Wow ! The best GTR based chassis yet. This 700hp car grips and grips in this setup. What a joy to drive.

better handling
Updated 06/19/2002 11:32 PM Post a reply Quote this post View Teken's info
the car handles much better, quicker steering response and i get more speed into the corners. unfortunatly its still very understeery if you push it too hard into a corner(something i have WAY too much experience in =P ) Good braking and throttle control in the turns allow you to get great times with this car.

Heres some more fun i found.
Crank the wheel/stick to either the left or the right and smash the throttle 100%. If your in a wide enough area, you get a nice smokey spin that gets fairly quick. You can even do it in reverse, which is also pretty fast. Its a nice site to see, atleast for me, since i enjoy spinning my tires or doing lots of spins. =)

understeer

Yep, I agree with Teken, unfortunately it's seems to be inherent with all the GTR chassis, push hard INTO the corner and the car understeers way too much. However, if you change your driving style with the GTR and approach the corner at a reasonable speed, stay off the gas until after the apex, then slam the gas, you'll get better times.
As always, I'm continuing on radical setup experimentation to get rid of the entry understeer.
One of which is to put camber 3.0/4.0, inducing oversteer.
Stay tuned for GTR updates. I'm moving onto the Calsonic, Loctite and Penzzoil setups first before revisiting these GTR setups.

Happy tuning.

This car can be won at 2 Hour Trial Mountain, the endurance races. It's one of four cars that can be won.

Fastlane,

check out the comments in my Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII Rally Car Prototype Setup for a guide to setup for Rally. Also check out my Nissan GTR Vspec II R34 setup for a guide on brakes.

A quick guide for tuning road cars, keeping it short, lest this comment be too long.

Spring rates, affect transfer of weight. During braking and acceleration the weight of the car shifts. Softer front springs aids in shifting the weight to the front reducing understeer.

Shocks, see my rally setup guide above. Same effect. Softer shocks on front to remove understeer, stiffer shocks on rear to induce more oversteer.

Toe - see rally guide. 4WD and FF use -1.0 / 0.5 (front/rear) as a start. FR and RR use 0.0 / -0.5.

Stabilizers - help stabilise the car during cornering. Softer allows the car to lean into the turn giving greater grip. But too soft, causes the car to be unresponsive. Too stiff and the car is likely to drift. Use this to fine tune and remove understeer or oversteer. Eg, Car understeers too much = reduce front stabilisers or likewise increase rear stabs. Lower powered (less than 400hp) cars tend to benefit with very high stabilisers.

LSD - I find, others may disagree, that 4WD cars and low hp cars (<400hp) benefit from no or as little as possible LSD. FR cars benefit from LSD heaps. Use this to fine tune wheel spin. Watch for tire smoking while accelerating around corners. If tires smoke up, increase Accel LSD. Keep Decel LSD to around 10 - 15, too much and it induces understeer.

ASM & TCS - see rally guide above. I hate ASM, it induces understeer. Anything above 0, causes the car to behave other than it should and negates the tuning done else where. Without knowing how to tune the car use ASM, but if you know how to tune it following the above guide turn ASM off !

Downforce - Use as little as possible on tracks like Test course. All other tracks, higher front DF reduces understeer. Helps stabilise the car at high speeds. Keep front and rear close to the same figure.

VCD - only available on 4WDs. The figure in GT3 is the % amount of power delivered to the front tires. Keep it low to reduce understeer. Except for rally cars.

That should get you started. This is by no means complete, but should be enough. There is a cause and effect for each setting. Too much or too little of a setting will cause undesired effects. eg, too much front brakes and the tires lock causing understeer. Too little, and the car doesn't stop fast enough, causing the car to continue it's momentum straight ahead.

Is there any way you can take a look back at this car and possibly see if you can eliminate the understeer. Possibly see if there is a way to make it drift nicely. I would really apreciate it.
