    Forgot to ask (could be here somewhere),

    Setup is fixed?

    Btw, São Paulo's weather right now? Nothing more out the ordinary, would usually call that Casual Tuesday.

    Not GMT, Danish timezone. Which I think means it's CET...? Not sure. Danish time is a safe bet :D

    CEST to be super correct
    refer to the clock on the main page to know the difference between your time and CEST

    I have no idea how to drive this thing !



    Are my lines roughly correct for this car?
    If so, I guess its setup related.
    All tips for stable, rather than fastest gratefully received ;)

    You can probably attack the kerbs more in Senna S (T1 & T2). Line seems fine. Maybe a bit safe in places and so you could go wider on entry and exit in those parts.

    You didn't want tips for speed, but it seemed like a bit of a Sunday drive. Don't mean to offend, sorry! :D What I mean is there is no wheelspin or countersteering and it just sounds and looks too well-behaved :D Remember; you can, and probably should, use ABS and a bit of TC since they are allowed. And will be an advantage in terms of tyre life and just make life a bit easier :)

    Didn't get to watch your video but what kind of lap times were you pulling?

    The Camaro GT3 is so difficult to drive. The car is very unstable, also with a setup. But it felt so slowly, I drive a 1:33.204. I really dont know what can i do to make the car not so unstable. All what i know is on this car wrong. Its so hard.

    I'm not fast but I think the camaro is really nice and formative, good feeling under/oversteering and drift.
    A delicate driving is necessary!

    I agree, the Camaro is not easy to drive but if you want to drive a GT in VEC you'll end up with the same problems when you try to drive at the limit.
    There are some things you can do to make it more stable and in general a bit easier to drive. I made a setup for Salzburgring some seasons ago, just for the fun of it and here it is.
    You can at least have a look at it. It has quite low wing and you can probably be quicker with higher wing but maybe you want to have an easier time overtaking others (ask Tero :p).

    When it came to high speed balance the setup is a bit more conservative so probably quite nice to drive.

    If you really have no idea how to setup a car you should even be able to drive the seutp anywhere. At least the car gets more predictable then.

    @Matt Jacobs It looks like you are very afraid of the car. You never really go to the limit. Especially at the exit of turns 2, 7 and 13 there is so much room at the outside you could use.
    And in the braking of turn 11 it looks like you lift before you even start braking.
    Try my setup, maybe it makes you trust into the car more and then you can start using all the track available

    I love a big wing! :D

    But the thinking behind that is a bit nicer setup for the tyre. Which doesn't quite come into play as well because you should change tyres at the stop. It worked quite nicely with the previous SRCA car, 370z where changing tyres just cost too much time.

    And I guess I just dislike driving so "aero loose" setups. And yes, it makes overtaking harder.

    I might share a setup a bit closer to the race but for now you just have rely on your own setup development skills and/or share setups amongst yourselves, which is welcomed but I've never seen it done here. In the forum at least. Probably not something you want to do in other leagues over here though if you want to maintain some competitive edge :p
