Have you been looking around for fastest setups in Assetto Corsa Competizione but struggled to find any good one?
We all know how essential having a great GT3 car setup in ACC is, especially in such a high demanding track like Circuit of the Americas (COTA).
The American circuit is home to some of the most challenging corners in the world of motorsport, especially the fast esses of sector 1 where you’ll need to cut the kerbs perfectly to gain time.
This means that every little detail matters when it comes to setting up your GT3 car for success here.
We’ve put together a setup guide that will surely help you get your Aston MArtin V8 Vantage GT3 around COTA quicker than ever before.

Driving fast around COTA with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT3
For you to be quick around COTA with an Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT3 you’ll have to run medium to high downforce in order to be really fast in the esses of sector 1 & 2 while still carrying some good speed onto the two main straights.
If you don’t mind feeling a low amount of grip on the high speed corners, then you could reduce the aero downforce even more to gain some precious top speed and therefore time down the straights.
We’d recommend going from 10 to 8 on the rear wing and going to 0 on the front splitter.
In terms of roll bar you’ll want to run quite relatively soft overall in order to get good mechanical grip and traction out of the corners, which is crucial around here.
That will also help you jumping the apex kerbs at full speed without unsettling the rear of the car too much.
Front aRB 5 and Rear aRB 5 should be good enough to generate traction without getting too much push-understeer.
Having said that, once you’re setup is good enough, make sure you then spend some days relentlessly practicing and improving your driving.
That will pay great dividends in your sim racing career.
