In racing the cars setup and the data provided by the car after driving can be extremely valuable information to a race team.  We sim racers often take this for granted and click away making changes often unaware of the gains and losses of those changes.  One way that a real life racing team keeps track of this endless amounts of data is by keeping a logbook for each track that they drive.

In this video Shaun Cole of the Simpit shows you his logbook and the type of information he keeps for the DW12 Indycar on iRacing.

Here is a copy of the setup sheet for next season:

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! â€‹Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
