    Does this game feature controls for starter, ignition, pit limit and pit request?
    Do you always have to start the electronics and the engine manually, is it an automatic process or is there a manual / automatic option?
    Same for pit limit. Are you force tod manually disable and enable it, is it automatic or can you choose?

    Yes, R3E does have bindable controls for ignition, starter, pit limiter and pit request.

    If the controls for ignition and starter are bound, then you need to do things manually. If they are unbound then the game will automatically start your ignition/engine.

    You must always activate your pit limiter manually, or just stay below the pit speed limit yourself. If you don't you'll end up with a drive-through penalty.

    So, the pit speed limiter is...?
    - off by default
    - on but automatically switches off when you leave pits (eg Assetto Corsa)
    - on and forcing you to use a key or button to switch it off (rFactor 2)

    You need to turn it on and off yourself in Get Real mode.

    Also in e.g RDGTC you need to turn off the ignition for the pit stop to begin. Then you need to turn it on and restart the engine when the mechanics are done.

    I really like that feature

    You only need to do this if you have assigned controls to ignition/engine start. If they are unassigned then it does this automatically. Doesn't matter if it's the club or a league.

    Awww. So what you say is that because I have assigned them (for no good reason as I use auto clutch) I lose time on it!

    Well, in that case, I don't like the feature as much anymore!

    And the necessity to turn off engine for the pit stop also depends on car/series I believe.

    I believe you only need to turn off the engine when refueling in general. It might be not needed for the FR-X-17 and the FR-US.
