How To Use Our ACC Setups On PC, Xbox & PS5
All of the ACC car setups on Sim Racing Setups can be used on both PC and consoles, as both platforms share the same physics engine. In this guide I'll show you how to install our setups on any platform.
Some of the setups on SimRacingSetup feature downloadable JSON files which most Assetto Corsa Competizione sim racers will be very familiar with.
However the majority of our setups were created on and for Xbox and PlayStation consoles racers. Therefor, because JSON files aren’t compatible with consoles, these setups are instead written in a format allowing for easy use with consoles.
In this guide, I’ll run through how to best use and install our Assetto Corsa Competizione setups on all platforms, including Xbox and PS5.
Using ACC setups on Xbox and PlayStation
The process below is the best workflow to install ACC car setups on both Xbox and PlayStation versions of ACC. This does also work with PC where a JSON file isn’t available.
- Find an ACC car setup you’d like to use
Browse our collection of ACC car setups, to find one that you wish to download or purchase. A lot of our car setups are free, with some being premium setup bundles. You can find our selection of ACC car setups here.
- Load up Assetto Corsa Competizione
Start up ACC on your Xbox or PlayStation, and load up a practice or race session. Then open up the car setup screen.
- Optional Step: If you have downloaded a JSON setup
If you have downloaded a car setup that has a JSON setup file, you can view the car setup using this recommended website accsetupcomparator.com. Simply open the website and then drag and drop or load the car setup you wish to see. The website will then show you all of the setup figures.
- Enter the car setup into ACC
The final step is to copy the car setup from our website or the JSON file readout into Assetto Corsa Competizione. Once you have input all setup values, save the car setup in ACC, and test it out on track.
Using ACC car setups on PC
Some of the ACC car setups on our website include a downloadable JSON file, so you can save time when installing our setups. If the car setup doesn’t include a JSON file, you can still follow all of the steps above to use our setups on a PC.
- Find a setup you’d like to use
Browse for ACC setups, filtering them by the car you are driving. After clicking on a car setup, or downloading a setup bundle, you will be able to download the setup JSON file. Download this to your PC.
- Install the JSON file
You will have to move the downloaded JSON file to your ACC setups folder, which you can find here – C:\Users\YourNameHere\Documents\Assetto Corsa Competizione\Setups. Ensure you copy the JSON file to the correct folder structure within your setups folder which should look like \Setups\CarNameHere\TrackNameHere
- Load up ACC and test the setup
Once you have installed the car setups you’d like to try using the step above, boot up Assetto Corsa Competizione, jump into a practice or race session and load the car setup. Then head out on track and try out the car setup.
How to use a JSON setup file on console?
If you have downloaded an ACC car setup that includes a JSON file, this file unfortunately cannot be used on an Xbox or PlayStation. However, you can still use the setup.
You can load the car setup on a PC using a website called accsetupcomparator.com. This website allows you to drag and drop a JSON file to see the setup values. Simply, load your JSON file into the website, and then copy over the setup values from the site into ACC on your console.

I hope this quick ACC tutorial helps. And hopefully, you’ll find our Assetto Corsa Competizione setups fun and fast to drive with.
Just don’t forget to adjust your tyre pressures after loading a new ACC car setup! Your tyre pressures are vital to how your car behaves on track, and any changes to your car setup will alter your tyre’s pressures on track and their temperatures.
For this reason, you should always adjust your tyre pressures after making car setup changes in ACC, or input the recommended tyre pressures if the setup recommends some.
