The Flying Finn
Welcome to a tuning shop ran by two Finnish guys willing to share their tuning experience with you! The cars may seem odd, the setups may seem odd but believe me, every little thing has been thoroughly tested out. We aim to produce the most enjoyable driving experience, even if it means losing half a second on a lap. After all, it will be the faster way in a long run. The lap times you see below are not perfect laps, just some benchmark times that could undoubtedly be bettered.
The system on these two opening posts is simple. You'll see banners - acting as hyperlinks - with the names of the cars, made out of the colours of the vehicles. Every banner also sports a time, driven on Grand Valley Speedway using the exact settings posted. Next to the banners there are smaller squares indicating the tyre classes of the cars. Have a good time and please give feedback!
As a helping feature we've added skill level badges on the banners. They display the level of experience needed to drive the car right on its limits, a short explanation follows.
Oh, about giving the feedback... we have a good deal for you. Try out one or more of our cars, write a small review (really a review, not "the car is OK") about it, give us a car that you would like to be tuned to certain level and we'll PM it to you. Keep it sensible though, we're not guinea pigs for you to make fun about. No race cars as we've specialized in road models. Drifters possible but not recommended. More instructions in Post #11. Point the request PM to the builder the car you reviewed.
If you want to quote the setup post, please keep it down to the essentials. Partly because quoting an entire post doesn't do too much good for the readability of the thread but mainly because the setup may be changed and we don't want people making a review based on the setup they found in the quote when browsing the thread as it may differ quite greatly from the improved version.
Below the car banners there's one more, linking to a complete (occasionally out of date though) list of our cars in .xls format. In case you don't have a suitable program for opening it go ahead and download OpenOffice for free. 👍
