McLaren MP4-12C '10This tune is for Côte d'Azur. I was asked to do a tune for this car at 473hp at 1350kg for a race event. I was unsure how this car would do at those stats since stock is has a lot more HP. It drove fairly well and didn't have any problems stock once I added the parts and tuned to spec. After that I began playng with the suspension, transmission etc and that's when it got tough. I just couldn't get that much better no mattter what I did. I took a step back and reworked some key areas and it started to get much better. The final problem I had were the brakes as it wuldn't stop very well than just slam dead stop. I originally raised them up thinking it would be better, but no I was wrong lol. Lowering them was by far the best thing I could of done and that's what really pushed this car over the limit. Very fast car at these stats and it actually works great at all tracks and is really mind blowingly fast for such low HP and heavy weight.

P.S. the pics are by FishyJuice he has some great photos if yout interested.
