    GT3 suspension/tire set up.

    How do you stop the front end from pushing out.
    Is there an optimum suspension/spring rate set up? If so what are they?
    Do the tires need to be replaced with Corsos?

    I'm not sure if I'm getting you right. Are you talking about understeer while turning in? If yes just set the anti-roll bar at the rear axle a little bit stronger or try trail-braking.

    To add to what Thomas wrote:

    All things being equal, just changing tire types will not alter the tendency of a car to understeer or oversteer, as the "balance" of the set-up will still be the same.

    Your GT3 has adjustable antiroll bars front and rear.
    Stiffening the rear antiroll bar or softening the front reduces the tendency for the car to push out at the front, or to "understeer".
    Stiffening the front a.r.b. or softening the rear would tend to reduce "oversteer", the tendency for the rear axle to let go first.

    If you haven't explored the possibilities of a.r.b. adjustment yet, you should not be messing with springs, dampers and basic wheel geometry settings.

    You should expect to need to use softer a.r.b. settings all round in the wet than on a dry track. The outer, more highly loaded tires, cannot take such a high lateral force in the wet, as less of a weight transfer is necessary before both the front and rear outer tires let go, resulting in a four-wheel slide.

    Generally speaking, semi-slicks like Corsos would help braking and road holding on a dry, smooth track, but at the expense of wet-road ability. Life is full of compromises.
