How do the changes to the setup affect the car?

How about small changes like adding half a pound of pressure on the right rear? Does it make a noticable difference to the feel and lap times?

Lastly,
Have you seen and/or felt the track rubber up and if so did the car tighten up for you?

Thanks in advance for answering these questions whenever you get around to it. I appreciate it.
Ok...just checked on how effective changing certain settings in the set-up are, and changes can make a huge difference. I played around with tire pressure, wedge adjustment, and camber, and some changes were very subtle, while other changes made dramatic differences. It's very nicely done.

I also want to test a theory about having less cars on the track, and real-time damage being adminstered in stronger cosmetic application. It could be just a coincidence, but here is a pic taken in real time, with only 5 cars on the track, at Bristol......

Can you change paint schemes of the existing cars, or only the create a car?

The force feedback is very well done. It's strong, but reacts well.

You cannot paint over, or change existing paint schemes.

Thanks Blue for checking out the set-ups. That is great news. Just like cautions breed cautions...answers to questions lead to more questions.

I was wondering how temperature would affect the car. In other words do you think we will have to make a different setup for Bristol day and Bristol night for example?

Guess mine didn't post...here it is again. Thanks in advance

I've read through every post and didn't see this question, which for those of us who'll be in leagues may want to know.
Like in NASCAR 09, when you go online to race, is there an option to practice with those in the room before the race to test setups, practice lines, etc...?
I heard for NTG 11, you go online, create a race, load your setups, qualify and race...no practice. I hope this isn't true. Thanks

I remember reading the devs saying they had to take surface temps out.

No idea yet, as I was able to go online, but it could not create a lobby. All it said was "error-cannot create lobby ar this time" or something likte that

Ah, probably because the game's not out yet. Didn't think of that. Thanks Blue. Guess I'll just have to wait and see unless you get lucky to join a race somehow
