Fast car, not fully refined yet.

Really enjoyed driving this around Madrid. Turning was smooth and tight at all speeds. I like how each corner feels like 1 connected movement of the car as opposed to the entry, mid and exit feeling different and requiring adjusted inputs to compensate for understeer or oversteer (if that makes sense). I'm amazed at how quiet your tires are compared to my tune. After taking your tune for some laps, I got back in my tune and my tires just wouldn't shut up:lol:
My first 6 laps in your car each got faster which I thought was awesome. This would have definitely been the cream of the crop in the shootout. Nice work again 👍

Thank you, by the way.

Same as the '63 Corvette tune directly above this, I tuned at Silverstone then took the car to Willow Springs. I tried tuning this car in the first month that GT6 came out and absolutely hated it. Now that I have decoded more of how tuning works in GT6, I think I have fixed this car. I have no clue how I will use this car in racing events, but it has become so fun to drive that I just don't care. You must drive this car using the interior view. It looks so cool and sounds so good. Drive this car just for the pure joy of driving. There are plenty of muscle cars that are faster, but few so fun.

The car still has one bad habit that you have to be ready for. It does not like trail braking. Do most of your braking in a straight line with just a touch of trail braking at the end. It gets loose on entry as you release the brakes. I have tuned much of the condition out of the car, but over do corner entry and it will bite you.

I love both of these cars and you are right - they are a handful but boy what fun. They aren't that slow either, both can easily win the 600pp tour of America races. Anyway, I will put up with a lot for those nice engine noises. :)

I'm glad you made this tune. I decided to dust off the Scirocco this weekend as I haven't used it since the Scirocco seasonal. Your tune improved my lap times by a few seconds! I still don't like how this car feels though. I'm not saying anything bad about your tune, I just think the car feels slow all the time, even if its lap times are on par with other cars of similar pp. Cheers!

Tested for about an hour tonight. Improved the car a bit more, but it is still an odd car. I pulled out every trick that I know to make a car rotate. I was burning the front tires off when I first started testing tonight. Now the outside front can turn red if pushing too hard, but it is at least manageable. Give it a try and let me know where it is good and where it struggles with your driving style.

Sweet!, always nice to see a fresh tune from you Hami. I will purchace this car and add it to the stable..... But I'm just curious, and I have to ask, any particular reason you chose this car to focus on, for a new track tune??? I dig the rally cars too but again, of all the rally cars to choose....??? and a track tune for a rally car?? I hope you appreciate the question, I am certainly not trying to question you, more interested in thought processes.
Thanks man!!

It was a request sent to me in a private message. When someone asks for a tune to use for a racing series, I usually wait to post it until after their series is over.

I still have like 20 finished tunes that I have not had time to post. I need to get to that soon.

Hey @Motor City Hami, was wondering if you recommend your transmission tuning method for NASCAR on ovals? Most of the trans tunes people have shared online are different from the methods from gtplanet.

I use the same method for NASCAR. I just don't know any other way. For Road Course racing, the flip trick that I do still works very well. For Daytona where you will be in the high revs most of the time, I'm not sure that it matters much. I have seen attempts at three speed oval transmissions, but the ones I have tested were not faster.

After work I'll give you method a try. I am tuning for Motegi. I use a 3 speed at Daytona and run low 43.7s. That trans setting was from a friend of mine.

@killerjimbag is more of an expert on NASCAR than I am so if he says something different than me, I would for sure test it.

For Motegi, I would run a four speed. With the need for a downshift in turns 3 & 4, I could see a three speed lugging a little.

My trans method is all about managing 2nd gear and controlling wheel spin off the corners. This is best suited for road racing. I just haven't liked any other way for the gear box so I also used it on my NASCARs.

Thanks for the insight. I have raced with a beta player aka @killerjimbag. He is a good driver.

I'm running low 32.4s. Getting out ran by guys running 32.0xxs.

@Motor City Hami, once again, thanks for all of your expertise and the huge amount of time and effort you have invested in analyzing the game's physics. I thoroughly appreciate your tuning guides and advice.

I prefer to tune my cars myself from scratch rather than starting with someone else's tune so I really appreciate your troubleshooting guide. I do have one question though regarding your suggestions on how to address certain issues. I may have missed it somewhere, but could you please define what you are classifying as "slow", "medium" and "high" speed corners? What speed points are you using to classify them?

For example, I would consider any corner with a speed of 60mph or lower as slow speed since aero has minimal impact here, and anything above 110mph as a high speed corner. Are your definitions similar or different?

Thanks.

It isn't so much about mph. It is more about corner shape. How far do you need to rotate the car. High Speed Ring has mostly high speed corners. A track like Silverstone has many different corners.

Silverstone fast: Abby, Farm Curve, Woodcote, Chapel

Silverstone medium: Aintree, Brooklands, Corpse, Maggotts, Becketts, Stowe

Silverstone slow: Village, The Loop, Luffield, Vale, Club

I'm really new to this. I need a more beginner way to navigate your garage. As. I learn more I'll know how to ask the. right questions. But I need to find tunes not comments. Ty for understanding from a frustrated beginner

Welcome to GT Planet. Where would you like to start? What car are you working with right now and how does it handle for you?
