Hi all,

Been scrolling true the threads, and I see allot of problems with setting up a FA car. At thirst I thought, nah, not gonna share. But then again, why not?! I will be posting me setups here, when I have one ready again. Takes allot of time to create a good setup.

Follow my youtube channel as well. I will be posting vids of how things work, driving lines, breaking points, etc. And of course, World Records.

Add me on the PS4 if you wanna join my practice lobby's that I host every day. And follow my Twitch stream, to see me driving, and also there you can shoot questions at me. No problem!

Just uploaded a couple of setups on to my youtube channel. Check it out!

Here's the first one. This one is for Monza. I did 1:20:1 with it. Didn't attack the WR yet, because there's still a bit work on the setup, like tyre pressure.

Some impressive times! And thank you for the efforts.

But..... The settings from the screens you have posted are simple enough, but there are, I think, loads more settings than that. Unless my memory is playing me up:) Or is that all setup settings in one screen? Just never seen them like that maybe.

Well done on the record times. I'm surprised at how tight your springs are for Monza. I might try the same.

I guess your correct. The only thing missing is the grearbox. Other options I keep standard. And the gearbox shouldn't be to hard. Just don't make first and second gear to short, because you will spin off! ;)

Come on give up all your secrets:) I spin off on standard tune, lol. And I'm sure you'll still be 2 or 3 seconds quicker than me anyway. I was delighted to get into the 1:25s last couple of days and I only race at Monza and Le mans, lol.

You've seriously done a 1:20 with this? I can barely get round a lap, if I breathe in the wrong place it spins:) I sort of don't see how it can't with some of the settings, but I'm clearly never going to be a time trial record beater, lol.

Think I'll go back to what I had and at least have some fun with it. Have to watch some of your vids and see how you do it though. I doubt I could do a 1:40 with this setup.

Lol! Yeah, I did 1:20:1 with it. But it isn't like putting a setup on a car and you go fast. That would be to easy. Practice makes perfect.

I'm trying to improve my laptime on SPA (my obsession), I feel faster with your setup but I spin out everytime I push hard on the accelerator in the 2nd gear during a turn. I can't fix this and I don't know how.

Try making 2nd gear a click or 2 longer. Otherwise just go easy with it. I prefer a short 2nd for the final chicane and hairpin and everywhere else use 3rd

It's wat HKraft says. Perhaps make "second" a click or two longer, or be a bit more gentle with the throttle. Second chicane at Monza I always take in third gear.

I did ra. Was faster with one of your tunes with higher down force then your ra tune. Also I can't seem to match up the braking. R u running no anti lock or anti lock. Also do u use tcz? The tune feels great, and I ran a 1:41 at ra, but i'm 5 seconds behind. Could conceivably drop maybe 2 seconds after watching some of the entry speeds you attack some of the corners, but no way i'm dropping 5 seconds off my time.

I'm driving with all assists off, and the Thrustmaster t300. Think there is the difference in "feel". Great the setups help you improve your laptimes. Please subscribe to my Youtube channel: Jack van Hees

Great to hear TheLethalDose. I'm thinking that to. In practice I did 1:20:1. If your lap is perfect, I guess 1:19:5.

I'm using the 458 spider so no ffb. A little worried about trying no anti lock brakes since there is no brake pedal feel, and no traction control, but I got to running that way in forza 2 and 3 with the MS ffb. Regular brakes can stop you faster in a shorter distance from what I understand, but of course you can lock them up to, so I'll have to try and figure that out. Thanks for sharing the tunes. Like people keep posting all over the message boards, a good tune isn't going to make you hella fast, you gotta practice, practice, practice, but at least it makes the car usually more stable and fun to drive.

Your welcome! Just keep practicing without assist. In the end you will getbthe feeling for it. Practice makes perfect. I've seen people post fast laps here, even records, but no setups. A shame! This thread is for sharing setups. Some say I must put my laptimes with the setups in a post. But I see people only showboating. Sad! I don't mind sharing, because in the end it's great wen everybody can go fast. Lap record come after a good setup. Follow my youtube channel. I'm working on Monaco now. Load it up after I'm done.

