Oooh, gonna need another Pantera now. Already have one stock and one lightly tuned.
 
New engine swap in the game. The engine from the Ford GT LM Spec II Test Car.

There are also other confirmed engine swappable cars with engines that were already in the game in the Engine Compatibility thread.
 
Has the criteria changed to get a clean race bonus?
I am sure that the only issue I had in the hypercar race at Le Mans, was that the AI hit me. No CRB.

It varies between races I feel like. In the money races (Sardegna, Le Mans, Spa 1hr, Tokyo WTC600), the only thing that seems to take away the bonus is if you get penalty for ignoring yellow flags. In other races, it's much more sensitive and slight contact with AI or walls, or going off track, seems to strip the bonus.

Yap, IIRC the money makes you mentioned where the only ones the CRB was a given thing, except for overtaking under yellows.
 
Wheels always had it tho.
Think it did in the 'owned wheels' section but I don't recall the notification being present in the wheel brand line-ups. I.e if you had a set of Rays equipped and were scrolling through Rays catalogue, the notification wasn't present IIRC - only in 'owned wheels' as I say.
 
Am I seeing PP recalculations?
A number of my 800PP Sardegna cars do not qualify for the Neo.Classical races.
All over PP limit.
Just checked my garage on lunch and can confirm none of my most frequently used cars PP have changed at all. All of my cars tuned for Sardegna and Sarthe at at exactly 800.00PP, Sarthe between 699.x and exactly 700.00PP just as before. Did not check all ~300 cars though so maybe if this did occur it’s only for specific cars or specific parts installed?

I believe i have one car that has gone much higher, but cant proove it. Nissan gtr r32 went from 670 to 720 but no proof
 
Two things I've noticed:

- A new indicator when filling up with fuel shows how much is needed until the end of the race.

- It seems the wear of rain/intermediate tires has changed to be less dramatic. I was able to finish both new rainy 10-lap races on with them only wearing to about half.

I agree with the tire wear, they definitely lasted longer for me.

The fuel gauge has always been that way, unless you’re doing endurance race.

The little diamond or triangle indicator above the fuel line when refilling that show how much more fuel is needed has always been there for me. Did they change it?

Great news about the tires though. Those IM wore way too fast (like the RS) and were incredibly unrealistic fast wearing before.
