Does anyone else find this crazy under-steery? Just tried at Grand Valley. Didn't like....
Crazy understeer ? Perhaps some wrong number ? Ballast or ride height ?.... No understeer or crazy understeer at all in my opinion.
EDIT: Perhaps you feel a sudden understeer , almost a lost of direction ?? It can happen on some track , during down a compression normally.

SF23 Super Formula / Honda '23 - 947 PP - Racing Soft Tires - Fuji - 1.32

New update after some races testing best options. Final 2d at 3 seconds with some mistakes. To do 8 laps after first pit , 7/8 , a lighter car help to save some rubber . Use Brake balance +5 and never late brake 1st turn and before chicane. It pay better and save a lot of tires.
I use TC1. Up to you. Tomorrow i'll win this Fuji race. Very good race indeed.

EDIT: ANTI LAG SYSTEM STRONG ON

Great tune. I used it on my SF19. Worked perfectly. Won all three menu races with it. Thanks.
 
Final win the event , no mistake laping 1:23 high 1 stop 7 pit 8 , i love the car and event. AI seems not so bad as before. At least with this car and track.

Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type A (FD) '02 - 700PP - Racing Hard tires - All tracks - SWAP - 1.27

Wide Car
Rims (Up to you) Width Wide Offset Wide
Front A - Side A - Rear B - Wing Custom
Engine Swap : R26B-787B (Mazda 787B)
This is a new version for this car with rear diffuser , The performance are the same as the "No diffuser" at the end , but the superior grip turn the car more fun , with a great precision at the wheel. It's not a top top car 700PP on the Nordschleife , excelent on SPA or any technical turny track.
You can use the car on Sardenia 800PP with max front downforce and Racing medium tires.
The main interest is at le Mans event. You can do 4 laps FM1 with the engine of 787B. Easy to lap under to 4 minutes.

Excellent update. Thanks.
 
Ford GT LM RC Spec II GR3 - 730 PP - Racing Hard tires - All Tracks - 1.31

Almost as fast as the Audi R8 EVO , just take care with the huge torque that can provoke some wheel spin out slow & medium speed corner.

I used this tune for the 2017 Ford GT. I used the default racing trans 370 top speed, equally spacing the gears, maxing out first gear. I fully tuned it, (including the titanium rods). At 700pp, it’ll hit 202 mph and run 3:57. Maxed out, it‘ll hit 231 mph and run 3:40. Gets 2.3 laps on FM6.

Fun car. If you ever get one, I’m sure you can make it better.

Strange. All numbers and settings 100% like yours.

Could you try it on Grand Valley Reverse track and let me know whether it steers ok? For me it just barely steers and cannot get around the corners properly

I’ve noticed it too since the update - strange is a good way to describe it. Almost like you lose 90% of your steering. I was using a controller. Happened to me on Spa also
 
Agreed, great tune. And first thing I did was run it at Tokyo with SH tires. Loads of fun. Today I'll up it to 700 and try LeMans and others. I'm curious if I'll still be able to get a good 600pp tune out of it after I add weight reduction 2 and 3 for the 700pp tune. If not I guess I'll have to buy another one :)


Just bought this the other day from UCD but haven't raced it yet. Saw this tune and wondered how it would be without the engine swap (didn't have GT7 when all the free engines were being thrown around).

Thanks for confirming. I'll give it a try.
Yeah, the DeTomaso with the stock 351 windsor is a nice car. I souped up my 351 and used the settings for the swapped car. It's not quite as fast but I love that bottom end torque and I have won almost every race at Le Mans with this car that I have entered. On FM6 you can squeak 4 laps with this engine especially in the wet, and it can be short shifted as well. I would like to convince the Maestro to do a proper tune with the 351 in the Pantera, that would rock.
Cheers, Pete

The gearing is wildly different with the 351. None of the values line up.

Would love a stock engine tune since the odds of getting the swap in roulette are miserable. I've been playing for over a year and no luck.
 
Hi Laurent , you are always the master of tuning and I'll make as son as possibile a good donation :-). Have you a tune for Ferrari VGT or this is in your mind? Thanks again by Massimo

Finally got that car. Somehow I got different PP after tune, but probably because of 1.32, lowered ECU and added some balast. Fantastic driving abilites, on Tokyo 1 pit with FM1, no need to change tyres, easy win. Thank you once again.

