Tuning Masters

Post by AAR GTDon on Thu Jan 24, 2013 1:40 am

I've been thinking about a fun little thing to do for those who enjoy tuning cars but may not be the best drivers of their own wrenching.

The idea is you designate a car with a particular build, and then allow anyone who thinks they can tune the car to do so. Then, 2 drivers, 1 hand controller, and 1 wheel driver are given the tuned cars to turn some laps in. Each driver will do 10 laps at the specified track. Add the 2 best lap times together from each driver, and then divide by 2 to get an average lap time. The tuner that has the fastest average lap with his tune, is the IFCA Tuning Master.

There would be just 1 submission per tuner.

So for example, lets say, the car is a 1970 Corvette @ Road Atlanta with a build of:



Engine & Power
- Race Air Filter
- Sport Exhaust
- Street Flywheel
Platform & Handling
- Race Brakes
- Race Springs and Dampers
- Race Front Anti-Roll Bars
- Race Rear Anti-Roll Bars
- Race Chassis Reinforcement
and Roll Cage
- Race Weight Reduction
Drivertrain
- Race Clutch
- Race Transmission
- Race Driveline
- Race Differential
Tires & Rims
- Race Tire Compound
- Front Tire Width (255)
- Rear Tire Width (305)
Aero & Appearance
- Remove Rear Bumper



Wheel driver will be AAR GTDon

Controller driver will be DMR Kryptonic (maybe)

When you think you have your best tune, send it over to me and I will send it to Kryptonic or whoever is willing.

Thumbs up! Shall I begin with this example car? I consider myself a fair driver, with fair tuning skills, sound fair to you?

I found this resource for real world transmission ratios:
http://www.tremec.com/calculadora.php
Something to consider while tweaking on a tune.
I still haven't begun this challenge, perhaps this afternoon prior to Spec Vette. I feel my tune for that is pretty good.
I've been trying to replicate the paint and graphics on a TruSpeed911 for my project of late.... I think I found the true logos I need to complete this project. ( They are too small and blurry to discern in photos sometimes). Now that I found them, I only have to replicate them, estimate; 12 hours. OH NO!!!!
