This is 2Technical's reply when asked this on his YouTube page.

"A lower final drive aims towards better acceleration. Where as a higher final drive aims towards top speed. Seen as rally cars very rarely achieve top speed I focus my setups heavily towards acceleration only increasing the final drive as and when I start redlining in top gear."

I used to be lazy and just increase the final drive all the time but since using 2Technical's gearing I can really feel the engine pulling now. There's so much more torque.

Hope that helps

Thank you EvilCee. Recently I’ve been moving the final drive very close to the minimum and could really see the difference in acceleration. I’m not even sure why it’s in the middle by default. But what I really wanted to know is what’s behind 2Tech’s adjustments from gear 1 to 5 (or even 6). From his video, although he almost always set the final drive to minimum, he adjusts the other gears to fit the locale. I was wondering if he deploys some kind of math behind his gear-level adjustments.

Thank you! I like to find tunes that others have done than tweak them to work with the way I drive (pull a trigger on the controller, my reaction time, my body movements that I don't know I'm doing, etc.)  I have A.D.D. so after a while, specially on those 5-10+ mins tracks, it gets difficult and I have the repair bills to prove it haha.

 

Also, to anyone who gets upset with these tunes, when you are driving with them, the OP isn't driving. You are. A lot of things need to be taken into consideration. Such as, reaction times, nervous movements (when your drifting around a corner and your rear tire taps a rock. It's how you react to that.) and so much more. Specially, how is the controller setup? Get that setup before you criticize others tunes.

Hello,

Have you ever tried to tune up Opel Adam? I have made few working setups, but it would be nice to see yours

Yeah, in reality I'm pretty sure the DR2 explanation is the correct one. Negative toe (toe out- wheels pointing away from each other) improves cornering and responsiveness, positive (toe in- wheels pointing to each other) improves straight line stability.

 

My explanation would be

Toe-out angle on the front accelerates the reaction, but creates a counter-steering effect as soon as the weight acts on the outer wheel of the curve. Perhaps interesting with rear-wheel drive.

Toe-in on the front reduces the reaction, but creates a steering effect as soon as the weight acts on the outside wheel. Perhaps interesting for front-wheel drive vehicles.

During high-speed stages and on asphalt, both variants can cause inaccurate steering.

2Technical, thank you so much for those setups! I have recently bought the game and realized that there was no Steam Workshop for DR2 (how silly!). Your tuning videos are the best in this situation.

I am using Xbox One Controller and so far your tuning is FANTASTIC and I am having lots of fun with it! :classic_smile: Again, thank you!

Please, forgive me if it was already asked but are you planning to add setups for other seasonal locations like Greece, Finland and the future ones?

I dont get it. Wouldn't it be easier for everybody to have a place where you can download/upload the setups ?

future ones? nobody outside Codemasters knows if there are future ones haha

I'd just like to add that @2Technical's setups are amazing.   In particular I'm a huge fan of the gear ratios.  If I would take one thing from every GTRTechnical setup, it's the gearbox settings.

I do get the impression that the setups are optimized for clean stages (no degradation) and fresh soft tyres, so I'd encourage people to use GTRTechnical setups as a starting point and play around with the springs/dampers/differentials as needed for the kind of rally you're doing.  They may not be the best for worn surfaces on worn tyres, but they're still by far better than no setup, and the gearbox settings are still extremely well optimized regardless of conditions.

Hey I just wanted to give u a big thumbs up for the tunes, they have really put the fun back into dirt for me. Mainly doing fwd at the moment and am on top page for pretty much every track I've done and with a fair few 1st places along the way. I occasionally may make minor tweaks to the diff and gears and in Argentina I found taking 1 click off the rear toe steadies things up if I'm getting too much rotation, is all I ever need to do, probably the difference between controller and wheel.

Nail on the head there @ApexAzimuth. Due to the fact you cant dive back and forth to the service park to adjust the setup once you start a custom championship, all my setups are created in time trial with fresh soft tyres and no stage deg. So unless your driving style is the same as mine and your running in time trial you will have to adjust the setups i share to optimise is for yourself. They are only meant to be referenced as a guide, basically saying to get the best out of the car you need to be some where around here. The good thing is about the setups is you know immediately that if your running with stage deg/worn tyres/harder compound or in the wet you know that the dampers/springs/ rollbars will need to be softer and the diffs looser, and with slightly less camber. So they are very much a good starting point for your own setups. After all there is no such thing as one setup to rule them all.

i assume devs have changed some of the figures since your early setups ?  noticed things like the RS200 you lower it by -30 but now it can only go -10

