Car Damage

Evening all,

I have noticed of late that when i have been racing I can have collisions with cars and not get ANY car damage at all. I have just finished a single player AI race around Zolder and spun during the race, doughnutted the car and in the process was rear ended, and then hit by a few other cars - when pulling away i noticed the car wasnt crabbing or damaged in the least bit. I've got all damage settings on as far as im aware and applied Get Real. What am i missing? I seem to remember there being mechanical damage too, with the gearbox slipping etc. I dont get any of this anymore...has something changed? What options do i need to check in order to get the full simulation experience.
you get visual damage at present , bent bits
then you get aero damage
engine and gearbox damage
you need to set damage to visual
and mechanical damage on

this will change soon ish with
suspension damage
flatspots etc happening
then the settings will be changed

Ok, thanks mate. That's a shame, that's all the settings I have on! Oh well. I haven't had a gearbox problem in years in the game, maybe I've just got better at driving then. Thanks anyways.
