Just to re enforce this. As Pepe mentioned in another post, oAo has an attrition rate of almost 61% historically at Spa and yesterday's D1 race didn't substantially improve on that figure (59%).

So..... PEPE.

I will eat some CROW. I took the default Eagle setup, lowered fuel to 6 US Gallons, and changed the Steering Ratio to 10-1, that's it! On my 4th hotlap, I managed to get down to a 3:19:95. So significantly quicker than the 21 I predicted. So 1.5 sec off my D1 Pole time. I then made a few changes from my previous run. Adjusted tire pressures to get them to Hot optimal, adjusted Camber to get pressures even, made 1st gear longer so tires wouldn't spin out of the hairpin, and increased rear roll bar just like 4 clicks. Finally, changed the ramp angles from 85/30/1 to 85/30/3. I didn't adjust springs, ride height, or anything else. On my 3rd hot lap, I was able to do a 3:18.77. Good enough for P3 in the D1 Grid this weekend. So... You CAN GO FAST with conservative ramp angles. I admit I was wrong...

Hmmm...
I'm thinking that I completely avoided to try the default setup...
