Haven't got around to that one yet but will give it a go. You got a sharecode for your tune on it?



Sure:

126 847 478

I don't usually share tunes, unless I'm comfortable with a reasonable measure of success with them myself. This one may not be my best, but I guess it didn't suck enough to clear the bar. I welcome any constructive criticism, though.


Cheers, will run it shortly and let you know :)

If anyone wants to try my tune of the Ford Roadster for the Trial, just search for the tune by my username, as that's easier to remember and type than a share code. It's a bit of a happy coincidence that the tune was created some time ago for a Fortune Island rivals event on Tarmac, and I tried it with all the different tyre options, and dirt tyres gave the fastest time even on Tarmac, so it's ideal for this Trial. When I did the Trial, it was so much faster than everyone else that I was worried my teammates might think I was using a cheat.

@focus 03 - tried both (FWD and AWD). At mudkickers it was all about not getting into first water (at corner) on that straight with jumps or I will end up doing barrel roll on one of the jumps. Race 2 and 3 was easy with both types of drivetrain. FWD was good even on dirt, because car doesn't have enough power to spin tires ;)

If anyone is loooking for non-obvious choice -> Ranger T6. Non-obvious in this sense that it starts at PI A703. It was not great for second race, but did the work.

One question for builders/tuners: what supsension do You use for this trial? I was using in all of my cars either stock or street suspension. Maybe I'm missing something and should try off-road suspension, so I wouldn't lose so much speed in water?

edit: fun fact for my "rivals challenge" drivers - was building roadster for trial and realized that last time I used it was in december, when we was doing ambelside sprint LOL

My tunes are:
- if its tarmac/road, then its on race suspension
- if its offroad/rally, then its on rally suspension, but not at max height, just a tad lower

Also at Mudkickers I never take the line trough first water, always on outer banking, near railing (don't know where actual line goes, but keeping it on dry land is faster). Same goes for Tarn Hows.

Yeah, my general philosophy is similar. Ride height usually ends up in the middle somewhere. In lower classes, you can sometimes get away with stock suspension, especially if you want to spend the PI on something else. Rally tires if you can too, but if you don't have the PI for it, sport is usually enough.

Same here. It was fun. Except for first race where a lunatic decided to take me out at the start of the race by turning straight into me and pushing me off. Managed to catch up and overtake the rest of the field. And another lunatic who was driving in reverse.
We won despite the tactics of those two.

Feels a very long time ago! I’ve just looked back and see you beat me by 1 tenth and Rayne beat us both - we are 11th - 13th on the leaderboard behind 10 Peel Tridents.

I seem to have lost my C class Roadster at some point. I have three currently - A class dirt, A class road (drag tyres) and B class road/dirt - Breeminator’s excellent tune.

I know that, but wasn't able. Was always in traffic ;)

El barto/peregrine/others. Another question about suspension -> do you change anything besides height?
I just can't justify spending (If I remember correctly, in Focus it was) 5 PI points to change ride height.

@roadster in trial - well, it gets the job done.
....but I have to say, that I did have more fun in Falcon, which was doing 3seconds slower lap times.

edit: one more thing at roadster: do I remember correctly that you have to change gear at 4500rpm (where red zone starts)?

I change toe, camber and arb, sometimes also mess with springs and dampers.
Also in lower class few PI won't do much in terms of power. I also prefer handling over power. Probably not fastest tunes, but that's what I prefer.

PS
That extreme arb setting mentioned many times doesn't seem to work for me, as usual result is slidy back end. Same with the diff, but there usually car just won't turn into corner. So I don't use either.

I use the midpoint formula. Search for the tuning tutorial by Hoki Hoshi on Youtube, and you'll find it. There are other formulas if you prefer, but I find this one is pretty good.

You use that to get a starting value, then test drive and adjust until it's where you like it. Too much understear: soften the front, and stiffen the rear. Only a few ticks at a time. Retest and repeat until as desired.
Too much overstear: do the opposite.

If you start seeing the opposite extreme, stop adjusting, and adjust something else, because the problem is likely elsewhere.

If you want to know more than that, you'll have to ask somebody who knows this stuff better than I do.

