Yeah it's both good and bad in a way. Great that people can customise and tweak the settings to gain an advantage - much like real life - but it sucks that the base line is so frickin bad. Most road cars handle like my 1979 Corolla. They don't.

I usually youtube or google the track/car combination to get a starting point and honestly I'm useless at setting up myself. I hear about toe in and camber/caster and bump rates and it all falls out the other ear.

I would like to know what setup the current #1 position holder uses tho!

Aye there are many sites that will freely give up better base settings for cars like the PCars Database all of which are great for setting up and tightening your ride. As for custom setups, I like to keep mine close to my chest.

yeah I tried using those. I found the setups for last month total C**p though. It seems the majority are designed for controllers because the moment i tried with a controller as opposed to my wheel, it was like black and white. Completely different.

Same setup with my wheel, and i was all over the place. Just had to tweak my own settings so it played how I liked it to. I haven't had time to jump into this months one. Hopefully can try to catch up on the weekend.
