Suspension Tuning in Forza Motorsport

Learn how each part of the suspension affects handling. After this course you will be able to fine-tune your setups for better lap times.

The Challenge with Suspension Tuning

If you ever tried tuning you know there's a lot to consider and no two cars are quite the same. Maybe you spent time reading the detailed explanations inside Forza's tuning menu – only to feel like you're still missing some bits and pieces.

Or maybe you know tuning can give you a big advantage but you've never tried before. In either case you are in the right place!

Introducing an Easier Way to Learn

Our goal is to show you how to make great handling cars whenever you want in Forza Motorsport.

It's not magic. It's simply a matter of knowing what's going on behind the scenes.

In this free course, Dave Lacey takes you on a tour of each suspension component and explains how changes in the tuning menu affect the car.

After completing this class you will be able to make adjustments to stock tunes, and fine-tune base setups provided by apps like ForzaTune. Your cars will be a joy to drive - and give you that extra edge.

What to Expect

After enrolling you will have access to all of the video lectures.

We start with a quick introduction and then jump into the three main sections: setting tires and alignment, controlling weight transfer and enhancing grip.

At the end of the course you can also download a tuning checklist to help you remember everything you learned, and ask questions in the comments section.
