    Pit stops are a little messed up in this game at the mo, sometimes you even get a time pen coming out of the pits :lol:

    Have you tested the tracks you are running for pit stop issues? @Chin2112 @GTAndy36

    @Zakspeed_TV I think the time penalty only happens in Practice. At least that's what we discussed in our last test evening. You might know if that's definitely true or not Zak as you've been racing online more than we have so far...

    ... if you know that it happens in races, I'll do some testing.

    No its online mate, also tire choice can get mixed up. If you want fair racing it could be a good idea not to have pit stops, until its patched.

    Up to @Chin2112 of course. But I'm sure he'd agree.

    Its a private lobby. Its only a shakedown so you're not missing the main championship. Not sure why psn isn't allowing me to add people though

    copy paste from a previous post I did

    Hey there,
    this link contains a LOT of usefull information about the tuning in pCARS.
    http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?22501-Project-Cars-Tuning-Guide-Spring-amp-castor-guide-(3C-amp-3D)-Now-live!

    The 2nd post in that thread explains that optimum tyre temp is around 80-100C
    Oil temp should not exceed 100C for longer races
    Temperature difference between inside and outside of the tyre should not exceed 10C

    Especially the Q&A part is very interesting. a bit of a read though :)

    And here is a bit of information (not a lot) about the telemetry:
    http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?23037-Telemetry-detail

    This is a general tuning guide with a lot of helpfull tips:
    http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?23371-Car-setup-guide

    Most of my knowledge comes from these links (and some GranTurismo and SBKX in the past), but if you have any questions Ill try to answer them. A little bit of tuning can definitely make a lot of difference though.

    Thanks to everyone who turned up last night. After the racing last night we have decided to change the format slightly. It will now be 2 races a night, both 20 minutes long. This is to make it more fun for everyone as it sucks if you spin off on the first lap and then end up racing by yourself.

    The OP has been updated. Hope to see you all next week.

    Thanks for all this man.

    I'll definitely be doing a lot of tuning work later down the line. Until my Thrustmaster wheel can be sorted out so the centre spring is off, there's not much point in me doing anything, let alone tuning.
