based on the weight distribution setup theory of Highlandor
Car Type of Drive:
The first step to setup according the weight distribution setup is to find out the weight balance of the car. The figures are shown at settings -> body/chassis -> ballast. They are blue and directly below the car symbol.
Spring Rate Minimum
Determine the lowest figure for the spring rate. You can find it out, by clicking the adjustment of the springrate. On the left side here, fill in the lowest number possible for the front. On the right site, the lowest number for the rear.
Spring Rate Maximum
Determine the highest figure for the spring rate. You can find it out, by clicking the adjustment of the springrate. On the left side here, fill in the highest number possible for the front. On the right site, the highest number for the rear.
Spring Rate Stiffness in %
Most cars when lowered, will have their suspension stiffened. The numbers here are percentages. So 100 means 100% spring rate stiffness according to the weight distribution. If you like to have the springs stronger, try 110 for road cars or 120 for race cars. For cars with a lot of downforce you can even use up to 180%. Lower numbers than 100 are good if you have rough surfaces. Please use the same numbers for front and rear as long as you have no really good reason to setup your car in a none weight distributed way.
The shown figures are calculated due to your inputs above. They will be displayed with 2 decimals for your information. To setup the spring rates round the numbers.
Highlandor so far didn't stated public recomandations for the dampers, so these calculated settings here are based on the expierences of Corse. They do work well for me with most cars and tracks. Round them up or down and take them as an inital start for your setups.
Generally Gran Turismo 5 advices to use the same or lower numbers for the compression than the dampers extension. This is the reason why the compression figures are 0.3 lower than the extension. Round them and try them on the track. The calculations of the dampers aren't based on Highlandors theory.
If your springs and dampers are SOFT, you need HARD anti roll bars, if your springs and dampers are HARD you need SOFT anti roll bars.
How to actually tune your roll bars individually:
If your front is not rotating (understeer) lower the front ARB, if your rear is not rotating lower the rear ARB.
If your front is rotating too much increase the front ARB, if the rear is rotating too much (oversteer), increase the rear ARB.
(if the above doesn't work, then try this)
If your front is not rotating enough, increase the rear ARB, if your rear is not rotating enough increase the front ARB.
If your front is rotating too much, decrease the rear ARB. If your rear is rotating too much decrease the front ARB. ALWAYS amend the roll bars 1 click (+1 or -1) at a time.
