how to tune csr2 car tire pressure csr 2

The original CSR Racing was all about finding the Perfect Shift Pattern (and occasionally getting a little help from your mechanic).

CSR2 is all about doing all of the tuning yourself so YOU can control your car’s optimum performance under different racing conditions.

There are three tuning options that are available in CSR2:

  • Nitrous (Nitrous Oxide)
  • Transmission (Final Drive)
  • Tires (Tire Pressure)

You should change your tuning settings every time you install a new upgrade and depending on the type of race;  1/4 mile or 1/2 mile.  This is imperative if you desire to defeat the various crew bosses and their crews.

How to tune your car for 1/4 mile races:

How to tune your Nitrous:

This tuning option allows you to control the duration and intensity of your nitrous injection for optimum performance under different race conditions. First conduct a test drive to establish a baseline. Then purchase a diagnostic. For 1/4 mile races you want a short burst and a very high bhp. Set your Nitrous Oxide to the somewhere around 137 BHP and 2.5 seconds (depending on your car). Your goal should be to get your 1/4 mile time as low as possible.

How to tune your Final Drive:

This tuning option allows you to control the transmission gear ratio for maximum performance under different race conditions. For the best 1/4 time and 0-60 mph time you want to set it somewhere just past the middle of the scale. I have mine set to 4.18 for my Tier 3 BMW M4. Keep checking your diagnostic report to achieve the best results. It will differ for different cars so you may want to check before entering different races. If you notice that the races are becoming more challenging (and trust me you will) that’s an indication that you may need to adjust your settings.

How to tune your Tire Pressure:

This tuning option allows you to control the acceleration and grip for added performance in the 1/4 mile. This is a short race so you want the right balance between acceleration and grip to ensure that you get off to a faster start than your opponent. Basically, you want more grip to minimize wheelspin so you can apply the Nitrous as early as possible. Again, the setting depends on the car and the upgrades that have been installed, but for my Tier 3 BMW M4 I set my tire pressure to 14 PSI. Once you establish an early lead it is almost impossible for your opponent to win no matter what he has under the hood.

How to tune your car for 1/2 mile races:

How to tune your Nitrous:

This tuning option allows you to control the duration and intensity of your nitrous injection for optimum performance under different race conditions. First conduct a test drive to establish a baseline. Then purchase a diagnostic. For 1/2 mile races you want a longer burst and a slightly lower bhp. The reason for this is you don’t want to use up your energy too quickly…you want to save some for after the halfway point. Your goal should be to get your 1/2 mile time as low as possible.

How to tune your Final Drive:

This tuning option allows you to control the transmission gear ratio for maximum performance under different race conditions. For the best 1/2 time and 0-100 mph time you want to set it somewhere toward the low end of the scale. Keep checking your diagnostic report to achieve the best results. It will differ for different cars so you may want to check before entering different races. If you notice that the races are becoming more challenging that’s an indication that you may need to adjust your settings.

How to tune your Tire Pressure:

This tuning option allows you to control the acceleration and grip for added performance in the 1/2 mile race. This is a longer race so you want the right balance between acceleration and grip to ensure that you get off to a good start. I recommend a tire pressure of 25 PSI or above (again, it depends on the car). Once your wheelspin stops you can deploy your nitrous and pull away from your opponent and enjoy the glorious CSR 2 scenery whilst cruising to a much assured victory.

  10. Meekah says:

    I run a dyno and it gives me a 1/2 mile time that is just impossible for me to get if I perfect launch and shift all the way through. Totally stumped as to how I get to that figure?!

  11. Jason says:

    Hi Roland, i have a 488 on CSR2 with 5 stage 6 parts, is there a certain setup i need to win shaxs car

    • Roland Bonay says:

      Hi Jason,

      If you have 5 stage 6 parts I would think your 488 has a high rating and you should be able to win shaxs car with little effort. Unless of course I don’t know what I’m talking about because I only have 2 stage 6 parts on my 488 which have not been enough to allow me to beat him. My current 488 rating is 701. Any tips on how to get more stage 6 upgrades will be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      • Jason says:

        the strange thing was i was tuning my huracan when i kept getting Stage 6 parts for a 488, several months later i was showing a friend my cars and realised i had a 488, so i abandoned the huracan and started work on the 488. all i need is 2 more Stage 6 parts then i have them all, then i can sort out the fusion parts after.

      • Drew says:

        To get more fusion an stage 6 parts u can go purchase that same car an strip it I’ve gotten stage 6 parts that way b4

        • Roland Bonay says:

          Hi Drew…can you explain this process in greater detail?

