    Why is that a bug? you've just gone from 4th to 1st, I would expect some sort of happening.

    I thought it was a bug on console with the T300 if I'm not mistaken. Has it happened before? Did you report it on the PCars Forum?

    AFAIK it is a bug ... it only shows "Mechanical Fault" because the engine blew
    The devs are aware of it - more infos in the official pCARS Forum

    There is no word on the change being in the next update. They have coded a safety to help with this problem and it was recently tested. Whether it makes the 1.4 or the next update is unknown.
