Figured it'd be better to centralize all this into one thread rather than spewing it about. DelZaster - Thanks for the tune. I ran 10 laps at Laguna with it this morning and my best time was a 1:37. My best time with the tune I sent you was 1:35. What that proves to me is you're a far superior driver than I am....(but we already knew that haha). I think one of the biggest issues I'm facing is I've spent most of my time in this game driving the M5 the way I had it setup which is extremely tight. So when I get into a faster/looser tune, I'm all over the place. I just need more time to develop my skills. Also, the disconnect I'm having is I'm not at a point yet where I understand what the car is doing on the track compared to what tune setting is causing that. I've spent time reading the tuning guides on the Forza and Realistic Racing websites. I have an understanding from a technical standpoint of what certain settings control, but I don't understand the connections or how to "feel" them in my car on the track yet. Do any of you guys know of a guide that discusses this in more detail? One of the biggest things is the suspension settings. I notice they are much softer in this tune than mine and I wondered why you did that? What do you feel when driving that indicates to you the suspension is too stiff? Also, the gearing was quite a bit different. What drove the changes there? Hellisan - I played with the 3rd tune you sent me, the one where downforce was maxed out, and I didn't feel like I could get that thing to turn. I took a couple laps with it and when I'd enter a turn the thing just kept pushing. What would cause that?......besides my terrible driving haha.
