Have you been looking around for the latest and best setups in Nascar Heat 5 but struggled to find any good ones?
We all know how essential it is to have a great NASCAR Xfinity setup in NH5, especially in such a tricky circuit as Bristol.
If you’re looking to crack into the mid 15s then you’ll want to make sure you stay nearly full throttle all the way through the lap. Just a small lift when approaching the corner is allowed but you’ll need to go straight back on the throttle as the car rotates.
That will help you a lot by giving you a good drive out of the corners and not scrubbing too much speed.
You’ll want to run a negative 3.0 camber in the front right and a positive 2.5 degrees in the front left with a wheel lock of around 18 degrees
That high positive camber on the front left will help you a lot with the initial turn-in phase, whereas the negative one on the right wheel will increase the mid-corner grip phase where there’s the highest lateral load on the tires.
You’ll want a pretty stiff front swaybar around 1.675 since it will help you rotate the car while at the same time not unsettling the rear too much while turning in.
It’s really key to not have too much oversteer in the car since you don’t want to be forced to lift the throttle due to the back end stepping out.
In terms of gearing, you’ll want to run a 3 gears setup with a rear-end ratio of 4.71.
The draft here won’t be so effective but it can still be a good idea to pick one at the beginning of the lap.
