Recommended Posts

Thank you! I can confirm they work perfectly with the controller and , for my personal style of driving, I can defently see an improvment in car manuvrability

As a noob that has absolutley no idea about tunning, these setups are exactly what I was looking for

Please keep up the good work. Subsribed

This notion of "a setup capable of a top 10 time" is highly misleading and if I were you I would get rid of it. A good setup will never substitute good driving and I'm pretty sure there are players who would be capable of setting a top 10 time with the default setup. It's not alright to get peoples' hopes up in this manner. Other than that I think your channel could be of great service to the community, once you have setups for all of the cars in there.

You are 100% right there are players out there that could get a top 10 time with a default setup, I'm one of them and I know a good few of them to boot. I should point out I never said its a guaranteed top 10 time, just capable of a top 10 time. obviously I cant magic talent into a player but I can make a car more stable to help them enjoy the game more which is the sole purpose of me doing this. Mentioning that my setup are capable of a top 10 time is purely to stand out against the rest as otherwise its just another setup for people to skim over. I'm not trying to mislead as my setups are capable of a top 10 time if the player knows how to get through the stages. If they cant they will really enjoy the next series of videos once I've finished tuning the cars.

Thanks a lot for these tunes 2Technical 👍👍

I'm just a casual Dirt driver, and never bothered to tune any of the cars.
Yesterday I got some time to play with some of your Skoda Fabia and Subaru WRX STI tunes, and must say that they really worked well for me.

I'm not skilled to manage a top 10, but your tunes really added to the enjoyment of my limited time with the game.
With the wife out of the house for the evening I think I'll try some more tonight :classic_tongue:

Hi there, i have no experience in tuning rally cars, and it's frustrating not to know what to tweak on the car when the handling is bad. I use the g920 racing wheel, and this awesome setup site is what i been looking for. Great work done, the cars handles just perfect, frustration is gone, now i can consentrate on driving without expensive damage to the car. The difference between default setup and this is huge, default dident work for me on wheel. So keep on posting, and a big thanks to you making the game so great to play!!

Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your setups and that I hope you continue making videos like this. There is so little information out there for this stuff and it's great to find someone like yourself who's willing to take the time to make these for us to use. I've only recently started tuning for DiRT Rally 2.0 and haven't taken a game serious in that regards since Gran Turismo 5 lol I am using an xbox controller on PC though which hinders me greatly and I am poor so will not likely be able to afford a wheel setup anytime soon. Applying your Peugeot R5 208 T16 setup for Catamarca is hit and miss for me, think the ride height is too much with using a controller but it could be that I am really bad at this event lol Anyways, I was just thrilled to find someone who made setups for my ride (Peugeot R5) that I can take and tinker with. Very little out there in general for setups and much less for that vehicle. Keep it up though, this is amazing stuff! Thanks again bud. Cheers!

EDIT: I'd like to add a request that if you had the time/wanted to, would be nice to go over RX, specifically the Super RX cars. I'm struggling quite a bit the in RX Pro series and still have elites to go 😞 haha so yea, just thought i'd add this. See you!

I find some things in your setups quite interesting. For example, for Argentina in Skoda R5 you make both fast bump and springs firm, while having slow bump set to soft. I always thought a bumpy and rough terrain like this requires an overall soft suspension. Could someone explain it for me?

Can´t understand that there is so much what you can tweak, but not any kind of explanation what it actually do, like we all should be mechanical engineers 🙄
Games like Project Cars 2 offer at least somekind of explanation at screen what each setup affect.

How about Codemasters, could you do manual for game where you can also find instructions how to make setups for cars?!
That could be downloadable .pdf document.

In the old times you got also manual when bought game...


2Technical, thanks a lot for your setup sharings 👌
Tried made those myself partly guessing, trial and error but didn´t managed to get such like yours.
At familiar stage and car I got 10 secods better time when copied your settings.

It's to prevent the suspenion from hitting bump stops on big bumps and jump landings. You can tell when it happens by a loud crash sound and short, sudden loss of control.

Personally I'm looking for good setups for Evo VI. Love the car, but the understeer, especially on corner exit, is killing me. Any ideas? 

Also, those snow and ice patches on Monte. I do fine on smooth asphalt, but I lose lots of time as soon as the ice patches start. No idea how to tackle this setup-wise. Softer anti-roll bars? Open diffs?

Mate using an X360 controller on PC and loving these tunes.

 

Any chance we can get some Group A and Group B setups? Namely Integrale and Peugot?

Will get to the group A cars in 2-3 weeks with any luck. My apologises that I can't get them done any quicker than that as I have work commitments that take priority.

I'm finding locking the diffs up helps coupled with less camber. You'll need maximum traction when your on the ice patches/snow

Soft bump controls how firm the setup is over soft gradual bumps. Fast bump controls how firm the setup is on sharp bumps or landing from jumps. So a firm Fast bump will stop the suspension from compressing to much and hitting the bump stops or bottoming out when I gets extremely bumpy. So if a sharp bump is larger than the cars ride height you'll need a firm fast bump to stop the car bottoming out and causing unnecessary damage. As we all know any car that's hitting the bump stops or hitting the deck becomes skittish and difficult to control. I obviously ran soft fast bumps whilst I was figuring out what works best for me and I was just greeted with horrible crunchie sounds and sloppy cornering response.

