ACC Watkins Glen Setup: Porsche 911 GT3 R

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 quite good on the front and relatively loaded in terms of downforce.

We’ve put together a setup guide that will surely help you get your Porsche 911 GT3 R around Watkins Glen quicker than ever before.

Driving fast around Watkins Glen with the Porsche 911 GT3 R

For you to be quick around Watkins Glen with the Porsche 911 GT3 you’ll need to have plenty of traction as well as good rotation front to be quick in the changes of direction, like in the slow chicane after the back staight.

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

Run the front splitter at 0 and the rear wing at 12 and then consider going down to 10 to see if you can improve your lap times without hurting the balance too much.

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

For a qualy configuration, if you run aRB 4 on the front and aRB 2 on the rear it should be good enough to generate traction but without inducing too much understeer in the car.

The Porsche 911 GT3 R is ususally pretty strong in terms of downforce so you could focus more on improving the mechanical balance of the car.

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.
