How do i safely tune/drive an SUV without it rolling over?

#1Gamer_JC789Posted 4/5/2013 9:00:04 PM
Almost every SUV i've tried in Forza Motorsport 4 were great. they handled like they should and sadly...they rolled over like they should from my lack of knowledge of how to tune them.

If anyone could tell me a few tricks and settings on how i can avoid it from barrel rolling i'd be thankful.

P.S. i'm not new to GameFAQs. i just wanted to have a new username but the T-shirt sale just doesn't interest me...this and my username was a belated love for Forza's rival game which i stopped liking.

sell the suv and buy a car...

generally though its about getting it lower and making the rear a bit looser if the car goes into oversteer before tipping then you have a lot less chance of rolling.

Yeah what 3CDED mentioned is correct. Lower the suv as much as possible. Even after doing all that I roll my suvs over loads aha. Most of my crash damage credits are probably from flipped suvs, nothing like driving on 2 wheels in a big bmw x5, if you're still on 4 wheels you're doing it wrong lol.

I would guess its because you are a mediocre driver. I can drive every truck and suv without rolling over.

^nah I do it for the lulz. I only use the suvs offline or for tag, never races or anything like that. They're good fun though.^

the trucks are good drifters but the SUV's don't really get the points

Speed is relative. Floor it.

Race weight reduction, chassis reinforcement, all the adjustable upgrades and the biggest tires you can fit on it. Increased rim diameter if it's got really thick sidewalls like a Hummer. Don't need to bother with downforce on the biggest ones.

High tire pressure - at least 5 psi higher than what you'd use on a typical car.

Extremely high antiroll bar and spring rate settings - if in doubt, max it out.

Lowest available ride height.

Maximum downforce, if you're even bothering with a couple hundred pounds of downforce on something that already weighs several tons.

Short gearing, especially first (if it's heavy and turbocharged). Use all 6 gears so that you reach top speed in 6th, 1st is used to spool the turbo if turbocharged and 1(or2)-5 are optimized to keep it in the powerband as much as possible.

As for avoiding rollover, rollover occurs when the tires demand more steering than the vehicle is actually capable of. Use A LOT of negative camber, I think my most successful Hummer tune has something like -2.0 front and -2.5 rear. It kills tires but it works until they've overheated, decent for the short races you'll find in Career mode. Oh, and that's a grip build of course.

If you're interested, I might be able to copy a full tune out and comment on it piece by piece tomorrow.

Stiff on the high speed soft on the low speed should help alot with kerbs and chicanes, but this could cause some serious high speed 2 wheel action

easiest way to catch two wheels is the same as catching oversteer full opposite lock

if that doesn't work rip the handbrake to break the rear grip