Sorry if this question seems stupid, I'm a beginner when it comes to setups, but I don't understand the logic behind this. If locking the diffs forces the wheels to rotate at similar speeds, shouldn't this result in lower traction?

Sorry, when I say "locking the diffs" I mean a high % not fully locking them. You'll struggle to get around the corners if you do. Also because if the slider bar values you can never 100% lock the diffs. I think for most cars its 30-50% maximum lock. For my driving style I prefer the to keep the car as straight as possible because if your going sideways and/or counter steering your not going forward. The high diff setting (mainly the preload) just help keep the straight really. I've linked in some videos, In the first video I'm running high lock settings on the diff and the second video will show you the settings I used to get the time.

Wanted to thank you for the work you're doing, I ended up using the subaru r4 tune as a basis for the evo X as I couldn't find a great deal out there, it works surprisingly well, I was wondering when you plan on finishing off the r4 class? 

Once again thank you for all you're doing for this community.

More diff lock gives you greater traction when accelerating or braking straight as sides of the vehicles wheels will work to pull / push the car forward consistently between them.

If you decrease the wheel lock the wheel speed difference allows the car to turn more easily, but on power pulling / pushing the car forward in a straight line will essentially bleed power to the wheel with the least traction, resulting in wheel spin.

Been using your setups on a few cars now @2Technical, they handle well :classic_happy:

If you've got any coming up for the Audi Quattro I'd be interested. Doesn't need to be location-specific, a general tune for most locations would be handy.

That's great..... Keep it up.
Because like me, tuning doesn't understand anything, your settings are a godsend.
The ones I tried are perfect except for the LANCIA FULVIA in Spain which is absolutely unguidable.
Thanks for everything

What a work !!!!! Many thanks, this car settings help a lot. I will appreciate if you can do the same with 4WD cars like Lancia Delta Integrale or Peugeot 205 T16.................this for me is a nightmare.

Thanks in advance

In the wheel alignment settings:

Front angle set 1 tick OUT (to the left).
Rear angle set 1 tick IN (to the right), or try even going 2 ticks if the road is curvier... 

Front outwards is improving the start of the turn, but the more you increase the angle, the more delay will be between turning of the wheel and effect on the car... kind of small delay.
The inwards angle for the rear wheels is magic... improves mid corner turn.. which greatly influences the control over exit from the corner... for me it helps a lot in decreasing understeer. I'm surprised @2Technical does not use angles anywhere at all... especially on dirt roads, as it is very commonly used in real life setups.

I do use toe angles as and when the car requires it. namely the R5 cars, they did need some toe angles to keep the cars in line. Also in regards to toe the more you use the more you lower the top speed and effect turn response so I always use it as a last resort if I'm struggling to balance the car with springs, roll bars and dampers. After all this is the sim world and things aren't always what they seem.

can you make a video with setup for rwd cars?? i find lot of problem with escort and 131... thanks!!!

will be starting the H3 cars in a couple of weeks. I've also had a bash with the escort, was great on asphalt. Then I took it off road and the thing became an absolute animal. So I've got to spend some time understanding what effect what with the RWD cars as I very rarely use them.

Your settings are awesome! Without them I would have given up on the game!

For now I just play the game with the cars you've done, can't wait for the next ones.

Thank you so much for sharing, you help noobs like me enjoying the game!

If you come to Vietnam the first bottle is one me ;)

Drove some R5's in Poland using those setups, and it's amazing. The cars are so predictable, stable and fast now. I wonder, how do you get so good with setups?

thanks dude, your comment is appreciated. how did I get so good at setups you ask? well, I started playing racing games back in 97 with Gran turismo, picked up Colin mcrae rally in 98 on release, Didn't really start trying to understand the tuning aspect until Forza 2 in 07 and pretty much learnt all I know on the forza franchise and just adapted it to project cars, F1 and Dirt and it seems to be paying off. So literally just years of experience and taking the time to understand what makes the car do what.

I find a lot of GTR technicals setups pretry bang on for me, they reward aggressive driving, but maybe because Im using a game pad, Ive found some setups Ive had to tweak just a touch to get rid of some mid corner push; I usually just give the car a little toe out on the front, maybe a touch more camber and lighten up the front roll bar just to get more turn in and grip on the front.

@2Technical thanks a lot for those setups, you don't even know how helpful they are!

Just got promoted to Masters in my Peugeot 208, your setups make aggressive and fast rallying such more controllable and give a chance to recover from mistakes instead of having to face frustration from a full-scale crash.

Your work is deeply appreciated, sir.

You have probably planned on doing this but I am looking forward to seeing some setups for Sweden preferably for my favorite Peugeot 208 T16 hehe Just me though xD Anyways, hope you are doing good. This thread is a godsend truly and we as the community are really fortunate to have you doing these vids for us. While I haven't been able to use your setups fully (probably because I race with a pad) you gave me the ground work to build my own setups with being able to see and understand the changes you make to the car with your setups. Keep up the good works. Can't wait to see what you drop next. Like I said, my vote is some Sweden with R5's or maybe the 2000 cc's (Skoda!?). lol Cheers man!

hi, yes I have planned in the DLC locations for the car I done prior to them. Will be picking them up after Germany drops starting with the 2000cc and R5 cars. Yeah, my setups are obviously setup for my driving style using a wheel. So using a pad and having a different driving style will most likely incur some modification but im glad they have still help even if it is just a starting platform.
