Is there a guide available for ARCA? Most of the settings i know from other games but those specific things that are in the setup menu i have a hard time understanding them all..
So before I outline the car to drive only right corners, i better know what i am doing :D

Yup, generally will work, but does not figure actual aero forces, where much of the change is needed nowadays ... The defaults in the sim are a great starting point as they are made straight from the shop in most cases, the Kentucky one is missing though, and will be put in the next round of updates soon.

I may have the Kentucky one. I think you passed it on to me the day the update was out in the official server.

EDIT: Seems im missing the set you gave me, I must of reinstalled a while back :(
Any chance of adding it to the setup section?

As for this setup sheet, As you say its missing some some due to the extra physics ARCA has but for non stockcar drivers it gives you and idea what things like wedge does. I remember when I first started racing ARCA, I had no clue what stuff did. :)

This is a very good starting thread indeed!:)

I just bought and installed arca here on my pc. It looks to be another great sim added to my collection. I'm very new to this oval racing scene and the only things i really know are the things from the past... Days of Thunder anyone :p

This thread is ideal to learn it all. I bet i need alot to learn about the oval racing rules etc...

Looking forward on this one:skywalker:
