Hi, if there is a setup you would like put your request in here, I have mostly GT3s and GT4s at Silverstone National and Nurburgring Sprint but some of the setups are usable at other tracks. I have GT3s at Dubai National, Club.

If anyone has any advice about tyres overheating it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, sorry about the tires overheating, the hard tires don't usually give me a problem but I haven't run long Beach(they work at Dubai, ambient 108).
Sorry, no good tuned setups.

No bother. How about the Audi R8 LMS for a start, just started tuning it and it's almost as fast as 488 in 1/10 the time. You loosen and stabilize the same way as SMS, camber and LSD. You need to do your own brake bias and pressure probably.

Hey SGETI, I am still experimenting with the Geared/Clutch LSD. Might not be the best way but I am trying to learn. Notice I am using higher preload like Jussi did for the LMS but what I am doing is reducing the number of clutch plates trying to get more control in tighter corners back. It's mostly do to the way I drive so you can add back clutch plates and reduce preload for a normal LSD but try this one first.:)

Yes, how do you like the LMS? I have a new ATS V that I ran a 54.711 with. A new NSX at 54.761. Bentley at 54.856. 911 at 54.700. 650S at 54.458. Z4 at 54.742. Pick one. Hard Rock has a scary fast Merc SLS at 54.258.

How are the console people doing with their lap times? I know it's a pain because their Leaderboards are crippled but do you guys have any idea if we are competitive with our PC efforts?

IceShaft
20-10-2017, 22:11
I have tried all the setups you posted here and the first thing I clearly noticed is that the cars are much more stable and I'm able to push them like never before!
I tried them on the Le Mans Bugatti circuit and about the lap times I don't think you can use me as a benchmark since I'm not a leaderboard fast enough driver but hopefully with this thread more people will try the setups and give you more feedback.
I'll do my part with testing though, as much as my skills allow.

About the new setups I would love to try all of them if you can post them here, it's a shame that there's no easier way to share your stuff with us.

There should be a place on this forum where we could all share the setups outside the game since the leaderboards simply don't work on this matter (sharing setups) on the consoles.
http://projectcarssetups.eu was a great project that helped me a lot on PC1 but I've heard that it's not going to be updated for PC2 :(
That's why I have to thank you and the other guys for all the efforts you're making with the setups, big ups!

Our leaderboards are crippled, like how you put that. Would be so nice to pick a car and track and see only the results you requested. maybe someday.

Here is my time for the Cayman GT4. 58.761. Fastest for Cayman on that track.

This weekend I will be trying out some tunes. Don't be shy, post away and in time many will try them . Thanks again.

Hi guys, here are some preliminary results of our testing at Silverstone National. I can't drive default setups, I just can't, not going to happen. I think this is the way it is for most of the people as well. What happens when someone who can really drive runs default? This, cpcdem has his top 5 cars within 0.101 seconds. 1st BMW M6 0:54.118, 2nd McLaren 650S 0:54.139, 3rd tie Audi R8 LMS and Ferrari 488 0:54.140, 4th Mercedes SLS 0:54.219. Obviously this is good balance for the default setups at the top of the GT3 class at this track. I can only get close to his times by tuning. Some of the other defaults are problematic(Aston Martin Vantage and Bentley), I can beat these default times by tuning but the majority are really good clustered around 54.4 to 54.8. Still the GT3 class of PC2 using the default setups is much better balanced than say your typical Formula 1 grid, at least at this track. The balance is going to change once we get into the tuning because some of the cars are just a lot easier to tune than others, we don't have tuned information yet, just getting started.

Hi Blinkngone. I notice your setups just list car but not the track it was tuned on or for. Doesn't a car tune generally differ in its handling and capability from track to track depending on the nature of the track? Eg: Short or long, one with many curves and one with more straights etc? Wouldn't it be more helpful to also list the track in or for which the tune was done?

davidt33
22-10-2017, 00:01
BTW, could you do one for the Renault Clio Cup @ Ruapuna Park?
I have a race on Monday for the above and desperately need a tune. If you could find the time to do and post it by tomorrow Sunday 22 October earliest that would be well cool and appreciated.
Would appreciate if anyone else has a tune to share for above as well. Cheers.

