Welcome to the garage area. Here you’ll drivable chassis setups for NR2003.  You’re probably not going to go out and WIN a league race with our setups, but you’ll have a car that is drivable, and hopefully quick enough to contend!

If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment!

Atlanta- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Tri-Ovals are more about staying out of trouble, and not over-driving the car. Practice your pitting, and make plenty of laps to make sure there are not inherent flaws in your chassis setup.  Race clean, give and take, and wait for the competitors to wreck out. Kansas is a bit more flat than some others, so make sure you are not entering the turns too hot. Cars will be sliding through the turns, and jetting out to the wall, so be sure to keep a good distance from others.

Chicagoland- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: 1.5 mile Tri-Ovals are more about staying out of trouble, and not over-driving the car. Practice your pitting, and make plenty of laps to make sure there are not inherent flaws in your chassis setup.  Race clean, give and take, and wait for the competitors to wreck out. Race tested: This Chicago setup is a Franken-Setup, a new creation, and has never been race tested. Use at your own risk.

Cras elit lectus, bibendum a, adipiscing vitae, commodo et, dui. Ut tincidunt tortor.


Daytona- [Download a Setup - Daytona BR] Track Guide: There really is not much to Daytona besides holding a line and staying off the apron and wall. Don’t put yourself or your competitor into a position that is unnecessarily tight early in the race. Give some room. Don’t try to drive a setup that you cannot handle. At Daytona you don’t need to. Also you don’t need to take on 4 tires on each stop. Take rights, or lefts, but never take 4 unless you have flatsided them. You will stand more chance of losing on pit road than on the track, so practice your entrance and exit plenty before the race.

Infineon- [Download a Setup] Updated–moved weight forward 1 tick (6/20/10) Track Guide: Shift down to 1st as you roll through 2 at the top of hill. Downshift to 2nd before right hand. Let up early before last S turn to the right. Shift to 3rd after moderate braking turn 10. Count off downshift 3 gears and cut turn 11 tight. Let up only slightly after start/finish. Keep car straight as you downshift, and then count down shift 2 gears entering turn 1. Shift to 1st at apex of turn 2. From Volker, Brake bias down to help cornering, Weight back to help cornering.


Kansas- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: 1.5 mile Tri-Ovals are more about staying out of trouble, and not over-driving the car. Practice your pitting, and make plenty of laps to make sure there are not inherent flaws in your chassis setup.  Race clean, give and take, and wait for the competitors to wreck out. Kansas is a bit more flat than some others, so make sure you are not entering the turns too hot. Cars will be sliding through the turns, and jetting out to the wall, so be sure to keep a good distance from others.


Las Vegas- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: 1.5 mile Tri-Ovals are more about staying out of trouble, and not over-driving the car. Practice your pitting, and make plenty of laps to make sure there are not inherent flaws in your chassis setup.  Race clean, give and take, and wait for the competitors to wreck out. Las Vegas is particularly fast, so there really is very little strategy to running good there. Pick a setup that is easy on tires, and easy to drive. There will be trouble with all that speed.


Lowes- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: 1.5 mile Tri-Ovals are more about staying out of trouble, and not over-driving the car. Practice your pitting, and make plenty of laps to make sure there are not inherent flaws in your chassis setup.  Race clean, give and take, and wait for the competitors to wreck out. At Lowes there is very little room for passing and the cars tend to slide around. Leave your competitors plenty of room. Pace yourself and pick your passing lanes carefully.


Martinsville- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Nam nibh. Nunc varius facilisis eros. Sed erat. In in velit quis arcu ornare laoreet. Curabitur adipiscing luctus massa. Integer ut purus ac augue commodo commodo. Nunc nec mi eu justo tempor consectetuer. Etiam vitae nisl. In dignissim lacus ut ante. Cras elit lectus, bibendum a, adipiscing vitae, commodo et, dui. Ut tincidunt tortor.


Michigan- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Let up slightly as the pavement dips, and back into the throttle at the apex. Be careful not to over drive the corners. Tire wear shouldn’t slow you down for the first 10 laps or so, but be easy on the throttle before the apex. Watch out for the first few turns, as the car will be hard to handle. Moved weight forward one notch from Volker setup. Race tested: Fast, drivable, watch the tire wear. Needs no changes.


