    Soften the back end.
    Start by reducing the rear damper compression to 1 that generally solves it in race cars. If it's still a bit happy reduce the rear ARB one point at time. If you hit 1 and still a problem start reducing rear springs 0.25 kgfmm at a time or less so as not to upset the balance too much

    I find the car makes a strange crackling sound.

    Don't worry about that. It just ate too much bacon. :)

    What @Otaliema said is a great suggestion and I couldn't word that any better myself.

    Final Result

    A lot of testers were unable to complete testing for this event so only three reviews for my tune. Some good, some not so good. It is personal preference so give it a go and see what you think.

    Final result for my tune was 5th fastest for lap time and 8th for DC.

    Something in the rare and expensive section should do it. I have all the 20 million cars tuned up already. :)

    Selected by low mileage and 4wd, your RS6 Avant CotM tune with PP lowered to 500 and dirt tires added as the only changes, is unreal in the Intermediate challenge! In many spots on the course, you can't tell you're on dirt. My first three laps were 2:07's, simply incredible! :bowdown:

    I will add this car to the list in a bit. This isn't one car that I would have thought suits this event so a great find indeed.

    So it will be a interesting qualifying race but a uneventful race.

    I don't have the race live. We only get the highlights on Channel 4 this season. We have a delay of about 7 or so hours from the live race.

    One day you have to upgrade so you can see these things live instead of highlights.

    We get 10 races live. This isn't one of them unfortunately. One day I will get Sky TV with the dedicated F1 channel. It is supposed to be really good. If not a little expensive.

    I love your Elise 111R tune, couldn't quite win SS5 with it, (pesky Rocket!), but have been using it to time trial round the Nurburgring, its brilliant so controllable when it goes, so thanks a lot. Will be checking out some of your other tunes..

    Not the cleanest win but a win in a FF car. I maxed the power, removed the ballast, and tightened the LSD. :cheers:

    CoTM Reviews from @fordlaser777

    1:51.678. @shaunm80 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) '14 (600PP) at the Grand Valley Speedway on Sports Softs tyres, track set/ Real. Overall this car handles really well and in the corners as well with no issues about this car at all, I can drive this car all day on this track if I have to because it is enjoyable to drive, well done Shaun :):cheers:.

    1:47.599 @shaunm80 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) '14 (600PP) at the Grand Valley Speedway on Racing Hard tyres, track set/ Real. Overall this thing does not like these tyres very well because in the corners it want to understeer a bit, but it is not a big problem you just lose a bit of time. I even tired going slower in the corners and still it want to understeer, other than a bit of understeer this car is fast, I think I will have these 2 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) '14 (600PP) in my garage on Sports Soft tyres :tup:

    Not a max power tune but a close to as. I have a SS tune which works well on RH tyres. Add a rear wing, set DC to 8-10 and your good to go. :) It is in my garage. Link can be found on page 1.
