    Roadster Class Review

    All tunes tested with DS3, manual trans, triggers for gas/brake, left stick steer. ABS 1, all others off, grip set to real in Arcade mode. All tunes were given between 12-15 laps and for the most part I felt I got the most out of every tune. My times me differ from your own, so if they are not as low I apologize but chances are yours would not be the only tune lower.

    @DolHaus and @praiano63 gave really good reviews breaking down entry-mid corner-exit so I will just give my impressions and not too much details on handling.

    @787bcgr :
    Time - 51.727
    DC - 7.5

    Not the first tune I tested but the one that received the most laps and effort, precise inputs were required and it took quite a few laps to get into a groove and not sure I got it all. Found the extra rear weight causing the car to be more demanding and less forgiving but rewarding if you could keep it straight. The problem was keeping it straight, another 10 laps and I could have been better but I had already given more than the others.

    Bowtie-muscle:
    Time - 51.024
    DC - 8.5

    Obviously I like my own tune and know the line to take to make it fast, just not as good a ride as the Elise's. Takes the right line to be fast, but is capable of keeping up with the Lotus, but it did need the 10 extra pp to do it.

    @DaBomm4 :
    Time - 51.919
    DC - 7.5

    A spunky little tune that was a ton of fun for me, the last turn did this tune in though as it was chasing Legit's ghost. It would be with or better up to turn 3 then slightly behind, struggled to get off the final turn and watched the ghost pull away. If I could have gotten back on throttle just a tick sooner.......
    Nice tune, great job.:tup:

    @DolHaus :
    Time - 51.490
    DC - 8.0

    Good tune that I struggled with on turn 3 and the final turn (as with almost all the Elise's) but when I got them both right the time really dropped. Found aggressive throttle could cause some (manageable) oversteer otherwise no problems.

    @ImToLegitToQuit :
    Time - 51.584
    DC - 8.5

    I LOVED THIS TUNE:D, I built an MG but was not able to get nearly as quick as this one though they did feel very similar. Yours had much better exit and was sooo easy to get comfortable with, it fit my driving style and line like a glove. Once a got the last turn right with the correct line it was a pure joy, just not quite as fast as the Locusts........I mean Lotus'. Awesome Job!:D

    @Motor City Hami :
    Time - 51.142
    DC - 9.0

    For a last minute tune, it was really good. Glad to see it came together quick for you, the final turn was the only place I had issues but don't they all struggle with that tricky turn? Some felt slow to accelerate out but yours seemed to be one of the few that could get down the straight better once I got it point where I wanted.

    @Otaliema :
    Time - 51.585
    DC - 7.5

    My second best lap was 51.588, so 2 really close laps meant I found out how to drive it. The problem was it did take some time to adjust to the soft suspension and extra rear weight. I am just not a good enough driver to get the time this tune is capable of, quick when right but hard to keep the rear in check for me.

    @praiano63 :
    Time - 51.114
    DC - 9.5

    Easy to learn, easy to go fast. Best exit from the final turn and the best through turn 3, turn 2 however could have a hint of understeer if I missed my entry (which was hard to do as the tune was that good). Most of my laps all only 2-3 tenths apart. Excellent Job!

    @Ridox2JZGTE :
    Time - 52.316
    DC - 7.0

    The handling of this tune took me by surprise, not bad at all but I did struggle with it wanting to over rotate and never felt like I got a really good lap. Just did not get along with it as well as other tunes of yours I have driven.

    @shaunm80 :
    Time - 51.496
    DC - 8.0

    Awesome fun tune that pretty much could do what I wanted when I wanted. Except accelerate out of the final turn, just seemed sooo under powered compared to the others. Had to really search for the best line keeping up the most speed to get a fast lap.

