Any good car setup websites out there?

I've seen many websites for Need for Speed car setups and I'm interested in finding a good one for Forza 4. Does anybody know a place?

The Storefront.

There's also the Forza 4 Tuning Calculator, just Google it.

So how does the calculator work really? I've seen a couple of apps on the iPhone but really have no clue what the heck to do..

And at the storefront is everything free or just some stuff. I'm sure there would have been hundreds of websites for this stuff if the storefront wasn't in the game

A Storefront makes it a million times easier. With website, you have to sit and look at your computer screen and then your television and make an adjustment, and you have to do it many times over to fill in a tune. That is just tedious and I don't know how fans of other racing games put up with that s***.

Not everything is free, but nothing is more expensive than 50,000 credits, and that's worth it considering the time that people spend dialing these things in.

Most of the stuff that's any good is free. But this game pretty much throws money at you, so that shouldn't even be an issue.

Oh, as for the tuning calculator, I don't know I don't use it. I buy tunes from reliable groups like Apex or Gearbox.

Some tuning setups are free and some cost money, but a lot of the ones that did cost money were still pretty cheap, like maybe 1,000 or 5,000 CR, which isn't bad. When browsing setups, look at the ratings for those setups. If you see one that's been downloaded dozens or hundreds of times and it has a four or five-star rating, it's probably good. I have downloaded a setup that didn't actually tune anything at all, however. Browse that player's Storefront to see how their other setups are rated, too. If they have several setups that are all highly-rated, they're probably good at tuning.

I used the tuning calculator (and now the app which works off the same scripts, from the looks of it, though aesthetically different) and they've done alright. They're just generalized setups, so they wouldn't be as good as a setup by a player that really knows what they're doing and setup cars for specific courses, but they work alright. With FM3 I did a bunch of tests at first, comparing lap times untuned versus tuned using the calculator, and I always saw at least a couple seconds of improvement with the tuning done by the calculator versus not tuning. (I should clarify that I don't mean "upgraded versus not upgraded", but "tuned versus not tuned".)

Buying tuning setups is faster and easier if you can find what you want. When the game first came out, many cars either had none available yet, didn't have them for specific classes, or didn't have any that were any good. By now I'd figure there should be plenty available. If using the calculator, you need to jot down notes on certain car specs to plug into the calculator. If you use the app, you can just do it right there in front of your Xbox without taking notes.

Yo guys thanks for all the comments. I will deff be looking out for some of the tuning setups from Apex & Gearbox that you spoke about Glitchwerks.

Thanks pjnelson too for giving me alittle rundown on the tuning app. Iíll test out one of them to see how that works in person.

Iím planning on taking some of the tunes I have done in Need for Speed Shift 2 and seeing how they translate over to this game. If anything Iíll keep you guys in mind and send you a message thru XBL and tell you how it turned out.

Thanks again and if any of you want to send me a friend request feel free to so
