Mate my two cents worth would be don't get to hung up on setups. I've been trying a few different setups for Silverstone and I can basically drive all three with the same times and like Steve said the aggressive set ups are competitive. As for everyone driving off on you bro don't stress. I did my first sim racing in seaaon4 and I spent the first 5 races way down the back each week before I felt like I could keep up but the guys here are fantastic. No one gets into for being slow and people do help where they can, there's no big egos here which is great. And the racing is respectful, clean and everyone gives racing room. Much better than public servers. If you turn up each week you'll make gains. My biggest gains still come from driving technique rather than tuning. I think consistency is key because when you look at where some guys finish, with a slower best lap, they are ultra consistent and mistake free. I'm still down the back of the field myself and I'm my own worst enemy ATM so I'll probably see you back there if that's where you find yourself.
