Easy way to fix setups PS2

Nascar Heat Setup Guide.

Tire Pressure

Lower tire pressures result in a more forgiving car, and result in higher tire 
temperatures.
Higher pressures allow higher top speeds with less temperature buildup. The 
recommended pressure 
will keep the middle (M) temperature of the tires near the average of the inside 
(I) and outside 
(O) temperatures. Going higher than recommended can result in more speed at a high-
speed track, 
but the loss in grip can hurt at slower tracks.
					   Settings
Raise R/F  	Loosens car off the corner.
Lower R/F	Tightens car up
Raise R/R	Tighter into corner looser off
Lower R/R	Looser on short runs, as heat builds tightens up. (Think of those 
long runs)
Raise L/F	Tightens car up into and off the corner.
Lower L/F	Looser off the corners.
Raise L/R	Looser off the corners but tighter in the middle.
Lower L/R	Looser at start but tightens up on long runs.

Shock Bump

At the front, a lower number (softer shock compression) loosens the car during the 
transition to 
braking, and at the rear, softer shock compression tightens the car during the 
transition to 
throttle. Higher numbers (stiffer shock compression) give quicker reactions during 
these 
transitions, and the opposite effects.

Shock Rebound

At the front, a lower number (softer shock rebound) loosens the car during the 
transition to 
throttle, and at the rear, softer shock rebound tightens the car during the 
transition to braking.
 Higher numbers (stiffer shock rebound) give quicker reactions during the 
transitions, and the 
opposite effects.
					Shocks General
Raise R/F	Tighter off the corner.
Lower R/F	Looser off the corner.
Raise R/R	Looser from the middle and off the corner.
Lower R/R	Tighter from the middle and off the corner.
Raise L/F	Also tighter from the middle off.
Lower L/F	Looser into corners if done in combination with raising r/r.
Raise L/R	Looser in and off corner.
Lower L/R	Tightens car up off corners.

Note: As a rule I start with Bump. I have found this to have the best effect with 
the above 
settings.

Springs

Softer front springs usually loosen the car (turns better), while softer rear 
springs tighten it 
(less likely to spin). Use the softest springs you can without letting the car 
scrape the ground.
 If the car rolls too much, stiffen the sway bars.
					     Settings (partial)
Raise R/R		Loosens car into corners.
Lower R/R		Tightens car off corner.
Raise L/R		Tightens car off corner.
Lower L/R		Loosens car in the middle to off corner.


Camber

Some positive left side and negative right side camber will help the car turn left. 
Too much 
camber will reduce grip and increase tire wear. Tire temperatures on the edge of 
the tire leaning
 into the turn (outside -O- on left, inside -I- on right) should be 5 to 10 degrees 
hotter than 
the other edge. Negative equal cambers on both sides are usually best on a road 
coarse, with 
inside temperatures 5 to 10 degrees hotter than outside.

Front Brake Bias

If the car doesn't turn well under braking, decrease the front brake bias. If it 
wants to spin 
under braking, increase the front brake bias. Go with the lowest front bias you can 
control.


Front Sway Bar

Stiffening the front sway bar (larger diameter) tightens the car and reduces body 
roll when 
cornering, which can give better control over the tire camber during cornering. Too 
stiff a bar 
can lift a front wheel off the track when cornering.

Rear Sway Bar

Stiffening the rear sway bar (larger diameter) loosens the car and reduces body 
roll when 
cornering.

Final Gear Ratio

The final gear ratio is used to adjust all four gears together. A smaller ratio 
allows for higher
 top speeds, but produces less torque at the rear wheels, so it will take longer to 
reach top 
speed.




Transmission gear ratios

Allows each gear to be individually adjusted. A smaller ratio allows for higher top 
speeds, but 
produces less torque at the rear wheels, so it takes longer to reach top speed.
DON'T FORGET, once you set the individual gear ratio, it will act accordingly to a 
change in the 
final gear ratio.

Grill Tape

More tape reduces air drag and increases front down force, but can cause engine 
overheating.

Spoiler

Less spoiler reduces air drag and rear down force, giving higher top speeds and a 
looser car. A 
setting of 70% is mandated at the super-speedways.

Front Weight Bias

Shifting weight to the front (a higher front bias) can help the car turn in better, 
but may give 
more mid-corner push. Shifting weight back can stabilize the car at turn entry, but 
may loosen in
 mid-corner.

Left Weight Bias

On an oval, use the maximum left weight allowed. On road courses, it's usually best 
to keep the 
weight equal on the left and right sides.

Wedge

Less wedge will loosen the car, allowing it to turn better. More wedge tightens the 
car, and can 
help in putting the power down. On a road course, use 50% wedge to keep the car 
from pulling to 
the left or right under power.