I'm a relative noob when it comes to setups but have been using your tuning recently and like them a lot! However, could you (or somebody else) go into a little bit more detail about the changes one should make to tune for stage degradation, harder compounds and wet surfaces?

are you sure you're looking at the same surface? the possible values are different for

a) tarmac

b) dirt/gravel

c) snow (sweden)

d) monte carlo

One quick question, I try sometimes your setups and I find some of them very helpful. I did have a lot of trouble with Lancia Fulvia in Scotland heavy rain, and just by lowering camber, and loosening the diff 3 clicks (as you have written in one your videos...) the car behaviour was strange and I was losing a lot of time

But the question is, I have already seen your video of H1 comparison class... but "new" locations like Finland make me wonder

Is the Mini overall a faster car than a Lancia Fulvia as today? I tried them in a lot of wet stages in time trial (specially Scotland where I struggle a lot) and I am slightly faster with the Lancia, maybe because of having 500 kms with it... And in dry I am faster by a huge margin with the lancia Finland for example (with my actual driving)..  I am looking for the easiest car to progress in elite career mode and so far class H1 was good for me (in pro, club)

A lot of people and usually the ranking tells otherwise... that the Mini has a slight advantage, excluding maybe Finland, Poland, Australia (Spain cause of long straights ?)

Ive said it before but its utterly stupid that Steam Workshop wasnt included with this title. 

If it werent for GTR Technicals setups, I'd be really annoyed. I dont have time to sit there and tune so many setups for so many cars on so many tracks; his setups are almosy always perfect for me, at least in 90% of cases, otherwise some racks I do soften the setup a touch for my driving style (or maybr because I use a gamepad and not a wheel). Without these setups I dare say I'd havr given up on this game a long time ago. 

 

Why Dirt Rally 2.0 does not have Workshop while the first one and all F1 titles have it I dont know. 

 

If they do another Dirt Rally title I will be thinking twice if Workshop (and this whole drip feedong of content from previous iterations) rears its head again.

Just recently purchased a thrustmaster T150 wheel for use with my PS4, does anyone have a set up for the wheel for dirt rally 2.0?

I don't really know much about the ps4 and what you can and can not do, but for PC.

Go to - \Steam\steamapps\common\DiRT Rally 2.0\input\devices

Open in notepad.


Find -

<device id="{B677044F-0000-0000-0000-504944564944}" name="tm_t150" priority="100" type="wheel"  />

Change to -

<device id="{B677044F-0000-0000-0000-504944564944}" name="tm_t150" priority="100" type="wheel" ffb_force="1.0" />

In-game, in the R5's I use something between 105 and 110 steering torque. 70 tyre friction and 130 suspensions. Turn self-centring off, also turn off wheel friction, set collision 20.

In-TM control panel, set overall force to 75%, all the rest to 100%, let the game do centring. I set the wheel to 540, and in-game turn off soft lock.

Thanks a lot for all the effort you've put into this, 2Technical. Just recently got the game for free from PS Store so I haven't tried that many cars, let alone setups, yet. The few setups I've seen from your YT channel seemed very much alike, even though the cars were completely different. I assume that's a trend in the game - certain things are a given, such as a very stiff suspension?

I've always been inclined to do my own setups or just drive with the default ones. Your gear-ratios, however, helped me a lot and saved me so much time I feel like I owe you something.

Reading through the thread I saw some discussion about how much faster a good setup makes a driver. Well, personally I was trying to set a Group B WR to Kotajärvi and got to 4th, 4 seconds away from the top - with the default setup. Then I practically copied 2Technical's Peugeot 205 Evo setup to my Lancia Delta S4 and shaved off 5 seconds, which I don't think would've been possible with the default setup. The reason for using the Peugeot setup was pure laziness. Screenshotting setups from YT with the PS4 and going back and forth between Capture Gallery and the game copying different values might be a fun minigame to some, but when I've got my gloves on and want to hit the road, I usually can't be bothered.

I actually found I was faster with my DS4 when I found PJ Tierney's settings for controllers (They're on YouTube and probably on the forum somewhere.). Those, coupled with 2Technical's setups where what shaved my times.

Hi GTR Technical, I noticed you've been doing WRX cars recently. Please can you do the Renault Megane RS RX! It seems to be the fastest in the class if you look at the leaderboard...

'18 or '19? It's the fastest in '18 but the 208 is faster in '19.

 

Also, it's more obvious in Rallycross, but there is a big difference between a Time Trial setup and a race setup.
