Hello everyone.

I'm PJ, you might recognise some of my work as a Forza painter. While painting and racing are my primary habits when playing Forza, I also like to build and tune cars from time to time. I don't pump out large quantties of tunes but the ones I do release are for cars that I've painted and spent a lot of time with. I wrote a long-form introduction over on my paint thread, so if you want to learn more about what I do and my experience with Forza go have a read.

All paints, tunes, vinyl groups and anything else I share can be found by looking up my gamertag or with the keyword PJT.

All leaderboard positions mentioned correct at the time of posting.

If you run any good laptimes with any of my tunes please post in this thread and I'll add them to that car's list.

Some new times:

Still need to run it on a few environments but at the moment it seems to be a strong car for the more technical circuits. It's got good top speed and acceleration for Multiplaye racing but on circuits like Road Atlanta and Sebring it'll lose out to tunes with more power.

If you're doing the 70s Grand Prix League this week I have a Lotus tune available that seems to do well in Pinnacle Division. I currently don't plan on doing a Rivals run to publish leaderboard positions but it has gotten me quite a few Top 100s so far. Search keyword is PJT as always.

I meant to try these this weekend- but got to ingrained in getting more of the career done. Definitely trying next weekend - any time I see "Watkins Glen" I got to try.

So first up will be the Mazda.

Thanks for checking these out. The Mazda will do well on the non-chicane variants at Watkins, whereas the S2000 will be good on those with the chicane.

I generally use the Mazda on the speed/acceleration tracks in the B/600 Hoppers, and the S2000 everywhere else. The BRZ's a Daytona specialist.

I've recently started running no assists (hardcore), so will pick some of these up and run against your times. Be nice to do some of the lower class stuff.

Much appreciated, thanks. The BRZ is a little tricky due to the rally engine but the others are super easy to control.

I ran the 2013 Mazda MX-5 at Sebring Short and got a 1:18.082 which is #27 overall! There's a few top 25s to be had. Tune is on rails, feels sublime, you wouldn't think it has 400+ hp in B class.

I knew it had potential ;)

I'm not quick enough to push a car from Top 100 to Top 20, but it does the job in the Hoppers and performs well on a number of circuits.

Top 20 you say? What about top 10s! :)

Sebring Short Wet: 1:23.020 (#7)
Silverstone Natl Wet: 1:04.287 (#6)

It's as if you've tuned it with me in mind. After you shared the MX-5 with more brake pressure it felt absolutely on the money. It's so easy, stable and planted. It's very easy to set really fast laps, and seeking time beyond that is perfectionism, which is what happened at Silverstone above, to be fair.

In the dry here's a couple of times:

Sebring Short: 1:17.823 (#19)
Silverstone Natl: 1:00.380 (#39) - I think I can improve on this.

Overall this is an absolute diamond tune and a really good livery to go with it.

I forgot to mention what I did in the MX-5 that seemed to work. I used 3rd gear in all the slow corners. It seemed to be just a tiny bit better than using 2nd. I'm sure if I use this method on Sebring Short, I could nick a couple more tenths.

I did the same when setting my times, the car seems to roll through corners better in 3rd thanks to the lower revs.

All of these cars are eligible for this week's Sim League; I recommend trying out the S2000 and MX5 in particular.
