So... I've been gathering up a bunch of tuning information and decided to build a simple base tuning tool and guide...

With that said, I need some testers... you can grab the file at the link below, and you may even be able to use it on the web....

Let me know what you think....

Cheers!

I will try it out. I have some cars that I can't seem to hit the sweet spot with, so maybe it will help me out Very Happy

Thanks for sharing Lou! Timely as well, I still haven't found a car/tune I'm happy with for this month. Will give it a try.

Just remember.... What I've put together is a hybrid Calc, tuning tool and guide.... Please consider this in the Alpha stages.... With everyone's feedback, I will work on a beta....

Here are a few things to remember:
1 - The tune is a BALANCED tune. Meaning the Springs, Rebound and bump are balanced for the car's weight distribution. You will need to adjust it through testing. I will be adding the ability to manually alter the balance with the next build, as well as altering the F/R balance with the aero for bump and rebound (currently it's based on the non-adjusted game listed % balance).

2 - Use the VVV Worm Tuning guide on the FM4 forums for reference. http://forums.forzamotorsport.net/forums/thread/4905856.aspx

3 - I am not perfect and neither is this tool. There isn't a tool out there that will spit out a "perfect" tune. It's up to you to dial it in to your preference....

I look forward to the feedback and THANKS guys!

So... I've used it a few times and it needs some work.... I'd still like some others to test, but I need to work on the Rebound/Bump balance to match the downforce modified weight distribution...

So.... I'm going to continue to develop this over time, but I'm knocking it down the priority tree... since the Slave Munky tuner is pretty good, and FH is dropping in 4 days, I've got to re-prioritize my time. I still welcome the feedback though! Very Happy

Completely forgot about this.

But is this the thread where we air our sense of entitlement with this doc?
