[BETTER TO USE THE TUNE IN POST 2]

I guess my tunes are turning into a bit of a running commentary on where I am with career. So, most of you can guess I've just finished Season 1. That said, this was tuned for the dry, although it isn't too bad in the wet.

It was tuned for Sonoma Short, and it should be remembered that I appear to be catastrophically slow in this game. But, to give an idea of pace, I got it around the track in 1:30.7 in the time trial, and 1:33.7 in the (very wet and foggy) race. Managed to hold off the AI in that race too, so you can be consistent with it I run with "real" assists though, if you switch all off things may feel a little different in this car.

As for driving, treat it with the respect you need to treat all cars in this game and it will reward you. The front tyres will go red, but they do seem to hold their grip reasonably well, so don't panic too much.

Got around to this one in the new career, and if I'm honest it was always the tune I was least happy with. Turned out that I had been letting the assists do all the work (this was the last one I tuned before switching to tuning with all assists forced off), so I figured it was worth retuning. First time around I'd been trying to get rid of the horrendous understeer from the default settings and had ended up going too far. Turn in was particularly bad for the back end coming around, so the rear rebound setting had quite a large reduction, but so did the rear springs and sway bar.

It turned out to be a good move as I was quickly able to get it more stable and about 2 seconds a lap quicker (1:31.8 in the race in heavy rain with fog). After thinking I would have to turn the difficulty down from 60% after doing the Sonoma race in my first career, I was able to work my way through the field to gain the lead halfway through the penultimate lap at 80% AI.
