    Nouvelle Vague (French for New Wave) Tuning is my first attempt at tuning. I'm totally new to the tuning game and as such, my tunes may not be the greatest when they come down to it. But I'm opening the shop today and the first car..

    a 2006 Ford Focus ST-S AWD (C-425)

    The Paint Job is Performance Blue (as given by the FM4 Color Creation database) and comes standard with a white stripe background on both sides between the wheel wells. The one shown in the photo comes with a Sparco logo on the license plate holder in the back, and is only available on the one shown.

The car now comes standard as a C-425, with 190 hp and 223 ft-lbs of torque, weighing in at 3,057 lbs. Not bad for a little hybrid. The tune is up on my storefront, free for purchase. And the paint and body kit will be up for free as well.

    And for those who want the SC300-S tune, it is now 1,000CR
     
  4. A few tips my friend:

    1. Never upgrade the flywheel
    2. Never upgrade the intercooler or oil and cooling (PI is best spent on engine parts that reduce weight, not add to it)
    3. Only use a turbo if it's the only thing available (Centrifugal is best if it's available)
    4. No need for chassis reinforcement in a C class car, adds far to much weight

    You should look to be losing as much weight as possible while adding as much grip as possible for a track like catalunya.
    I'd also add full forza aero but reduce the downforce to minimum when tuning it.

    I agree with everything, especially weight reduction, but why not the fly wheel? As far as I'm concerned all it does is reduce weight.

    Thanks for the tips... just starting the tuning procedure after playing each forza game since the first.
    I almost never throw the full race aerodynamic parts onto a car unless that's what I'm looking for. The oil and cooling I balance with the brakes or anti-roll bars. And the Centrifugal charger actually weighs a bit more and makes less overall power than the turbo, so why go for that? And why no flywheel? Isn't the point of the perfect tune for a car a balance between power and stability?

    Top Gear Results for TommyKaira and Kenstyle Prius-
    (I don't know what assists I have on. LOL.)
    Kenstyle- 1:34.831 DIRTY
    TommyKaira- 1:36.489 CLEAN
     
  9. Turbo gives you all the power in one big lump, only use it if there is no other conversion available. Centrifugal does weigh more but it delivers the power more evenly and gives you the extra torque when you need it

    The only time you should upgrade the flywheel is when there is nothing else to use the PI on. It uses more PI than on something else, e.g. lighter rims or the driveline etc

    Good point with the flywheel, considering that is the last thing I pick to hit the top of the class.

    This is the standard tune and it comes in a standard Ferrari Nero Daytona and Rosso Dino two-tone paint job a la 612 Sessanta. A custom order can get it in any two-tone or monotone paint job they would like it to be in, as well as any tuning setup they would like.

    The 600 Nuovo #2 (Nero Daytona monotone) will be available at the auction house for 140,000cr.

    Details on a second GT will be out sometime today. The GT in question is missing an iteration, but that is because said iteration doesn't come out until 2015.

    A GT may not always be front engined, as this car will let you know. It may not always be European (in fact there are a few Japanese GTs out there). It's a car some people have rarely seen on the road, and fewer still drive it like it's a mad car. The beautiful GT in question on offer today is the NV Tuning Silver Line NSX.

    The Silver Line of cars come in Silver monotone (or per request two-tone) paint jobs. The Acura NSX '97 Silver Line comes in Silverstone Metallic.

    Details on the tuning
    The Silver Line Acura NSX '97 comes with a Hood built by Backyard Special (a la Honda NSX-R) and Motegi Racing Traklite 2.0 rims as the cosmetic upgrades (a decrease of 36 lbs)

    The car started its life at NV Tuning as a B471 with 276 hp, 224 ft-lbs of torque and weighing in at 2,998 lbs. The NV Tuning Silver Line Acura NSX '97 is available as an A600 with 366 hp, 267 ft-lbs of torque and weighing in at 2,804 lbs.

    Took a Test Run of the car on Nurburgring GP. It's not a bad car, just a little tail happy.

    The Silver Line NSX will be available from my storefront. Price for the tune 2000cr. The price for the car, 50000cr (or reasonable trade offer).

    Just bought and tested the Silver Line NSX tune. It is a pleasure to drive, and well worth the 2,000Cr. Nice work.

    NV Tuning has decided to focus its efforts on the GT cars, the Silver Line and customer orders. The owner is sorry for the inconvenience this might bring on.
