Due to my background previously as an automotive technician, I never had a problem understanding the various components of chassis tuning and the effect that they have on the car. However, I realize that not everybody has the same knowledge base to work from. Hence, setting up a cars’ suspension, transmission, down force and differential could be a difficult and frustrating task.
So to add more great content to this site I went out and searched for a comprehensive setup guide for the cars in Gran Turismo 5. Instead of reading like a book, it’s in a chart format which I think brings justice to understanding this topic! I hope you find this guide useful and can use it to reduce your lap times. I’ve read through it and it explains the cause and effect of just about everything there is in relation to car setup however if you have any questions that it does not cover, feel free to ask in the comments section below and I will give you an answer!
