    Notes
    This setup had taken sometime to do since I disappeared from the scene. As usual knowing your driving style, racing line, and your braking points will determine how this car will handle for you.

    Info on the car
    Updated 07/04/2012 2:00 AM Post a reply Quote this post View DjWess's info
    HowYOU drive the car determines how the CAR HANDLES FOR YOU. What made me said this is how people would use a setup such as this as a base tune for them without trying the car while it is stock. Just experiment with the car till you find a balance that works and then accept the critique from others online about your setup in order to make it better. With that said let us break down the setup of this car.

    The first thing I had people (my friends from college) ask me was why did you max out the horsepower of the car but de-tuned it to 602 HP @ 84.6 percent? I did this because I was entering online lobbies that were hosting Super GT500 events set at 610hp and 631pp. So yes this is an online racing tune. It is true the more hp the better but keep in mind that your transmission must agree with that power as well on various tracks. So in my mind a 602 hp car with a top speed set at 183 seemed balance for tracks such as Nurburgring GP, Twin Ring Road Course, and other medium tracks while 211 seem fitting for tracks like Autodromo, Daytona, and Spa just to name a few. The key shifting points are in-between the revs of 6000-7500rpm.

    Another question people were asking me was why didn't you mess with the LSD? Tuning LSD without know what it does can be very risky since tuning it could have a chance of making the car better or have the horrible effect of destroying the overall balance of the car despite how well you tune your suspension. In my case, I felt that messing with the LSD wasn't necessary since it felt balance before and after the tune. So it wasn't worth gambling the balance of this car on the LSD. You will also notice that the spring rates are stiffer in the front. Keep this in mind a slightly under-steering car is 9/10 times faster than an over-steering car. This car was tuned to have some under-steer at speed but will face oversteer if you try to floor it around the apex of a tight turn (some people think that such a car exist when in reality it doesn't). The overall setup of the suspension is for the car to be a little on the under-steering side, it has the over-steer characteristic down. As far as wheel alignment, it was tuned to have maximum tire life without giving up the overall handling of the car. Running a 10 lap online race on Motegi Road Course, soft tires ran for 7 out of the 10 laps of the race scoring a 1st place victory against 5 others.

    So as a last bit of information, it really comes down to preference to this car. We as tuners should know there is no perfect setup and we normally tune it to our liking which may or may not help others. As usual, try out the car and this setup 1st and then tune the car to your liking. Feedback (good or bad) is always welcomed but please do not turn this into a 'mine is better than yours' competition. Have fun.
    Have fun while you race others. If you don't why are you racing in the first place?

    there is no 183 top speed, there IS a 193, explain the trans please

    Edit:
    I figured it out, ok for future people...
    move the Final Gear to 3.462
    then move the Top Speed to 180
    all the Gears are then set automatically

    Re-Edit:
    As I understand the LSD, the lower the numbers the more one wheel will spin the higher the numbers the more locked and both wheels spin the same >60 meaning so much locked it's like having a rear axle welded into one piece (not good for turns, great for drag). Having it set to <5 it's like 1 wheel drive which is great for turns but not on the exit. Under braking, if it's set too low the car wont get fishtail happy as easy as it will if set high. Again WITH your explanation all this is HP power (mostly torque) oriented and needs to reflect that. This is literally the last step to getting the power to the ground (not including the tires).

    That's true. How do you think we should go about tuning the LSD?

    Not bad. Cut my time by 2 seconds at Suzuka with a slightly modified version of this setup.

    Consider lowering the car a little. Although you have lowered it some, it's still sitting rather high, which causes more lateral movement when cornering than needed.

    Also, consider playing with toe-in. I see you have zero toe front and rear. Adding some negative toe really improved cornering (for me).

    Thanks for the feedback as well, I'll jump on this tonight with the those thoughts in mind Smile
