(F3) to open



Features:



Engine:
  • Each key in the torque curve can be individually changed and the amount of keys can be changed.
  • Above each slider for each torque value, is a torque number, which will be colored bold-white when it is the most influential slider at that rpm.
  • You can also keep the engine from overheating by enabling 'No Overheat'
  • You can also use the multiplier slider on the far left, which will increase torque all across the rev band.
  • You can change the responsiveness of the engine, making it rev up faster.
  • As soon as you apply the changes, the torque curve will be automatically updated, if torque curves are enabled in options.
Gearbox:
  • Each gear ratio can be individually changed, you can add more or remove gear ratios.
  • Above each slider for each gear ratio, is a ratio number, which will be colored in bold-white when that gear ratio is selected.
  • Below each slider for each gear ratio, is a max speed value, which is the maximum, theoretical possible speed
  • You can also use the multiplier slider on the far left, which will increase the gear ratios for each gear.
  • In the middle, you can see the selected gear, RPM, and speed.
  • You can also change the Final Drive ratio.
  • You can also change the drivetype from RWD, FWD, and AWD. note: because of how the game is coded, AWD will cut max speed by half, to fix this just reduce the final drive ratio by half.
  • As soon as you apply the changes, the torque-ratio curve will be automatically updated, if torque curves are enabled. the torque-ratio curve also shows a possibly-max max-speed. although it seems it's really buggy at the moment.


Chassis:
  • At the top, you can see the car's weight.
  • You can adjust the max steering angle.
  • You can adjust the wheel offset, more offset = more outwards.
  • You can adjust the maximum brake power.
  • You can enable 'hydraulic handbrake', which will make the handbrake a lot stronger.
  • In the Spring Tuning dropdown, you can adjust spring and damper stiffness for each wheel.
  • you can also see the corner on which the wheel is on, the rough description for the current setup, ride frequency, and damper ratio.
  • You can also lock either paralel axis together (Front left - Front right, Rear left - Rear Right), or lock all axis together which when you adjust some slider, will adjust that slider for all of the wheels.
  • As soon as you apply the changes, the wheel-drop step response chart will update automatically, if torque curves are enabled in the options.
  • In the Ride Height Tuning dropdown, you can adjust the ride height of each wheel.
  • The values above the sliders show the corner on which the wheel is on, a rough description on the current setting, and ride height (currently only in cm, can't be changed to imperial)
  • In the Forward Traction Tuning dropdown, you can change the forward grip of each wheel.
  • you can change Static friction (which is the maximum friction until the wheel starts slipping), and Dynamic friction (which is the friction While the wheel is slipping).
  • The values above the sliders show the corner on which the wheel is on, and the rough description of the current configuration.
  • In the Side Traction Tuning dropdown, the same can be done as in the Forward Tuning Dropdown, but this one is for sideways grip, not forward grip.

Options:
  • In the options you can change the text scale;
  • menu gap size;
  • horizontal size (width);
  • toggle torque curves;
  • toggle menu background images;
  • toggle the sus;
  • toggle hydraulic function (more on this lower down!);
  • change the messurement units;
  • and enable auto-apply which will automatically apply any made changes
if you enable hydraulics in options, you can use your keyboard to adjust ride height on the fly,  The keys are:
Home- FL+,        Keypad 4- RL+
Keypad 7- FL-,    Keypad 1- RL-
Keypad /- Front+, Keypad 5- Rear+
Keypad 8- Front-, Keypad 2- Rear-
Keypad *- FR+,    Keypad 6- RR+
Keypad 9- FR-,    Keypad 3- RR-
PageUp- Global+,  PageDown- Global-

(note: many of these keys only work with numlock, so make sure to toggle it)
(didn't asign numlock key to FL+ for obvious reasons)