Any chance you'll do a setting for this car after engine swap?

OK, here is what I did to use the Maestro's tune for a stock engined Pantera, which is a 351 Windsor Ford, same as a bazillion Ford Crown Victoria police cars.
For the transmission: 1st:2.285, 2nd:1.636, 3rd:1.275, 4th:1.060, 5th:0.897, Final:3.130
In the interest of achieving better fuel consumption, I left the engine Normally Aspirated, however, I modified it by: Upping the bore and stroke using high compression pistons and a race crank, added the high lift cam, and a Balance tune with Port Polishing. That produces 522 HP@6300 RPM and 475 ft.lbs of torque@ 4200RPM with 100% ECU and 100% POWER RESTRICTOR.

I changed the Ballast specs to 9kilos at -50 to achieve the same weight distribution of 41% front and 59% rear as per Praiano's tune for the swapped car. My car weighs in at 2460lbs and a PP value around 676PP which allows Race Mediums as is, or even Race Soft with the addition of a little ballast.

The tune above will give me 190 mph on the first straight of LMS. That yummy torque is very similar to my old F-350 7.3 later diesel which pumped out around 500ft.lbs. (It weighed 8000lbs)

As I am sure you know, Le Mans is probably 75% strategy, so if you can resist upping the ECU to FM1, the car will easily do 3 laps and be in the lead when it is time to pit by staying at FM6. If the radar will allow for Intermediates for rain, you can easily finish on them to take the win, as you may not have to pit again. Race Mediums can be used also in the beginning as they only have to last 3 laps before pitting for rains.

OK, that's my list, anything not mentioned is the way the Maestro tuned for the swapped car.
Cheers, Pete

P.S. Maybe this will inspire Laurent to publish a tune for the stock engined car which will be better??
 
Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo - 700PP - Racing Medium tires - All Track - 1.31
Perfect for SPA / Suzuka / Inter lagos.... tracks where you need a combo grip x speed. Not so good for Le Mans of course.
View attachment 1251044
This is a beautiful tune! The Amuse S2000 was one of my favorite cars in GT5, and I'm so glad they've fixed the physics in GT7 so it can shine again.

The turn-in is perfection, as is the responsiveness. I wish all cars could be so nimble. Perfectly balanced. Just love it.

Only downside is that it guzzles fuel, so in any of the races where fuel is important, you have to run a leaner mixture which results in decreased performance.

For the beautiful handling, try it at the Brands Hatch or Dragon's Trail 700pp events. You can run these on 1 stop but I forget which FM I used - I think FM5.

I tried it on LeMans just for fun and was able to win, but not as easily as with other cars. It can do 3 laps on FM6 if you're careful and short shift a little. Then it can do 2 laps on FM4, so a 2-stop run.
 
Honda NSX GT500 '08 - 800PP - Racing Hard Tires - All Tracks - 1.23


Now 1.23 tune.
Extremely fast to any level , this one is a 800PP but i've test the car same settings till max power with high RPM Turbo. Sharp , Grippy . I love this car.

Maestro,

Before 1.31 this was absolutely one of my favorite cars in the game. I humbly ask that you revisit it at some point to adjust for the new physics... Please, and thanks once again for all the work you do for us.

I have also the swapped version with NSX engine and was struggling to find or modify a drivable tune for it. Now with this tune and probably new physics the car became one of my favourites. Not so fast, but huge grip and excellent feeling. Thank you once again!
P.S. kept it without rear wing by just modifying the downforce a little bit from Mr.P tune
 
Interestingly enough I found that you can remove all ballast from the older 700pp F40 tune and still be under 700pp and the braking stability has improved enough that I didn’t feel like I needed the extra weight either.

New physics add plenty of PP if you move ballast to rear of the car, so if you remove it completely probably PP remains the same or pretty close
 
Hi Laurent , just now I have made a donation to you by Paypal. Good workshop by Massimino Colantoni

Hello Massimino. Good see you again here. Thanks a lot for your help. The Ferrari VGT is impossible to set. All parts are lockeed. Only are ables , tires and ballast.:ouch:
If there is any other car to update , just tell me. Have a good day.

After 1.31 , some cars need rear ballast to take understeer. You can lose some PP but the performance is benefit. The other way is adding front downforce for the same result and same PP lost. The balance is the same but rear ballast have a ++ , it help also a lot for the rear end stability with a better traction out slow turn.
