Have you been looking around for the latest and best setups in Nascar Heat 5 for Richmond 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 road circuit as Richmond.
If you’re looking to crack into the low 20.0s 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 of -2.0 and a positive one of 4.3 as this asymmetrical configuration usually helps a lot in these kind of oval circuit.
That’s because the negative camber will have an effect on the lateral load transfer at the middle of the corner while the positive camber will just help the initial turn-in rotation.
You’ll also want a fairly stiff front swaybar around 1.585° since it will help you turn the car nicely at the apex without making the rear slide too much.
It’s really key to not have too much oversteer in short 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 4.00 as you will need to favor a higher acceleration out of the corners in spite of a lowertop-end speed.
