    That's correct. A suggested delta value of -0.5 means half a degree more negative than your current setting.

    But it doens make sense. If you have minus 3.5 and you need to take 0.5 it should be minus 3.0?
    I'm so confused sorry

    If you have a camber of -3.5 (negative) and the tool suggests a change of -0.5 (also negative) after some more laps, it's -3.5 - 0.5 = -4.0 Because the app tells you to go even more negative.
    If the tool suggests a positive value, then you're running too much camber (i.e. too much negative) So for example -3.5 + 0,5 = -3.0

    Hope that doesn't confuse you even more...

    Thanks man. I think that makes sense. It the part of being negative that confused me. Sorry for all the questions. Thanks once again

    I'll do serious test. Very interesting.

    In my first try with BMW M6 at Road America, after 5 laps, close to 25Km so, the tool sugest me some changes in cambers but no changes in tyre pressures. Was my tyre pressures already perfect ? (not a base setup, I was working on this for a while) Or is not working ?

    I'll give feedback soon

    This is quite possible: if the temperature in the middle of the tread is exactly half the difference between inside and outside temperature, the pressure is perfect. But if the difference between inside and outside is not big enough, the tool suggests more camber. After this change, however, an adjustment of the pressure may be necessary...

    As Oli already said, this is possible. Seems you already made a good job.

    I am looking forward to your feedback.

    This is a game changing app. It resolved my tire temp issues during longer races.
    Just works perfectly for me and fully unlocks potential of asymetric corrections.
    Not to mention how much time it saved.

    Thank you.

    I use VR myself. But sadly the overlays are not shown in VR.
    You can toggle the monitor view so raceroom is shown in VR and on screen as well. This way you can drive im VR and make the changes on your screen. The overlays appear on your computer screen as well.

    I am not sure. May be I‘ll find a way, but at the moment I don‘t know how to bring the overlays to the goggles.

    He uses the web overlay which can be activated with a start parameter for raceroom. This is completely different from what I‘ve done and I assume that you can only activate one overlay.
    Otterhud is definitely too good to replace it with what my overlay would show.
    And additionaly it is only shown when on track at least as far as I know.
