Clutch

Clutch: The clutch sits between the engine and the transmission and is used to transmit and cut the driving force. If you increase the engine power through tuning, this clutch will slip and not transmit power to the drive train reliably. To prevent this from happening, you need to replace the clutch with a higher contact pressure clutch. Here, you can choose between 3 different types of strengthened clutches: the sports clutch, twin plate clutch and triple plate clutch to meet the characteristics and tuning level of your car.

Flywheel

Flywheel: The flywheel is a part that regulates irregularities in the engine rotation and maintains low speed torque. You can sharpen the engine pick-up and increase accelerating power by replacing the flywheel with a light-weight version. You can choose from a sports, semi-racing or racing flywheel to match the car characteristics and stage. If you combine too light a flywheel with a fine, small exhaust volume engine, you may lose speed on the uphills.

Carbon Driveshaft

Propeller shaft: The propeller shaft is the part on a front engine, rear drive car that transmit’s the power output from the transmission to the rear differential. Because this is usually fabricated from heavy metal, engine response can be improved by replacing it with a shaft made from carbon.

Driving Aids

Driving Aids Adjustment: Changes the setting of the ASM (Active Stability Management) and TCS (Traction Control System) that assist your driving. This can prevent under steer, over steer, spin, etc. at corners.

ASM System (Oversteer)

ASM Oversteer Adjustment: ASM is a device for preventing oversteer (motion that spins toward the inside) and under steer (motion that drifts toward the outside) when cornering by actively controlling the brakes on each of the 4 wheels. This setting controls the action of the ASM oversteer. Although setting this item to a large value will reduce the car’s tendency to oversteer and improve cornering stability, it will also make it more difficult to turn. Because this is a system that controls the brakes, you should expect to sacrifice some speed.

ASM System (Understeer)

ASM Understeer Adjustment: This setting controls the action of the ASM Understeer. Although setting this item to a large value will reduce the car’s tendency to under steer making it easier to turn, the car will also become easier to spin. Because this is a system that controls the brakes, you should expect to sacrifice some speed.

TCS Controller

TCS (Traction Control System) is a system that prevents the wheels from spinning on the road surface by detecting when the drive wheels are spinning freely, and automatically adjusting the car’s acceleration to compensate. The TCS Controller is a device that adjusts how much the TCS is applied. Although increasing the strength of the TCS will indeed stabilize the car, acceleration may become sluggish. For powerful front-engine, rear-drive cars, if TCS is not applied, the car may tend to oversteer under hard acceleration.

Downforce Adjustment

Adjusts the balance between the front and rear down force. If the front down force is strong, the car will tend to oversteer and if the rear down force is strong the car will tend to under steer.

Downforce Adjustment (wrench icon)

The force that pushes the car down onto the road surface as it is moving is called down force and has the effect of increasing cornering speeds and high-speed stability. You can adjust how this force is balanced between the front and rear by using the front lower and rear spoilers. In general, if the front down force is strong, the car will tend to oversteer (the front will rotate), and if the rear down force strong the car will tend to under steer (the front will push towards the outside of the curve). As the down force only acts at high speeds (whereas tire choices and suspension settings are effective even at low speeds) it is possible to fine-tune the handling characteristics of the car through a balance of these settings.

Limited-slip

The differential is the part of the car that adjusts the driving force between the inner and outer wheels when the car is turning. In sports racing, this differential may be a nuisance. For example, if the inside wheel lifts off the ground when taking a tight corner, the differential will transmit the majority of driving power to the airborne inside wheel. The Limited-slip is a device that prevents this from happening. Although Limited-slip usually comes in 1-way, 1.5-way, 2-way, etc. configurations depending on the direction of the driving force, here you have the additional option of a fully customized Limited-slip where you can adjust the application of the Limited-slip independently in each direction.

Limited-slip Full Customization

This allows you to individually adjust the initial torque, strength under acceleration and strength under deceleration of the Limited-slip. By doing this you will be able to change the characteristics of the car significantly. On 4WD cars you can also adjust the front and rear settings separately.

Initial Torque

Limited-slip Initial Torque Adjustment: Apart from cornering, where Limited-slip is fully applied, it also slightly limits slip in the differential at other times. The force applied to the Limited-slip in advance is called the initial torque. It is possible to change the handling of the car by changing this initial torque. Increasing the initial torque increases the response when Limited-slip is active, but makes the car harder to turn. On the other hand, a weak initial torque makes the car easier to turn but reduces the response of the Limited-slip.

Limited-slip Acceleration

Adjust the Strength of the Limited-slip under Acceleration: If you increase the strength with which the Limited-slip is applied under acceleration, the car’s traction (force driving the car forward) will be increased on the exits of corners. If the inside driving wheel spins as you come out of a corner, you can reduce the wheel spin by increasing the strength of the Limited-slip under acceleration.

Limited-slip Deceleration

Adjust the Strength of the Limited-slip under Deceleration: If you increase the strength with which the Limited-slip is applied under deceleration, the motion of the car will be stabilized on the approach to corners. In other words this makes the car harder to steer. This can be quite effective for a driving style where you hold off the brakes until the very last minute on the approaches to corners.

AYC Controller

AYCC: This is a device that improves cornering characteristics by controlling the torque distribution between the left and right drive wheels.

AYC Controller Adjustment

Adjusts how strongly the AYC is applied. If it is applied strongly, the car will generate a turning moment under acceleration making it easier to steer. If it is applied too strongly, however, the car will gain a tendency to oversteer and will be easy to spin.

Variable Center Differential

VCD: This is a variable center differential that can be used to freely change the torque distribution between the front and rear wheels in a 4WD car.

VCD Adjustment

You can change the distribution of torque between front and rear on a 4WD using VCD. The adjustment range is from 0 front 100rear to 100 front 0 rear. If the torque is mainly distributed to the front, the car will handle like a front-engine, front-drive, and if the torque is mainly distributed to the rear the car will handle like a front-engine, rear-drive.

Weight Balance

Weight Control: You can decide on the weight and position of ballast that is fitted to the car to correct weight balance. Although the fundamental rule is a 50/50 balance between the front and rear, you can intentionally alter this balance to change the handling characteristics of the car.

Ballast Weight

This adjusts the weight of the ballast. Although a heavier ballast is more effective at adjusting the weight distribution of the car, the increased car weight has a negative effect on cornering speeds, acceleration, braking, etc.

Front/Rear Balance

This adjusts the front/rear weight distribution by changing the position where the ballast is mounted on the car. For cars that are front-heavy, you should locate the ballast towards the rear, and for cars that are back-heavy, you should locate the ballast towards the front. Making front/rear weight distribution close to 50/50 will produce a neutral handling.
