What you're going to want to do is lower the tire pressures first. I'd take them down to 25-27 PSI. Higher PSI will make the car easier to catch and recover from slides, but low PSI (22-24) will give you the best grip. I'm using 25R 26F right now. Sebring requires good stability, so I'd leave the roll bar where it is or increase the stiffness if it feels like it's falling over in the corners (more grip = more body roll = more body roll control required). 4 was too little for me, I have it on 6 right now after 1 hour practice session. Be careful in the slow stuff though, it'll get a bit pointier without downforce. I'd set the perches at + 2 or 3 to start. I'd leave the brake bias at 62 until you really learn the ropes - the final turn and turn 1 are both really nasty if you have the brake bias too far back. I'm running 58 brake bias and that seems just right for me.I'll probably race the Skippy @ Sebring making it my first race in ages. I still need work, but I hit a PB of 1:31.012. My biggest problem with the Skippy is that the rear steps out at times especially at speed any suggestions? I love having the rear snap to help turn on medium/slow speed turns such as the hairpin at Sebring, but the back section of the course along with the final turn are killing me. If I only had a bit more rear grip I'd be flying with this thing..
Really? That is surprising. What makes it suck?The Vette sucks just saying...Ovals are fun no matter the car lots of precision required.
That was right when the Falcon came out, so naturally everyone wanted a piece of it. Most bit off more than they could chew, and have since lost interest in it, or so I'm told - it handles like a pig. These days it would be a more balanced field.
Welcome to the game, although I just started playing too! I wish I could offer you some Laguna advice, but I still can't really do any road races yet. I've driving Laguna in real life, but it was in a Ford F650 tow truck.. so not really applicable besides, most of the laps I've done in real life were sitting backwards on the tow truckI've just started playing iRacing, and I have to say it's to finally be able to play some decent online racing with not so many wreckers. In the rookies I guess there's always going to be a few wrecks. But It's still better than most I've found. I'm currently getting my SR rating up, trying to get it to 4.0 on roads, and haven't really given oval a try yet. Road rating is 3.77, so i'm thinking 4 clean races and i'll get to my D licence.
I'm struggling to find time on Laguna. I've got my lines ok, (at least I think I do) and currently running 1.50's ish, sometimes I brake into the high 1.49's, but the guys that finish first are averaging 1.49's and best laps of 1.48's. It's frustrating me as I'm clean but starting to finish lower than I did earlier on lol.
Looking forward to trying some faster cars later on!
