    I have version 1.11 and my favorite car is a custom Jaguar E-Type I downloaded, if I do a quick race all the other Jags just sit on the grid and don't move, then I get a yellow flag and they end up in the pits.

    If I use AC cars it's fine and I downloaded the custom Jaguar XJ-13 from here and it works fine too, anyone had this problem and know a fix for it? It seems to be in the car files somewhere and not in the game as other cars work fine.

    Well it's still got me stumped I have even swapped out different files from the data folder of the E Type and the XJ-13, ai.ini, drivetrain, engine, setup etc and still no change, just can't work out what is different in the E Type. On the starting grid you hear the working cars rev up ready to take off, with the E Type you hear nothing, their brake lights go off but they just sit there.

    Does anyone have a working E Type jag? Or could download the same one I did and try it on theirs?

    Google "Jaguar E-Type 4.2 1965" I got mine from assettocorsa.club.

    mine is working ;).
    in the ai.ini file check that the 'gear up' value is NOT = to or GREATER than the engine limiter value in the engine.ini file
    if it is greater set it to 50 to 200 rpm below the the limiter value

    Which circuit?...is it a mod circuit?...I get this (or similar) prob on Norisring circuit and a couple of others.
    I put it down to bad AI programming but I could be wrong.
    Regards

    It doesn't matter what track I have tried mod circuits, and circuits that come with the game and still the same. Other cars work fine but not the E-type.

    Yeahhhhh it works, I went to the AI.ini file and gear up was set to 7400rpm (I downloaded from 2 different sources and both had this value) and the engine limiter value in engine.ini was set to 5500rpm. So I changed the gear up value to 5250rpm and voila it works fine.

    Thank you so much!

    Now back to racing.

    Keith, check in the engine.ini file that the value of RPM_THRESHOLD (under the DAMAGE section) is LESS or = to
    the LIMITER value (under the DATA section)

    The carts are set to rev to 15000 but the damage threshold is at 13500 so if you over rev
    you going to have nuts and bolts all over the place :O_o:
