Getting your cars to be as potent as possible is a critical part of Forza Horizon 5. If you ever want to play anything other than the few greatest cars in the game, then tuning is going to be essential. Be it to improve your speed, steering, or anything else, you’ll need this menu. And you’ll be in it often! The tuning menu is the simplest and best way to upgrade your cars in Forza Horizon 5. If you haven’t found it yet, this guide will explain where to go.
How to Upgrade Cars in Forza Horizon 5
In order to access your tuning menu so you can upgrade your cars in Forza Horizon 5, you’ll need to head to your Garage. In the Garage menu, head to your “Upgrades & Tuning Menu”. In there, you’ll see a few options to add parts to your car or tune parts you’ve already added. You need some “Custom Upgrades” in order to access some tuning options.
The Garage can be accessed through your menus or by bringing your car to some areas. This tab is where you can see all of your vehicle options, as well as alter your vehicle. For instance, you can add your own personal license plate here.
The “Upgrades & Tuning” option might seem a little complicated from a glance. However, most cars follow a similar formula. Simply add the custom upgrade that you want to tune to your car, and then tune it from there. For instance, in the “Platform and Handling” options, installing Race Brakes will let you tune your brakes.
These tuning choices will let you adjust your car to make it as good as possible for you. This means that players who want a wider turn can build it exactly as they want it.
Once you have your parts, it’s time to Tune! The menu might look threatening, but it’s not too bad. Make minor changes to your car here, and then try it out in the field. In no time, you can make even the best drag race car feel even better!
The perfect tuning will depend on your personal preference. Try a few options and then take it for a spin!
