    Either you are consistent, or two really close tunes.

    Nice work! two very close tunes by the sounds of it. Looking forward to when you have finished the class now. See which two tunes are the identical twins.

    I bet @biffa3 color coded his Chassis reinforeced and standard frame cars and it's not by tuner. Just have to wait see which is which.

    That's smarter than me. But mine is still yellow and it's not looking good. :lol:

    I was figuring he was running your or my car in yellow.

    Go back and run those yellow cars, biffa3!

    No way for me to guess my spot if he has tested it yet. My car is either very fast or pretty slow it just depends on if the driver gets along with it

    @Otaliema is correct. Colours signify reinforcement only.

    That makes sense to me, I had two cars, each painted a different colour so I knew which was Chassis reinforced and which was not. Saved me from any confusion when testing.

    No problem. Forgot to mention, don't look at the corner at 0:38-0:44 (YouTube time) - I hit the brakes too early and lost like 0.200

    Old School RUF Class Testing


    @TheInfamousJEW6
    Best Lap Time - 1:33.996
    DC - 7
    Tune Comments - Gear box works fine. Brake balance great. Good on bumps. The major flaws inherent in the bawse car are well controlled. There is still quite a bit of movement in the suspension when not driven smoothe, but very little in lap time sacrificed. The tune could be improved for mid corner performance.


    @hall90
    Best Lap Time - 1:34.057
    DC - 7
    Tune Comments - The tune was controllable while sliding. I recovered from situations I didn't expect to get out of. I think this car will perform when driven a certain way.

    @Motor City Hami
    Best Lap Time - 1:32.347
    DC - 9
    Tune Comments - Great tune. For me, this was easy to drive fast straight away. My fastest lap was done on lap one. There might be more grip and speed to be found with lower ride height and wheel alignment changes. One thing that might hold the secret to this tunes performance is the low bound and high rebound. It can work miracles in some difficult to tune cars.

    @ugabugaz
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.170
    DC - 10
    Tune Comments - Last to be tested and tested for one lap only (very tired). Bang! Fastest lap. Bang! DC10. Easy. (Same way I set up a lot of my gear boxes also:tup:) What is the secret to this tune being fast? Ride heights, spring rates and low dampers I guess. (oh, and light, no ballast!).

    @steve nfs
    Best Lap Time - 1:32.575
    DC - 6.5
    Tune Comments - Difficult to drive well.

    @xande1959
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.820
    DC - 7
    Tune Comments - Fast but it drives a little funny. The brakes seem too soft. The car can go into a slow drift on corner exit. It's hard to pin down exactly, but the tune feels strange, maybe it's corner entry, maybe it's too much ballast at the front of the car. I was fast even on lap one with this tune. It is difficult to go from fast laps to very fast laps with this tune.

    @shaunm80
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.910
    DC - 9
    Tune Comments - Very high grip overall, just a little loose in the rear which can be dangerous. Extreme care needs to be take when driving extremely fast. If it is possible to find more rear grip, this tune would be improved. Some tweaks on this tune I tried at first didn't help, but if your interested, see if you prefer the tune with rear springs at 9.50 and rear roll bar on 7.

    @Rotary Junkie
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.383
    DC - 10
    Tune Comments - A tune that loves throttle. This car doesn't need mirrors, the side windows serve the purpose of seeing where you have been much better. This is a twisted miscreation that loves to be tortured! Well done. With a little bit of restraint in the right places, this can go very fast.

    @coryclifford
    Best Lap Time - 1:32.747
    DC - 6.5
    Tune Comments - Loose in the rear. It really shouldn't be with the setting you have but this contest is a level above in terms of tuning difficulty. I was having no luck with this tune getting a fast lap until I slowed down a little. There is a reasonably fast car here despite the difficult handeling! With a high rear roll bar, this has improved handeling and gets a faster lap.

    @reefer
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.691
    DC - 9
    Tune Comments - Fast tune. Could go faster with more power parts installed and some limiter used. Good fun to drive.

    Thanks for the kind words @MrGrado! I really appreciate the time you took to do these reviews! And as always any and all feedback on my tunes are welcomed with open arms as it'll only make me a better tuner in the long run! :cheers:

    It can be hard to score and comment on the first tune in testing. I might take a second look at a few of the early tunes a litte later.

    This is true indeed. For this reason, we have been trialling a new DC scoring system where tunes are rated in order of preference rather than scoring DC from 0-10. Hopefully it will work better and make it easier on testers too.

    Also, Thank you for the reviews so far, I am happy with the comments (about my tune) you mentioned and it seems to be a common thought so far among all the testers. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the reviews as they come in.

    Thanks :tup:

    It definitely takes a bit more than ten laps to get settled into my car. Took me about 1000. :lol:
