Ah, Forza Motorsport 4…some say it’s still the best Motorsport title to date. How about that Hot Wheels expansion in Horizon 3? Sometimes you want to fire up an old Forza title and cruise through the memories.
But then you realize the older versions of ForzaTune aren’t available.
Fear not! You have several options to create a suspension or gearing tune for any Forza game.
The Free Version of ForzaTune
Download the lightweight version on the App Store or Google Play and make tunes in seconds. These formulas require just 4 pieces of information. It’s also a great place to start if you’re new to using a tuning calculator.
Tuning Previous Forza Games with ForzaTune Pro
One of the lesser known features in ForzaTune Pro is the ability to create a tune for unlisted cars. This is helpful for older Forza games or if you want more control over customizations than you get in the free version.
Here’s a quick run through…

How to Tune Unlisted Cars
Start as usual where you would select a vehicle name. If the car is not in the database you will see an option to tune by division.
Tap the tune by division button and you will be able to select a division that includes your vehicle. This allows the formulas to get a close approximation of the vehicle’s physics, etc. Tune as you normally would from there. I recommend using the customizations to dial in your desired feel.
For even more general cases, you can scroll all the way to the bottom of the division list and select the “general” option. This is similar to creating a tune with older versions of ForzaTune that used a common vehicle model.
Download ForzaTune to create solid base tunes for any Forza game, and feel free to explore some of the hidden features of ForzaTune Pro if you want gearing or more advanced tune customization.
