    Hi guys I decided to use no auto clutch in a race, so when all the cars are on the grid I am left standing there at the start with motor not runnig until I press the ignition and start button, but by that time the whole field is a quarter of a lap in front of me, is there anyway to have the motor running at the start of the race cheers

    Hi Noel, that doesn't sound right, turning off the auto clutch should not turn the engine off at the start of a race. It must be in gear or somehow stalling the instant you start. It is very easy to stall from a standing start. Make sure your clutch is working, and make sure you press the pedal ALL the way before selecting 1st.

    That happens to me only with F3. I just re-run the engine, because there is enough time before race start, and thatĖ™s it.
