    Tuner Notes
    The FC is a very balanced car, good cornering and very quick acceleration, but the real challenge was making this car easier to drive on SH tires. The diff is set up to handle the power but around Tsukuba it still needed a lot of delicate throttle control especially on the exits of the tight corners, and it can also get a bit tricky around 35R if you went in too deep on the Dunlop corner.

    Tuner Notes

    Unsurprisingly, the FD is a great car at 550PP. I thought I hit the jackpot with my initial settings since the car just brakes and turns into corners so well then accelerates so quickly out of them. Of course, without the downforce, you’ll still need to lift off going into the high speed esses but even then the car feels really stable.

    RX8_track.jpg

    Tuner Notes

    The supercharger option on the RX8 really suited the car well since the RX8 has the naturally NA rotary. There’s a lot of torque even on the over-rev so corner exit acceleration is excellent. The car’s set a bit stiff since Silverstone National is a mid-speed track, and cornering balance is tuned towards a bit of understeer to allow for better power applications through the corners.

    Z33_track.jpg

    Tuner Notes

    Like the RX8, the supercharger on the Z33 fit really well with the engine’s characteristics, and helped make the car better powering through corners. Fuji Speedway’s a track with lots of braking done from high speeds, so the car’s tuned to be stable under heavy braking. The cornering performance is also set towards stability since the track’s full of high speed corners and it’s actually easy to trace a good line through 100R. It’s a well-balanced car despite having quite the weight.

    R33_track.jpg

    Tuner Notes
    Like the other Skyline GT-Rs, this one has amazing performance out of the box. Around Cape Ring South, this car’s able to accelerate midway through the corner for a very nice corner exit speed. Its weight can definitely be felt during braking and going on the faster corners, but the car’s handling still feels very neutral. It wasn’t a difficult car to work with since it’s very easy to drive, and I just set the car to still retain that neutral handling and be able to use its power effectively.

    Tuner Notes
    Probably the best FF road car I’ve driven in the game. The car just handles so well. The LSD is setup to allow for a little wheelspin in exchange for better handling on the corners. While flooring the gas from apex to exit is still very much a bad idea in an FF car, you can go at least ¾ on the throttle to get you accelerating from the apex. It’s a tune made for short tracks with tight corners but adjusting the final gear to suit other tracks should be enough to get you started.

    FD2_track.jpg

    Tuner Notes

    A bit of a pain in the ass to tune since SH tires on this were so sensitive to the LSD. I couldn’t really find the balance I was looking for with the diff so I opted for a setup that spins less but understeers with too much throttle. Cornering response is good but I think the diff really defined the handling characteristics of the car. It’s not as maneuverable as the DC5, but I’ve tried this car before on better tires and the FD2 is a good car, I just don’t think it works that well with the SH tires.

    Thanks! :cheers:

    If there are tunes I'd recommend, they would probably be the Supra RZ, the NSX Type R '02 and the Nissan Be-1. These are the cars I had the most fun tuning and driving.

    Hi man, I finally have the time to test your cars, and I have already drive your Supra 5 minutes ago.

    So, it's a very good car, here is my review :

    Suspension : Clear setup, the no-camber puzzle me but it works fine. I can feel that the setup is made with DS3, very stable, excellent turn-in and apex to exit, but I prefer a little less stable. However that's my preference and this supension setup is very well. :tup: :)

    Gearbox : I enjoyed a lot this transmission, the gears fall a the exact moment we want, and it allows a very good traction in the exit of the corners.

    LSD : I was surprised by this, this is very low :crazy::lol: I joke, but I drive essentially high-LSD and surprisingsly it works fine for me, even with a wheel. My preference will be to increased Acell. but that's just what is better for me haha

    Finally I like a lot this tune, I will maybe do little tweaks because it's made for DS3 user I think, but in general I enjoyed the car, great job !

    Suspension :
    Very good, that's just what it needs to be between too less calm and too much. I just reduce the toe (0.06 0.16) but the entire setup is excellent. :tup: :)

    Gearbox :
    As the Supra, this is perfect, nothing more to say. :tup:

    LSD :
    As I said i prefer high-LSD, however the LSD is very good, stable and allow a lot of traction.

    I like more this tune than the Supra and I don't know why, but this car will stay as you tuned it in my garage, second great job ! ;)

    Wow! Thanks a lot, glad you liked it! :tup:

    I was actually curious about how high LSD settings react in comparison to low LSD settings. I did take a look at some your tunes and I find the difference to be quite significant. I also saw other tuners use high LSD settings, so it's apparently as effective as low settings. Perhaps it's because the initial torque is set low that you have a lot more room to work with the sensitivities? I'm not sure, I might have to play around the settings soon to get an idea.

    Thanks for the feedback on the NSX, I was actually quite unsure of how the car will react with the wheel since I was already being careful with the car on corners. I tend to tune the transmissions for the track I'm testing on then when I'm done, I just widen the gears a bit to make it more of a general tune for other tracks.

    Even I like the NSX more than the Supra, it corners much better and the acceleration is just like the Supra's even with less power and torque because the NSX is just so lightweight.

    Thanks for the reviews of my tunes, I think I'll return the favor and test some of yours tomorrow. I'm really curious as to how your high LSD settings work. :)

    I think (just my opinion) that the high LSD are preferred by the wheel-user because you have a better control with the throttle and you can use the traction of the exterior wheel to rotate more, but you need to be good I think :lol::lol:

    More seriously, that's just a preference of how calm you want your car would be, and finally yes the low initial torque allows a little more work, but a high-LSD work with a high initial torque too, depends on car.

