ACC Watkins Glen Setup: Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo

Have you been looking around for the 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 tricky circuit like Watkins Glen.

This track has recently been introduced from the American Track DLC together with COTA and Indianapolis bringing a whole new challenge to the game.

All its slow to medium-speed corners are very technical and will require the car to be very reactive on the front and relatively aggressive in terms of downforce.

We’ve put together a setup guide that will surely help you get your Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo around Watkins Glen quicker than ever before.

Driving fast around Watkins Glen with the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo

For you to be quick around Watkins Glen with the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo you’ll need to have lots of rear traction as well as a very strong front-end to be quick in the changes of direction, like in the fast chicane after the back staight.

In addition to that, you’ll always want to run pretty high downforce as it will help you carry lots of momentum in all the medium-speed corners and you anyway won’t have to prioritize the top speed having relatively short straights.

Run the front splitter at 0 and the rear wing at 14 and then consider going down to 12 to see if you can improve your lap times without hurting the balance.

In terms of anti roll bars you’ll want to run quite soft in the rear in order to get good traction and lots of mechanical grip

For a qualy configuration, if you run aRB 20 on the front and aRB 0 on the rear it should be good enough to generate enough traction but without inducing too much understeer in the car.

The Ferrari GT3 is ususally pretty strong in terms of mechanical grip so make sure that you focus more on maximizing the downforce for the high speed corners.

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 get you faster lap times and pay really good dividends in your sim racing career.
