Hi everyone,

Currently I am developing some parts and I have a question about the "Finetune" characteristic in the development screen. In my understanding it says something about how well a part fits to your chassis and it will improve over time if the underlying rating is good.

The wiki says the following:

Every part is designed for a specific chassis (as can be chosen when it's being developed). This doesn't mean that it won't be able to be mounted on other chassis, but it means that it will be made specifically for that chassis. The fine tuning characteristic looks at how well the parts work together. The chassis that it was built for has a certain way of how it is on track, and when parts are developed they have a way of how they work as well. With every iteration the parts will get closer to the chassis. That way the more iterations there are for each part, the more the car will work together as a whole.



But sadly it's still not clear to me what performance benefits my car gains for this. Why should I pick Finetune during develpment if I could also add guaranteed performance?

I hope someone can help me out, thanks in advance!

Hi Harry,

I've been playing this game quite a long time now and also have no idea about how potent finetune is, as it is very hard to quantify the time gained. I'd suggest just try it out and see what works best for your team.

Not sure if other managers have a better understanding of finetune, but I think there is not a simple "right or wrong" answer to give here.

Hope that somewhat helps, even if I wasn't able to answer your question :)

I tried fine tune on a part and it does nothing, part not better, not worse no matter if conservative, normal, agressiv or if failed or sussess. all it does is cost point and make reveal kilometres low

Hi Lukas and Ali, thanks for your replies. It seems it will remain a mystery for now. I hope perhaps Frank could shine some light on this for us.

Hi Harry, it definitely does have an effect, although as the others said it is quite limited. It should be balanced out a bit more in the future, I agree.