          • Lugnutz93 says:

            Say you have viper that you won and are having trouble getting stage 6 parts or fusion parts.. If you go buy another viper, you can pay 50,000 or however much to strip it which will give you viper fusion parts and likely a stage 6 parts as well that you can now place on to your original viper that you’ve been building forever. You can strip any dodge car for fusion parts and they will.work for viper. As long as they are the same manufacturer. Doesn’t work for stage 6 though.

          • Roland Bonay says:

            I have to try this for my ferrari spyder so I can finally beat Mr Stax…thanks for the tip!

  12. jason mowen says:

    Its very odd but they made the games tuning complicated for a reason so not everyone would have to exact same timed cars… some cars go faster with stage 4 intake than with stage 6…. too much tire spin with the extra power u hve to test and tume play with what parts are on the car all stage 6 might not be the best for times just max hp

  13. RWK says:

    Hi,

    I am new to this game.
    There were crap loads of Stingray running 8s quarter mile.
    1)How did they manage to get this sort of time for a T3 car?
    2)Why did the system put me to run with these super T3 car (Stingray)in live race where my Ford Mustang GT can only do 9.5s
    3)Max the EVO points doesn’t necessarily the best performance in 1/4 or 1/2. Is this correct?
    4)How to tune the car to perform best in 1/4 and 1/2 race if not relying on the EVO points?

    Please advise. Thanks

    • Roland Bonay says:

      I don’t understand the live races any more. Maybe the hackers have an edge…I don’t know for sure…just saying. I tend to stick to the other (non-live) racing events. Thanks for your comment!

    • Jeremy says:

      Tier 3 cars that perform like that either 1 have stage 6 parts and a bunch of Fusion parts or two they were won from the rare Imports and are a rare car meaning you can fit more Fusion parts to them making them just to sleep faster then there non rare counterpart. Don’t Focus so much on tier 3 Tier 1 2 and 3 are quite boring once you get into tier 4 and 5 that’s when the game gets real fun. Just remember keep racing keep fusing and keep tuning eventually when you get that rare tier 5 car you’ll start earning stage 6 upgrades and by then hopefully you had it sold all your Fusion parts and you confuse it giving you the edge on any AI race and you can definitely be a contender in live races.

    • Drew says:

      They must have stuck u in a class where they have done some fine tuning along with lots of fusion parts

  14. CrashingTiger says:

    You absolutely do NOT need to buy the super nitrous to win the boss cars. A little luck with a stage 6 part or two and fusion parts will get you the wins. I won every boss car but the tier 4 boss (I blew that race. Oops.) And I did it without spending a dime. It just takes time because you have to win a number of other races to get the parts you need.

    • Roland Bonay says:

      Thanks for this reponse. It’ll help people who want to win boss cars without spending real cash on super nitrous.

      • 1337Pwnzor says:

        I am officially stuck in T4…
        I’m stuck to the point where I was able to buy the 570S without beating the final two races for T4. (no really)
        Bought the Vanquish (645+297), and now I regret it. Only have stage 6 nos, and the Aston is running 14.0-14.2 1/2, few tenths short of 13.9/13.8. Oh boy.

  15. Kunwar Zaid says:

    hi…i am using T-2 A 45 AMG kindly help me in tuning…Power of my car is 455.

  16. YP FONG says:

    I m using a lamborghini aventador lp 700 and i fully upgrade it… All parts are stage 5 except air intake is stage 6…but my car rating is just 702…so what could i do?

    • Roland Bonay says:

      All you can do is continue winning keys and opening crates and winning the daily mystery race until you win the remaining stage 6 parts for the aventador. It may take a while…I’ve been trying for 3 months to win extra stage 6 parts for my Ferrari 488 Spider. Good luck!

  17. 1337Pwnzor says:

    Are the boss cars worth getting like before, or not anymore? I have the T1 boss car, but with the new stage 6 upgrades I’m suddenly not so sure on getting those.
    On a side note, can you share your tunes for your T1-T5 cars? Would be really helpful, just like how you did in CSR1. Thanks! – 1337Pwnzor

    • Roland Bonay says:

      Not anymore. It takes at least 2 stage 6 upgrades and the $5 special nitro to win a boss car and if you make a tiny mistake you end up losing the race and the $5 you paid for the nitrous. I’ll share my tunes over the course of the next few days. Thanks for stopping by!

      • 1337Pwnzor says:

        Well, dayum. Was planning to get all boss cars, cause the T1 boss car helped out in some events and I figured it’ll be the same for T2-T5.
        Also, I was interested to have some sort of “best cars for Tier n” like before, but I realized that’s out of the question because of new mechanics like stage 6 upgrades, fusion parts, tuning, and limited cars.
        And yes, I discovered this page because of CSR1, lol
        Great site!

