I havent been tuning for long but I thought id stick my two cents in as people seem to be liking wat im doing.
Tire pressure
30.0
30.0 (stock tires)
28.5
28.5 (street tires)
Camber
-2.0
-1.5
Toe
0.0
-0.2
Caster
5.0
ARB
21
16
Springs
Weight ÷2 = y × weight dis= front spring - y = rear spring. For example
2000 ÷2 =1000 ×0.51= 510(front spring) - 1000 =-490 (rear spring) just ignore the minus symbol
Ride height rarely below 4.8
Rebound
9.7
9.5
Bump
2.7
2.4
Aero
Full
Diff
40%
20%

The springs I move up or down together for softer/stiffer ride
This is where I start and more often than not its where I finish. If you do try it out lemme know if it works for you

This works for me.....

BASED ON THE THEORY OF 52%F / 48%R CAR BALANCE (Regardless of what the game tells you)

TYRES: F 28.5 / R 28.0

CAMBER: F 1.8 / R 1.6 (Based on 3.5 total)

TOE: F 0 / R 0 (If default gives you -1 or -2 Rear toe then leave)

CASTER: 6.0 (Increase as desired)

GEARS: Use Sport Tranny and adjust FD for track

ARBs: F 20.8 / R 19.2 (Based on 40 total)

SPRINGS: Curb Weight X 120%
New weight X 52% X 50% = F Springs
New Weight X 48% X 50% = R Springs

RIDE HEIGHT: 2 clicks above minimum

REBOUND: F 10.4 / R 9.6 (Based on 20 total)

BUMP: F 2.1 / R 1.9 (Based on 4 total)

AERO: F Lowest lbs / R = F / 33% X 67%

BRAKES: 48% Balance and 110% Force (increase as desired)

DIFF: F 30% / R 10%

Then make adjustments from here. I don't tend to make many at all as this set-up and my driving style seem to match.

Heres how I Flash Tune my cars

Tires: 28.5/28.5
Camber: -1.5 to -.8/-.5 to 0
Toe: Leave at 0
Caster: 5.0 to 5.5 depending on amount of camber I use
ARB: 20 to 25/18 to 22(depends on amount of power the car has)
Springs: increase stock value by 25 to 50 on F/R (mainly bc I like a stiffer car)
Height: 3 clicks above bottom
Rebound: 9.8/10
Bump: 2.7/3.2
Aero: Leave Stock for Flash tune
Brakes: Bias is stock/ Pressure=155% to 160%
Diff: 40/30

Thats my Flash setup. Hope it helps.

Here's my Flash tune for any RWD car I tune.

Tires: 29.0/28.5

Camber: -1.2/-0.9
Toe: 0.0/0.0
Caster: 5.2

ARBs: 29.0/26.0

Springs: 10% off front default value
10% off rear default value

Ride Height: 0.5 off front and rear default values

Rebound: 10.5/10.5
Bump: 3.2/2.8

Aero: Full Front and Rear

Diff: 40% Front/20% Rear

I have gotten top 50s with flash tunes on cars before if the build is correct for the track.

I like the tune I get from Forzatune 6 app to start with. Often it needs more camber than than the listed 2.0/2.2 so I often fine tune that to each car, plus ride height is good for 4.0 inches or better but I sometimes add a little extra rear height for better acceleration. I love the slider for adjusting for softer and firmer for the different cars. Ie for the NSX stiffen it up but for the Bac soften it up.

It uses stated weight distribution(WD) for the ARBs and Rebound, but an altered WD for the Springs and Bump. It generally adds 7 to the WD if both front and rear tires are the same size, but it reduces the amount altered if the rear tires are bigger than the front.

I can rarely get away with more than 52%balance for brakes on a RWD car, but I like it at 120%stong. Best test for brake balance is on the Alps tracks, especially after the long downhill then left turn. If your brake balance is out of wack that turn will punish you bad. You have to slowly brake there if you have your balance off, but if you have the right amount of balance you can get right up to the turn before slamming the brakes without locking them then turn.

Here is an update on my "flash" tune

This works for me.....

