What tune is the best for this car.I have the D option.Please Help me.Post your tunes if you drive the same car.

Posted by: Macher TX Ranger Dec 23 2004, 06:28 PM
I used to be A Tune, but I switched to Normal Tune after I was Full Tune. The N Tune seems to accelerate faster - probably because it's lighter.

Also, A Tune is very stable, C Tune is very heavy, but is good on Myogi, but I'm not sure about the others.

Posted by: Knee Grow Dec 24 2004, 08:58 AM
Tune A then to B.

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 24 2004, 07:42 PM
If you go through inspection would you lose your engine,if you change the type package. If you don't then why would you want to change it.So is the D option good?Sry if im acting like a newb.

Posted by: eric_89 Dec 24 2004, 07:52 PM
Option D is said to be more drifty than the other options. When you go thru inspection, you will keep special parts even if u changed options.
For example, tune A has twin turbo, after inspection you change to option B, you will still keep the twin turbo but different body of course.

Uh... correct me if i'm wrong. Merry X'mas everyone!

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 25 2004, 12:01 PM
So lets say I go through Inspection I change from option D to A.Then through the next inspection I do option A to D.Do i still get the benifits of the twin turbo and the driftyness of the D option??

Posted by: eric_89 Dec 25 2004, 07:09 PM
No you don't. I think you only get the driftiness of option D...

*Edit* this sounds weird... I think i'm wrong...

You don't keep anything when you change tunes. If you switch from Tune A to Tune B, you lose everything - external parts and the twin turbo. It would be as if you started out with a Tune B FD. This also means that if you bought any parts from other tunes, such as spoilers, mufflers, mirrors, etc., then you lose those too.

By the way Dre, why would you switch from Tune A to Tune B?

Posted by: eric_89 Dec 25 2004, 07:27 PM
There were topics about FD's. And i think you will keep the twin turbo after you change to tune B. Only lose the body parts..

Dre probably preferred the body of B than A. It's supposed to help in.. well i don't know. Lol!

Posted by: ______________ Dec 25 2004, 10:25 PM
It looks a lot better than the other tunes!!

Posted by: eric_89 Dec 26 2004, 04:17 AM
It does? I don't know why i prefer the looks of A tune.. lol

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 26 2004, 08:20 AM
Well I guess your right what is the usually time on Akagi DH that is fast?

Posted by: Instant-Noodlez Dec 26 2004, 08:27 AM
a fast time is usually under 2'20"xxx

Posted by: PhantomaZero Dec 26 2004, 11:00 AM
I have A.

Posted by: Knee Grow Dec 26 2004, 11:16 AM
Trust me I knwo what I'm talking about you don't lose anything but EXTERNAL parts. Just like if you have a Trueno you don't lose the new engine if you switch from A to C for example. Just like you don't lose the Turbocharger in the V2 DC2 of you switch to a different tune after starting with A. Don't spout shi.t out cho mouth if you don't know what you're talking about.

Oops! You mean FD? I got 3.01 with FD

Posted by: Saito Dec 28 2004, 12:38 AM

I think I was running like 3'07 or so UH, but the car was barely BT when I TA'd UH.

Posted by: Saito Dec 28 2004, 03:10 AM
im running 3'03 uphill with FD

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 28 2004, 06:58 PM
I still have a few questions:

1.)If I started with tune D do I have twin turbo?If not then if I switch to tune A during inspection do I get the turbo?

2.)Which of the 2 do you think are better option A or D?

3.)Are the twin turbo stock?

4.)What happens when you go through a different course package?Do you still get the minor adjustments to the car?If you don't then when would you finish full tune?

5.)Sorry if I am being a newb,I just have alot of questions

Posted by: Saito Dec 28 2004, 08:58 PM

Yes you do have the twin turbo

2.)Which of the 2 do you think are better option A or D?


For me i like Option A...the original RedSuns FD!!!

QUOTE
3.)Are the twin turbo stock?


Yes they are....but Option B has the single turbo..

QUOTE
4.)What happens when you go through a different course package?Do you still get the minor adjustments to the car?If you don't then when would you finish full tune?


When you go through the different packages...u keep all the internal mods that have been done to your car...the only changes is the external mods....you will recieve each new part after every race

There is no need to be like that...everyone starts sumwhere...these forums are here to help people...so no worries

^ ANd witht that post, Chris sums it all up!

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 29 2004, 08:45 AM
Just one last question.

1.)What was the world record on Akagi DH for a FD?What tune was he using?

Posted by: Knee Grow Dec 29 2004, 11:42 AM
Check the version 2 IR..........

