If you’re looking to crack into the high 44s then you’ll want to minimize the loss of speed in the corners by being as smooth as possible on the steering.

Scrubbing less speed will make you way faster than turning in aggressively and being “dirty” on the steering wheel.

Also, since you take the whole track flat out, make sure that you look for a good draft which is surely going to improve your lap time.

You’ll want to run a negative 4.9 camber setting in the front right, and a positive camber of 5.8 degrees in the front left while the wheel lock can be set at 7 degrees.

You’ll also want a pretty stiff front swaybar around 1.675 since it will help you rotate the car while at the same time not unsettling the rear too much while turning in.
