The 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS is a good starters car to practice basic tuning. I`ll give my setup as a template, no copyright. Moore tunes will follow, different car-types like rear-engined, FWD or 4WD. Notice that these basics can moore or less work on other simular cars, the 66 Nova-setup is a base for most front-engine RWD cars even if spings/dampers needs to be adjusted for heavier cars.

Ok, the 66 Nova. To do a tune you`ll need a racesuspension, adjustable ARB`s(antirollbars) a sport- or racegearbox and sport/race differencial. ARB`s needs to be stiffened when you improve tiregrip, to handle the g-force.

Gears: Maxed V10T: 3.0 - 2.50/1.75/1.25/1.00/0.85/0.75
Maxed stock V8: 3.0 - 2.70/1.89/1.49/1.10/0.92/0.80
Allignement: 1.2/0.8 - 0.0/0.0 - 5.5 (this is a good basic setup for most front-engined cars, use telemetry to finetune)
ARB: 20.0/20.0 (was 22.5, softened to make the Nova "come alive")
Springs: 60.0/60.0
Rideheight: F22.4 - R15.2
Dampers: Rebound: F14.5/R14.5
Bump F4.8/R4.8
Brakes: no adjustment
Differencial*: 55/50 - or when AWD`ed; 0.0/0.0 - 55/50 - 100=100%RWD Notice how much better grip a 100% RWD or FWD car has when "AWD`ed". Strange physics they`ve made.

This setup runs good with both a maxed (incl. turbo) stock V8 or a maxed V10. Might be a bit wild/soft with a maxed V12.

Hope I haven`t forgotten anything, just ask if..

Next, playin`with a 1983 VW Golf GTI

Two versions, first has a maxed stock engine. Added everything exept no oilcooling & sport flywheel to keep it inside A800. Sport brakes, sport chassie improvment(stabilizers) race weight.
Street tires, F215, R235. Converted to AWD and then set to 0%=100%FWD

Gears: 3.75 - 2.89/1.99/1.49/1.16/0.94/0.80
Allignement: F 1.2/ R.08 - 0.0/0.0 - 5.5
ARB: F22.5 R22.5
Springs: F45.0 R45.0
Height: F22.5 R21.5
Dampers: F4.9/14.5 R4.9/14.5
Aero: F80 R150
Diff: (AWD) 55/0 0.0/0.0 0%=100%FWD

Put in a maxed rally-engine and the rabbit really runs. Everything maxed, race tires. Still F215 R235 to balance the car. Needs some small adjustmensts:

Gears: 3.30 - 2.89/1.99/1.49/1.16/0.94/0.80
Allignement: F 1.2/ R.08 - 0.0/0.0 - 5.5

The Corvette C8, hotted stock engine first.
Basicly, this setup will fit most rear engine cars*, only springs/rideheight might need adjustments.

Gear: 3.08 rear, 2.70/1.85/1.40/1.10/0.90/0.76
Allign 1.2/0.8 0.0/0.0 5.5
ARB 38.0/40.0 (40/44 with race v12)
Springs 65.0/72.0
Damping F4.8/14.0, R5.0/14.8
No aero (race version=F145 R130)
Brakes not adjusted
Diff F: 0/0 - R: 55/50 - 100% rear, F55% + 65-82% rear makes a good 4WD

Racetires maxed, track widt maxed F/R

* like f.ex Porsche`s, Toyota MR2..

1982 Porsche 911T S1 grip tune

is a cheap plain Porsche with a potential. Swap to AWD, add another turbo (!) and convert it to a widebody.
Then give it racetires, maximun widt front/rear and I ended up with BBS-wheels to match the PI.

Race gearbox, race diff, race brakes, suspension, ARB`s & raceweight.

The engine: Race airfilter, exhaust, cam, valves, block, compression & turbo. Sport flywheel. This should give 433KW & 1095kg.

(( Alternative: 3.6F6TT engine, give it race exhaust, race block, sport turbo and you have 451Kw-1113kg. Reduce to sportbrakes to end up at S900 ))

Gears: 3.85 - 2.99/1.99/1.49/1.16/0.94/0.80 (3.30 if 3.6F6TT)
ARB: F: 28.36, R: 32.83
Springs: F:45.0 R:55.0
Height: F:19.2 R:18.2
Dampers: F:4.8/12.0 R:5.2/14.5
Aero: F:100 R:190
Differencial: 55/0 - 56/50 - 55%

Doing this will give you a tamed racer!

1997 Nissan GTR V-spec S1-tune

Maxed stock engine exept for sport ignition & flywheel. Stock brakes, race suspension & ARB`s. Race weight, sport clutch, race tranny, stock driveline, race diff. Race tires max width. Wings F & R.
This should give you 496Kw & 1247 kilo.

Gears: 4.20 - 2.89/1.99/1.49/116/94/78
Allignement: F:1.2 R:0.8 0/0 5.5
ARB: F:33.47 R:38.07
Springs: F:52.0 R:50.8
Height: F:16.1 R:15.8
Dampers: F:4.8/14.4 R:4.8/14.4
Aero: F:100 R:190
Diff: 55/0 56/50 60%

I ended up driving it around the whole map, enjoying the balanced racer. Another drivers tune!

Taming the wild Morris Minor - a good & realistic C-class tune. No wings or awd here, just removed bumpers 8-)

Add turbo, racetires, F:185/R:195 Mickey Thomson ET drag wheels is a good match. Remove bumpers. Sport gearbox, sport diff. And off course, race suspension & ARB`s.

