    This is one of the most forgiving (race)cars in AC, in my opinion. So it's surely useful to know more about it in order to race it better :). Thanks to AC forum user Epistolarius, (and to BMW, of course), here is some great reading material. I am sure that after browsing through, the next stop is your cozy cockpit for some laps in AC. Write below if happens :D. I know it will for me.

    And a small guide for better setup tinkering:

    Funny bit - but this is where we all need to start :D

    Handling problems, car or driver?

    Many handling problems can be attributed to driver errors, especially for new or inexperienced drivers. It can be difficult without data logging to determine if a handling problem is Set-up or driver related. Below is a list of clues where to look first when handling problems occurs:

    • If a problem is inconsistent, it is likely driver related
    • If a problem occurs at every similar type of track section, it is likely Set-up related
    • If a problem is either on left or right turns only, it is likely Set-up related
    • If a problem is at one turn only and not at any other similar turn, it is likely driver related

    NOTE:
    The documentation concerns the 2016 version of the car.
    I am not sure which version we have in AC. In any case, lots of principles apply.

    ..and in order to avoid that the above link also becomes obsolete, I have attached the pdf to the first post.
