    Horse Thief Mile - Formula R

    Hello! I've been currently enjoying the Horse Theif Mile varient of Willow Springs in the Formula Rookie, however I have had a few issues with getting a nice feeling setup that does not bottom out.

    T2 -> T3 - The car starts running out of puff into 4th gear
    My gearing settings;
    Final Drive: 3.444
    1st: 2.846
    2nd: 1.875
    3rd: 1.421
    4th: 1.125

    Could possibly angling the gears more to acceleration over top speed be a worthwhile sacrifice into the downhill of S2 where I commonly hit the limiter.

    Well it says your Platform is PC. The WR on PC TT is running slightly shorter 4th gearing than you. Otherwise minimal changes to Default.

    I will give shorter gearing on 4th an attempt. Currently (last time I checked) I hold 22nd on Time Trail in the combo, I will also try a less agressive steering setup too.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Well sheez I see you now. BTW I used his setup with a few mods and I am in 9th, it's mostly braking too much and not carrying enough speed. Carry on.

    Hey, my legs don't work either, what's up with yours?

    Inside joke but I thought it looked comedic
