Been really enjoying this car the past few days, even in the wet, so I guess it's time to share. This tune has been refined across Oulton Park Fosters and Donington National before being fully dialled in at Silverstone National. Just be warned that this is one of those cars with light weight and not a lot of power so is slow to warm the tyres - expect ~3 laps for the rears and another lap for the fronts with this tune around one of the tracks mentioned.
There's not a lot of settings to change, which makes tuning this easier in some ways, and harder in that there's less you can do to fix certain issues.
If anyone does try it, feedback is always welcome.

I'd been struggling with the Caterham 7 Classic track days and this sorted it out. It's a bit ridiculous how much you need to drop the tyre pressure on every car seemingly.
Glad it helped - if a tune I put up helps just one person then I'm happy to have put it up.
Got to agree with you about the tyres though. I was initially running this one around 1.3 bar, and although the balance was there it just didn't quite feel as though it had the grip it should have done. As it was also taking an age to warm the tyres, I figured it was worth trying a lower pressure just for temperature's sake, and am pleased to say it worked.
Similar topic, but I wonder if when they release the Bentley that extra weight will make the default pressures about right?
Now I know I work in computers but where do go to look up this one ?

No idea how to get it on PC I'm afraid. Only way I know is on the Xbox and pressing X to find yourself or using the triggers to scroll down. It is quite possible though that some of the drivers higher up the board have gone faster in a Caterham but overwritten with a faster car.
For anyone who has this tune, I've revisited it while going through career, and have increased the Bump Stops. They're still at 0mm, but as I posted in Moon's kart build, I believe it is worth playing around with them all the same. I'd suggest moving the slider so it's just under the "B" of the word Bump.
All other settings are the same, and the car doesn't drive any differently other than it doesn't get as thrown by large bumps or if you clip a big kerb.
