Looking forward to this! Plenty of time for me to practice for once so there’ll be no complaining from me haha. The Supercar isn’t actually that bad round Monza surprisingly, and they’re not far off GT3 times, at least my own lol.

Did some testing the other day to get a feel for the wet. Not sure how my pace is so far with a 1:55 average but feel room for some more time if I can make the car feel a little more planted.
I’m trying to explore tuning a lot more than I ever do to try and really understand how I can get some changes happening for when I don’t like how it’s behaving, and of course to get more pace out of it.
I know there’s setups out there but it’ll be an achievement for me to do and understand myself what I’ve actually done to create the change in pace and feel lol. This wet race is a good chance to really be able to feel those changes.

Do you guys generally go softer or stiffer on the falcon if you tune? I think irl they generally go quite soft...

1:55 in the wet is fast man, i think im sitting at 1:58 atm, timmy 1:56. To be honest man, i suck at car setups, though i tend to go for stiff. It would be a achievement for me to mate, im in the same boat. VIPR FPR VIPR FPR sets his car up completely him self, if he knew how to actually use the forums better, he would reply :D And yes, the car has always been good around Monza in pcars 1, but harder in pcars 2, but pretty stable. Im still using the same setup as last round and the round before. Its maybe a little slow in the wet but extra fast in the dry. Timmy seems to be flying in the dry and wet, i need to do some extra super laps in the dry before the rain sets in lol.

Same as Jordan I think 1:55 is great ;-) I'm also trying to understand different set-ups and doing my own tuning as its super rewarding when you crack a good time. I'm going stiff cause this race will start dry and then move to wet but my thoughts are that a softer set-up should be better in the wet as more mechanical grip should be less prone to sliding. My best has been a 1:50 in the dry and 1:59 in the wet. of note the longer it rains the harder it will get as water will pool around the track. Should be interesting racing.

When testing, I do remember the water, puddles forming. There’s one spot on the track, I can’t remember where, but it effected the car big time to the point I was pulling 2:00+ minutes a lap lol. But that was testing, the laps number is less round 3 than tested so hopefully it don’t get to flooded lol. Also, when it starts to spit rain, you could take the chance of doing a extra fast lap before pitting for wets, I think I pushed for 2 and come undone lol. I have been crook all week and sore. But hoping tomorrow I’ll be up for some practice and work on that wet weather. Also Dave_B Dave_B , I understand where you’re coming from with the set up man.

Racing Jordyn Racing Jordyn Dave_B Dave_B ah okay cool, sounds like everyone is venturing a bit then :). I’ve set mine more up for the wet as that’ll be most likely where I’ll make a mistake, so minimising that with a comfortable wet setup.
The puddles definitely become an issue after a point but manageable before it’s too bad, which I doubt we’ll reach. Just gotta stay away from the kerbs as that’s where they seem to form, notibly Turn 3, exit of 5 at the second chicane, and the Turn 6 & 7 Lesmos and the entry to Parabolica.

Should be fun!

I’m not sure what number corner. But after the main big strait, kinda like the second last corner, that pool of water that got you pubs, I ended up going around it mate. Sorry I’m down town and g2g.
