Have you been looking around for the latest and best setups in Nascar Heat 5 for New Hampshire 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 New Hampshire.
If you’re looking to crack into the low 28s 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 2.2° camber on the front right and a positive camber of 2.5° on the front left.
That’s because the positive camber will give you specifically the initial turn-in rotation while the negative camber on the front right will give you hold the support in the rolling phase of the corner when it’s leaning at maximum lateral Gs.
You’ll want a very stiff front swaybar around 1.875° since it will help you turn the car nicely on entry without making the rear slide too much.
It’s really key to not have too much entry-mid oversteer in circuits like these as it will only cause you to lose confidence and overall lap time.
In terms of gearing, you’ll want to run a 3 gears setup with a rear-end ratio of 4.11 as the track is not so long and with its relatively tight corners, you will have to lift off the throttle quite a lot.
Makes sure you to lift off very briefly, rotate the car and then get back straight on throttle launching maximum speed down the straights.
