    Hi everyone!

    I have just purchased game stock car.......very impressed! Love those minis!

    I do however have a few questions,

    When I pit, do simply just stop in the red box?

    Also how do I know when my tyres are going off? Is there a status screen or anything?

    Thanks
    Rich

    Whilst on track you can change your tyre selection (you can elect which tyres to change and can ask for a change of tyre pressures).
    Then just stop in the red box and a comment will show up in bottom left telling you how long pit stop is estimated to take.

    On track, you can cycle through the HUD display to show the pit menu (to make the above selections) and also a tyre wear screen. Can't remember the default key assignment as I have assigned it on to one of my wheel keys, but I think it's listed as LCD mode.

    is the tyre wear screen the same as the damage screen? (picture of a car)

    if so, which bit indicates the tyre life?

    the tyres themselves indicate the genearl temp, the vertical rows of green dots show the tyre wear, they gradually wear down and turn red. I tend to go by my lap times most of the time and can feel the grip going away, but I do refer to it as well.
