Who is actually doing the cars setting ? I mean how the brake balance , ride height , spring rate ... should be tuned ?

Is it by the Aces (Takumi and Keisuke) themself or by Ryosuke ?

Well i doubt Takumi would fix his own 86 and Keisuke could fix his RX7. Besides both Takumi and Keisuke got their own personal mechanics thnks to Ryosuke and remember since Takumi is in Project D basically his mechanic is the one that is doing all the tuning but that mechanic s awesome and even Bunta is amazed that he has never seen the 86 in such great shape.

Well Ryosuke is the brains of the whole time, he basically comes up with the strategies and stuff and choose which of the 2 Aces (Takumi and Keisuke) they should race against who. Takumi is the downhill specialist so he races opponents who go downhill and Keisuke is the uphill ace so he races uphill to those who race uphill too.

Answer..spoilerssss for ep 5&6






There was a quote from ep 5 where it says that the mechanics took overs to tune the cars during the practice but no one can tuen it properly

but when Ryosuke woke up, it was tuned right away

Dont know what he said laugh.gif but from what i understand

Both takumi and keisuke have their own little monkeys. They make practice runs, and decide from there how to tune the vehicle, building it around the preferences of each driver.

Yeah in episode 5 you see the guy with long hair (kinda like Miki - Celica GT4 guy) tuning Keisuke's car and the other guy with hair kinda like Bunta tuning Takumi's car. remember during their practice runs that guy sat next to Takumi with a laptop. I suppose what Ryosuke does it look at the course and their practice runs and tells the mechanic how to tune their cars so it runs best on this course. And since Ryosuke was asleep they didn't know what to do.

Jeeze, those mechanics were at every race. Why do you think they brought those vans? Car pooling friends to watch?

The mechanics do the manual labor while Ryosuke tells them what to do.

The mechanics are probaly the RedSuns mechanics. The ones fixing Keisuke's car in the first race in the first stage. Takumi probaly get's his car tuned from them and Ryosuke as well.

two people work on the cars, one mechanic for each car. They ride with them and see how the car is adjusting to the course and fine tune it from there. In ep 1 (i think all my eps got deleted cause my hd crashed) the mechanic rides with takumi.
