    Yeah I don't know if that's a good idea myself. It would seem using the softer springs on the lefts would not be good for the high load right hand corner before the start/finish straight. I can't find that he's running his springs at the other tracks this way.

    The only track I run asymmetric springs at is Daytona Tri-Oval and the other ovals. That track is only high load lefts and the cars need stiffer right side springs. Indy doesn't need as exaggerated a difference and Texas either but at those tracks as well it's stiffer outside springs. At Monza Vintage I don't run the springs different with the Saubers.

    OK, did some testing yesterday with the fixed springs and my "fast setup." I've changed the right springs to the same value as the left springs, and was able to drive nearly the same time again, I was only a tenth slower. Tires were able to last three laps before the overheating started.

    But I dont think the (wrongly installed) springs were the issue, the solution is increasing the rear aero. I've changed the rear wing to 7, which reduced slipping at this last right hander. There is still some slipping present, so I'll test tomorrow with even more rear wing.

    Well, then moving the weight forward probably wasn't the best idea since now you are adding rear wing.

    No, it was a good idea because it moved the cg position closer to the front wheels which results in less lateral load transfer at the rear.
    Aero load on the other hand doesn't have a lateral component which could overload the tires.

    I've changed my "fast setup", so I went back to 50/50! Moving the weight to the front decreased the rear tire temperature a little bit, but I was roundabout five tenths slower per lap. So its time to compromise. But adding more rear aero helped due to reduced slipping.

    But the last word isnt spoken yet.

    Im so confused

    Water spray system. Sure. xD Why do polar bears not eat penguins?