So i gave it a go Peregrine and i quite like the handling, very nice indeed. It turns on a dime with the way you have set it compared to some others that i ran but i suspect maybe that was tyre grip? Rally/Snow tyres was it (although this would probably blow the PI wouldn't it and i forgot to have a look in garage to see if they were)) or just good settings? Unfortunately the power lacks somewhat to catch some of the other drivers who were obviously running some good tunes in the Raptors and the Supervan. Ran a FWD which did quite well but as others have said, when you hit the water it throws it about a bit. Anyway, thanks for sharing, it was a fun tune :)

Very nice tune as usual Bree.

Leaves them all for dead, agree with the rest, nothing really gets close to it.

The Bronco BJ gets quite some distance from the others too but not as much as the Roadster.

The Mustang 65 dominates race 1 but lacks it for 2 and 3 but is still quite competitive.

Going to race a few more Fords and see what else is good.

Looks like an even field of cars for this trial if the correct tunes are applied which is refreshing for once. :)


I used the '81 Fiesta XR2 for the Trial. It was originally tuned for road, but turned out it really good for the offroad too. It was neck & neck with a couple of fast '17 Raptor and '92 Escort on the 1st race, and beat everyone by a good margin on the 2nd and 3rd. The acceleration was quick, and the short wheelbase, strong brakes and high road clearance (even with lowered spring), works really well on the sharp corners and jumps.

The share code for the tune if anyone want to try it out: 106 803 693

Yes, it was Rally tires, and they did eat quite a bit of PI. I had enough left to upgrade the gearbox, (which actually didn't take much PI at all itself) and track and tire width. But I think the pistons were the only engine upgrades I was able to squeeze in. I was immediately disappointed by the complete lack of power. But after I shortened the gears, I was able to make it work.

I chose it because it was closest to the bottom of B class stock, so I figured I'd have more room to work with. Also because it was a Rally division car, and I already had the '09 tuned for something else. If it didn't work out, the Wrangler was going to be my next choice.

I was able to beat the AI in the first race, and came pretty close in the 3rd. The second race I completely messed up early on, but was still able to get back in the race, and catch up and pass the AI.... until I messed up again. But that was me. Not the car.

For those who don't have DLC cars to run in the Trial such as the Barret Jacksons i have tuned the F-100 for these races.

Was quite surprised by it actually, have got Rally/Snow tyres on and its got a decent amount of power under the hood as well which lets it keep up with and dominates at times most of cars in the Trial.

Really happy with this tune tbh :)

Sharecode is - 144 549 968 Enjoy!!!!!!!

Oh and please be aware that to get the most out of my tune (and many others when i think about it) turn off TC and SC :)

Hey Rex,
I had a different result with the '65 Stang. I couldn't quite get out in front fast enough on Race 1, but still took it handily. It's just tough because of close quarters. But it tore up Race 2 (finished about 10 seconds ahead of second place), and owned Race 3 though not by the same margin. The '32 Coupe was better, but the Stang was still solid.

I am going to try your F100 tune...was thinking of doing one for that as well as the non-BJ Bronco (since I don't have the DLC stuff)

The Trial - I originally tuned up a Ford Lotus Cortina. It won but it wasn't anything to write home about. I followed it with the Ford Five-Window Coupe and wow, it owned the track. I was a little worried about not having enough top end, but since they were circuits, figured it would be good enough. Understatement of the week. It got to the front immediately and just stayed there. We still lost, but clearly not my fault. lol. Ran the Mustang after. First tune, meh. Tweaked it a bit, and it is nearly as good as the Coupe. It doesn't quite take off as fast, but it sets a pace and then keeps going. Thinking about doing up a non-BJ Bronco to see what I can get out of it.

1932 Ford De Luxe Five-Window Coupe Tune: 342 304 524
1965 Ford Mustang Tune: 171 107 217

Playground Games - Does anyone remember when I found out the Limo is considered a Super Saloon? I said I'd use it each time. Well, guess what? lol. Enter the Playground Games version of the 2013 Cadillac XTS Limousine. Cuz hey, it doesn't matter anymore, right? It actually performed alright. It had a decent speed so it could evade, though not out-maneuver. But it could score a few flags, it blocked like a champion, and it was the highest score on King games. I wouldn't run it if it mattered, but it was def funny showing up in the dunes with a 30-foot long car. Oh, and when I finished, I just happened to be in a ForzaLive event. First event was the drift zone...so I ran it with the Limo. Hmmm, I just happen to have a spare limo lying around now...could use a drift tune. :)

