    Ride Height: 75 75
    Spring Rate: 21.43 19.39 (lowest possible)

    Dampers (Extension): 5 5
    Anti-Roll Bars: 4 3
    Camber Angle: 2.2 3.2
    Toe Angle: -0.08 0.08

    Alternate Aero :
    FRONT : 280
    REAR : 680

    Alternate LSD ( loose )
    Initial Torque : 51
    Acceleration Sensitivity: 51
    Braking Sensitivity: 51


    Notes :
    This is a replica of Audi R8 LMS Ultra Blancpain version, the power figures depend on the restrictor usage, so I have provided 3 different power levels.

    The suspension has been overhauled from my older tune, incorporating new spring rate, damper, ARB, toe and camber. With the new setup, I can use same camber front and back, unlike in the older version :)
    Overall the car is easier to drive, safer, and more consistent.

    For LSD, I have used the same 2 way setup, with similar setup like in 458 GT3, while gearing also adapted from 458 GT3 homologated ratios, and it worked so well with the R8 LMS.

    I have tuned and tested the car at Tsukuba, Brands Hatch GP, Bathurst, Silverstone GP, Nurburgring 24H and Spa :D

    With stock gearing and 528HP, it manages 52.5xxs at Tsukuba, 1:23.3xxs at Brands Hatch GP, 2:04s at Bathurst and 2:01s at Silverstone GP, all on 1st lap :D

    To replicate 2014 Audi R8 LMS, I would suggest to run at 500HP

    Please leave feedback about the replica, I always consider this car as a work in progress

    UPDATE : Added new alternate suspension and aero set, the alternate setup offers better low speed stability and lighter steering at medium and higher speed, LSD remains the same. The new alternate setup is capable of 1:59s at Silverstone GP :eek: with 552HP.

    UPDATE 1.09 : Added alternative setup for 1.09, with working camber, some little changes to the ARB, rear spring, toe, camber and LSD, thank @danbojte for testing

    5/5,
    Excellent tune. This had been sitting in my stockyard as i hated the way it drove. With this tune it's much better. Smooth & stable & a pleasure to drive.
    Big thumbs up from me.

    5/5,
    Great tune! This desireable car had been un-driveable for too long. Unfortunately, I have a 15th Anniversary Edition LMS Ultra and therefore I can't use your transmission settings. I hate how PD mucks with their 15th Ann. Ed. cars so much. They add extra power, sure, but tunes become incompatible. Regardless, the suspension and LSD settings are fantastic. The car is still a little twitchy in lower gears thru the twisty's, but that just means you better be paying attention to your inputs...

      Thanks for giving great review, I don't have the R8 LMS Anniversary, but maybe you can use the closest ratio it can get. Glad the tune helped a lot of people :D

    4/5,
    This car has been a pain since day one. I'm using the tune on both the DFGT and the G27. For the most part, its solid. I still need to feather the throttle out of tight turns. Longer sweeping ones, I can stay on it. Brake balance works well too. I think its the best its going to get. Good job!

    Just wanted to say great tune. When losing control from pushing to hard I'm able to easily regain control and prevent spin. Fast & stable thanks!

    This tune knocked an average 9 to 13 seconds off of nearly every track. I used the updated suspension and rear end settings. Excellent! Thank you for sharing!

      Thanks for reviewing the car, I have also added an alternate suspension, aero and LSD for better low speed stability under recent updates - the alternate LSD is based on review of a member here. Worth a try.

    Now this nasty became drivable. :tup:

      Thank you :) I will still be coming back to the car from time to time, this car is unique, there are compromises to every tuning option to fix the front grip excess on low speed.
