    I am looking for a direction as to where to go with tuning for qualifying setups. Generally if find the car better with a softer than default suspension for race, but I am trying to improve on my Q time.

    Any suggestions?

    On the occasions I remember to do so in the first place, I just change the gearing as any 'draft room' is unnecessary and the longest straight may be negated by the standing start and/or finish line. If I change the handling for the better as I do Q runs it usually stays that way for the race or at least until I practice more.

    My overall goal when tuning is to even tire wear. I play with things as I try to reach that goal, and sometimes I find a tune that is a bit faster, but eats tires. On those occasions, I'll use the tire eating but slightly faster tune for qualifying, then switch to the wear evening tune for the race.

    I've been tuning my cars conservatively. Just focusing on tire wear and not Q'n speed. I don't spend to much time on my Q set-up or runs just because i know i can (not always) work my way up the field with consistent driving. I feel that if i have a stable car I can keep it on the track easier and thats what really matters overall, keeping it on the track.
