    Im trying to remove that automatic clutch from a dodge omni I downloaded. Here is the ini:

    engine
    {
    x=0
    y=.05
    z=0.5
    size=.25
    mass=90.9
    max_rpm=5950
    idle_rpm=800
    stall_rpm=300
    start_rpm=1500
    autoclutch_rpm=800
    starter=1
    starter_torque=80
    curve_torque=torque.crv
    max_torque=160.65
    shifting
    {
    automatic=0
    shift_up_rpm=5000
    shift_down_rpm=3000
    time_to_declutch=200
    time_to_clutch=100
    time_in_neutral=100
    time_to_declutch_down=120
    time_to_clutch_down=240
    time_in_neutral_down=60
    }
    can someone help me?

    The best way is to disable option directly in racer (in option menu) ;)

    Its simple really, set the autoclutch_rpm below the stall rpm. Just don't set it to 0, as that will tell Racer to set the autoclutch_rpm as it sees fit. So in the case of my Omni, any number between 1-299 will work.

    I'll quickly debunk the other two, deleting the autoclutch_rpm will just tell Racer to set it automatically to whatever it sees fit. and disabling in Racer, while it used to work. Racer seems to now go off of the car.ini instead.

    Moin,
    if you remoove it, racer fall back to the default ini...
    The best way is like skybh said...disable it in racer options...

    I agree with setting the clutch to manual can be done using "Raven 1.3.1 version" for racer and selecting view menu by ticking "show menu" under the "Mics options", starting racer showing the MENU, open options to show "Game play" in menu and turning off "Auto Clutch".

    Of course some of those Auto clutch setting in the *.ini file you have shown should be edited with a comment at the start of the line as shown below...
    ; use a semi colon ( ; ) to comment out each line and turn the command code off ( ; ) excluding the () brackets.

    better yet is to add your name after the "comment out colon" so you know it was your editing as..

    ; mdbobbo was a running command ; autoclutch_rpm=800

    this way you know what you changed and can put it back to the original if you need to.

    engine
    {
    x=0
    y=.05
    z=0.5
    size=.25
    mass=90.9
    max_rpm=5950
    idle_rpm=800
    stall_rpm=300
    start_rpm=1500
    ; autoclutch_rpm=800
    starter=1
    starter_torque=80
    curve_torque=torque.crv
    max_torque=160.65
    shifting
    {
    automatic=0
    shift_up_rpm=5000
    shift_down_rpm=3000
    ; time_to_declutch=200
    ; time_to_clutch=100
    ; time_in_neutral=100
    ; time_to_declutch_down=120
    ; time_to_clutch_down=240
    ; time_in_neutral_down=60
    }

    probably the bottom six won't need to be commented out because it's not automatic
    automatic=0

    trial and error will give you the results and savve searching for the original *.ini file were you to delete a line in any *.ini file.

    with Complements from mdbobbo

    I thought there was a specific autoclutch on/off option per car?

    There was at one point, now its just using the autoclutch_rpm setting. 0 = Racer sets it to whatever rpm it feels is correct. 1 or greater is what you've set the clutch to be fully disengaged at.
    At least with 0.9.0 as I recall, the racer.ini autoclutch doesn't do anything if its set in the car.ini.
