Controlling how much lateral load is transferred on the front versus rear axle is a balancing act, to optimise how much grip is available at each axle. I like the direction they are headed and since I’ve never been so serious that I want to have lessons it doesn’t bother me. In most cases the additional weight due to the added fuel is bringing the car ‘out of tech’, which means it’s too close to the ground and isn’t legal to race. If you are part of a team, there are some nifty tools for team communication and sharing files such as setup or replays. The nature of the track would typically determine the baseline you start tuning from. VRS makes it easy to learn from team-mates, e.g. What i find challenging about this is no matter how many laps and hours I put in, I can seem to get anywhere close to +2-3s off the pace. I started iRacing Season 2 Week 11 then jumped to F3 at the start of the season. This impacts the mechanical grip of the car, because it changes the center of gravity. And in a later article we’ll look more closely how to approach dynamic ride heights. I use Craigs setups for really anything...LMP1, GTE, HPD, Porche Cup etc. ), Hidden Feature in the iRacing Simulation: DriverHeadHorizon, Hidden Feature in the iRacing Simulation: DriverRotateHead, How to Automatically Set and Save the Correct Force Feedback For Each Car in iRacing, How to Change the Head Rotation Look Angle in iRacing, How to Disable Automatic Fast Repair, Tire Changes, and Fuel Fill in iRacing, iRacing Dirt Street Stock Driving Techniques, Logitech G27 Calibration and Settings for iRacing, Logitech G29 and G920 Calibration and Settings for iRacing, Thrustmaster T500RS Calibration and Settings for iRacing, How to Install, Configure, and Use Discord, How To Fix Discord Installer Errors on Windows, How to Install and Configure rFactor and Modifications, Logitech G27 Calibration and Settings for Dirt Rally, Logitech G27 Calibration and Settings for rFactor. So, finding the optimal spring rate is a matter of finding the right trade-off between the above effects, which is often a compromise. The open diff presents challenges in low traction conditions. I then decided to sign up for Craig's Setup shop so I have both setups and tutorial videos on hand week on week. In this article we’ll explain what ride height entails, how you can adjust it, and how it affects other setup adjustment. Aerodynamics will cause the ride height to change. Adjust these properties until your achieve the desired measurement for ride height. The Skip Barber, as a non-downforce car, can be driven with the same pressure at practically every track. splitter, tire, etc) and its vertical offset, the ride height as measured in the garage (and as reported in telemetry) does not necessarily equate the actual ground clearance. For example, a bumpy slow track like Sebring could need softer springs. One of these tools is car setup. Then we’ll move on to the Formula Renault 2.0 which offers a lot more setup options. The regulations allow the FR2.0’s ride height to be very low, as a consequence you can run the stiffest front springs and still achieve your desired front ride height. Thanks for the thorough reply. We recommend you take either of these for a spin on low tyre pressures, so you get familiar to the feeling of too-low tyre pressures. From the Skip Barber, we progress into a faster and more complex car: the Formula Renault 2.0. I think it was Week 3 or 4 when I decided to give VRS a shot, did the Dedicated only to F3. In short, it pays for itself with the logic above. Consequently, there may not be enough torque going to the tire on the grippy surface, so acceleration would suffer. the BMW Z4 GT3 has it’s tank fairly far back in the car), setting the race fuel ride heights could be trickier. A completely open differential allows the left and right tires to rotate entirely independently. He’s a solid dude.
