PTG Honda Tuning Competition

PTG would like to welcome all tuners to our latest competition which will see participants tune three different Honda cars (details below) in Forza Motorsport 6, which will then be hot lapped by a number of PTG members around the famous Silverstone National circuit. The average time in each tune will be calculated, with the fastest average time across all three tunes to be crowned the champion.

Once you have completed your tune, you will then need to share it but can you please ensure that you leave a unique description then message me on XBL when the tune is available to download. There are a number of PTG members that will be testing your tune so each crew member will message you separately to work out a suitable time to download your tune.

The PTG member crew will then take your tune out on the track for 1 warm up lap just to get a feel for the car before then completing 10 laps and recording the fastest possible lap time.

We will provide a short review of the pros and cons of each individual tune that you do and the average time that we were able to set as well.

DEADLINE

2359 UK time 21st July 2017

Entries submitted after this time will not be included in the competition.

The Cars:

Car 1: Honda Civic Type-R '07 - C Class tune, NO AERO.
Car 2: Honda S2000 '09 (Not the Fast & Furious one) - B Class tune, NO AERO.
Car 3: Honda NSX-R '05 - A Class tune, no restrictions.

The Track:

Silverstone National Circuit

Rules:

Observe the Class and restrictions for each car. The rest of the build is completely down to you.

Once you have completed your tunes please message PTG Ducky or PTG Benny here or via Xbox with the 'Description' of the tune

Testers: PTG Coops / PTG Ducky / PTG Benny / PTG Brains / PTG W4RLOCK

The deadline for this event is 21st July 2017 2359 UK time, entries submitted after this time will not be included in the competition.

Also, can I please ask that you message me the open source tune once you have completed it and we will tune the car on your behalf (it will be a private tune so no one else will see this).

Everyone is welcome to join this competition.

We have received a number of tunes already for this tuning comp which has produced some really quick times.

There is still plenty of time to start working on a tune in any/all of the Honda cars listed above which the PTG testers will take out on the track for 10 laps to record the fastest possible time.

Thanks team - there has been an update to the rules on how to submit the tunes.

You do NOT need to OS your tunes, and we are happy for you to share your tune so all the testers can access them as they like. However can I please ask that you message me via XBL the description you used when you share your tunes to ensure we use the right one etc

Hi Benny and PTG Team,

I've finished my C Class Honda Civic 2007 and uploaded both tune and paint. Please find them at the following:

Tune Name: C PTG Silver Nat
Paint Name: PTG SnowmansDad1

For both tune and paint, please search the description for the following label: PTG Honda TC

I've had a blast tuning this car and running Silverstone National! Let me know what you think. I'm really interested in your feedback. :-)

I will have the S2000 and NSX tunes to you in the next week or so.

Good luck, everyone!

Here's a photo of my little Honda:

I'll certainly get my tunes shared prior to deadline. Got a couple of other things going on right now.

As far as brakes, my default pressure is set at 140....unless I find the particular car/class might need something different per my bad driving style.