Hi David yes it is track specific, we are in Silverstone National testing so these are the only setups we have for the GT3S at the moment. The setups also work at Dubai National, I ran the Renault RS01 there, all you need to do is add 15 PSI to the left side tires and10 to the right rear and you can run there. Front right is ok. Also Snetterton 100, all you need to do is swap pressures from right to left because it is a counter(anti)clockwise track. There are other tracks, you can run Brands Hatch Indy and do ok but you will need to adjust to move up the Leaderboard.

Blinkngone, you're doing a great job and tremendous service posting these setups, especially since there's a shortage of setups available currently otherwise. Cheers bro.
If I can make a suggestion. Could you include an index listing on post #1 of the cars including links to where they are posted in the thread since I can see the thread growing. It will make it much easier to find the tunes for prospective searchers without having to browse through all the pages to find a tune they may be looking for at any time. The listing/index preferably would be by car in alphabetical order thus making it again easier to find and if there's an associated track in or for which the tune was done that would be great to include also (eg: Car name, Track).
Keep up the good work bro.

Edminton, you have to manually enter all differences between your settings and the one I posted for you, it doesn't matter which default set up you start with. I don't know why he is 16 seconds faster than you. Are you any better using his set up?

The 99 Toyota has a higher top speed which should be better for Le Mans.

Thank you for the update. Those Camber numbers seem to be on the high side. I remember you did many hours of testing regarding camber in PC1 and I do not remember any settings then that were even close to these numbers. Are these camber numbers unique to TT ? Would you change the camber numbers for a 20 - 30 min race?

Yes SGETI the camber numbers are really high for this track compared to PC1. SMS says that the tire model from PC1 was wrong and too much grip(unrealistic) was provided. With the new improved more realistic tire model more camber is needed to get the necessary grip to obtain quick lap times now. Yes you will need to lower camber for extended laps unless your ambient track temperature is lower so you need to test. Lower temps should help but lowering camber will as well.

The bentley feels much better and easier to drive now using your setup so thank you for that.
Its in the long fast corners at the and of the le man circuit i lose time and the Al is much faster.

Maybe it has something to do with the steering lock or i have to learn how to drive the car through?

And this is exactly the same problem i have with the toyota gt one,

Hope you have a nice setup for this car also.

Iceshaft that's great. Sorry about the ghost problems, you are right that really helps. Drizzit in our group is new and he is right after me and I think his having ghosts has helped him. Did you try adjusting the brake bias and pressure. These are things that you need to do, also your main brake sensitivity setting doesn't need to be any higher than 30.
Try this car, Ford GT GTE. Something different. Any particular GT3 you would like?

It's not about them being different just that PC and consoles can't share setups in game with the Time trials so pictures or text of the setups are needed instead ;)

And as blinkngone said above having a ghost that's slightly quicker then me has helped alot for me but if that's not possible even your own ghost can help as you see instantly where you gain or loose time instead of having to wait for the split times.

Hi RomKnight, the problem is on consoles, they are platform limited to Leaderboard Time Trials that are much less than available on PC, unless the car you are looking for is in the top times when you are looking for a setup/ghost of a slower car it is difficult to find. Console users with wheels have the same problem.

Hi Edminton, Blaulicht's setup is good I assume. Don't know about the steering lock but better driving through practice is always a good thing. Don't feel bad about being slower than him, most people are.

Hi guys, time to move on from Silverstone National for us. We have some loose setups by the aliens available on some cars and some improved stable setups on others here but the Ferrari just has too much for the rest of the cars. The remaining field is quite well balanced and at TT fuel levels which have no impact on performance the Z4 is spectacular loose.

Thanks in advance.

blinkngone
27-10-2017, 10:26
Hi zagatoblade, only tuned setups for the Vulcan are using a wheel. I am also attaching a quote from Jussi in case you didn't see it. "The car has a pretty harsh engine braking behavior, just wait calmly while braking and shift down at low revs and it'll settle.

