    hadn't wtcc and stcc 2006-2010 settable brake duct size? here in the game they aren't and it seems they don't stay in the optimum working temperature all the time. GTR2 has them settable

    Pretty sure the open wheel classes have brake duct size options?

    yes, open wheel have them.

    for wtcc and stcc...this is for wtcc

    For each brake, one cooling duct with a maximum internal
    diameter of 10 cm is allowed, or two cooling ducts with a
    maximum diameter of 7 cm. This diameter must be
    maintained over at least 2/3 of the distance between its
    entrance and exit
    These ducts may be made of composite material.
    Only the following mounting points are authorised for the
    fixation of the lines to bring the cooling air to the brakes:
    - original apertures in the bodywork, e.g. for fog lamps, may
    be used to bring the cooling air to the brakes;
    - the connection of the air ducts
    to the original apertures in the bodywork is free provided that these apertures remain
    unchanged;
    - if the car does not have any original apertures, two (2)
    circular apertures of a maximum diameter of 10 cm, or an
    equivalent elliptical section, may be made in the front
    bumper;
    - the disc protection plates
    may be removed or their shape
    modified.

    so maybe it is not settable, but in this game I feel brakes don't stay all time in the best working temperature. maybe it is necessary a little tweek to these rows

    BrakeOptimumTemp=450.0 // optimum brake temperature in Celsius
    BrakeFadeRange=450.0 // temperature outside of optimum that brake grip drops to half (too hot or too cold)

    No worries, It was a general post to all as others drivers might see the post and change the settings. And then wonder why they can't get into servers.. :)
