Our Plan For The America DLC Release

A fresh drop of content from Coach Dave Academy which includes CDA3 V2 V1.8 updates for the BMW M4 and Continental GT3 along with our plans for the America DLC release.

For this week’s release in ACC, the team have worked extremely hard to get both cars, the BMW M4 and the Continental GT3, ready and finished before the America DLC release. We are pleased to confirm that ALL tracks for both cars have now been updated. 

BMW M4 GT3 CDA3 Updates

The following tracks now have updated CDA3 setups: 

  • Barcelona
  • Misano 
  • Silverstone
  • Hungaroring
  • Donington Park
  • Paul Ricard
  • Nurburgring
  • Suzuka
  • Spa
  • Kyalami
  • Zandvoort
  • Zolder
  • Brands Hatch
  • Laguna Seca 
  • Imola
  • Monza
  • Oulton Park
  • Snetterton
  • Mount Panorama 

Continental GT3 CDA3 Updates

The following tracks now have updated CDA3 setups: 

  • Barcelona
  • Misano 
  • Silverstone
  • Hungaroring
  • Donington Park
  • Paul Ricard
  • Nurburgring
  • Suzuka
  • Spa
  • Kyalami
  • Zandvoort
  • Zolder
  • Brands Hatch
  • Laguna Seca 
  • Imola
  • Monza
  • Oulton Park
  • Snetterton
  • Mount Panorama 

For both cars our main focus was to improve the driveability and stability at medium and low speeds. The Bentley in particular struggles with it’s torque delivery and some setups were a tad too aggressive when it came to traction off of the slow stuff. Something we wanted to address. 

The BMW is quite restricted when it comes to geometry changes and so work on the wheel rates, and damping was of importance to us. The car is inherently unwilling to rotate too much, but the power delivery is very aggressive and so fine tuning was needed to minimise its impact. 

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.

For all the new CDA3 updates listed above, new hotlaps will be published on the Coach Dave Academy YouTube channel when they are ready to be uploaded.

What’s The Plan For The America DLC Package? 

With the release of the America DLC package today there are obviously some very important questions to answer, so let’s go through them one at a time and how Coach Dave Academy plans to work through the content. 

How much will the DLC be? 

Just like the previous British GT DLC package, the America DLC will get its own mini bundle with all 3 circuits inside for each car. This will be separate to the other packages and the retail cost will be identical to the British GT bundle at £6.99. 

If you are a subscription service customer, there will be no changes to how we normally add the products. As and when they are released in order, the cars and tracks will be populated on the back end for you to download in your account area. 

What order are you releasing the cars? 

In order to keep things as organised as possible, we will be working on one car at a time on all 3 circuits and then releasing completed bundles for those cars each Thursday, just like we do with the CDA3 updates right now. The order of cars we will be working through is as follows: 

GT3’s 

1. Continental GT3 

2. McLaren 720s GT3

3. Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO 

4. BMW M4 GT3

5. Porsche GT3 R

6. Audi R8 GT3 EVO 2

7. Mercedes AMG GT3 EVO

8. Honda NSX GT3 EVO 2

9. Lamborghini Huracan EVO 

10. Aston Martin V8 Vantage

11. Nissan GTR

12. Lexus RC F

GT4’s 

1. Porsche Cayman

2. BMW M4

3. Aston Vantage GT4

4. Chevrolet Camaro

5. Mercedes AMG

6. Ginetta G55

7. Alpine A110

8. McLaren 570S 

9. Audi R8 

Single Make Cars

1. Porsche Cup 

2. BMW M2 CS

3. Ferrari 488 Challenge EVO 2 

4. Lambo Huracan ST EVO 2

When will you start work?

Work on the new circuits will commence on Monday 4th July to give the drivers time to test on the new tracks and get up to speed over the weekend. We will then work through the above list in order, with GT3’s first and then working down to GT4’s and then the single make cars. 

Setup Livestream

We will be hosting our first setup livestream for the America DLC on Wednesday 6th July at 2pm. Jakob Ostermann and Saiduth Ramesh will be taking the McLaren 720s GT3 out for a spin at Watkins Glen to make the setups for that combination. Make sure to join us on the Coach Dave Academy YouTube channel to watch.
