    Got to GT4 and cars are all crazy loose? Soft slicks?

    Not sure if this is setup talk but I think here is best.

    In career mode. JRGT is pretty easy to keep the cars pointed forward and on the track while going fast. GT5 is the same. Get to GT4 and all the cars are crazy loose. I tested a few but ran the Ginetta in the career. Going into turns, the middle and exit. With both default tunes and even with my tune I can not get the rear to stay down. Even if I do get it somewhat balanced it's just a drift-show all the time. And forget racing in the rain. I finally found the only way to get the car to stick a little is to always run the soft slicks. JRGT is limited to all-weather and GT5 has only one slick choice. My understanding is the difference between soft and hard slicks is the operating temp only. So as long as the hard slick can get up to temp it should have the same grip as the soft slick? Is this true or no? Because it seems not true. The soft seems always better.

    At first I thought the GT4 are just getting more powerful and difficult but GT3 are easy on the default hard slick. Having GT4 in the middle of other well handing classes seems odd. I finally made it through the GT4 races on pure willpower alone but I'd still like to know.

    Side question that's not thread worthy: In time trial I see other racers' info including their tune. Some of the tunes are blank so I assume I can download the ones that aren't. How do I download/view their tune. PC version.

    Hi, if it's blank it just means a Default setup is used in most cases. Here is the way to get tunes. http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...=1#post1576997

    As for GT4 I have always used the Hard slicks in Custom races, I have never done Career. The cars in GT4 are a pain but hardly too difficult to drive.

    Hi,
    I strongly recommend getting through Nighttiger's guide for setups because even if you stick to basic setup (30 minutes of work) you can balance the car to your liking very easily. As for oversteer, generally most of it comes down to suspension tuning and in certain situations due to differential and aerodynamics. When it happens it means that the rear wheels lost traction before the front ones, so it must either be they are too stiff or the front is too soft. Which one to adjust really depends on how you feel the front. If it's fine try softening the rear, if the front is too sluggish stiffen it up.
    Regarding what to stiffen up: suspensions work mainly during weight shift on the longitudinal axes (so braking and acceleration) and sway bars work during lateral weight shift. Since you seem to be experiencing oversteer in any situation I would try to soften up the rear suspension first. Go to TT mode (so you always have warm tyres) and try softening up the suspension by one tick and having a few, steady laps. You should notice some changes. Play a little bit with it but remember: always change ONE THING at a time and never combine changes, especially when in such a situation where you find it hard to find the right balance.
    I personally drove the GT4 Cayman and it was a stable and steady platform on all tracks, so I recommend using that one.
