  1. I would suggest doing 28 for the front tire pressure and 25 in the back because the tires will actually grip the road so you aren’t spinning 99 percent of the time. Especially if you’re drifting the mountain in Horizon 5.

  2. Hey, I followed all of the instructions on here but there’s only one thing I have a question about, in the tuning portion of this setup, it says for the springs, Front:110 and Rear:80 but in the settings, or at least my settings, it doesn’t go that low, I’m just wondering if I am understanding the setup correctly.

    1. Hello Vincenzo, the stats above are UK stats. They use different measurements for UK and US versions of the game. So maybe that’s the issue. You can change the metric in the games settings.
