If you have any good tips, I'll take them gladly.
It's basically a straight choice between driving absolutely flat out and doing the stop or driving as fast as the next porsche thats 1 stopping. My advice is if you are 1.5 second a lap faster or more by driving flat out do the stop - if you take new tyre's you can use a softer compound and make easy work of everyone who's on worn rubber later in the race. Or just take fuel and make it a splash and dash, although your late race pace will suffer.
Of course i goes without saying that if you want to stop its absolutely critical your not stuck behind a car that's not stopping at the start as every lap will count. After all if i have a car thats planning on stopping behind me and i'm not my car will get VERY wide as the rule's allow :p
As things usually play out with this game it should be pretty much even at the finish whatever of the 2 strategy you use. I find fuel saving isn't my thing and if i used the porsche would do the stop - it make's the race challenging later on. But it's up to you!
For fuel saving make the car have as little drag and rolling resistance as possible - so use low wing settings, less toe, camber and castor, reduce your rev limit and drive easier, especially on down shifts.
