BOWTIE’s SPEED SHOPMy Tunes:
I tune with the DS3, left stick steering, L2/R2 brake/gas, M/T, Controller sensitivity @2. ABS1, sometimes will use TC1 until comfortable with the tune, then switch back to TC0 and make final tweaks. I prefer Sports (soft) tires and will rarely use racing tires on street cars. All tunes should be considered a “Work in Progress” and may be updated or changed. Any and all feed back, positive or negative is appreciated, so feel free to ask about or discuss any specific tune. We all have differing tuning and driving styles, so if you find a tune that does not work for you, do not be afraid to try another…..you just might find a diamond in the rough!
I cannot drift so do not build drift tunes, or drag, or rally. I also do not specifically tune for “The Ring” and rarely go there, so I do not know how tunes will behave on that track. Sorry. At this time I am also not accepting requests until I am happier with this garage and the feedback received.
I have been, and plan on continuing, competing in FITT Tuning Challenges. These tunes will be linked to there original posts along with links to the rules and reviews for each challenge. Also, I will give the results of how it fared in lap time average (LTA) and driver choice score (DC). Review posts will have links to each individual tester so you will be able to see what they thought of the tune. Some of these will be updated after the shootout and I will post a “Version II” based on feedback.
Any tune that is also/or posted in the Tuning Database, will also have “review” after it so you can see any remarks from others who have tried the tune.
Most of the time I just throw a quick tune at a car, get the gold/cash/reward and get out. Sometimes, if I like the car track combo, I may spend more time on the tune. These tunes are ones where I have (with my driving skill) managed to finish in the top 1500 in the rankings (usually the top 1000) or I will not likely share the tune. This way, you will know it was good for the gold and then some.
