ForzaTune Premiere Available Now

21 Oct 2009
by Anthony Curtis

ForzaTune is a fast, convenient iPhone app that provides suspension tunes for your Forza Motorsport rides.  The Lite (free) version has been out for a few weeks but Apple came through and approved ForzaTune Premiere almost a week earlier than I expected.  Click here to download your copy now and enjoy all of the most-requested updates!

ForzaTune Premiere

ForzaTune Premiere includes the following features not found in the Lite version:
»Aerodynamic compensation for more accurate tunes.
»A numeric pad to enter vehicle information that you can use instead of the slider bars.
»Brake bias and force settings for more controllable braking.
»Differential settings for FWD, RWD and AWD vehicles to help keep the power to the ground.
»Access to FREE updates including FM3 tweaks (TIP: take advantage of the introductory price!).

Download here (iTunes store link)

UPDATE (10/27/09): Many players are using this app for Forza Motorsport 3.  There is always room for improvement though and Feuerdog has some tweaks to roll into the next version (2.0) along with metric updates and more.   But no need to wait–get your copy now and start using on FM3!

UPDATE (10/28/09): Feuerdog (the mastermind behind the calcs) is recommending a slightly stiffer setup for FM3 now that he has had time to test.  His recommendation is to increase weight OR spring rates by 20% for the time being.  A lot more testing to do still–thanks for the patience.  More updates to come!

    We (european people) need the metric units….
    pls do that wih fm3 update

    I will buy the Premiere version today, to support this fantastic idea. Please think about getting the metric system update earlier, as we Europeans need them.

    I am really looking forward to your future updates. Softer and stiffer setups: very good idea. And of course FM3 changes.

    Is there a time frame when to expect these changes (FM3). I got my copy of FM3 yesterday and of course can´t wait to use your tool.

      thanks Big Child! I am most likely going to roll out a 1.1 version in November to address metric. Planning it out now :)

    Hi,

      The ‘Future Updates’ page is where I’ll post schedules and timeframes. From early reports it seems like it is working well with FM3…I’ve identified a number of changes due to feedback from users. I’ll know much more next week when I can get my copy.

  • Adam Langford on October 24, 2009 at 9:01 am

    Purchased the full version to use with FM3 which came out yesterday, however I am having trouble locating the stats for my car to input into this program, is it radically different or am I being dim? :(

      Sorry, I can’t help you until I get my copy next Tuesday (US launch date). Anyone else out there that can help Adam in the meantime?

  • Andrew on October 25, 2009 at 1:33 am

    App is great so far, definately need a metric verison. Only thing Im having issues with is the spring rates, the app says 450.. what units is this? The game is using kgf/mm for me and only goes up to about 200.

    How do i convert this?

    Thanks

    • Anthony Curtis
      Anthony Curtis on October 27, 2009 at 1:00 am

      Yes, the current units are English (imperial). Update coming soon!

  • Big Child on October 25, 2009 at 8:01 am

    @Adam:
    The stats for weight and dist. are in “My cars” push the “Y”-button once, the view changes to theses stats.

    Tire width is under “Upgrades” to go “tires and rims”.

    The downforce is in tuning under downforce.

    I hope I translated the menues correctly ´cause I didn´t switch my game to English. Have fun!

    • Adam Langford on October 28, 2009 at 5:20 am

      Thanks Big Child :)

  • Markie X on October 28, 2009 at 9:10 am

    New to Forza but i read the thread so i bought this as a support
    gesture (shame on them for not giving a free FM3 copy)

    P.S. please add ”metric” for us euro’s ; )

    Keep up the great work!

  • Vinnie on October 28, 2009 at 5:00 pm

    I bought the app…does everything work with it? looks like people are having some trouble

    • Anthony Curtis
      Anthony Curtis on October 28, 2009 at 8:09 pm

      Feuerdog and I are working to make updates to it. Right now he recommends making the spring rates 20% stiffer. This can be done by putting in a weight 20% greater or taking the results of the calc and adding 20% to the spring rates. More to follow!

