Tweaking GT3RS Setup

    In the days following the release of the second Porsche pack I remember reading a post where someone was talking about the setup tweaks they made to the GT3RS.

    Being a senile sod; I can remember who it was or in which thread. I do remember mention of reducing the rear aero, changing the toe, and damper adjustments. I have tried searching, but the terms are too vague to get relevant hits. I should have bookmarked it when I read it!

    So to all you setup experts, how do you make the GT3RS better?

    Keep the rear aero, lower the front ride height imo.

    That's one of the threads I trawled through as I was pretty sure it was one of them started by that guy, but alas; I cant find the post I'm looking for :(

    It will show up eventually, or a setup master will take pity on me and give me some sage advice.

    Well it's up to preference and to the track, I usually go +1 on the front ARB, drop the front and the rear to 12 or 13 in height, go max negative camber on the front, -0.3 more negative camber on the rears, the aero is fine as it is stock.Try it and see if you'll like it, haven't gotten in the 7:1x range on the Nordschleife yet unfortunately, need more practice and patience.Have been doing quite a lot of this though :D.

    2/3 wings is the way to go. The car feels weird mid-corner due to AWS. Feels like oversteer is constantly kicking in but it's fine.

    I've not had a chance to try yet.
    Would stiffening the ARB not make the front "less compliant" and reduce the cars willingness to turn in?
    I havent tried it yet so I maybe completely wrong, but from what I have tried to understand of setups, I thought (unless my memory is deceiving me) that stiffer front ARB increases understeer?

    According to this picture it should help to reduce arb if you having understeer in turn in. I have no idea about setups but I found the picture while i tried to learn:

    And one about oversteer:

    I made a point of trying these setting you suggested. Seems promising, well I took 0.7s off my PB at Imola, but I just can't get the front tyres up to temperature.
    I guess reducing tyre pressure at the front will help the temps, but will that alter the handling and if so is there something that could be tweaked to compensate for this?

    Depends on what you like, the setup with 5 rear wing is understeery because of the aero balance, if you like a sharp front-end with less rear grip try the wing at 2-3 settings or play with the alignment (this doesn't work out in its favour all the time though, it depends on the track)

    Third lap on the tourist config I lapped 7:18:300, stock setup.
    Thanks for the set up tips, really curious what my new time is gonna be.

    Saw someone lapping 6:57:xxx, absolute bonkers...

    At the moment I'm trying to get under 7:21, had a 7:21.7 but RSR didn't record it (full layout, not tourist).The car's quite a beauty to drive, but hard to master.
    Can't seem to figure out if I like the car with more roll or less, getting better times with stiffer ARB's, but not as consistent.Such a lovely "road" car :D.
    BTW, drop the rear wing angle, the rear might step out a bit in faster corners, but the car will understeer significantly less, especially through very fast corners.

    Any tips on tyre pressure @Berry ?
    They just dont get warm for me at Imola, how you finding the front temps on the ring as i guess it will be ever harder to keep them warm round the green hell?
    As much as Im not a fan of the ring, Im feeling compelled to try it again.
    Problem is i get bored with it as I dont know it too well once I get past Eddies at the Adenau entrance.

    Go online on Nordschleife Tourist servers. To me its always more fun to have other cars around while driving and sometimes you even meet a guy or two that you can race for fun. :)

    The tyre temps stay perfect throughout the whole Nordschleife run, 74-80 degrees Celsius, I don't think there's much fettling to do there.I think you should run a little more downforce on Imola, but I haven't tested it yet so I'm not sure :).Will do a run later today.Btw, I'm not a setup expert by any means, just giving info on what I like to modify so the car suits my taste.

    Like @kofotsjanne said, try online. It's so much more fun out there when you are not alone.


    Especially after a session restart and there are no wreckers, great fun assured!

    I felt sooo useless a few minutes ago.

    I think I drove one lap on Nords in the GT3 RS after release, but didn't watch the time.
    So I drove a lap on Nords (not tourist), but saw a 8:5x. Sure, I did 1-2 little mistakes and 2 bigger ones that maybe cost me around 10-15s total. I thought where the *** did I lose a whole minute?

    Luckily I still had the replay and checked, I started a practice session and lap time begun at session start... :D which meant somewhere about 7:48, without errors under 7:40. Phheeewwww. :)

    Did my second lap on tourist, 7:16, but not valid, went off before Karussell. :cool:
    Setup what Berry suggested, tyre pressure +1PSI fr. + rear, 100%, 18°C amb. 16°C track.

    Really fun though this combination.

    Had a 7:19-ish lap, downshift protection didn't want to let me shift in the last few corners, redecorated the guard rails.Sighh, will have to try another time, I have to get this beast under 7:20 eventually :D.

    I'll upload a video later, if I don't get a clean lap the former mentioned lap will have to do.

    I think I can get it to about 7:10 to 7:12-ish.

    I'm talking about the full layout btw, hit that one up if you fancy a good challenge :D.Use the red/orange one, it's faster than the purple one.
