Tuning Springs, Dampers, Sway Bars and Tire Pressures right, more than overcomes any loss of downforce :D

The tuning is hardddddd, I experimented so much to get a well balanced car, and it's still not perfect. These generic numbers instead of real world data for the tuning section SUCK!

If you haven't already, read the Tuning Tips blog on SHIFT 2 website, helps a little, then just experiment :D

i just did actually.. :D we'll see what i can do :) its annoying to not have a cracked exe for the new patch ;D the FFB bugs are crazy.. and input lag also is noticeable.. :) can't wait to try without it :D

racing with logitech driving force pro.. 900deg wheel so i might increase the rotation a bit to 540.. as this feels to "twitchy" on some cars and specially the ae86..

Another tip, set all settings to the middle, then test the car out and find out how it needs to be tuned, works well for me.

yup.. really annoying seem to get the entry right and fuck up on the exit with too much power on or fuck up on the entry and then do the exit properly.. :D can't get both right.. :) seems to be my problem looking at the sector times and comparing them to yours... going to try again later tonight :)

i can see that lol! :D i lost it soooo many times over the week.. i must have done 50+ laps :D

challenger is not bad actually.. feels more controllable than the ae86.. :D did a few laps and i can see the final time being around 2.05 ;D the weight on it feels thought..

You using the V10? I'm averaging around 2 minutes flat on default setup, tailsliding like a mofo :o The torque in this thing is insane :S

works converted :O first time driving that track ( i know lame.. ) but i like it already :D with practise i might get better at it! :D

Added 25 minutes later:

at the moment 02.3.9 is my best.. :) there's a lot to improve.. :o could it be that the challenger is actually faster without works?

Added 6 hours 22 minutes later:

oh i see now.. i did not do an engine swap so i have a v8 challanger works converted.. i have bought another one this time with v10.. and i see what you mean with the torque.. crazy thing.. hard to keep in a straight line when you exit the corner..

install a v10 and then convert to works! :D you'll see what a beast it becomes.. but if you want to get the best out of.. you'll need to be able to control it..

this is my time just for the sake of it..

ill do better.. i actually done it already just forgot to snap the screen! :D

this is with the v8 works converted! i have another one with v10 ;)