For power oversteer you can also try loosening up the acceleration lock on the differential (increase power ramp angle), and trying different damper settings at the rear. Something like 8200 slow bump and 650 for bump transition could work.

Also compared to the P1 GTR the Aston has a ton more downforce, probably even more than it really needs. Experimenting with the DF settings can be rewarding as well."

No, and it's kind of depressing. If you look at Spa there are only 2 Ferrari GTE's faster than the 488 GT3's and the with the exception of 1 outlier C7R, the M6 and Ford GT are all slower than 488 GT3 top times. Same at Monza, something is broken in this game or all the GTE drivers(me as well) suck. Maybe most of us haven't spent time with the GTE's, true enough I only started today because you asked, but I would have thought the GTE's were easily faster. Not 1 car by 5 tenths. At Laguna Seca the Ferrari GTE's are SLOWER than the 488 GT3's. Maybe the GTE's are USA spec cars and the GT3's are European spec cars? Anyway it is easier for an average driver to go much faster with the GTE's so maybe that's what they are, GT3's with training wheels for us.:cool:
Anyway, here is the C7R I am working on, let me know what you think about it being easier to go fast.

Yeah, I don't get it, At Zuhai(sea level) there were only 2 AMG's run and the quicker is better than most of the Ferrari GTE's, you can look it up on the link I sent you. No Ford GTE's run really. I hope it just because we don't know how to run the GTE's yet. I don't have a secret, I was just surprised because if you look up the runs on TT it is way off the mark and mine was right in the mix. Maybe when I get them all set up better it will be behind again. I'll give you the setups as usual. Check out the GTE's at Road America, Xiamoto is pretty much an alien, look at his run with the Ford and Ferrari. It's one track where the GTE's are actually ahead of the 488 GT3 with him driving all 3 so that is possibly the good news, the bad news he is about 1 second quicker with the Ferrari GTE over the Ford so here we go again.

Your C7R setup is simply... incredible! :O

The car is perfect, stable and fast! I don’t know how’s it possible but I’m more than 1.5 seconds faster than with the Ford GT with your setup as well (I tested them at Zhuhai)!
I did 1.33.278 or something like that (I don’t honestly know how good\bad is that), while with the Ford I couldn’t go below 1.35.
I also tried the 488 and the M6 with the default loose setup and I was a bit slower than the Ford but I felt that they could be improved greatly, especially the Ferrari.

It’s probably the best feeling I had with a car so far in the game, it has a fantastic grip and I can run it without worrying about losing control so I can focus on pushing and be always very consistent.

Do you think you found out or changed something that could be added to your old Ford GT setup as well?

What, I am doing what Jussi said to do, to reduce the rear transition and rear slow bump to help reduce snap oversteer, like he said for the Vulcan, hence "Vulcanization".:D Not universal but it worked on the AM GTE and Vulcan, C7R, I can't remember if I did it on the GT.

Qoute fromJussi on the Vulcan. Some cars are already near the minimum number he mentioned and others are way higher so you have to experiment, like 1 or 2 clicks, things like that.

"The car has a pretty harsh engine braking behavior, just wait calmly while braking and shift down at low revs and it'll settle.

For power oversteer you can also try loosening up the acceleration lock on the differential (increase power ramp angle), and trying different damper settings at the rear. Something like 8200 slow bump and 650 for bump transition could work.

Blinkngone,
You are changing lives here.... thanks for all your time and efforts.

But I'm wondering.....
- do you have a basic recipe or method you use in your process (that you'd be willing to share or give some advice to others?).
- do you just start with an SMS setup first? Loose? or Stable?
- are there certain key items you adjust first?
- is there a sort of order you go by in the tuning (ie. tires first, dampers second, diff last, or something like that??)
- are there some things that are a generic starting point? (like, lowering ride height almost to minimum? or maybe a standard diff setting? or a starting point for tire pressure? other things like that?)