Youtube: Jack van HeesAhh not showboating im not the fastest out there someone will always be quicker than me. I just posted that lap picture as a refrence, and the only picture ive seen of your times is from practice sessions not TT, which TT seems to be slower so thats why I asked about posting your lap times in TT for use as a refrence with the tunes to know what it is capable of doing is all.

Your tunes are good setups I recomend them to anyone that wants to have a fast pace.

Good work Jack about time another tuner started posting setups, I tried your Monza setup well of what I could minus the rest of stuff unseen, the setup is fairly rigid and using kers with drs on after the first chicane at the corner is definitely a no go zone lol Im still yet to beat my PB tho Ill see what I can do

That doesn't matter to me. I'm still getting a feel,with the tracks, because there different then in other SIM's. As long as people are beeing real about how they done a lap, It's fine with me. If someone takes your setup, drives a record, and then says it was his own setup.. That would be s*cking big time. I just like it when people become quicker. And I enjoy it when that happens with a setup wich I made.

You see its already happened I shared my setup I think was 2nd day in, I could have just kept my setup and sat at the top waiting for someone to show some interest and get me off the perch.
Now its only a new game, people will become bored if they cant get in the top whatever.
I shared my setup to flood the leaderboards get the community involved and race, not so much get confused and frustrated in the tuning aspects but get the tune lay down some laps straight away. Multivitz you should know by now that there is no #1 time which is unbeatable which was set at the beginning of a game, tuning setups evolve, players get use to the car and tracks and naturally get faster and faster. Whatever tunes are out available right now will not be the bees knees in a few months time. I agree with Jack I too find satisfaction watching someone get faster with your tune/setup it feels accomplishing

I totally agree on this. Every time can be broken, for sure. I host practice lobby's every evening and stream it on Twitch. People ask if they may join, and sure they can, as long there's respect. I let them go to my youtube channel, look for the setup they need for that track, and let them drive. It's awesome too see people get better every lap. Yesterday MadMax went on Monza from high 30's too 26, and I think he ended in 24's. Just in a couple of hours. That kind of thing makes me happy.

I used to have whipper snappers race/hot lap my setups. After a week of coaching through the spectating option and occasional demonstration by yours truly, they would go up from top 100 to top 10! Their reaction speed and dedication was key. My setups allowed them to hang through a lap. The fms physics engine was incomplete and glitch tunes ruled the top places. I'm loving this game shame about all the button pressing, I hope my suggestion on page 39 gets liked. I drove the formula in career, and it is great fun, loads of speed but one mistake and BOOM your lead has gone lol

Yeah the players improve, setup sharing and testing is way limiting for development. My tuning skills went through change at the end of forza4 , it happens like doctor who lol every game I've been searching for realism this game offers.
Maybe some of the cars have limited adjustment, who cares it just levels the playing field more. I would like fully adjustable rose linked suspension, with fabrication options, but that is going too far. The games good lets all make it better like SMS want us to do now:)

Throwing the car down the road is amazing! Learning the lines your setup likes and having to deal with draft n tyre temps is where you want to concentrate, you'll find with better performance in the game the cars will start to show their thermal flaws at the same time putting a clean lap together will be childs play. You know it makes sense rodders!

Well done on the record times. I'm surprised at how tight your springs are for Monza. I might try the same.

EDIT: NVI0U5 has competition I see ;)

The diffs easy to setup on them lol but it effects axle lift!
I could get close to cloning a setup from telemetry in fms3!!! At least I could see the direction a tuner had gone in. Takes a replay from a cold start!
I think that was a wise desision by the developer to release this game as is and let the community decide on things. Get in there and start voting NOW. Thats for the ones who have volume trouble:rolleyes:

Been using Jacks setups for a while now.

Can say that racing with him and a couple of other people that join the practice sessions really helps you to push harder and learn the tracks better.

