Setups For NTG '11
To a member of the Forum Board, How close are the setups between NASCAR '09 and NASCAR The Game '11? Is it possible to "Plug-In" your setup from 09 to 11 and have the car run descent? Or is there a huge difference between the two games. Yes I know that they are made by two totally separate companies. Thanks.

I guess it depends how real their physics were. Our engine is very good so, who knows. In principal, the concept of your set up should be similar.Dave T.

Im willing to bet most people's idea of a good setup will not work at all in NTG11. In some regards BabaGahNush thats kind of the trick in real life too. Getting the car down to where the splitter almost touches in the corners or touches lightly and having the car ride the bump stops. You are right that will mess up the car if you are wrong in real life. I think there will be a much bigger effort to get a car to be good on entrance because without their precious steering help the cars will be pushing up the hill. People will probably complain that the speed push/tightness/understeer isnt realistic hahaha. And they really wont like that it gets worse as you keep going in lap #'s. I think the aero will be locked like it is in real life. So everyone will be screaming why cant i put my spoiler down to 55°, and why cant i make my front splitter length shorter. I am curious about how making the rear ride height/trackbar height at certain tracks will help get more air on the spoiler as well as the wedge or cross weight of the car. I know the CFD/Aero is one of the hardest aspects to model physically in the simulation. I personally am curious about the shark fins on the rear of the car, and whether the length of the fin will be variable or even there at all. Locking the gear ratio's or making only two available like at some tracks will be nice to level the playing field as well. Just my two cents. I think I will like it. My background makes it nice to understand the way setup changes affect the car.

never heard of lowering all the springs, really dumb, well it will be a starter point for NTG11 setups , u gotta start somewere , but i really wanna no how far can you go on setup, cuz i run a 280 @ SS tracks, which is really past what is used in NASCAR , can i still use my 280 or is it finally gonna go by rules of NASCAR"Because he believes that the PS3 is a god send that is better than even a super computer and wants somebody to bow down to him so he can gloat he's god's right hand man for defending the PS3..."

i mean u can do a coil bind setup but for me i hate i love my car loose even at SS tracks, i run on RR trackbar a 15 , & 10.25 on left & 48 % wedge with a controller"Because he believes that the PS3 is a god send that is better than even a super computer and wants somebody to bow down to him so he can gloat he's god's right hand man for defending the PS3..."

a tutorial or a help guide next to everything would be nice tooIf your not on the gas I'll be on your a@#
gettin' to Texarkana and back in 28 hours, that's no problem.

Hopefully The setups for the EA games won't work at all because this game will be so much better than all of EA's games combined!!!Don't hate on Jimmie because your driver can't keep up!!

EA's was far from realistic!!
There needs to be limits like real nascar setups. This would help cure a lot.

I would like to see you guys or someone release a diagram of what certain changes on the setup do to the car. Not all of us are engine brains haha. I can say Im not clueless but Im no expert, im the in between haha

It will be a learning curb for all of us, some will figure out faster than the others

I hope none of the setups from EAs games worked they were so unrealistic hopefully they set up just like the real racecars do with limitations on certain things such as gear and all that because i kinda sorta have an advantage there lol

They seemed pretty realistic to me although I only race online and you have to remember most everyone online are setting their cars up for short races rather than a real life 100% race. That said, I kind of hope they are pretty close. I know it took me a long time just to get my cars set up for all the different tracks I ran. I would like to just be able to reference my previous setup and load it into the new game.

I'm sure if I tried to use my setups for anything over 50 - 100%, then yes, my setup would not be realistic and would fall behind or DNF.

EASports is a JOKE!!! I was messing around with my 11 year old brother the other day with NASCAR 09 (He loves it not me) and I blew a tire and still ran 4 laps after at 190 MPH around Atlanta with 3 tires and didn't spin and still won the race. Figure that one out...
