Many thanks for a great site, much appreciated. Just wondering whether these setups should also work with NASCAR 08. I live in the UK and play on Xbox and unfortunately NASCAR 14 is not being released over here on that format, only PS3 and PC. Many thanks

Its been awhile since I've played Nascar 08, but if I remember right, the setups are a little different for that game. However, the default pitstop changes may work in that game, since making changes in the pits is pretty universal, but I'm not completely sure on that, since settings that work in one game sometimes don't work in another game.
When I was playing Nascar 08, it was on the PS2, and believe it or not, I still have notes written down for that game in the same notebook I'm still using for the current game. Although, Nascar '14 is filling up the last of the empty pages that are left in it, lol. Like I said, It's been so long since I've played Nascar 08, I don't know if the setups I have written down were very good or not. I didn't race online much back then. If you want, I could send them to you in a PM if you like, or I could always make a new section under the Car Setups for Nascar 08 if you think that would be better. Let me know if you'd like me to do either of those options and I could do either one if you want.

Either way should be great Rockit. Really appreciate whatever you can let me have. Would love to be playing the new game but it's not looking like that will happen now unless I can get a cheap NTSC Xbox.

I decided to post them on the site in the car setups section. I have all the tracks listed on one page, under the heading: NASCAR 08 (All Tracks). Hopefully they will work for you, and anyone else who may be still playing Nascar 08. Enjoy!

Rockit,

I am, looking for a setup that will work for the brake assist? I have a terrible time figuring out braking in NASCAR games and usually prefer to use the brake assist. But, problem is I always end up getting killed by the CPU with it. Just wondering if there are setups that can help with that problem? Or a setup to work with assists on?

Brake assists will slow you down quite a bit, due to the computer doing all of the braking for you. This may help you on the entry of turns, but sometimes the computer may apply the brake a little too long. Like for example at Atlanta, very little braking is needed at the entry of the turn, maybe just a tap if anything, but with brake assist on, the computer will leave it on a little longer than necessary. Unfortunately, I don't have any setups that were made with brake assist on. However, may I suggest using the brake indicator? The brake indicator basically comes on at the top middle of the screen and tells you when to brake. It stays on, then switches to slow, when you have gone through worst of the turn. Usually, when it switches to slow, is when I usually apply the gas again. Sometimes, like at Phoenix in turn 4, feathering the gas before putting full pressure on the gas works well while the slow indicator is up. With the brake assist on, the computer keeps the car slowed until you are all the way through the turn. Braking yourself can be hard to master at first, but the brake indicator helps a lot! I too used to use brake assist in the early nascar games until it was either Nascar 03 or Nascar 04, that Brake assist wasn't included as one of the options. Which forced me to learn when to brake in the turn entries. It took a lot of time and practice, but I eventually got it down. Learning when to brake and when to reapply the gas at each track, is part of what the actual drivers go though also, and part of what makes the game more fun. Especially when you're out braking the computer cars, or a friend online, and coming away with wins because of it. You can turn on or off the brake indicator on the assists page.
If you decide to continue to use the brake assist, my only other suggestion would be to lower the AI difficulty percentage at each track, to make it a little more even for you. Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.

Thank you for the tips. I will definitely use some of these strategies. I keep saying that to myself while playing why even bother having a brake assist it's only going to hinder the gameplay? :P But, again thanks for the help. And, thanks for giving us awesome setups to use.

Nascar 15 :
Anyone have a setup for Dega that can do better than a 46:53 (206/207mph) ?
I have hit a wall at 206/207mph no matter what I do to it that's all I can get out of it.
