Nascar Heat 5 Martinsville Xfinity Setup

Nascar Heat 5 Martinsville Xfinity Setup

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 Martinsville Speedway.

If you’re looking to crack into the mid 19s then you’ll want to make sure you get yourself a great car setup to give you the best chance to succeed.


You’ll want to run a negative 4.5 camber in the front right while a positive 6.0 degrees in the front left.

That positive camber on the front left will help you a lot with the initial rotation phase, whereas the negative one on the right wheel will increase the mid-corner rolling phase where there’s the highest lateral load on the tires.

You’ll want a pretty soft front swaybar around 1.435° since it will help you turn the car nicely on entry, while at the same time not sliding the rear too much at the apex.

It’s really key to not have too much oversteer in the car as it will make it difficult to stay on the proper racing line here at Martinsville.

In fact, you might even want to reduce the rear ride height a bit to minimize the oversteer in case you’d still get some.

In terms of gearing, you’ll want to run a 3 gears setup with a rear-end ratio of 5.43.

And also make sure you get yourself a nice draft as that can improve your lap time by a couple of tenths.
