##Heading: The Basics of Tuning
Tuning in forza motorsport 7 is an essential skill that all players should learn. By understanding how to properly tune your car, you can unlock its potential on the track and make it suit your driving style. In this article, we’ll cover the basics of tuning and explain how to tune your Renault RS17 in Forza 7.

The Basics

First things first: make sure your RS17 is running the recommended Forza 7 tune. You can find this under the “Upgrades” menu in the “My Garage” section. If you’re not sure which tune to use, ask in the Forza forums or look for a thread about Renault RS17 tunes.

Once you have the recommended tune, it’s time to start adjusting it to suit your driving style and preferences. Here are some basic tips to get you started:

If you’re struggling with understeer, try increase the front camber and reducing the rear camber.

If you’re struggling with oversteer, try reducing the front camber and increasing the rear camber.

If you’re struggling with traction, try reducing the downforce on both the front and rear wings.

If you want to improve your top speed, try increasing the gearing.

There are many other ways to tune your car, so experiment and see what works best for you. And remember, if you’re ever unsure about something, ask in the Forza forums or look for a thread about Renault RS17 tunes.

Fine-Tuning Your RS17

Fine-tuning your RS17 is important to get the most out of your car. There are a few basic things you need to do to make sure your car is running optimally.

The first thing you need to do is check the air pressure in your tires. The recommended pressure for the RS17 is 32 psi in the front and 31 psi in the rear. You can find these numbers on the placard inside the driver’s door or in the owner’s manual.

Next, you need to adjust the camber settings on your car. The recommended settings for the RS17 are -2.0 degrees in the front and -1.6 degrees in the rear. These settings will help improve tire grip and handling.

Finally, you need to adjust the toe settings on your car. The recommended setting for the RS17 is 0.16 inches in the front and 0.14 inches in the rear. These settings will help improve tire wear and fuel economy.


After you’ve finished your hot lap and hit the brakes, you’ll want to make sure your RS17 is properly tuned for the next one. To do this, you’ll need to bleed the brakes and then check the pedal travel.

Start by opening the hood and locate the brake fluid reservoir. It’s usually on the driver’s side, near the firewall. Once you’ve found it, use a turkey baster or syringe to remove some of the old fluid from the reservoir. Be sure to dispose of it properly – brake fluid is poisonous if ingested.

With the old fluid removed, add fresh brake fluid to the reservoir. You can use any DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid, but we recommend using a synthetic Brake Fluid for optimal performance.


The supsension is one of the most critical parts of a car’s setup. The three main types are soft, medium, and hard. There are also race-specific suspensions that are very stiff and not suitable for street driving. Which suspension you choose will depend on your driving style and the track conditions.

If you are setting up your car for the first time, it is recommended to start with a soft suspension. This will give you the most grip and allow you to see how the car handles before making any adjustments. Once you have a feel for the car, you can start to experiment with different settings.

If you are driving on a smooth track with good grip, a medium suspension will be a good choice. This will allow you to take advantage of the car’s potential without sacrificing too much comfort.

For more aggressive driving or for tracks with less grip, a hard suspension is necessary. This will give you the best possible performance but can be uncomfortable to drive on everyday roads.


The RS17 isn’t the easiest car to drive quickly in Forza 7. The car is rear engined and has a very short wheelbase, which gives it some unique handling characteristics. The first step to tuning your RS17 is to make sure that you have the right tires. The RS17 comes with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires as standard, but these aren’t ideal for the car. Forza 7 features a wide variety of different tire compounds, so you’ll need to experiment to find the right ones for your driving style.

Once you’ve found the right tires, you’ll need to set your tire pressure. The RS17 is a very light car, so you’ll need to have your tires inflated to around 32 psi (pounds per square inch) in order to get the best grip. You can experiment with different tire pressures, but 32 psi is a good starting point.

The final step in tuning your tires is to set your camber angle. Camber is the angle of the tire in relation to the ground, and it’s measured in degrees. Negative camber means that the top of the tire is closer to the ground than the bottom, while positive camber means that the bottom of the tire is closer to the ground than the top. Forza 7 lets you adjust camber in 0.1 degree increments, so you’ll need to experiment to find the perfect setting for your car. A good starting point is -2.0 degrees of negative camber at the front and -1.5 degrees at the rear.


The transmission is an important part of the car, as it is responsible for transmitting power from the engine to the wheels. In Forza 7, there are three different types of transmission that can be used on the Renault RS17; manual, paddle shift and sequential.

Manual: The manual transmission is the simplest type of transmission, and is often the preferred choice for racers. It is operated by a series of levers and pedals, and requires the driver to manually change gears according to road conditions and their own driving style.

Paddle shift: The paddle shift transmission is a semi-automatic type of transmission, which means that it will automatically change gears for you, but you can also manually override this by using the paddles behind the steering wheel to change gears yourself. This type of transmission can be faster than a manual transmission, as there is no need to take your foot off the accelerator pedal in order to change gears.

Sequential: The sequential transmission is a fully automatic type of transmission, which means that it will automatically change gears for you without any input from the driver. This can be advantageous as it takes away the need to think about gear changes, but it can also be slower than a manual or paddle shift transmission as it may not always select the optimum gear for your current situation.


One of the most important aspects of the Renault RS17’s performance is its aerodynamic efficiency. The car has a very low drag coefficient, which allows it to accelerate quickly and maintain high speeds. To tune your RS17 for optimum performance, it is important to understand how the car’s aerodynamics work.

TheRS17’s aerodynamics are generated by two main components: the front splitter and rear diffuser. The front splitter directs airflow underneath the car, while the rear diffuser helps to extract air from underneath the car. Both of these components work together to create downforce, which keeps the RS17 planted on the track at high speeds.

To tune your RS17 for aerodynamic efficiency, you will need to adjust the height of both the front splitter and rear diffuser. The best way to do this is to use a wind tunnel. By testing in a wind tunnel, you can accurately determine the optimal heights for both components. Once you have these heights, you can then adjust the suspension settings on your RS17 to achieve these heights.

In addition to adjusting the height of the front splitter and rear diffuser, you will also need to adjust the angle of attack of both components. The angle of attack is simply the angle at which airflow hits each component. To find the optimum angle of attack for your RS17, it is again best to use a wind tunnel.

By testing in a wind tunnel and adjusting both the height and angle of attack of your RS17’s aerodynamic components, you can tune your car for maximum performance. This will help you to shave seconds off your lap times and give you an edge over your competition.


To conclude, the Renault RS17 is a very capable car in Forza 7. It is a great choice for both beginners and experienced drivers alike. With a little bit of tuning, it can be transformed into a real beast on the track. We hope you found this guide helpful and that you enjoy driving your RS17!
