They are good to have if you want to try a larry/hanulec setup though as they run those. Their setups tend to be less touchy than mine so if my setup doesn't work for you theirs might.
Thanks for the explanation and help. Droop is the one thing I have a hard time remembering the effects of. I would say, your set up was not bad, I was faster than I have ever been with your set-up, but it did not work for me, too edgy would be a good way to describe it. I think edgy or touchy set-ups probably will produce the fastest car, but if the driving is not right on point, then it will result in slower overall averages. For me, I like a car that is predictable and safe, one that will not punish me for my mistakes, this may be a bit slower of a car for fast laps, but for me, produces a better and faster average.
I came into this car looking for 0.3-0.5seconds, I had my old car set-up to where I could drive it hard for my ability, and my consistency was good with that car, was just not on pace. With your set-up on this new car, my fast laps were only 0.1-0.2sec off pace, I just could not drive it constantly.
This weekend, I tried Hanulec's set-up. Wow, what a difference. The car was planted. I was right on point with the fast guys, in more than one race I posted the same fast lap to the 1/100th! I did leave some on the track, little mistakes add up, but I know I now have the car, just need to work on my consistency. The car with this set-up was a joy to drive, and would not punish me too much for my mistakes, the car would recover quicker, meaning less time lost from a mistake. With a little work on the set-up, and more track time, I think this car will be just what I was looking for.
