What do you mean by seems slower? If all of your settings are exatly the same you shouldn't feel a difference until you adjust the min throtle and min brake settings. If the track layout is the same what are your lap times with 212 compared to 208?

i haven't adjusted the min throttle and brake settings yet, what should they be ? The punch feels the same though, it just feels like the car has less top end now and i'm about 2-3 tenths off my old lap times .

Are all of your settings and gearing exactly the same? If you know how much time you're losing per lap I assume it's safe to say that the track layout is the same correct? Is this aspahlt or carpet or off road? If it's on road turn the min throtle to 30 (better punch) and for the top end you can either bump up your turbo or gear up one. Are you getting pulled on the straight?

Your gearing should not change from 208 to 212. More turbo would give you more top end. I would reccomend sharing your speedo setup if you can and maybe we can try to fix it that way.

The tires have one race day on them . This is carpet, so they don't really wear .

It's the default setting when I download the software .

Ok, they are not the same tires then are they the same compound? What I am getting at is if it is not the speedo, there are other things that can cause a drop in performance. A failing bearing in car or motor, binding suspention from impact, a battery starting to go soft, tires etc......
