So you are opposed to talking about suspension theory in a thread about suspension settings?

The Toyo R888's are much less precise feeling tire than the PS2's that came on the car.They are a very good track tire however with extremly friendly breakaway and they they are very easy to bring back into the zone once you overdrive them.They heat up quite fast and only started to fall off after about 10 laps.
Having driven on 888s before I didn't have the same feeling. What size tire & rim combo were you using?

Yes I would like to do some data logging but for myself in these conditions the sport setting was faster and much more controlable.
I highlighted the important part above. If you were still learning the car and track then we really cannot use the data. Too many factors changing at once.

My initial response to you was simply to point out that your perception of events (amount the car moved to take a set) was not in line with the real events (its the same sport or normal). For the purpose of showing how unreliable driver feel can often be.