He's able to show you what's possible and even talk about how you might be able to achieve it. For example if you having trouble on a certain area on a track, he doesn't mind explaining how he would approach that section.

The Youtube vids with setup are much appreciated for people like myself with limited time to find a decent balance!

Cool guy that likes to help out where possible for people that are serious about going faster.

I'm going to look at 1 of Jacks setups today. If l can get improvement for it I'll post it. I'm using a pad so adjusting the steering ratio maybe necessary for some. Or setups won't be usable between wheel n pad. I have high hopes with this game!

It's gonna work with a pad, no problem. Allot of people got quicker with the setups. Let me know! Thanks MULTIVITZ

The pit lanes soo long, can we put the garage up the end more:rolleyes:
The front wing keeps hitting the ground eeer!!
There was nownt wrong wid setup!!
Lets start over, is someone getting take out lol
Only joking?

Starting to just change 1 thing at a time now, revising diff (lowering) to make turning in more buff!
Nearly getting through becketts flat:cool:(and thats in chase cam!!)
Getting slick collapse after rear spring increase, but looking good.
Started cockpit view now. Nice quick directional change was kept after I sped up the steering ratio.
Now in the car I can feel the skips n bumps alot better when pushing hard. Yeah baby!

I understand what your saying, it is a vital experience in learning this type of road craft.
More than you appreciate at this moment in time. Just let a little air out the front and a bit more out the rear, set up the karts steering ratio to match its turn in moment that you feel is ok and do the super karts championship.
It will learn you, trust me, you won't get in another car and feel the same as you do now!
Stick it on easy and put the laps down, you won't regret it.

Re: to the back wheels comming out.(a lesson in short shifting)
The engine has no flywheel as such and gains torque and revs quickly, agreed?
Torque is resposable for a vehicles acceleration from a set speed and is the only value of force needed when calculating a tracktive curve, agreed?
So if you'll notice the FA produces about 230lbft odd from very low down, the torque band is very wide. So wide infact it spans 3 gears, this makes it easier to drive. When I said change up when exiting, I thought you'd understand, higher revs activates the diff easier and locks the wheels. Try driving mine in 1 or 2 gears higher than you like and look at your speedo when you exit near the kerb!

If you listen you might learn, but doing if far more effective.
Time is precious on games like this, thats why I don't beat around the bush.
Making setups will save this game by making it accessible to people who want to enjoy the cars and tracks. Having a slow way will hamper people enjoyment imho

Im sure your setup is magic and people will like driving it. But have you shown them how to do it themselves mr pro?

On Forza I would offer 1 to 1 tuning in party chat. They chose the car and the track!
It does take several hours, and seeing the car come together is an amazing experience for some, especially if its their favourite car.

Why do you think im in here? This is the 'setup you must have thread' isn't it, a place for people to come and get better with the FA, what a pair of old women I ask ya.
No one told me it was the 'these are my setups and look at my replays' thread, I might start one called 'look at my setups I haven't got a clue' thread, but that would be wrong and misleading.
You're a shining example of the type of motivational cripples this community needs to wake up.

1.14 aint particularly fast at monaco tho. Best i got there was 1.10.9 & there is even video somewhere at this forum of 1.11.1 lap i recorded while driving. After taking a look to your setups, you seem to make them really safe/understeery, which is not really the fastest way for this car. Example aero levels ive used mostly are around 10-12 for front, 6-7 at rear.

For monaco used 12/9 aero, softer front arb, stiffer rear arb, softer springs, shorter gearing, more rake by lowering front ride height to help turn in, differential 9/25/60 (top to bottom) and bit less negative camber from both front & rear..

E: Here is the monaco recording, maybe you get some tips from it.

