    Eric Clapton had one of these back in the Cocaine days that apparently he used to do a bunch of blow and pick up hookers was very fond of. So much so, in fact, that he had Ferrari do up a 458 Italia to look like one. This car (well actually, it's very similar predecessor - the 365 GT4 BB; ) was Ferrari's answer to the Lamborghini Countach. While it appears superficially that Lamborghini won this round (a lot more people know and recognize the Countach today; ) from what I have read and gathered; the Ferrari was better to drive. I have left the weight mostly intact (save for the windows) and done minimal mods to the engine in an attempt to preserve some of this car's character.

    The timelessness of this design cannot be overstated. It is as elegant as it is brutal. There is also something of the F40 in the roofline, particularly around the rear window. Just marvelous.

    So when this car came out, I didn't really like the way it looked. I even saw and heard (the noise is really something) a few of them in person, and this did not convince me. I was a moron. Just compare this car to the ones that came before and after. The years have not been kind to the F50; and the Ferrari the Ferrari, aside from having a ridiculous name that instantly rendered the car completely irrelevant; looks like an Australian's nightmare. ;)

    Also the P1 is faster. :D

    But this car. The way the roof disappears before the rear fenders; the subtle F1 styling cues in the nose and the sculpted sides; the way that it produces downforce without using wings; these elements are the work of some exceptionally gifted individuals.

    Update 3/28/16 tweaks to dampers and diff, improved body control.

    Hi there, hope u ok, you definitely have a point there, this car has a great joyride as I have driven so many times in my online races and each time was a honor to do so. I do have my own setup for it but I will try yours too just to get a different feel. Speak soon, take care.

    Hey there, good to hear from you! I just figured something small out with another car that I might try on the Enzo; if it works I'll post the changes. I really it's an honor to drive!

    HCD6 concept, I call it a wild animal, tried everything to keep rear steady but not possible so far? It's a great little car apart from its ugly look, can beat any car up to 500pp, I have won few races online with 485pp against 500, worth trying m8

    My old friend, I made a huge mistake, lol.
    One of my top 3 favorite cars to drive in this game, is the '84 F-GTO.
    And I would normally never even try anyone else's settings for it but my own. Not because I'm ignorant or because I think I'm better then anyone else at tuning, but because the 4 I own are all 3-full on settings that I have perfected to my own style of driving and I absolutely love how I have them. Dependable, fast, maneuvering, sick dangerous toys.
    But, I also trust you when you tune.
    So, i bought a 5th one just to try out your latest adventure. (Which, I admit, I still haven't tried yet, lol, I will tonight.) Keep reading, you'll get it, lol.

    So I got the GTO, no oil change, did all the parts you said, saved trans for last, ect ect.
    And started to do the trans and realized it wasn't matching up. Now, no big deal, 90% of posted tunes don't match exact on trans. Some accidentally did do oil, some used a car with a billion miles that offset numbers, some changed a power part during tuning and offset numbers, ect. I just figured it was one of those.
    Anyhoo, I took it out on my personally made testing track (tons of evil curves of variable degrees, one long speed test straight, and some high speed sudden turns, perfect for testing, horrrid for racing, lol)
    I took that car around that track 3 times, I used 'brake-taps', never actually holding the brake down......ever...just tapping to cause a rear drift slide, gunning the accel when pointed right, ect.
    I don't think i ever went under 65mph, which, if you saw my track, is not possible in many spots.
    I was in love with a car i was already in love with ^^
    Now, that, and my style of driving in general, is very hard on rear tire wear. I know that, i accept that, and don't care. I drive for feel and fun, not to out drive the genius 12 year olds who play this game 14 hours a day, lol.
    The thing is, and the punchline of this book I've left on your page, is my mistake;
    When I put in your settings, I must have accidentally scrolled up without knowing. I put in your settings for the '76 BB. Yeah, that.
    Explains why the trans didn't match. And why my 500pp car is 542pp instead.
    But man, wow. Just wow.
    Thank you for accidentally surprising me, and allowing me to experience something out of a car I thought I already 'been there/done that/T-shirt" everything possible.

