    Steam will look for your default install location, don't think you can change that easily. Unless you change the default install location of rFactor 2 from the Steam Client settings.

    If you have an ad blocker/script blocker of some sort disable it for this site. For me it only shows the login steam button when I disable U-Block Origin.

    You are not off, you just know how much time there is to gain around the track. You can improve for sure. Beat them ? No, but not being smoked for sure.

    Several of the fastest guys in our league have no idea how to properly adjust setup. In real life you also have examples like Kimi Raikkonen which in McLaren was known for telling his engineers to do what Pedro Martinez de la Rosa said.
    I know Vettel and Alonso get more involved in this area. Hamilton seems to be closer to Kimi in this regard.

    Learning about setups has more to do with patience and methodology than driving talent. It's an engineering job. It is quite usual here to see people asking for alien setups which might not be the best one. I understand that it is not nice to recognise that big time differences are more likely due to driving skills rather than a magical setup which may give you one second maximum with respect to the default setup.

    on this mod , friend tell me that they have 3s/Lap difference on Donington track between default setup and they setup , and they wouldnt share it because they have past 2 night to do it and they are in an others team and it can be usefull for me to drive with a good setup for my radical champ even if its not for this laptime or this track ;)

    Aliens many, but cheaters more. A couple of screens of an "alien" that he made 1ยด14 "6. Cutting rules do not work well at all and it is essential to organize a time trial championship.

    Actually, other than choosing tracks with better cut detectors, I would prefer time trials to be with mostly fixed setups. As other mentioned default setup maybe quite boo, and knowing that time difference is 99% driving, could be more engaging