New Hampshire- [Download a Setup] Updated: Setup is now fast and stable 6/27/10. Keep the car low, left tire near first line. Do not overdriver corners. Wait until car settles to accelerate exit. Track Guide: Otherwise known as Louden, this is your typical flat track. If you can roll through the middle of the corners, keeping momentum, you’ll do better. Wait until the turn apex to accelerate, or you’ll prematurely wear the tires. Stay out of the bottom lane if you can, grip is not quite as good down there, and the car will rarely hold on a low pass. Franken-setup, from many sources.


Phoenix- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Nam nibh. Nunc varius facilisis eros. Sed erat. In in velit quis arcu ornare laoreet. Curabitur adipiscing luctus massa. Integer ut purus ac augue commodo commodo. Nunc nec mi eu justo tempor consectetuer. Etiam vitae nisl. In dignissim lacus ut ante. Cras elit lectus, bibendum a, adipiscing vitae, commodo et, dui. Ut tincidunt tortor.


Pocono- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Turn one, let up at first sign, turn into the left to the left curb while braking moderately, and shift down into third just before apex. If you drift out to the center or wall, you’re going in too hot. Turn two, let up and slight brake while shift into third just before the down slope. May shift into fourth if you like, but not really much advantage. Moderate brake at first red, slow car to 132mph, and ease into gas at apex. Race tested: Lowered 4th one tick, due to competition catching me on straights. Not sure it helped. May want to work on gearing more.


Richmond- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Nam nibh. Nunc varius facilisis eros. Sed erat. In in velit quis arcu ornare laoreet. Curabitur adipiscing luctus massa. Integer ut purus ac augue commodo commodo. Nunc nec mi eu justo tempor consectetuer. Etiam vitae nisl. In dignissim lacus ut ante. Cras elit lectus, bibendum a, adipiscing vitae, commodo et, dui. Ut tincidunt tortor.


Talladega- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Nam nibh. Nunc varius facilisis eros. Sed erat. In in velit quis arcu ornare laoreet. Curabitur adipiscing luctus massa. Integer ut purus ac augue commodo commodo. Nunc nec mi eu justo tempor consectetuer. Etiam vitae nisl. In dignissim lacus ut ante. Cras elit lectus, bibendum a, adipiscing vitae, commodo et, dui. Ut tincidunt tortor.


Texas- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: 1.5 mile Tri-Ovals are more about staying out of trouble, and not over-driving the car. Practice your pitting, and make plenty of laps to make sure there are not inherent flaws in your chassis setup.  Race clean, give and take, and wait for the competitors to wreck out. Texas is particularly fast, and sometimes there’s some bumping in the kink. Race smart, and avoid those moving around a lot. They will eventually find the wall or another competitor.


Watkins Glen- [Download a Setup] Track Guide: Watkins Glen, or any road course for that matter is all about cheating through the corners, and getting away with it. Find a spot, mark, sign, tree or anything that you can use as your brake point for every corner. Pick a corner that you feel that you could be getting thru faster, and start to try some different ways around it. Work on that one corner trying out different stuff. Aim inside of where you want to go. Use a small amount of throttle while braking. Good luck!


Volker Hackman Setups
VH is a German engineer, and his NR2003 setups are the fastest available anywhere! They are often hard to drive, so here are some tips:

  • If the car pulls a lot to the left, and you don’t like that… adjust the front camber. Typical camber on a VH2 setup is LEFT 7.00 and RIGHT -2.00. To make the car pull less to the left, adjust each of them a bit towards ZERO. For instance, in the above example try LEFT 6.50 and RIGHT -1.50 … and so forth.
  • Another cure for the strong pull to the left — try adjusting the brake bias percentage to a higher number. Typical VH2 brake bias is around 50, so try 63 percent and see if that works for you.
  • If the car feels “WOBBLY” as if the car center of gravity is too far to the rear, move the weight forward one tick. This is most often noticeable when you have oversteer after making steering corrections and you lose control of the car.
  • If the car fishtails excessively, or the front of the car drifts or wanders, move the appropriate trackbar towards the tighter setting by one tick.