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 29 2004, 06:20 PM
Whats IR???

the world ranking should be around 2'12'xxx

i remember there was a member in the forum with the signature stating he did 2'11 with an FD......wat BS

Posted by: Knee Grow Dec 29 2004, 07:38 PM
In THIS forum?

Posted by: Ox1de Dec 29 2004, 11:24 PM
With my FD on turns should I use the brake alot ? And when it asks me to buy parts with points should I ?

Posted by: ______________ Dec 30 2004, 12:03 AM
What course?? And if you really like that part (or it is good) get it. I would wait until being FT before I get parts.

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 30 2004, 08:57 AM
I dont really care about this one but im just wondering do the parts you buy help your car??

Posted by: Knee Grow Dec 30 2004, 09:20 AM
Best way to "help" your car is to build it up with points/upgrades.

Posted by: Saito Dec 30 2004, 07:22 PM
yes that is correct...the best way to build up ur car is to wait till u get FT (990000 pts) thyen buy wateva u like after that.....coz if u start buying parts at an early stage it would take u longer to FT ur car.....

and yes maniakk.....the person was from this forum...he said he did 2'11...wat a blowass....and hes other times were even more ridiculous....happo were 2'11 as well...BS!!!!

Posted by: Trueno86 Dec 31 2004, 03:40 PM
Today I heard at my local arcade was better because it had single turbo instead of twin turbo.Then some other people started to keep challenge each other to prove them wrong.So I'm just wondering in overall time trials which is better?? The type R or Spirit R

Posted by: cappuccino_driver Dec 31 2004, 05:04 PM
type R i think

Posted by: 21mno Jan 1 2005, 03:41 PM
ok, I'm new to this group, and I just want to clearify some things i have read in this section. Don't mean to sound rude if you are thinking that now. When you go through inspection you change ONLY your external mods, nothing internal. So if you start with the Tune B and switch to Tune A or something you will still have the big single turbo. Also, you don't want that big single Turbo, I have driven Tune A, B, and C and B is the worst of the three. The turbo has too much lag when braking meaning that it seems to go away when you brake to much makeing it very hard to get back up to speed. Tune A is the best of the ones I have driven. Part changes offer you both good and bad parts, you have to know what ones to pick. The D tune muffler is the best offering better acceleration than any of the others, this is the Mazdaspeed muffler. A tune spoiler gives you the best handleing and acceleration, also MazdaSpeed. The A tune wheels offer you the best hadleing in dry conditions, mazdaspeed black, and C tunes offers the best in wet conditions, mazdaspeed gold. The sticker in A Tune adds 2% acceleration and top speed to the car. So if your top speed without it was 200, which it is probably more than, the sticker would add 4 km/h to that. The best hood is the C Tune hood, RE amemiya,offering the most stability and the lightest desgin. Finally the side mirriors in B Tune add acceleration and stability to your car. My opinion on the whole thing is decide what you want the most, better acceleration, better handleing, or something in the middle. My car is made up of a starting A Tune, and then part change into the C hood, D Muffler, and B mirriors. Lastly each tune offers something that can't be changed through part changes. For A tune it is stability, for B tune it is high gear acceleration, for C it is top speed, and for D it is low gear acceleration.

Posted by: Saito Jan 1 2005, 10:15 PM
now i dun want to sound rude but where did u get all this information from???

Posted by: 21mno Jan 2 2005, 09:33 AM
lol, I knew someone would ask me that. First place is that I work in an arcade with the game, and I play for free after closing. I got to test alot of the different tunes out and see what each has to offer. Second place is a lot of online researching in a bunch of different forums and Initial D websites. Hope the information helps as it helped me.

Posted by: Trueno86 Jan 2 2005, 09:43 AM
So you mean the parts that you can buy helps you in different ways?

Posted by: 21mno Jan 2 2005, 10:22 AM
Right, but some of them will harm your car, wou have to know which ones help and which ones don't.

Posted by: Trueno86 Jan 2 2005, 06:31 PM
I wonder if we add all these componets together than we could have a FD version of Taks Trueno grin2.gif

Posted by: Kev Jan 2 2005, 06:39 PM
If you checked the IR the world ranking in Ver 2 was 2'11 set by some guy in Korea driving a FD Type R. Don't believe me? Check for yourself. Unless he took it down of course.

EDIT: 21mno, it doesn't affect your speed. They can't legally let the parts change affect the speed. It changes the driving style, but that's all.

nicely said...most of the surfing i did had the similar information....parts will help ur car have different performances but wont really make ur car faster....but i do remember that i changed my DC2 muffler to sumtin (cant remember) and it gave me a faster top speed on Myogi.....