I'd like to learn how to be more effective in the fine-tuning of setups. But I find that I'm wandering a bit aimlessly in the menus. Adjusting things that somehow make sense in my head, but then on the test track don't work as I assumed. So lots of hours of fiddling and driving without much result. It's just a mystery to me what type of process to use that can at least mean time invested (adjusting, testing, etc) will at least get my times going in the right direction.

Thanks again for all the good and appreciated work.

Hi Atak Kat, sorry I don't have recipe. Yes, I start with SMS loose first. I don't drive defaults well(I use 59% brake sensitivity and 100% acceleration, my legs are obstinate and recalcitrant especially right, I have trouble keeping it on the gas for mare than a couple of laps) so first I have to go and lower brake pressure and change bias(I usually start more front bias to keep from locking the rears until I can get going, then reduce it later as I get things sorted). I used to work o tire pressures but a lot of tracks with the new tire model they are always below their operating widow optimum so just run them mostly low as they go to start(exceptions are Dubai and Mojave and possibly Catalunya). Then I set up my Dynamic differential(Geared LSD on and Clutch LSD on), it isn't normal and I am trying to learn it, sorry if this messes up some of your set ups but you can always revert back to the Clutch only LSD or experiment with a Gear only LSD. I am sticking with mine because the game is new and I might learn something for later on. Then I do some laps and start looking at where I am having problems. If I am understeering I check the front ARB which most of the time is set up for understeer even in SMS Loose so an average person can drive(you can program a button to test this without going back to tuning) but mostly just lower this on the majority of cars. Then I go to camber adjustments. Sometimes you can increase rear camber to get control of oversteer on corner entry. You can also increase turn in be increasing front camber but you will find trying to balance these two somewhat tricky because at a certain point they will counteract each other. You can also adjust the power settings in your LSD but if all these fail I go to the lower rear slow bump and decreased rear bump transition. If through the camber and ARB adjustments I can't get the front end to rotate I start increasing front slow bump most of the time but if it still isn't what I want I will increase front bump transition(be careful here because Casey says the increases are greater than 1:1). I am just learning so things take me a while to work out but I try and do my setups so that they are not too loose. A really good driver can handle loose and in fact they are generally faster with loose but I don't have the car control they do and can't do adjustments while driving like the better ones(you know who you are:D). There is nothing wrong with being behind the great drivers in this game on the TT leaderboards, it's like that in real life as well. All we can do is try and reduce the gap by practicing and working a little harder on our setups. Just be patient with yourself, the game has only been out for about a month. I would stick to a few cars at a single track so you know the track very well and your tuning impacts will be more realized rather than trying to do both at once. Then add additional cars before moving your tuning experiments on to other tracks. The cars in this game require a lot more tweaking than PC1. One of the cool thing about this game and this community is that sometimes the 'Aliens" will drop in to help out by setting good benchmarks for you to try and achieve at the tracks that aren't used much yet. I think everything is better in this game to help people get better with the sharing of setups and working together more. Let's keep doing it. I'll help where I can.

Hi everyone, just wanted to ask for advise regarding setting up Audi R8 LMS. What would be your recommendation for all-round stable setup for this car? Still struggling with setups in pCars2, sure I could go with SMS Stable and live with it, but I'm sure there are some tweaks which can optimize it. What I hate most is the oversteering car, no matter under or off throttle, just don't have skills to control it. So stable rear and not twitchy front is what I'm looking for.
Also advise regarding the tire pressures. For example Catalunya - if I leave the defaults, tires will go around 115C (hard-slick), if I add more pressure (some suggested to go close to 32 PSI) the car is ice-skating.
Thank you in advance!

blinkngone
03-11-2017, 09:45
Hi Michal, It says your platform is PC, if it is have you tried looking into other drivers setups for Catalunya in Time Trial to get ideas? The first thing to look at in your own setup is in your settings, some recommend 30% brake sensitivity and 40% acceleration. Next try moving your brake bias forward and reducing your brake pressure(low 80's can help). Then, in your Clutch LSD increase the Bias ratio Power(90 is off so increasing this number from say 60 t0 75% will reduce oversteering from aggressive throttle application). Also in your clutch LSD you can reduce the Bias ratio Coast from say 45 to 35% which could help you off throttle. Increasing front camber can help plant the front tires for turn in with the trade off being increased tire wear. Increasing rear camber can help plant the rear tires on corner exit under throttle with the same trade off in tire wear. Balancing front and rear camber is tricky but eventually you will get used to doing it for your driving style.
TT, I would use Hideaki at this track.

