PostSubject: I hate to ask but i need help   Tue Feb 19, 2013 2:37 am

i just resently started playing and being more serious on forza again and well... im sucking.
i cant compete any more. not only that im no good with mid engine cars.
so im asking some 1 to help me understand how a mid engine works and help me drive 1 to my full potential.

Most of you know i only run FRs and use to drive S15 alot. so it sort of feels weird driving a mid engine but i realy like this car and wanna be able to drive it to my full potential , and i dont think i am doing it right

ah the mid-engine cars can be a bitch Smile I'm working on an NSX now and it's pretty quick already but sometimes just seems to start sliding for no obvious reason even when pussyfooting the gas so I know what you mean dora

what car is it that you want to drive anyway?

i loose traction very easy. some times i hit inside walls . i need to brake in a straight line or the car will under steer like a bitch. i seem to loose alot of speed after hairpins , i thinks its my lines. i may still try to run it like a FR but its not a FR, any help will be appreciated. thanks

Well with a mid engine you want to push the car harder in the corners than you would in an rear wheel drive. Let's say you take a corner at about 40 mph in an S15, try taking it at about 42 mph in the fierro. You should also make sure to take a more traditional line through the corners. These might seem like small differences, but it is the biggest advantage of using a mid engine car. And if something doesn't feel right you might need to check the LSD settings. That's about it for my two cents, good luck dood!

just got online, sending the tune now. as to your problem with the downshifting in entry to corners and the ass kicking out, you need to increase the deceleration on the differential. try 30%. anyway im MR tune will help you out but overall i dont have the Fierro so you gotta apply the tune yourself and give me some feed back if something is still going on with the car.
ok mr.angry face. ill check it out as soon as i get on line. busy all day so probably tomorrow. thanks
