Here are 2 poplar calculators used by many.

I prefer the ForzaTraders but try both as they each have pluses and minuses. You will need access to spreadsheet to use the calculator on ForzaMotorsport.net

The one at FM.net is the one I've been using recently, and I find it to be excellent. It gives you a great base set up, better than others I have used.

I'll give this a try, and see how it goes.

The Spreadsheet one is confusing and more advanced, but sometimes gives a better tune.. it's kind of half and half.

I use the Forzatraders one quickly to test a car, then i compare tunes to see which i prefer

At first I really liked the spreadsheet tuner, and had recommended it myself.

The ForzaTrader one has been giving everyone more consistent results, though, which is far more important than the random perfect* tunes I was getting from the spreadsheet.

*by perfect I meant they needed very little tweaking to get my silly cornbeef to manage them.

I was using the FM.net one there, but an older release. Some of the tunes it gave me had reallllllly soft suspension settings.

For me it's 50/50, the forzatraders actually seems to give me a faster tune, but the spreadsheet one from forzamotorsport.net is easier to drive and only just slower.
That's what i noticed when i compared the setups it gave me for my S666 GT3 Car

Something I didn't figure out til recently is if you click the A button in the forza traders calc you can adjust the settings parameter just like the other tuner and you only loose out on the trans settings which is really easy to figure out.

Any of the calcs will only give you a "base set up". I found many of the tunes from this one were too stiff for me. This is do to everyone having different driving styles, and liking the cars to "feel" a certain way. Once you start to see how your particular likes differ from the base set up, it becomes easy to adjust for your own style.

the one on fm.net does pretty well, except for the couple it gave me that the suspension was so soft i actually damaged the suspension by driving it. No
