A fresh drop of content from Coach Dave Academy which includes CDA3 V2 V1.8 updates for the Mercedes AMG GT3 EVO and Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO, along with updates for the Ferrari 488 Challenge EVO and Honda Wet Setup bundles.

This week from Coach Dave Academy, we have a diverse release spanning multiple cars and bundles, as we continue to work through both CDA3 updates and finishing off motec runs for previous cars. 

So what exactly is ready this week for release? Let’s take a look:

The Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO CDA3 bundle has finally been updated. What exactly have we changed from the previous 01’s and how did we achieve that?

The Ferrari is a complicated car in ACC. It gained a lot of natural speed when the toe changes first hit V1.8 and it suddenly made the car extremely fast due to it having a big negative toe range (-0.4). In recent patches with the toe being somewhat negated, the car went back to being quite unpredictable and difficult to drive on the limit. 

So our goal with the V2 update for this car was very simple: get the car to retain some of its lost rotation from the toe without impacting stability to the point the car got extremely nervous. 

So what have we done? 

To get some of the mid corner understeer eradicated we have generally stiffened the rear of the car wheel rate wise and adjusted the ARB’s, particularly the front ARB consistently. The front end of the car is generally the weak point once it has loaded up and so we really wanted to focus on that. 

Optimising the dampers to help the rear on power and then experimenting with differential settings were also a big target for us. Overall we feel the car is now much more responsive on the front end, especially from the mid corner phase onwards where we felt the car was at its weakest on the 01’s pretty consistently. This should now give customers much more confidence to push the car rather than having to fight some inherent push in the setup. 

These updates are FREE for existing Ferrari bundle customers and those who have an active subscription on Coach Dave Academy. Meaning you now have 01 editions that are slightly more understeer orientated and safe to drive, and now brand new 02’s that are aimed solely at providing you a platform to get top results in ACC races.

Important Note

Like with updates to the same version setups beforehand, these will be named Q02 and R02’s in your bundle. The only exception to this will be the BMW M4 GT3 which will be Q03 and R03, thanks to the aero map update that it received. 

The updated setups will now be available to download in your purchased bundles or if you are an ACC subscriber, they will be available to download now.
