iRacing's 'SRF' Spec Racer Ford
Share an easy link:
  • This page started as I was swapping my focus to SRF, it was short lived.
    SRF is nice to drive occasionally as are many cars, the Skip was too much fun to walk away from.
    During 2016s3 I spent a lot of time in Star Mazda (and some time in the Renault) primarily for track selection.
    I've had so much fun in the Star Mazda it's hard to go back to Skip.

    For current SRF information check iRacing's forum.

  • iRacing's SRF forum section includes terrific information.
    See pinned threads including:
    * 12/2015 thread "Update to John Bodin's SRF notes".
    * SRF Setup Shop thread.
    * "SRF Basic Theory about car setup" PDF download (copied for my reference).
    * Adam's Tech Shed SRF Setup Guide - anyone have a copy or new link?
    * "SRF demo laps, videos and replays" thread.
    * Old setups (for all cars) may fail tech without raising ride heights.
    • From 2015s2 release notes:
      - Improved the suspension modeling to account for flexibility of the suspension mounting points.
      This softens the resulting wheel rate of every car by 2-20% depending on the car.
      Car setups are likely to fail tech inspection and will need to have their ride heights adjusted to restore their previous levels, and also may need to have slightly stiffer springs selected to offset the extra flex and to regain desired handling characteristics. Most cars have had some degree of tuning to make sure there are no problems with suspension travel and to make sure enough range of adjustment is available.
      - All of our cars have updated iRacing setups adjusted for these suspension changes.

     * SRF steering wobble discussed in forum thread - Should we sticky a thread about steering wobble?
     * 2015s2 Very interesting SETUP thread, also links to image.   For me: SRF-set on file
