I did not change much from stock on this car. It is a very well handling car from the race engineer. Posting this just so that I can remember the little that I did change. I expect to revisit this car in the future. It was a fun ride.

This car is fun, but a bit of a handful on corner exit. It likes to snap loose if you are at 100% throttle from the apex. This car is true to the old driving technique which calls for the driver to imagine a string attached between the steering wheel and the throttle pedal. The more you unwind the wheel, the more throttle you can apply. I think there may be some more fine tuning available on the LSD? A fun, but sometimes frustrating car.

I am enjoying your tunes. It is really great to see your postings in Project Cars. How do you find this game compared to GT6? Outside of navigating the menu, to me, it equal to GT6 with an edge in the car notes. Thank you for your work

Thanks. I am glad that you are enjoying these early tunes. As for Pcars, below are my thoughts.

Physics and driving - best racing game that I have ever played.

Tuning - I don't think I have found the sweet spot yet, but so far, the cars are pretty good in stock form and minor changes make them more comfortable. I do miss the challenge of GT6 where if you get a tune right, it is worth 2+ seconds a lap on the track. Not everyone can tune to that level in GT6, nor is that realistic to the real world. So tuning is kind of a draw between the titles for differing reasons. Project Cars is very much more real world and the gains come in smaller increments so tuning can take longer to really nail it. With GT6, you know within a lap or two if your new tune settings made an impact. Some settings do almost nothing and some are so non-real world wacky, but if you can get past that, the challenge is fun.

Career mode - Mostly in favor of Project Cars. I love the race for a team thing and get email invites to drive for others. I love the practice, qualify then race setup. The AI stay more grouped together and are not afraid to pass you back multiple times in a race. In GT6 it seems that once you clear an AI driver, his skills drop by 25% and all he does is disappear in your mirror. Plus, the GT Series has always favored the rabbit where one or two cars jump out to a huge lead - you are really only racing against two cars with a bunch of terrible breaking zone drivers in your way.

My Garage - Pcars has a plus and a minus. I like that you can drive any car right from the start of the game. I like the multiple race liveries provided for each car. Everything is open, but it does not feel like it is "my garage." It just feels like borrowing a car to race with. If it were "my garage" then the game would either allow me to always pick the green car or recognize that I always pick the green cars and organize the garage content accordingly. I wish that we could select the cars to be present in "my garage" and have better sorting abilities. I also do kinda miss winning a race and winning a car like the older days of GT and in Forza. Collecting cars and really feeling my achievement in the game just by opening the garage door is pretty cool in those titles. Forza 6 has the formula right between working hard to achieve and being able to afford expensive cars.

Menus and game navigation - sucks in Pcars. It's all there and probably uber adjustable, but you just need to figure out what it is and what it changes. The game is really incomplete when it comes to in game descriptions of settings, even in the controller options menu. And things like traction control and ABS should be adjustable in the career mode within the individual race, not all the way back out three screens and into controller options. I drive with no assists in Pcars, but every so often end up in a single weekend race in an unfamiliar car with lots of power. It would be nice to easily add a click of traction control for that one event and move on. I describe Pcars navigation as clunky.

The best measure of which game I like best is in the amount of time I am spending playing them. Right now it's this:
Project Cars 70% of the time
Forza 6 at 20%
Battlefield 4 at 10%
GT6 at 0%

Just an idea - could you somehow indicate what default values you have changed in setup or write down what was default value. Thanks.

Thank you for your very quick and complete reply, with which, I completely agree. Hopefully the shortcomings will be addressed in the near future and PC will be 100%.

Hami. Are these tunes for PC, PS4, XONE, or does it matter? Enjoyed your tunes in GT-6, but haven't played since I switched to PC in December. Does it make a difference that I use a T500rs. P.S. Dearborn rules, Edsel Ford class of '67.

Sorry that I am late to respond this summer. Just moved across town and the racing rig was packed away until tonight.

I own the PC version and the XBOX version and see zero difference in the way cars handle or how they respond to tuning.

I played for an hour tonight and knocked a bit of the rust off the driving skills. Tuned the Renault Clio touring car a bit. Project Cars is such a deep experience. This is the closest to real world that I have driven.

Renault Clio Cup

Back after a bit of hiatus (moving to a new house, new job and new school for the kid takes time). I bought the PC version of Project Cars and started a new career mode. The Clio Cup car is a real handful. It's not much fun to drive straight from the race engineer. Well behaved under braking, but very loose just past the apex... out of control loose (oversteer). I spent time playing with settings in an effort to calm the car on exit without killing corner entry. Below is my set final up.

Driving tip: Brake a little earlier than needed to get lined up with the apex. Begin applying throttle (not mashed, just roll into it) before clipping the apex.
