At the Academy we make sure that every single setup we make is taken seriously. We use the best people we can find and stick to strict rules on quality. Our setups focus on engineering norms and avoid game exploits. Drivers and Engineers are paired up for months to ensure clear communication that leads to reliable car setups.
All the engineers who work on Academy Setups are qualified or real world engineers with experience in Sim Racing and Real Racing to make sure we stick to the fundamentals of car setup. We rely on expertise, data and live video to make the best setup decisions possible.
There are no volunteers in our team, instead paying the very best drivers we can find who understand what it means to create car setups that work for drivers of all skill levels. Accurate feedback and consistency is valued over fast lap times and big egos.
Setup teams work 5 days a week, for 6 hours per day, working on individual car/track combinations during each session. All sessions are streamed live so that fellow team members can join in and contribute during a project.
Before signing off on a car bundle, we hold a blind testing session amongst our drivers, randomly picking some setups for feedback. Setups are compared against game defaults, and previous versions, to ensure that what we’ve created is clearly a step forward.
All lap times listed below are set in Hot Lap mode with Optimum Track conditions. Please make sure your tires are always in the ideal operating window.

Our setups can be installed in two different ways.
If you are a subscriber we recommend using our Coach Dave Delta app for Windows. Read about installing the app here.
If you are a bundle owner then you can read this tutorial about downloading and installing the setups from your Coach Dave account.
Lastly, if you are a console user we have a special app called Console Wizard which you can read about here.
Yes, ACC setups will be updated whenever the Kuno’s dev team make major changes to Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Our policy on charging for setup changes is the following:

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 – 30.5 psi.
Read more here about using the correct tire pressures in ACC.
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.
Each car has a different fuel burn rate per lap so this is very car specific. Excluding your outlap, you should aim to have enough fuel to complete 3 flying laps in a qualifying run. Depending on the circuit, expect to have to put 15-20L of fuel in the car before you leave the pits.
Read more about fuel management and calculations here.
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.
The data runs that are supplied are a separate entity to the hotlaps listed on the website using the qualifying setup. So with all of our setup bundles, the motec file included with every circuit contains 3 consistent laps with race fuel (60-65L) onboard using the race setup where available.
This gives you a much better idea as to where the correct braking, acceleration and turn in points are on the lap. We took this decision a long time ago as pure 1 hotlap data files provide much less feedback and references for customers looking to improve their technique.
This is because being able to replicate the same inputs lap after lap are much more important than a single hotlap that has many more variables that in some cases cannot be replicated again and again.
