Hey everyone. Over the years, many people have asked JSR team members for insight on how to tune some of the most popular cars tunes that have come from people like JSR LeeCampbell, Rayzer, Rossi and more.

This thread will be updated with car tunes for both full PI classes and homologated divisions. Find below my list of tuning tutorials already available.


S CLASS (S800)

McLaren F1 [Tune Shared - 22nd at Road Atlanta]

Maserati MC12 [S800 + Homologated Supercar Renaissance] - Video Here

HOMOLOGATED DIVISIONS
Formula E [#33 Tune Shared - WR at Yas Marina North]
Formula 90's [Ferrari 641 tune shared - WR at VIR North]
Prototype Group Racing (McLaren M8B tune shared - WR at Catalunya) M8B Tuning Guide



FIRST TUNE GUIDE: The R class McLaren M8B in this week's division league Prototype Group Racing
UPDATE: McLaren M8B Tuning Guide Video - Forza 7
A car overlooked in most league lobbies this week as everyone gravitates towards the popular Ford GT40. I love driving without traction control, so am happy to have made this stable yet fast tune for you all (thought to prove it's worth with an image below!)

McLaren M8B Tune - #1 at Catalunya National
McLaren M8B Tuning Guide - JSR John - Forza 7

I have tuning guides lined up for some cars already and welcome any suggestions/requests going forward. Here are some tuning guides I'm keen to share of cars that are overlooked but can be very strong (Top 50, Top 20 in S/R class leaderboards) and #1 on Homologated leaderboards:

Look forward to requests and answering any questions people may have!

Happy racing,

John

Thank you for everyone who has jumped onboard and subbed to my channel. Over 20 new people since my first tuning guide!


NEW tuning guide below

McLaren F1 Tuning Guide Forza Motorsport 7

Really proud of this one, as the McLaren F1 never looked like a respectably fast car for any tracks on FM7. Merely hundredths away from a Top 20 at Road Atlanta here!
Already have a third guide ready for this week, but I'm happy to take any requests 😃

Have a good day!

Had the chance to see ALL your videos so far, and, must say - EXCELLENT job on these. Congrats on the LB lap times, including your latest WR. Amazing driving, trying to pick up some tires. Thanks for sharing!

Note: Certainly have enjoyed the commentaries describing your thoughts around the track as well.

New tuning guide: Maserati MC12

One of the hardest cars in the game to tune correctly, many people build the MC12 incorrectly which made me very motivated to share this for others to learn and benefit.

I set multiple world records with the MC12 in Supercar Renaissance last year and the car can hit Top 100 times around many tracks. A great lobby car, but not overpowered either like the Ford GT ('05) or Saleen S7.

Being a heavy mid-engined car with a long chassis, the Maserati struggles to rotate around many turns and lots of people have told me how it never seems to have enough grip despite whatever tyres put on. This guide will show you the key flaws in building the car, which building approach produces the fastest MC12, and how to tune for it to turn like a Supercar should.

This tutorial will help with tuning the MC12 both for S Class and the Homologated Division it sits in, Supercar Renaissance.

New video: How To Tune AWD Cars in Forza Motorsport

JSR John - How To Tune AWD Cars - AWD Tuning Guide - Forza 7 - Forza Motorsport 7 - Forza Horizon 4

I noticed that no one has really covered AWD cars in-depth before on YouTube, so I hope this helps any keen racers to avoid big (yet common) mistakes when it comes to building and fine tuning the fastest AWD car.

Let me know if it helps and have a good day!
