yeah, im EST right now, and im thinking thats the closest ill ever be to your time.


either they are really shy, or just wanna reap the benefits of our conversations. the bright side is some talking is better then none!


im also home today (was feeling sick this morning, feel good now!), so i will build as many of the rest of the listed cars as i can (i think 3 are DLC i dont have), and update my testing/review thread!

I'll be on tomorrow. I think my wife said she has to do a photoshoot, (well, that's about 1 pm my time) So, i'll have some time then. And.. yeah man! for the 2nd season I've got 18 new cars and then 8 T1 cars (4WD and RWD cars are SUPER hard to find for the league) I tried the 05 mustang and it's handling was quite poor Sad I was a bit bummed by that

either post, pm or email me the specs, at least on the '05 stang to bring it up to specs, and ill get to work testing. got another day off and a half day tomorrow, so i have plenty of time to tame the beast! ill let you know how it goes. what track/tracks did you test on? the mustang is so picky you need a correct setup for almost every track!

edit: i have also added the rest of the cars i have built for season 1, i will keep editing that post in "the dyno" to get the info more professional, as well as more benefitial for other members! just figured id throw that up here because i mentioned it earlier in this thread!

lol Keep hitting "Edit post" on your posts... ah well

I just drove the stang on Maple valley, however, it was just sliding all over the place. The numbers said it had a 5.6 handling with the G's being .97 @ 60 mph and .97 @ 120 mph... at any rate, i'd like it to be at least a .98, as that's where most of the cars sit. (well .99 mostly)

I'm sure a lot of it's in the tuning, as it ..well wasn't steering out but gliding out... that's the anti-roll bars for sure (maybe with a mix of the camber?)

If I can, i'll be on tonight... That is of course, unless the wife wants to watch a movie or something. If not, i'll be on maybe

oh and not trying to be rough or sarcastic, but when i said specs on the mustangs, i meant specs so i could build one and have a go at tuning it, i could build ANY mustang with ANY specs to out-turn current FTCC cars, but i would like to tune the 05 mustang built to the same spec as what you were trying.


ocasionally i find lack of rear end grip could be helped by too much front end grip, so maybe having 215 (or one/two sizes below reg) might be one trick to use (and look out for), that and like you said sway bars and camber. tire pressures, driving style, spring rates, damping, all of it can have varied effects.

that sounds good to me! its 11:48 est now, so that gives me some time to re-do testing at suzuka, and make a table with cars ranked fastest to slowest, ect. i told you, i cant just run laps, need to do something more scientific!
