McLaren V2 Bundle Released – Ferrari Progress

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:

McLaren 720S GT3 CDA3 Fully Updated

The following tracks now have updated CDA3 setups: 

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

With the last few tracks completed the McLaren bundle has now been finished with all the V2 setups. 

As mentioned last week, regarding the damper update, the behaviour of the McLaren has also changed recently. Overall we felt the car was a little too understeer biased and rough over the kerbs with the V1 setups. Traction could also be improved based on our testing and so we set to work on improving them.

So what have we done? 

In general, wholesale changes were made to a lot of the setups to get the car into a more comfortable window where a driver did not have to compromise their driving style as aggressively. A new aero balance was found to put the car into a nice stable window and we then refined the setup from there, to build kerb compliance and more mechanical traction into the setup. 

For that, damping and wheel rates were adjusted along with toe changes to bring the setups into line with the more recent adjustments Kunos have made regarding that controversial subject. 

Every single one of the 19 circuits were tested and adjusted when updating the bundle so there is new content regardless of the server you join and circuit you visit. 

These updates are FREE for existing McLaren bundle customers and those who have an active subscription on Coach Dave Academy.