I was giving an answer too the question about going faster with that setup, that's all. Why did I do lap lap records with some of my setups then? If the setups aren't that good. Next too that I'm sharing. I don't see much people do that here! Al bl bla, and scared of people beating them with there own setups. Enough people who are happy with my setups. How long are you driving PCars? From 2011? I just started a few weeks ago.. So I still got too learn about the car. And instandly started sharing, because allot of people have problems with setting up the car. And understeer/oversteer could be lead back too how your driving style is. Look at Alonso, wat do his cars do? Then look at Raikkonen. And thanks for the tip! Will keep it in mind.

Very ontopic: When are the updates coming for all the buggs in the game? It really s*cks, like the game crashing, forcefeedback doing wat it wants, and much more. It's really a shame for such a good game, that there are so many buggs still in it.

Heh, defensive much? No need, my intention wasnt to downplay your efforts, im sure lots of guys are very happy that you share your setups. I just wanted to share some info that in future you might make your sets even better, sure more understeery setup is likely better for majority as its easier to drive, but the fact is that this car is a lot faster with setups more towards oversteer.

There is few PC FA WR ( Spa & silverstone atleast ) laps in my channel if you want to take a look, maybe you find some usefull from those.

Q&A right now on Twitch: http://www.twitch.tv/jackvanhees Still one hour left, so tune in!
Hey Jack missed that one,When will be your next session?
Maybe a stupid question, driving my ass yesterday off made another 1.25 low on imola
If i make a perfect lap i can pull of another sec/1.5 off, do you use any kers/drs systems in time trial?

Or is it just a matter of getting back in the seat and work for it :)

Shame you missed it. Will be doing Q&A's next week again. I do 19:5's with the Imola setup, so I guess there's some room too work in. Take a good look at your driving lines in the first sector till the chicane. You can win/loose allot of time on there. Personally I always take the curbs full with two wheel in the first sector. DRS and KERS I always use. It makes allot of difference in a lap. Hope too see you soon in a new Q&A mate.

Posted in xbox forum and nobody replied. Any idea Jack how to activate DRS or KERS on the 458 spider wheel, or can you self map it to a button using the controller setup, or will that throw off the wheel settings. Thanks for the tunes. They are a blast to drive, and I can handle them no assists now, so that is cool.

thksIn TT using kers drs is a must, but its also very technical at Imola, and about momentum getting the best drive out of turns for higher speeds on straights. And a few place you may think carying more speed might be quicker but its not especially in the first sector.

It's a track you can learn a lot at and good practice for trail braking practice to get the car to pivot in turns. With enough practice mid 1:17's can be done here.

I think that too Joni. But on my behalf I'm still learning the tracks (know them all, but on PCars it's differen't again), and that's why my setups will get better. things like the bugg with force feedback doesn't help either.

With DRS and KERS your gonna win allot of time. Just take a good look were you gonna use KERS, because that can make a difference too. Working on Silverstone tune now. Hard one too get correct! But I've taken some advice of Joni, so perhaps it will help the setup. Hoping for it. Keep it up all. This is getting too be a great thread (not talking about myself). ;)

I dont think 1.16 is possible without some massive cutting. Atm it might be as you can basicly straightline (run completely over the kerbing & run offs) which gains a lot of time, but once track limits is fixed soon cant see that happening. 1.17 mid/high tho should be rather easily possible by staying within track limits.

Jack, why is it that the ride height in your tunes is so high? One of the first things I always do is drop the ride height as low as I can get it without scraping.

I mostly have ita bit higher, because of the rest of the setup. Doesn't always work in my setups. Mostly it disturbs the balans. And of course because of the fuel load you carry in a race. When the car bottoms out, and hit the ground, there's no more grip. Perhaps I should setup for just doing quick laps. Let me try it.

I've always been under the impression that lower ride height = faster, so it's optimal to get ride height as low as possible without scraping. Given the track, some scraping is bound to happen (Donnington is one of the worst offenders for this in PCars that I've found so far...that track is so bumpy), but as long as you're not bottoming way out and losing grip, my experience has been that it's fine. As an example, I found I had to raise my ride height on Spa in Formula B because I was bottoming out through Eau Rouge and it resulted in me spinning out. Most other tracks, if I get some scraping, but don't bottom out completely, I usually leave it as low as it goes.

