Gentlemen i had i a great day ive finally got a setup that i can replicate and drive, thanks to all the help from the crew here, specially Patto. 3rd meet for me running the G4s and the mugens are allready starting to feel the heat im loving it. Today wasnt without its dramas im still kicking myself for letting a mugen through with 3 corners to go, i thought it was the leaders car (similar paint scheme). Ahh well sometimes it doesnt pay too be a nice guy

Dude no prob. Oversteer is when the rearend is loose and wants to try and spin out when you turn. Understeer is the opposite when you try and turn but the car takes the corner wide and can't steer sharp. It acts like it want to keep going straight. So:

Oversteer has lack of rear grip

Understeer has lack of Front grip

This is a good question, because the balance is what we are looking for. We want to take corners nice and fast, but without spinning out (when the rear end swings out). But at the same time, we want enough steering so we can take corners fast and sharp enough for all the corners on the track. If you have too much understeer then you we be taking the corners too wide causing you to have to slow down too much and get off line. You won't be able to hit your Apex properly or consistanly.

Almost every adjustment on your car is to help you find that good setup to achieve that balance of oversteer and understeer. Some drivers prefer a little understeer because it is easier to drive compared to a little bit of oversteer.
I hope I made sence here bro, because I am quite tired and still zoned from my cold. Ask away if you need more details. Later!
