I'm trying to make a Ford Taurus that is very stable and has a lot of grip so its not drifting and sliding all over the place. I've been trying some out that I tinker around with on Forza Lab Calculator but haven't found any.

If you will post your Build and Car class, You might get several replies for your Taurus.
I've used the Forza Tuning Calculator many years.
I owned a 1994 Ford Taurus and liked driving it very much.

I should actually try driving this car before I write, but - unless you have a reason not to (race restriction?) - a rear wheel drive conversion & race weight reduction is where I think I'd begin.

I'll give you a tune from the Forza 4 Tuning Calculator, but if you race in R3 you could upgrade to more weight reduction and maybe lower the rim height to 19"'s or lower.
Another option is to build to S class PI700.

I'll be racing n a series in little over 2 hours. I will tune the Ford Taurus after that and send you a message on this site.
Although, I will post it here so other people can try the tune and see what they would.

Then I may rebuild it to PI700 and see what happens.

Any special track you are aiming at?

I did an R3 class tune for the Ford Taurus. It's in my storefront for free. Please check it out and let me know what you think everyone.

Tire pressure:
55 psi Front
53.5 psi Rear


Camber:
Front +4.1
Rear -3.7

Toe:
Front +5
Rear +3.8 to +4.2 based on your comfort level

Caster:
5.5 Degrees of Caster

Drop the ride height an additional .2 inches in the front, example of proper ride height ( Front: 4.2 Rear 4.4) <----This again is an example.
This will help level out the ride under weight transfer when accelerating through a turn.

Hopefully this will give you a basis to tune off of, again, this is a points tune.
