I figure out how to save multi-able tune specification per tracks per cars in the picture below, after saving a tune setup information you have to select a track or (track type) that the tune will applies too, if you don't select a track then your setup will not saved, With my Apollo I save it too all the (tracks) and and then restarted the game and it save my changes. So you can have a different setup per every track. not sure what the limit is.
Just getting started on car choices, what I plan to use, not sure if these are the best.
D class - Lotus Elise - 499 rating - hi flow filter, ceramic puck disc, quick change gears, race suspension, dual master cylinder, competion brakes
C class - Caterham - 999 rating - cold air intake, ceramic puck disc, race differential, quick change gears, race suspension, semi slick tires
C class - Audi R8 - 999 rating - engine swap, competition flywheel, race differential, quick change gears, race suspension, dual master cylinder, competion brakes
Not sure about the stats, I tried Lancer Evo IX and got it to a 6.xx handling rating, the highest of the 3 cars I tried, but it didn't handle better than a C class Elise or the C class Caterham I tested.
Jeff, if you get a chance, try the R8 4.2 as a Class C.
Added it to my previous post. Was thinking the semi slick tires would help more than that. The Caterham is a bit faster on tight tracks like Brands Hatch Indy, while the Audi R8 is faster on fast tracks like Road America. The Caterham's top speed is 152 at Road America, while the Audi was reaching 170 mph. Times were close with the Caterham at 2:13.9 and the Audi at 2:12.6. Don't remember the times at Brands Hatch Indy.
You could also try the Lexus IS F as a C999, and do an engine swap and just put upgrade parts on it. But be sure to change tuning, because the default tuning is terrible. Just put the slider bars into middle position as a starting point and it handles fine. It is fast on tracks were you can use those eight gears it has.

I haven't tried doing any tuning yet, just using the default tuning which is affecting my simple test results.
If the activation key isn't stored in an offline only savefile, I could create one with a lot of money so that players wouldn't have to recreate the cars and setups already in the save and only add to it. Then based on feedback the "master" savefile could be updated. I did create a test savegame for Shift 1 along with a text setup guide. Would be nice to do the same for Shift 2.
Note that such a savegame shouldn't be used online. In the case of Shift 1, initially there were no issue, but in patch 1.02 and perhaps after a change in the servers, players reported that the servers started grabbing offline lap times from the savefile, which polluted the players online stats.
In the meantime, we'll just have to post the car, parts, and setup info in this or other threads, and manually duplicate the cars in our own savefiles.
Managed just now to build myself a decent B-class R8. After a race yesterday where I was left in the dust on Spa, I decided to take action. Using Brands Hatch as a test track, my improvement was around 4-5 seconds.
So, Audi R8. -Engine Swap -Cold air intake system -Competition spec flywheel -Race diff -Complete bigger turbo -Race coilover suspension -Dual master cylinders -Competition brakes -Semi-slick tires -Weight reduction
Perhaps I could have changed a part or two, but I just don't have the patience to test for hours.
Edit: And for setup, I just turned the steering lock down to 19 (I think), downforce at max (8) and final drive at lowest (0). I didn't bother checking to see if various other settings would be quicker.
What I however DID bother to check, was to see how it would be like to drive without ABS. I've been using this assists almost from the start, but now I don't know why. I can brake much later without it. I also tried Stability Control, but I didn't really like it. Maybe I'll use it if I do the Endurance races. This assists helps me keep the car on the road, but I feel it inhibits me a bit when I want to take the corners aggressively.
I'm just got to B class cars in career mode. Some one already mentioned using the R8 for C class, but I guess you can have 2 R8s?
After my C class comparason of 999 Caterham versus 999 R8, at Road America with default setups. I tried tuning the R8 with max downforce and zero final gear (max acceleration), but it ended up being slower at Road America, and the Caterham seems better for tracks like Brands Hatch.
I'm not playing online yet, as I'm working on an offline career mode save for myself. So I'm not ready to work on the setups yet.

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): Haven't it been quite dead for a while now? It's really a shame, as back when this was awesome place to hang out, and, well. I did stop being that active here, as unfortunatelly I kind of lost my love towards Need For Speed games. It's a shame, really...

CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:36 GMT
Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.

Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
