Got a chance to try out the Skyline tunes. Good stuff. I think I like the ‘97 Skyline better for performance, but I dig the style of the ‘94.
 
Fittipaldi EF7 VGT - Gr. X
5UPoC4.jpg

It's her world and we're just livin' in it. We can't modify the transmission or camber which limits a few things we can do. The camber makes this tune really difficult to balance between low speed exit stability and high speed turning similar to the Audi R8 LMS car. I think the trade off is balanced in this respect. While you may need to lift/brake for the high speed chicane after the downhill right, you'll gain that speed back in every other turn, especially at the beginning. No mileage upgrades were done to the car.

I can try and give it another look, but with it being an FF car (IIRC), the suspension is likely that way to dial out the massive understeer. What track are you using?


Jerome
by them setting I'm looking at and my experience with real racing are you not better running alot more front down force and less rear as I'm thinking that them setting will suffer from understeer or is it the wrong physics from gts behalf. thanks I'm new to gts so just finding my feet

You can certainly try reducing the rear DF. There's many ways to skin a cat as they say. I tend to prefer high rear DF because I find that cars don't suffer that much from lower top speed in GT games. So it's nice to have the added control/stability.


Jerome
 
Hey Jerome. Can you tame the 458 on SS? This car is fast but as unstable as a car can be.:D

Sure thing man, I'll try to get to it in the next few days. Maybe tonight if the kids co-operate :lol:
What track did you have in mind?

Ferrari 458 Italia - N600

If she only had a wing #daydream. My first tip is to keep her stable, just for simple increased acceleration. While she will be forgiving if you hit the gas too soon, you'll feel her slide around and the acceleration speed on exit will suffer. Not a lot, but I use it as a sort of limit indicator, if you push her too hard, you'll spin. Also she is very deceptive, you don't know you are going almost 200mph, you just don't feel it. But believe me when I say mind the brake markers, she takes forever to slow down. No mileage upgrades were done to the car.

So, how many tries does it normally take until you're satisfied with a tune?

95% of the time, just one session (1-2 hours typically). Some cars I need to do some work, take a break (a few hours or a day later) and try again. And a handful of cars I'll have to start completely over the next day because the path I went down didn't work out. When that happens I keep the tuning sheet as a reference to avoid some of the same pitfalls again the 2nd time around.

Really enjoyed your Fittipaldi tune, by the way. Looking forward to the 458.

Speaking of Ferrari, I've been looking into a good tune for the 512 BB. Is that something you might be up for?

Hmmm, now that you mention it, I realized I skipped over that car. I'll put her at the front of the line :)

Thanks Jerome. :cheers: I will revisit the gardens because this one kicked my :eek: in the Ferrari Challenge. I would finally catch the 458 in first just to get bumped out of the way in the last couple of turns. 🤬
Finally got the win but would like to go back and show him who's boss. You know what I mean? :D
 
Ferrari 512 BB - N400

I completely spaced on posting this tune when it debuted via DLC. At any rate, she should be ready for just about anything. As always with RWD cars, watch the exit, and brake a skosh early to ensure she's balanced entering the turns. if you do that, be brave on the exits :) No mileage upgrades were done to the car.

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) - N500

This is another one of those cars that handles pretty well fresh off the showroom floor. This 'Vette felt a little sluggish in the turns and dropping the LSD to the values below helped a lot with not just handling during the turn, but allowed more freedom with the other settings. This should be a universal tune; just set the transmission as necessary. No mileage upgrades were done to the car.

Renault Sport Clio R.S. EDC 220 Trophy ('15 & '16) - N200

Very minor changes here, I picked this car because I knew it's older counterpart could use the same tune (and to have another FF in the books). I know my Megane tune was pretty stiff initially before I revamped it, this should be smoother. The car specs are for the '16 year model, but the tune is identical for both, just set the top speed to 149 (or whatever the track requires). No mileage upgrades were done to the car.

Do you think a tune for the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 would be identical like those Clio Trophy cars you did recently?

I gave it a go it had favour for tyre wear off but front tyres didn't last long when on. but thanks for the pointer's and helpful on speed on the straights
