Hello guys, I've a question about the car.

I've tried the car in Spa, but the car is very difficult to drive.
Lot of oversteer at the beginning of the corner and lot of understeer while doing the turn.

Do I need only more practice or I'm missing something?

This is a very difficult car to drive! When we last drove this in a series i really struggled with it, i think i started reducing the cambers to try and gain some grip by increasing the contact patch, and increased front toe, but really i think its just practise as default is apparently a real setup.

Unlike most of the cars in R3E The Cup car doesn't have pre-heated tyres and so will take a few laps to get up to temperature. Also it's a Porsche  Wink so transferring all that weight from the back to get front end grip is tricky. Slow in and fast out is a good place to start from and be patient getting the power down at exit of long corners such as Pouhon and Stavelot.

Out this Sunday so won't be racing, in fact I am probably going to miss most if not all of these races. Not too bothered though, never been able to drive Porkas.

Not likely to get back from Anglesey Circuit (The real one) in time, so will probably miss it, and I too am rubbish
with Porkas.

its race day, first round of the Porsche cup series!

Practice Server is up and running

Has anyone got any setup tips for these porkas, all I have done so far is decrease the rear wing to try to reduce understeer and get a better balance, but it is still a real handful under braking for eau rouge

On default the car is way too unpredictable for me, so dropped the camber down to around -2/ -2.5 and the car feels a bit more planted and doesnt want to kill me into every corner. Only way to drive is to be gentle and smooth it seems.

Hello guys,
this evening I can't join the race because is in progress a raceroom update of 14Gb...

The last time I used raceroom was some weeks ago. I'm sorry

Just tried the car and it feels much more of a handful than I remember it being. I softened the front arb and stiffened the rear, dropped the wing a notch or two, but also reduced negative toe-in. Still feels a handful. I'm not sure there's much can be done to radically change it with the setup, it's more a case of adapting your driving to get the best out of it, which is not at all easy. It has a narrow sweet spot, and with a high chance of ending your race if you make a mistake - front end impact destroys the rads, and rear end destroys the gearbox. Hope some of us make it to the finish..

That turned out to be a lot of fun, with good racing for the lead throughout, until with 10 minutes to go my car suddenly snapped right at Pouhon whilst close behind John. I've looked at the replay and see I got a front wheel just a little on the kerb, but I still don't know why it did that.. Didn't end my race, but I did lose my front splitter and couldn't do much after that. Enjoyed those 30 minutes though!

Congrats John and GT.