      The most important part is that there will be a free update as soon as it can be tested.

  • Wardancer on October 30, 2009 at 4:24 am

    Very nice app! I only managed to make cars worse before, but yesterday I tuned a car and it became a lot better. The +20% spring rate doesn’t seem to apply all the time though, in one instance the extra 20% seemed to throw off the balance of the car, but then again I’m not much of a tuner, so maybe I messed up elsewhere *shrug*

    As for new features, I’d like to see the application store the last values used. I switched back and forth between the app and the calculator, but then the app forgot the last used settings every time. And the aforementionned metric system would be nice.

    Nice work!

      Thanks for the support Wardancer. I was wondering if people would start requesting ‘save’ type features. I am glad you suggested it. Right now it defaults back anytime you leave the app. What I am probably going to do–need to consult with Feuerdog this weekend–is add a temporary 20% bump or a way to fine tune…we’ll see! I want to keep the app simple and fast but make it as usable as possible!

  • Erlend S on October 30, 2009 at 10:03 am

    Bought the app. What I need and I see many others also crave is metric units for easier setup for us europeans. Otherwise a great app. Lusting for an update with metrics and 20% stiffer setups included.

    • Anthony Curtis
      Anthony Curtis on October 30, 2009 at 7:29 pm

      Thanks for supporting the app! I am looking into getting the 20% temporary tweak into the next update. I appreciate everyone’s patience :)

  • Matt on October 31, 2009 at 12:03 pm

    Great app, cant wait for the updates!

  • Dodger on November 1, 2009 at 4:00 pm

    Hello,

    Just bought the Premiere version, great program only use it for Forza 3, been adding +20% but does not work 100% of time.
    Nice user interface, temporary updatae would be good if it could save your last data, when switching between calculator and app for adding the +20, untill proper Forza 3 update is out.

    Keep up the good work.

  • CptnBuggernutz on November 3, 2009 at 8:06 am

    Great app, trialed the free version on FM2 before i got my hands on a copy of FM3 and as soon as i bought FM3 i ourchased the premiere app. (And I never buy apps, only get the free ones, but this one i had to have).

    Great work guys, this works a treat so far.

    Only thing i can think of to ‘improve’ it would be the save settings feature, although i have managed to get around this by saving them to the car in the game. The units dont bother me as i’m from the UK so its all old-skool units here.

    Great job guys.

    CB.

    As soon as I heard of this App I bought premier version didn’t even bother with free version. It is a great in the ballpark setup tool very very helpfull for those sometimes picky cars. I’m in the US no need for me on the metric but I can certainly see where other do need this. Only 1 thing really from me is the setup that comes from calc + 20% still does not allow car to keep a line during a turn. And most won’t turn in fast enough suggestions? Is this the tighter looser update your talking about? Please if anything I can do to help test or suggestions I’m always playing and would love to help out.

  • Bryan on November 3, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    Excellent app. Besides needing more range for the downforce ratios (which you are already on top of, I believe), a setup save feature would be awesome. Not sure if this is possilble. Also, the ability to apply tweaks, like a built in setting to reduce corner exit oversteer and things like that. (I’ve seen this sort of option on a web based tuner that uses Feuerdogs calcs)

  • Anthony Curtis
    Anthony Curtis on November 3, 2009 at 3:40 pm

    Great news everyone! Feuerdog has been tuning like a madman and was able to get me his latest FM3 tunes. I plan to send the update to Apple this evening. Expect a full post with more details.

  • don on November 3, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    great app so far. a tuning spreadsheet was just released.

    i hope some of the values help out with this app! i can’t wait for some future updates….hopefully once some tunes get around there can be pre-determined drift/drag setups in the app that let you know what parts to buy etc.

    • Anthony Curtis
      Anthony Curtis on November 6, 2009 at 1:55 am

      Yes, the update coming next week is based off the calcs in that sheet. Thanks for posting the link.
