Ill start my first testing tonight... could you give me any directions for the setup base (Indy, Pocono) and bearing for adjustments... E72

thank you!

The other thing to consider besides the rule changes -- Michigan may look like a copy of Texas, but there is an important difference: the banking at Texas was 22 degrees, at Michigan it is 18 degrees.  So that will also affect how much wing is needed in the turns.

I'll be there. Unfortunately, i'll have very little time to practice. I asked my girlfried if she'll marry me (the one who is fine with my obsession for virtual/model/real cars Cool ), she said YES, so we're going to her parent's place to ask if they approve Wink I'd be grateful if somebody shared a setup for Eagle 72. If someone is willing to, pls let me know, thanks in advance.

I have uploaded two setups to the website, both created by Bob Wilson. Bob says these are good baselines for Eagle 72 drivers to work from.  One qualy set, one race set.

You need the "C" patch I believe. See the rules section.

Thankyou Jason. I did consider that, but appears to be posted before Indy which I raced in.

No, the "C" patch came after Indy.  The post has been edited.

Bob you want the superspeedway Low Drag configuration.

If you're asking about specific wing settings, thast whatever you feel comfortable with.

Quick question,

What's the Pit Procedure? I'm asking because the Apron through 1 and 2 isn't really wide enough for a car.

Keep on the apron until you hit the turn 2 exit, then you can blend up into race traffic

Fade to the left briefly on the backstretch to signal your intent to pit.

But does one have to go below the white line at the end of the back straight or can I go from the racing surface straight into the pitlane?

No, you just need to signal by fading left on the back stretch (if there is a car behind you)

Just to confirm. If I'm practicing on the server, isn't it forcing me to use the correct wing? Which file do I inspect to confirm that is so for Mich?

To be absolutely sure, select the Superspeedway Low Drag chassis configuration.