Posted by: ______________ Jan 3 2005, 01:23 AM
Yeah that's true. I changed my wing and it gave me a lower top speed (by 1km)

Posted by: Saito Jan 3 2005, 06:41 AM
so yeah...i think that maybe it can affect your top speed but other than that...really it doesnt make u faster...coz when in a map can u reach top speeds all the time...the only maps i know of are Usui and Myogi.....

Posted by: Kev Jan 3 2005, 11:49 AM
Performance, yea I suppose it does help, (Top speed, driftier, grippier, etc) but never faster or slower acceleration.

Saito, I'm going to start posting more in this forum, but not so much into the Ver 3 one. smile.gif

Posted by: 21mno Jan 3 2005, 12:04 PM
If you don't believe me change the muffler in your Rx-7 to the Mazdaspeed D-Tune muffler. This will show the most drastic change in your cars acceleration. Monitor you speed in and out of corners without it, and then compare it to the speeds with the muffler, much faster. Give it a try, you will see.

Posted by: Kev Jan 3 2005, 12:15 PM
Perhaps the reason you think it's going faster is because it changed the driving style to fit your own and you are able to corner better. Thus you have better accel out of corners. There's no REAL proof that it effects the accel.

Posted by: 21mno Jan 3 2005, 12:54 PM
yeah, that very well could be. Good Point

Posted by: Saito Jan 4 2005, 12:31 AM
hahaha...you tell him Kraz.....

Posted by: 21mno Jan 5 2005, 05:06 PM
after work yesterday I put in my Rx-7 with the mazdaspeed(D tune) muffler, and played until I got the chance to change to the Initial D Muffler. I ended up with a slower speed off the start, and slower acceleration on the sraightaways, not just cornering speed. In my opinion this prooves that acceleration is made better through certain parts, and deffinatley through the muffler.

Posted by: Saito Jan 5 2005, 07:49 PM
ok...so which part should i get overall then...i will try this out myself...give me a list of wat parts i should get

Posted by: 21mno Jan 6 2005, 01:31 PM
Tires: Dry; A tune,Mazdaspeed black
Wet; D tune, Mazdaspeed gold

Hood: C tune, Re amemiya

Muffler: D tune, Mazdaspeed

Spoiler: Top speed; C tune Re amemiya
Acceleration; A tune, Mazdaspeed.
Grip; B tune, Mazda
Drift; D tune, Mazdaspeed

Redsuns sticker; A tune, Initial D

Side mirriors; B tune, Initial D

I'm not 100% sure about the hoods, but they don't make the biggest difference, I have the C Tune hood.

Posted by: Kev Jan 6 2005, 05:12 PM
If you could try this out Saito that would be awesome! I'm rather busy myself. A lot of volunteer work and stuff.

Posted by: Macher TX Ranger Jan 6 2005, 05:26 PM
I've been Time Attacking Tsuchisaka, and I was asked to buy the D Tune GT Wing three times in a row. Does the course you're racing on help determine the parts change? If so, what should I do to get the A Tune Spoiler and C Tune Hood?

Posted by: 21mno Jan 6 2005, 06:09 PM
I've never seen any kind of pattern relating what courses give you what parts or anything like that, I think it's just random, and it's pretty much just a waiting game if you want to get specific parts.

Posted by: Kev Jan 6 2005, 06:35 PM
Perhaps in Version 3. I've never played it, so I wouldn't know. Not Version 2 though.

Posted by: Saito Jan 6 2005, 08:18 PM
when those parts come up i will try out those parts Kraz....and if i feel any difference than for sure i will let everyone know....

Posted by: RX-8 Pyro Master Jan 17 2005, 09:28 PM
is it just me or is it that the type r has worse handling than the spirit

Posted by: 21mno Jan 18 2005, 01:46 PM
you probably just like the way the spirit handles more then the type R. I think the Type R has better handleing. It's all in personal preference.

Posted by: RX-8 Pyro Master Jan 18 2005, 06:38 PM
thats true i guess

Posted by: Trueno86 Feb 13 2005, 08:15 AM

Posted by: Trueno86 Apr 27 2005, 11:57 AM
Where can I get the world record videos on akagi DH with direct download??

A couple of questions too:

1.) In the "V" turn right after the 2nd checkpoint should I shift to 4 or 3. I come out 135 in fourth but my acceleration is stalled.

2.) What stiffness should I leave it on? Right know its on 5

3.) How do you feint drift the first turn after the 1st checkpoint(The one after the straight)

4.) Last how should I do the 1st turn stay in 5th or shift to 4th??

