ACC setup FAQ

Who are the setups best suited for?

Our setups are for everyone. We build our setups on a solid, easy-to-drive basis. They serve as the basic foundation for your final setup. The general public will get along just fine without changing anything. For those groups that prefer to have the car oversteer or understeer, the setup can be adjusted in the appropriate direction with just a few clicks.

Who created the setups?

The setup creators are some drivers from our esports team, as well as RennWelten Friends. There is a Creator shortcut under the respective bundle in the shop. We had the setups created by our vehicle-specific experts. Jan Biermann, for example, covered a large proportion of vehicles with front engines.#

What does the bundle include?

Each bundle includes one race and one qualifying setup per route. This is the normal case. Exceptions are special setup packs for long distances, where we do the qualifying in racing trim, so there is no qualifying setup.

In addition, depending on the route and vehicle, there may already be v2 setups in the bundle that have been revised by the creator. There are also the first combinations that are equipped with LFM 25 or 45 minute setups. This allows you to compete in the respective races. There will also be setups with the abbreviation S for safe and gradually rain setups.

Are the bundles updated?

Yes, you can download updates to the setups for free. You can get information about updates in the Discord and by email. New vehicle models become a new shop product.

At what temperatures were the setups created?

We agreed on temperatures of 23_28. That means 23 degrees air and 28 degrees track temperature. Since the temperature varies somewhat depending on the distance and the time, the exact temperature at which the setup was set is behind each setup.
E.g. “RW Porsche Kyalami R 23_28”

What kind of setups does a bundle contain and what do all the abbreviations in the setup mean?

We use abbreviations for the routes or vehicles. There are also abbreviations such as R for race, Q for qualification. Each bundle includes the specified routes. Each track contains a qualifying setup and a race setup.

What tire pressures are optimal for a GT3 racing car?

The optimal pressure is on average 27.6 PSI. In the rain you should aim for 30 PSI.

Are there also Motec recordings of the setups?

There are currently no plans in this area. We offer coaching to specifically support you. Our coaches are specialized in identifying sources of error and showing you tips and tricks to improve your times. For such coaching you can book a package with a Motec reference round, which the relevant coach will make available to you.

What do the 4 different brake pads mean?

Brake Pad 1 is a sprint brake pad. You can drive this for up to 3 hours without changing it. We recommend driving on Brake Pad 1 for a maximum of 2 hours.
Brake Pad 2 is a long-distance brake pad that lasts up to 12 hours. It is slightly less aggressive than the 1 series brake pad.
Brake Pad 3 is a brake pad for rain racing, this is less aggressive and will give you more confidence in the vehicle.
Brake Pad 4 is a simulation brake pad that simulates very heavy wear and is usually not used.

How do I save the setups?

It's easy to download the setups, unpack the folder and drag it into your Assetto Corsa Competizione folder. You can find this under documents. If you open the folder you will find the Setups folder with the respective vehicles and routes at the bottom, where you can save the downloaded setups.

What do the abbreviations in the setup name mean?

The setup name always contains the Creator abbreviation, the track, vehicle and then an R or Q (for races and qualification) and the temperature (example 23_28 means 23 air temperature and 28 track temperature).

In the V2 variants of the setups there is an “E” or “SA”. These are “Safe” and “eSports” variants for the setups. (So ​​everyone has the choice whether they want to drive an aggressive or less aggressive vehicle).

How quickly are the setups updated after an update?

After a major patch we will update the setups step by step. The first setups will be updated a few days after the release. The whole process will of course take some time.

Which vehicles will there be setups for?
In the long term, we want to cover all cars in the shop, but the most popular vehicles have been prioritized for now.

Who benefits from my purchase?

The whole Setup Shop model is designed so that the Setup Creator receives money from the sales. Unlike other platforms, you support the creators directly. RennWelten receives a portion for providing the service in the shop.

Are there any more GT4 setups?

Further GT4 setups will also find their way into the shop and will be added gradually.

How do I use the setups on consoles?

The files cannot be transferred directly to the consoles. The values ​​in the JSON files are encoded. We have therefore provided a special setup reader tool for you. You can find instructions on how to use it in this video .

Where can I contact you if I have questions about setups?

We have a separate area on our Discord for questions about shop products, ask your question there and you will get answers to your question(s) from one of our coaches or admins.

What about the setups because of ACC version 1.9?

The current update (PC version 1.9) has changed a lot in terms of driving dynamics, tires, physics, etc. in ACC, which is why all setups have to be revised. Our creators are working hard on it and buyers will receive free updates via email with a download link. Some packs are updated step by step, these are marked "Under Construction" and always receive the updates immediately as soon as routes have been added.

Do the setups work on consoles because of the version difference?

Version 1.8 is still current on consoles and the difference to the PC version is very big. That's why our packs always contain subfolders called "ACC_1.8" with the setups optimized for this version.
