    Angry Unable to change certain settings on some cars

    Hi guys,

    I have tried searching for the answer to this all over the place but am unable to, so I apologize if this has been answered already.

    For some reason with some cars, I am unable to change certain settings. For example Mitsubishi Evolution X, I am unable to adjust ride height, but I am able to adjust the camber and sway bars which doesn't make sense.

    I tried in solo race, practice, various modes with various cars and I can't remember a car where I was able to change everything. What am I missing?



    Any replies are appreciated.

    I'm not 100% sure on the Evo, but for most cars it comes down to a mixture of things. Does homologation restrict certain modifications? Does the car come with adjustable "x" out of the box?

    For instance I'm pretty sure that you can't change the aero, but then the original didn't have any aero, bar a fixed boot spoiler.

    The cars have been modelled based on real life counterparts. This is likely what you're seeing. Post up what you think is wrong tho, and I'm sure others will confirm for sure.

    Thanks for a quick reply.

    So for the Evo for example, I am able to change camber and various spring rates but cannot change ride height? To me it seems a bit inconsistent that I am able to change some suspension aspects but not something as simple as ride height, which is what led me to believe that something is off.

    You can adjust camber and toe in nearly every street car (in very narrow corridors), but you can't adjust the ride height in any run-of-the-mill-sedan out there. Spring rates are a bit more common to adjust than ride height too.

    ride height - is not simple at all. it is much more complicated than camber and various spring rates. and evo is pretty simple car imho

    I have understood Toe but can you explain how Camber works and what is its effects.

    Before you judge a game for inconsistencies maybe you should put your head underneath a car and understand whats going on...

    all cars will allow you to change toe on the front, and lots will allow you to change camber but to change damping, bump stop and ride height requires adjustable coilovers. the reason why you will be able to change spring rate is because you could swap the springs in the shock absorber with no other modifications

    Camber is the slant of the wheels. Imagine a tyre standing in front of you so you see the profile. Just standing on the ground it has 0° camber.

    If you tilt the upper side to the middle of the car, it has negative camber.
    If you tilt the upper side away from the car, it is positive camber.

    If the negative camber is set correctly, it will increase cornering grip. On the downside you will loose traction whilst going straight (braking / accelerating).

    Positive camber will achieve the opposite. Gain traction at the cost of cornering grip

    I expected a more mature response from someone on these boards but I guess forums are forums.

    Well I do have coilovers on my car which is the reason why I asked. My example was ride height, springs and camber. I know most stock suspension allows slight adjustments to camber and toe in etc, but other adjustments I mentioned require coilovers/springs. And like you said, changing spring rate requires changing springs, but changing ride height can be also done by changing springs, which is where the inconsistency is.

    To be perfectly clear my post wasn't meant to criticize the game, I just thought my profile was corrupted or something so I wanted to double check if that was intentional.
