It's not going to make a huge difference unless you are very very fast. Better Together Infinite Snowball Farm youtube. The point people are making is find a setup and learn to drive, not worry about a perfect setup each week. There are several times where I've hit a wall on improving my times until I go in and change tire pressures and all of a sudden I'm getting green deltas again. Is this true, or could I get by just downloading setups for the most part? News Release Notes 2019 2018 2017 2016 Scheduled Maintenance None at this time Official Schedule Setup Guides Popular Sites Popular YouTube Channels Leagues Want to race against fellow redditors each week? Promotions New Memberships Currently 50% discount on all new membership packages as standard. It makes a difference in lap times of 2 tenths at most.
But in my opinion, in this car it's better to find a good-enough setup then spend your free time practicing rather than changing setups. Go to the proprietary iRacing forum, say things like the above, , and tell us how that goes for you. Most setups are not faster than another. Thank you for watching my Minecraft on. I also run very high pressures on the right and lower pressures on the left. Getting the right tire pressure for the track and temperature is what will shave tenths off your time. Hence my response of an acronym.
The only setup option that you really notice is brake bias: if you set it too low 52% or lower for example the car is more likely to spin under hard braking. . It's another kind of it. There is very little time to be gained from any settings aside from something that's so far out of whack it's just slowing you down. That being said it's probably a good car to mess around with the setup a little bit just to see what everything does and work on your knowledge, once your comfortable with the car. So if there is something that you would like to see on a t-shirt or one of the many items they have available for branding feel free to. There's a big placebo effect when it comes to setups - some very fast Skippy drivers have done tests where they were within a tenth no matter what they changed on the setup within reason.
Also each week, folks give setups in the 'this weeks race thread'. It's honestly right up there with one of the dumbest claims I've ever seen in this subreddit. His claims are subjective blanket statements. Not everything is up there at present, but more list items will go up as people request things. I thought it was stickied. There are minor differences when you make adjustments, but it doesn't give you an advantage like an oval car would, it's more just fine tuned personal preference. Thank you for watching my Minecraft on.
The two or three of you responding are wrong. The setting options change very little, except for maybe tire pressure. One thing that really matters is tire pressure. You can afk and it will automatically allow you to breed up turtles and collect the scute once they've grown up and al. On occasion I forget to switch back to my normal symmetrical setup on the road, or I forget to use my oval setup on the oval. Take a setup and use it on every track, it works.
If you feel otherwise, go to the official iRacing forum to humble yourselves. You can only change 5 things, which makes it very approachable. Because I am a capitalist whore I love all of my readers so much that I want to offer you the finest of print-on demand t-shirts, and other items, for your holiday needs. When I ran it I just grabbed a setup off the forums and basically ran it the whole season. There is very little time to gain from setups. Here are some doors you should know how to build! Tire pressure makes a bit of difference but some guys run 20, others run 17 and both are competitive.
While none of the other settings on the skip really matter, tire pressure can. You can afk and it will automatically allow you to breed up turtles and collect the scute once they've grown up and al. Which was a change I picked up from the forums. Regardless, one area where I really suck is with setups. For the Skippy, there's a great , explaining what each setting does.
The Skippy is the ideal car to start to understand setups. I never change my pressures. That's what is said everywhere. You can also just grab any setup though and use it for the entire season. Despite playing sims for years now, I know nothing about them and I was disheartened but not surprised to see the Skippy was an open setup series. And this guy clearly only talks about the skippy, dude. I still can't build my own complete setups I need a start , but I'm learning as we go.
I'm not arguing with you, as everybody has a different approach. Like someone else mentioned you pretty much use the same one for every track. And I had to watch them multiple times to pick up little details. Lots of Merch from the Mind of Skippy! It's so stupid that it's not even worth arguing. Setups are so overwhelming that you just have to accept that you're going to suck at it for a while.
None of you are going to win this argument. The Skippy settings are not personal preference. Most setups are not faster than one another, just react differently to inputs that you deal with according to your driving style. It's as close as you can get to a fixed setup without being fixed, that's how little the setup matters. It's hard enough to stay on track when you first get promoted and get into that liftoff oversteering death trap.
