    I have no idea whats going on with my car then. Its very odd that mine should be 650PP at 89.4% or whatever the original figure was, but you can't reach that.. Hmm. Pass on that one. One thing should be consistent, the tune with the suspension and the LSD should work on any power range. Not that it helps with the PP issue.
    This seasonal tune makes Suzuka very easy to win with whilst having a lot of fun driving past the opposition or just let them drive themselves into sand traps. Which ever comes first.
    I don't think I own this car yet. I shall have to find one that works for me as I have only got 3rd so far in this race.

    I was sure that I did an oil change to the car but perhaps this is the error. An oil change can cause a change of PP by about 7PP in a car of that spec. I shall alter the post. All I can suggest is to adjust the power limiter to get the PP to reach 650.

    BMW Z4 GT3

    The one thing ill say about the Z4 GT3 is that it may not be to everyones taste when it comes to GT3 driving. I found whilst tuning and testing that if i left the rear too neutral (i.e. not understeering), the amount of power in this car gave it tendencies to over steer and spin on me. Using a DS3, by the time I realised the car was spinning, it was already gone and I had no chance to salvage the rear to keep going. In the end, I went for a setup that understeers rather than over steers as it gave me the confidence to push through a corner knowing that if it went wrong, I would only have to lift off the gas and straighten the car up, as opposed to finding myself going backwards into or through a corner. I believe that other tuners have made a car which is more balanced (which I used before) but I was unable to keep the car in check all the time. This tune enabled me to do that fairly easily. Its a few seconds off the pace but id take a few seconds off the pace in a career race you are bound to win in, rather than lose a race because of a car due to spinning on the last lap.

    Id be interested to know what other people think about this tune and if they agree the above information.

    Also, Camber Testing.

    I have just finished off tuning the Nissan Fairlady Z34 '08 car. The suspension settings I had felt good apart from the rear end which was sliding all over the place. In the case of this car, camber does, and has helped control this car and it feels so much better. This tune will be published soon, It would be worth anyone testing this tune to first try the camber set at 0.0/0.0 and then set the camber to the actual tune settings. This should help any GT6 players understand the difference that camber can make to some cars in the game.

    If you like sand drifting then sure :) I test GT3 cars on F1 style tracks. Silverstone mainly but sometimes Nurburgring GP Circuit.

    Ah nah i could not be bothered in the end. Too much work for what it is worth. The prize paint colour doesn't look like anything special and that is the main reason i do the seasonal events.

    @chrisspeed281 wow that is some impressive amount of credits :tup:

    Just ABS 1 and Controller sensitivity set to 1. Everything else is off.
    I agree with you on this particular BMW tune. It is one of the better tunes I have done for the BMW racing car series.

    This is one of the cars which I was experimenting with camber with. If you are unsure as to what difference camber can make to a car. try setting this car up with 0.0/0.0 and see the difference that it has on the handling compared to the tune above.

    I am going out to enjoy the sun on my bike for a little bit. All the college work is done and printed now so my time is my own once again!

    @Pete05 - I will be working on the project cars which you left feedback on a few days ago this afternoon. See if i can work out the niggles in them. I don't know what Clio RS car you had on your WIP list but the new Clio RS '02 is pretty nimble and if it is that exact model, the settings should be transferrable into your car. Another car which is sort of the way you like your cars to handle is the new Lotus Motor Sport I just published, Its a car that can bite you in the ass if you push too hard but its very manoeuvrable on technical circuits. I have a feeling you'd like that one on Bathurst.

    Enjoy the ride & the lovely sunshine. Winter had set in here with a vengeance.
    The Clio in my WIP list is the later version.
    The Elsie sounds good. Hopefully it's more forgiving than that bloody Evora. Was watching a repeat of Top Gear last night & JC was praising the attributes of the base Evora with a smile from ear to ear.

    Jeremy has obviously never driven this car in GT6 then :) I suppose Top Gear was a lot earlier and it gave PD chance to mess up the handling in the interim!

    No worries, Drift tunes are fun to make. Its nice helping others get gold in the drift events. The paints are the only reason I do the drift events too.
