    Notes
    This is a work in progress.

    I have the the assists on (I know for most of you that is sacrilege). Please help me to get this setup to handle the way it currently does but without the assists. I have a custom gearing but I left it on my other Formula GT and will get it later, but I am using this setup on the FGT Cup races and am (with my driving) 1+ second faster than the other cars.

    If you have skid recovery force on, cut TCS to 3, and get rid of active steering. You should be ok to run with that.
    I found without skid recovery, parts of my car would go on holiday or try new jobs, like the TCS would stop doing anything and the rear wheels would try to steer. With SRF you can get away with at least some human imperfections but it does have limits which is good.
    From what you have I'd say lowering the car is better as it gives more ground effects downforce, but if you do soften the suspension a bit, so you can use curbs without being tossed off the road.
    more ideas to follow.
    Can you explain why you have the LSD set up for oversteer, while you have downforce set up for understeer? Is that so you get better turn in for low speed but the 2 settings balence out at high speed? What other issues do you have with the car, I'm happy to help with this car.
    Oh, also was it used or new when you did chassis reinforcement?
    Also is it not turning in under brakes? As dialing up ABS merley adjusts how much you want the car to turn under brakes without locking or spinning.

    100% all gold in GT4, GT5 and GT6. At last.

    I lightened up the Recovery force to light, fixed a lot, but it still suffers some understeer... I did that because with my driving style if I get to a turn the back end spins out uncontrollably so I figured less DF in the front would if anything make the front slip before the back lets loose. PD really changed the characteristics of the Formula GT, in GT4 there was an awesome setup that I voted for but it's too loose in GT5. Maybe more DF in the front is better but it seems to suit me good... The speed was set to 255 cause on the longest straits in the Formula GT races anything else maxed the limiter... I got to Autodromo before my game screwed up but thankfully I can exit and save it...

    First of all, I'll agree with StigTC to keep SRF on and get rid of Active Steering. TCS should be fine set to 3, and drop ABS to 4. Although I tried ABS at 3, I wasn't comfortable with it. Steering Sensitivity at 4 is fine. The settings I suggest are as follows:

    Downforce: F: 65 R: 90

    Drivetrain/LSD Initial: 8 Accelleration: 20 Braking: 13

    Suspension:
    Ride Height F: -4 R: -4
    Spring Rate F: 17.9 R: 18.0
    Dampers Ext F: 9 R: 9
    Dampers Comp F: 8 R:8
    Toe Angle F: 0:00 R: 0.25

    Brake Balance: F: 1 R: 2

    I have tried to equal out the effects of downforce understeer/LSD oversteer so that they are more nuetral. The effects of this is slightly tighter steering, but moreover, better stability when exiting corners. Link that to the changes to the suspension which gives better ground effect downforce (as pointed out by StigTC), the car became a little more tame. The brake balance is set to slightly oversteer. As this only applies when braking round corners, it's far more controlable.

    Unfortunately I have not been able to eliminate slide completely, although it's a lot better than it was. Usually I can accellerate out of it. Be aware, however, that on tight cormers it would be better to ease round and accellerate once the car is stable with the above changes.

    My initial run with your setup without the changes above, gave me a lap time of 1:15.311 after I got used to the handling. With the changes that I'm suggesting, my best lap time is 1:12.969. I was also consistantly under 1:13.720.

    If you wish to adjust the suspension for higher curbs (like on the Nurburgring course), I suggest:

    Ride Height: F: 5 R: 5
    Spring Rate: F: 16.7 R:16.8
    Dampers Ext: F: 8 R: 8
    Sampers Comp: F: 7 R: 7

    This still gave me times of 1:14.5 consistantly or less.

    Good luck with this. Hope this helps.
