It needs some updating, although it does work better on Sports Soft tires, it was tuned at Rome. It was also tuned shortly after the 1.09 update and has camber in front and rear. I have since gone back to not using camber so much and would likely remove rear camber and set to 0.0. The front would still have some but would be less, the car is on my "redo" list. It is not an easy car to tune but not as bad as some others, all I can say is try it as is and give me your feedback if you do. If you run on SH tires, throttle control on exit needs to be used, or it needs to stay on a more open track like Rome or Willow.Hi Bowtie, how do you rate your IROC chevy tune for circuit racing buddy? just cause you know, its muscle an' all 👍
im starting to get into taming muscle cars for circuits.
Great reply, ill try it and give you feedback.It needs some updating, although it does work better on Sports Soft tires, it was tuned at Rome.

Still have more to come, with the FITT STi vs Evo challenge I got carried away and tuned a bunch. With the R33 being the Car of the Month, I did it again. Have a few R32's, and some R35 GT-R's coming soon.That is a lot of nissans. For a muscle car man, you have a lot of imports being created. Nice to see you diversifying into new territory
I saw that last night just before I got off, thought I would try out my GT-R Nismo, 2 posts up.If you have one of these beauties tuned up to 600PP on SS tyres, you will have a good car for this weeks seasonal event. I used a GT-R Black Mask '07 and that worked a treat. I imagine any other 4wd vehicle will be just as effective.
GT-R Nismo is a guaranteed gold, If you tune is as stable as mine is (which is most probably is), you'll set a very easy gold time.I saw that last night just before I got off, thought I would try out my GT-R Nismo, 2 posts up.
This is all for today, tomorrow maybe, I have 4 more R35's but you will have to wait until they pop up to see which ones.

My review of this tune by @nijalninja :Bowtie-muscle has been extremely kind and has allowed me to feature one of my tunes in his garage, and so here we have my INTEGRA TYPE R (DC5) '04 at 550pp.
This car was tuned using a DS3 on Sports Softs with no driving aids whatsoever, and has been tuned to suit this specifically.
Stage 3 engine tuning
Racing exhaust (I thought that it sounded best)
Isometric exhaust manifold
Catalytic converter: Sports
High RPM range Turbo kit
Height adjustable, Fully customisable suspension
Racing brake kit
Stage 3 weight reduction
Window weight reduction
Fully customisable mechanical LSD
Fully customisable transmission
Aesthetics, Helpful stuff and Services:
Improve body rigidity
Inch up 1: RAYS 57Gainer (Rims)
Boost meter (psi)
Rev. counter: 0-12000 RPM (The standard rev. counter tops out all of the time)
Speedo: 0-320 km/h (The standard speedo is topped out on long tracks all of the time)
Arctic silver metallic: Body color
Cool soda metallic (Toyota Aqua s): Brake Calipers (gives the car a cooler, less stand-out look)
Type E base (Driver number)
Type B font (this car looks good with a number on it)
The Aesthetics stuff is all what I think suits the car the best, and I spent a lot of time trying to get it looking this good. The overall idea of its look is: A fast and nice looking street racer that looks like less than it is.

Stuff to know:
This car was originally just a test car for me to learn about FF drivetrains better. I drove it in over a dozen races of varying 'pp' and tyres, and with the money that the car made; I tuned. In one case I managed to beat an FXX at the Autumn ring in this car with a similar setup. After testing it on several tracks I found that this particular setup was pretty good all round for me. This car performed especially well at Eiger Nordwand Short track, where it surpassed the times of my RX-7, NSX Type r, and Nissan R33 GTR, by a few seconds. Around Trial Mountain it runs at about 1:30.xxx without nitro. It can run average 7:15.xxx times around Nurburgring fairly easily, and has once achieved a 7:11.xxx without the nitro. With a better driver I am sure it could do better, and maybe even reach the Nissan GTR Nismo official time.
Random fact: I managed to do a full front flip on the jump at Eiger Nordwand by smashing and holding the brakes in mid air; it landed, did an endo, and then flipped clean over.
This was perhaps the first car I started to use without ABS, and it was a good learning experience: It tends to smoke the front tyres from 200-150 km/h when braking hard, but it does not lose too much traction as a result, and its deceleration does not decrease as a result. Trail braking is also not a problem; it can actually be used to gain grip on corner exit if you drive with a heavy throttle. It is necessary to use the gears a lot in certain corners, and can take a while to learn grip patterns with gearing, but it all comes with time. On longer corners at certain speeds this car is extremely fast, and maintains a lot of grip the whole way around. On most corners the car pulls 1.5 g's or so, but on more intense corners it reaches 2.0 g's and over.
I have tried to decrease the understeer that most FF cars suffer, and it works well with this car, but corner exits have always given me trouble. However, it is extremely sporty and competitive for an FF car; it is the fastest one I own; the fastest I have driven also.
I would like to thank Bowtie-muscle for letting this tune be displayed, and I hope that anyone who wishes for a good FF car can find what they want in this tune.
