    Hi,
    Anyone else getting problems with full throttle, and engine suddenly spinning to max in higher gears, without the car actually accelerating? I have this is in all cars.

    Got a video of this problem? Don't really understand what you are trying to say.

    Is the clutch calibrated correctly?

    Sounds like mechanical clutch slip, if that's so then Automobilista are taking this Sim far too seriously.;)

    Haven't noticed this at all. If this happened IRL you would assume your clutch was slipping. Not something odd with your clutch calibration or something similar?

    Thanks Paul. It was indeed a clutch setting problem. Thanks all for replying!

    I see a great opportunity for someone to merge a car mechanic sim with a sim-racing title so you have to spend hours in the garage fettling your car before you can go to the track. I would certainly buy it :)
