Save time and remove the guessing. Use our setups out the box or as a baseline to improve upon. Coach Dave Academy setups are created by the best sim racers in the business and then back tested by real racing drivers. Our focus is not only on speed but also drivability and consistency.
All lap times listed below are set in Hot Lap mode with Optimum Track conditions. The laps are confirmed by two test drivers on the Coach Dave team. Please make sure your tires are always in the ideal operating window of 27.5 – 28.0 Psi for GT3 and 26.5 – 27.0 Psi for GT4.
Tyre pressures change every session based on ambient and track temperature as well as track state (green, fast, optimum). We recommend that in a dry optimal qualifying and race session that you aim for a tyre pressure range of 27.5 – 28 psi. For wet tyres the pressure range slightly increases and your aim should be 29.5 – 30 psi.
Brake pad 1 and brake pad 4 compounds offer the same braking performance and efficiency when the brakes are optimal temperature. Brake pad 4 however has much worse pedal modulation, is exceptionally hard wearing and they have worse performance when the brakes are just outside their optimum working range. For almost any qualifying situation brake pad 1 is superior and more consistent.
Through personal experience here at Coach Dave Academy we recommend that any race spanning from 90 minutes through to 12 hours that you use brake pad compound 2. Please bear in mind that brake longevity is very dependent on car choice and driving style.
The peak reference lap times for each circuit you see listed are completed on ACC in hotlap mode, with a track temperature of 30 degrees running the qualifying setups included in your bundle.
