    Does anybody keep a list of rear wing settings they like to use at various tracks?

    To the extent it matters, I'm particularly interested in Sebring, Barber, Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen, VIR, the track at the National Corvette Museum, Mid Ohio.

    Your wing settings will be dependent on a lot of other variables such as spring selection and rake and also driver ability. Generally we stay in the 3-5 degree range in the dry. A more advanced driver will get less wing and a more neutral car at high speeds, a less experienced driver will get more wing and a car that tends to push at high speeds.

    Excellent points. I wasn’t considering the relationship between downforce settings and suspension settings. Thanks for the feedback.
