    Hi all. Just recently I have noticed a strange anomaly when running any mod or even just standard rfactor cars and track that at no particular interval the sim pauses for about 2 seconds then continues as though nothing happened. If you look at a replay of this phenomena all the cars suddenly stop and appear to sink into the track and then continue on their way! Has anybody else experienced this as I can not find out what's causing it and it makes a dam good sim next to usless. I have not installed any new mods and I have looked for external sources that may be responsible to no avail. Any idea's ?

    Thanks in advance.

    It could just be it means it's time for a fresh rFactor re-install, if you have eliminated all other possibilities.

    Is your copy of rfactor "bought" or did you find it on a torrent?

    It is a legitimate copy...It might just be time for a clean install

    Drivers all up to date?

    I remember I had the same glitch on RACE over a year ago (pauses were for several seconds however), can't remember how I fixed it though.

    The hard drive the game is running on been defragmented recently?

    It's a million-to-1 chance, but it just might work Premium

    Yep, same issue here. Found it while practising for the Clio's.

    System specs:

    Win 7 Pro 64
    Kaspersky 9 AV
    NVidia GTX 295
    Creative X-Fi Xtreme audio

    I have a few mods for rF: Clios, Caterhams, PCC07, trucks, Formula Vees

    Any similarities with others here?