But its helping a lot of people out for sure and its good what your doing.

I tried sharing setups back in 2010 and only 2 guys could run my setups and match my times, and everyone else called BS, cuz they figured it would make them instantly #1 Theres no magical setup unless the setup menu is broken that will make you #1

When you get up to the maximum a car can run it starts getting into driver style and what enhances the certain drivers weak points, and maximizes there strong points.

But a very good base is great starting point to drive at a quick pace, and thats what they need to realize what your giving them at no cost!

Jack, question for you on your setups. I just hit Formula A and have been struggling get my setup the way I like it. The biggest problem I've had is keeping the tires up to temp. I was beginning to think I might have been experiencing some glitch because my tires never stayed up to temp over the course of a race so I grabbed your Hockenheim tune and gave it a shot to see if that fixed the issue. While I like the tune, I still had trouble keeping the temps up. I eventually solved it by lowering tire pressures and driving more aggressively, but I found that I could never keep the tire temps up with your stock pressure of 145. After a few laps off the tire warmers, the temp just faded away and by the end of a 20 lap race, I'd have all 4 tires blue. I eventually got things to work with the front left being closer to 130 and the rest being in the 120s. Do you have any problems keeping your tires in the green with your setups?

Hi there. Glad you like the setups. I really don't have problems with the temp. in the setups. Do you use controller, or a wheel? I'm always agressive in my driving style, and no assists on. Don't know if you drive with or without assists.

Apoth
04-06-2015, 15:15
I'm driving no assists with a wheel. Part of it, as I said, was my driving style. I couldn't push as hard in Formula B where I was playing previously so that style carried over to Formula A. Once I realized I could turn in later while going faster, it seemed to help.

*EDIT - I just went and looked at some of your videos to check out your driving style a little and noticed you have some of the issues I had in a couple of those videos. Check out this video at Brands Hatch (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoVNLbanBac) and this video at BRNO (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vd7PoBECYGk). Your front left tire is starting to flicker to blue. This was how the issue always started with me. It would start to flicker blue as it approached the "cold" level then eventually hit solid blue as the race went on. You're obviously setting WR times so, it's not affecting you too much, but I wonder if you might be able to eek out some more time by playing with your pressures and keeping the temps a little higher.

I will look into it. Like I said, never have problems with the temp. Perhaps as you see, and show in my vid a flicker, but not more then that, otherwise I wouldn't be quick. I will digg deeper in the settings to see if I can get the temp. a bit higher. Thanks for the advice! It's a good thing that people like yourself think about the setups, and how to get them better.

I know mate, but the wheel,will last for at least 3-4 years. I still have my Logitch G27. Have that four about 5 years, and still like new. Never needed a fix, or whatever. Think the Thrustmaster is that solid too. Did over more then 200 hours now, and It's still perfect. People complain about the pedals, that it has bad "feeling". Don't see the problem. Perfect set, but that's my thought over the set. Willow Springs is on my channel Disagio. https://youtu.be/Hr7b8U7tFJw

Really a great setup. Perfect balance in the car. No tricky rear end while braking full pull for the chicanes. I did a 1:10:4 without pushing, because I just had the setup like I want it. Think It's on WR level this setup. Give it a shot people!

Went on zolder track. With standard settings I was getting around 1:25 but when I put yours in it was 1:18. Did do 1:17 but bloody lap was invaild from previous lap. Not quite your time but for me it was pretty good. I know I can go quicker. Its just trusting the car not spin out.

Specially the first sector is technical. If you get the first two corners wrong, you can forget a quick laptime. The Zolder track needs allot of laps before your gonna be quick on it. If you never have been driving it, it's gonna take you at least 25 laps too get a good feel for the track. And finding ritm is very hard on this stop, and go track. I know the track in real life, driven races on it.

I do like the track. I like zhuhai one as well. My brother hates it. Im Not a fan of nordschleife track though.

I have a quick question - how do you know when you have enough overall downforce?