Right now i'm doing a 2:18 any ideas to help turn it to like a 2:16??

Posted by: poKo Apr 27 2005, 04:14 PM

Ill try to answer you question as best to my knowledge...hope it helps...

QUOTE

Usually most ppl that i have seen play agaki with a FD, shift to 4th and brake really hard and turn...the reason that your acceleration is slow is either u hit the rail slightly, or that you braked to much that the speed was to low to be in 4th gear? so i think that u hit jus grazed the rail...maybe??? I usually do 3rd gear.....but i can do 4th as well.....

QUOTE
What stiffness should I leave it on? Right know its on 5


I have my stiffness on 3 (most players do) but it really all depends on the player...how they like the car to feel on corners....

QUOTE
How do you feint drift the first turn after the 1st checkpoint(The one after the straight)


The way i do it is.... as you are approaching the lil left turn before the big right turn....turn left but stay on the right side...as u are approaching the right turn....steer to teh left then hook it back right....release accel and then step on it jus before u exit the corner.....i exit at 155km

QUOTE
Last how should I do the 1st turn stay in 5th or shift to 4th??


If you are talking about the first left turn in Akagi...i do it in 4th...brake lightly then accell.....exit at 141-143km (feinted that turn once and did 145km)

I'm just thinking if we can only do about 2:18-2:15 on Akagi DH, then how do the world record holders do 2:12-2:11??

Posted by: Saito May 15 2005, 03:18 PM
they have a short line...well the best line....and there exit speeds are way faster.....

Posted by: Trueno86 May 18 2005, 05:15 PM
About how much faster???

Posted by: Saito May 18 2005, 06:11 PM
well im not sure...i would be lying if i gave u a speed...lol

Posted by: poKo May 20 2005, 04:54 AM
i say abt 1-2sec faster wif the better line....

Posted by: Sakura 300 May 21 2005, 02:40 AM
I was wondering how much of a diffrence does the single turbo make? Is it a huge disadvantage where it would really make you car worse then the othep tunes? Also, I figure it has to be good for something, right?

Posted by: Trueno86 May 21 2005, 05:29 PM
Well I tried akagi dh today and the only two points I had problems were:

1.) The "V" turn, I shifted to 3rd and grazed the rail. Im wondering when should I shift and brake. When I do it to early I hit the inside rail and when I do it on to late and right in the middle I graze the wall. Is it ether my timing of or im not turning it enough?

2.)The last turn before section point 4. I try feinting it and I hit the wall. Is there like a "mark" that like shows you when you to turn in and turn?

i think the main difference is start-up, wall recovery & cornering... thats about it i would think... not so sure myself unsure.gif blink.gif

I'm assuming you drive a FD type R?

For the V-turn, lemme tell you how i take it.

As soon as you turn into that short straight after the 90 degree right turn, double shift down to third, shift up immediately into third (before you even hit the corner). Your car should be at a controllable speed by this point.

Brake before the apex, let go during it, and accel out of it.

This way, the accelleration is usually super fast, and the cornering is not bad. I usually exit at 130-132 (if my memory serves me correct). You'll also gain your speed very quickly.

One last tip, don't touch the walls. Brake all the way to 120 if you have to, but don't hit the walls.

My way of taking the V turn is sought of similar to KrazFD's...

As soon as i turn into the right short straight...i quickly shift to 3rd before the turn. Turn slightly and brake lightly into the corner, you should be able to feel the car slide into the turn. Once you reach the apex of the corner, shift to 4th and accelerate...i exit the same as KrazFD....

Posted by: Trueno86 May 27 2005, 05:22 PM
Just wondering do you shift down once you turn right?? Like after the straight, the right before the "V" turn(basically the last part of the straight) you just shift down to 3 and break??

Posted by: Knee Grow May 27 2005, 05:32 PM
You need to to shift BEFORE you get to the turn, if you try doing it in the middle of the turn you'll experience what is known as "wheel lock."

Posted by: Saito May 28 2005, 02:28 AM
true...u have to shift straigh after that short right....if u do shift in the turn...u either wheel lock or understeer....making you hit the walls and causing you a slow speed pick-up

Posted by: Trueno86 May 28 2005, 05:35 AM
so you mean that once I hit the small right, I should shift down immediatly.

Posted by: Knee Grow May 28 2005, 11:02 AM
If you're talking about AKagi you should watch James' 2'15 vid, when you get to that you should go from 5th to 3rd then back to 4th.

Had a quick question. I'm thinking about changing my FD to C-tune at inspection, how is it?

