Have any of the R35 owners had there HPC's but the car into "Track Setting" and left it that way...

I've a couple of Track Days coming up, but I don't want to have to pay to but the car into TRACK Mode, and back again after every Track Day...

ALSO, what do I have to look out for when the car is on Track, eg do not let the gear box go over 110 ( I think )....

Also is it fine just to leave the car in factory setting, and drive on the Track even if it does under-steer a wee bit..

Thanks....

Yes it's find to do a track day on road settings. Do a track day and then work out what you do and don't like about the car's handling. You might like it just the way it is.

The only down-side to the track setup is increased tyre wear. Some people have reported that the car understeers too much on the road, so you might actually like the track setup for road use too.

The track settings look "fast road" to me anyway, and I can't see the tyre wear being exponentially worse based on that. It's not like you have -2.5deg of camber!

I don't know anyone who changes between road and track settings though.

They're hardly that different anyway it's 1.4 degrees neg. vs 2 degreed neg. camber, so only a 0.6 deg change.

On a Porsche GT2/3 you can end up going from -1deg to -3deg. which does give a huge impact on wear and grip/handling.

I heard the max camber was 1.6 degrees, but yes I've left mine on track setting for the road and much prefer the extra bite and front-end grip.

If you continuously find the twistiest way to get to your destination, you should find the tyres wear very evenly! :D

It is camber and toe setting front and rear, if I get chance tomorrow (I am in Hungary at the moment) I will pull the settings for track use, but I think that Heinz has posted them in the members section someplace.

Real name is Eddie

There are a few specs but the one for Sports (Max performance) driving on a 2010 car is as follows: (how sad is it that I carry this info around with me)

TP set at 29psi, full tank of fuel

Front camber: -1 degree 40 minutes +/- 10 minutes (both sides to be within 10 minutes of each other, I always go for zero difference and max negative)

Front toe: 0 degress 4 minutes toe in on each wheel

Rear camber: -1 degree 35 minutes +/- 10 minutes (both sides to be within 20 minutes of each other, I always go for zero difference and mid negative setting)

Rear toe: 0 degrees 4 minutes toe in on each wheel

I don't have time to give you more info but will be happy to discusss setting in more detail when I get home at the end of the month.
