iRacing is one of the most competitive online experiences in the world. It goes beyond sim racing. It’s the most realistic, the most competitive, the biggest races.
With thousands of players competing every day, gaining the competitive edge is difficult. Sure, you can download a setup from one of the popular shops, but when everyone is using the same setup, how do you differentiate? How do you find that extra tenth of a second?
At Coach Dave Academy we take a different approach with setups. We don’t just seek out the best drivers with the highest iRatings but go the extra mile by pairing our drivers with qualified race engineers who work with their driver to develop setups that are not only good for one lap but also entire race stints.
“I’ve used probably 4 or so services for iRacing and the Coach Dave setups consistently feel comfortable and competitive”
Don’t believe us? Well… why not watch one of our setup sessions live on YouTube? Professionally presented on the Coach Dave Academy YouTube channel. If that is not enough then you can also catch our weekly lap guides created by top level iRacing coaches, like Porsche Sprint Challenge Champion Suellio Almeida, and professional racing drivers like Kelvin Van Der Linde.
Setups are launched ahead of time as well, giving you a head start against your competition. Our teams deliver setups every Friday and we launch them early Monday morning, giving you at least 24 hours to practice before new weekly races are launched.

Below are the parameters we use in our servers to create the setups that are situated in your bundle. These are also the conditions that the hotlaps and motec data runs are completed in:
Once you become a subscriber of Coach Dave Academy iRacing Setups, you will immediately be eligible for free updates to your setups as and when iRacing makes substantial changes to the car/physics models that demand a refresh of the existing setups.
All new content that is released will also be accessible to you as long as you are an existing and recurring subscriber of our service. If you are a one time purchaser of a setup bundle, you will not be eligible for the above.
You can find updates to your iRacing setups in your profile area on the website. By clicking on the car that you own and then the track folders in your download section, the new setups will be situated within that specific track folder.
We took the decision to create the setups in 100% grip on our server due to the evolving conditions you would face in an endurance/sprint race. Most servers will be running with dynamic track selected and so the circuit will rubber up as time goes by.
For that reason we thought it was best to optimise the setups on a track surface that would represent what you will experience in a longer endurance race.
