Welcome to the Tuning Garage.
Whether you wish to share a tune, request a tune, or simply ask some questions, this thread will be your one stop shop.
And without any further ado, I'll start things off with one of mine.
I decided to have a go at the current Sport Mode Gr.4 race.
I noticed everyone was in a GT-R or Scirocco, so of course I went for something different.
My basic plan of attack was to get a few cars and run them stock around the track.
Which ever car seemed to handle okay and was quick time-wise compared to the others came out on top.
And for me the winner was the Audi TT.
So I spent a reasonable amount of time in Sport Mode Qualifying mode, trying to adjust the car and better my lap times.
Once I was happy that I had a reasonably quick car, I went racing.
I continued to adjust the tune during the periods between races, until I ended up with what I think is quite a fast car.
I have run a 1:41.9 in Qualifying, so that has given me plenty of poles or high grid positions.
Apparently it's good for a 1:41.6 should I hook up all the sectors in one lap.
And for a, let's say, perhaps better than your average Joe driver, but certainly no "alien", that's a pretty good result.
So that tells me it must be a reasonable tune.
Bear in mind this car is front wheel drive.
And it's a shocker for hooking up and accelerating in low gears.
Also bear in mind that this tune was done by me using a wheel.
How it translates to a controller is unknown.
Anyway, enough waffling.
Here's my Audi TT Gr.4 tune for Kyoto.
*(For the gears, simply do it in the order down the page - eg set Max. Speed, then each gear, then Final)
Can you please send me the S-FR settings just in case the room settings mean I can’t use the DS3@Tassie_tiger
I was pretty lazy with it.
But anyway, here's the numbers.
I must have tried 5 or 6 cars I thought were worth checking.
But this car is so light, and pretty slow, a small tweak here or there isn't going to change the lap time much.
It's fine stock standard, just with gearbox max. speed changed
Driving technique will have a bigger influence on lap times than a change of a few numbers.
It was 0.5 seconds slower than the DS3, but super safe and almost full throttle the whole lap except for the obvious couple of corners.
If it's strictly N100, anyone in the MX5 is in a lot of trouble.
The S-FR is the much better car.@fred101104
What times we’re you getting? I’ve got the MX5 and achieved 58.7@Tassie_tiger
Not much quicker, but I only did about 3 laps.
58.2 in the S-FR.
57.7 in the DS3.
TBH it didn't look like the MX5 would get near that so I moved on pretty quick.
It was also a lot looser than the S-FR and would require better tuning than the numbers I quickly tested it with.
But 58.7 makes it more competitive than I thought.
Went back to the lobby for a quick second look.
For my money the better car is still the S-FR.
But there's nothing wrong with 58.7, so whichever you prefer.
I'm new here and also looking for a fast setup for the Toyota sfr. No particular reason 😜@Tassie_tiger
I think the appropriate answer in this case is .... nope.
But as you know I'm always happy to try and help, or at least try to guide people in the right direction, should they turn up to a tuning session.
And saying that, I'm about to post a few basic tips for the upcoming race.
Just to help some who don't get as much time to practice as others do.
The Chevy Camaro is a slippery beast on Sport tires. I got it to handle "reasonably" on Racing Soft tires, but nobody seems to have published a good tune for it yet.
Any ideas on how to control it better on Sports?
Apparently, the M3 has similar problems.
I gave this a bit of a go earlier and "Slippery beast" is an understatement.
To be honest, it's not my cup of tea.
I prefer to attack a track as opposed to tip-toeing around it.
But anyway, I gave it a shot.
I bought a new Camaro, decided to try Suzuka, fitted the adjustable bits, took a guess and changed the gearbox max. speed to 260kph(162mph), and went for it.
Multiple attempts running it standard and I couldn't even complete a lap.
Anyway, here's what I've ended up with so far.
It still requires a lot of care on Sports Hards.
I'm not sure I would want to try it with a controller.
More confident on Sports Soft, but still some care needed in a few spots around the track.
And I felt I could attack the track on Racing Hards.
Tuned using a wheel, with ABS on default, TC off, and all other assists off.
I tried the standard settings again at the end of my testing.
And familiarisation with the car now meant I was more competent with it than in the beginning.
So I'm not sure what gains I have actually made, if any.
"Work in progress" could be a suitable term here.
Cool, I’ll give that a go. Thanks for your help once again 🎼’r@Tassie_tiger
Any good tunes for the Toyota S-FR Racing Concept around Dragon Trail?
No-one else seems to be interested in the challenge.
So give me a few days and I'll see if I can come up with something.
Some extra details of what you want would be handy.
But I'll just give it a go at tuning it with standard tyres around a track of my choice.@shafin928
im looking for a tune for the 911 gr3 and the beatle that will do a 153 around bathurst i pull 156 atm but having probs with trans
My apologies for the late reply, but physics updates and my own challenges with tuning a car for the OPC (Official Playstation Community) events have kept me busy.
I have no idea if it's a general thing or if you needed it in a hurry for an event.
And tuning for a specific time (gain) isn't really going to work.
But I can have a go at tuning a specific car for a specific track.
So I'll give that a go and post here in the next few days.
The Shelby Cobra is notorious for being difficult to handle, but here is a basic tune, mainly by KART86, with Sport Soft tires and no Traction Control.
here can you find all about GT Sports Tunes.
Please feel free to share your tunes here and contribute to the community.
It would be appreciated by all I'm sure.