PR Stunts - I did all three with the Maserati Tipo 61. It's fast, light, and set up rally-style. Plus it's just plain fun to drive.
1961 Maserati Tipo 61 Tune: 173 792 945
Oddly enough, the pic for the Arthur's Seat Danger Sign shows a Mercedes G63 6x6 going off of it?? So you know what I gotta do now. lol

Hard at Work - Ran the Macan before I realized it was the reward car. Was thinking of the Toureag as well. There are more powerful builds, but it is lighter and doesn't barrel the corners. Can slide/trim most of the flags and keep the speed up.
2019 Porsche Macan Turbo Tune: 100 929 686

Coasting It Yet again, time for the Trailcat. Thinking of trying the T100 as well.
2016 Jeep Trailcat Tune: 228 168 177

Up Your Street - I've had this for awhile. I use it from time to time and while it does win, it just doesn't feel like it should. I'm going to have to spend more time on it.

Hello once again,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for this weeks seasonal for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, all shared. ~ tune name / share code. If you use anything offered here, and you like it/it was useful to you, please don't forget to leave a like.

First up, online:

**Trial: "Fords in Fall" | Dirt Racing | (B700) Fords
**Car used: 1940 Ford De Luxe Coupe (Autoshow 44,000 Cr)
**Tune: B700 Dirt / 141 764 970

A.I. performance - actually this week I can not say which was harder, trial or offline/solo, seemed very same-same to me, even as far as to say solo was under performing?! The A.I. certainly ran very different cars in solo, much more variety (I saw on youtube that it (trial) lacked variety even if not the same choices as I experienced).
Lots of choices this week, bypassed all the likely much better choices, so as to have something i felt no one else would be using, even if I assume almost everyone has it (or had it) - '40 Ford.
Offline/solo, really had no issue racing the tracks vs. unbeatable, but as I said, the A.I. strangely seemed to lack the normal unbeatable competitiveness this week. In the trial did really well, much better than I would have guessed - I assumed I would beat the A.I., however not do well against other players - so maybe people were picking badly during my experience. Car/tune only really has issues with the Lakehurst track due to uphill section, no issue on other two, car/tune does very well in dirt. Tune is AWD, twin turbo, rally tires, no bumpers, no aero.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Bamburgh Castle | (A800) Super Saloons
**Car used: 2010 Vauxhall Insignia VXR (Carpass ~ Autoshow 42,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Games / 167 650 951

Had a great game, I assume all player (well most, ended 4v4) knew that win or lose equaled a prize. Game came down to 2 wins vs 2 wins, with final event as decider - our team won. Car/tune is okay at this location, handled the bumps and sand well enough, certainly has adequate grip (does lose traction, but gains again quickly). Tune is stat wise the same as another tune I have, although this one has better clearance and sightly better acceleration - AWD as standard, rally tires, no aero.

PR Stunts:
- Lakeshore Speed Zone, 1978 Hoonigan Ford Escort RS1800 - 'S900 Rally Trial' (680 307 281),
- Peak Moor Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544),
- Arthur's Seat Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544) - I did use this car/tune, and I did complete the stunt, however it took a lot of effort, and using a different car may be a better option - the Rimac does however have the advantage of massive acceleration, and so only needs a short run up, 'if' you can hold it on target, it will easily make the distance without needing to start too far back from the jump - it can not make the corner into the jump at speed, so you will need to cross country it.

Solo championships - Raced against Expert, Steering: Simulation, ABS: on, Traction/Stability; Off, Gearbox: Auto.

**Championship: "Up Your Street” | Street Racing | (S1 900) Modern Supercars
**Car used: 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SV (Autoshow 500,000 Cr)
**Tune: S900 Road / 155 922 889

I am not sure what was going on here - while I did use this car/tune, there were some issues in this event for me - not sure if it was the event, the car or the driver - firstly, the car should have a ton of grip, yet did not act as if it had the grip it should have on paper - second the driving/braking line was very wrong , it was displaying much as if the grip should have been there. So either the car is broken/odd and doesn't have the grip it would indicate, or the driving line was wrong (okay it is often wrong, but in this case more wrong than normal). Due to these reason not much else I can add, car/tune will beat the A.I., and assuming same issues everywhere, will beat A.I. yet not perform well doing it. Car/tune is AWD as standard, running race tires, with Forza air.

