Have you been looking around for the latest and best setups in Nascar Heat 5 for Iowa but struggled to find any good ones?
We all know how essential it is to have a great NASCAR Cup setup in NH5, especially in such a technical circuit as Iowa.
If you’re looking to crack into the low 22s then you’ll want to make sure you get yourself a proven and fast car setup to give you the best chance to succeed.
You’ll want to run a negative 3.7° camber on the front right and a positive camber of -4.7° on the front left.
That’s because the negative camber will have more effect on the lateral load transfer and grip at the middle of the corner while the positive camber will just help the initial turn-in phase.
You’ll want a fairly stiff front swaybar around 1.675° since it will help you turn the car nicely on entry without making the rear too unpredictable too drive.
It’s really key to not have too much oversteer in oval circuits like these as it will only cause you to lose confidence and ultimately lap time.
In terms of gearing, you’ll want to run a 3 gears setup with a rear-end ratio of 3.40 as you will need to maintain a high top speed down the straights.
