    It does help.
    Enter the following command in "properties" through Steam: -skipcrowds

    Go to your library and right clic on Project CARS, then go to the bottom of the list. Look for:

    Properties

    Set Launch Options...

    Then type this in: -skipcrowds (yes, the dash must be included)

    Let me know how you make out.

    Yes. Here is another good one:
    -fpscapXX

    The xx represent your chosen number. I use 60. So, -fpscap60

    Jim, if you have an FPS counter could you check to see how high you Max out during any given point in gameplay? I'm just curious.

    You can better use the -fpscap command, vsync introduces input lag.

    Yes Jim, Frank is right. It will keep your FPS from spiking in the menus as well. This spiking can introduce more heat into your system. With FPS cap enabled it will run smoother and avoid heat build up. Try it with and without V Sync and see how it goes. You may then be able to increase some graphic settings one at a time to get a little more bang for your buck.

    Sorry I hadn't mentioned this earlier.

    Adaptive only makes it worse; the input lag overall is less but it will be more erratic. On normal v-sync the input lag stays constant. So best is to not use it at all, in any form.

    Yeh, I sometimes have tearing too, but it doesn't bother me. I rather have tearing once every hour than input lag ^^.

    I don't think I drive fast enough to be bothered by input lag though.
