Hi, I had asked about the suspension setups, and as I had seen the drivers on Twitch, during X-box one runs, they had dirt tires and stock setups-the faster ones. But as Phoenix and a few others have stated the driver to talk to about this is Audisportquattro. And as I witnessed Saturday, he knows his setups. Sadly he also knew the courses. I had been practicing every night for at least an hour, I varied the times, and changed the sequence so I won't get bored. well, i can't really ever get bored of ROAR Rally, but practicing takes its tole. I use the stock suspension setup, and have switched to dirt tires. I have found that I have more traction. As a comparison, I thought a 1:55:649 was a good time on stage one and with the Drift tires I had. I got an official 1:36:048. I also thought sliding around the corners was the way to go, but I have also changed that theory as well.
Bearing in mind i'm a poor racer; sliding around corners and the subsequent tyre squeal rubs speed of your car. You need to be as smooth as possible without undue tyre squeal. Also, if you watch the fast guys back on twitch, it looks like they never brake! Braking obviously scrubs off speed but they come off the gas more than brake. To test this theory, myself and Steve did an unscientific test and ran a couple of the Chiliad Stages without braking. Instead we came off the gas early enough to corner etc and we found we were driving much smoother. We weren't as fast, but with practice, and coupled with minimal braking, this could be a way to actually decrease lap times.

Yeah I have noticed with setups dirt tires and stock suspension setups seem to be predominantly the best overall. As for the breaking and sliding, it looks and feels good when you make a flawless corner, but it does eat up a lot of time. I think the key, like Audi has demonstrated, is to ease up on the gas and try and take the corner as smoothly as possible. I'll say he definitely surprised me with the times he played down
