    Hi everyone,

    after nearly a year of frustration trying to get Oval racing to work on other simulators, I finally booted up AMS for the first time, installed some oval mods, and started driving. I love it, and wish I had started doing this years earlier.

    My problem comes in that my guilty pleasure is racing cars that weren't designed for oval racing and racing them on ovals. This seemed fine on other sims, but AMS is awesome in that it simulates the car bottoming out and even shows you the live ride height, which is how I know that most cars have an "issue" when I take them out of their natural habitat. In protest, they always bottom out on the right side through the corners on the oval - that's the side that takes nearly all the load. I had a look in the setup options for the particular car I was trying - the Super V8, which is pretty similar to the new NASCAR Next Gen Car - but even doing everything in my power couldn't save the car's right side from the asphalt.

    For reference, I deselected the symmetrical setup option, raised the car on the right side and lowered it on the left, made the car super stiff on the right and super not stiff on the left, raised and lowered the tire pressures on the right and left respectively, but all to no luck. I could maybe make it a bit better by further increasing tire pressures and stiffening the anti-roll bars, but I don't know if that's going to help it.

    Thank you in advance to anyone patient enough to read this. Any and all advice in the dark art of setups is appreciated!