Hi Michal, It says your platform is PC,...
Moved from PC to PS4 for pCars2 :)
Many thanks for tips, I was experimenting also with the suspension calculator to balance it around 220/190 springs, but without any significant outcome. Differential was way easier in pCars1, but if I understand the new one - using Clutch LSD with Preload, Power, Coast ramp is pretty much what was in pCars1. Default Preload of 350Nm is probably too much, comparing to setup you posted. I will give it try tonight, thanks again.
Not really bothered with TT, I need something for league races.
What is your guidance for tire pressures and temps? I will be mainly using Hard Slicks, but raising tire pressure doesn't seem to help with tire temps. On top, when saving race strategy - tires - pressures - I can't go above 2.

Hi FramedOne. At Red Bull Ring GP the 911 R is at 1:31.076, Ferrari at 1:27.697, M6 at 1:28.759, 650S at 1:29.246, Huracan at 1:30.217. Highest altitude track in the game. Pick any of these that interests you and I will post the setup.

Hi Michal, yes the LSD you have is for the Stable set up, 350 preload with Ramps at (90) which is off, you are not using any acceleration and coast with this LSD. Hideaki is using the Loose LSD. I did quickly check Hideaki's setup and it seemed ok to me, good luck. Yes the springs in game difficult to sense improvements with on some cars. You have to move to the dampers where they have added 4 transitions to start really tuning the suspension.

Tire temps are a pain currently for everyone.
http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?55303-Tire-temps-pcars-2

Well, now that I can see Hideaki is using a really odd LSD he has 3 of them on, but his geared LSD is at 1.0 which is off so turn it off. He has the Viscous LSD on and has it coupled to the Clutch LSD at 250 and Clutch preload at 100. It works for him.

Ok Edminton, try increasing the Power Ramp to 55 or possibly more until you get better control of apex/corner exits.

Does anybody have a good global setup for the Huracan ST?

I'd like to do some testing with that car.
How different is it from the Huracan GT3 setup-wise?

blinkngone
06-11-2017, 22:35
Hi IceShaft, It's almost as fast as the Huracan. I would say it is easier to setup and drive. I don't think many people have really spent much time running it so you will find it over a second slower at the longer tracks. I spent a little time on my Silverstone National Trofeo and am a couple of hundredths quicker than my Huracan which is quickest at the moment in the GT3's there. I think I could make it faster still with some work. 54.339 Trofeo and 54.376 Huracan. At Texas Speedway the Trofeo is 31.500 and the Huracan 32.540 because the Trofeo's suspension is more adjustable at this track. I suppose the reason it might not be popular is the brakes don't seem to be as good as the GT3's, you have to allow for more braking distance. If you like the RBR GP then the Trofeo is quicker than the Huracan, the Huracan is hurt at this track because of the altitude.

This may sound like a strange request, but what would a WET setup for Silverstone in the Ferrari 488 GT3 look like?
Sorry Dynomight, I can only get setups from TT which are fixed weather, no rain, fog etc.. Here is the #1 dry setup for PC. The first thing you might want to change for wet conditions is the brake pressure, 100% might be too much. Next he has already maxed out the front camber but you can reduce the front springs a little, the rear springs are almost as low as they go. On the damper side front you can try reducing the bump and rebound transitions to reduce the overall damping which might give you more grip in the wet conditions for the rear it's similar but you might want to just start by reducing the slow rebound by 3 clicks (there is another thread about this already http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?57073-I-maybe-discovered-why-some-cars-handle-so-exaggerated ) to start. If you are still having problems with oversteer there is Jussi's method of reducing rear slow bump and bump transition. He is also slightly negative on rear toe but whatever works. On the LSD he has already minimized the clutches so you could increase the power ramp angle from the 40 degrees he has to say 55 to start, he is already low on the coast ramp. Of course the tire pressures will just be trial and error to get them where you want them. There isn't a setup data base like PC1 but we could share pictures of setups if anyone has them.

