    hi just can tell you about my setup .

    after i have learned that there are operations windows regarding the setup - i made the most significant change regarding the springs

    to the opposite to the basic aggressive setup i increased the rear spring rate by ALOT - i generally run now more rear spring rate in the back (except paul ricard - there a little less)

    and in general i keep the spring rates (front and back) close to each other

    wing i run 0
    with ride height front 59 and back 55

    diff around 200

    dampers low speed compression : 7 front and back
    rebound low speed : 8 front and back

    high speed as low as necessary regarding your line over the kerbs - me fairly low - around 2 or 3

    tc i run 3/3
    abs 5

    the increase in rear spring rate helped me alot maintaining my pace over the race length

    my best time is 1.47.0xx

    but i can manage through a race low 1. 47 consistently

    hope this helps

    best regards

    +1 as a general rule for rear spring, slow rear rebound and front ride height as the most significant differences from the official aggressive set-up.

    Where can I adjust spring rate?

    for some reason i can only post here - in other forums i have insufficient privileges ??

    i exclusively drive the 488 - and especially after last update i feel that the especially the AMG is way to overpowered . the acceleartion of the AMG is a joke compared to the ferrari - the porsche too - but the AMG even more - just wanted to express my personal feelings - hence this post - maybe somebody else with enough "privileges" could open a thread?

    best regards

    Isn't that a general problem with the 488, that it's chassis was so well designed for the racetrack, that the engine gets a massive penalty?

    yes sure - but i feel that sth. regarding BOP has changed after the last update - the AMGs accelaration became even more overpowered... just my personal feelings - wanted to see if other people feel the same

    Red Line vs Overboost.
    How do you change your gears?

    I instinctively pushed for overboost but I'm not so sure after reading a bit.
    Also don't trust my judgment: i got the game just for a week

    Hi, I don't feel like going through all the pages and searching "488 gt3 understeer" didn't give any results so I want to know why this car's steering goes way further than the actual feeling of front end grip?

    I'm using a t300rs and whereas in something like a 650s I can turn more than necessary and the front end is still hooked, in this car the steering just gets light and I have to either go slower or reduce input. In general, there are more cars with this trait, just haven't tested all of them.

    I use the Ferrari and Mclaren 720s in two seperate leagues and I can agree - the Ferrari does understeer more than other cars imo. However on Zandvoort as an example I am quicker in the Ferrari than the Mclaren. I assume BoP is the reason, as the Mclaren definitely feels like a better handling car to me.

    I have 150+ hours behind the wheel in the Ferrari and do not find it understeery in general. On the contrary it can be a quite agile car in corners if setup and handled correctly. For me it is much more of a setup thing. Try and play with the differential to find what fits your liking for a particular track. I tend to lower the differential setting a bit (base: default agressive) to produce more rotation on turn in. https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/media/differential-preload-in-acc.57777/

    If the understeer happens mid corner at the apex or just after, then I imagine your issue is too high speed at the apex - possibly getting too agressivly on throttle. Try to go slower to go faster if you follow my point :)

    You can also play around with the aero balance and total downforce of the car. Put more emphasis on the front to maintain grip better. but this of course only works as long as you do not ask too much of the front wheels (speed+turning) and surpass the grip threshold. Also do not sacrifice the rear completely since then you will surely loose it at some point ;)
  13. Its setup
  14. Hey guys from kudos! have you change anything in the non-evo model of the 488? It really seems to me like there was massive change on the aero balance of the car. I needed to tweak the rake of the car of 2-3 even 4 mm on every track. My setup has become super oversteery, and subjet to massive snap oversteer especialy after a couple of lap on 18/19 tire, probably because the rearend wear faster now.

    I felt the same with the evo, but I though it was a new caracteristic of the car, now that I drove the old one again, it really seem like something is new in the aero balance of the car. Its no big deal since I guess I could find back a good balance (and I *think* the car has gain a bit of top speed), but I just wonder if i'm crazy or if anybody else noticed it!

    Thanks! See you guys on track!

    Aris said in his launch day video that he had to re-do the aero on the old 488. That, combined with the new yaw sensitivity for downforce, is probably what you are feeling.

    Hello everyone,
    I'm looking for some advice about driving Ferrari Evo on Suzuka.

    I can't figure out this track. The problem is that Suzuka feels much less grippy than any other track, but the default aggressive setup is literally the stiffest. As a result i feel lack of grip both in the front and in the rear. Softening the rear only seems to make the car slower, while softening the front makes it less stable )) I've done hundreds of laps there, with the best result of 2.01.4 and i've run out of ideas ) On any other track i do not have such problems at all.

    Clearly i do something wrong and i'm looking for some tips ))

    Hi mate,

    Suzuka has a lot of turns in sequence and you need a more flexible car. If you have a setup of spa that works for u, try to use on susuza. If donĀ“t work, try to decrease progressively the front and rear antirol bars

    I am switching from Aston to Ferrari in my next SOP season. They use a popularity BoP, so for any 4 cars chosen it gets a 10kg penalty.
    Aston is popular so already has a lot of ballast so I am going Ferrari but the Evo is already chosen 7 times. I assume it will get a 20kg penalty.
    I am considering taking the original 488 which is ballast free.
    So my question is the old 488 faster compared to an evo with 20kg ballast?
    And is the evo normally really faster or is that countered by the bop anyway?

    Hi David,

    For me, EVO is a bit faster. Maybe 0,5s. But the old Ferrari give me more pleasure to drive.. and even more, the Ferrari GT2 of AC is the most enjoyable car i ever drove ,)
