    That's fine.

    While I did vote to allow tuning, I think my goal for this series will be to keep the car stock and see what happens. While I'm sure it may make some (small) differences to certain people, in the end I think most people will run to their personal max, regardless of what settings you use.

    Remember folks, from what I've read we're talking at most a few tenths here and there and possibly having a slightly easier car to drive. A normally slower driver will not be blitzing a normally faster driver.

    One other thing to note. I don't care what tuning you've done to your car, when you're 20 minutes into a 30 minute race, you will get tired and make mistakes. Whatever time you think you may gain with tuning will be negated. Personally, I will spend my time trying to figure out how to not run out of 'gas' towards the end of the night.... :cheers:

    I totally get where you're coming from you have a lot on your plate and dont have a lot of free time to tune so I can see why you're drawn to the Sunday SNAIL format of no tuning because you don't have to worry about tweaking this and that you just take it right out of the box and onto the track and run what you brung so to speak and nice job in the arl race last night I was impressed it was a difficult combo proply the hardest one to date by the way did you eat the period button on your keyboard or what because I've never seen you use one before

    Since we had a drop off of the primary drivers list, you will be placed as our 16th primary driver.
    You have been added to the drivers list as a (Platinum) Class Driver.
    *Your selected race team is: ACI Motorsports
    *Car No. 17 and associated livery for that number shown below. Welcome again.

    I work a measly 40 hours a week and do 2 weekly lounges. After years of giving me grief, the wife has gotten accustomed to it [or has given up hope on me]. I can’t imagine trying to keep up with your schedule.

    For those of you concerned about Tuning - GTS has a Tuning Forum. There are numerous “Garages”, and Individuals linked to their setups for many cars, including the 911 RSR.

    Takes only a few minutes to record the settings and then enter as a separate setup from Spec.

    As Nova said, the setups give the car a smooth and stable behavior - which gives the Driver more focus on racing than fighting thru corners.

    Hope you will give it a try, and experience the benefit.

    LIST OF AVAILABLE AND SHARED TUNING
    A couple tunes I have come across from a few tuning garages in the GTS tuning forum. Try a couple different ones to see if any work for your driving style.
    Jump_Ace's Tuning Garage

    Jeje6410 GT Sport Tune Garage (updates regurlaly / 09/11/18)


    Here is his tune by the numbers with mm to inch conversion for ride height

    Also, remember to drop the vehicle weight to the car minimum of 2723lbs whether you decide to tune the car or not. We will be running as close to a real Cup Car weight as possible.

    Share your livery. Then go to gran-turismo.com and select your livery. Right click on the image and select 'open in new tab' (or something like that, probably browser dependent). Copy the url of the image and use it to insert the image in a post here.

    Hey,
    Sorry it's taken so long for a reply. I will be sending an official welcome message specific for reserve drivers via PM. Your livery looks great, but will need some edits to meet the uniformity standards. Stand by.

    Hang tight, I'll send you a PM with all the reserve driver parameters, and give you a list of uniformity details for your livery with instructions on where to get decals. Have you gotten a division placement yet with Snail?

    I spent some time running at Suzuka with nova’s tune, JumpAce’s tune and JeJe’s tune. JeJe’s tune for me is a clear winner. (Also for Brands Hatch). It’s fast but easy and recoverable. JumpAce’s tune is exact to his description and if you accept it then it seems to be good. But times show it’s slow.
    Still have to try Priano’s tune.

    I'll check out JeJe's tune. He lowers the weight by 5% too. Did you notice it feeling too heavy with that tune or anything like that?

    Make sure you take the weight to 2723. Will need to Upgrade the Weight modifier to level 5 and then reduce it as far as possible.

    Is that what we're all doing? I thought it was stock weight and power.

    Were going with stock power, but the 2723 is the lightest we can go to get as close to Cup Car weight of 2640. Tune using 2723 as your weight.
