Still a good 3 to 4 seconds to take off that time. But racing soft tyres are a must, give you way better grip than anything else.

Normal GTI is the way to go though, instead of the Cup cars.

I found the soft tyres get hot too quickly. Saying that I didnt have the full LSD when I tried with them.

You use alot of negative camber, I'm gonna give that a go tonight. See what I can come up with, I reckon I can take about 3-5 sec off easily just removing a few errors but I don't think I'll get anywhere near your time!!

John I tried a lap with exactly the same settings as you then tweeked a couple things and even with an off managed to better my time by

nearly 5 seconds. Can't remember exactly what I changed but I think I fully stiffened both arbs, changed the gearing for a top speed around 160ish and changed the brake balancing heavier to the front. Nowhere near as much camber as hipwell though so I might try that next!

Managed a 7:46.1 tonight. Still keep having a huge off at the same corner every time, if I can avoid that I reckon it'll be good for a 7:38.

Really struggling with the soft tyres, can't get the suspension set up as good as it was on the medium tyres.

Taken another 3 seconds off my time, but not finished having a go yet

You boys must be having a few days off! When I get off work I'll be back in the tuning sessions, looks like my 206bhp ain't cutting it!

Soft tyres are better, they don't seem to wear doing time trial runs just like the fuel doesn't go down does it?

Oh no, you can put a rear wing on the GTI. It's going to make it fly! :lol:

Nice time Al, especially in the Cup Car, you got a normal GTI to use? You will be able to get into the 7.40's.

I think i'm at a disadvantage at the mo as my time was from a standing start in a lupo race! So i'll have to do a warm up lap and then a hot lap!

For the love of god I haven't seen one Gti come up in the used car sales. I have the Cup car though. :coffee:

Whats your User ID? I'll send you one the next time one comes up in my used car thingy... I seem to come across them all the time!

That's a Normal Lupo GTI that one Matt. Just painted it a nice Sunflowery Yellow to make it stand out! :) It was going to be Sepang Bronze, but the 'Brake dust' coloured wheels wouldn't go with it :(

Pete, My 8:32 was in the Lupo Cup race also. :)

Grrr!! I fitted the wing and managed a 7.41 but shot wide on karousel and invalidated my time!!! I'll keep working on it but need to calm down abit, gonna try fiddling with the camber I think, got 1.5 front and 3 on rear, might loosen the roll bars up too, although I like it a bit twitchy!

I find that if its too stiff you get a load of understeer when you put the power on, if its a bit softer this seems to be a bit less.