BASED ON THE THEORY OF 52%F / 48%R CAR BALANCE (Regardless of what the game tells you)

TYRES: F 28.5 / R 28.0

CAMBER: F 2.1 / R 1.9 (Based on 4 total)

TOE: F 0 / R 0 (If default gives you -1 or -2 Rear toe then leave)

CASTER: 6.0 (Increase as desired)

GEARS: Use Race Tranny where possible and use Forza 6 tune app for power range gearing - adjust FD for track

ARBs: F 20.8 / R 19.2 (Based on 40 total)

SPRINGS: Curb Weight X 120%
New weight X 52% X 50% = F Springs
New Weight X 48% X 50% = R Springs

RIDE HEIGHT: Low as possible but have Rear 2-3 clicks above front.

REBOUND: F 10.4 / R 9.6 (Based on 20 total)

BUMP: F 2.1 / R 1.9 (Based on 4 total)

AERO: F Lowest lbs / R = F / 33% X 67% - Full on F&R for Grip Cars

BRAKES: 52 - 47% Balance and 110% Force - Check the braking distance when tuning. (I have more than a few RWD at 47% balance.

DIFF: F 30% / R 10%

Just a few alterations that suit me better now.
Then make adjustments from here. I don't tend to make many at all as this set-up and my driving style seem to match.

This is just a starting point I start with if I want to save some time and not start from scratch but like everyone else has said everyone has their own style and you should tune according to what you like. In my experience, the best way to tune a car is by feel. Make sure to run more than just a couple laps. The longer you stay with it the easier it will get to make those little adjustments that will make the car just right for you. I have been playing forza since forza 2 but I just starting tuning in forza 6 and have been pretty happy with the results so far.

My base starting point for rwd

tires 28/28

camber 2.0/1.5

toe .2/-.2

caster 5.5 to 6.0

gears I always try to go for race trans if possible so I can adjust for track

roll bars 23/20

springs depends on car but usually take 10-20 percent off stock to start

ride height low as possible unless it bottoms out

dampers 6.8/6.5

bump 5.2/5.0

aero stock to start

brakes 50/140

diff wide range that depends on car but usually start stock and adjust as I go

P.S. If anyone has awd or fwd flash tune they can post it would be appreciated since those tend to be more difficult than rwd

I'll use my Ferrari 360 CS as example which weighs 2650 lbs and has 44% front weight.

easiest way to flash tune is to take weight of the car and multiply it by .35. That will more or less evenly distribute the weight of the car on all 4 tires. For example 2650x.35= 927lb. You then take that and multiply by .44 which is front weight of car which will give you 408 lbs in front and the difference for the rear which would be 518. This gives you a very stable car when combined with breaking down the damper settings in a similar way.

For dampers start with 16-18 and divide by weight distribution (16x.44=7 for the front and remainder in rear at about 9. Now Forza says you can run between 50% - 75% total damping for the bump. I like to run at about 67%. So take your front damper wich is 7 and multiply it by .67 which will give you 4.6 front bump for this particular car.

This will immediatly give you a balanced car and you can add about 5% stiffness to your rear spring settings that way all you have to do is lower the front springs to tune your steady state oversteer.

I usually set my breaks at 200 force/50 balance that seems to stop quick without sliding at a bout 70-80%

Accel is usually very low around 10% and Decel usually around 35-50.

PSI usually at about 27-28 and camber about 1.8 both ends.

Aero is rear weight divided by front weight multiplied by the amount of front downforce your using. That will give you your rear downforce.

-0..1 rear toe.

caster about 5.8-6 seems to be sweet spot.

Roll bars usually with 4 of each other (ex. 20f 16r.) if you want a loser feel you can flip those but i usually tune with the springs cuz its the safest and doesnt affect braking or body roll.

Your set free.

My base tune in FM7 (RWD, front engine cars) :

Tires: 27.5/27.5

Camber: -1.8 to -2.0 front and -1.5 rear

Toe: keep it for fine tuning according to tracks

Caster: 6.2-7.0

ARB: both at 25-30ish, then I lower them according to experienced over/understeer on track

Springs: usually do +50 to +100 on both spring rates, tune height according to bottom out of suspension with rear 1 tick higher than front

Aero: Max

Damping: Mostly do +2 to +3 to both rebound base stats and -1 to -2.5 to both bumping stats

Brake: Start at 40% balance/90% force then use braking info for 60-0/100-0 to raise balance up to 44ish and force around 88-91ish

Diff. : 50-72% accel./15-30% decel.

Here's how I base tune most of my RWD cars
