The Mercedes AMG 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 Mercedes AMG GT3 EVO is a tricky car to get right in Assetto Corsa Ciompetizione. You are constantly walking a tight rope of push understeer on power and lift off oversteer on entry. This is in part due to its very rearward fuel tank position and also the car’s longish wheel base. Since the toe changes, the car has been less affected in terms of straight line speed than others in regards to the higher rolling resistance due to it’s high torque, however it can still suffer from high tyre wear on the front axle.
So what have we done?
Overall the car needed differing adjustments based on the challenges of the circuits we faced. In the latest patch, some circuits had become much more front limited and others rear on entry. Paying special attention to the diff preload, bumpstop ranges and stiffness as well as rake and toe/damper changes, we were able to get a consistent feeling across the 19 circuits that should bring much more consistency than before.

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.
