    Most of the cars setups are defaulted to a fairly safe and stable setup. This means you can go out and drive, but if you were to compete with WMD members who have setups, they'll be much quicker.

    Driving a race car around isn't necessarily hard. Trying to go really fast can be... So a few questions:

    1. In the Game Options for Aids, what do you have defined?
    2. Which game mode are going thrashing around?
    3. What times are you laying down when thrashing about?

    Pro and no AIDS whatsoever, i know htat driving a race car not on the limit is easier then alot of people think, nevertheless, cant stop to feel that an invisible hand is helping me around. Its not only about the times, i am in no way a fast driver, but its more the way i attack msot turns and get away with it... just that.

    Try a GT4 car and get back to us, less grip and aero should make a difference.

    If you really want to slip slide around, I recommend the Ariel Atom 500 V8

    If your car isn't doing anything funny (spinning, sliding, etc...) you're not going fast enough!

    This is a terrible approach. Default should be pretty competitive, so players could get out the final tenths with small tweaks. The fact players need to mess about a couple of hours to avoid getting curbstomped by someone who "has a setup" is nonsense. When a driver arrives to a track 90% of the setup work is done.

    Default setups are competitive in that they allow most people to get the cars around the track easily and enjoy racing. A lot of the setups people are 'faster' with are because they're tuned for driving style, which can often be completely undriveable for others!

    What will happen is that people will share 'faster' setups in the setup and tuning section for others to try out.

    There's also the point that a great setup for some types of track can be terrible for others (I.e. bumpy Cadwell vs high speed smooth Monza), so the defaults have to cater for all this in a reasonable way.

    Defaults should be track specific already. They should be a half baked job with the basic stuff already done: cooling, overall aero levels, gearing, tyre pressure. Then let drivers tune in the final details.

    If that's too much to ask, a handful of premade ones for similar places would do.
