Qualifying ------------------ Best 4 lap average: 39.196 (39.267/39.177/39.170/39.172) Keys to qualiying: -Aim to arc the car through the corner, scrubbing the tyres as little as possible - smooth is speed! -You'll want to run slightly below the white line in the corners, avoiding the curbs/apron. -Run flat out through the pit-exit on your outlap, it is crucial to your lap 1 time (as per the replay/telemetry).
This setup requires no in-car adjustments and is meant to be a starting point to improve - it is very stable and the wear over the 4 lap run is barely noticeable with laps 2/3/4 all being at optimal grip.
------------------ Race ------------------ #1 priority at the Indy 500 is to reach 500 miles! Your race line in clean air is the exact same one as you run in qualifying - maximise your speed by driving as smoothly and accurately as possible. In the dirty air you'll need to be extremely patient, protecting both your tyres and your car. To manage dirty air, lift before the corner and try to position the car slightly offset from the traffic infront. In-car adjustments: At your disposal you have the following adjustments: -Weightjacker: the WJ allows you to add or remove crossweight more ++ WJ = more rotation, more -- WJ = less oversteer. -Anti-roll bars (ARBs, front/rear): Adjusts the front or rear anti-roll bars from 1 (soft) to 6 (stiff).
WJ use in the race is recommended to help with traffic (going more positive) when needed, but it is advised to limit adjustments to within 2 clicks at a time. You may need to use negative WJ in clean air, depending on the track temperature at the time. This setup does not have a rear ARB attached and as such the rear ARB adjustment is unavaliable. I do not reccommend adjusting the front ARB from 6, but lowering could help with entry understeer.
Package includes; setup file (.sto), fast lap file for ghosting (.blap / .olap), replay (.rpy) and driving notes to get the most out of the car.