      • 1337Pwnzor says:

        I don’t know how, but I managed to win Ashleigh’s CLA 45 AMG on just stage 5 upgrades and no $5 nos. Maybe that rule only applies to T5? I’m not sure.

        • Roland Bonay says:

          You beat her because you raced a perfect (or near perfect) race. I find it easier to hit the optimal shift points in T1 thru T3 but it gets much more difficult in T4 and T5 – there is just no room for error at those stages. I’m betting you’ll be going after all the boss cars and I’d like to know the results so please come back and let me (and everyone else) know how it goes.

          • 1337Pwnzor says:

            Well, I am going after all five boss cars, because they are good cars for some events that require certain parts to be at a certain stage. Like one event I had recently, where the req is T2 car with stage 5 intake. I don’t want to dump my money on a single part that gives minimal gains. But luckily I had the T1 boss car, which is classed as T2 and has stage 6 bits all around. So, that helped win more cash (and 90 gold, gold cup I think).

          • Roland Bonay says:

            I have a feeling you can win all of the boss cars. Good luck!

          • 1337Pwnzor says:

            Sure hope so, thanks! Still stuck in T3, wondering which is the best cash car.

            In case anyone is interested, I have the boss cars’ times that you need to beat for a sure win. Well, for T1 and T2 which are 1/4 mi races, aside from T5’s sub 11.9s 1/2 mile. Also have the tunes I used, although in that case both cars had a minimum of 5-6 fusion parts.
            You can hit me up ingame as well, under the name 1337HammerTime.

          • 1337Pwnzor says:

            Well, just got Kurtz’s Mustang HPE750, and I found it quite average really. The gearing isn’t too bad, except for the 5th and 6th gears. They’re too long. Well the real challenge starts, tuning for the half mile races. As always, I have the time one needs to beat for the car, and the tunes.

      • Big T says:

        I did it all, got my 6’s, bought the nitro, drove the perfect race…..and still lost to #5 boss…rip off.

        • Roland Bonay says:

          It can be frustrating. That’s why I no longer buy nitro. And I no longer participate and bet in live races. The game is still OK if you focus on the events that do not require purchases. Thanks for commenting.

          • 1337Pwnzor says:

            T1 boss car: KJ’s Toyota 86 RB
            Time to beat: 13.391 (!/4, tested twice)*
            T2 boss car: Ashleigh’s CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake
            Time to beat: 12.015 (1/4, tested twice)**
            T3 boss car: Kurtz’s Mustang HPE750
            Time to beat: 10.589 (1/4)**
            T4 boss car: Victor’s Project 7
            Time to beat: 14.1xx (1/2, stuck)***
            T5 boss car: Shax’s Agera R
            Time to beat: 11.912 (1/2)****

            Notes:
            * – As long as car is maxed with a few fusion parts + tuning, it’s an easy 20g and a free car
            ** – required/requires at least one stage 6 part and few parts + tuning + (near)perfect race
            *** – minimum of 2 stage 6 parts and probably 20% total fusion parts + (near) perfect race
            **** – Just like what many people (and Roland) said, get the car which you have the most stage 6 parts for. Minimum of 3 stage 6 parts + lots of fusion parts (25% and up) + tuning + concentration.

            Special Note: The 11.912 1/2 time for Shax’s Agera came from someone on pocketgamer(dot)co(dot)uk, while the 14.1xx bit is just me guesstimating, as I haven’t beat Victor and got his car (yet).

            There you have it, a breakdown on the boss cars’ time to beat in order to get a free car (and not lose some g’s). Sorry for long post lel

          if you do “good” shifts sometimes you can make your times faster

    Hello,

    if you can help me on on Mclaren p1 csr racing 2

    Need shift pattern & tune

    upgrades 41 / 42
    fusion 110 / 128
    713 / 1086

    Race 1/2 miles
    dyno 9.718
    top speed 233

    what i could do for now is like 10.25 for 1/2 miles

    • Roland Bonay says:

      Sorry Saad,

      I do not own the McLaren P1 so I can’t help you with shift pattern or tune. Maybe someone else will provide an answer, or better yet I will ask around and get back to you very soon.

      • saad says:

        Well the game is very amazing actually LaFerrari 1/2 mile now doing 8.6 to 8.8 i saw many people doing it i have one also 42/42 & 122/128 fusion parts and i cant go below 9.6 and their top speed comes like 300 mph. Trying to do various changes but no major diff evo at 1395.

        Any suggestion on that
