The new Patch 1.8 not only brought a new car, but also updates to the tire model as well as the physics in Assetto Corsa Competizione. As we are all trying to adapt to these new changes, Boonatix again joins forces with setup engineer Tristan from R&D Racing to guide you along a beginner friendly process of creating your own setup:

While setups from ACC version 1.7 will technically still work, they might be far from optimal. In this workshop Boonatix and Tristan will take you through all aspects needed to get the most out of the new BMW M4 GT3. The topics of discussion are as follows:

- Understanding the track
- The base to start with
- Interpret what you feel & see
- What you want to change first
- Tips & Hints for 1.8

Tune into the live stream from 18:30PM UTC and get working on your own BMW M4 GT3 Setup in Assetto Corsa Competizione.

I don't doubt a good setup in the hands of a good driver will yield good lap times. The issue I have is the the bullying this car will have to endure from other cars, on the track, for being so fugly.

You could press the front of this thing into some dough and make gorilla cookies.

Fortunately, if your drive from the cockpit, you will rarely have to see it. And if you run away from the pack, they too will be in doubt how fugly the front is.
 
Bit of a run what you brung type guy myself. I remember being very into setups when Indycar 1 + 2 came out (back when you got MASSIVE manuals) but somehow I just fell back into driving with no setup.

These days I'm only really changing setup if everyone is saying the base ones are way out or the track isn't a mixed bag.
