GT5 car setup

33 Replies 16,489 Views Created 24-04-2008

I'm in class A and had to buy a car for that American Muscle car race, really hate those cars, lol. I brought the Ford GT thing but it's a right pain to drive, I'm skidding off the track going down straights, lol.

 

Anyone got any tips how to set this car up in the driver options. I have tried taking traction off and on full but I'm getting nowhere fast. Thanks for any help.

The Ford GT has a high tendancy to spin due to the wheels skidding with full acceleration applied. All you need to do is enabled ASM and set Traction Control to 2 or 3 if you have sensitive fingers, or set it to 5 or 6 if you press the buttons like your life depended on it.

Thanks for replies both of you. I did manage to finish second although I don't know how, it was like bumper cars at times. This is the first race where I haven't enjoyed it.

 

I will give it another go though and try both your suggestions, I thought I had got the wrong car as well but I will try your suggestions. Thanks again.

 

 

PS. When do you get to actually tune youe cars? Is it straight forward?

Use a Corvette, switch everything off and go reeeaally easy on the gas. The trick here is to earn respect for the accelerator and not to use it as an 'off-on' switch. Use the accelerator sparingly and only put the boot in when the road is straight and the car isn't unbalanced. Otherwise you'll need to feed the power in very gradually and be prepared to lift very quickly and ease up on the steering if you detect a spin coming on.

 

I've got a mate who can't wrap his head around the Corvette (I can't either) and is having a very hard time adjusting to the monster torque and power. It took him around 12 hours of trying before he finally got it, but when he did, he couldn't wipe the smile off his face.

 

The US muscle cars are a pain sometimes, but when they're hooked up in a race, the speed and the power is just ORSOM!

 

I still get sweaty palms when driving one!

I bought the Ford GT quite early on because I examined all the stats in the dealerships and it looked like the best bang for the buck. At first I hated it but after a while I really got to enjoy it and it's still one of my favorite cars for offline. It's very twitchy to handle, especially on technical courses like Fuji and Suzuka, but because of that it's all the more satisfying when you do manage to get it right. I also couldn't resist getting the GT Test Car just to try it out but once you've cleared the A races and can tune you can get pretty much the same performance out of the regular GT.

To be serious, the answer to driving any car quickly is to leave the ASM off. It's such a hindrance, it will cost you 10 seconds a lap and if you want to win some serious races, you gotta leave it off. If you need to drive with ASM on, you're being too brutal with the steering and too heavy on the gas.
The answer to 'brake in a straight line or you'll lose the back end' is simple. Less rear brake pressure, and maybe a set of harder tyres at the front of the car. You need entry understeer in a car like this and to do so, you must compensate for the weight and grip at the rear. Anyone who goes for a fully balanced setup (same tyres front/rear, same ride height front/rear same spring rates, damper levels, etc) will have difficulty with the GT.
StiG, you're a bit of an MR maestro, do you set up your beloved Clio with an even balance all-round?

Well Aero I prefer FR over anything else. I ride my gears more than I do my brakes and use downshift wheelspin to break grip and corner with so FR is the ideal for that style but if I can get an MR stable enough, your right its even easier(Why I love the Clio so much, because its so bloody

 manageable)

 

I always start with the same base setup thats generally suits my driving style and I would consider sort of "standard" race setup anyway. I usually leave the Rear Toe neutral and make my adjusments in Camber and Toe in the rear to "finalize" the way the car lets the rear go. but the front end I usually set up the same with most cars unless they need something special.

Here is what I used (I just re-did it to be sure).  Mind you I had the option to quick tune but it could be done with an un-tuned Z06 as well

 

Corvette Z06

 

Power 571HP - (+12%)

Weight 1207kg- (85%)

Ride height (-30 / -29 )

Springs (6 / 6)

Damper (6 / 6)

Toe (-.08 / +..08)

Camber (2.7 / 1.3)

Brakes (6 / 8 )

Turning - 35

Traction - 1

ABS - 1

Gears:

75

113

155

188

239

363

final ratio 4.424

 

The total time for this event was 6:14.4 I wet with the first lineup.  At the finish all 5 top finishers were either FordGT or Z06  (minus me at #1). You may have to play with the lineup (if one particular car seems superpowered).

 

BTW this was for the NTSC version 5/3/08 (Spec II)

 

And for my general tunning philosophy see this thread

I love the MR's but my Elise is seriously unbalanced, the rear lets go so easy it's not even funny.

It has full rear and front downforce, any other tips?

Hello. I am an invalid.
Is there anywhere I can go to learn what all the settings do, so I may understand the implications of fiddling with them?

Hi H0P5,
Try this as a starting point: KWIXX tuning guide  It relates to GT4, but the theory is obviously still relevant. 
Feel free to add me on PSN.
