Can anyone shed some light on the cheating part? How do people cheat on PS4?
Never thought about this, although you would have to do this after crossing finish line I guess, so you don’t get taken back to start if lap.Im not 100% sure but here are some suggestions: You drive into Pit-Lane and dont drive into your Pit-Spot but select "Pitbox" via Menu. So you get a fueled car with fresh tires in not time. Otherwise it would take up to 30 sec. to fuel up and change tires.
I have to point out that if you want to go Stints with different tires (like first softs and than hard tires) you would have to go to the Menu to change at least tire pressure or you will not survive. (going Hard tires with the pressure you choose for soft would result in cold tires) So you would have to pit stop regulary and then change setups, i think this would be ok, but cost a bit more time but you could do your Strategy.
