Performance Tuning Help cheat for Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Performance Tuning Help

This isn't really a cheat, I just wanted to throw this out there. Performance Tuning can help a lot if you know how to use it. I'm here to give you the PERFECT STATS for any of your rides. I don't know what SETTINGS 1,2,and 3 do, so I'll need someone to tell me what those do. THANKS!
STEERING- 5 to the right *Improved turning sensitivity*
HANDLING- Unchanged *Chaos if tuned 5 to the right*
BRAKE BIAS- 3 to the right *Better for those clean E-brake turns*
RIDE HEIGHT- 5 to the left *Improved handling
AERODYNAMICS- Unchanged *Loss of top speed*
NITROUS- 3 to the right *Improved acceleration, slightly less duration*
TURBO/SUPERCHARGER- 5 to the left *More efficient acceleration out of corners*

One of the best tuning for Lamborghini Murcielago:
Streeng: +3
Handling: +2
Ride Height: +4
Aerodynamics: +4
Nitrous: +5 (Optional)
Turbo: tune it at +5 for fast tracks and -5 for when you need acceleration out of corners

This is what I use currenty for a fast response, good acceleration, and little to no lose of traction upon turning.
HANDLING: +2/+3/+4
TURBO: -5/+5

I advise +3 for HANDLING but you may find it too slow or too much and go to +4 or +2.
For RIDE HEIGHT I usually do 0 but you may find the HANDLING too powerful so you might want to use -1.
For the AERODYNAMICS I like to stick to the ground as best as I can so I dont flip on certain turns.
TURBO is very handy, at -5 when you hit something that makes your speed go from 4th, 5th, or even 6th gear at around 120-160+mph down to 40-80mph then drop gears to 3 and you will get a boost and be able to get to the 4th gear a little sooner. At +5 when you are at 4th gear and can get to 5th then you lose that speed and have to drop to 4th again you get a boost and get a chance back in 5th; same rule applies with 5th and 6th.

If you have the turbo setting all the way to the left (-5) the amount of turbo lag is just MONUMENTAL! so it only works if you are gonna be shifting up and down but if i's all the way to the right, it'll be really hard to maintain the RPM's up after 4th gear

ha ha this setup is fuuuuun, and the turning on a dime thing depends on your car, i used it on a tricked supra and it seemed pretty similar to what it was doing, and the lambo was perfect under the set up

I can tell you that if you press F1 on each item, it tells you what it does. So don't just tune like above and control by luck.

Steering: Faster Response -Slower Response, but the faster you get, the faster you over turn.

Handling: Smooth turn -Skid turn, skid is better if the track is narrow, otherwise smooth is good enough.

Break: likely trigger a skid -likely decelerate. Just what do you want break for

Ride Height: Will topple -improve handle, sacrifice some response. Formula 1 cars are low, but you need F1 tracks=)

Aerodynamics: Stick to the road, better acceleration, lower top speed. -Vise verse. Make some sense to have 5 Aero and -5 Ride Height if playing only highway.

Nitro: Efficient -Duration, Simple enough.

Supercharger: More acceleration when close to shift up -Evenly accelerated. 5 for this is chaos as you never reach numerical top speed. Your torque is not enough even to overcome friction in low/mid RPM of the last gear. -5 is not even a good idea as same thing happens in high RPM of the last gear.