    All this is my opinion, see by yourself :D

    I don't know how it reacts with a DS3, hope it won't slide too much, because I know I like to set my car to slide a little just for the fun :lol:

    If anything, front-wheel drive cars give me the most trouble when it comes to setting up the LSD. I think I'll start with those, and if they feel good, I might redo most of my FF tunes to make them better. :)

    I'd rather have a car that slides than a car that understeers :lol:. I might go for the Z4 and the Evora.

    Just a bit of an update, I'll be posting new touge and Nurburgring tunes the week after Christmas.

    Here's a little preview on what to expect from next week:
    • Touge Tunes
      • Toyota Supra RZ
      • Toyota AE86 Trueno
      • Toyota AE86 Levin
      • Nissan Silvia S14
      • Nissan Silvia S15
    • Nurburgring Tunes
      • Toyota 86
      • Nissan 350Z
      • Honda S2000
    That's not all of them, though, those are just the ones I wanted to share.

    Also, since I'll be competing in the VRR Super GT Series Season 3 starting January 9th, I'll also be posting the tunes I used on each of the races, the car used would be the Lexus IS350 GT300 Base Model.

    Tuner Notes

    Since the car’s got a lot of power, I decided to go for a tune suited to high speed touge like the Toyo Turnpike’s downhill. The car accelerates quickly but the power’s made to be easily controllable out of corners. Cornering is set for more stability to be able to carry a lot of speed through the fast bends, but still provide adequate steering response through the tighter corners. Braking is also set up to stop the car quicker. Overall, it’s a very fast car for high speed touge and also makes for a good practice car for high-powered FR cars.

    Tuner Notes
    The naturally light body of the AE86 left me with a lot of room to play with the ballast, so I was able to equip the car with all engine upgrades to make it into a fully tuned NA machine with a lot of power. The car’s body is pretty rigid so I didn’t have to do much to make it really agile through the corners. It’s easy to grip as it is to drift and you can actually switch up between these two driving styles on the fly. Have fun taking this car for a spin, easily a car suited for all skill levels.

    Tuner Notes
    To distinguish my tuned Trueno from this one, this Levin is equipped with a supercharger. Initial D references aside, this car is a pretty good counterpart to the NA tuned Trueno, as the supercharger creates more torque and doesn’t lose too much responsiveness. The suspension was tuned similar to the Trueno so the cornering experience varies depending on how you use the throttle on this one. This tune is geared towards the more advanced drivers as this car needs a little more skill to tame.

    S14_touge.jpg

    Tuner Notes
    Like the S13, the S14 possesses good performance on the touge. The car turns smoothly and grips the road very well, and thanks to the power output significantly higher compared to cars like the AE86, it can also accelerate out of the corners quickly. Braking is slightly weaker compared to the S13, but it still performs well enough to be able to slow down quickly enough during late braking. It’s an all-around touge machine, it’s got good cornering response and stability, and it’s got decent power.

    Tuner Notes
    More powerful than any of the previous S-chassis, but the car still doesn’t have as much power as a Supra or a Skyline GT-R, though it more than makes up for it in its handling, where it matches up to the likes of the RX7. This car has excellent cornering ability, with sharp cornering response and good braking. Easily the best performer of the S-chassis family, the S15 is definitely a competitive car on any touge track.

This also makes it easier for me to organize as it also serves as a reminder of what tunes I'll need to put up for the month.

    The tunes to expect for the month of January are as follows:


    VRR SUPER GT TUNES (These are the tunes I'll be using for the VRR Super GT Series Season 3)
    • Lexus IS350 GT300 Base Model '08
      • Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
      • Fuji Speedway F
      • Twin Ring Motegi Road Course
    TRACK TUNES
    • Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86)
    • Nissan Fairlady Z (Z32)
    CITY TUNES
    • Honda CR-X del Sol SiR

    Man I checked two pages of your tunes and you never change the camber. I think that your set up could be improved with camber adjustments. I also see that you do not mention the YAW control on lancer evo cars that are equiped with it. YAW is very useful but the important thing is to find balance between the turn in and lost of rear wheel traction at the corner exit. Keep on doing a great job. I hope that I helped you a little bit.

    Camber works weirdly in this game, and it's not just me, most of the tuners here would agree that camber in the game doesn't work as you'd expect in it real life, and going with 0 camber gives the most grip. That's why I just keep camber to 0. I will try experimenting with camber with my future tunes, though.

    If you're talking about the AYC on the Lancer Evo cars, I find much easier to tune the settings using the Fully Customizable LSD (which replaces the AYC for the Evos when you install it). I've tested the AYC before and it works to a certain degree, but I just find it easier to control the car's power delivery.

    Fair enough regarding LSD VS YAW. you probably have more expiriance with LSD. But oncontrary YAW is more simplified. probably you can get more performance out of LSD but for novice players i strongly recomend YAW. And regarding camber... I usualy use F=2.5 and R=1.5 and it works for me. You should at least aply some angle on the front wheels. It will give you some extra grip and agility in corners. Try 1.5 on front and 0.5 on rear. It will deffinetly improve your handling. I can not wait to get some feedback from you. Keep up the great work.

    Description
    I'm a big fan of Toyota and Manabu Orido, so when I saw it was available for the VRR Super GT Series, the choice was pretty obvious. As for the car itself, it's a very stable machine with lots of torque, so it has a lot of potential. Around Spa, the cornering and braking ability of this car is really maximized, as I can attack the track so aggressively and the car just follows. I love the car, I love the track, it just felt so damn nice to drive around.
