    Hello all.
    I have been enjoying the CART Extreme mod very much. I have noticed that on longer races, such as at Road America, the AI does not seem to suffer nearly as much tire wear as I do. They actually get faster as the run goes on, while I am losing grip.

    I also found that there is no TireManagement entry in the Talent file for each CART driver. I added those and experimented, but no matter the entry, it seems to have no effect.

    There is indeed some tire wear modeled; if I turn tire wear off entirely, they do get even faster (as do I).

    Does anyone know a method to tweak the tire wear values for the mod to relate more closely to how the player tires wear?

    Thank you.
    Alan

    Ahh . . . Thank you for the guidance, BoogerMac. I guess it may be best to run like F1 and shoot for hot out laps leading up to a pit stop. Muscling a car on greasy tires at the end of a fuel run is part of the intensity of a long race.

    For the Official Classes i dont have any problem with Tyre Wear, seems great realistic.

    Its not the Game's fault that on a Mod it don't work perfectly.
    Maybe the modder of the Mod should give it a look to improve it

    Tire wear on the AI Reiza cars included in the game works as expected.

    Fair enough. Certainly didn't mean to fault developers for a limitation of a mod . . . . an amazing mod at that. Edited my comment.
