Simulating the F8x in iRacing

Using the newly released M4 GT4 as a base, has anyone tinkered to try to emulate the F8x chassis? I know this is far from an exact science, and I'm still a noob to iRacing so haven't really done anything in terms of non-fixed setups in general.... but cranking back the camber and adjusting toe a bit as a start?

Anything else folks have tried?

Thx

no nothing will translate to the race car or the street car. just drive it and learn to be smooth. i prefer GT3 or GTE cars myself. cannot stand GT4 class haha

use asseto corsa OG, look into getting the custom shaders patch and sol. you can find a lot of BMW m2 cars for download around the web.

I have found some m2's and my local track. Its great experience, even though i'm 10 seconds faster on sim than i am irl.

I found simulators completely useless other than to learn a track, however, after much trial and error we finally have a car in Asseto that behaves like our track car. Hard slicks, dusty track setting, no aero, 200kg of ballast, full fuel tank, 70% power. That car handles very much like our actual car.
With this setting we get some actual benefits from the sim, like trying new lines etc.

Before this it was absolutely and completely useless, as I don't drive a M4 GT3 etc so there's little to learn from being fast with them in a sim.

iRacing just doesn't translate for me. The R8 LMS confirmed it for me. Race spec cars are just way too different and way too stiff to compare.