Posted by: Knee Grow May 30 2005, 10:21 AM
I've only ever used B and A Tune so I couldn't tell you.

Posted by: Saito May 30 2005, 03:49 PM
well it should feel the same...wont effect ur TA as much...but to some ppl that play ID...they say that each Tune for a car has its own feel...meaning diferent tunes could mean better grip? more drift? or more top end speed? Just change Tune's and see if you like the new feel or even if u can notice the difference... Well im not sure really about it but i do know that the Tune D has abit better handling then Tune A...although i reckon Tune A has a better take off... and thats my 2 cents! =)

Posted by: Trueno86 May 30 2005, 04:41 PM
Saito did you finish your vids yet. Really want to see them

Posted by: Saito May 30 2005, 06:54 PM
nah sorry mate...been really busy....work so hard these days and have no time for it....i will let you know wen ive did it...hopefully ill get some this weekend....

by the way wat vids are you talking about? i forgot? are you talking about the akina, iro, happo or akagi?

Posted by: Shinryuu May 31 2005, 05:56 AM
New to ID Ver.3, I played Ver.1 when it first came out, then quit right after Ver.2 came out and when my card got eaten. Came back to Ver.3. I need a little help with my RX-7 FD Type R A Tune.

Anyway I have some questions and I can't seem to get any clarification from reading the posts.

I started out with A tune, I still have about 70+ plays and about 10,000+ points away from basic tune. What should I do after basic tune? Keep on playing my A tune till inspection starts? Don't buy anything right?

Once inspection comes, what do I do from there? I read so far that people go to A to B then to D. So you have to go through 2 inspections? What are the best parts anyway? So far I read something about B's mirrors, D's mufflers. And what is that secret rims?

If inspection comes, is it better for me to stick with A tune till I reach FT? Then start changing tune for my car? Or just follow the A to B then to D, reach FT somewhere in between, then start buying parts?

Posted by: Trueno86 May 31 2005, 11:32 AM
akina with the fd and if possible happo with the fd too.

Posted by: Knee Grow May 31 2005, 12:01 PM
1. Don't buy anything (cept maybe the sticker) until you reach 990k
2.Best way to start of the FD is to go from B > A tune.
3.Trueno86, what are you talking about?

Posted by: Trueno86 May 31 2005, 12:35 PM
what vids Saito asked about.

Posted by: Knee Grow May 31 2005, 02:54 PM

yeah dun buy anything till you reach FT.....and plus this post should be in the Ver3 threads...not here in the version 2

Posted by: Knee Grow May 31 2005, 05:35 PM
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. But I thought maybe this WAS for V3 since he was posting in here.

??? u say A --> B then mention single to twin turbo??? Tune A is the twin turbo..and Tune B has the Single??? lol....wat u talking about poKo

Posted by: Trueno86 Jun 3 2005, 10:57 AM
In bunta how many Level 30 buntas can the FD type r clear(like the DC2 can clear akagi, happo, and iro)? Also are possible for an average player like u don't have to have the world record to clear a couple of level 19-25 buntas.

P.S. pretty sure but if u change from tune A-->B then u still have Twin Turbo. Right?

Regardless of what happens, you are definitely not going to obtain all 120 stars because its phyiscally impossible to take down a 30 star Akina Bunta. I think The DC2 has come the closest with 110. And please define average.

And going from A-B should retain your Twin Turbo.

A Tune has a twin turbo (like Keisuke's) and B Tune has a single turbine (like Kyoko's). Going from A to B, you retain your twin turbo.

Posted by: Yan the Cappucino rider Feb 3 2006, 09:13 AM
I never saw keisuke's bodykit in this game there is only the a tune and some parts of the d tune that may look like his 4th stage one

Posted by: cyber_monkey91 Mar 13 2006, 01:46 PM
i thought you lose the engine stuff when you switch tunes...opps...because i just went through inspection with tune A on my trueno...i should have switched to D at the inspection...new engine and turbo smile.gif...but instead i was an idiot and i went to A tune...again

Posted by: APX Mar 13 2006, 01:51 PM
Why are you asking a toyota question on a mazda thread???

Posted by: cyber_monkey91 Mar 13 2006, 03:01 PM
because you guys were talking about if the engine upgrades still stay on the car if you change the tune course;....does it?

Posted by: APX Mar 13 2006, 04:03 PM
Try it?

Posted by: Takumi Fugiwara Apr 6 2006, 02:23 PM
i think A tune is best

Posted by: cyber_monkey91 Apr 6 2006, 08:42 PM
