    Is it normal that tires are too worn out at 80% ?
    doing a lot of practice races at Le Mans with 991RSR GTE and Oreca07, I almost every time hitting the "uncontrollable" barrier when the tires hit 85% or lower. going from fast and stable to slow with alot of trying not to loose the rear.
    My level is 98% AI or so, with 2x tirewear.

    Is it possible to flip the choosing list
    from
    location->track->car
    to
    car-location->track

    maybe skip location, its alot of steps.

    It's normal for the tires to fall off but for that dramatic a swing no...

    Well already got good news. The 68 f1 mod all cars are alike so it will be universal sets. #timesaver

    Yes, it is possible to change the Things.
    As said, it's still WIP.
    The Question is, if the Site will be used, because to spend Hours and Hours, with something that will not be used, makes no Sense at all.
    Especially because my free Time for this Hobby is much more limited now than it was in the Past.
    The first Time when i offered it, a bit of Interest from the Community was there, but not too much and now it seems to be the same.
    The most important People for such a Service are the People that upload Setups, without them there is no Service. ;)
    I will wait some Time, to see how much Feedback there is, on the Forum Site of it.

    I think setup sharing is one of the major forces in pcars. To try out others timetrial to see what works for you.
    Its a shame people in the RF community holds back their setups.
    So I will be one that will happily sharing.

    It would be great if S397 developed a timetrial feature like in pcars. Then those who wanted to share could set times in that.

    But those few months I have been here, I know thats not likely.

    I know, that 1 lap setups in RF will be less useful for races since the tire physics is way better and more delicate, but I think it still could help.

    @redapg
    Here's my feedback
    Just uploaded a setup. It works well, though, graphic wise it could be more appealing/clean in design, but dont have to be fancy.

    And again less choosing options when trying to find a setup.
    One way could be browsing it by tracks, to get a fast overview, and then its not so depending on setup file name.:

    Code:
    24H Le Mans  2018 (45 setups)
     - Oreca (5 setups)
     - Porsche (12 setups)
         - Cup (2 setups)
         - GT3R (5 setups)
         - 991 RSR GTE (5 setups)
              - Thomas (Race, oversteering, dry, 4:01.234)  *** Click to view details
              - Redadg (Race, neutral, dry, 3:55.234)  ***** Click to view details
              - etc.
    
    Uploading options were perfect.
    Maybe describe where to locate a setup above the "select setup", could help.

    So people know this has not been forgotten by any stretch. With the world fighting this pandemic I've had other things going on including homeschooling my son. But I'm still toiling away in the garage for you guys

    Family and real life is always more important then sim racing. Thanks for what you've done so far. Stay healthy, and safe.

    Dude I was actually testing there for a team not long ago in the oreca. I'll see if I can release their setup as part of this production

    Is front/rear wear balanced (even)?
    If its excessive rear wear and then oversteer then look at the setup. (lower rear arb, softer rear dampers or rear springs)
    Even if wear is even the rear end is where you will feel it most as wear kicks in.
    Maybe try for a set that is slightly understeery on new rubber and when the balance changes it will be more neutral on worn tyres.
    One work around is to test on the hardest compound.
    Once you have a set that is optimal mid stint you can play with brake balance during the early part of the stint to move slightly to oversteer when needed, later on move it fwds then add some TCS.
    Edit: take note where the rears are getting hammered. Then consider options with driving technique like short shifting, or ensuring you have straightened up before applying a lot of throttle to conserve the rears. in some sectors a lower fuel mix will also take some heat out of the rear tyres.
    Too much rear camber can also impact rear wear on throttle.
