Not at all man, this is what I need so that I can learn. I will try the tips you mentioned tomorrow and see what happens. It's nice to have someone be able to suggest + or - a click here and there. Thanks for the input!

I ran all three of your A class tunes. Good work! I got very similar results to Lou's corresponding tunes. (I ran them back-to-back but changed up the order from car to car.) I was able to handle your Mazda a bit better but still found it too slippery for my liking. The Sylvia is fast and handles pretty well but I had to be really careful going into corners. The Soarer was my favorite. It's grippy and I felt like I could push it more than the other two. I got a slightly better time (about .200 of a second) with Lou's Soarer but I'd say they're pretty even. Would you mind sending me your tunes? And thanks for sharing!

Ok the tunes are waiting for you next time you get on. Thanks for the feedback!

I applied the tweaks that Lou suggested and saw a marked improvement in each car. The Silvia is a bit more sure footed now, as is the RX8. The Soarer benefited in the form of higher cornering speeds and much much less corner exit oversteer. I need to learn to adjust in small increments more often, sometimes I go to extreme in the amount I move the slides. Thanks again Lou!

July Week 2 tunes are up now in the club garage. 1st post updated with my lap times for each car. I made minor tweaks to the RX8 and the Silvia for this one. The RX8 was slowest for me, and while the Silvia is fast it's still a handful. The Soarer needed very minimal work and outshined the others in my opinion. I will most likely be running this car again for week 2. Let me know what you guys think!

Solid updates, Eric! I tried your week 1 tunes on Indy last week and got the best time with the Soarer. With the new tune, I was able to beat that time. Easy to drive and like you said in your first post, you can push it in the corners. Then I beat that time with the Sylvia by almost half a second. That one is fast but a bit loose. I saw my ghost sliding around out of some of the corners but it never felt like I was battling for control while driving. I found the RX-8 to be the fastest on that long straight but it can't keep up through the corners. There's definitely potential there but it's outclassed by the other two. I'll do some more practice runs and decide between the Sylvia and Soarer.

Would you mind sending me the new tunes when you get a chance? And also the design for the Sylvia? (I should have just hit you up for all three last week. Razz ) Thanks!

July Series week 3 updates, Sedona Full Reverse. I updated the RX8 tune in the garage, the Silvia and Soarer I left alone from Indy.

RX8 (2:33.069) The car seems to be really loose on this track for some reason and is prone to drift at the worst times. The banked corners to flat track is tough to make clean. It's fast but hard to control for me. Still my least favorite.

Silvia (2:31.872) Still just a little loose here from time to time, but it's easily reigned back in. As with the RX8, the bank to flat transitions are tough. All around a fast car though, just takes a bit of throttle control and knowing the breaking points to keep it happy.

Soarer (2:30.568) After about 3 to 4 laps this thing comes alive! Handles great and can be pushed pretty hard. The turbo makes great power and there's plenty of space to use it here. The transitions are still a challenge, but not as tough to handle with this one. Once again, my hands down favorite Very Happy
