires now, so I think I'll just refrain from driving GT3s for the moment and let you guys figure this out

    Here is where I am at with the Renault RS.01 GT3, lowered tire pressure only. To me, I can't get handle on when I am about to lose grip with this car. I am slower even though I am trying harder. A previous poster said he thought there was more grip(gripier) so maybe I need to reduce the camber a little from my Patch 4.0 setup.

    I edited my previous post, but you had replied already. Moved my reply here: OK, I did a quick test also with the softs, those made a huge difference, I am competitive again! I am testing under TT environment only. Really wondering if this was an intended change in patch 5...

    Sorry cpcdem, your Ferrari is dead, it died in the patch notes, strangled to reduce horsepower. Sorry, turned into an overweight slug to change horsepower to weight. Probably won't work and people will still be upset in multiplayer with the 488 being too fast.

    I am still messing with the Hards. I reduced the camber a little and this seemed to help me with the grip/no grip transition.