**Championship: "Hard at Work" | Dirt Racing | (A800) Sports Utility Heroes
**Car used: 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo (Autoshow 105,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 CC Offroad / 225 182 702

Works well, nice balance, easy handling, plenty of power for event. Better on dirt, less useful vs. the A.I. on tarmac sections. Tune is 6.2L V8 engine swapped, with the widebody option, including roof lights and brushguard.

**Championship: "Coasting It" | Cross Country | (A800) Extreme Offroad
**Car used: 1993 Toyota #1 T100 Baja Truck (Autoshow 500,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 CC Offroad / 637 166 137

Ran this event on 'unbeatable' - not expert. just to see how it/I would do - and this proved successful. Only Coastal Rush was an issue here, taking the lead in the last few hundred meters of the race (only the one A.I. however, others were not near the leader), other races were easier and getting to the front was less troublesome. This is the same Extreme Offroad as from last week, - AWD, 6.2L V8.

Have fun.

Mine is very similar to yours (by the stats at least )and I cannot believe how the Roadster dominates each race.

Won by third of a lap on first race and by 10-15 seconds on the other two and all I did was adjust the gearing a little and it perfomed and handled very well for all three races (TCS/SC Off), so with some fine-tuning I can imagine it being even better.

It was actually the most fun I've had doing a trial in a long time.

Might even have a few more goes at it. LOL

F100 tune is good fun that i can tell you :)

1st race is always a hit and miss for some weird reason on all cars i've run bar a couple of the BJ's, the F100 is not exempt, she does good though if you hit the jumps correctly.

Treat the car hard but gracefully and she's a dream to run.

That Ford De-Luxe Five-Window Coupe really has some go in there, went to play with mine and compared it with my Focus RS and Roadster.
It does lack a bit of grip compared to those two, but its lighter and really goes flying from the start line. Lap times were just a bit slower then Roadsters.
So if anyone wants to try my tune, for B 700 De-Luxe Coup, tune is - 177 425 525

Have fun everyone

So Rex,

I tried your F100 tune. Well, let's just say you and I must drive differently. lol. No worries, we all have our own style and preferences. I knew when I saw the thin tires on the front it was going to be interesting. I just could not get the maneuverability out of it for Race 1...that, and I flipped it each time on that second hill. I had that a little when I ran the Coupe too but softening up the rear a little settled it right down. Races 2 and 3 were ok but I could never quite settle into a good groove with it. Sorry.

Mocked up a tune of my own, it has 10 less horsepower, 2 less torque, but it is 700 lbs lighter. A little slippery but I wanted to keep with max power/grip ratio.

1956 Ford F-100 Tune: 874 625 123

Then I did a non-BJ Bronco. Just to see what I could do with it since people were commenting about the Barrett-Jackson version. Wow. I am going to run times to compare with the '32 Coupe but this thing owned. Race 1, I DNF'd half the field. Took a screen cap of it just to make sure. Race 2, it even pulled strong going uphill. Race 3 had one AI anywhere near me, everything else was far back there. Gonna run times tomorrow to see how it shakes out comparatively.

I agree about non-BJ Bronco. Just build one myself, stock suspention with offroad tires. Really good and easy to drive.

I tried your F100 tune. Well, let's just say you and I must drive differently. lol. No worries, we all have our own style and preferences. I knew when I saw the thin tires on the front it was going to be interesting. I just could not get the maneuverability out of it for Race 1...that, and I flipped it each time on that second hill. I had that a little when I ran the Coupe too but softening up the rear a little settled it right down. Races 2 and 3 were ok but I could never quite settle into a good groove with it. Sorry.

Mocked up a tune of my own, it has 10 less horsepower, 2 less torque, but it is 700 lbs lighter. A little slippery but I wanted to keep with max power/grip ratio.

True, was thinking of softening the rear end for that second jump (it's not the only car i have that jump do it to). Does amuse me when it happens and i just flip straight over and keep going lol!!!

Usually don't increase front tyre width, has become somewhat of a habit for me unfortunately.

Will give yours a run and see how i fair.

I know what you mean about different driving styles, i try some top tuners tunes and i drive them horribly but they seem to get top 10 times with them.

As soon as i do up a tune myself for my style, it gets me pretty close to their times and sometimes beat their times (though not all the time, Jezza, Rayne, Zipper, El Barto, FN and Bree can usually leave me for dead in the rivals times by a few seconds or so).

Thanks for the download and feedback, much appreciate it :)
