Crew Motorfest allows players to customize and optimize their cars in a variety of ways. While the multitude of customization options can be overwhelming, once you understand the Pro Settings, you can improve the handling and speed of each car. Here are all the best pro setups for The Crew Motorfest.

How to Select Pro Settings in The Crew Motorfest
Tuning your cars will allow you to maximize their potential and adapt them to a specific surface or style of competition. The optimal setup won’t be the same whether you’re trying to use Speedtrap or Chase instead of Rally. Learning the basics of car tuning at The Crew Motorfest will not only make you faster, but it will also make driving more enjoyable.
Understeer and oversteer
It is very important to understand what oversteer and understeer are and how to control them. When you get to a corner and turn the steering wheel, your front wheels will want to turn the car to the side and your rear wheels will want to push it forward.
Although the physics here is more complex. than this, we can say there is a struggle between two forces : the front axle, which wants to turn, and the rear axle, which wants to go straight. Which one prevails over the other depends mainly on your car’s setup; While neither is inherently better, knowing how to recognize them and when to choose one is the key to a great setup.
If the rear axle wins the fight, the car will continue to slide forward even when the steering wheel is turned; this is what we call understeer . On the other hand, if the front axle wins, the car will spin out and the rear wheels will go to the side, which we call oversteer .

To enter the settings menu, select one of your cars and go to the far right button that says “Pro Settings” (first image).
Final drive is the only adjustment you can make to the gear ratio. A shorter ratio will sacrifice top speed for better acceleration, while a longer one will do the exact opposite. I always adjust this value to suit my driving style, but more importantly, I change it from competition to competition, providing better top speed on tracks with long straights and better acceleration on twisty roads. or rally .
When you reduce tire grip, you affect the equation we talked about when we discussed oversteer and understeer. By reducing the grip of your front tires, you give the rear axle an advantage over the front axle and thus cause your car to understeer. Going the other way will result in oversteer.
On drift or rally cars I prefer to oversteer, and on circuit or single seater cars I prefer to understeer to avoid tire degradation.
Brake balance also affects over/understeer by locking one axle before the other. If you shift the balance back, the rear wheels will lock up sooner and lose their fight with the front wheels, resulting in oversteer when braking. Going the other way will result in the opposite effect and understeer in the corner.
I usually use forward balancing because it gives my car more stability when braking. The braking force can be reduced for realism or if you find yourself locking up the wheels too quickly, but I always leave it at maximum.
<p>Aerodynamic components increase the air pressure on the car: the higher the aerodynamic load, the more air will press on the chassis and increase the grip of the tires, effectively pressing them to the ground. If you reduce the aerodynamics at the front, you will lose grip from the front tires and allow the rear axle to win the fight and understeer, while reducing the aerodynamics at the rear will cause the rear tires to lose grip and oversteer.
The car body shifts during braking and acceleration; Moving too much can cause the vehicle to become unstable. If you find yourself understeering while braking, it may be because your body weight is shifting forward; you can stiffen the front springs to reduce weight transfer and reduce understeer. The same thing happens in reverse with the rear axle. Keep in mind that on really bumpy roads you’ll need softer springs, while on paved roads it’s better to ride with a firmer suspension.
Shock Absorber Compression
This affects how the vehicle’s weight is transferred when you brake or turn. The higher the compression, the stiffer the car will be and this will result in a less responsive car. In general, I try to use that soft front end to improve steering , but if you feel like you’re bouncing around too much or it’s taking a long time to stabilize the car after a bump or turn, you may have gone too soft.
This works the same as compression, but comes into play when you start accelerating after a turn. Since they are related in many ways, you can play around with this and compression to find what works best for your machine.
Anti-roll bars provide axle stability. If you want to reduce understeer, you can soften the front ARB. If you want to reduce oversteer, you can reduce rear steering.
Camber is the vertical angle of the tires relative to the ground. If you set this up, the tires won’t sit perfectly perpendicular to the track, and you’ll play with the amount of grip: negative camber will give you better cornering grip at the expense of better corner exit grip, and vice versa. Depending on the competition, if the track has some twisty sections, I like to use a little negative camber on the front end.
