Dirt Track Gladiators Basic Setup Guide

 

Engine

This setting changes multiple engine parameters to adjust the ratio and power of the engine. 

The lower you have this setting the less the wheels will spin and the slower the car's acceleration will be, however a higher top speed can also be achieved.

Increasing this setting will increase the speed off the line but will also cause more wheel spin and if it's set too high the top speed may be affected.

Finding the right balance is one of the key elements to getting good lap times on each track.

If you are having trouble keeping the car stable or in a straight line then lowering this setting will help.

 

Spring Stiffness

This setting changes how stiff the springs are.  

Adjust the settings between soft and hard until you find something that suits your driving style, most people won't want this to be too hard.

 

Handling Bias

This setting changes whether the car has a tendency to understeer or oversteer especially while turning. 

Understeering will cause the car to push into the corners meaning you'll have to work harder to get the car to turn into the corner and stop it going straight ahead.

Oversteering will cause the back end of the car to step out and want to spin around.

Finding the right balance that suits your driving style is key to getting good lap times on each track.

If you are having trouble keeping the car stable or in a straight line then giving the car more of an understeer will help.

 

Brake Bias

This setting changes how the car will react under braking.  

Adjusting the setting towards the front of the car will cause the car to push under heavy braking.

Adjusting the setting towards the rear of the car will cause the back end of the car to react more like a handbrake under heavy braking causing the car to get loose in the back.

Adjust the settings between front and rear until you find something that suits your driving style, if you use the brakes to set you up for the corner you might want to adjust this more towards the rear.

 

Max Steering Angle

This setting changes the maximum angle the front wheels of the car will turn.  

Lowering this setting will make it harder to turn the car.

Increasing the setting will make it easier to turn the car but can cause it to be too twitchy.

Adjust the setting until you find what best suits your driving style.