    Tonight, I will actually try your real settings. But i have to be honest, No matter how good they are, I seriously doubt it will excite me the same way this did, lol.
    Take care man. I will let you know how it works out.
    Story times over :)

    Lol. Glad you liked it; I'm amazed that it worked at all! Hope you like the "real" settings.

    I did like it man.
    The top reason I liked it, it had a bit more control then my settings, and therefor much better on tire wear and dependability.
    The only thing I didn't like, it had a bit more control then my settings, lol. Thats not your fault though. I like loose rear ends (giggity).
    The other mistake settings were just a freak chance they actually did anything. It has given me a new avenue of tuning this car for extreme situations. I have to break down WHY it does what it does now, without undoing it.
    I am going to keep your real tune on a preset however, for any serious online active tire wear racing.
    Good job as always man^^

    Hi guys, I think Arrkis's setups usually are rock solid and gives full confidence to any driver so they can concentrate on controlling the car and enjoying their ride than feeling nervous on each corner. Great job mate.

    I drive a partial drift in most races. Its more fun, and the feel is way better. Not to mention in most cases better lap times.
    The only real issue, is I can't use those type of settings or driving in any online 'real' races that go more then 2 laps, or I'm changing tires more then I'm racing, lol.
    But trust me, I know my tricks to get a partial drift without actually using drift settings, and therefor without losing too much straight power either.

    fair enough thats just your driving style and you prefer that way but you need to know that in GT6 I have noticed that if the car is more steady you get better lap time and you loos less power, also always stays on higher speed. off bed now, speak soon

    When this car was being made it was often derided for looking too much like a Ferrari (oh no.) and allegedly having no personality.

    I think it has aged quite well.

    Oh right; the handling is also magnificent.

    I was SO happy to see you back on tuning again!You are my favourite tuner because all your past setups worked with my driving style.Now that I tested your new work I have to say that I am impressed.Especially with the Ferraris you transformed some handfull cars to online war machines.The NSX is ofcourse a top car but with your setup I found the motivation to use it again sometimes.(Especially when the other competitors use it too)Welcome back :cheers:

    Thank you so much!

    I've got a few more pretty interesting ones that I think are more or less ready to go; the only thing is that I've come down with "the yips" - it's like I forgot how to play the game overnight. I went to give them a final shakedown and couldn't remember how to drive. It's like not being able to taste food all of a sudden - I'm not able to evaluate them at all. It is quite frustrating.

    As soon as this goes away, I have a few more for you.

    Was using this tune for online 550 pp Nordschleife races.

    1) The high speed braking in this track means that I need to increase the brake balance by 2 both front and rear.
    2) The LSD, in particular the acceleration value, needs to be substantially reduced to render fast corner exits.
    3) What is slightly tricky is that the car has so much low end torque that you have to go down to the first gear in a few hairpins! The first 2 gear ratios are tweaked down accordingly.
    4) Likewise, the high torque also causes exit oversteer quite easily and higher front extension seems to reduce that.

    All in all, a stable tune for challenging course like the Ring, and certainly one that enables you to reach 7 minutes!

    Would like to hear from feydrautha about these suggestions indeed and many thanks.

    Thanks for your input! I haven't played GT in months :( I'll start playing again soon and have a look. One thing I can tell you is that the Jag is big and heavy; it doesn't stop well regardless of what you do.

    Adding brake balance only increases their sensitivity relative to eachother and relative to the pedal force applied; increasing the likelihood of a lockup and making steering while braking more difficult. It won't help you stop any better or sooner; It is primarily intended to affect the handling balance of the car under braking.

    More front bias = understeer/stability

    More rear bias = oversteer/instability

    Play with the settings until you find something you like; but generally speaking, a lower setting makes braking easier; especially on DS3.

    Hope this little tidbit helps. Thanks for reading and using my tune!
