    So? That's what I said it's stupid.
    By now we should have animated pit crew pushing our cars to leave the pit box if other cars are blocking us like they do in real life :D not ghost cars

    Well the ghosts cars are in place because some of the sim racers requested this... cause they were all stupid to avoid cars in the pits. That goes back to beta testing when a lot of beta testers came on board...
    in the alpha we had solid cars... and at some point there were incidents in the pits and a small amount of ppl were crying like babies... so go figure.

    That sucks, in other sims this cause no issues. I've had people crashing other cars in pits because they were too used to iRacing style. Kinda funny they brag so much about simulation yet have this very arcadish feature.
    Do they have ghosts when cars spin or go off track too?

    also in massive pileups the cars in front turn into ghosts to avoid a whole field being taken out by one idiot in oval racing. not realistic but extremely convenient to keep the customer satisfied. works for me. sometimes you have these cars getting airborne in a ridiculous manner, they promptly become ghosts cause they shouldn't be up there in the first place, lol.

    Really excited for this new build. Tskuba will be awesome in the Mazda Cup and the Skippies. And time transitions are awesome!

    And, oh yes, it’ll take me only 5 minutes to install and another 5 minutes to find a fun race. That’s why I pay iRacing for. Not for everybody, but works for me!

    Excuse my lack of car knowledge, but where's the Formula Renault 3.5? After downloading the update, I don't see it in the list of cars. Is it called something else?

    Thanks!

    Wishful thinking on my part, I guess. I thought that it was free like the two tracks.

    My mistake...Thanks.
