DiRT Rally Setup Sharing Thread

Recommended Posts

 I've just started using the Renault 5 Turbo is there anyone willing to share a tune with me please ? 
The R5T is kinda broken right now, and understeers a hell of a lot, so it's more about the way you drive it rather than the setup right now. However, to help, softed the diff significantly, and maybe put a bit of rear bias on the brakes - not too much though. 

I thought myself that something felt wrong with the car  i just couldn't figure out what , I will try what you suggested . My first car was a Renault 5 turbo paid £50 for it when i was 15, All it needed was 4 new wheels loved it. I had many of hours of fun thrashing it round my local cow field it was a powerful little car we used to have kind of rally/banger races about 10 of us all driving a range of cars it was great.

My advice, do your own setups to suit your driving style.  From what I have seen of the published PC setup pages, it's often a case of the blind leading the blind.  Codies in-game setup description of adjustment is fairly bang on.  Think what you want the car to do and refine the settings to suit!
I've got plenty of tuning experience from other racing titles. What I don't have however is the time to tune & test, so I'd rather find something "off the shelf" and make tweaks as I go along :)
I agree with you PJ same thing for me. don't have a lot of time. I've done the same thing in Forza 6 find a open tune and tweak to my driving. I know its good to learn how to tune. But for the console side of things. If more people were nice enough to share tunes more people would enjoy this game, and less likely to give up cause the cars are hard to handle.

I tried this on the Peugeot 208 WRX and it felt rather good, been winning the Single Player events with ease.

no its fine you just need to learn to drive it.if you want to go round hairpins you just swing it use the weight like a pendulum.

loose diff can help also flicking it in .i have mine set to the loosest setting.normally on the rwd cars i would have it set to the strongest.

If it's like that in real life then it's a really strange car. Never known a RWD like it.

Has anyone got a good setup for the Polo rallycar? I´m playing on PS4. Thanks!
It's not as simple as that. You're gonna have to tell us the rally you're wanting the setup for, and then maybe somebody can help.

Polo setups for Greece and Wales would be nice.

Nah, definitely easier to upload screenshots. Everybody can see exactly what they are, even if they speak a different language.

Very true, also to make sure to put what car this is for. could there be way where cars are listed, and people could load screenshots to the car set up. But now that I think of it, that might be tricky and could become a mess.
One potential solution would be to have a Setups subforum, with a thread dedicated to each car.

After that all you need to do is specify where you should drive said tune (dirt/gravel etc.).

Agreed with the OP, I would also like to see a setups sub-forum with a thread dedicated to each car, I tried to get something similar going on here a while ago but there didn't seem to be much interest.

http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/39175/rally-drivers-lounge-suggestion#

My passion is the RWD cars particularly the Mk2 Escort, the Steam Workshop setups are great to start and experiment with but it would be nice to be able to discuss and share successful tweaks for a particular car, for example, I need advise on the LSD and rear camber settings for the Escort in Wales, cant seem to get that right !

Any tips for the Escort MKII in Finland would be much appreciated. I'm finding it twitchy as hell, bouncing like a beach ball and meandering badly on default set up.

Muchos appreciation for any tips  :*

Could somebody on Steam download these setups and share screenshots for me please? I'm on Xbox and have no way to access setups :(

Thanks in advance :)

Someone had posted a while back settings to reduce the degree of rotation on a Logitech G29. I can't find that post if my life depended on it. Keeping full rotation is alright for slower cars but the WRC Ford Fiesta needs much faster reaction time and I find I'm sawing the wheel like crazy...without much luck.

Any feedback would be really appreciated.

I'm using 270 deg on a G25, its tight and precise and I find it forces me to concentrate so it improves my stage times. It takes a bit of getting use to but saves all that arm work on corners &  hairpins !  I'm only driving RWD cars at the moment. My wheel settings are in the Steam workshop under Busterbvi, give it a try, should be OK on a G29.

Thank you Busterbvi - I'll drop a line a let you know how it works out.

For anyone interested here's my input to try & help you guys out a bit & my general base settings. Most of the base settings are awful & you'll understeer everywhere so some tweaking is required. I find the suspension settings aren't too bad at all. I sometimes soften the springs a click, or all 4 down a click together but other than that I rarely touch it. I add some positive toe angle on all my cars to help it be more flickable & controllable. 12 deg on the 95 Scooby on tarmac, 37 deg on the Pug 405 PP as an example. This makes a big difference so play with it & add more on gravel than tarmac. Onto the diffs, I don't drive fwd's but I had a go in a mini & it drove much better on loose, adding just 2 clicks from fully loose. The rwd's are better set loose too, on gravel try it fully loose & then add a click to see how it feels. Onto the 4wd cars, I generally start with 2 clicks front & have the center & rear on fully loose. With the more powerful PP cars, I'll have 4 clicks front, 2 center, 2 rear. To find the best balance you need to match it with your driving style. I like to be able to steer the car with the power down through the back wheels so I also set the center diff as far back as possible. I hope that helps anyone who is struggling to figure out where to start.

here a question.

ps4 / T300RS

i see lot's of great info. to try settings per car per sort of underground. Also people tell it's very personal which settings you are using.

But in accordance to the underground on which you are driving, tarmac/gravel (light/heavy/mid)/etc. there must be a good setting per car per underground what technically should be the best way to drive with. due to having lot's of bumps or not, needing more downforce or not, etc.

Is there any site or does anyone know a good overview?

Or am i just wrong in my thinking?

Here is my setup, won the masters with it. Two things to note, the car will be a bit more twitchy with this setup so take some time to get used to it. Secondly it is vital to get your Clio fully upgraded to get the maximum out of it, I did this throughout the career but you can do it in Custom Events too.

So, after much fiddling and whatnot, it turns out that the solution to my problem was a very simple one. When I first got the game, I went in all "purist" and immediately turned off all the assists and whatnot. In doing that, I assumed "soft-lock" was some sort of stability control (thinking differential) and turned it to "off". That's where the problem is. Once I turned it back to "on", it fixed the rotation for car-specific in game settings. In a nutshell, I've kept the rotation for the full 900 degrees on my wheel, but all cars have their own settings based on how the real-life cars are set up. Just as an example, in the WRC Fiesta I was only doing 3:29.000 on a "personal best time" on the Kailajarvi Sprint. After putting soft lock to "on" I've got a current personal best of 3:11.461. That said, my buddy's personal best on that stage is 3:05.897 which is pretty damn fast...

(There's no setup subforum and a search brought up no appropriate threads, so here goes.)



With DiRT Rally being a more serious driving game than most having the right setup can be crucial to getting the fastest stage times. This is a thread where we can share our setups and give tips to others.


If you're a Steam user you can download setups directly into your game via the Workshop.

If you're on Xbox or PlayStation 4 however you'll have to rely on people posting screenshots, as those versions don't have a way of distributing setups in-game.

Some extra links:

I am actually quite surprised that there isn't a function for sharing setups on the console versions. Remember most other racing sims on XB1 had it. Hopefully they'll fix this with an update at some point as it would really help all drivers and not just newcomers.

Hi @DeathMetalRacer, try asking same on this thread too:
http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/40869/community-rally-school-having-questions-bout-driving-techniques-game-features-setups-go-here#latest
Both threads are generally trying to achieve the same thing, mainly for advice on setups, driving techniques etc.
Not sure if any Mods can merge the two threads? I'm finding I'm going to both threads for same info. Be good if someone could do that to keep it neater and in one place
