Question bout the car. What is going on when shifting at high revs (and maybe not lifting throttle enough), The revs remain high even after another shift, but the tires don't seem to be spinning, Is it just losing power through the diff or something?

I think it's made this way to somehow force you to either use the clutch, or lift properly.

Yep you gotta lift when changing.

I was just wondering if I could see what was going on in a real live sense (like through motec or something). Sometimes I wish we had some smell-o-vision feedback with racing sims cuz I would be smelling burning clutch when it happens :).

(unfortunatelY I know what burning clutch smells like, it smells like burning $).

I do I do I do! from one lap to the next it seems to change. Even lifting after the revs to pretty high sometimes doesn't allow things to catch. I'm guessing the clutch gets overheated and decides it doesn't want to transfer power.

Must have done something right with the setup, cuz I got on earlier and thought I was struggling only to realize that I was about 1s faster than I did my last time out. :). I think the left front tires will be totally shot at the end of the race though.

do you use auto clutch fred ,if you do try no auto clutch if the clutch is not put in properly you will get a crunching gear sound with this on though, and it wont go into gear

Can you put me down as a maybe, thanks. I had a go in this little screamer with practice for the Thursday Historic race, but couldn't make it on the day, so would love to have another go.

Hi guys. Hoping to make this one. Had a go in single player mode and cant find a way to quicken the steering. Farted around with the car settings and the thrustmaster settings but still left with to much rotation of the wheel to get round a corner, making it difficult and not enjoyable. Only car Ive ever encountered this issue. Am i missing something obvious? Knowing me, probably yes :)
