How to install your setups on PC
For our wet setup bundles, the process to add them to your collection is the same as the dry bundles. Your two or three separate wet setups will be situated in each track folder within the download, which you are free to copy over and overwrite in your track folders on your PC.
How to Install your setups on Console
If you’ve purchased your setup for use on console you can read this tutorial about installing them with our console wizard.
For wet setups, the process is the same where you input the values using the console wizard for the tracks you desire to use them on.
Understanding Setup File Name
Our file structure and naming process have recently changed with V1.9 of ACC. You can find all about our naming structure and what the differences are between multiple setups in the bundles via our File Name Structure post.
Wanting to see how our lap times using your newly purchased bundles are achieved on the website? You can find all our onboard videos on the Coach Dave Hotlaps Youtube channel.
Our products are intended to improve on the baseline setups included in ACC. We back them 100% but sometimes tweaks are necessary. We have many tutorials to help you tailor your Coach Dave Setups exactly to your needs. Here are three useful tutorials for console users;
- Optimizing Tire Pressures in ACC
- Understanding Fuel Strategies in ACC
- How to fix Oversteer and Understeer
Please Note: Using Delta now takes care of your tyre pressures for you in all track conditions and temperatures with our auto-install feature (not console compatible). All race setups are filled with fuel for 60 minutes of racing. Our setups are designed to deal with the changing weight distributions through an entire stint, so can feel different on full fuel and low fuel.
