    The Evo is a great car. I had a Renault Megane Gr. 4 car today.. Still only have the Lotus and the Nissan in the N300 class but all I need is the Mitsubishi anyway. :)

    But here's the reason for this post.

    Thanks bud..

    Yeah, i hope so too.. From the info from the unveiling event of GTSport there will be a livery editor available for the completed version of the game.

    Should be interesting to see what it's like.

    Very nice. Great driving. Judging by the engine sounds I suspect this car is driven in stock settings. A little twitchy at times but balanced none the less.

    I had a Jaguar F-Type Gr. 3 today. Nice car to drive for sure. I have been trying to tune up one GT3 car for races but every car handles differently and all I seem to do when I play with the settings is make it super fast but super twitchy on corner exit. I am going to have to spend a day with these machines to get a decent tune out of one of them.

    You'd be wrong..

    In stock form it's even more twitchy. The rear end will almost always try to overtake you in the corners.

    I've been tinkering with this thing for a while. Being an Italian car it does live up to it. The fiesty little thing has a temper, no matter what you try to throw at it, It just doesn't want to reveal what it wants..

    The state it's in now is as close as i can get it to suit my driving style.

    Man that car sounds like a dream from the outside.
    I know you know how to tune them in so if you're having trouble it must be a problem car.
    But with thr limited tuning i did. I did find camber works, toe effects where less pronounced and spring rate was highly effective.
    Have you tried very high rear positive toe high camber (1.0 per tyre type seemed to be the max gain) low damper and spring values and longer gears to keep the torque from spinning up the tyres?

    I've tried just about everything it seems, but to no avail.

    longer gears as you mentioned doesn't work out too good with that track.

    I have narrowed it down to a tweak of the diff and an adjustment in the final gearing.

    So today, I do my daily workout and what do I see heading towards me? It is my old friend Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 '13. What a grand day it is to be me. :)

    The next image is one taken a few days ago from a online race. Something tells me people are liking the Nissan GT-R Gr. 4 car. :lol:

    All I need now is a track that I can tune it on. The current Nascar track isn't really ideal for tuning as you don't have to do corners..

    Hey Beta Guys , what do you think about the BoP mode ? When you launch a race your setup is replaced by the Stock setting. I mean everybody have to drive with the Stock setting , no matter what tune you have on your car. the numbers become yellow and can't be changed. The weight/power compensation comes with every Race but everything not changeable ? I have seen this happens at some GT3 Races.

    Side note , i have two new members in my garage , the Ford Mustang GT3 and the Toyota FT-1 VGT GT3 :)

    I retained my tune on a the street cars i tried yesterday with BoP mode active. I didn't try the GT3 cars.
    Maybe it's simular to the no tuning option from online races in GT5/6

    Could any of the GT Sport Beta players who have this car try the Ford Focus ST '15 tune out and let me know what they think? Many thanks.

    Thanks. I really want to get into GT3 car tuning but the current race isn't compatible with tuning so looks like I will have to wait till next week for that pleasure. The beta game is good, I would like to use arcade mode and maybe see what the campaign mode looks like but apart from that I am pretty happy with the current game design.

    Hi Shaun , i did a few laps at Brands Hatch with you Setting and i works good, just a little understeer but almost every car seems to understeer, especially the FF Cars, anyway , much better than Stock :)

    Thanks for trying it out. Understeer was this cars biggest issue in stock form. Getting the power down wasn't easy at first but I think i found a compromise in handling and turn in that minimises the understeer issue somewhat.

    On another note, I have received my 2nd N300 car in a row today. Yesterday was the Ford and today I got the Renault Megane RS. Maybe tomorrow I will get a nicely balanced N300 car such as the Subaru Impreza or a nice Audi TT? I can only hope.

    Did anyone do the events today? I saw no changes in SR scores for any of us today. Have we had enough of Brands Hatch or something? :lol:

    Even a Car class swap would be nice , N300 at the Oval could be fun :)

    Still waiting for the Ferrari 458 GT3 but the McLaren 650S GT3 is also not so bad :)

    I'm definitely no expert racer or tuner, but I tried your Focus ST tune yesterday. I gave me significantly better laptimes around Brands Hatch than my own setup for the Focus. I still skidded around a bit, but with much greater control than before. I can't be sure, but if I were to refine the setup I would look at the LSD settings some more. But I think my driving skills, and using the Dualshock instead of my wheel, might be a bigger problem than the settings.
    I'd be happy to try any revision you make.
