    Excuse me @MrGrado, this point may have been addressed already so please pardon my ignorance/forgetfulness. When is the deadline for testing? If I have enough time I'm in as test crash dummy :)

    @MrGrado, Could you please contact Tuner 14 and ask for clarification of which set of wheels were used? There are 3 different sets of the model stated and I want to be sure I use the same ones they did, thanks.

    @MrGrado here are test results for Twin Ring Motega, I'll think about Cote d' Azure later that place bugs me in this car...

    All cars tested 10 laps. With a DFGT set at 7/10/10. ABS 1 only aid active.
    Track is Twin Ring Motegi East
    Car Clio V6 24V ‘00
    Tested in order of posting


    Tuner 1

    Lap Time;1:28.597 DC;7.5
    Impression;This car was lacking something….I know exit grip! The only thing that kept this car in the race was it’s acceleration. Once I figured out how to corner in it, turn in early and slip it out, It got quick but it still didn’t feel good. It felt like it wanted to go fast but just never did. This car had the best recovery of the cars, but I think that stability is was cost it.


    Tuner 14;
    Lap time;1:28.672 DC ;7.4
    Impressions; This was an interesting car. It was stable, it was responsive. But it was also unstable and unreliable, If i was off even by a little bit I would lose one end of the car. It under steered at entry and over steered at exit. Needs little more balance. Just do what it wants not what you want and it


    Tuner 17;
    Lap Time;1:29.074 DC;6.8
    Impressions;This car was stable but hard to drive hard. Once I started pushing to start shaving time, I found the car Mr. Hyde persona, it doesn’t like being unsettled, it won’t recover well, from a slide. I lost more good laps in one of the chicanes at TRM-E than anything else, come in just a few km/h too hot and the back just went away.


    Tuner 11;

    Lap TIme;1:27.684 DC;8.9
    Impressions of the tune. Very well balanced car. Did what I asked when I asked but reminded me it is still a “MR” drive train if I went little too crazy. Good recovery at mid speed. Good top speed and exit grip was great. Just felt like it was lacking something, I dunno personality maybe? It just felt dead, fast but dead.

    There are results for tests in Twin Ring Motegi East

    All cars tested 15 laps with DFGT set ar 7/10/8. ABS 1 and Others inactive.

    Track in Twin Ring Motegi East
    Car Clio V6 24V '00
    Tested in order of posting

    Tuner 1:

    Lap Time : 1:29:497 DC : 6,8
    late braking to thus rule out difficulty dose because too hard. A car that tends to stay right in the curves . You can not speed up early because the body Improve rigidity makes the car not flexible . D' or difficulty to take some corners quickly. A gearbox very nice and fast . A road holding but the installation of body rigidity Improve ruins everything .

    Tuner 14 :

    Lap Time : 1:28:966 DC: 8,9
    A easy car to handle. It is very flexible in the technical part of double and single S. A smooth and effective braking that allows late braking and quickly out of the curves. I could have 9 but there is a small downside is the gearbox . Too slow for my taste. Not enough responding and responsiveness. Pity

    Tuner 17 :

    Lap Time : 1:29:031 DC: 7,5
    A flexible car very manageable in the corners. It takes the rope easily . By cons out of corners during acceleration that's another story. Loss of control when accelerating from behind. So this results in a loss consequent time because you have to constantly against shine out of corners .

    Tuner 11 :

    Lap Time : 1'28'528 DC: 9

    an easy grip. A very handy and flexible car which allows input / output very fast in all corners. A very pleasant accelerating out of turn certainly had a very nice responsive gearbox. There is however a small problem: by the time the car lost control during cornering by S. The reason : I do not know but it's weird.

    @MrGrado Here's my results.

    Testing at Motegi East Course and Cote d'Azur conducted with DS3 (Stick) and X and [_] buttons. C.S.S=2 Abs = 1 and everything else off as per F.I.T.T standard practices.
    Testing was conducted over 4 days, one car per day, with runs being conducted back to back in random order.

