I was (and still am) a tuner in FM4, and I recently took the plunge into XB1/FM5 back in mid-July. Now that I’ve had some time with FM5, I’ve put together the start of my tuning library (linked below). Lou-ne-tunes was a name given to me by one of my club mates in FM4, but my tunes are not loony, as the name would suggest. At least not in a silly way . With my tunes, I work to balance grip, speed, quickness and braking. I prefer responsive chassis, just enough throttle over-steer to change direction (but not so much that the backend is constantly sliding out) and the ability to trail-brake, with a touch of off-throttle drift. Since I do not use Manual w/ Clutch most of the time (I can do Mw/C pretty well, I just prefer Manual - My old hands cannot handle the stress LOL), I usually build in shift speed to my tunes as well.
Lou-ne-tunes list of FM5 tunes (updated regularly):
Feel free to leave comments on the tunes in the file, and don’t forget to like the tune in game (assuming you like the tune of course)
Normal Steering, Braking Line only, & Manual. All other assists are off.
I also use a standard XB1 Controller (oh how I wish I could use my Fanatec CSR set-up on XB1/FM5)
Q & A:
Q: Are your tunes LB tunes?
A: Yes, they will set a time on the LB , but as far as getting you in the top 100, I don’t know (that’s a combination of driver skill, the car, AND the build/tune). My goal is not to set top 100 times, but my tunes are capable of breaking into the top 2000 with me at the wheel (probably higher with a better driver). My goal is creating builds/tunes that are fun to drive in career, rivals and lobbies. BUT… If you set a top 1000 LB time with one of my tunes, let me know. The only tune I have that has set a top 1000 tine is my Mazda USF2000 A-Class build on Catalunya (904th last time I looked). I have some top 2000 times as well…
Q: Do you take tuning requests?
A: You are free to post your request here or send it to me in a PM; however, I make no guarantee that I will get to it (especially if it’s an expensive car and I don’t already own it). If you need specific parts included, be sure to specify them in your request please.
Q: I really like your tunes. Do you have a Lou-ne-tunes vinyl?
A: Yep - I also have some liveries. If you follow me as a creator, you should be able to find them pretty easily.
