    Im driving Spa 1966 with track buildup: natural progression and time rate = 1x
    Say half way my first out lap i crash:whistling: and via esc -> start i start again in the pits. When i enter the track i already see a driving line...Dont know who laid it there but it wasn't me:unsure:.

    Second item: clutch. Im practising the Brabham with my H shifter and clutch. I have disabled all aids including manual clutch. But still im able to shift without using the clutch:O_o:....what is the aid for?

    O yeah...if some devver read this; please fix the replay "shadow contact to ground thing". Cars float over the track without toughing the wheels:rolleyes:.Great sim good work:thumbsup:

    There where no AI on track I assume for question 1?

    Question 2. In your own car, you can shift without a clutch as well. Now try it for a lot of laps in a row. Then the mechanic failure should come.
    Also, try stopping without pressing the clutch (or do a real good spin in the dirt). The car will stall then, and you have to restart it (make sure to map a key or button for it ;0).

    The shadow thing is under attention of the devs. They are working on it. No clue when it will be fixed though...

    i didn't know that not using the clutch would cause mechanical failures, i will try that on an offline test to see what happens :thumbsup:

    Hi Marco, Im not aloné on the track, there are AI cars but they did not finish a single lap in the time i crash and come back on track.
    Concerning the clutch....Im not going to try shifting without my clutch pressend in my private car...that Would ruin my gearbox. But i didnt know about the failure.
    *edit*: today i tested it. I had a practice session with multiple (10) AI cars. I went out 3rd. After 1 full lap at Spa, *plop* the full driving line was there. Apparently the game show's the bitmap after x time or rounds, but it looks very "cheap". Im not interested in high tech side track graphics like building etc. What i do care about are the on track graphics. I do not have to look at marbles, but a nice driving line would be great. I understand that the track dries up after rain. It takes lots of rounds and slowly the track starts to dry up. With the driving line it should be the same. A very slow build up. Anyways, ISI has about ten thousand things to do i guess...

    I will check into the issue at Spa, and report it if I can reproduce.

    About that drying line... Try to have a WET race, with 40 cars on track... Almost impossible, unless it POORS rain. Otherwise, it dries up pretty quick. There are a lot of factors involving the racing line and dry line. I will see what I can dig up ;)
