    I made a breakthrough!! I stumbled on someones forum comment about the cup car working well with the lowest tire pressures.
    I went back to the default setup, took the tires down to 16 psi on the left and up just a click or two on the right side to equalize pressures as they heat up.
    Took all the front negative toe out and added one click of wing. I also moved the brake bias even more to the rear.The car feels so much more drive able, over steer is easily managed.

    Update: I made the right side camber -4.8 to get more heat into the outside of the tire

    Ok, I retract my statement from May16th. After a month of testing almost daily I was really getting frustrated that even though I could get a good lap in here and there, I was still struggling to handle the car through a 30 minute session. I went back to this thread and followed the setup shared by Paul Mc C almost to the letter. https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?threads/porsche-cup-ai.64187/
    The setup is on page 3, post # 47.I hesitated to use it for a long time because it is for another circuit, try it, its pretty flippin decent!
    I haven't tested anywhere else in a while, but for Sebring here are my changes to Paul's setup.

    Sebring base setup=
    Front 0 toe, 5 arb, tires 22.8L 23.1R psi, 3.5 camber
    Rear .234 toe, 2 arb, tires 21.5L 21.9R, 3.5 camber

    I messed around with camber for a good while before I settled on 3.5 front and rear. I had been trying to get even tire temps L to R side with asymmetrical camber. The grip is pretty good on the outlap and about lap 3 or 4 you can really feel it starting to work for you.

    So in a FURTHER update the g27 I've been using for a decade has been retired in favor of a t150 with a set of t3pa pedals and a th8a shifter. So....ya boi done got it stepped up. Getting used to the wheel then back at it. Add to it I've got a 24 hr at LM in iRacing coming up and I'm busy lol. Considering personal life has been shakey this is a welcome distraction.

    Hello, do you happen to have any setups for the oreca 07, preferably at le mans. The setup file I found on the site mentioned before in this thread was empty and did not contain any information/text. So if anyone has something, that would be wonderful. Thank you in advance!

    Oh that would be great! Will the race you been doing be streamed anywhere to watch by chance? I know of the official one in rF2 but not of the iRacing one.
