I've built the best car ever. Porsche Cayenne with a Carrera GT engine, 640hp, 3,800lbs and somehow is actually competitive. I built it for ***** and giggles to see how many times I could roll it, but its actually within a second per lap of my fastest A class car. I guess the power on the straights helps it out. Anybody wanna race me as I take my 3 kids to soccer practice?

Now painted like a school bus, lol

We got a little dirty racing on the ring last night, my apologies if I got too annoying. (I'm PatNMcrotch) Also on the hillclimb we did, sorry for my friend spinning you, he does that sometimes

It's fine. I had a good time racing and tagging. The ring was fun since we were in almost identical GTR's. Pretty close racing, just how I like it. Your friend was fine, he did have me a little pissed at one point on the mountain track (forget the name) when he spun me like 3 times and let you get over 1,000ft ahead of us. I payed him back a few times though, so we were even. I've been trying to build some cars today. I got a little out of control with only building A class cars and let my other classes slip. Only had 1 good car for each class above A and really none below A. I'm working on S right now, have a few that should be pretty good.

Ive done almost only online races, and only have three cars that I've build, an S class miata, an A class miata, and an r3 class audi r8. I need to do some more building of cars.

I havent have a good race like we had on the ring since I bought the game, kept going back and forth. One thing I dont like about this game is how easy the AI players are on hard setting on tracks like the ring and that hillclimb (I think it's called fuji or something)

Don't even joke like that, get the PS3 and GT5. Its way better in every aspect except maybe paintability, But its not like you buy a racing came to paint.

So GT5 or nothing!!!

I just gotta say..... **** I'M GOOD! Just made some AeroCatch hood latches if anybody wants to make their car look more "race car" like. Best latches I have seen on the store front. Nice with shadow and reflection details. A tiny bit big, but they scale all the way down to life size without any issue with clarity/detail being messed up. I swear, I have more fun making logos and stuff than I do racing. I've probably spent 60% of the time on the game doing this ****, then I give them all away and make no profit to buy cars and parts. Oh well, it passes the time. Seems I am one of the only people on the store front designing logos and whatnot with any kind of eye for detail. At least more so than 95% of them. I don't spend ALL night doing one, but I at least check my proportions and colors where as most don't. I also did a nice Bilstein logo with the yellow circle and shock if anyone wants one for their Bilstein equipped Miata.

S3 Zyklon is the GT if anyone needs it.

How can I make my 900whp R8 turn-in more at low speed? I don't know anything about AWD or mid engine vehciles.

Smaller front sway, bigger rear sway, 6ish rebound, 3ish bound, dunno bout spring-rate, 6.5+ caster, 1.1 front camber, 1.6 rear camber(or around that)

Forza tuning doesnt quite relate 100% to real-life tuning lol. In FM2 with awd cars you would set front sway to 3 and rear sway to 40 and you'd win, no lie.

The way I tune is run at Mugello short circuit, then tinker till its right. My typical AWD setup is reduce camber to 0.4, increase caster to 5.5, front toe out around 0.5, set set the anti roll bars near even, or with the rear slightly higher/stiffer, depending on cars weight of course, set springs to nearly even, but maybe 10% stiffer in the rear, ride height as low as it goes, stiffer rear rebound and bump stiffness with induce a little off throttle over steer so the back end will sling around, but getting on the throttle will pull it back straight no problem. Adjustable diff is the most important part of a good AWD car, set the front diff low on both accel and decel (less than 20% is where I aim for usually) and rear in the 60%-80% range, center setting at about 75%-82% in most cases. Those are just the settings I start off with for a car that I like to drive. Fast and easy to drive for me maybe isn't the same for everyone. From there tweak it as needed. Ignoring real world tuning and reading the tuning tips on each setting to the right of the screen actually helps.

My S class (699) R8 is set up like so, with emphasis on slower entrance speeds and fast and stable turn exit (no oversteer or understeer under power) and has front and rear wing.

613hp, 2,777lb, 46% front

camber 0.6 f/ 0.2 r
toe 0.5 front
caster 5.5
sway 26 f/ 30 r
springs 725 f/850 r
ride height minimum
rebound 8.8 f/9.6 r
bump 6.2 f/ 6.8 r
downforce 82 f/ 188 r
front diff 8% accel and decel
rear diff 70% accel and 80% decel
86% rear

Because we were running fwd junk. No actually I had already taken my sleeping pill, so I barely remember playing at all. I'm usually not too good at Fuji anyway.

Story made short, I go for stiffer in the rear on springs and sway, damping stiffer in the rear makes for more oversteer, then I use the downforce to fine tune how well the front end sticks and how much the rear end is allowed to slide through the turn. Not sure how you would really increase turn in at low speeds, I always just replace turn in with a little bit of oversteer off throttle and the ability to go full throttle out of the turn without pushing like most AWD cars do.

Best steering wheel?

Fanatec 911 Turbo S. Better than the G25, and works on 360, PS3, and PC. Of course that is when it finally arrives at my door.

My problem with wheels is I would have to fabricate a seat and stand of some kind. I have enough junk to keep up with, I don't need a simulator cockpit in my floor. But yeah, the Fanatec is top of the line.
