hey guys, i came to this thread cuz i just need a good Michigan setup that will run on legend with no assists. what's with all the theory? All that tells me is that none of you really have one. At least one guy has the idea of the thread and just bucked up and posted what he had. Oh well, i guess i will just keep looking. thanks anyway

Re: Nascar 09 setup thread

Hi guys,
Does anybody know how to get better fuel economy when racing against the computer controlled cars in one player mode? I can't seem to be able to get near the fuel economy of the other cars, despite changing my set-ups or driving really slow in the corners. Am I missing something or does anyone know any tips I can use please???

try drafting other cars, just ride a computer car until u need to pass him, so he would be pulling u around the track instead of u using more gas.

Re: Nascar 09 setup thread

does any use the Basic setup sliders? I tired it and basically just makes your car worse and dose not help at all. The advanced tuning you can do is pretty much useless to me.

Re: Nascar 09 setup thread

You should never use the basic setup page. Load the Vet setup and work on it from there. If your looking to become better at Nascar 09, it's best to get involved with drivers that know what their talking about and would be willing to help you out. There are many sites you can visit for setups and most are just ok to say the least, but some can be good bases to work on. It really is best to build your own car based on your driving style. I can answer any questions you would have about setting up a car, but I only come here about once a week. My Xbox gamertag is Mac3. Feel free to hit me up and we'll turn some laps.

I can do good in most races with just some tape adjustments and minor suspenion tweaks.
what do you slightly tweak? just the bars back and forth in the main setup screen, or do you go all the way into tweaking tire pressures and what not?
