ForzaTune 6 v3.0 Now Available

 

Earlier today we updated ForzaTune 6 to bring some long-requested features and celebrate Forza Horizon 3.

Get Started with Drag Racing Tunes

This latest version delivers a new drag racing option in addition to the original dry, rain and drift tunes. The drag tune gives you a better starting point for alignment and suspension settings designed to help launch. You’ll still need a good build and driving skill!

Forza Horizon 3 Compatability

As in past versions, the formulas for Motorsport work well for Horizon, but we wanted to add something special: you now have an off-road option designed specifically for Horizon 3 and the rally suspension upgrade.

Select this tuning mode to combine street handling and off-road capability – like a race/rally hybrid tune. It’s a great way to explore the open world of Forza Horizon 3 in sportier cars.

Other updates include better gearing for high-torque vehicles like those with diesel or hybrid/electric powertrains.

ForzaTune 4 is Now Available!

ForzaTune 4 is available for purchase on the App Store. Here is the link…

Use this new app to get a great foundation for your suspension tune as quickly as possible.

Frequently asked questions:

Q.  What is Tune Stability?

It’s an easy way to add more oversteer or understeer.  Lower the percentage to make your car have a little more oversteer.  I will be turning this into a simple slider that lets you go over 100% (increasing understeer in the process).  EDIT:  Version 4.0.1 has this update!

Q.  Why do you only have RWD, AWD, FWD?  Does engine position matter?

Engine position is not needed with the way these calculations are designed.   Our tuning genius Feuerdog devised a way to make it even simpler using weight distribution.  Simpler is better (and faster!).

Q.  First time I load the app I get some crazy numbers for the springs, camber, etc…

Simply close the app and reopen it to fix this issue–it will only happen the first time you download.  Version 4.0.1 will be out this week to fix the small glitch.

Thanks again for the great comments, ratings and overall awesome support from the Forza community!

ForzaTune 2.0.2 Available (iOS4 Tested)

onphone2iOS4 users should be able to take full advantage of the new ForzaTune updates with this 2.0.2 release.  This update fixes the missing ‘DONE’ button on the keypad. To recap all of the 2.0 goodness I have copied the original announcement below…

Biggest Update of the Year

New look and interface, new tunes and tons of features added to the free version. Full version is still only US$1.99!

Look Familiar?

Fans of Forza3 will appreciate the new FM3-inspired interface and color scheme. Even the app icon gets a new twist to coincide with the game. 2.0 not only looks better but works better too with a change to allow use on the iPad. Other changes make it easier to use the Car Info and Gearing screens.

Drift Tunes are Here!

We use to get 5 emails a day requesting drift tunes–well thanks for the encouragement and enjoy the new base tunes designed for going sideways and maintaining better control with the tail out.

The full version also gets the closely-guarded, personal base tune (called Pro Grip) developed by Feuerdog. Pro Grip is only available on the ForzaTune app. It is such a great base tune you may get a little giddy the first time you try it. Like a kid on Christmas.

That’s all I am going to write for now. Words don’t do it justice–just download one of the new versions and see for yourself!

Announcing ForzaTune Premiere v1.2

v1_2-is-here

In the spirit of ‘fine-tuning’, we have released another update to ForzaTune Premiere!  Be sure to update your app if you have not already.  If you are currently running the Lite version now is a great time to upgrade!  This new version includes:

  • Significant improvements to the Forza 3 suspension calculations.
  • Auto-save feature that saves your car info between sessions.  The data is saved whenever you click ‘Get Tune’.  Go ahead and answer that text message…your tune will be waiting for you when you reload!
  • More precise metric conversion on spring rates.
  • Step-by-step instructions in the help section…including tips and tricks for customizing the ForzaTune base tune.
  • Fix so you no longer need OS 3.1.2 to download–whoops! (minimum OS requirement is 3.0 again)

This is a ‘must-download’ update–enjoy!

(Don’t have the Premiere app yet?  Click here to go to iTunes)

If you are new to this whole custom tune world check out the tutorial I made on how to use the application and where to find car details.  A little humor mixed in with some seriously useful info!
