Ginetta G40 - Oulton Park International

After spending all morning tuning this car, I am rather happy with how it as turned out.

My best lap so far was a 1:58.240, which on the PC leaderboards would be good enough for 20th place.
If I can string a perfect lap together I will be able to get into the high 57's.

Tyre pressures were set in light cloud conditions.

As usual all feedback is very welcome.

I forgot to mention that time was set on the pc, so the tune transfers over very well

Edit - just ran it on the Xbox and I was doing mid 01:57

That's some offset on front tyre pressures

Front left is always far hotter than the rest, so just trying to keep the heat even on all 4 tyres.

Guess it might be something like that, but looks a lot more normal now that the pressure is 1.3 rather than 1.8.

It also handles a lot better under brakes.

Nice tune DM

Had to drop tyre pressures to 1.22 front and 1.20 rear but managed a 1:56.708 which is good enough for 16th on the PC leaderboards. Reckon with the perfect lap I could get into the 55's.
