Jaguar D-Type '54 - 500 PP - Sport Hard Tires - Nordschleife - 1.48

Wide car - Rims 18" - Width Wide - Offset Wide

You can put a lot of power on this car but without downforce and skynny tires , it turn this little old bolid undrivable.
The best option i've found for it was 500PP , the car is very performant laping under 8 minutes cruising.
Just don't overdrive it enter any kind of turn , it stay stable but you'll fell a lost of grip at the front end at the wheel. Out corner you can floor the pedal , no problems. It can be one of the best weapon at 500PP on any track racing online lobbies.
You don't need all this engine tuning parts. It was just for test.

Toyota S-FR '15 - 500 PP - Sport Hard Tires - Nordschleife - 1.48

Rims 16" - Width Wide - Offset Wide

Front A - Side St - Wing Custom

Another sub 8 minutes Nordschleife car. Superior grip , decent top speed. Perfect for online racing. Very easy to lead , no surprise at all. I've let the stock LSD to gains +3PP and stay with some more power.

Honda NSX GT500 '00 - BOP - Racing Medium tires - All track - 1.48

I'm doing a new BOP power and weight setting for my GR3 cars. A lot of people are racing online using this base, with stock or custom gearbox.
Superior grip , very safe , max springs & mini dampers are the settings that i prefer for this car. Anyway they don't do a big performance difference , just a sensation and i feel good this way.
LSD is very important and change a lot the behavior. You can low braking sensivity a few if you're a top driver. I prefer be regular and comfortable. Gearbox is ok for most grip/speed track , like SPA or Suzuka....

Are you using it at this BOP power and weight ? I've tested it on severals criticals points as "Eau rouge" on SPA. It never show this behavior. It can happen when the car is flooring during turning down the depression , or when the grip pass over the rear tires.
I'll test it on Le Mans to check.
 
It means instant overdrive when changing direction.

So after testing i can see this lost of rear grip entering fast S turns like "indianopolis corner" and "Dunlop chicane" , but only if you overdrive the car using late braking points.
On this car , to get an optimum performance and grip ,allowing weight transfers around the 4 corners of the car. This way , the weight shift on any tires during this weight transfer.
If your driving technique is soft , with progressive inputs , you can let the car more "loose" to gain the max grip at end of the extension/compression transition. This is the way i prefer to drive.
If you're more brutal , with late braking and hard wheel inputs , you have to set the car to contain those weight transfer.
To tight the car to prevent those sudden moves , you can use this setting.

Hi Laurent, I've been away as I've been focused on pursuing my PB in the Nordschleife TT the past couple weeks with my free time :)

Now I want to try out this new NSX on the Weekly Special Event 10-lap race at Fuji.

Looking at your BOP tune, I was thinking to just slap on a Turbo to give it some more PP and leave ECU at full and no ballast. Do you think this would require any changes to LSD or suspension to be balanced with the extra power? (I was thinking to also lower the final gear on the trans)

Any advice you have would be appreciated, thx!

I run the updated tune with maxed PP, it's glued to the ground, I spent a good amount of time yesterday driving it because it's so good, and better than the original Praiano had made (he fixed some issues in the new one).

New weekly Fuji race allow partial settings, brake balance only.
I have 2 options for suspensions above. A lose or tight safe one.

Myself i prefer the original. The second option is safer for sure and can be driven harder.
Hi Praiano, do you have a tune with the swap engine for this car?
No i don't. When maxed it can be a superior 550PP car. I'll do a Nordschleife setting soon.
maestro, could you make a specific setup for Fuji for the Nissan gtr gt500 with the bop?
I can check it.
 
Nissan Sileighty '98 - 700PP - Racing Hard Tires - SWAP - All Track - 1.48

SWAP ENGINE: K24A-Civic

Wide car
Rims size 16"
Width wide - Offset Wide
Front A - Side A - Rear A - Wing custom

Just another good 700PP car , performance is ok but not superior. Driving behaviors are just mediums..... I prefer the original engine at 550PP where the chassis fit better to power and grip level.

Hi Praiano, do you have a set-up for the Aston Martin VGT?
I think it's one of the best 600pp and 700pp cars.Excellent grip, good top speed, low fuel and tire consumption.It's already easy to win with this car, but I would like to do better.

No open settings for this car. Only ECU , Power restrictor , brake balance... and tires.

The only way i've found to turn it faster at 600PP Tokyo is to use rear ballast . Remember to shift at 6500rpm , you can't use auto transmission on this car.

For the 700PP just put 79kg ballast position 50. Using Racing Hard tires.
