    Nighttigers's Step-by-Step Setup Guide

    Hi fellow racers ,

    Today I proudly release my Project Cars 2 step-by-step setup guide made for all drivers. It is a guide that is both in-depth and accessible for drivers of all experiences. The reason I created this guide was because I felt that although there was a load of information on the internet on setting cars up, the information was scattered, difficult to understand, not natural to use and categorized illogical. The goal was to combine easy to understand information with clear instructions, a sensible order in setup changes and make it applicable to Project Cars 2, in which I hope I succeeded. It is an easy step-by-step schedule that will get you going on setting up your car.

    This is the first version of this guide and I believe the first one of his kind for Project Cars 2. There will be an added section about Wet Weather setups and LiveTrack 3.0 in the future since these are a very integral part of Project Cars 2. I hope you, as reader, can use this guide to make a racecar behave like you want it to. I remember my first time when I managed to do that and I was ecstatic. Finally I had the knowledge to fix annoying, crippling car balance and I couldn’t stop trying out new cars and taming them! It gave me so much enjoyment. Also thanks to @Puffpirat and @miagi from RevolutionSimRacing.com for adding in bits and reviewing the document! RSR is where I race, be sure to check them out!

    Please, enjoy! If you have any questions, remarks or suggestions, please let me know in the thread! There are little sentence mistakes but all will be fixed in the new version!

    Great beginning guide! Well written and covers the basics in a clear concise way.

    Anyone wanting to dive deep I recommend reading the Tune Bible: RCVD
    https://www.amazon.com/Race-Car-Vehi...hicle+dynamics

    Or any Carroll Smith book:

    and if you are looking on how to interpret telemetry results :

    If you send the money to my paypal account ( Iwontkeepitformyselfhonestly@totallylegit.guv ) then I'll make sure nighttiger receives it



    EDIT : In case there is any doubt, whatsoever, do NOT send money to that address, it is of course a poor attempt at humour. But at least I didn't mention coleslaw or s**b in the address, so there is that to be thankful for!

    Glad to hear that you are liking it! Currently I do not have anything set up for donations as it was just something I wanted to share with all drivers and I enjoyed doing it. If you really want to donate I wont stop you haha, you can send me a PM!