Engine: Sport air, race carburetor, race ignition, street cam, race valves/block/comp/turbo/intercooler, sport oilcooler, street flywheel. Adds up to 122Kw or 163hp.

Gears: 3.43
Allignement: F:1.2 R: 0.8 0/0 5.5
ARB: F: 7.71 R: 7.24
Springs: F: 45.0 R: 45.0
Height: F: 23.5 R: 22.2
Dampers: F: 4.8/8.4 R: 4.8/8.4
Diff: 55%

This is a "drivers setup" with good realistic handling. It can win races too but rwd`s has allmost no grip in tgis game so here`s a AWD-setup:

Race gearbox, set to 3.30. Race diff set to 0/0 55/50 100 =100% RWD
Reduce engine by adding sport airfilter & sport exhaust.

Even if the car is heavier now, is still RWD and has a bit less power it will be a lot easier to win races in. But nearly not as fun to drive as the RWD-setup ;)

Class C 1963 Opel Kadett Rallye

Played with this tiny Opel to se what it could do as a class C racer. Ended up beeing wery funny little racer, perfect on closer tracks but not a top-speed champ.

To get some grip I converted it to AWD but running it as 100% RWD. Added turbo, vintage racing-tires, Mickey Thomson ET Drag wheels fits the old Opel perfect.
Track-widt widened step 1 F & R. Tirewidth F:165 , R:185 gives good balance & turn-in.

Race clutch+gearbox & differential, Rallye suspension, race ARB`s F & R. Street chassis & street weight. = 1607Lb, 729kg

Engine: Street intake, sport carb, race ignition, race exhaust. Stock cam,race valves, race block, race compression, race turbo, race intercooler, stock oilcooler, sport flywheel. = 152hp

Gears: 3.75 - 2.85/1.89/1.34/1.00/0.82/0.72
Allign: (as usual) F:1.2 R:0.8 0.0/0.0 5.5
ARB: F: 8.84 R: 8.00
Springs: F: 90.3 R: 90.3
Height: F:10.3 R: 10.3
Dampers: F: 4.0/6.8 R: 4.0/6.8 (bump/rebound)
Brakes stock
Differential: 0/0 55/45 100% rear = RWD but with reasonable grip

The setup is soft and will do well in rallying as well. Adjust the diff and it is an AWD. Feels like riding a hotted-up stock old car, you`ll get sea-sick in the back-seat but it handles wery well.

To SumoElch7625477 and whoever might want some A-class JDM racers

1997 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-SPEC: 641 613 658

As usual from me, kind of an all-round circuit-tune but this can be raced. Hard! One of my test is a speed-zone and this one has the record(so far). Notice how I set up the gearbox.
4th-5th-6th gears comes close to make them usable in hot racing. I`m using a controller & manual w.o clutch. When I`m approaching a bend at 6th gear, instead of braking I`ll just shift down to 5th.
That`s enough to get the weight moved forward in a well balanced setup

1992 Honda NSX-R : 760 082 419
widebody: 259 701 953

1993 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-SPEC : 390 062 571 (wide)

1997 Mazda RX7 widebody: 113 200 864

1998 Toyota Supra RZ: 176 672 120 or 117 877 758

1995 Toyota MR2 : 124 088 177

Some racetunes, first the

1990 Chevrolet Camaro Iroc A-tune. Stock engine, AWD`ed but set to 100%RWD.

Camaro code: 109 401 546

1970 Buick GSX S1-tune. Stock engine, AWD`ed to ca90%RWD.

Buick code: 507 167 106

Playground thinks that the "big block" Buick engine are about 200kg heavier than
the Chevy 6.2L but they are so wrong again. Buick, as well as Oldsmobile and Pontiac`s
455cui engine are about the same weight as a small block Chevy. And same size.

Thanks! I`m having fun with classic musclecar-tunes these days, working on a B700 heat. Trying to give them a kind of "realistic" handling, like a worn
weekend-warrior would handle after some tuning & upgrades. vintage tires, max 245/295, no weight reduction.

Lots of work behind this kind of tunes, every parameter plays a part in the final result. A bit too much bodyroll could be eliminated by increasing the swaybar a
notch, but that might make the front end to understeer or the rear to slide insteasd of leaning & gripping. Tiregrip, bodyroll, ARB`s, springs & shocks (dampers)
must be harmoniced.

Testdriving the tunes around the Goliath against the not so unbeatables. Even if these old classics is a handful to drive they`re surpricingly fast arond the map.

Finished so far:

1964 Checrolet Impala code: 727 406 754 (try it!)

1970 AMC Rebel code: 135 384 236

1965 Pontiac GTO code: 260 695 059

Try them & have fun!

Adding a few moore musclecars! Despite their bodyroll & soft suspension they`re still pretty fast
Have added a front spoiler on some of these, just for the right look. It is turned down to minimum..

1970 Buick GSX code: 159 733 090

1969 Oldsmobile 442 code: 133 483 633

1970 Mercury Cougar code: 133 667 142

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle code: 136 487 696

These are not ment to be compatible but they still are, almost..

1957 Plymouth Belvedere code: 801 766 092

1952 Hudson Hornet code: 471 619 459

The Huson is given a transmission based on Ford`s C4 automat+a 0.80 overdrive
That`s 2.48/1.48/1.00/0.80 and a 3.0 rear. It doesn`t really need the overdrive to reach it`s top speed
but it just feels right to cruise this tourque-engine on low revs. A close-ratio 6 speed here would kill the "feeling"

Any kind of feedback is welcome! Any requests?
