I was hoping folks could give me some advice on this car’s tuning. This is my first tune and the issues I found with the tune include: (1) understeer - difficulty turning, esp during braking, car keeps moving forward, and, (2) braking distance - taking to long/distance.
I did check out several YouTube videos, yet, most focus on RWD and higher class (many upgrades).
Here are the settings (this is where I landed after many tweaks):
Tires = Front & Rear set at 28.0 psi
Gearing = Default (can not be tuned)
Alignment = Default
Anti-Roll Bars = Front (21.02), Rear (18.01)
Springs = Default
Damping = Default
Aero = Front (75), Rear (137)
Braking Force = Balance (53%), Pressure (150%)
Differential = Acceleration (30%), Deceleration (0%)
As far as upgrades, the car is maxed out (D400) and want to keep in the D class.
Your ideas are welcome and certainly would be appreciated. Thanks!
Easy fix would be to lower the car a little at the front to lower the center of gravity, remove some downforce from the rear, more at the front to help understeer during high speed turn.
I see you have brake poressure a 150 %, you must be playing with ABS ? If not, lower that some. It doesnt help braking distance, it will simply make the tire lock easier.
So basically: (1) reduce downforce from rear, (2) increase downforce at front, and, (3) I am assuming by downing #1-2 it will lower the car at the front [or something else to lower car at front?]!
** Changing Aero to F (85) and R (125).
My brake pressure is set to 150% since I was not able to fix my braking problem (or so I thought), and did use ABS. However, would prefer not using ABS, thus, I will lower such pressure to about 100%.
I’ll check these changes out. Again, thanks so much! As a newbie, this will certainly help me with my learning curve.
