    FORD Falcon V8 SUPERCAR Set Ups ?

    Hopefully we can use this thread to give tips on the best set ups for the Ford Falcon V8SC released today as free DLC..

    I have only driven her stock setup so far, tomorrow i'll start tweeking, it drives really well imo, hes some serious balls and handles really well despite a few minor things that can be tinkered with, well done and thanks SMS team.

    Your thoughts if you have used it gents?

    cheers

    Haven't driven it yet, not available yet in my neck of the woods, but I'm expecting the spooled (completely solid) diff will prove to be the dominating feature of the car and all setups will need to work their way around it. =)

    Any idea what kind of tyre hot pressure we should aim for?
    Default cold pressure feels a bit sloppy.

    I backed off the rear wing a couple of clicks, and backed off the brake pressure until it stopped locking up the front.

    Streuth, That thing is a howler to drive around Bathurst

    Its definitely has too much roll, these are pretty stiff cars, so a suggestion would be to stiffen it up lads.

    Haven't backed off brake pressure yet. Its brakes aren't all that strong at speed.
    Running it a little soft round ruapuna feels pretty good but need to drive around that locked diff.
    Any clue to good tyre pressure? Tyres feel sloppy.

    Hi mate, i run my pressure real high unless im over or understeering, then i might either drop the front of back a bit and tinker with it.
    Regarding the brakes i try and eliminate them as much as i can but feather them a lot, so i set the pressure pretty high.

    Keeping in mind im only using a PS4 Controller at this point, will be grabbing a T150 when i have the spare cash.

    cheers

    I'm no tuning expert, but here's my setup for this. Very close to stock but got rid of some understeer whilst keeping the rear sane. Full description in the link. Try it out, I'm open to suggestions

    Also it was the 97th Ford setup on the site, which is very exciting for me

    All I have done so far is played with ARB's, i think two clicks stiffer front and one click stiffer in the rear in car