Here comes Don ;) , that's a feel in combination of wat the record is. Something you will feel in your system. Eventually your gonna feel,when the car is at his max at certain points. I'm glad it's helping people, gives me so mjch pleasure. The setups, the vids.. You all really let me feel good guys. Need that. Thanks!

Just gave the Silverstone tune a go. I'm not really a Formula A driver but I have done many laps here with another tune so gave it a go. Well my previous time was a 1:34.7ish and my current best is now 1:33.1xx (this is without using KERS or DRS). I think that says it all lol. It was much more nimble, but also more stable. A hell of a lot better on the throttle (I could go full throttle through from turn 9 through club). I could push the car a lot harder without having to worry about it snapping on me, which made the world of difference.

I made a couple of tweaks for the time trial. Closed off the brake vent because I could barely heat the brakes as it was. Also lowered the tyre pressures at the front in because they were getting up to 260C but it didn't really help much. Lowered the rear pressures down to 1.28 or thereabouts trying to get them up to 245C but only reached 240C. Tyre temperatures seem to really matter. When I saw the brake balance of 65% I thought that might be too far forward but the brakes feel great. Noticeably shorter stopping distances and no fear of a snap spin at all.

Best of all the car was FUN to drive! I could see myself getting through a race without an off, which was out of the question before. Awesome tune :onthego: Thank you!!!!

Great too hear! Tyrepressure is a problem for most of the people who use my sets. Wat you said, just lower them, but not too much. Personally I'm not thrilled with the Silverstone setup. Think I'm gonna rebuild that one this week, and upload it as a 2.0. Same I'm doing with the Spa setup, right now. Gonna upload that one tonight. Gonna be Spa 2.0 with perfect balance. Keep on racing, and thanks! Please subscribe if you didn't too my channel bro! ;)

Loving the setups. On zhuhai track I've got my time down from 1:18 down to 1:15. Loading ghost car has helped. On zolder its down to 1:14 which considering it was in the 1:20's before its pretty good for me at least. I'm just enjoying the challenge which is what its all about isn't it. I do have traction and stabilty control on, tried it without and was all over the place. My aim to get on first page on leaderboard. That would be great for me. Thanks for giving me that chance because without your setups there is no way I'd have that chance.

Thank you Matt! I'm a sensitive/emontional person, so these words mean allot too me. And that's why I share my setups. It makes me really happy, that I'm helping people have fun with Project Cars, and get quicker too. Just keep the practice up Matt, and you will gain more speed. I'm "working" with allot of people in my online lobby's at the evenings, too help them improve. And they improve quite fast. It's so much fun too see people get faster every evening. Too bad you are on a different platform. Driving lines, braking points, apex moments are really important too. I'm trying too upload some online vids, so people can see wat my lines and breaking point are. But It's allot of work. And tuning, helping, and uploading my own laps. Just doing my best too have people get fun out of Project Cars. Thanks again Matt!

Yes, I've already done that! I'll stay tuned for the new setups and 2.0 versions!

Just tried your Imola setup still on Hockenheim GP and could reduce 0.500 - the car is more stable at the corner exit, specially for the low-speed turns.

I know that pal! I was not accusing you, I just saw that you changed the tire pressure value that were constantly setted on 1,50 in your previous videous.
Just wanted to know if you're studying your new setups with this constant tire pressure or it was just a temporary change for that particular track.
I've always been grateful and I'll continue to do so :)

Great news. Don't think my time on that was great, 1:35 I think. My brother did 1:25:250 without even trying. Gonna beat that if it takes all year.

After 6 laps got time down to 1:27. Still improving as well. Not been on the track that much so need to practice. And now I've beaten it after 12 laps. 1:25:139. Have since gone even quicker but it was invalid.

Fantastic. Love that track. Isn't it one of the fictional ones? Lap times have come down for me. Started off 1:24 until I got used to it. Down to 1:16:119 now. Used a ghost car that preferred to cut most of the corners. Beat it though.
