Thank`s for all your time and work helping the community with some great tunes.
Thanks, springerman! I hope my arias have helped you enjoy GT7 more.Thank`s for all your time and work helping the community with some great tunes.
The last pic cuts off the tuning and body upgrades, mind reposting that?Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm 2020
This is a monster street car, with 6.5 pounds per HP! It is unlikely that you can just jump into the driver's seat and casually drive around tricky tracks. Take the time to acclimate to its weight and torque. Before trying to enhance its already high performance, familiarise yourself as it is, close to stock, first.
This aria tries to deal with its weight shifting, but it still brakes fairly well. The brake bias toward the rear will help a bit with front tire wear. Nothing will help with its fuel guzzling, though. The gears do help with wheelspin on standing starts.
Thanks Master, I want to put this set up on mine and give it a go. Hopefully we'll use 'TUNED' Road Cars one of these days and we can see which of the road cars (all of them in one race) at a PP,, say 650 or 700 might be the quickest lap time. Yes I saw your set up isn't that high a PP but we can use some power adders. Anyway, Thanks for sharing this.Ford Mustang Gr.3 Road Car
At first blush, this is a very pleasant car to drive even in stock form. However, this aria was set up using Sport Hard tires and not stickier tires because its weight make the tires stick so well that more grip is unnecessary. By the time that I tried Sport Soft tires, there was no life left in its handling.
This is a preliminary aria based on a quick need, so expect further refinements later. Feedback on it is welcomed.
Glad to help, Daduce1947. Coincidentally, I just added another Road Car aria now.Hopefully we'll use 'TUNED' Road Cars one of these days and we can see which of the road cars (all of them in one race) at a PP,, say 650 or 700 might be the quickest lap time.

I hope that I can inspire your tuning.Hi.
I'm doing something similar. I like to keep the cars in my GT garage stock. Stock weight, stock power & stock transmission. I like to keep the ride height close(ish) to stock height too, but will lower around 20mm maximum if needed to help the car handle better.
The only upgrades i buy is all the comfort & sports tyres, all suspension & LSD upgrades. That's it.
You can get pretty good setups just using the Street or Sports Suspension with the LSD setup correctly. I don't have that much time to spend tuning cars, testing, making adjustments, testing etc etc but i do have a few that i enjoy driving now.
I think your garage will be useful to me & i can't wait to try some of your setups.
I used to tune my own cars in all the previous GT's but as i've got older, i'm so bored of the tuned/customized look. I much prefer the original look, so for GT7 i thought it would be fun to keep the cars looking as stock as possible but to have them handling better.I hope that I can inspire your tuning.
There is nothing sacred about GT default settings. Knowing some of the car data PDI need to input a car into the game, what we see on the player end has little relation to the real car. Owners of the real GT Award cars, for example, have to send in somewhere around 90 data points, some of them are so specific that the designing engineers have to go digging or testing, to figure them out. That is not what we get.
We can tell just by looking at the default settings that they are contrived. Most of the time, they aren't even good. For example, their Fully Customisable Differential is a "black box" that doesn't work as it should in real life. I fully ignore the defaults, overall. I may use them, but only as a starting point. Our challenging MNR events are a testbed, to fully adjust a car without extras, such as wings or using unnecessarily sticky tires which mask the real tuning problems.
If you want to challenge your tuning skills, I would highly recommend joining us every Monday evening.

While I recognise that some GT7 players will ignore this expensive, antique car, it still warrants an aria, for those who do want to use it. The default settings easily exhibit loss of rear control, even with its low HP, and now you can keep from spinning out better. It's not as bad as you may expect. It will be interesting to see how this car competes against others in the same PP range.
Please, let me know what you think of its performance.
OK, it looks as if there are 5 tracks to test on, so I will see what I can do with it.Hi there
Love what you have done with the Alfa GTam! What a joy to drive and consistently fast.
Have just started playing around with your ‘73 R/S and really like it, but wondered if you are considering doing an enhanced one at 580 for the classic races. Turning one of them into a quasi 2.8 RSR has turned mine into an absurdly enjoyable car and there are some great tracks for it in the classic races (GV, Nurburgring of note) should make quite the aria!