    Tuner -1
    D.C score = 7.6
    Motegi time - 1:28.298
    Feedback;
    Pretty easy to get used to and consistent. but nothing spectacular. Balance was not bad, but I felt a little soft in the tail. Drivetrain really let this one down. There was quite a lot of inner rear wheel slip on corner exit in most cased and when it didn't spin up, there was a little bog going on. Brake balance I felt hurt a little too. Could have went a good half second faster with better BB settings...but this is a personal preference thing ;).

    Cote d'Azur time - 1:43.237
    Feedback:
    Predictable and stable round here. This was the last car tested and I did find it to handle pretty well with only a slight.....well noticeable, understeer in the harder braking zones. Not the best through the slower corners but great in the mid speed bits. Best through the 1st section of all 4 cars for me.

    Felt like it should have been quicker than it was.

    Tuner - 14
    D.C score = 8.0
    Motegi time - 1:28.058
    Feedback:
    Took a while to find this thing's likes and dislikes. Brakes were pretty good, worked well enough and didn't have the jumpy feeling I got from others. I think this thing needs to be driven a little smoother than I normally do to get the best out of. I could tell it's capable of quicker times than I was getting, Just feels a little soft in places. I feel the rear lacks a little support in the higher speed corners and direction changes.

    Cote d'Azur time : 1:43.349
    Feedback:
    This felt the most natural of all the cars here to me. Didn't get upset by the kerbs bit I still think that rear needs a bit more support in the bends. Little stiffer rear springs would work for me. Might help cut down on some of the understeer on entry to slower corners too.

    Pretty solid effort. not too far off from being the complete package.

    Tuner - 17
    D.C score = 7.6
    Motegi time - 1:28.158
    Feedback:
    This one was a little odd. I felt the handling was pretty good, the brakes were pretty good and the LSD was my favourite of all....but the transmission just felt a little weak compared to a couple of the others. Corner entry was superb, exit, not so much and direction changes were a bit hit and miss (didn't like the right, left all that much but really liked the left right)

    Cote d'Azur time !:43.748
    Feedback:
    Actually did a bit better here than the time suggests :guilty: I just couldn't find it's groove in the first half of the lap at all. From the chicane onwards it was just fine, really fun through the swimming pool. Still having the same issues with the transmission, meaning I can't quite get the power on as early as I would like.


    Tuner - 11
    D.C score = 8.5
    Motegi time: 1:27.272
    (Yes, really :))
    Feedback: A little bit tail happy at times and a little jumpy in the back half of the track (climbing up the hill after the tunnel). Springs were a bit soft for my tastes but balance was pretty good. Seemed to lack a bit of punch out of a few corners but got down the straight bits really well.
    A driving style adjustment was needed to find this thing's sweet spot. But once I did I was able to put down fairly consistent times in the last half-dozen laps. Really should have got down into the 1:26s in my hands and probably would given another session.

    Monaco time:1:42.846
    Feedback
    :Much the same as before but with less jumpy here :tup:. Brakes I felt could have been better, I felt on the downhill sections there was a lack of bite that wasn't there at Motegi. Also there was a bit of understeer in the slower corners from Casino square down to the sea front. Pulled like a train up the hill and had nice balance. Real good in the second half of the track.

    @MrGrado

    This is a result with no improve body rigidity for the tuner 1

    Old result with improve body rigidity :
    Lap Time : 1'29'497 DC: 6,8

    New result without improve body rigidity :
    Lap Time : 1'28'607 DC: 7,3
    a car a little easier to use. But there remains the problem of brakes too hard . late braking excluded if the car slides forward and escapes from the rope. A slightly soft car even if it's one of the best times . An inner wheel that tends to slip when the overshoot .

    @Jeje6410 @Thorin Cain
    Thank you taking the time to test. Sorry haven't posted sooner. Been pre-occupied with the TT's.
    Looks like I was a bit off on the drivability of my car this time. I think I'm over tuning -_-

    My pleasure sir :) Glad I could be of some use. And it was fun taking these out :tup: Nice choice of tracks and a little fire cracker of a car to take around.

    Can't honestly comment on which one was yours. I had a guess penciled in as tuner 11 :confused:
