Have you been looking around for the latest and best setups in Nascar Heat 5 for Talladega 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 tricky circuit as Talladega.

If you’re looking to crack into the low 48s 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 8.0° camber on the front right and a positive camber of 8.0° on the


front left.

That’s because the positive camber will give you the initial turn-in rotation while the negative camber on the front right will give you lots of support in the rolling phase of the corner when it’s leaning at maximum lateral Gs.

You’ll want a pretty stiff front swaybar around 1.675° 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 2.80 as the track will allow you to reach a very high top speed above 200 mph.

Makes sure you stay full throttle staying up high in the banking as it will allow you to have more grip and have a better line for maximizing exit speed.

A draft will make a pretty big difference here, so make sure you get yourself one. You could even improve by 3 to 4 tenths if you get a really good one.

As always, happy sim racing! 🙂
