Welcome to TDG, Tesuto Doraibu Garēji. Also known as Test Drive Garage.
This is where you can test drive awesome cars submitted by the community.
The point of TDG is to gain knowledge and help on tunes. It doesn't matter if it's drift or race, drag or touge.
With everything comes rules, as with TDG. Here's the list:

You are not allowed to change the tune (unless the person providing the tunes allows it).
If you test a car you will have to write a small review about it, the point being to make the car better.
You are not allowed to save the tune (unless allowed by the person providing the tune).
This is for BNB cars only.

Cars up for testing:

Garage K's Time-Attack A Spec Porsche GT3
Chia's NSX-R

I am entering my 400HP Drift Spec NA Supra for the coming weeks.
I'd love to get some critique on the tune as I'm a beginning Drift tuner and an experienced Race tuner.

Send me a message if you want to try her out!

For how long would you like to put them up?
And I'd rather have one car per person for now, I'd be glad to test either of them out!

Texas Chia's performance review of TRK's 400HP Drift Spec NA Supra

Over all thoughts
The car's tune appears to be almost left alone after the parts were installed, except for some modifications to the Camber, Toe, and Caster. the car transfers well, i didn't expect it to so because of the way its set up, i thought it wud be twitchier. i do believe that the long wheel base helps in keeping it smooth and easy to handle while transferring. for the amount of power it has it handles high speeds drifts very well, and can with stand low speed drifts aswell.

The car is great and is fun to drift, very cud for a entry level into either a points lobby or Tandem lobby.

Improving!!
This is just personal preference but i like a softer rear suspension, to allow the car to squat, putting more traction down. allowing the car to squat rather than keeping hard springs will help increase speeds, and with your current caster setting i dont feel that softening the rear spring rates will impair the transfer ability your car has. also the bump and rebound stiffness cud be a little softer for less smooth drift sections like Nurburgring GP and similar courses.

your gearing to me seems very short, because you have a race box in it, i recommend using a final drive higher towards the Acceleration (at least over 4.00), and then going and adjust the individual gears (I'd start with third adjust it to dead center and then playing with the other gear till they fit for both tight and long corners). but gearing is personal preference and i recommend using what works for you.

so to summarize soften rear spring rates, and all bump and rebound stiffness, to personal preference, and try using different final gear rates along with individual gear rates to improve both low end and high end performance.

i feel like a d--k making this long of review

@Chia:
Thanks for the review! I played around with the settings a bit but I feel that I get too much grip if I soften the rear up.
I'll play around with it some more :]

I'll test your 240SX this weekend.

Seeing not many people want critique or comments on their build I'll allow more cars to be entered at the same time.
Feel free to enter your S15 whenever you want, I'll be glad to test it for you and write a review.

I'll add my E36 tune if anyone wants to try it out?

Bare in mind it has 340hp, so clutch kicking is required. It will go without clutch, but wont pull third as good though.

@Texas:
I only received a 240SX racing tune which I reviewed.
Not sure if I received an S15 as well.. If you wanted me to review that just send it again and I'll do so.
Sorry if I ignored this thread before, I didn't see that there were new replies.

Seeing as I didn't reviewed the car in this particular thread, I'll write up a short one.

TRK's review of TexasChia's B-Class 240SX (Race)

Pro:

The car handles well and is a lot of fun to drive. Easy and predictable.
The tire pressures are set-up just about right.
I can't really say a lot about the setting you used for the suspension and ARB's because they look really illogical to me but the car handles alright.

Con:

Suspension set-up and ARB's.
Whilst the car handles very decent the suspension and ARB's are working against each other.
The balance between front and rear is a lot and you need to compensate that with the ARB's.
The dampening, especially the rear is set-up very strange to me.
Your bump and rebound is both at 3.4 which makes no sense to me as you want the car to squat at turn exit.
I usually set my bump at around 50-60% of my rebound, that seems to work.
