QuickTune 7 v45.0 has been released!

This update brings Improved tuning for mid and rear engine cars. As it turned out mid and rear engine cars require reverse front and rear setup of ARBs and springs as compared to front engine cars. Rear engine cars additionally require reverse setup of tire pressures and dampers. Also over- und understeer adjustments work reverse for mid and rear engine cars.

It also brings improved  tuning for race cars on all tracks. It seems race cars generally don't favor drastic differential changes which make them more unstable as compared to Standard differential settings. Therefore this update disables differential tuning for race cars. Even if you choose differential modes like High or Medium QuickTune will now always use Standard differential settings for race cars.


Furthermore aero tuning has been improved for cars with very high rear aero (max. downforce >= 1000lb) for following tracks:
Indianapolis GP
Indianapolis GP Classic
Road America Full
Road Atlanta Full
Spa Full
VIR Full
VIR Grand East

QuickTune 7 v41.0 has been released!

 

This version brings a revamped differential tuning as well as support for Full Grip and Full Speed tuning.

Firstly there are now two new differential tuning settings available: Low and Medium-Low, also Medium has been renamed to Medium-High but works otherwise identical to the old Medium setting.

 

Low and Medium-Low differential settings are more suitable for grip oriented tracks like Catalunya School or COTA West than the Standard differential setting. All tracks that had Standard differential settings have been updated to either Low or Medium-Low differential settings. Furthermore two new track presets Medium Grip and Medium Speed have been added that allow for more diverse grip and speed tuning.

Also transmission tuning has been improved when using the High or Medium-High (old Medium) differential settings.

Furthermore differential tuning for Prototype Race Cars have been enabled, so you have the full range of differential settings also available for these kind of cars.

Last but not least support for Full Grip and Full Speed tuning have been added that brings improved tuning for Full Grip and Full Speed builds.

Full Grip builds are considered builds with a maximum tire width  front and rear and a sport or race chassis reinforcement upgrade. Full Speed builds are considered builds with a power that exceeds the cars stock power by at least 100hp (75 kW) and with stock tire width  front and rear and a sport or race chassis reinforcement upgrade. 

Full Grip builds require extreme soft and oversteer tuning, Full Speed builds require extreme understeer and stiff tuning. If QuickTune detects a Full Grip or Full Speed tune it will now show a switch in Tuning Options where Full Grip and Full Speed tuning can be switched on or off. By default it is activated and should only be disabled if you experience problems with the tune which will occur when QuickTune wrongly detects a Full Grip or Full Speed build mainly due to wrong tire data for the car.
