When I did my first lap in this game I blew out my engine by shifting too late. Then a small collision damaged my suspension. I thought, "Cool, so much better than GT and Forza." Now I've had to go back and check to see if I had damage on. I've had a lot of serious crashes with absolutely no damage at all. We have a choice of visual only, performance and full damage. Why can't we have a slider for damage sensitivity? If you set the sensitivity to high then even a small collision will damage your car. If you set it to low then it would behave like it does now where even serious crashes leave your car undamaged most of the time. My guess is the damage is set low so that people don't become frustrated when the AI rams them.
