Awesome, I get it now. Thanks a lot. Nice driving by the way, it's interesting to see that you're not using the handbrake. I would probably abuse it on those hairpins. :]

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.

Great work! Will check them out soon. Get those setups right is essential! I'm especially curious about the Fabia.

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?

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?

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.

Tried your Fiesta R2 setup in Argentina and it's quite remarkable how well the suspension eats up all the bumps. I wasn't able to achieve that on my own so props to you.

Just another happy customer here!

Thank you and please keep it up.

(if there are any Codies snooping around... fire the ingame engineers and put @2Technical in charge)

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

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?

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.

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 ;)

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.

Thanks dude, so glad I could help you out. If I ever find myself in Vietnam I'll take you up on that offer 😉

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.

Good job. I have tested the Evo setup so far in Australia. Looking forward to see your group B, and Rwd setups

@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.
