DISCLAIMER: Full credit goes to DTW.


EXPLANATION: OK, this may seem a little cheesy, but I was going to use DTW's M3 setup as a starting point in tuning my M coupe. But, after a few laps, I realized that the M3 setup translates so well to the M coupe that I couldn't justify making any changes. So, there ya go. Good for 1'36.574 at Infineon (Sports Car).

This had nothing to do with what you think, if you even think at all.

You see now you did make changes! It's not mine verbatim!

Give the man a vote, great setup!

Now if only we could work out that MX-5 1800...

I liked this setup, however I did notice a big difference (for the better) in handling by evening out the spring rates f & r. I set both to 9.3 and noticed much better lap times.

I used this setup, but with:
NA: stage 2
Tires: Racing Hard
Weight Reduction: Stage 2

It's works great. However under braking, it sounds as if the car's hopping (tire squeal sound that skips fast; Controller vibrates). I reduced the Brake Controller back down to 0/0 and now it's gone. Anyone else experience the same thing?

Great setup for the M coupe. I did however make 2 changes.
NA: Stage 3
TC: 0

It was more to my preferences and I manged a laptime of 1'35.364. I should add that I do have a Driving Force Pro wheel though.

This setup is good! to minimize the front tires from getting eaten up, I'd say put more weight on the rear of the car, it actually helps the stearing a little. I beat 30 seconds of everyone in Swhwarzwalk Liga B, did a couple of fixes for myself,

camber 3.7 1.2
stab 4 5
