Hi, I am looking for good PC2 tuning tutorials, as I am completely oblivious as how to tune a (race)car. Any tips, tricks, tutorials or must see vids anyone can point me too? Thanks!

Same here. There are plenty for PC1, but I'm sure things have changed. I'm sure they'll start showing up eventually.

As someone that is new to all this as well I'd recommend first going to the differential thread in the setup forum and reading that. If you are running a car with a LSD (and if you are doing any of the modern stuff you probably are) getting that right seems to help a whole lot (least to me). It can help compensate for power oversteer and, to some degree, understeer. If you want to dive into everything else I'd recommend "Dyr_gl PSN" on youtube. The stuff is for Project Cars 1 but a good deal seems to still apply and it gives at least a decent overview of what everything does, so it is a good starting point.

It's not so much about what each adjustments do. What anti-roll bars and springs does is pretty much same and it's also described in the game. But what I'm clueless about is what is the "Sweet Spot" so to speak for each car class. For example, what RPM should you upshift in Formula C? What's ideal tire and brake temp for each compound?

Thanks!! Damn, I wish I payed better attention at school when having maths and calculus. This sim is so deep you need to be a bloody engineer to figure it all out, and yes, that is a compliment. This game is my everest!!!

I am probably spoiled by Testdrive, Outrun and Pitstop 2....those were the days...my commodore 64 wasnt even powerfull enough to simulate a single spring, let alone a whole car! ;)
