    hi all
    I’m just asking about car setups and how much faster they make you
    I normally run with safe setup or aggressive setup but I’m not seeing much time difference

    Does setting your car up make much of a difference, as in mp I can qualify about mid table ish and I feel that I’m pushing the car hard as I can, and the top time is about 2.5 sec faster than me

    Would a set up make them that much faster or is it just damm good driving

    In ac I would qualify in top 5 ish without changing or messing with setups

    Yes! Set-ups can make you faster. More importantly though, they can make the car more comfortable and predictable to you on race laps. ACC has decent stock set-ups, but once you dial a car in it’s hard to go back.

    I agree setups do help but it’s one of those things you have to figure it out on your own. I personally never really touch bump stop and whatever else because I don’t understand it, but having good air pressure and making sure the brake ducts are open enough for whatever track your on seems to help me a lot. Also not over driving the car is a big key factor I find as well.

    I’m probably no help but just my 2 cents.

    Default setups are already great. I usually practice about an hour without too much change, trying to be at 2s of best laptimes.

    I then change it just to fine tune some corners where I need more or less understeer / oversteer or downforce. I can generally find about 1s when I have it right.

    I usually am 1s slower than best laptimes after tweaking it but the last tenths I can get to be in that second are always due to my driving and extreme focus, not the setup.

    If you are pushing too much you will loose a lot of time. I suggest you to push less and focus on your line, corner speed and acceleration to improve.

    Kunos have made a really good job on physics and setup tuning IMHO. In other sims I can really completly change the car behavior and sometimes gain several seconds with extreme setups which is not real. Here you can't do that, just fine tuning, keeping the car behavior more consistent. I used to praise rF2 physics but now it's ACC to me, no doubt.

  6. I find the biggest reward from them is consistency, and potentially tire wear if you know how to set up for that.
    The defaults are fine, but if you feel the driveability could be improved, change some things around.