    @sinof1337 :
    Time - 51.249
    DC - 9.0

    Easy driving tune that was very easy to get back on throttle, needed just a bit more rotation but the hard to complain with the time I got. This tune really fit my driving style and I was not searching for any speed. Great job.:tup:

    @xande1959 :
    Time - 51.108
    DC - 9.0

    Great tune if you hit your marks, would oversteer if pushed too aggressive with the throttle and understeer if you pushed it too deep into the corner. Would also understeer off throttle if you missed your entry on turn 2. I had 3 laps of 51.1xx and another 3 within 1 or 2 tenths, very consistent tune.:cool:

    Barely ran wide at all, the car just sort of gently lifted up to about 40 degrees and then gently landed as if nothing had happened :lol:
    Thank you for the review, glad you enjoyed the car :tup:

    Thanks for the review, very good time, i understand your point of view about the back to have a little more slip but most of my cars are like this, i like to have a safe amount of grip and less weight transfer on MR cars. I´m not so good to stay on the edge of the grip and when you pass above it the sanction is a big lost of speed.
    I´ll use this exact tune for online racing,perhaps a more agressive rear end would be better for time attack.
    Nice review, thanks for the test. Happy to know you like the car.

    :) Thank you, I have made the car too sensitive in general ( stiff springs and ARB ), this will be valuable when I will fine tune the car again :p

    Gentlemen, in building my tune sheets I have a few questions:

    @DaBomm4 standard or racing brakes?

    @demonchilde standard or racing brakes? Can you also please list horsepower/weight and weight dist. to avoid mistakes and confusion.

    @Ridox2JZGTE factory trans or fixed 5 speed?

    @shaunm80 standard rim size ONLY. To be clear, your tune will be tested on standard rims not inch up 1, sorry if it was not clear.


    @DolHaus
    @Otaliema
    @praiano63
    @ugabugaz
    As testers, please be sure to note who does and does not use front aero! Also follow responses to the questions above.

    To avoid confusion, can anyone convert/tell me what 200km/h and 260km/h are in mph?

    No problem. It may have been a type from my end to be honest. I shall change the tune sheet on my page. :)

    Did the transmission setup work as I stated? If it doesn't match perfectly now I have removed the Inch Up: 1 rims, let me know and I will sort it out.

    I have only built my "tune sheets" for reference and testing notes, will be building the cars as I tune trying to use only one of each so I am not sure. If there is an issue, someone will check with you but there should not be any problems.

    Please double check and let me know if I missed anything, updated the list for the tester.
    It happens, just looking out for everyone;)

    Luckily the racing brake upgrade doesn't make a huge amount of difference so it won't break a tune if it does go unnoticed :lol:

    Scoring sheet completed. Roadsters Times entered.
    @praiano63 and @macdog54 please check that I entered your times correclty please pretty sure I did just want you to look them over.
    British Invasion Scoring Sheet

    disreguard the Podium and fast lap data there appears to be some bad formulas this is the first real challenge this has been used on. Have to admit I just forgot to test it on the previous challenges that have been ran after I built it.
    The rankings next to the tuners name are correct though

    The podium does not match the rest of the sheet. Only thing I notice without a PC.

    yeah I noticed that too. same with the fast lap information.
    It's proabily a cross link in the formula section of the sheet. I'll go over it with a finetooth comb later. the Ranking information next to the tuner name in the upper part is correct.t I'll just hide the podiums till I can get the time to figure out whats going on

    As much as I loved seeing a DC of 9 from @Bowtie-muscle on the sheet, I believe that he gave me an 8.0 for DC which means I am going to fall down the DC leaderboard at this point in time. Nice to see a 9.0 for a few seconds though. :)

    You are correct I did typo that.

    I have fixed the podiums, for some strange reason some links went all crazy in the formula section that happen to be the lead cells for the naming parts of the results. got that sorted out and everything else is working correctly from what I can tell. Gonna check the other two sheets make sure the same thing didn't happen there.

    WTB more ballast on the DB9! grr can't get enough grip on the tail and still keep the rotation.

    edit sorry for the double post spaced out for a moment.

    No worries, is anyone planning on using the Jag? Is it because of performance or just the good looks of the DB9?

    Actually I have my Jag running 2:04's consistently, tuning up a DB9 to make sure it's not a little better.
    It has more pep but doesn't carry speed as well. Lots off outside front loading issues, under loaded in the mid-high and overloaded in low speed. :banghead:

    I'm nearly done with my DB9 (2:01.8xx) so I am going to have a look at the jag later to see what it can do

    While I am following the aero convention, does front aero actually do anything? Or is it purely cosmetic
