Established in 2009, RT sought to do one thing and one thing only: provide some of the best quality tunes for any purpose. Our work quickly took to fame as whenever someone needed a helping hand, even if our services weren't immediately available, word of mouth passed our work on and before you knew one of our best pieces of work was featured in official capacity. Now, new for 2011, we will continue to strive for and achieve the basic goal of providing quality in a timely fashion. To meet all circumstances, to provide an experience that only we know how to. At Renown Tuning the customer is never dissatisfied. We at RTU are very passionate about the work done and we consider almost every factor that would make for a better, grippier, and not to mention smoother driving experience; every tenth, hundredth, and thousandth of a second matters here and when looking through the vast selection of available tunes you can rest assured that everything was put into making that tune as good as we can possibly make it. Every tune will be tested, criticized, and revamped until it is a standard in which other works will be based upon. Want more? Don't hesitate to take a peek and register for our in-house racing competition. You won't be disappointed. World Tour Competition, Season 3 As usual we encourage constructive feedback so long as it's civilized, otherwise it will simply be disregarded. All tuning profiles will constantly be updated as certain demands will never remain the same, and we will be accepting individual requests and when making that request we ask that you be as specific as possible so the tune can meet your every expectation and thensome. User requests can be made available to everyone or specifically for the person requesting our services. Now, onto the good policy standards you all should be familiar with. What goes into testing and how does Renown Tuning test vehicles? Our official test track is London River, all of the RT-Spec vehicles are driven hard around every corner, whereby oversteer, understeer, body roll and braking are carefully monitored and evaluated according to such solutions as... - How much countersteer is needed to maintain the vehicle's orientation? - Is the overall braking distance satisfactory? - Is the suspension capable of absorbing bumps without bottoming out as a result? - Are the aerodynamic properties satisfactory without severely hindering the cars performance? What constitutes as a 'good' lap time? - Depending on the vehicle the times will vary from car to car. However, a general rule of thumb is a good lap around London River with any vehicle is typically less than 1 minute, 30 seconds. How long does it take for a vehicle to qualify as being 'RT-Spec'? - Again, it can vary from one car to the next. Some are a lot easier to tune than others, some only require minimalist effort while others require time and concentration. The standard waiting period for any tune to be stocked is within 24 hours, unless otherwise noted. Does Renown Tuning offer drift tunes? - We waited around long enough knowing someone would specialize in this; so, in short, yes, now we do offer drift tunes. [Currently under review] What if I am unhappy with the tune? - Simply alert me to whatever the problem may be and I will do my best to alleviate the problem as soon as possible. What's the difference between a Track Special, Speed Special, RT Custom, and RT Exclusive tunes? - First off, before the answer is addressed in full, the reason these tunes are divided amongst four sets is for ease of access and are purposely arranged as such. As for the differences, a Track differs from a Speed Special in the specific sense that the former has the sole intent of giving the best performance around a track, allowing the user to get around any track as fast as possible using as much speed and aerodynamic ability as possible. The latter focuses on getting the absolute of performance capability while maintaining overall stability. An RT Custom is that which has been specifically requested by a customer, and an RT Exclusive are the tunes of my own personal taste according to my own driving style, or at least to the extent that the game will allow. Does Renown Tuning have any specific 'business' hours? - In fact we do, Renown Tuning is available Monday through Thursday for all reasonable hours, and we are closed Friday through Sunday, however, this does not mean requests still cannot be filed within that time. I'm currently having some problems with my controller settings and/or I can't seem to find a comfortable setting; what would you suggest? - The AdCon (Adjust Control) settings I use are as follows... Dualshock 3, 360 Controller S Force Feedback Strength: 100% Steering Deadzone: 23% Steering Sensitivity: 30% Accelerator Deadzone: 10% Accelerator Sensitivity: 49% Brake Deadzone: 10% Braking Sensitivity: 49% Clutch Deadzone: 2% Clutch Sensitivity: 50% Speed Sensitivity: 94% Speed Sensitivity (Drift): 94% Invert Gears: Normal Invert Camera Y Axis: Normal See Post #70 for the improved settings. G27 Force Feedback Strength: 100% Steering Deadzone: 0% Steering Sensitivity: 55% Accelerator Deadzone: 1% Accelerator Sensitivity: 50% Brake Deadzone: 1% Braking Sensitivity: 50% Clutch Deadzone: 1% Clutch Sensitivity: 50% Speed Sensitivity: 0% Speed Sensitivity (Drift): 0% Steering Lock: 540° Drift Steering Lock: 900° Invert Gears: Normal Invert Camera Y Axis: Normal THRUSTMASTER Ferrari GT EXP Force Feedback Strength: 100% Steering Deadzone: 1% Steering Sensitivity: 50% Throttle Deadzone: 6% Throttle Sensitivity: 50% Brake Deadzone: 6% Braking Sensitivity: 35% Clutch Deadzone: 6% Clutch Sensitivity: 35% Speed Sensitivity: 60% Speed Sensitivity (Drift): 100% Steering Lock: 100% Drift Steering Lock: 100% Invert Gears: Normal Invert Camera Y Axis: Normal Lap Index The following is a lap indication index. This index specifies how the lap was carried out. (S): Sloppy lap. (Q): Quick lap. (P): Practice lap. (Q+): Quick lap; capable of more. (Se): Series of quick laps. (Se+): Series of quick laps; capable of more. (N20): Should be self-explanatory. If it isn't, don't be ashamed to ask! (Pr): Precision lap. The same settings (sans the new clutch parameters) are the exact same settings I used in the original Shift, and as before while these are stated as the "recommended" settings, they are in no way, shape, or form imperative. Consider them a starting point if you want to experiment further. Over the course of time they're likely to be updated. The clutch settings are left at their default values as I don't use a clutch.
