    When racing the Flat6, I'm not using the clutch (have it set to auto clutch), and on upshifts I lift off the gas, and on downshifts I stab the throttle while shifting, and it works great. I use paddle shifters, no H-box here.

    And yes, I understand realism and authenticity, but I also just want to race and have fun.

    It's not how fast you can go, but how long you can go fast!

    There's no H box in the actual car either, so in terms of realism those driving it with H pattern are not on the mark. lol
    It's a sequential dog box, no lifting on upshift required.

    Would be interested in what you guys think but other than slowing you down in a straight line the rear wing doesn't do much, if anything at all. I'm down to a 1. This isn't a complaint, I think the car is fantastic. One of the better RSR's in my opinion.

    After I read this I was curious and lowered the wing from 9 to 1. I definitely noticed a difference, especially at turn 4 and 12, but it was not as drastic as I thought it would be. Instead of going say 50% and 100% on throttle in those corners respectively I was at 10% briefly and got off the throttle for a very short moment in 12 to get the car rotated slightly. I do not think there really was any time lost making those small adjustments and the extra speed down the straight more than made up for getting off the throttle slightly. I was able to carry a lot more speed through quite a few corners especially turn 1. Only problem is that I had to be smoother especially when at high speeds and when I made a mistake or was off my line the car was not as forgiving, but definitely faster overall.

    I also definitely noticed more little slides when the rears lost traction, but they were manageable by just getting on throttle lightly to get some weight on the rears.

    That is pretty much what I thought. There is some effect, but it's not significant.