If anyone has any advice about tyres overheating it would be greatly appreciated!

If you’re running with other cars then its probably the tire bug on xbox. No setup will get rid of it. More than 10-15 cars on grid overloads the console and tire model goes kaput.

That's what I asked/suggested of him to do from early o'clock (index with names and links in post #1) way before there were as many setups in the thread to make searching and finding them easier knowing how the thread would have grown. Without that it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I didnt know that someone from PC was helping in gathering setups. If I only knew this topic before... Help needed! I need a setup tomorrow night and tomorrow night I got to decide my GT4 car for a brazillian championship.

I need a good GT4 setup for KTM XBow GT4 or Cayman GT4 or Mustang GT4 or Vantage GT4. I do have a wheel (T150).

Here are the 5 tracks for my championship:
1 - Watkins Glen GP
2 - Red Bull Ring GP
3 - Catalunia GP
4 - Circuito das Américas GP
5 - Silverstone GP

I would like to ask you two things for now:
I - Could you have a look at GT4 leaderboards times at these 5 tracks and try to determinate which car (from the four I mentioned) option is the best?
II - After you pick the car you think is the best, could you post right away the first two fastest drivers that has setup sharing enabled for Watkins Glen GP?

Thank you very much, this topic is a time saver for people o PS4.

Hi Blink,
Thanks for the sterling work on sharing setups.
Glad to see Kryptic has a space on here now.
I've tried Kryptics setup with Audi r8 gt3 around Catalunya but don't feel like I've extracted as much out of the car as I should.
As other peeps may have found, front left overheats easily due to long sweeping nature of track.
I've reduced camber, aligned tps and tweaked springs as best I could, but still lose significant grip, especially just before long front stretch when tyres can cool a bit.
Opened front rads as well b which helps a little.
I'm turning low 1.47s in practice but I'd take a second or so hit to get a setup that lasts 10 laps.
That's the mimimu9 distance I tend to race.
If anyone has a solid setup they're willing to share, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi ScoobyDave, since the patch C-Dub has run a 1:44.921 in TT using Hard Tires. I assume you are still having issues with the Hard Tires on longer runs. He has increased camber slightly but reduced spring pressure considerably. Let me know if you would like to see the rest of his setup.

Thank you sir, they were a couple of changes like ride height, camber and toe angles, also some very minor on dampers, but all in all, practice is what I need, amazing what those guys are able to do... studying ghosts will be of great help for a rookie like me, seriously thinking about going pc later in the year.

Hi Jetsun, Mike was most likely running the Default Loose which was for PC only a while ago. He lowered the rear ride height from 120 to 115, camber and toe were not changed from Default Loose. The Stable setup uses the lower(-2.5) camber and 0 rear toe settings. Again this is opposite of a rear wheel drive setup which would lead to increased positive rear toe for stability. Also, the Stable setup uses less engine braking at 2 so if the rear end is coming around too quickly you could try going higher here, even though it's front wheel drive this what you would do to stabilize a rear wheel drive car so it might help. I couldn't find anyone adjusting the LSD for this car so I looked for the most similar car I could find to see what SMS was doing to the LSD for Loose versus Stable. I picked the RS 275 which is slightly heavier and a little more power. The SMS solution for Loose versus Stable was similar, they reduced camber for Stable but this time left rear toe the same and changed the LSD. Maybe you could try these LSD settings on your Clio. Sorry about not being able to utilize the Ghost to improve your driving/tuning, this is one of the advantages of PC.

Also, check out this post from the PC1 game regarding the Clio, it seems to point to the LSD being an issue in PC1.

Ah ok Nice, I still have to look closer at the differences between loose and stable and get the basics of setup, so much to learn, nice! Will try those LSD setting too thank you. I've already increased the number for engine break :)... with time I guess more guys will post videos with hotlap and setup, that will help console guys.
