How to use Calculator

• 1. Select your current practice setup on the left
• 2. Practice Run. Wait for feedback.
• 3. You can choose the feedbacks that correspond to your run.
• 4. Click "FIND NEAREST", and you can get a suggestion setup.
• In just 3-5 steps, you can achieve 99%-100% setups.

How it works

Different setups can lead to different car bias values. A better car setup could result in better performance which could translate to race wins or championships.

This table shows how a difference could affect the outcome.

Technical Details

How do these setups function?

After collecting lots datapoints, we discovered that the resulting error is a linear function. If you shift twice the length, then the resulting error would also be exactly doubled. This is the foundation of the analysis.

First, we normalize the inputs & outputs to [0-1] range. This signifies that the leftmost is reassigned value 0, while the rightmost is now 1.

After much pixel-counting, we finally got this table.

Initial Values

Setup Oversteer Braking Stability Cornering Traction Straights
Left 0.5 0.45 0.2 0.25 1
Initial (. Intermediate). 0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5
Right 0.5 0.55 0.8 0.75 0

Coefficients:

Setup Oversteer Braking Stability Cornering Traction Straights
Front Wing Angle 0.4 -0.2 0.3 -0.15 -0.1
Rear Wing Angle -0.4 0.2 0.25 0.25 -0.9
Anti-Roll Distribution -0.1 0.15 -0.15 0.5
Tyre Camber 0.1 -0.25 0.25 -0.1
Toe-Out 0.2 -0.05

If we move one unit of Front Wing Angle, that would give us 0.4 more units oversteer, 0.2 more breaking stability, 0.3 less cornering, 0.15 more traction, and 0.1 less straight, etc.

Once we had established the relationships between biases & setups, we could calculate the bias for any given setup. After another large number of trials, I discovered that –

(which d represents the difference to the perfect biased)

d = 0.08 is the optimal value

great: d = 0.04

Good d = 0.

Conversion and Converting Back

What if I already possess a desired bias and want to know what I should do?

Technically, the calculation of bias can be based on linear algebra knowledges.
matrix multiplication – [wikipedia.org]

.

Which M =

And we have (** R – Bias Result/S: Setup)

SM = R

The matrix product is invertible, associative, so we could have

SM(M-1) =R(M-1), which means that R(M-1) = S

Since the matrix M
Invertible – [wikipedia.org]

It's easy to calculate the M-1 =

S is a discrete variable in-game. The solution is therefore theoretical and not directly applicable. However, it may give you some basic guidance that requires some fine-tuning.

There is one advantage to being discrete: it allows you to enumerate all possibilities. This is accurate and efficient, as the possibilities are less that a million.

Conclusion

So what?

Because we already have constraints, we are familiar with how these setups work.

The final thing is to choose the right setups among all 952560 possible configurations that meet these constraints.

Pick one and run again. You'd be amazed at how quickly the possibilities are reduced to the perfect one in just 4-5 attempts.

You can also do manual runs and set an original value. This could produce even better results.

Happy managing!
