F1 2010 Guide to Tweak Your Car Setup

By   /   5 years ago

I got to say Codemasters have made F1 2010 a bit competitive considering there wasn’t any race in last game, that I didn’t come close to winning (Haven’t finished podium in this one though, in the last five attempts). I mean, it was overall easy game with most of the elements of the F1 racing.

But things are this time around with the new game engine. The game is overall competitive and immerses players into realtime Formula 1 experience, which is what everybody wanted.

Perfection never turns out well, seeing the long list of bugs, F1 2010 has encountered. Anyway, overall gameplay elements and great graphics have to count for something, and not to mention the competitive gameplay.

But hey, if you are having rough ride finishing podium ? you need to make the best out of your car in F1 2010. That is, if you stand any chance of podium finish,for which, you will need to tune your car according to track conditions to the perfection or nearly (that is for the career mode as you start off with a lousy team). You can refer to the guide below for assistance in setting up your car for different weather conditions on different tracks.

F1 2010’s Car Set Up screen contains a wealth of options that allow you to set your car up exactly how you like it.

Aerodynamics
Within this screen you can change the angles of your front and rear wings to either increase or decrease the car’s downforce. Increasing the car’s downforce will make your car slower on the straights but supply more grip in corners.Decreasing downforce will have the opposite effect, making the car faster on the straights with less corner grip.

Braking
The Braking option allows you to determine the balance between your front and rear brakes. In a FORMULA ONE car, the brakes are usually balanced towards the front, as weight transfer under braking places additional demands on them.

Changing the Brake Pressure will alter the responsiveness of your brakes, making them brake softer or harder depending upon your settings. This is especially useful for wet races, where using a softer Brake Pressure setting will help to stop the brakes from locking up. Altering the Brake Size will determine how quickly your brakes heat up and become more efficient.

The smaller the brakes, the faster they heat up and the earlier they become efficient. However, smaller brakes will overheat faster and become less effective towards the end of a long session.

Balance
Balance enables you to apply and move around ballast. The better the car, the more ballast you’ll have to play with and thus shape car handling. This will change the car’s behavior under braking, around corners and during acceleration.
