    I've found the most effective way is an Original Post like he has, that lists them all (in order of choice) but instead of having a spoiler for each tune, a link to the specific post, within his own thread. That way, as you stated, you check here once a week, and you can just click on the tune of choice. As of now, there's 7 tunes, so it's fairly simple to navigate. Once his tune count gets to a certain point, it can sometimes get a bit messy. Also, if you plan to check this thread once a week, it will be hard to discern what he's added in that week. When there's 50 tunes, and 8 were added this week, but all you see is 'Latest Update GT-R' you're potentially going to miss 7 tunes, because you can't remember which 43 were already there last week when you checked.

    Also, each post has an updated time stamp on it, so it automatically lets you know when it was 'Last Edited: xx.xx.xx'. When all are in a single post, it's impossible to know which tunes he has or hasn't updated, unless he goes out of his way to specifically log every single one, and keep it there permanently, which again adds unnecessary clutter.

    Mink is free to do as he wishes, I was just offering some insight, as I've gone through this with multiple tuners in the GT5 days, and when I had www.AdrenaTune.com updated with over 5,000 (yes, FIVE thousand) tunes. At some point, he might decide to try and separate the tunes into posts, or categorize them as the game grows, etc etc, and then all of the links will be dead ends.

    If a friend asks me for a good Gr.3 Corvette tune, and I want to recommend MINKIHL's, I want to be able to directly send them to it's location. Not say 'go to this thread, check the first post, and then search through all of the spoilers, and it should be in there somewhere, oh and they're listed by track, not by car, sooo... I don't know, look hard I guess'. I promise I didn't suggest it on a whim, I was simply asking out of experience.

    If not, it's okay, I wasn't trying to be disrespectful, I apologize if it came off that way. Best of luck with your garage.

    Amaru,
    I am trying your settings and the exact same steps but I can't match gears.... I've tried so many times step by step...

    My gears before moving back to 4640 are

    1st 79
    2nd 93
    3rd 103 (can't make any higher for rest)
    4th 112
    5th 122
    6th 149

    Cant figure out what I am doing wrong

    You’re a good bloke Dominik. I was struggling with Q times on Kyoto driving park. I followed your setup and am getting a lot better. Not as fast as yours and without a wheel. Keep up the great work.

    hey there, any chance of getting tunes for the M4 Gr4 and M6 Gr3? I just love the looks and sound of the beasty M6 but don't seem to get it to work very well on the nurb GP track... understeering while entering corners, oversteering exiting... It's a little better on Suzuka but still.

    I actually like having all the tunes in the first post. Don’t change a thing, it’s your thread, @MINKIHL. :)

    Dominik, this is a great thread and really appreciate you posting your setups. However, in an effort to improve at the game, I would really like to start to understand how to actually do setups myself.

    I wondered if you would consider writing some kind of guide (or making a video) on the order that you do things in to make a setup, what you look for when testing settings, how long you spend on each thing and how you judge what's good and what's bad etc... That kind of thing.

    Would make a very interesting read to know some of your methodology in going about making a new setup so we could begin to tune cars ourselves and have some idea of what we're actually doing. As it is right now, it feels a lot like random fiddling and can be difficult to discern differences between, for example, a little tweak on the dampers or downforce.

    Think you need to do the final gear first then change the speed to 124mph hope that helps

    I added gr3 BMW M6

    Afterall I make it myself sometimes a little bit easy, First i put front and back to max downforce for a course like nürburg after that if took a new car i go on track, drive around 5-10 laps and i write down how the car reacts to every corner (over or understeering), without pushing. After that i make some changes, depending of how the car reacts, sometimes LSD changes helping alot. I change the car till i find a good balance between stable and fast.
    At the end i put more grip to front for faster laptimes ( more Toe, or more camber). U can also manage the balance very good with the anti roll bar and also with the right high... At the end u need a bit feeling for the car... then go on track..push..and change the last things for more grip where it needs it.

    (sry for my bad english :/ i try my best mates to explain :) )

    For all who have Problems with my transmission settings...

    I was thinking about it and may have the problem solved:

    I always reset my trans settings, after that i put the max speed, for example to 260km/h.
    After that i go to track and check my first and 6. gear...then i adjust it after i set max speed and max gear..so maybe thats the problem

    if iam on second place during the race i try to be good to my tires and cornering very smooth, in the draft u can manage easy to stick to ur infront.
    Last 2 laps i can drive almost 1 second faster then the car infront and can make pressure... so its a good strategie to race in nürburg

    Just tried your M6 GT3 set up, I just got a 1.5 second faster lap time than what I had with the GT-R. Awesome work!!! I can't wait to try it in a race.

    By they way, do you use countersteering in setting your fast laps?
